The Next Step...

When I contacted B, I didn't know what kind of reaction I was going to get, after all it had been almost 10 years since we had parted ways and we had only seen each two other times after our falling out. Much to my delight and surprise he called me on the phone almost immediately. We chatted. It was a good chat, one of those chats that fills in all the feelings of missing that person. We were friends again. He had just come back from living in Paris for the last 3 years, he was single and now living in Toronto. I was having a long distance relationship with a fellow from Saskatchewan and had plans to move there after I graduated from Architectural Interior Design school....We continued chatting once in a while, and I must admit things were getting flirty, and as my long distance relationship dissolved, I felt like something might be happening between me and B.

It was kind of a problem. Not only was I totally not interested in having another failed long distance thing, I couldn't move there as I was in school!
So then I had an idea, you see I had to know if this was a real thing, look at him in the eye, touch him, smell him, search his face for the signs. It was a tuesday that i called him and it went something like this:

Me: Are you sitting down? I have something to tell you and I really think you should be sitting for this.

B: ok. Is it bad? should I be worried?

Me: No, no it's not bad..are you sitting yet?

B: Ok, I'm out on the patio and I'm sitting.

Me: I'm going to be at the Toronto airport on Monday...

B: Wait..what? Where are you going?

Me: What do you mean where am I going?

B: I mean are you flying somewhere? Why are you going to be at the airport?

Me: No silly I'm coming to see you! Pick me up!

Anyway, I decided on a whim to go visit B for 4 days on my reading break. I made the right decision. when I got off the plane and came down the walkway, B was looking at the other door and I could look at him in profile for a full minuet before he noticed me coming towards him...It was awesome, he looked exactly the same, and when we hugged he smelled exactly the same. I felt like I had come home.
