[Theo chuckles at that.]
Believe it or not but that actually makes sense to me.
[Jasmine deepens their kiss and he can’t help but to pull her closer, one hand tangling into her hair while he tries to also lean into her hand.]
Good, good. [He doesn’t want to ask. Really he doesn’t. But there’s a mild case of curiosity brewing.] Why, exactly, did you say hello like that? Not that I mind. I just want to know how to keep it in my life. [Right before he’s kissing her all over again.]
I don’t know. I’m just—Who knows.
[ Who knows! She deepens the kiss, slightly, pressing her palm to his cheek. ]
"That’s the best way to say hello. The absolute best. Really. Don’t ever stop."
[ She grins, pulling him a little closer. ]
I’ll do my best.
There could be. [Settling back into bed and doing his best to hold back a yawn.] Once upon a time there was a prince. He was next in line to the crown and felt the weight of the kingdom upon his shoulders. Unsure of his ability to rule as his father had before him he sought council with a soothsayer.
Soothsayers aren’t even real.
[ 'Tell me a story with dragons but don't include something as impossible and ridiculous as an individual able to predict the future', a book by Jasmine Pond. ]
Okay, sorry, continue.
I’m sorry. [No he’s not.] A real story, huh? [Slinging an arm around her.] What about a princess that saves a prince?
As long as there are dragons involved, I’m sold.
Once upon a time there was a girl who travelled through time. She was a demanding, fiery woman who would often times wake her boyfriend from a dead sleep to tell stories? [An attempt was made.]
That was awful. Non-fiction has never really appealed to me.
