He sighed and then there was silence for a moment. Neither of them knew what to say. He absentmindedly kicked the bed’s foot board while she fidgeted with the sheets.

She grinned and leaned closer, kissing his nose. “I love you.”

He smiled and kissed her back. “I love you too.” He paused for a moment, then placed one hand on her flat stomach. “And I love you, too.”
