When they collided it was with such a force and they collapsed into each other. The smell of her hair captured the curiosity of his nose, though it was a familiar scent. The warmth of his body overtook hers like a wave crashing on the beach. It seemed like all time passed in that moment and as they walked back into the house arm in arm, she took his calloused hand in hers and pressed the note to his palm. He wrapped his fingers through hers and held on tight as they climbed the steps home...
