Orion's smile was more than enough to make Halle smile in return. She was often all smiles – bright and cheerful, vivacious, laughing. Orion was much more subdued, calm in comparison, less prone to outbursts of any kind. For some, he was probably devilishly hard to read.
Halle had gotten used to him, though. They had taken their time becoming friends, and she had learned what his subdued expressions meant, how to read between some of his lines. He was... steady. Which was funny, because Romani weren't really considered the most stable people. But in comparison to Halle's outgoing personality, Orion was quiet and stable.
When his fingers touched her chin, Halle couldn't help but smile, her lips curved against his as she leaned a little into his kiss. It was warm and sweet, lingering without being pushy. Although she had only been kissed a handful of times in her life, Halle thought this was easily the most pleasant kiss she had ever experienced – full of shyness and sweetness.
