As I stare into into Ryan’s now changed face. I realize he did this for me. I feel so much guilt. I was just upset that Ryan had blown me off after being so attentive. I feel so insecure. He’s not my usual type and I don’t know for sure what he sees in me. Insecurity is not a good decision making tool.
“I’m sorry.” I offer. I don’t think I realized how out of my depth I feel. “I used to guys that are bigger jackasses. I dont’t know hoe to react to you.”
“It’s okay. I’m a little freaked out at how well it’s been going. It’s been comfortable and exciting at the same until tonight,” Ryan laughs. “That doesn’t happen everyday.”
“I enjoy the time I spend with you, Ryan. I just have to learn to trust that you are real. I really didn’t mean you needed to change yourself for me. Not like that.”
“Good. I’m glad. That’s important to me.”
We look at each other. I can’t hold it in any longer.
“I love you.” We say it together.
“JINX?!” Laughing Ryan pulls me into his arms and I melt into a warm circle of love.
“Any idea how I change back? I kind of prefer my original face.”
“No idea. Maybe after a nap?” I wink suggest.
Ryan scoops me up and off he carries me.
ETA: We lived happily ever after. He woke up fine the next day. Just a bit of a hang over.
