We’d played a few times before but it’d always been…well, playful. Nothing serious. A little release for me, a little fun for you.
But there was that one time when our eyes locked and I saw potential.
But it’s just potential.
Potential scares me. Let’s never go there, I say.
You agree. We don’t go there.
Where else is there but there?
Remember the first time I got up the nerve to ask you instead of waiting for you to come after me?
That’s when things went kinetic.
