His pronunciation was fine, it was his English accent messing it up. She knew back home comments and grumbling would be made about the ‘English’ man butchering their beautiful language. But there would also be respect for his attempt and effort to learn. Rand tipped her head back to look up at him. A soft thump was heard as she dropped the pencil and it fell on the bed behind him. “Write it down? How would I do that? I have nothing to write with.”
The pad of paper had also made its way to the floor during the course of their hug. Roman gave a little shrug. “It’ll have to wait a little longer, then.” It didn’t sound like he cared much just then. He was looking down at her, meeting her eyes with his. His look was one of adoration, and well, like he wanted to kiss her again.
He shrugged and with the way she was leaned against him it made her grip his shoulders. Though with his arms around her she wasn’t moving. Rand could think of another word to teach him, but she couldn’t quite bring herself to say it. Not with him looking at her like that, like he was going to kiss her. She blushed just a little bit more, like she knew what he was thinking.
Her face turned a bit deeper of a shade of pink and Roman knew she knew what he was thinking. Rand always seemed to turn that colour when the idea of kissing came up, and he liked it that way. His arms still tightly around her, he leaned in for the kiss, lowering his head to her.
Rand stretched up just a bit as Roman leaned in, her stomach felt like she had a swarm of butterflies had just hatched. Then he kissed her, ad the butterflies disappeared, replaced by warmth, and she kind of forgot where she was. She liked how he hugged her tighter when he kissed her. She kind of forgot how time worked too.
But then when he stopped kissing her she felt breathless and she had to think to try and remember what they were talking about. And that left a slightly bemused grin on her face.
