“You look pretty today.” Cato told her. Even though she hadn’t dressed up at all and her hair wasn’t brushed, he thought she looked like an angel. Clove blushed, a rare occurrence, and shook her head. She smiled at him with an embarrassed smile, but her eyes shone with happiness. “No, really. You look wonderful.” He grinned at her shyness.
“Shut up…” She mumbled through her smile. Her head leaned against his chest to hide her flushed face and she punched him lightly in the stomach. He laughed, then wrapped his arms around her and held her against him.
“I’m serious, you look great.” He said after a few moments of silence. She smiled shyly and stood on her tip-toes to plant a thank you kiss on his cheek. This time, it was Cato who turned pink.
