Connor notices me watching him and turns his head toward me. We’re only a few feet from each other and I stretch out my hand for his. He keeps one hand held tightly around Noelle as he reaches out for me with the other. His warm palm covers mine.
“I love you,” I say quietly.
He smiles. “We love you too.”
