It's just a tweak he surely thinks
as he reaches out to pinch her cheek.
It's nothing more, she assures,
touching her cheek which is now sore.

Its just a few words they exchange,
to him its probably harmless fun.
But could it hint at more, she wonders,
trying to decipher his motive, if he has one.

It was just a smile he gave today,
but she wonders if there's something,
another meaning, perhaps,
hidden behind parted lips and pearly whites.

They're just friends, she knows,
but she hopes they can be more.
And maybe that is what he's hoping too.
Maybe that is why her cheek is sore.


A/N: You know who you are. Say what you feel; do what you please. Tomorrow may be too late. And I'm too shy to put it all on the line.

I know it's been a long time since you've seen anything from me. Hopefully with the summer stretching ahead that will change.

In the mean time, enjoy this! And know that I have not given up on my story! I have simply been formulating ideas to make it that much more epic.

Enjoy! Review!
