"Do you? - Good." He smiled. It was reassuring to hear her say so. He was worried that he'd made her feel unwelcome, or begun to. He knew he wasn't the best at hiding what he felt, never mind explaining it, and the last thing he wanted to do was scare her off.
He reached up to pull her hand carefully from his hair, holding it just a few inches away from their faces. "And ... thank you. Yes. That's the best way to begin, or so everyone says, isn't it." He smiled a little. "I'd like to be. I'm afraid I don't have anything very impressive to tell you." He leaned in for a very shallow kiss. "Maybe I'll think of something, though, if you stay awhile." It sounded terribly lame the instant he said it, but he wasn't that sorry. Because ... he did want her to stay.
