She was giddy inside. Happy that Mr. Sexy Brown Eyes was sitting across from her. Happy that he remembered her habit. She gave a small smile staring back at her notebook. Than she realized she had to actually write. She scratched her arm and picked up her pen. Words flowed on the page in his presence. It was as if he was her muse. She liked that thought.
