Day 50 ~ A kiss

John, and Mary leaned in toward each other, and kissed. When they finally broke away, Mary smiled at John, and he smiled back.
Her smile faded. “How did this happen?”
He frowned. “What do you mean?”
“How… did you fall in love with me?” she asked finally.
He considered this carefully. Frankly, there wasn’t much to consider, because he knew exactly how.
Mary waited patiently for an answer.
John took a deep breath, and finally said, “I just started thinking about you… and I couldn’t stop.”
She furrowed her eyebrow. “What did you think about?”
“The way you smile, how you’re caring of others, how beautiful you are.”
“I’m not beautiful.” she protested.
“Why are you so blind to your beauty? Haven’t you ever looked in a mirror?” John asked.
“No” Mary huffed, “I’m not that vain.”
Right on cue, John pressed an ornate compact mirror in her palm. “I think it’s about time that you did.”
