He was waking up. It must have been very early in the morning. She could hear birds outside the window. She was still half asleep when she felt something on her hand: A soft kiss. He kissed her hand softly, which was on her pillow near his side, before getting off the bed. She listened, and she listened carefully. The kiss said, ‘I love you.’
