Everything About You
by Sloan Parker
I stopped with the jigsaw puzzle piece held in mid-air and stared back at Joe. I couldn’t have heard him correctly.
He was on the couch across the room from me, leaning forward with his elbows propped on those strong, muscular thighs. He had a crooked smirk on his face, that innocent, yet wicked expression usually reserved for the moment right before he was about to attack my dick with his lips. I could almost see a halo over his head and a red pitchfork in his hand. Maybe I had heard him correctly after all.
He added, “I think that piece is part of his beak.”
He pointed at the puzzle piece in my hand.
“Oh.” I inserted the three-sided section into the last empty space that made up the red-winged blackbird’s beak.
Now that Joe had asked the question, and the words were hanging there between us, I felt like the biggest dork with the folding table before me covered in puzzle pieces sorted by shape and color. For weeks now I’d been putting together the puzzles my grandma had left behind when she’d passed away. I met his gaze again and studied him.
“What?” he asked.
“I’ve been watching you put together these bird and rabbit puzzles since the funeral, and I realized something tonight.”
“What?” That I’m the biggest dork on the planet who can’t figure out how to say good-bye to his grandma?
“I love everything about you, and I want to marry you.”
