"No you don't, don't say things you don't mean" Gillian said turning away from him.
"When do I say things I don't mean?"
"All the time"
Cal laughed "yeah I suppose I do pet, but will you just look at me, please?" he said almost pleading, "I love you, alright"
The truth was written all over his face, she had to sit down.

"You alright?"
"You tell me love me after how many years of working together and then wonder if I'm alright?"
"What do you want me to say Cal?"
"Don't really know"

Gillians mind was racing, Cal obviously meant what he said. But why now? Cal was a master at hiding his feelings from many people, but not her. You didnt work at The Lightman Group for as long as she did without knowing about micro expresions.

Cal was starting to get worried; Gillian hadn't said anything for what felt like an eternity. Then slowly she began to smile, then giggle and then full out laugh.

"What's so funny Foster?" Cal asked a little offended that she would laugh at him.
"I've wondered what it would feel like to have you say those words to me."
"Well in that case pet, I'm sorry I kept you waiting"
"Don't be, I was certain you ever would"
"Oh? Care to explain"
"Not really" Gill said but after seeing the curiosity on Cals face she continued "I thought perhaps you might like me, but there was all these other woman"
"Hey there wasn't that many"
"Yes there was, it seemed every young attractive woman was turning your head and you didn't give me a second look"
al took Gills hand and pulled her out of her chair and into a warm embrace, "I'm sorry."

"What for?"
"I can be a real jackass sometimes"
"I know"
"Anyway, I'm sorry for all the times I hurt you and for taking so long"
Gil placed a quick kiss on his cheek "thank you"
"for what?"
"For apologizing, and for saying you loved me"

Cal put his hand on her cheek and looked at her in the eyes "were do we go from here?"

"Where ever you want"
"Right then" he quickly leaned forward and placed a kiss on her lips "How about here?"

"That's a good start" Gillian said smilling
