Holding Hands

She was terrific to hold hands with.
 Most girls if you hold hands with them, their goddamn hand dies on you, or else they think they have to keep moving their hand all the time, as if they were afraid they’d bore you or something.
Jane was different. We’d get into a goddamn movie or something, and right away we’d start holding hands, and we wouldn’t quit till the movie was over. And without changing the position or making a big deal out of it.
You never even worried, with Jane, whether your hand was sweaty or not.
All you knew was, you were happy.
You really were.

I have been reading the catcher in the rye over easter, and thought this passage to be beautifully written.
You put it across so nicely with the emphasis on the bolds and underlines, love it louise! (:
