He stayed at a distance. His friends (wisely) said I was too young. Only a sophomore in high school to his junior in college.
But he wooed me. Not with words mind you. With his chocolate brown eyes that crinkled at the edges every time he smiled. Woo.
I managed to squeak out a "hi" now and then, but otherwise kept my mouth shut as this was all new terrain for me.
Even before we started holding a multi-word conversation, he knew. He knew I was the one for him. He pointed this shy girl out to his mom one evening at church and said he was going to marry her someday.
Little did I know how the journey would blossom.
