Everyone was boarding the boat early, except for these two. They weren’t discussing anything. The young man looked at ease, the girl, a little bit nervous.
The young man watching them briefly felt a twinge of envy. They had each other and were sure to be embarking on a journey that would never be forgotten. He had no one. His friend had found the love of his life and was going away on a one-month honeymoon across the ocean. Yes, this feeling was envy, but also a slight insecurity that his best friend was being stolen away, wouldn’t have as much time for him, and would completely change in his evolution from individual to husband.
“You all aren’t changing your minds, are you?” he called.
His friend turned and smiled. “No, no way! Bailey’s just never been on a long boat trip. Tell her it’ll be okay.”
With that, the young man walked up and hugged them both, praying they’d get back safely.
