This is the day I’ve been waiting for. The night when we’d travel to Bicol. I was really looking forward to this day. But I wasn’t sure if it was because I wanted him to see me okay, or just that I really wanted to be with him. But whatever. I was so busy the entire day I even forgot to take my meals.
Anyway. This was the first time we were together again. And the first time that I was able to smile back at him when our eyes met. And I think that’s a big step for me.
