Part IV: "I don't know how it gets better than this"

What a crazy day it has been! She woke up early so she could work 7.5 hours with a break in the middle for her friend's baby shower and now it's pouring rain, scotching her plans to wear her new little black dress AND he has all of a sudden texted asking if he could come over early. She hurriedly grabs a plaid shirt and jeans, figuring at least she'll be comfortable even if she doesn't get to dress up. When she steps outside to greet him, he wraps his arms around her and squeezes her so tight. It momentarily catches her off guard before she relaxes into his warmth.

On the drive to the restaurant, he again surprises her by talking about how he wants kids after she describes the baby shower. He will be a fun dad, he pronounces while she knows she'll be the responsible person who tries to schedule and turn everything into a routine-it would be very complementary. He also mentions her helping him look for a new apartment when his lease is finally up in the summer. These topics seem somewhat serious to her but if he wants to lead the way, she'll gladly follow him.

Throughout dinner, she keeps staring at him but then blushing when he returns the stare. He needs to look elsewhere and let her gaze in peace, she thinks! But they also keep talking about everything under the sun it seems. She has worried about their ability to converse (what doesn't she worry about?) but that was unnecessary it seems as the conversation freely rolls along.

Afterward they wander through some shops enjoying the fact that it is no longer raining and that they are together. They keep talking and talking and talking as it gets later and later and later.

She begins to flag from her busy day and he has to return her home but not before he kisses and kisses and kisses her. She tries to pull away knowing he has a drive home but she doesn't want to go just yet. Finally she does pull away already waiting for the next time they'll see each other.
