Of fights and showing up

DEREK: "I was a jerk. Sometimes boyfriends can be jerks, but it doesn't mean you stop talking to them... You get that I'm saying I'm sorry, right?"
MEREDITH: "You yelled at me for no reason, and then you walked away. And now you show up here."
DEREK: "Of course I showed up. Why wouldn't I? You don't trust me?"
DEREK: "Okay, well this is how it works. You fight sometimes and somebody apologizes."
MEREDITH: "Well, how am I supposed to know that?"
DEREK: "You've never done this before."
MEREDITH: "No, I've never done this before."
DEREK: "From now on, you can expect that I'm gonna show up. Even if I yell. Even if you yell. I'm always gonna show up. Okay?"

We were late. We thought we could reach there in time but my timing was off by 10 minutes. As we reached the platform closer, I asked her to search for him. We both spotted him, dressed casually in his jeans instead of the usual suit. The young lady ran towards him while I tried to keep my pace. He gave her a hug and a quick peck on her cheeks. It was a beautiful sight to see how comfortable she was wrapped around his arms.

Then he looked up and our eyes met. It was the moment that I knew how much I missed him. I knew it was a hassle for him to come here as the travel route was not ideal. Despite it took him more than one stopover and not being able to come here immediately after the conference which left him spending an extra day in the historical city located in central Bohemia, he didn’t seem to be bothered. All I could see was how happy he was to be here.

We were not spared from the usual misunderstandings and again, he reminded me why he was here. At that moment, I felt it was a scene taken from the above and I couldn’t stop smiling. The guy who asked me to stop watching Greys as my emotions correlated to the episodes was mirroring a similar scene.

By now, he has safely arrived at his destination. All I could think of was those silly fights we had and how I wish I can have them over and over again.

Strange enough, it is raining cats and dogs as I am writing this, making it more difficult to not miss him.

Ms B,
Obviously, you're in love ;-)
But please avoid those silly fights. It might be fun and soapy for some time, but it might also hurt one way or the other. Try filling up the air with words of romance, instead....

Ms B said...


yes dear... the 'friend'. *blushed*

so when exactly is this coffee session? Pls pls text me k. I am on leave from 16 onwards.

Ms B said...


I think at my age plus the past experience, love is somewhat blur. I cherish what I have, enjoy the moment and hope for the best. I dont make plans, but rather let things run on its course.

I shall take note on your advice. Now where's my love dictionary...

Ms B said...

Hi danial,

ah, thanks! I realise i didnt have any during my sick period. a record of not having a cup of mocha for 8 days straight.

Ms B said...


I believe it is the hormones. *grins* ah, I too was touched by the moment. Looking at them being so at ease.

Rob Thomas rocks! *winks*
