Tender Liaisons

We curled up on the bed after a lunch of Arby's fine cuisine.

"I'm taking a nap," she said. "I still haven't caught up on my sleep."

I lay beside her and watched as she pulled my covers around her and closed her eyes.

"I love you," I said softly.

Her eyes fluttered open.

"What?"

"I love you."

"And all this time I thought you were gay," Rosa replied jokingly. "I thought you would never get the hint."

We burst out laughing and held each other. I then snuck in here to write about it. She is fast asleep in the bed.

btw.. i liked your previous blog template better. it gave me a feel of openness - this is more like from a confined drawing room.

This really did make me laugh out loud. Rosa is such an endearing soul. I'm with night on the template. The others were ok, This one seems smallish. Have a great afternoon.

Yay! I knew she would be receptive. You swank man, you! ;o) I am so glad you did it. I was worried you might chicken out... I mean, that was a big thing you said there. Falling for your best friend is one of the best feelings in the world. Trust me... five years and two beautiful twin boys later and I still feel the same with him as I did back when.

This is such a crock! Am I the only one that sees this entire blog as a way to get you hooked on a harlequin romance?

your writing is hopeful and inspiring. you give me faith in things I've lost faith in.

just thought you should know that you're making a difference.

Anonymous, why do you read if it bothers you so much? Surely there must be other blogs for you to spend your valuable time on.

You just made a person who fights not to cry due to embarrassment tear up. Congratulations. I hope that the two of you can always be as happy as you are now.
