5 minutes: He holds her hand on the cafe table

It wasn't the first time. It also wasn't the hundredth.

She didn't react. There were other things on her mind, things he was just learning about.

He wasn't in her life yet. Just on the outskirts. If he were, they would not have been in the cafe. She would have already called him.

But this was still new enough it had to be done in person. In a controlled environment.
