Walking back to Terrence, after Severine called her out, Eliza could tell by the way he looked at her that she looked like the cat who had licked the cream. She did not totter, but felt like an astronaut in outer space trying to make sense of gravity. Her emotions swirled about her.Terrence stood up as she approached, and placed his hand on her hip as she sat next to him. The table was still filled with bottles of wine, and the delicious food that Gio had prepared. Gio joked he wanted Severine to eat for two.
Severine stood up, and pregnant, she looked more voluptuous than she had before. She adjusted her shades in her hair, and smiled,
“He just wants my breasts bigger!”
Eliza smiled at Severine, as Gio pulled her close to him.
Terrence placed his hand on her thigh, and Eliza looked down at his hand on her lap. Eliza placed her hand over, and into his.
Her hand remained in his, as they made love much later in Severine’s guest bedroom. They held hands, as if they made a human knot. After they made love, Eliza curled her body against his, held his hand tighter and kissed his shoulder blade.
“Sev–” she started, then realized that Terrence might not be awake.
“What?” he asked groggily.
She started to tell him how Severine had said that she could tell that she was in love with him.
“Sev looks lovely.”
“She is…she is…” Terrence said, and squeezed her hand. “She is in love and happy.”
Eliza knew that she was in love with Terrence, but it was still so precious to her that she could barely tell him.
Only show it with her body spread, and her eyes wide…
