She can only think of his smile and smile herself, sheepishly. She watches him from a distance, but wishes he were close to her. His twinkling eyes pull her towards him. How much she wishes he could take her in his arms. She feels lonely, but she tries to fight these feelings, because he not being there with her is making her fall in love with him.
