"I love you." He said.
I froze. I looked into his eyes asking if it was true, searching for a clue that it might be some crazy joke. But I didn't see any spark of mischief.
All I saw was his brown eyes boring into mine and I drowned.
I drowned, gasping for air that was momentarily absent when my heart skipped a beat.
I wanted to tell him that he is my universe. He is the anchor that keeps me grounded when I wanted to flee from the world's evils. He is the only sane thing in my world full of insanity.
Most of all, I wanted to tell him that I love him, too.
I tried to speak, put thoughts into words. But my thoughts was a mixture of jumbled words racing their way out of my throat. I choked.
"Thank you," was all I said.
