Mason was slowly learning to cope with his ma's death. Talking about her seemed to help him the most, I think. The most vivid memory I have during this time was his three-thirty phone call. In the morning.

In some ways he reminded me of a little boy, just being separated from his mom for the first time. Of course I couldn't fault him for it. If I had known my mom, I'm sure I would've never wanted to let her go.

Mason was fortunate. He had memories of his mom. Good memories. I wish I could've known her.

I called Mason as I was walking home from work on Monday. "Hi, Mason. How are you?"

"You're smiling."

"What?" I asked, laughing a little. He is always so random.

"I can tell by your voice. You're smiling, Liv."

I laughed out loud now. "Anyhow, are you coming over to Lydia's for dinner tonight?"

"Livy, I've been at your guys house for dinner every night."

"So?"

"So tonight, I called Lydia I couldn't come."

There was a slight pause as I processed what he was telling me. Or rather, what I thought he was telling me. "Okay. Well, I guess I will see you tomorrow night then? I mean that is if-"

"Liv."

"What?"

"I cancelled dinner with Lydia. I didn't cancel it with you."

"I'd don't understand. Lydia will still be expecting me."

"Actually she won't be. I took the liberty of canceling for you too."

I pushed through the door of my apartment building and headed for the stairs. "Mason, I think you're getting kinda over bearing in your old age."

"You don't like it then?"

I came to a sudden stop. I was at the top of the stairs. Mason was standing in front of my door. Roses in one hand, his cell phone in the other.

"Surprise."

"What are you doing?" I finally found my thoughts and they were completely confused. Why would Mason cancel dinner at Lydia's just to show up at my place. "Mason, are you nuts?"

"I cannot answer that without giving you some corny line, so I'm gonna ignore that question."

"How about answering the first question then?" I asked as I came to stand directly in front of him. Jeans, plaid shirt. His hair slightly damp. And did he smell good. Not like, the city, just took a bath in cologne smell. Mason had the fresh out of the shower, clean smell. I loved it. And then I kicked myself for loving it. You cannot be attracted to his smell, that's stupid

Even so, I couldn't stop wondering about his purpose.

"So while we wait, why don't you tell me why we're here. What is it that you want?"

"Uhh, why don't we discuss it after dinner."

"After dinner, why?"

"Livy, I don't want to ruin the night."

"How do you know you'll be ruining it, Mase?" He took a deep breath and slowly released it. "Just talk to me." I urged.

"I want to see you."

There was a pause. I didn't speak, waiting for him to continue. He didn't speak, apparently he was done.

"Umm... Okay. You can't see me?"

"Liv, I want to.. You know what? This was a dumb idea. Let's go home." Pushing back in his chair, he started to shrug his jacket on.

"Mason, sit down."

"Let's go."

"I'm still hungry."

"I don't want to ask you, Liv. It's just gonna embarrass you and me."

"Where's your confidence, Mason? Usually you're all set to conquer the world. What happened to that guy?"

Mason sighed as he sat back down.

Silence reigned for several minutes. I didn't say anything, sensing that he needed some time to gather himself. He would speak, it just had to be in his way. In his time.

"Liv?"

"Yeah?"

"Can I date you?"

Mason. Wants. To. Date. Me.

Me.

Wow.
