“Do you mind if I keep hold of your hand?” he asks haltingly.
“Oh,” I look down at our joined hands, “yeah that’s fine,” I reply stupidly as I look back up at his face.
He is smiling and my breath catches. A ray of sun breaks through the clouds and hits him directly in the face. We had both removed our sunglasses when we were sitting.
“You are beautiful,” I whisper, as my right hand of its own accord reaches to cup his cheek. I am frozen in this instance staring into his eyes and then warmth spreads from my hand up my arm and my stomach flips again. His eyes are a deep blue and they are full of warmth. “I feel like I know you, like really know you. There seems to be something about you...” I trail off, realizing I am still touching him, standing very close to him.
