(a.k.a. Exchange 28)

It was a couple of hours before Midnight. We decided to look for a place to eat. 

"I can't believe we're here!", I said, smiling from ear to ear as I gazed around one of the sadder areas of our favorite city.

"Are you happy?", you asked, putting your arms around me.

"Very", I replied.

Three simple words, then again, when it came to you, your questions never really are just questions. And your words never really are just words. They're an expression, a declaration, they're your legs and arms and heart, wrapped around me.
