– Vanilla! Hehe, your lips will taste like vanilla! Her pores exploded with the mixed emotions she was feeling. There was happiness, she’d be holding him for the first time. Nervousness of how their first time being physically in front of each other would go. All that and more that could not be contained.
He could feel her excitement although this was only through a screen. On the other hand, although he felt these exact feelings multiplied by two, he was calm. He was the calmness to her dashed personality.
–Vanilla?! What made you come up with that flavor out of the hundreds of flavors there are? Although he sounded surprised, he had already grown accustomed to her spontaneity.
– I don’t know. I just look at you and feel your lips will taste like vanilla. Anyways, don’t worry, vanilla or not, I will finally be able to taste your lips for the first time so you can prove me wrong! I could say “you have no idea of how euphoric I am for our first meet up”, but I think you do. What are your thoughts about tomorrow?
–Hmm, maybe a little more than you. I just want it to be tomorrow already so I can board that plane. I want to fast-forward until the second we’re finally in front of each other. Are you excited? He asked her even when he knew exactly the answer to that question.
– Of course! Does that even have to be asked? I’ve waited 366 days for it, and have daydreamed about it A LOT! I just wish everything is perfect. I don’t want anything to ruin it.
-What? Don’t think about that, it will be. Trust me, okay?
– Okay. She smiled. I think you should go to sleep, it’s 1:45 am over there, flight is at 9 am! I think I’ll also be going to sleep, I want to wake up early and start getting ready. I have to look the most perfect I’ve ever looked, EVER.
-Don’t worry about any of that…it will be, you will be. Yes, let’s go to sleep, tomorrow will be a huge day for both of us.
– Okay, I wish you the best of luck on your flight tomorrow morning, I hope you come safe to me. I’ll see you tomo…. That’s where she completely realized all those wishes of being together were finally turning into reality. YES, I’LL SEE YOU TOMORROW!!
-Hahaha. Yes, it’s true. No need to pinch yourself, it is happening! I’ll see you tomorrow my love, sleep well.
– Goodnight sweetie.
After ending the video call, neither of them went straight to sleep. Their eyes wandered through the ceiling, imaging how incredible the following hours and the next twenty-one days would be like….simply unforgettable.
