the boy is shy

I walked down the stairs and he rushed up.  I knew he was shy, but I hadn’t realized how much.  I said hi to his sister and glanced back at the stairs, he lingered and then moved up a few.  My feet took me two steps away, he moved back down, but when he saw I didn’t go far he went back up.  I did it again, he did it again.  Finally, I realized, he wouldn’t come down till I left.

They say, “The boy is shy,” I only now, realize how much.
