She loved cuddles, especially when she got to be the smaller spoon. And right now, the way her boyfriend’s arms consumed her, made her feel so secure. The warmth in his embrace brought a dreamy smile to her face.
“Wait a minute!” She opened her eyes only to realize she’d been single for four years.
She turned her head slowly.
The light seeping in through the window revealed a silhouette bearing no semblance to the human form. It lay next to her while holding her in a tight grasp.
“Ah, what the hell!” she sighed; then hugged it back tightly and murmured, “Good Night.”
It awkwardly whispered back, “Umm… I’m not looking for anything serious.”
