Then he stared jealously at Salem and me as we were dancing. (Didn't imagine this, really! Eleanor noticed it too.)
But the best part (and sort of a yay! for me) came as I was leaving. He was outside cleaning up the chairs and whatnot, and I decided to give him a rose (I'd gotten it earlier). He smiled really sweetly and thanked me. I turned to go, and he called me back, saying "these usually come with a kiss". And he gave me a kiss on the cheek! Awwwww.
So now I really can't stop smiling. Yay!
I know, I'm pathetic. And I'm using way too many exclamation marks.
