I tried to have a focused conversation with Stella, but we were both in such a silly mood, all we wanted to do was dance!
We danced for a little while, but then it was getting late, so I suggested a change of venue. What better place to get serious than the library? We sat down and had a serious discussion about…everything!
I started things off by bringing up her gloominess. To my surprised, she completely opened up about it! [quick author interjection…I wish their thought bubbles showed on camera, because he really did mention gloominess and she responded…at least it was the icon for the gloominess trait LOL] She said that she had been suffering from depression ever since her mom died when she was 13. I felt so deeply for her in that moment, but at the same time I felt like such an idiot for walking out on my own mother like an idiot. She said her depression was starting to be manageable, and she had been a much happier person since meeting me! Wow! As she was telling that, I started to think back on all my interactions with her. Come to think about it, she was always extra nice and flirting with me!
I get so antsy after sitting down for so long, so I asked her if she minded if I did some push-ups while she talked. Of course she didn’t mind because she was staring at my butt the whole time!
We talked late into the night about our childhoods, favorite foods, hopes and dreams, and I had a very good feeling about her. I started out by telling her that she was my best friend in the world, and she meant everything to me. I think that took her by surprise, but in a good way.
Then I told her that what we had was special, and it should be given a title. I asked her to be my girlfriend, and she happily said yes!
Over the next few days of hanging out with Stella, I noticed that our conversation had put her at ease and made her more comfortable around me. She had her feelings all pinned up inside, and I gave her the power to set them free. I found her to be even more caring than I already knew her to be. She doted on me night and day and just made me feel so special and loved.
It’s funny. Because of my shallowness (and I was also judgmental), I never gave a serious relationship with her any thought. Who would have thought I had what I wanted in my hand the entire time!
Tomorrow is my birthday, and I know exactly what I’m going to wish for.
