An Interactive Twilight Experience.
Recently, I had a visitor who surprised me at work. He is the man I called mine for several years and then we went our separate ways. He moved to the city, taking a job in a lab. With his smarts, it didn't surprise me. I stayed behind of course, because we decided to see other people. I'm sure he had his share of dates and girlfriends since. I have gone on a few myself, but I have not found anyone that compares to him. And then he showed up at my work. Somehow, I always new that Eric and I would reunite, even if it wasn't a romantic relationship. We reconnected during dinner after. He talked about how he recently broke up with a girl named Aubrey and how they were together for about 6 months. I couldn't help but feel a tinge of jealousy that he had a girlfriend up until recently. During that conversation, my eyes were opened and I found myself thinking about my future.
Here I am, 27 years old. I have a decent job at Forks High School and I enjoy it, but I feel like something is missing in my life. I see people my age getting married and having babies. Even my own sister, who is 21, just got engaged. All of that flashed before my eyes during dinner.
After dinner, we went out to La Push and walked on the beach like we used to do and just casually talked about memories we made with each other and about how we miss that. We ended the night at my car, which was still parked at the restaurant. He said something to me that makes me hopeful that we can be together again. I could swear I heard him say 'I love you', as he got back into his car. My mother thinks I was probably just hearing things, but I know he said it. Needless to say, I will be planning a trip to Seattle soon, to see Eric again.
My perfect future involves Eric and I will not accept anything else.
