I love reading with the girl. Sitting across from each other at a café table, each of us reading diligently our own materials, is my favorite place in the world. The loveliness and intelligence of her presence is far more warming than that of a steaming hot cocoa or chai. When I drink in her scent, it is far more exhilarating than a shot of espresso. When our fingers touch, more calming than chamomile. When our eyes meet, I want the café never to close so that I may read in her company to no end.
