Fraulein Schneider smiled shyly up at Herr Shultz. He smiled into her palm. Slowly, Herr Schultz released her hand and instead placed his hand tenderly upon her waist and drew her to him. He then leaned his forehead against hers. They both looked deeply into each other's eyes.

"Fraulein Schneider…" he whispered, she closed her eyes and listened to his voice. "You must understand, it is… difficult for me to express exactly what I feel for you," Fraulein Schneider tilted her head back and kissed him once more, a bit stronger than the first time, but still very tentatively, and pulled away again almost as quickly.

"Herr Schultz, if you cannot tell me… show me?" With that her eyes flashed open, as is she were surprised by her own daring. Herr Schultz had dreamed of her saying such a thing to him, though he had never hoped she would really say it.

Fraulein Schneider watched him expectedly, but he seemed frozen, unsure what to do, and afraid to take thongs too far. She smiled softly, reassuringly.

"Come," she said simply, taking his hand and leading him towards the next room. As she reached the door to the bedroom she felt his hand tighten and pull against her. She turned to face him once more. He looked unsure.

"Fraulein Schneider," he began, "You- you are sure about this? I do not wish to rush you into anything,"

She chuckled, "Herr Schultz, at my age, there is no such thing as 'rushing into' anything." He smiled and placed his other hand over their clasped hands.

"If you are sure…"

Fraulein Schneider stepped forward and kissed him, much more passionately then before, and wrapped an arm around him. He squeezed her hand with both of his.

"I'm very sure Herr Schultz," she whispered, brushing her lips against his.
