Four years and counting
Yesterday was supposed to be a very special day for me and Leo. It was our 4th year anniversary of being together as boyfriend-girlfriend. But the celebration paled in comparison with the previous years. No surprises this time. No flowers, no chocolates, not even a card! Oh muses, is this a taste of what lies ahead? I was a little disappointed of course, good thing dinner was filling. We get to try Chef Donatello out of curiosity. Since there’s Chef D’angelo already, I am predicting there will be Chef Rafael and Chef Master Splinter soon hahaha!
Anyways, while stuffing myself with pasta, pizza and chicken, I mustered enough courage to ask for my flowers. Leo laughed and shrugged my question off. After four years he still thinks I am joking when I ask for flowers! Gah! I decided to keep quiet. When he sensed my brewing tampo, Leo finally said that he’s more that 100% sure that I wouldn’t even carry the flowers because I get conscious of people looking at me. End of discussion. He knows me. So maybe the flowers are a waste of money. But still, a girl’s a girl …I stopped acting disappointed and finished dinner.
As always he walked me home. I didn’t know that he managed to slip something in my wallet until the following morning. While paying for fare, I noticed a piece of paper covering our picture that I keep in my wallet. A love letter of sorts. I must admit he gets better at it. So with or without the flowers, it’s four years and counting.
