Quiet Conversation— 100 Word challenge

            I look at the alarm clock on my nightstand and stare in confusion at the woman beside me—she is still asleep and I have no recollection of inviting her into my bed. Sitting up, I realize the room is cold and I hurry to slide back under the covers. I curl around her and whisper a kind word into her ear. She turns and nuzzles me. A few moments of silence are followed by her light laughter. “I needed you last night.”

            Our gazes meet and lock. My vision clears and my memories stir. “You can tell me anything.”
