I collapsed crying shortly after we left the gate. He held me. I sobbed into his jacket, bright and new. I felt so awful, as if the world was going to end. He saved me, he saved the world. We held each other as I choked down my last sobs. The we walked, we walked aimlessly, pointlessly in the nearest direction. We held each other, my arm around his shoulders, his around my waist. We released each other only to grab hands, his grip firm on my weak and trembling hand. We stopped and set down our packages, then, linking elbows went to our sanctuary, the coffee shop. I felt such a strong surge of love. He was here, here with me, here for me. Thank you.
