Chapter 138 - Affection

"Why are you laughing?!" I became uneasy.

His laughter died down. "I'm sorry. Your reaction was amusing."

Did I really look that funny?

"And I'm just relieved," he added.

He moved closer and gave me a pat on the head. Instead of pulling his hand back like usual, he moved on to caress my cheek.

"M-Mr. Shark?" My tongue slipped. "What if someone is watching us right now?"

"We're not in Aqua Chrysalis anymore, Butterfly. We can do whatever we want," he said and slowly pressed his lips against mine.

When he moved back, he gave a little smirk. "I love you too."
