Die Writing

I may be overthinking this.


“I… ha…” he started, then grinned madly, stuck his hands in his pockets and stared at his shoes. Half breathing, half giggling he wrestled with that one word, that innocent simple word that has both the lightness and the weight of the whole world. The he looked up at her again, smile stretching ear to ear. Maybe he didn’t need to say anything – his composure betrayed every last syllable already.

Sitting on the counter, she leaned forward with the same grin, listening and waiting. Her shoulders were drawn up, her whole body wound up like a jack-in-a-box. The muffled giggles they shared was perhaps the best conversation they’ve ever had.

“I’m in love with you,” he finally managed, and started laughing uncontrollably, nearly falling down. Somewhere in the incessant stream of laughs and giggles pouring from him, the word “LOVE” kept bobbing up over and over again, sparkling.

And she – she just beamed.
