“You know I love you, right?”
A million things were running through her mind.
Did she look alright? Where her eyebrows filled out correctly? Did she smell good?
For a brief second she was thinking about the first time they drove around for hours. It was obvious that they loved each others company and she adored the sound of his voice. She had been looking for him for the longest but it wasn’t until she stopped looking that she found him, or maybe he was the one who found her.
They laughed together wholeheartedly as children do when entertained. As the days became weeks she realized that the time they spent together inspired her and as he began to share his thoughts she fell in love with him.
Although she knew that their saga was not ideal, to her it was absolutely perfect and it sounded beautiful to hear him speak those words.
She could do nothing but look him deep in his eyes and as he kissed her she uttered the most truthful words she knew.
”I love you too.”
