It was nice holding hands with her and doing it consciously and not worrying about whether he was stepping over friendly boundaries. He rubbed his thumb over the back of her hand rather absently at those thoughts. "Though I can't say that you blushing is all that bad."
"Ah yes." They did rather both drop what they were doing. Then again it seemed that both of them got distracted by the journals alone since she'd been working on an essay and commenting with him. He had also been working on something and paying attention to his journal. Maybe he should set up specific times for the journal. "I would say I'm sorry for pulling you away from your essay, but I'm really not."
