It happens quickly; the stereotypical whirlwind, this romance.
They are dreaming big and living small; far richer in time than money, which they’ll realize later is just downright wealthy.
They hold hands in the dark, fingers intertwined and talk about forever, which stretches far and away, the ludicrously distant future.
Their right now is filled with “one days,” and sometimes they forget to just enjoy the moment as it passes. But they’re learning each other’s ways and ever-shifting and changing. They’re making room for each other and rubbing off some rough edges. There’s beauty in the preparation to join one life with another.
He is strong and steadfast and she is flighty and fresh and together they move forward, coaxing the best out of each other.
