Still, I get butterflies every time I see you. Still, your smile makes me melt on the inside. Still, laying underneath you makes me feel like I’m in the safest place on earth.
You reminded me that we met on OUR birthday night at Bayou. What are the chances that we met at the same place six months later? I remember whispering to my friends that you were the most gorgeous creation I’d ever laid eyes on.
Later that night, before we exchanged numbers, I leaned into your ear, “I’ve been watching you all night.” I managed to say it through my smile. “I know. I saw you!” You replied with the most magnificent smirk on your face. I knew then I was getting myself into some trouble – good trouble.
And here we are, four and a half months later. Still enjoying one another’s company. Still, no title; just going with the flow. Still, allowing a natural bond to build.
Is this was Afrodite intended? Did she foresee this? I want to ask her about the future… But I think I’ll be patient and see for myself. I heard there’s virtue in patience.
Remember when we laid in bed for two days straight when our city flooded. That was was the moment I knew… That was the moment I knew that you were special to me. That was the moment I knew you’d always be a part of me, in some shape or form.
Oh, to be struck by Afrodite’s power. If everyone could only be so lucky.
