“Sam, you didn’t have to.”
He smiled, watching as you fastened the beautiful necklace around your neck.
“Happy birthday,” he replied, reaching to adjust where the pendant fell against your chest.
“This is too much,” you breathed, looking into his gorgeous hazel eyes and seeing something there that you hadn’t seen before.
“Yeah, well,” he shrugged bashfully. “Who else am I gonna splurge on? You’re my best fr-”
You cut him off, closing the distance and pressing a kiss to his lips.
You pulled back after a brief moment, trying to gauge his reaction.
A smile grew on his lips as he pulled you closer again, his hands on your hips.
“You, too?” he asked, regarding the emotions you were finally allowing yourself to feel.
“Yeah,” you agreed, leaning in and kissing your best friend once more.
