From the moment he’d sent me “I really enjoyed today”, Will and I had begun talking with each other through texts on an almost daily basis. In the midst of liking that I was hearing from him, I was getting really scared. Scared that I would fall for him while he was just being polite. Scared that he was just like every other guy.
I was sitting at my desk when my phone started buzzing with a text from him wanting “a really big favor”. He needed someone to keep Katherine that coming up Saturday. Hang out with a two year old. That was definitely not a “big” favor in my opinion.
I would later learn that, while I didn’t consider babysitting to be a big deal, it was huge for him to be willing to trust me with her. I would also later learn that he was so very far from being just like every other guy. Katherine and I had a blast hanging out that day; it would be just the first of many Saturdays that she and I would spend together. Little did I know that it would be Katherine that would continue to put us in each other’s presence.
And I was really liking just being in his presence.
