Boarding Time: 7:30 PM
I was half-hearted to stand and alight from the plane for reasons incomprehensible. But I dragged myself down while trying to recall the last time we saw each other.
In no time, I saw you at the arrival area, waving your hand. Your eyes were filled with excitement as you flash that smile which made me fall for you since time immemorial. And just like the picture I have painted on my mind, we met halfway. We came rushing towards each other, your eyes meeting mine. Never caring about the other people in the arrival area, I touched your face and was about to give you that kiss I longed to plant on your lips. But you, you opted for a big hug, a tight one lasting for more than a minute.
And while we were not letting go of each other, I was trying to discern the reason I came here:
It was when you left me that I realized that in my pursuit for happiness, it was in you I am thinking of; that in my deepest moments, it was your company I am missing; that every time I search for someone to be there for me, it was you I was longing for.
I find it odd that as I let go of that hug and finally have a close glimpse at your eyes, it dawned on me that my reasons and my feelings aren’t the same anymore as before. I gave you another tight hug just to be sure, and glanced at my return ticket:
