This wasn't a crush anymore.
There was no blushing or stuttering or any of the general flustered clumsiness that one-sided lovers possess
His feelings were clearer, refined to something purer, like daybreak on a frosty winter morning, brilliant warmth solidified to diamond-hard consistency,
indefinitely fastening his heartstrings to hers like it was Destiny whispering to him saying
'She's the one'.
