Mona Lisa smiles, Jessica grins

Jessica’s grin, while being more wide than sublime, is still quite enigmatic, as it won’t let on by what it is provoked.
Somebody may be talking about the latest epidemic or a death in the family – Jessica puts on her distracted grin.

Today I find her on her bed – naked in a jumble of clothes.
No trace of that patented grin, just something like worry.
“What’s wrong, dear?”
“Wrong? Oh! – Don’t know what to wear!”
“I like you this way.”
“Which way? – Oh, that way!”

A slight blush, and the patented grin is back…

Intended as a light summery scene with ingredients from 3WW (jumble, naked, grin).
