He had his hands on her, one on the small of her back, slightly pressing her body into him, the other stroking her brown wavy hair. His fingers slightly dipping into the strands, as his fingers run down.
‘So that’s my life, not too depressing for you, eh?’ he says, looking down at her.
She raises her head from his chest, letting his hand fall from her hair. Leaning her face towards his, she gently kisses his forehead, casting her eyes down at his. Smiling slightly as she brushes his hair from his face
You didn’t have to tell me all this now.
Pressing her forehead against his, as if he could receive her thoughts by touch.
Do you trust me?
‘You okay?’ he asks.
Whispering into her ear, he says ‘Tell me the first thing that pops into your head.’
She bites her bottom lip, sits up, and rests her elbows on his chest.
‘Did you know pineapples can technically eat you?’
‘What?’ He says, raising an eyebrow.
‘The enzymes or whatever in pineapples can dissolve your skin, that’s why after eating them your lips tingle,’ she replies, looking at him seriously, her head slightly tilted.
‘Beautiful. Sounds like bullshit, but beautiful,’ he says as he leans in to kiss her, she lets his lips touch hers before pulling away.
She rests her head back down onto his chest, turning her face from his. Not what you wanted to hear. Squeezing her eyes shut, as he wraps his arms around her once more. I’m sorry.
