These last few days, I’ve been daydreaming about having a 9 year old girlfriend. She’d come over and hang out, playing video games and watching Netflix with me. I’d make us a good meal of comfort food. We’d laugh and joke and have a good time, like romantic besties (I’m going to use that phrase more often).
While watching movies or shows, she’d lie across me and look up with those innocent “Please love me” eyes. I’d then pull her up on my lap and we wrap our arms around each other, as she melts in my arms. She would give me a wet but playful smooch before laying her head on my chest, and I’d kiss the top of her head. We would then fall asleep holding each other. I would feel so loved and safe in that moment.
