Face to Face



Face to face at last

Perpetual gaze is held

No words are spoken

Hands reaching out with purpose

You grab the last cookie first 



~Smiles~

    wow killer last line I can smell the cookies!remember punctuation and capitalization not used in japanese forms [they count the sounds and they give a different sound to indicate surprise which would add to the sound count, so, they don't use punctuation]
