Fear danced in the centre of his eyes every time I got too close to him. I stretched out my hand and rested it on his face.

The moment our skin touched it was like the world had disappeared and our eyes never left each other.

why?” I asked “why are you afraid of loving me?”

“I don’t fear loving you” he said

And continued…

“I fear losing you, because already, I have fallen in love with you”
