Pet Name

by Ari Collins

"Darling Pie," he began, startling himself.

"Awwwwwwwwww," she said, her voice sinking down, then, at the end, soaring up, covering whole octaves of cute. "What a wonderful pet name!"

She kissed him, and then they kissed, hard, warm, and bubbly.

He'd been ambushed by thought-dead habit. He hadn't meant to call her that name.
