He said, "I love you." Just as we were hanging up the phone.
And I hung up.
And then I called him back.
"Did you just say you loved me?"
Laughter. "Yes, I did. And it just flowed out and I was just right now looking for my phone to call you back and tell you not to be scared cuz I said that."
"Why would I be afraid?" I ask.
"I don't know. I didn't know how you would react to me saying it."
"Well, it doesn't scare me," I offer.
"Well, there you have it then," he says. "I said it first."
