Sometimes there are quiet moments that catch us completely off-guard- that first "zing" between yourself and your love- whether it's a new relationship just beginning, or even one that has stood the test of time. It's those moments that make your entire body come alive and makes your heart bottom out in your tummy. It doesn't always have to be a big romantic gesture- sometimes it's the unexpected moments that leave the lasting impression.

“No, leave it. I like this song.” He brushed his hand across hers to nudge it away from the radio. Electricity surged up her arm.

When he began singing along with the man’s lines, Jasmine thought she might lose it. She felt the sting of tears behind her eyelids and turned away to stare out the window at the scenery blurring by.

Clasping her hands in her lap, she bit her lip to inflict pain instead of the romantic feelings that flooded to the forefront. The lyrics were still just as beautiful as she remember from her childhood, but the way he sang them with such a sincerity left her yearning for him to feel those things about her.

When his hand found hers across the console, she almost jumped out of her skin. She couldn’t look at him with the tears flowing down her cheeks, but she allowed him to take her left hand in his as they continued on their way.

“Jasmine?” Derrek’s voice tiptoed across her thoughts. Without thinking, she turned teary eyes toward him. “Is this song upsetting you?”

Jasmine took a deep shuddering breath before she spoke.

I still maintain- A party's not a party, till the gang's all here!
