Once upon a time I met a girl the night before valentines day and even as we were gorging ourselves on taco bell I couldn't help but think to myself how beautiful she looked. Even throughout the night she became more and more attractive to me, but seemed like forbidden fruit. But then I finally built up enough courage to call her and as the nights kept passing and the more we talked I could tell that she was someone that I could grow to like. When the moment came for me to meet her in person I was so full of nervous angst that i was sure that I was going to make a fool of myself and that she wouldn't like me. Even as we were laying together in bed on a rainy day I still wasn't sure how to approach the delicate situation and then something happened... we kissed! I knew from then on that this girl was someone that would have a definite impact on the path that my life was taking. As the few short months after that day went by I grew to not only view this girl as a lover but also as a close friend. The story takes a sad turn when I had to leave for a whole year to a foreign land full of danger but still our bond grows stronger. I know that this girl is someone special and that something greater than coincidence or even fate has brought us together. I get to go home in just 3 short months to see this girl again and I cant wait to hold her in my arms and kiss her with all the pent up passion that is inside me. My heart, even though we are a world apart, is starting to mend and prepare itself. This girl, as wonderful as she is, has awakened something inside me that I thought was gone forever.. The feelings Im starting to have for this girl are getting me through this trying time in my life and even though I wont see her for three more months I meet her every night in my dreams. There we drink and dance, laugh and kiss. These wonderful dreams will soon come true but for right now I can only dream.
