PEOPLE LOSE THEIR WAY SOMETIMES. MOST OF THE time, they don’t even know until it’s too late and the damage is already done. Me, I never lost my way. Even on the run with Gina, I knew where I was going. I was with her. She was my path. She was my destiny. As long as we were together, the roads were set. It’s all that mattered.
When you’re with someone who makes you feel so good you ache during every moment you’re away from them, it’s impossible to truly get lost and stray from your path. She’s the only one I ever cared about from the exact moment me and Gina decided to make it happen between us.
Her beauty, her smile, her scent, her skin, the way my heart melted with every word she spoke; every time she touched me, even if it was just a slight nudge from her elbow or a quick touch of my hand, it was the greatest fucking thing ever. And, man, to think that some people may go their whole lives without experiencing that kind of love, romance, and intensity, it makes me truly sad. But at least I got it. I got everything from her, Gina King, the prettiest girl in the world. I was just sixteen and she was just seventeen, but my God, she became the pulse that gave me life. Nothing can ever fucking touch that. And nothing could ever be that damn good.
