His words immediately brought a flush to her cheeks. Stephanie noticed that she had been blushing a lot more than normal lately, and that it was all his fault. She didn't mind the blushing, she supposed. It was just that it made her feel like a school girl.
Leaning forward, obedient to the pressure he applied to her neck, she melted into the kiss immediately. She realized then that feeling his smile is just as good as seeing it. She wanted to keep kissing him...especially after he stole her breath with that little nip. This little stolen moment reminds her just what she has to look forward to...of all the thousands of kisses he'll steal.
"You're cheesy and romantic," she decided with a bit of a grin, her eyes giving way to a bit of a sparkling amusement, "But I love it." She leaned back against the couch just a little bit, content with him there.
"I love you," she amended, the words carrying much more weight than they had when they were just friends. They, hopefully, told him everything he'd ever need to know.
