“When I returned home yester evening and discovered the entry you had written in my journal, I felt my heart would leap out of my chest. I could scarcely allow myself believe you could feel that way about me. I picked this up first,” he said, closing his hand around the cross, “wondering why you had left it. When I read the end of your entry, I knew. I also knew if you had left this for me that you must feel the same, to leave something so precious to you as a gift for me.”
“I feel like I belong to you, Samuel, like I belong with you. I don’t know how to make this right though,” I said sadly.
“We shall figure it out, my Delaney. Somehow we shall figure it out together,” he said, smiling shyly.
“Together,” I smiled, closing my hand around his. “Samuel, I have to ask, how can you be so accepting of all this? And of what stands between us?”
“Because you made my heart feel things I had begun to think I would never feel, all before I even met you or read your words. To deny that this is real, to deny or question that it is happening or why it is happening would be to deny and question how I feel for you. I do not ever want you to think I am not certain of that, my Delaney,” he said firmly.
