My name is Josh. I was once a couch potato but this girl; well, let’s just say this girl changed me. She’s Mia. I met her at the park when I was buying a hotdog. She went up to me and said
“Hey! Your shoelace is untied.”
So, I tied my shoelace and said thank you. I saw her face and my God she’s beautiful. I didn’t waste any time. So, I introduced myself. She asked me.
“Do you jog?”
So, I told her that I do. Of course it was a lie. How could I jog if I was so damn lazy?! But what could I do? I just want to impress her. I want to know her more. I can’t stop staring at her. Her beautiful eyes, her perfect pouty lips, her fair skin tone. Gosh! She’s perfect. I was lost in my thoughts. I came back to my senses when I heard her voice.
“Good! So, I’ll see you then? You see I’m new here and it would be such a relief if someone would tour me.”
Is it me or is she really asking me to go with her? Well what am I waiting for? I should say yes then.
“Oh, it would be my pleasure if I myself would tour you.”
And there you have it, we became friends. We jogged together every morning and we always meet at the same place where we first met. I admit, jogging everyday was so tiring but it’s all worth it knowing that you would be with the girl who you want to be with. Cheesy aren’t I? Hahaha, well I think that’s the effect of love to people. Yes, I used the word love because I knew deep inside that I feel something for her. I know it’s too soon to say this but I think I love her.
Each passing day, my feelings grew stronger and that’s when I realized that I need to take a step forward in our relationship.
January 5, 2008, I asked Mia to be my girl. Luckily, she said yes. As corny as it sounds, I think I’m the luckiest man alive because I get to have the most beautiful girl in the world.
Just like every couple, we also have those so called “term of endearment”, we call each other baby. Haha, I know it’s weird to call your partner “baby” but we think the word “baby” suits our relationship and it also suits us. A baby needs to be taken care of. It has to have its needs in order to for it to become stronger. You have to shoe your LOVE to the baby because love is the most powerful thing in this world. Babies are fragile. One wrong move it will get hurt. Just like a baby, we also have to be taken care of. Without the love and care coming from your partner, your relationship will surely become a mess. A relationship is fragile, one wrong move and it’s GAME OVER. So yeah, that’s how we’ve come up to the baby thing. Okay, enough said about the baby thing.
We still jog every morning and after and after that, we eat outside, go home, and watch TV then play. We always do that stuff almost every day. It’s like our daily routine, you know. Tell you what; we’ve been dating for a year now. And a year feels like forever when I’m with her.
But, we became too comfortable with each other. We became too comfortable that we went over our boundaries. One night, when we were having our dinner, someone called me. So, I said
“hey baby? Can I take this call?” she said “oh sure. Just be quick.”
So I took the call and I regret that I answered it because that fucking phone call ruined our relationship. Wanna know all the details? Well, my best friend asked me to go out but then I rejected the offer because I had to have dinner with my girl.
“What?! Dinner with your girl at 5pm? Since when did you have dinner at 5?! Damn! Your girl’s boring!” he said.
I didn’t know that Mia was listening to our conversation.
“yeah my girls boring…” I said. Mia then walked out not hearing what I said next. “but I love her and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
I returned to the table and smiled at Mia. “sorry for taking so long.”
“No it’s okay. I’m boring anyway, right?”
I was so shocked when she said that. She heard me? Wait, if she heard me, then why is she mad? Didn’t she hear me tell Liam that I love her and there’s nothing he can do about it? Ah crap!
