She was staring solemnly into space, when he stole a glance at her.
She was always quiet, and deep in thought, and had a mild laugh that was more like a song.
He wondered what she was thinking.
She noticed him looking at her in her reverie.
He was so full of life and seemed to have the fire and vigor of a hundred men. But he had a gentleness of spirit too that was like a soft and warm breeze that moved around.
She wondered what he was thinking.
She turned her head, looked at him and smiled, he met her eyes and smiled too, a little surprised & embarrassed that she had caught him staring.
They looked at each other, smiling and both amused, wondering if they were thinking of the same things too.
