We first met in church.
We started talking and became friends fast.
Then our second meeting was under the worst conditions you can think of.
It was windy and raining
and I was stuck on the 495 with a flat tire and with no replacement.
At the time, I didn't have much guy friends
except now I had Luke.
We had just become friends and didn't want to ask for his help but it was getting dark
and wanted to get the hell out of there.
With a shaking hand, I called him
Within 10 minutes, he parked behind me.
We exchanged some words and he was about to start on my tire.
When the winds got stronger and lightning appeared.
We both ran to the car, soaked and cold.
He gave me his jacket, he had in his car.
That night, we started to get to know each other more.
We had more things in common than we imagined.
We continued looking at the rain but our eyes would meet once in a while.
Our hands met while trying to put the heat on.
Our eyes meet again, he leaned in...
That night I felt warm and safe, right next to him.
