I used to think that people like us are meant to be stuck forever in the purgatory of knowing looks and stolen glances. But we’re not like most people and what we had was not something most people will understand. It’s amazing how, after all these years, we’ve finally reached the calm in our storm. Or at least, I did. You were always so much better at things like these. I finally learned to just let things happen (when it comes to us, I can only adjust so much) and stop willing the gears to turn the way I want them to. The ‘take-a-chance-you-won’t-die-anyway’ girl is now content with just standing on the edge and not jumping. And if the fates will feel generous and decide to place their bets on us once again, then so be it.
I didn’t find a perfect moment because I think that today was just having today. And I think we’re one of those couples with a long story when people ask how we found each other. I will see her every now and then and maybe one year she’ll be with somebody and the next year I’ll be with somebody. And it’s gonna take a long time–and then it’s perfect. I’m in no rush.
