Last night I was interrupted by Randy’s music… and then we started talking… and it got late… and I crashed. But I have to write about the rest of ‘library night’… so I can read it over and over again and relive it every time…
Ethan and I really did study. But we also had fun. So much fun. He laughed at me for my diligent color-coded highlighting all over my book. And I teased him about the study cards he made. But those turned out to be really helpful. In more ways than one…
We split the cards and quizzed each other. He asked me one of the study card questions—the melting point of mercury. I didn’t know the answer. Mostly because I was at my melting point. I pretended to be thinking… concentrating. But I was faking it. I grabbed the card out of his hand. When he tried to get it back, I extended my arm behind me and leaned away from him. But being the perfect guy that he is, he leaned with me, reaching for the card.
Dear God, he was practically on top of me. I wanted to toss the card, grab his head in my hands, and kiss him. Oh, I didn’t. But the moment kind of… lingered. And I caught his eyes and forgot everything. And after that perfect lingering moment, he grabbed the card from me and sat up.
He was closer to me after that. Knees touching. Nudging me with his shoulder. Touching my arm. But we just studied.
And the melting point of mercury is 234.32 kelvins.
