"Sorry," In a trembling voice Hannah called out to the server "This coffee has peppermint, I wanted a.."


"Think that's mine," A voice said from behind her. That same voice reached out and pressed her lips were Hannah had taking a sip from the cup. "Don't know which is sweater, the peppermint or your lips,"

" Don't just stand there, you got this,"


" I have got this," Hannah reply. With a smile she turn to face the strawberry blonde and made eye contact. With pure harmony and sink, she made towards the girl.
