The long wait is over.

I was in a meeting when Jay texted me asking what time daw labas ko. I was curious about the question because I know, he knows my shift. And for the first time, he asked me about it. I wondered why he had to ask that. But I just replied. And then asked him kung matutuloy siya on that night para sumakay nang barko papunta dito sa Manila. That's what he told me, na tuesday night ang alis niya sa CDO, and by thursday, andito na siya sa Manila. He answered that tuloy siya.
And then, after that reply, he then asked me kung magkikita ba kami today. Lalo akong napaisip. Paano kami magkikita eh wala pa naman siya dito. Doon na ako nagtaka. Tinawagan ko agad siya. When he answered, I heard a noisy background and it sounded like it was an airport noise. And guess what, nasa airport na nga siya. He was planning to surprise me pala but he asked a wrong question kaya nahuli ko din siya. And he just laughed about it. It was sweet though to surprise me kahit nabulilyaso. Hehe.
This is it. Jay will finally be here in an hour. Gusto niyang magkita kami pagdating niya as he wants me to be the first person that he's gonna be with pagdating niya dito. He planned to pick me up at work paghatid niya nang gamit sa baclaran when he arrives. Although alam kong may konting lagnat siya at pagod sa biyahe, I wanted to see him na din kaya pumayag ako. It was sweet of him to say those things and to do such effort.
Pagdating niya sa Northgate to pick me up, it was a romantic moment for me. To see him again, and for him to know where I work, and to spend his time with me on the day he arrived here, it was a magical feeling. Although walang scene but inside of me was a moment I cannot forget. We then went to festival Mall to have our lunch together.
We had our lunch at Serye dahil pihikan sa pagkain si Jay. Madaming bawal. We went to Pizza factory first pero wala siyang nagustuhang food kaya we transfer. As always, food is great at Serye especially their BBQs. After our lunch, we stralled muna pampatunaw nang kinain and checked some new clothes sa F&H, Oxygen, and Solo. He wanted to buy a new shirt but we weren't able to find a good shirt for him.
We then decided to watch a movie since it was still ear. We chose Forbidden Kingdom dahil mahilig sa action movie si Jay. Although I'm not a fan of action movies, I enjoyed it lalo na kay Jackie Chan who is always encorporating humor in his movies. Maganda actually yung movie at hindi lang siya puro asian action scenes. Namawis nga yung kamay ko dahil hindi binitawan ni Jay the whole time we were watching. Humihigpit ang hawak kapag action scenes na. Hehe.
After manood, we went to Watsons para bumili nang mga toiletries niya. At that time, antok na ako at galing pa akong work at wala pa masyadong tulog. Pero siyempre, I won't waste the chance to be with him kaya balewala ang pagod at antok pag kasama mo ang mahal mo. Pero siyempre, since alam niyang may pasok pa uli ako, after buying his stuff, hinatid na niya ako sa sakayan at umuwi na kami pareho. Pagdating ko nang house, bulagta na agad ako sa kama at nagtext na lang ako nang goodnight.
It was a great day for us. I love being with him. It always feels good when I'm beside him. I feel a different person pag kasama ko siya. I turn into a child feeling safe and secured whenever he is around. He's always been a comfort to me, making me feel so good about life. Till we see each other again on friday as we hit the road and sail to the island of Puerto Gallera....
