I love my boyfriend

He flew back from France by way of Helsinki yesterday morning. I had a horrible day at work that lasted way longer than it was supposed to. He took the bus home from the airport. I sat through 4 hours of pointless meetings with nothing to distract me. He contacted the moving company about dates for getting his stuff to Tokyo. I drew pictures of Nakamura-sensei to pass the time. He got a "respectable" haircut. I spent 4 hours translating the results from the 90 surveys the 言語コミュニケーション students filled out into comprehensible data. He picked up stuff he needed for the students in his seminar class.

We text-messaged each other constantly. I offered to head over to Osaka to meet him. He said that that would be better for him, but he came up with a flimsy excuse to come out here to see me. I frantically cleaned my apartment (it was really nasty) and washed a lifetime's worth of dishes. He didn't have an umbrella, so he got soaked braving the typhoon-level storm with just a weather-proof jacket. I tried on at least 10 different shirts, did my makeup once, washed it off, and did it again.

He rang the doorbell. I ran for the door, almost tripping on the way. He stepped back. I swung the door open.

We both smiled. I let out a "Hi!" happy and light as my eyes. He said, "Oh, shit," in a way you'd understand if you heard it and moved towards me. I held the door open with my left hand and grabbed the front of his jacket with my right hand, pulling him to me and into my apartment.

It was a long time before we talked again, and an even longer time until we made it beyond the entryway.

I'm a happy girl.

Thanks! (But reading it just doesn't feel quite as good as living the moment did.) ^_^
