I regretted it the moment I agreed. I knew how the night would end for me but I was desperate to evade the feeling of loneliness from the relationship I was in at the time. I figured anything must be better than going back to my apartment on a Saturday night to wallow in my sorrows.

A puppy love that I hope will grow into what we have today.
