ENTRY: Flash Fiction July 16-27

"I feel safe with you, Mark." She snuggled closer.

"You are." He leaned down and lightly kissed the top of her head. He wanted this to go right. A drum beat in his chest.

“This is my house. Would you like to come in for a few minutes?” She placed the key in the lock.

A dog barked.
