My phone chimed. Text.

Where are u?

"I'm all checked in."

What room?

"314, okay? Stop worrying! See you tomorrow."

I took a shower to wash the road trip grime from me. 12 hours of driving was exhausting. No longer smelling like french fries, I flopped on the hotel bed to flip through the channels. There was a knock on my door.

"Who is it? I didn't order room service."

"Sosh, let me in!"

I gasped. "Kyle?! What are you DOING here?"

After I slid the chain lock back, he swept me into a huge bear hug. It brought tears to my eyes.

"Oh don't cry."

We sat and talked for a couple hours, me fighting sleep. I got up to use the restroom and when I opened the door, he was standing in his shorts, bare-chested. I flushed pink.

"Truth or Dare," he grinned.


"Come on!"

"I hate this game! I don't trust people."

"Even me?"

"Especially you!" I giggled. "No idea what you are thinking."

"Sure you do! You read my mind all the time."

I paused. "If you snore, I will hit you."

"Exactly! See?"

Interesting. While my prompt used the word dare to challenge people into writing, I hadn't meant for it to be taken so literally but I am pleasantly amused that it happened. I think this was fun. There's a kind of sexiness to it (at least for me) and a sense of humor.
