13 years ago on 28 Feb he made me his girlfriend.
I wanted to do something on this Dating Anniversary. He made effort to leave work early took me out for nice dinner and back home, we did a playback of our teenage years.
And our story goes…
At then, we came from different secondary schools and becos of volleyball tournament, our paths crossed.
We first talked over phone as acquaintance who have not met and he intrigued me with his national champ title. Phone chats every evening and I now wondered what we talked. Anyway i agreed to meet him because i had once put him on hold at second line for a full hour. I totally forgot about him and was impressed guilty that he waited. He did not flare at all and resumed another usual night chat.
Finally we arranged our first meeting. I brought Kathy along while he surprised me with his batch of volleyball team mates.
He was 15.
I found him tall, lanky, tan, small eyes with nice smile. Like very much about him being shy in person and smiley.
I was 14.
He always tell me his first impression of me was “Angel” cos I’m fair & has eyes that charmed him.
We watched a movie. As I still don’t know him yet. I let a seat empty between us. The cinema was very empty anyway.
After movie, he asked if I can be his girlfriend before we part. I was too stunned and readily got him to ask my friend for answer. Kathy told him he has no chance cos I like someone else.
I thought he won’t call me anymore but he did in that evening. I was really happy. Feelings developed.
Began to wait for his calls every evening until one night he asked me to be his gf. Repeatedly asking the question in different phrasing from 8pm to 6am.
Touched by his determination and my increasing interest in him, I agreed.
I choose 28 Feb 1998 as our official date and 3 months probation. Also, included a condition: no physical contact during this period not even holding hands. Haha Why would I know probation and 3 months thing at this age? Hmm
Because we only meet once a week each time for 2 hours, he asked to renew for another 3 months and then we went on and on…
Along the years,we built something our comfortable world & lingo. We are close enough to read each others mind easily. Knows lots about each other. He actually knows my shoe size after years of shopping with me. I know exactly what food to buy for him. He said, we are the two Pisces fishes whereby no matter how we swim away from each other, we will still swim back to each other cos we belong together.
12th year, we tied the knot and had adorable little Leia.
