Antonio pulled you closer in his sleep, nuzzling his face in your neck. You opened your eyes slightly and smiled, letting your fingers tangle in his hair. Morning light slid into the room through the window, bathing everything in a warm yellow glow. You watched little bits of dust float around in the air, drifting in and out of the soft beams of sunlight. Antonio moved his head up on to the pillow, opening his bright green eyes and gazing sleepily at you with a small smile.

“Stop, stop!” you said breathlessly, still laughing. Toni sat back, watching you regain your breath, tears leaking from the corners of your eyes from laughing so hard. Toni leaned back over, supporting himself on his arms.
“Te amo, (Name).”
“I love you too,” you said, still grinning. “I wonder if you're ticklish...”
