The Boy with Roots

He is the boy with roots.

From afar, you cannot see them – he hides them behind his forgettable face, his lopsided smile.

He hides them well.

And then, in a moment you would not expect it, you find his arm around you and his head on your shoulder, and while he looks past you, you find you have memorized his face, and you can feel them growing.

He has roots underneath your skin.

    Commencing eyeroll sequence. RIGHT. The same face and smile that can make you swoon like a twelve-year-old girl in a Beiber concert? Hahaha. Just kidding.
