Alright, for sure, this has been the best week on record, barring last Sunday, but we’ll speak no more of that.
I mean, somehow I’ve spent at least a bit of my day, though usually more, with Michelle.
It’s actually kind of staggering how much time we’ve spent together in 7 days.
The choir show. It was the first time that I had hung out with such a large group in months, and it was pretty awesome, not the least because everyone seemed to enjoy “us.” Sure, we weren’t a couple, but I took a certain pride in that, and it didn’t matter as long as I managed to be happy.
She came over for the second time after the concert and spent the rest of the evening with us. It only had a fragment of the “mirror moment,” but it by no means tarnished the evening.
After spending all day trying to get her to Mel’s party, we managed to succeed, if only for a couple hours. The night was good throughout, and more than one person in that group noticed how much more active I was compared to months ago. I liked that, knowing I’ve changed even this much in a short amount of time, becoming stronger and surer of what I can do.
Even later, too, was when she finally said the words I’d hoped to hear for weeks, as we grew back to being close.
"I want us to be together, for real this time."
I’m not going to downplay how much it means to know that, straight from her.
Orchestra. It’s a pretty short meeting, and I didn’t get to tell Rardin everything I wanted to, but I guess there’s a better time and place for that.
I snuck away to visit Michelle briefly, and found some other friends, as well as finally getting Ms. Uchiyama’s number.
I snuck away again and we ended up spending a couple of hours at the mall before I walked her home. Somehow, the walk revealed the conclusion of my past with everyone before, but it also showed a future I wanted to take hold of. As it was, I found it really, really, incredibly hard to just walk away. It was kind of a miracle I made it back at all, and I found a legitimate reason to skip and dance to “You Make My Dreams.”
We met up again and spent the whole day together. From Schurr, to her house, to the mall, to Schurr once more, then to another dinner with a large group, with mostly the same people, there really wasn’t anywhere we didn’t go.
Spent the whole day at my house, most of it dozing off on my couch.
We watched Inception, we laughed at Alex’s misfortune/awkwardness, we took a walk in the rain to Starbucks.
The only thing today lacked was a moment in the mirror.
I mean, damn.
I’ve never enjoyed any amount of time I’ve spent with anyone as much as these ecstatic days. All the old memories that happened now around two years ago won’t ever hold a candle to what I’ve felt in this one week.
Everything, everything, everything
In it’s right place.
