the sun was setting in the distance. clouds freckled the sky. the yellow leaves of the gargantuan tree rustled with the chilling wind.
i stared for a few minutes at the swaying tree with its leaves of bright yellow, when i heard a voice.
“hey,” it said. i slowly lifted my head in the direction of the familiar voice. the first thing i saw was an orange hoodie.
it was him.
“you came,” he continued. i looked up at him. our eyes met. i felt like i sank a million miles into those eyes.
“hey,” i replied. i hoped that all the thoughts racing in my mind were not transparent upon my face & i wished that all the butterflies in my stomach would settle just slightly.
