He was telling me a story about a friend when he turned to me and said “I told him you are with me wherever I go...” and then hesitated. I thought he was making a romantic statement and it made me feel scared. My heart pounded and I felt ready to bolt. He smiled then and said “...and then I pulled one of your hairs off my jacket.”
He laughed when I exhaled in relief and that made me laugh too. I forgot how well he knows me. Some people feel like home and it’s a very nice feeling.
