They first met about 5 years ago, and were incredibly shy with each other. He was intimidated by her big hair and flamboyance, and she was just amazed at how colorful and friendly he was. At their first meeting, they hit it off immediately, but decided to take things slow, because they were both cautious of how fast moving relationships could also burst into thin air.
Even then, they knew they wanted things to last. So, they kept off being too close until about 6 months into getting to know each other.
As fate would have it, their lives then became incredibly intertwined. And soon, having now known each other for more than a few months, they could declare their adoration for each other, and hang out every free minute they had.
He became her bestest guy friend in the world. They shopped (till this day he remains her bestest shopping buddy ever - well, except for Super Mummy, that is), went on holidays, ate, gossipped, cried over loves found and lost and lost and found, started a business, and even started living together.
They were inseparable. And the times they shared with each other and their wonderful friends were magical. Some of the best times of her life.
Then she decided she had dreams that she wanted, and that those dreams would take her far far away from where she was. And in the midst of saying goodbye and leaving the house they shared, she felt that this was the end. Because distance does not bear well for many. And she knew in her heart that when she left, she'd also be leaving so many that she loved. And that so many would forget her and that her place would be easily replaced.
And so it was. But not for him. He was different. And in him, she found she had a special place. She knew he loved her, faults and all, and he knew that he'd always have a home wherever she was. Even with the distance, they saw each other continuously through career moves, love mishaps, good times, bad times, all times.
And, as far she went, he followed, in calls, messages, visits. And for that, she is eternally grateful, because in him she sees her past and her future, all rolled up in one cuddly, lovable teddy bear.
And so they lived happily ever after. A trillion miles away from each other.
Happy Birthday my Sayang Super Megs. You know I love you, and always will.
