Happy 4th of July!

To everyone in American or who celebrates 4th of July, hope it's a great one. To everyone else, happy Monday

And as a 4th of July surprise (and mainly because I'm a giant tease). Here is 'something' that you will learn more about tomorrow. 

           He ran a hand through his hair and rocked back on heels.  Awkward silence stretched out, and I suddenly became painfully aware of how different I was from two years ago. I’d used to always have something witty and flirty to say. Now I just stared up at him like an idiot. A fierce blush stole over my cheeks, spreading down my neck.
            “I’ve seen you around here a couple of times,” he tried again, staring at the book I held.  “‘I had come face to face with someone whose mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so, it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself.’
            I stared. “What?”
            His lopsided grin spread into a full one, and it felt like someone had socked me in the chest. “It’s a quote from Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray? It’s one of my favorite books.”
            Hot and smart. And apparently he was a real life boy.
