It was her laugh that caught his attention. Brazen, unbridled, and unashamed. It was the sound of joy in its purest form - so raw and unencumbered. His eyes fell upon her as she sat across the room, floating in the serene lightness of that day - celebrating life in that one fleeting moment.
She claims she didn't notice him at all. Not at all. But I suspect she did. I suspect their eyes met from across the room. I suspect she loved him from the beginning. I suspect she fell for him instantly - in his earnestness, in his devotion, in his terrifying, vulnerable love for her.
