by all accounts I shouldn't have gotten such a great ending
I spent so many years miserable because I couldn’t put my arms around my girlfriend (then my ‘definitely not girlfriend’), or hear her laugh at my dumb scattershot jokes, or stand with her in the middle of the sidewalk on a sunny fall day sharing messy street food, or take her temperature with a kiss when she’s sick.
it was a long time. it was hard. I was so unhappy.
but today, despite an uphill battle against circumstances and the whole goddamn Pacific Ocean, I got to do every one of those things, and it keeps being better than I ever imagined.
lily and i audio call on skype when we’re going to sleep bc we’re cute as fuck but anyways lily fell asleep like an hour or two ago and i just fell off the bed and cut my knee so naturally i started swearing and lily started slowly waking up and all she said was “huh?? i love you what happened”
