Stopping in front of one of those old fortune-teller machines to check it out, he smiles and looks at me. “Want to see where you rate in love?” He says among the loud noise of the crowd at the fair.
“Not really.” I said.
“Oh come on, I dare you!”
“Okay fine, but these things never work right. It’s the luck of the draw to what it tells you.”
“Okay, here, try your luck and see what it foretells.” He hands me a coin. I place it in the slot and I hold the lever as the light goes up and down and finally stops.
“You are both Naughty but Nice AND Smoldering! What??!?” He is grinning from ear to ear with laughter in his eyes.
“That’s not supposed to light up but one thing.”
“Well it obviously knows where you are on this meter!” He says as he comes up behind me and wraps me in his arms. “Now let’s go home so that you can show me.”
“And you know I will!” I say as I turn to him and we kiss. He grabs my bum as I wrap my arms around his neck, pulling me up to clasp my legs around his waist. We catch our breath, unwind from one another and move to head through the cluster of people to the car.
