It started out like all good love stories should: with a crash,
and a crackle of fireworks set off in your chest. That was how Taehyung careened into your life at the crisp age of seven and three quarters, complete with a gap in his teeth,
and a collage of plasters stuck to his knees.
You’d been sitting on the step outside your house, reading
in the last rays of sun that were cracking through the clouds, when he had cycled past
on his bike, and… crash! You jumped up, and ran to where he lay in a crumpled heap at the bottom of your lawn.
Choking on a spout of concerned questions, you bent over him, trying to check for damage. Despite the small trickle of blood escaping from a scrape on his leg, he burst out laughing. Which threw you completely. How
could he take a tumble, then sit up and shake it off, hold
out his hand for you to shake, and just like that, shake awake
something new inside you?
