Dedication: I have to dedicate this to the many writers who have been an inspiration to get me writing again. Their stories are amazing and so much better than mine! @gratitudejoyandsorrow @manuelmiranduh @secretschuylersister @gayforeliza @musicalmiranda @ourforgottenboleros @letsgiggletogether @nonstop-laurens @teamgtnw @hamwriters and so many that I have forgotten! You are all amazing! Keep doing what you are doing!
You fit right into your new life. There wasn’t really much doubt as you knew your boyfriend would not let you fall. You adjusted to your new apartment, even though you missed Maia terribly, you knew that if you wanted your relationship with Lin to keep growing, that this was the necessary step. The only bad part of the apartment was that it put you about five stops further north from where you already were. Thus, making your commute to school even longer. You considered finding a school that was maybe closer to your new place. Also with the new apartment, came the end of the school year.
As you sat on the balcony of the apartment (you had a balcony! A freaking balcony and air-conditioning!) drinking your coffee, you couldn’t help but think of how far your life had come in just over two years. You were amazed at the view and the park nearby. You were amazed at the neighborhood that you now called home and how welcoming they had been. You were-
“Hey babe, don’t you have to work today, it’s half past 6 and you should be halfway to school by now,” Lin sleepily asked. You loved waking up next time and seeing him at peace. He always seemed to be go-go-go all hours of the day, but even then, he still looked at you like you were the most amazing person in the world. He knew that you thought less of yourself but he wanted to make it his mission that you knew just how amazing you were. Just like you he loved falling asleep with you every night and waking up to you every morning. He wondered what he did to deserve someone so driven, so smart, so sure of where she wanted to be in life, and so devastatingly beautiful. When he had awoken this morning and noticed you still out on the balcony, he worried that something was wrong.
