By the Numbers

1. she accepted the offer to come over to my house
2. we sat on the couch together
3. I showed her some of my early writing efforts
4. it was already hot and steamy
5. knees touched
6. she leaned her head on mine
7. my heart rate quickened
8. I inhaled more
than I could possible exhale
9. we rubbed out lips together
10. I learned the secret to how hers were shaped
11. pulled back and laughed
12. I swear she glowed a little
13. her age at the time
14. how old I was
