Manon got out her camera and asked Chloe and me to stand close together. I asked her to give us a countdown to when she planned to snap the picture, wanting to time my initial pose to one in which I give Chloe a big fat smooch on the cheek. But she was too quick for me.
Chloe recoiled quickly to try fending off my, her loving father’s, kiss attack. I brought my hands into play, holding Chloe steady in order to get in my kiss.
Meanwhile, Manon kept snapping pictures. Of the several she got, this one is my favorite.
