I woke up on a on a Sunday afternoon feeling refreshed after having just finished my second year of University. Getting out of bed I walk into the kitchen and prepare myself a hot bowl of oatmeal when I suddenly remembered that today was Nick and I’s three year anniversary. Struggling with the fact that this was the first time we were not together for our milestone, I ran to my phone and texted Nick “Happy anniversary babe! Can’t believe it has already been three years! I love you and I miss you so much! <3”
While I wait impatiently for Nick to respond I reminisce on our last three years together. He has been nothing but incredible and I can’t believe he’s mine. My phone vibrating snaps me out of my thoughts as I see Nick’s name pop up on the screen. I excitedly open the message but my smile quickly fades as the reply only read “Same”.
Is that all I get? After three years together he can only bother to respond with one single word? Frustrated and disappointed I crawled back into bed in hopes of dreaming away the hurt that I felt. As sleep almost completely over takes me I hear a faint knock on my door. Too tired and lazy to get out of bed I decide to ignore the knock, but the knocking persisted. Not caring that my hair was disheveled and I was wearing worn out pajamas, I begrudgingly answered the door.
My heart stops beating as I hear the voice I’ve been longing to hear utter the words “Hello beautiful”. I look up to see those beautiful golden eyes that I love so much staring lovingly into my soul. I can’t believe he’s actually here. I leap forward as Nick envelopes me into his arms. As I’m in his embrace everything is perfect. He then gently places me down and grazes my right cheek with his strong hand as he says with a chuckle “Did you really think I was going to leave you all alone on our anniversary?” As I take in the moment I realize how foolish I was to think that Nick would only send a lame one word text on our anniversary. Before I know it we are both leaning in and I suddenly feel his lips on mine moving perfectly in sync just as they always have. We pull away for a moment and rest our foreheads on one another while we are mesmerized by each other’s eyes. Our fingers are intertwined when Nick breathes out “I love you”. Feeling the happiest I’ve ever felt there is only one way describing our love “Always and forever”.
