ok i’ve had tinder for .5 seconds and i’m already sorry
"tell us the story again, grandma!" the children clamor. they cluster around my old rocking chair, their sweet childish faces bright with anticipation. "tell us the story of how you met grandpa!" i heave a sigh, but i cannot help the smile that curves my withered lips. "oh, you’ve heard that old story a hundred times," I tell them. "we want to hear it again!" they cry.
i close my eyes. i transport myself back years and years, to when i was only a girl and he — gone now, the only man I ever loved, the scent of him long faded from the lining of his old coat, though i wear it still to keep the cold out, to imagine his arms around me — he was only a boy. It’s as clear as if he were speaking right into my ear: I remember exactly what he said. When everything else is forgotten, those words will remain. The words that opened a door in my heart, a door I thought would remain forever locked.
And one day soon, when our eyes meet in heaven, I will finally say it back.
dating an identical twin scares me bc what if i get them confused
i read a book once where this girl was romantically involved with this guy who had a twin and they would punk her all the time and be like which one is your boyfriend you have to kiss the right one and then it turned out one of them was evil and trapped her in a dungeon with a bunch of rats or some shit
