I was on the subway going home today when a pretty teenage girl sat down next to me. Then a boy sat down in the seat adjacent her and for a time they had their knees interlocked and pushed their foreheads together frowning at one another.
He got up at Union. Backing toward the door never taking his eyes off her, stumbling, spinning around the door as it opened, he then made a heart shape with his hands, huge grin on his face. I couldn’t see her reaction entirely but she bashed both her fists together to make the same shape twice.
The train pulled away and immediately she was texting him.
