About Time

He walks over to her and smiles
She is busy scribbling away
He clears his throat and sits down
She looks up and smiles warmly

He holds her small hands in his
She seems startled by this act
He keeps looking at her quietly
She blushes under his intense gaze

He hopes she would understand
She had always been good at this
He was always short of words
She always had enough for them

He opens his mouth to speak up
She puts her hand on his mouth
He looks at her questioningly
She shakes her head in aย ‘no’

He wonders what that means
She beams and leans forward
He sharply exhales surprised
She was always a step ahead

He gentlyย seals their moment
She had been his best friend
He whispers softly “I love you
She grins “About time, you idiot*

      1. Actually, au contraire lately l’ve forgotten what ‘relax’ means :p however, when you’re too drained you end up writing somethin that wont exhaust you further, I think that’s what happened โค

  1. That was a great one! so sweet and romantic and then that last line,so good! I had a moment very similar to that with the last man who broke my heart, he finally said I love you and I said the same thing!! how funny is that! too bad he didn’t mean it…
