He told me he loved me. I told him it wasn’t possible, and chastised him for using the words too quickly and carelessly.
The next day, i got a note.
“I perhaps misphrased my attentions to you yesterday afternoon. It was then that I said ‘I love you.’ What I might have said is that ‘I love thee.’ A phrase used in a time when dragons were slain, mountains were climbed, and unimaginable deeds were performed for the sake of the feeling; a time when love was pure and endured. No, I do not love you. I love thee, and I love thee truly.”
I never again doubted his feelings.
