Seeing you standing there set me alight. My heart jumped ten feet out of my chest as I spotted you out of the corner of my eye.
Of course, I had been expecting you. I had dreamt about this moment, over and over. I had it planned. I knew you would come eventually. But still, my body betrayed me. The cheeks – I could feel them redden. They always betrayed me, as did my facial expressions. My heart began to beat faster, and my stomach…yes it churned. Nausea crept up on me, and I looked down at my feet, attempting to will all of my energy into what I was about to do, and to not stuff it up. Just breath. In…Out…In…Out. Now focus. It was now or never.
