She was glancing at the shelf full of wild republic stuffed animals, wondering which one she should choose, when he came around the corner at 10 years old. He had the most beautiful eyes she had ever seen and a smile that could light up the world. There was also a shyness about him that reminded her of herself.
How he could have gotten to her so easily all those years ago, she didn’t know, but one thing was for certain, she was in love with that smile and those eyes, and she would be for the rest of her life. Only she would have to wait many years before those eyes reappeared and that smile came back into her life. It was a moment she would never forget and one worth waiting for.
She picked up the dragon and tiger plush toy, then smiled. These were the two she wanted. These two were meant to be.
