A thousand ways to smile
“There’s a satisfied relief that spreads across his face when we see each other again after some time apart. It’s right there, barely hiding under the smile scattered all over his face. The smile is conscious, he knows he’s making it even if he’s not controlling it. But that other look, the one lurking ever so quietly behind the big smile, the one that tells me how happy he actually is to see me is better. He doesn’t know that look exists and I’m not about to tell him.”
