I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch & wrap my arms around her & sleep … Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring & she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk - thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.
