I Licked My Lips And Tried To Appear Coy

Hooray, Sofia's just popped over and for once no one is around in the back garden to disturb me.

Daddy is out the front washing his car and River is absorbed watching him and barking at passing dogs while my other Daddy is banging on about something called a TIFF agreement that could potential be, according to his ranting, the end of any control the country has over it's own affairs. He really is worked up and I know when he's like that it's best to keep a low profile in case he tries to get you involved.

Anyway the sun was still out, it's been a beautiful warm day the hottest of the year so far, so I decided to have a little wander around the garden, see how Nadia was enjoying the heat when I spotted Sofia stretching out a sleep on the sunshine shed.

I ran over to her to say hi, she smiled back;

"Lovely day isn't it?"

I grinned back.

"It is indeed," I licked my lips and tried to appear coy, "almost as lovely as you."

I suddenly felt very self-conscious and looked down, hoping I hadn't come across too cheesy or forward. The silence felt like an age and I knew I couldn't continue looking at the floor, that would be rude so eventually, probably about 10 seconds later, I looked back up to see Sofia smiled back at me.

"Not too bad yourself." She mouthed back before giggling and jumping back onto the sunshine shed and over into one of the gardens on the other side.
