Last night I dreamt that, sitting in a room full of friends and people we know, she suddenly announced to everyone that I was her girlfriend and that she was about to dump her boyfriend.

My jaw dropped, and the rest of her words faded out as my brain blanked. I couldn't believe she was telling them... what was she doing? My heart was simultaneously filled with joy and saddened, as I knew how much dumping him would hurt her, and how difficult this decision must have been.

I sat frozen in place, reeling at what this meant. I wouldn't have to hold myself back, emotionally or physically, again.

Getting what you want most of all is pretty damn cool, even if it is just a dream.
