In an exact instant, the moment we saw each other was almost completely in-sync with one another. Three seconds, with eyes fastened onto his, prolonged into what felt like minutes.
A gelid, blue gaze tapped into my very core. In that moment, I felt my body along with every bone, every organ, and every vein in it, tense with a heady fright.
I did not know him before this moment, nor had I ever seen him before, but with such a gravitational force between his eyes and mine, I somehow knew the universe wanted me to.
I think maybe he sensed how vulnerable this knowledge made me become.
When the oxygen abandoned my lungs momentarily, a small, faint grin visited his lips--a smile so faint, I was ultimately only intrigued by whether or not it was malicious or genuine.
Yet, with all of the will power I had to exude, I turned my cheek, but I could still feel him staring.
