'And then she said,"

I asked her how she was doing.
She smiled at me and said, "fine, just fine. How about you?"
Oh, that smile.
I smiled back. "Yeah, umm, (that smile always took my breath away) I am doing ok, I guess."
And still she smiled at me.
We walked on a little ways. 

It was cool outside. The sky was that robin's egg blue and hosting a sun   showing off for all it was worth.
I couldn't imagine a nicer day to walk with her. "So , anything interesting going on?" I asked.
 ...And then she said.. "Well, I am falling in love with you."

Taken from a short story I wrote long ago.
