SHORT STORY| No Words

Our hands brushed against each other’s and I felt a startling vibration. I wasn’t sure he felt it too so I kept on walking but my heart was racing like I had been running for a minute. Moments later, it happened again but this time, I didn’t need to find out if he felt it. I could see he did. Sometimes, words are not necessary. When you know, you know.
I’m feeling him and he’s feeling me too.
