Scarletta smiled her dazzling grin and kissed his cheek, removing the disc from her chest. She felt a twinge of sadness at the loss of the low 'thump', but it was swept away by the happiness at hearing Hyde's heartbeat in her ears. "Yes, in and out." she repeated, eyes glimmering brightly as she listened close. To her, the sound seemed lower than her own heartbeat, and at a different pace. The thought of combining the two beats into a song made her smile wider, and she locked away the tempo in her head.
As the car in front of them moved forward, she leaned her head on his shoulder, shutting her eyes so she could listen better. A contented sigh came from her lips, and she squeezed his hand in hers.
