I'm teaching an electronics class in a large lecture hall when I glance out the door and see her standing there. She looks absolutely incredible
, and my mind goes blank. I dismiss the class and walk out as the students
, in their seats, as if this is some kind of joke. Smiling, I open the door and pick her up in a bear hug
. As we walk, I keep stopping to hug her, over and over again.
We walk out into the rain, talking
, and my mind won't stop spinning
She came to see me.
Maybe she still feels
Maybe there is a chance.
Now we are back at my room. I have another class to get to, but it doesn't seem to exist
to me. She is the only thing I care about.
Then it is time for her to go. I walk her out to where her family
is in the car. I joke with her dad like I used to. As she comes up to give me a final hug before leaving, I pull her tight to my body and softly kiss
her forehead. "Bye, honey.
What did I just do? What did I just say? I can't call her that anymore
. What will she think? Will she hate me?
She just smiles and gets in the car. It pulls away, and I'm looking at my clock.
4:17 - no more sleep
