I Actually Love You

In a dream, we are at the beach after sunset. He reaches over to hug me, and I lean into him, pressing my face into his neck.

We hug for a long time. I breathe him in, and eventually my body relaxes. I pull away slightly and rest my cheek against his. I want to kiss him. I can tell that he wants to kiss me. I pull away further, and he touches his nose to mine, so tender, so vulnerable. Our mouths so close to touching.

We sit there in the dark for a long time, our foreheads pressed against each other. Breathing in. Breathing out.

“I really do love you, you know,” I say to him.

A second passes. Another second passes.

He breathes in.

“I actually love you too,” he says quietly.
