You crouched by the fire, it’s warm light and soft heat making you smile.
“Want to make s’mores?”
Jaehyun crouched beside
you, warming his hands as he gazed into the inviting fire.
Smiling in response you gave a small nod.
You held the skewer over
the fire, watching the bloated marshmallow tan. You glanced at Jaehyun as he
broke the chocolate bar into separate pieces. His soft hair ruffled in the
wind, his dimple showing as his lips spread into a thin line in concentration.
A low whine escaped you as your marshmallow caught ablaze. Withdrawing it from the fire, you frantically blew on it, Jaehyun coming to your aid instantly.
He offered a gram cracker, pulling the oozing marshmallow from the skewer with another.
His deep chuckle sounded through the night, his warm brown eyes mirroring the molten chocolate that oozed onto your finger.
Gently, he grasped your
hand, guiding it to his lips.
His warm lips wrapped around your finger, his soft gaze holding you captive. You dropped the s’more your other hand held, your lips parting in astonishment. He drew back, mumbling a complaint as he watched ants crawl over the forlorn sandwich.
Shouts echoed through the forest as the eccentric troop emerged, strobing their flashlights obnoxiously.
Blankets were laid atop
the damp grass, pillows carelessly thrown.
Murmurs quieted, the sounds of nature taking over the silence. All eyes focused on the stars above, their brilliant lights twinkling in the dark abyss.
