“So you missed me?” she giggles.
“Meanie!’ she yells.
“You can’t miss someone who’s with you all the time, can you?”
“Oh God, don’t you make me cry again, now..”
“I was born to make brilliant people like you realize …. When my job is done, I go.”
“Realize what? Go where?”
“Realize that you’re brilliant.”
“Awww. Don’t go anywhere though. Stick around. I’d go mad without you around. And so would you.”
“Yeah, true. What will I do for entertainment if you aren’t around?”
She envelops him in a hug. “May I ask you something?”
“Like my answer is going to stop you from asking.”
“Well, you’d never know until you try right?”
“Stop maroing my own dialogues to me!”
“You know, you haven’t said a nice thing to me in ages…”
“You know that’s not what I meant. Say something nice so I can sleep in peace.”
“Your choice in clothes sucks. Now sleep in peace.”
“How is that a nice thing? “
“It is if you actually think about it. Now get some sleep.” he takes off her glasses, kisses her forehead and tucks her in.
Five minutes later, he walks in.
“You’re amazing.” he whispers. “And get used to being loved. It is so easy to love you.”
She smiles in her sleep. Pretending to be asleep was never this difficult.
