She turned and glowered at him laughing at the look on her face. Yet a strange feeling stirred in her chest, a sort of delicious warmth that is both subtle and indescribable at once.

“So we’re done,” she said, relieved that they had accomplished what they needed to do for the day. “Yep,” he grinned.
