“C’mon, don’t be scared. I’ve got you,” he says.
My heart hammers in my chest as we carefully make our way to the tip of the bow. Not just because of what we’re doing, but because of how close we’ll be.

Loving him, is.
My best friend.
He grins as he turns us both around, his hand around my waist.
“I like you, too, you know,” he whispers as I spread my arms.
His words send me flying.
