He took a breath to make a quick, glib answer, held it, and exhaled, thinking better. Gently, he thought. Your eyes, he said. My eyes? John nodded. They are a deep, deep blue. Like an ocean at twilight. But when you are happy, or excited about something, or are talking about a topic you are passionate about, they light up. It makes your entire face come alive. He cupped her cheek, stroking her eyebrow with his thumb. He kissed her lips softly. Your face is beautiful, too. When you smile, everyone wants to be near someone who is so happy. Its like you have some sort of magnetic force that draws people to you. And Goddess, Aggie, you are so damn smart. Im not a dummy. No one in the family is.

Two hours a week on the exercise bike, a step class on Sunday at Hildas gym, and a tanning bed at the same place. She wont let me skip a day, said Agatha, stretching languorously beneath the gentle pressure of his hands. Where the hell did you learn massage?
