you set your finished cup of coffee down on the table and head over to the kitchen counter. picking up your keys, you washes down the coffee with a gulp of water and a mint. checking the clock hanging above the doorframe, you fish around in a drawer for a stick-it note and a marker. writing him a little note, you sign it off with a heart, and stick it on the coffee pot. as you pull your jacket on, you hear a trilling voice coming from the bedroom. standing still, you listen. your lips curve up into the widest smile as you see him dance into the kitchen, singing a made up song with lyrics consisting of i love yous and your name. he cuts the song off with a squeak, a reddened face, and a soft, "i thought you left." you continue to point your blinding smile in his direction.
"you know what? maybe i won't go to work today. come on, let's go for a walk." you shrug your jacket off and fit his hand perfectly into yours.
"and you can sing me your new song while we walk."
