Conjugating Love

They were maybe sixteen years old and definitely not breaking up.

She had practically collapsed, looking at her iphone.

Watching him comfort her, pushing her hair away to stroke her face, pointing down the street that  spoke of a plan to make things better, hugging her, holding her when she burrowed deeper into his embrace... I thought who says you're too young to know what love is?

You know when you put your arms around someone because you want to make it better.  You know when you bury your heartbreak into those arms and feel better.
