He takes another step forward and wraps his arms around me in a hug. Warmth fills me and soothes the parts of our body that touch.
"Please," he mumbled in my hair, "you can't run away now. Not when I just let you in."
Here in his arms, I don't want to leave anymore. I feel completely and perfectly safe.
"You won't hurt me." I don't know if I mean that as a question or a statement. But he answers it.
"No, I promise," he says. And I believe him.
