Today was my court hearing, which entails waking up earlier than usual, wearing a suit, and feeling a high level of stress. While I was seated waiting for my name to be called, I saw this elderly couple next to me.
Their hair was grey, skin was wrinkly, and time had made its mark on their body. The husband gave his wife a piece of candy. Surprised, she gave him a smile and shared a moment. Somehow, just like that, my day seemed less dull and terrible.
I witnessed an act of love.
I like to think I’m pretty observant of people’s behavior. How two people express love has always intrigued me. I can’t say I know what love is. Hollywood has their conception of love, but it’s far from the reality. What happens after? I’m still trying to find an answer, but today gave me hope.
