"I love you," he whispered;
and the words diffused through the air between them like fresh tea in warm water, filling the entire room with color.
she never thought that anyone could love her. she was speechless. happy. for the first in a long time. still confused and insecure she asked, "why?"
he replied with a kiss. knowing that it was the chaos of this puzzling world that drove him to her, his missing peace.
