Our expressions matched then. My eyes got wide and my jaw hit the floor. He never forgot about me. That thought made me smile at him. I haven't smiled at anyone for a long time. I mean really smiled. Because I was purely happy. Not to make someone think that I was or because I was drunk. I boggled my head up and down and giggled at him. I had never felt so happy. At this he smiled even bigger than I was smiling and ran across the floor. He ran at me and embraced me.
"I've missed you so much. You could never understand." He was happy to see me too. He really was.
"Reese. We need to talk." He let go of me.
"The hell we do! I haven't seen you since we were stinking 8 years old!" He was still grinning ear to ear. His eyes never lost that sparkle. Not even after all these years.." can we go somewhere private?" I asked him. " I feel like we are making a scene..." I looked around at all the eyes staring. Some people were smiling and mouthing "awhhh" to their friends. Others, (cheery little desk lady) were scowling or rolling their eyes at us. Reese laughed. "Yeah. That would probably be a good idea." He grabbed my hand. "We can go to my office." He led me down a hallway. Him holding my hand made me feel like we were kids again. Like we were running down the hallway of the orphanage trying to runaway from monsters or imaginary cops because we just robbed an imaginary bank. Back when the only thing that both of us had was each other. Him holding my hand was like him pulling me back to what I had been missing from my entire life. Friendship. Our hands molded because we had spent so much time together in the orphanage. They molded together together like they were made for one thing and one thing only. To hold each other. That is what made me 100% sure that he never found anybody else.
