“We were driving back from my girlfriend’s parents. We had just switched seats when halfway through the car ride so that she could sleep after I had slept. My hand rested on hers, both resting on her thigh. It had gotten pretty late. It was close before midnight. I saw no car on the road. The car’s headlights shone among the asphalt that dashed away underneath us. The surrounding darkness, the air conditioner blasting warming air in our faces and the subtle but consistent noise of the engine created our own small universe inside the old car. In this moment I felt very close to her. It was as if we had our very own space to be together, gliding through the night. I felt very emotional.” anonymous
