They lounged on opposite ends of the couch reading books of opposing viewpoints. Her feet rested in his lap as his absentmindedly massaged her calf.

“It’s fluff of happiness,” he said, handing it to her.

“What?” She asked incredulously, with a shake of her head.

“Better than lint of melancholy.”

“More like dross of insanity.”

He laughed, and she pocketed her treasure.
