last night we were snuggling in his bed, just touching, staring at each other across the pillow with smiles on our faces.
he gave a sweet kiss on the forehead and said "i feel so nerdy saying this, i don't know, i know it's early but i just - i just...." he got a bit flustered.
"i think i love you."
he laughed at himself a little bit, waiting for my reaction. "don't laugh about that," i said. "i love you too."
later that night i fell asleep in his bed. he tucked me in under all of his blankets and gave me a kiss.
"let me know if you need anything. i'll get for you. because i love you - very much."
this is the start of something wonderful.
