I love how you managed a convo between strangers struggling to leave their life behind. The feels were strong. But imho, when you described 'not in romantic or sexual way’, to me, it kinda distracted my imagination. I know that you tried to softly direct my mind. But maybe it would be better if you say it like “he squeezed her hand; showing her that he cared about her even he didn’t know her at all.” (just an example) so that my imagination doesn’t think anything else. Most of all, this is reaaaallllyy good 😊 I love this!!!
