“I’m going out with Ash tonight.”
Karen took a bite out of her toast and looked over the paper. The kids were still in bed from the night before.
“I thought we were going to... You know?”
She turned the page.
“We could do it right now... The kids are still in bed.”
She laughed bitterly and shook her head.
“Nope. Toast makes me sleepy.”
“You don’t have to do any- Wait, what the fuck? Who the fuck gets tired after eating toast?”
She laughed and smiled at him, and kissed his nose.
“I thought you didn’t love me anymore, honey.”
He smiled softly, and she pursed her lips.
“Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.”
“But you find me sexy all the time, right?”
He kissed her lips, and she smiled beneath them.
“I think I just lost all my sleepiness, hun.”
