Summary: This is how it started. This is why we're here.

It all started with a kiss from the other side of the room.
He must've seen me looking. I don't know how he could miss me looking. To me, it felt like there was nobody else in that room. We were the only two there – everything else was just a blur of colour, a murmur of words I couldn't pick out.
I was staring, I'm sure. My eyes were burning with the need to blink. I kept them open.
He set down his drink on the table, turned away from the woman he was talking to. Later, I would find out that she was his sister. She was his best friend too. They told each

I didn't drop my gaze when he looked back at me. I didn't turn away, pretend I hadn't been looking. I blinked, but I never looked away.
He stared back for a moment, but then he lifted a hand to his mouth. He must've have pressed his lips to his fingers. Then, he held his hand out and blew.
I caught it and he smiled.
That's how it started. That's why we're here today.
