When she got to me, we hugged in the driveway for a good, long time and I asked her if she’d take a walk with me. We walked maybe two blocks, in silence. Hands in my pockets, her looking down as we walked. We got to a little park bench and took a seat. And I wasted no time.
I told her I overreacted. That I couldn’t let something so amazing go. That I loved her and that we could both work on some things to make it better. And she wasted no time. She said she’d take me back.
And that was really a turning point for us. We became awesome. We were on fire. We didn’t take each other for granted anymore.
