A Valentine's Day story

Her room is small and slightly too warm. He isn't there much; she likes seeing his bag in the corner and hearing his voice fill the space.
He says to her, "Are you sure its alright that we stay in?"
"Everyone out there is looking for what we have in here."
They sit on the bed and lean against the wall, it feels cool in the too-warm room. Her legs are draped over his, their hands lightly touching. Above them there are glowing fairy lights and the television glows. When he's paying close attention to the movie, she peeks over at his face. Sometimes she reaches out to touch it with her fingertips.
At the end of the movie she is sitting on his lap.
"I have to tell you something," he says. "I love you."
This is the first time of many he will say it. She buries her face in his shoulder and her heart feels like it might explode.
Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day.
