Close Call

She sat quietly, feeling her blood pulsing through her veins – especially at the right temple, where her headaches always seemed to start.

Redial.

And his voice filled her ears.

“A headache?” he asked. “You know what you need to do, right?”

Closing her eyes, listening to his soothing voice, she could see herself resting against his chest. The pulsations in her ear were no longer her own, but that of her lover’s heart beat. Feeling the rise and fall of his chest with each breath, she slowly inhaled the familiar scent of him; exhaled the stress of her morning.

So close, was he, she could still taste his kiss on her lips.

“I love you.”
