We all ordered a glass of wine that evening. They were both meeting for the first time but both had been my long time friends for years now. It was my little test, putting them together to see if they had chemistry.

The evening dragged on and we had reached talks of long lost loves. The nostalgia was kicking in along with the wine. I savored the moments of laughter because they had been so rare in my life as of late.

As we parted ways, sharing parting kisses on the cheek, my girlfriend pulled me aside. Out of earshot of our friend, she asked, "Did you know?"

"Know what?"

"That he's in love with you?"
