(I own nothing but my own imagination and rarely that, as it seems to be more in control of me than I am of it)
L is for the way you look at me.
He was watching her, she knew he was watching her, and he knew she knew. That was the game. It was getting to her as he continued to stare. Her finger tips had turned white as they gripped the desk and her pen was jabbing holes in the form.
She was going to crack first. He knew she was. He was going to make her look up.
"What?" she said, but her eyes never left the paperwork in front of her.
"What, what?" he said biting his cheek to keep from smiling. Not that she could see even if he did, stubborn woman refused to look at him.
"You're staring again"
"Are too" paper work forgotten, the pen lay still in her hand, but her gaze was burning holes in the desk, so determined not to give him the satisfaction of distracting her.
"D2?" he asked innocently.
She caved and glared at him.
"What?" her eyebrow arched and her gaze held his, not looking at all amused.
"R2D2" he shrugged "geddit?".
"Seriously? That's …" she struggled to find the word, still glaring at him.
"Genius?" he offered smiling.
"Pathetic" she decided, smiling herself as the mirth fell from his face and he pouted.
Then the thought struck him. His arms shot straight above his head and he yelled "I WIN!"
She jumped slightly at the shriek before rounding on him. "I wasn't aware we were playing a game, how do you win?"
"I made you look up from all…that" he gestured to the mound of paperwork on her desk "therefore I. WIN!"
He sat back smirking.
She pursed her lips, rolled her eyes and returned to her form.
"You know" she said, eyes glued to the form but her tone indicating playfulness
"There was a much quicker way of making me look up.".
She carried on writing, knowing she had his attention,
waiting for him to cave and ask her.
He tried not to, he really did, for all of 5 seconds, before he gave up.
"Oh really" he said leaning in closer so his elbows rested on the corner of her desk "and what would that be? Just for future reference.".
She took a deep breath. Now or never.
"You could just tell me you love me again.".
As his jaw dropped, she bit her lip to hold in the smile.
