We took the short drive in silence. I was content to steal occasional glances at him and breathe in his familiar smell. Every time I stole a peak at him, he had an incredibly sexy smirk on his face. I wasn’t sure if I was the cause of that smirk but I sure hoped so.
I pulled up in front of his building and a put my car in park, leaving the engine running. “Do you want to come upstairs?” He had a hopeful look on his face and I hated to wipe it off but I had homework to do and I wasn’t quite ready to be back in his apartment alone.
“I should really get back. I have a paper to finish and it’s getting kind of late.” I sent him a soft smile, which he returned. I have never felt so much emotion from one smile. There was something so genuine and warm about it and I tried to capture it in my mind to hold for later.
“I understand.” He reached over and cupped my cheeks in his hands, planting a light kiss on my lips. “See you in class tomorrow, Baby”.
“I thought I was Gorgeous.”
“You are gorgeous, baby.”
He rubbed his thumb over my lower lip and I couldn’t help but kiss it. “I kind of like the sound of that,” I whispered, leaning into his hand.
“Goodnight.” He kissed me one more time before getting out of the car and disappearing into his building.
At this moment, I felt like everything was right in the world. I felt something I had never felt before and if this was what following my heart felt like, I may never get back up again.
