“I wanted to cause you pain,” she said. “I also wanted to see if you could forgive me this. I came to the hotel yesterday for the same reason, to purposefully get on your nerves, and I succeeded. Silly and harsh, aren’t I?”
“I’ll forgive you for anything, including any of your stupidity and harshness,” he said.
“Really? You’re not joking?”
“No, I’m absolutely serious.”
“Are you sure you won’t regret it, forgiving me for everything?”

She stayed quiet for a bit. Then, keeping her eyes on Roy and slowly swinging her hips, she unbuttoned and unzipped her shorts, slipping out of them till she remained only in her panties. Then, coming up to him, she hugged his neck, clutched her fingers from behind, and, pulling herself up, wrapped her feet around his torso above his waist. Comfortably settling in this position, feeling his palms under her buttocks, she closed her eyes.
“I am yours, amigo. You can do whatever you want with me.”
