DO NOT COPY OR REPRODUCE MY WRITING WITHOUT MY CONSENT! PART 2 CAN BE FOUND ON MY PAGE AS WELL!
I still remember the night we met. We started off by the simple “hey,” and even that was unforgettable for me. It started to go to the troublesome “hey best friend ;))” before the story really started.
As time passed by, I grew more fond of him, and eventually starting craving him. Then I just waited until he felt the same for me. It took a while for him, about 2 long months before he said the simple three words to me, “I love you,” I replied with the same phrase, “I love you too,” Weeks passed in a flurry. Our first kiss happened soon. Funny as it is, the pixels had more meaning compared to the real kisses I had given and received in person. Then the big step came. We had FaceTimed before even viewing one another’s faces. Like meeting each other for the first time again, it started with a simple “Hey” and then instead of the “hey best friend” it was “hey babe ;))” About 8 months have past now, and we called it official. Not just IMVU and FaceTime, it was a real relationship. I came out to my friends saying that I had been online dating a guy I liked for about a year. Being my senior year in high school, we made plans to meet once we graduated. Him on the other side of the globe, and me in the states, it took convincing and loads of best wishes for him to come visit me.
Then it had hit me. Just a couple words on text. Just 15 simple words, “I can’t come to the states anymore. I’m being forced to serve in the army.” I was broken. I had been looking forward to meeting him exactly in two weeks at that time. Not only was he going to the army, but it meant that our relationship would be disconnected. I wouldn’t be able to contact him while he was at his military base.
However, the bond was unbreakable and we continued to stay with our relationship for one more year. On February 14 of 2018, I was with a friend when someone walked up to me from behind, hands covering my eyes. I heard voice I had recognized. Words I hadn’t heard in a long time. A person that I had missed for so long. “I love you,” he said.
