Falling asleep listening to his voice.

We had reconnected online. He was my grade school crush, 5th grade boy with the coolest haircut and sweetest smile, who shot me in the eye with a rubber band because he had a crush on me. We grew up as neighbors, always harbouring that crush, but never letting it out. 30 years later, we reconnected online, and innocently enough shared our mutual childhood crushes. Online chats turned into late night phone calls and eventually I grew addicted to listening to his voice as I fell asleep. I would lay my phone on my pillow, lay on it, and just listen... I fell in love with this man whom I hadn't seen in 30 years over the phone. Eventually we did meet, and married shortly thereafter. Now I listen to his sweet voice every night before I close my eyes to sleep, only now it's in person!
