She felt exhausted from keeping up with her job, handling stress from bosses, unhealthy friendships and detached parents. She was at the verge of a breakdown when she finally saw him, her soul mate. With all the chaos dancing around her, he was all the calmness she needed to survive. In all the madness, she felt sane by his mere sight. She had tears in her eyes. He saw them and went towards her to let them sink. The expression on his face changed from nothingness to relief. Relief because of her sight. They ran to find each other in a tight embrace. She hugged him because she was drowning and he was her lifeguard. She hugged him because she was sad and he was her happiness. She hugged him just because. Their hugs weren't the formal sideways hugs. They were always bear hugs. Their bodies touching in the most sensual way and vanishing the sadness within. Her hands were wrapped around his head as he held her by her waist. They could hear each other's heart beats. They were fast at first and then slowed down because of each other's being. Their closed eyes held a promise for each other. Nothing in the world mattered at that moment. They were least bothered about where they were or what people thought because in that moment, they didn't care about anyone but each other. They felt their worries melting down replacing it with a whole different feeling of longing. This love could win over all the sorrows and miseries, past and future, evils and sin. She finally opened her eyes and said, "I'm worried about my life." To that he replied in the calmest and dreamy voice, "I'm here. Everything will be all right." In that moment, she felt like nothing bad could ever happen to them. This bond of love could outlast anything in the world. As they held each other, they felt like they belonged to each other and in that moment they felt forever.
