It was the way her smile melted my heart

 

and as she laid there

 

…and as she laid there, back to the floor, eyes shining bright, laughing about something that happened years ago. I couldn’t help but watch.

It was the way her smile melted my heart, the way her laughter echoed throughout the room, the way she rolled around looking back at me.

And as I looked at her, her hair all tangled, wearing a t-shirt and sweats without a care in the world, I couldn’t help but fall even more in love.
