They stood wrapped around each other in the muted darkness of the living room, swaying slowly to the soft music. Slowly, Jess reached into her pocket, pulling out the small, velvet box she had been carrying with her for weeks.

The music ended. Dana pulled back and gazed into the sparkling grey eyes of her lover before taking her face in both of her hands and kissing her. Their lips parted only when oxygen deprivation became a problem.

“What is it, Jess?”

The redhead looked at her lover in wonder. “Are you sure about this?”

Jess nodded. “Yes, I am.”

Dana slipped her hand into her jeans pocket and pulled her keys out. She took the brass key from the velvet box and slid it onto her keychain.

“So, is that a yes?”

Dana smiled. “Yes, I’ll move in with you.” She kissed her. “Now let’s go to bed.”
