While dancing after dinner, she looked everywhere but his eyes.

“Why aren’t you looking at me?” , he inquired.

“Because I am afraid”, she replied hesitating.

“What is it that you are afraid of when you are with me?”, he asked.

“Your eyes”, she replied with struggling effort to avoid them.

“What about my eyes, baby?”, he said with a laugh that depicted confusion and a touch of worry.

“What if I don’t see in your eyes what I want to see”, she finally said it with a sigh of relief.

“Oh Darling, but what if you do”, he put his hand on her shoulder in assurance.

Slowly she lifted her eyes to meet his and found everything she’d ever wanted to see. His eyes showed the infinite love he held for her in his heart.
