“Shawn, I’m stuck in the airport, the snow storm in Estonia has taken over the planes and I can’t leave. I’m sorry, baby, I truly am. I really wished to be there with you and your family,” You sighed standing in front of the display that shows depatures and arrivals of flights. “And I don’t know when they will let the planes to fly again.”
You managed to get time off from school to go to Canada to visit your boyfriend and his family.
“Please say sorry to your parents for being such a horrible girlfriend.”
Shawn frowned, “Baby, it’s not your fault. Please let me know if they’ll open the roads again.”
As he finished the sentence, a voice over the airport blasted from the speakers, saying important information.
“Shawn, I have to go now. I love you,” and you hung up as the information in your home language ends soon and you are too tired to listen to English.
The information said:
“As the snow plow machine are working on full power and the flight road is soon to be clear and open, the first flight to leave is an Air Baltic flight to Amsterdam. Please move to your gate, the number is 15. Boarding starts in 10 minutes. Please have your boarding pass and passport with you. Thank you and have a nice day!”
You felt a relief on your heart and shoulders. As you already were at the gate already, you had your ticket and passport ready with you. The ten minutes pass as an one minute, people starting to line up in the queue, you’re still sitting on the bench. You knew that you could choose a seat by yourself on the first flight so didn’t mind if you got the worse place to sit because the longest ride was still ahead and there you had an amazing and comfortable sitting place. The flight from Tallinn to Amsterdam takes about 2h 30mins, flight from Amsterdam to Toronto about 8h 25mins. You knew, most of the time you would be sleeping and before landing you would think about how you would surprise him and so on.
The flight to Amsterdam was very smooth and normal even tho it was told to be very windy above the clouds. The transfer from Amsterdam wasn’t very long so you didn’t have to worry about being late to your continuing flight. You only worried about the thing how would you go and greet your boyfriend and his family.
As you take your seat in the plane, you don’t fell asleep right away. You open the film folder where you can see Harry Potter films appearing on the screen. You choose Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire because it reminds you the nights you have had with Shawn when he came to see you in your home country. When you feel your eyes bear from the tiredness, you close the screen and set your head aside against the plane’s wall and get some sleep.
When somebody touches your shoulder, you give the seat neighbour a sleepy glance. He only smirks and says that it’s time to eat. You yawn and massage your eyes. When the flight attendant handles your meal, your nose detects a good smell from the package. As you open the meal pack, a delicious meat/fish/any food you like screams going into your hungry tummy.
After you finish your food, you fell back asleep because you still have 4 hours to fly.
Arriving to Toronto, you take your luggage and look for the train station. You try to avoid gathered crowd because it gives you anxiety and as you pass them, you feel a huge ease and make to the exit. You manage to find the train stop and go on a brown (UP) line. You drive 3 stops and then take another, red (Lakeshort East), line which takes to Pickering. It takes about 31 min to get there. As you reach your final destination, you try to look for the Mendes’ household. The orientating isn’t your best skill, so, you ask few people where’s that address. You walk some meters and sigh from tiredness and happiness. In the first thought, you didn’t understand it how did you make it to there. You drop your luggage down and knock on the door. Your eyes start to fill with water but you wipe them away. Those teardrops weren’t meant to come but you felt so happy being behind the door.
As you were about to squat down because of tiredness, somebody unlocks the door. Karen looks at you, being in a shock.
“Oh my gosh,” she whispered, “Y/N, how–”
“Yeah, same,” I chuckle. I hug her gently and smile. “I’m very happy to see you.”
Pulling out from the hug, Karen shouts everybody to come to the front hall. I drag my heavy luggage in and close the door behind me.
Aaliyah has an awe in her face and runs to hug me tightly. “Nice to see you, Y/N!”
Manny comes next to embrace me, he seems to be very surprised as well. “I thought you couldn’t come, haha.” He said that very happily.
But Shawn wasn’t in your sight.
“Where’s Shawn?” you ask sorrowfully.
“He’s in his room,” Aaliyah answered in a hush tone. You leave your luggage at the same place as they were and rush upstairs.
You open the door quietly and see Shawn laying down on his bed, sleeping. You slink next to him where’s a free room on the bed and set down yourself. You watch the handsome, flawless boyfriend sleeping peacefully, his hands under the pillow. Drawing smoothly some shapes on his cheek, he moves and jolts as he sees you.
“Y/N!” his raspy voice fondles your ears. “What are you doing here?”
You let a giggle, pecking his lips shortly. “I don’t know, maybe you know the answer?”
He palms his eyes to wake up more, “When did you arrive?”
“Just few minutes ago.”
He cups your cheek with his large, but soft hands and kisses you passionately. “Just said you couldn’t come.”
“I know, but they made the planes to fly again. I’m so happy to see you.”
He kisses you again, “Thank you for coming here! I was literally already about coming back to Estonia. Come on, baby, get done with the school already or just leave it.”
You play with his nose with yours on it and twinkle from happiness. “I’m graduating in one year. But then university comes. How the hell I am suppose to get out from that ‘dragging the hell out of me’ house? I mean, I love to get educated but I want to be with you all the time.”
Shawn places a hair strand behind your ear and says, “You’ll come and study in Toronto. It’s a demand. No more choices. And even if the student fee is a problem, we’ll work it out.”
He places his tattooed hand under my body, leaning it into a touch with my back.
“You mean so much to me,” you say calmly. “I love you to the moon and back.”
“You know, Y/N, I love you to the way out of Milky Way and back–it’s more longer route than to the Moon.”
“You silly,” you laugh and kiss him. “you should be glad that I made it here.”
“I’m very-very glad and so freaking happy,” Shawn said, the smile didn’t appear from his gorgeous face.
