and V opens up, a little
I wrote V, to tell him how I feel without that magical L word.
He wrote back, and it was so sweet I cried. He admitted to being mistrusting and having a hard emotional shell and that he wanted to open up to me and love me.
He asked that I not keep my feelings from him, so between now and Friday, I will figure out how to tell him exactly how I feel without pushing him or pressuring him.
