The bright sky of the afternoon waned to gray shadows and the light breeze began to blow harder. Nick gathered up the blanket as I fiddled with my phone. I’d taken a few shots of the blanket in the leaves, the trees, and fading sunshine.
“Do you mind?” I held up the phone and smiled convincingly.
“One of you, one of…us.”
He shrugged, put the knapsack back on the ground and turned towards the camera, posing. “Duck face?” He asked teasing with a smile.
I shook my head, letting out a loud laugh. Click. Covering my mouth with my hand, I quickly looked at the picture I’d taken of him on my phone. It sobered me. He was so handsome, I ached. And still it didn’t do him justice. It hadn’t captured his heart.
“You and I.” He came up next to me and encircled my waist with his arm. I could feel his warm hand lazily skimming my hip. I held up the phone. “Ready?”
He tucked his cheek next to mine, skin to skin. His face had a faint feel of stubble. He smelled of leather, and musk, and…man. I clicked a few pictures. He turned his lips to my cheek and kissed me. Click.
“Do you mind if I?” He pulled his phone from his back pocket, settling back close to me.
“Sure.” We posed again.
I looked down at our feet. Mine in high black boots and his in the calf-skin shoes. I aimed the phone. Together in a park in Chicago on a sunny day, I’d started to fall in love.
