Shaky hands clasped together in the beginning of Spring. It’s not the first time I held his hand, but it was the first time that it was for real. It all happened so fast. Both of us, freshly out of relationships. But, was it wrong if I had known him for years? We probably should have stopped. Instead, we trusted our gut and expressed how we felt with no barriers. Almost three years of dancing salsa in the streets, tickle fights, and many firsts, the answer is obvious now: we were never wrong for each other.
