so we were stepping over sparkling paving stones the air we breathed seemed to sparkle and inhaling left a chill on my throat the flawless silence was broken only by the sound of her high heels and the occasional passing car I would glance at her when I thought it might go unnoticed and I loved how the orange glow from the streetlights made her look warm when everything around us was so cold
'can I tell you something' she said 'sure' 'you can't tell anyone though' 'okay......'
I stop walking
the silence suffocates me I can't stop my eyes from falling they search the pavement for answers for something to say I fake a smile and look back up laughing 'oh my god, that's amazing, congratulations"!
I put my arm round her shoulders and start us walking
