We were walking on damp grass with 6–7 inches gap between us. The ambience smelled of petrichor mixed with nervousness and blushing which are the very first feelings in a new giggling relationship.
I was really nervous as it was my first romantic walk with someone that too with a really tall man. I hesitated for even looking into his eyes but more because it gave strain to my neck. As we were walking and having small chats, a romantic Hollywood movie was going on in my head imagining him just grabbing and kissing me, our very first kiss.
A bold voice interrupted my movie and asked ‘can I keep my hand on your shoulder while we walk?’. Without being able to think I responded ‘yes’. I was rushed with feelings like happiness, security, but mainly a proud partner.
Him taking my permission, moped out a slight layer of the misbehaves happened with me all my life by different people and bounded my bond with him.
It’s been 5 years to that incident and we are still together, enjoying and surviving our 4 years long and continued distance relationship.
