Very Short Stories: "Precious"

A black and white image of a pretty lady laying face up asleep on a bed. A male hand reaches in and begins to caress her face, but she does not move.
My precious...

"You're so precious!", she joked playfully.

He turned away so she didn't see him blush, and shuffled nervously in his seat.

"No," he smiled, turning toward her and reaching out to touch her cheek, "you are."

His icy touch spread through her body. She tried to scream, but her face had already turned to gold.
