He leans closer, and with his fingertip, removes the offending article.  I can feel the softness of his skin as he takes the tiny haul from the corner of my eye.  He smiles, proudly, displaying the crustie, then kisses the end of my nose.  The room is draped in shadows, and the pale blob resting on his nail is barely discernible in the dim light.

‘How can you do that?’I say.

    Just found time to read your new story. Beautiful. Loved the photo, the scene, the description of lovemaking. Extremely sensitively written. Initially I thought they were a married couple. Then relised it was a long relationship. I wondered whether this was a long term affair, but wasn’t sure about the relationship until the ‘phone conversation. Really enjoyed this Sally. There was a sadness – about Christmas. Lovely story.

    • I wanted the reader to go on a journey with the couple, Lyn. Where they are lost in each other, then reality slowly starts to seep through. I’m so glad you enjoyed it – and thanks for leaving a comment.
