The clock was ticking away and that was the only sound in the room. She held his hand and squeezed it. Her hands were so small that they were lost in his. She snuggled up to him and felt a warm glow inside her. He wasn’t saying anything. In her head she was trying to decide what he was thinking. At that very moment, he said “so, what are you thinking??” She wanted to say “you” but it somehow didn’t seem like the right thing to say. The darkness seemed like a blessing ‘cos she was thankful that he couldn’t see her blush. She just said “nothing in particular. Just generally thinking.” He ran his fingers through her hair. She played with his fingers. She loved his long fingers. He touched her so softly that it was almost like he was afraid of breaking her. She turned to look at him. In the darkness, only his outline was visible. Suddenly she wanted to hug him and tell him how much she loved him. But she was scared and all she could manage was “are you feeling sleepy?” He gave her a peck on the cheek and said “no darling.”

He could barely see her in the darkness. The only thought in head was “She is so special. she makes me feel so special.” He felt like the luckiest guy on earth sitting with her. Even the silence between them was beautiful. It was almost like they didn’t need words to communicate. She squeezed his hand and he said “so, what are you thinking??” He hoped she would say her thoughts were about him. But she jus said “nothing in particular. Just generally thinking.” She was playing with his fingers and he was straining to look at her eyes in the dark. “those eyes” he thought, “they’re beautiful. When she looks into my eyes I get lost in them. There is something almost magical about them.” He suddenly wanted to tell her how much she meant to him. But he was afraid of breaking the spell. Suddenly she said “are you feeling sleepy?” there was so much he wanted to tell her. He wanted to tell her that he was hopelessly in love with her. But he just said “no darling.”
