Anna has been her best self this week.
She felt appreciated for who she is.
She’s so happy, my friends! Every woman deserves that…
Chris and Annita got to see a few different sides of each other, and now she wants to keep exploring what they have got in store. The best of what life has got to give? Slowly, no rush.
13:54 Just taking off. Thanks so much for taking me to airport. And for a magical week. I can’t wait to see you again soon. Enjoy the rest of your holidays and speak soon. Think of me when you eat your grapes. 😊
Instead of answering his message, she calls her best friend Lisa to tell her about her spring break.
“And ohhhh, Lisa. It was so fun! I felt so relaxed. You know how hard-working I am, right? Always doing something in the house and at work – a thousand projects for me and for others…
“But this week a miracle happened. I just stopped everything. I just enjoyed myself. I even sat on the sofa a few times, can you imagine that? Christian made me stop all the rush. Naturally. Just like that.”
“Seriously? Is that even possible?”
“Awww. He called our week magical. And yes, that’s the best way to describe it. It was magical!”
“Really?” — Liisa giggles — “Tell me more!”
“Gosh, I feel I’m like I’m 20 years old again! I had free time, dates. I was treated with courtesy and good mood. English manners are super sexy. All these hugs, this affection. Pure joy!
“I felt important, Lisa. Well, I certainly retributed. He earned it…
“Why did I stay in the marriage that long? Tell me, am I just dreaming now? Do tell me!”
“I’m so excited for you, Anna!”
“Thanks, Lisa. And thank you, Tinder.” — Ding! — “Hey, Christian is texting me now. Haha.”
17:11 I made it. Fell asleep and the passenger beside me woke me up after landing. Must have thought I died.
“Wait… Lisa, he is trying to call me on WhatsApp now. Can I call you back?”
Anna takes Christian’s call.
“Hello,” she says sweetly.
“Hi.” — there’s laughter in his voice — “It’s only me. I’ve just landed. I miss you so much that I had to hear your voice again,” he says with longing.
“That’s awesome. I miss you, too.” — smiles.
She texts him immediately after they hang up.
My pleasure taking you to the airport. That way I got to touch and kiss you a little more. 😊
I have some nice plans for tonight, starting with a long nap soon… I’ll miss your ears, Chris. And how you love sleeping! I’ll miss trying to wake you up.
She sends him the pics of their last date at Gringos Locos and Töölö Bay. Especially their kiss selfie.
Mmm, couldn’t stop biting your tongue. Totally irresistible. 😊 I miss you. Xx.
Anna, thanks for the pics. I’m feeling quite sad to have left you there. ☹️
I saw my son. Glad he remembers me. Hope you will wear my t-shirt tonight. Where are you sleeping? Sofa? Floor? Bed? Chair? I will imagine you next to me. And I’ll be back. 😊
There are still so many games for us to play, Christian. And I can’t believe it you beat me in some! I want my revenge. More movies, forests, walks, hugs. Would love to show you many nice places. My favorites. We also need to try out other kinds of saunas. You’re sweet! 😊
In the next few weeks (well, months), they’ll be chatting more avidly than ever. There will be frequent visits, mind-blowing dates, hot getaways, more and more unforgettable texts, precious voice messages, movie nights, novel games, new tricks for old dogs…
Sharing, dreaming, touching, growing fond of, having fun, feeling inspired, challenging one another, missing, praying, trusting, believing, questioning and way too many crises, too. Eurgh. They’ll take the good with the bad. Grateful. Appreciative. Sometimes feeling sadness and doubt. Hopeful.
And then… hmmm.
But, who knows what tomorrow will bring?? One day at a time. No rush.
