Tonight was last minute but it could not have been more fulfilling. You finally opened up to me and proved that you have emotions! I have been waiting for this day for so long. It is not that I felt that I deserved an explanation, but let us face it, I did. An explanation for me waiting for so long, for what you told me that evening, and so many other things…I finally understand why you are the way you are. Yes, things changed after that night, but my love for our friendship has not. Like I told you tonight, it is not that I am done waiting, it is just that I am done trying to make it happen. We both needed tonight and for this conversation to take place. Now I hope that you are more open with me and willing to share, baby steps though, baby steps.
Being there tonight, even though it was for a short amount of time, brought back memories. I remember when that used to be my environment…and for a few minutes, I missed it. I want to think it was the social aspect of it that I missed and luckily D agreed. It meant a lot that he went with me. I know that was completely out of his comfort zone, especially when he got offered a drink. What a blessing he has been in my life.
