Chapter 37

When she came out, my jaw nearly dropped. I would’ve also dropped dead but I knew I had to stay alive for her.

I have never seen her like this, so radiantly beautiful, and…elegant. She was wearing a simple short sleeved white summer dress, that flowed and moved like waves. It floated at a perfect height just below her knees. Her short neck length hair neatly brushed, different from the usual playful and slightly scruffy hair. Her delicate facial features shone in the moonlight.

I couldn’t believe it was her. She looked like an angel from heaven.

But she was the girl I loved.

I realized I was smiling. With a newfound shyness, I admitted softly, “You’re stunning tonight.”

She seemed just as shy and tipped her head, “Thanks.”

Her mom was at the door. “Have fun.” She smiled at me. “Take care of her.”

I promised her I would.

As she came to my side, our hands automatically entwined, now an instinctive motion. It seemed like the spaces between our fingers were designed for one another.

Holding hands like newly weds, we headed for dinner.
