Encounters

by marmaladescreams

I got a hug today. A nice, big, tight squeeze of a hug. Standing there, embraced by this other human-being, I was hit by surprised wonder… And then joy. Friendly, fancy kisses continued our encounter, a compliment flew through the air, and an agreement was made. The mood turned casual and we felt the earth beneath our feet.
But as we hugged during those happy seconds, as we were cheek to cheek… I could feel it. I had a friend. Someone who was happy to see my face on the other side of the elevator doors.
