“With every cell in my body, every beat
of my heart, I knew I found my home.”
Our time together was a culmination of events that I couldn’t deny. I knew, if I didn’t love him before that moment, I fell over the edge into a bottomless ocean that was only for him. I knew I was never going back. So instead of speaking, I kissed him, hard. When my lips collided with his, I wrapped my arms around his neck, pulling him closer. And his arms tightened around me an instant later.
That was when I knew. With every cell in my body, every beat of my heart, I knew I found my home.
