It had been about two weeks since he had last called, and we had gone out. I was beginning to think he had pulled another disapearing act on me. Did I care? Perhaps not as much, but I was still curious to see where the hell he had been. Well as I walked home the other night, I suddenly turned to the window of the chinese restaurant I was passing by, and there he was. He was enjoying a meal with a few of his buddies. I didn't feel like stopping and saying hi. The reason, I was afraid to show too much interest, because everytime I did, it seemed that it made him disappear. So I just kept walking, and just thought: at least he's not with another girl, followed by a quick mental chuckle.
To my surprise, today as I checked my phone for missed calls.....there it was THE CALL. He had called yesterday and I hadn't noticed. So as soon as I left class I called him and casually asked: Hey did you call me yesterday? As it turned out he was across the street and we met up for a quick smoke. He asked me for help with a project and we agreed to meet later that afternoon. Sure enough, he called two hours later and I invited him to my place. So there we were once again. We smoked a cigarette and shared a few hugs and kisses in my terrace as the sun set. It was the perfect moment. To make a long story short after 15 arduous minutes of project related work...we ended up making out followed by sex. This didnt surprise me, but what did was what came after. We layed in my bed for hours talking, but really talking, oh and kissing and yes cuddling. He told me the reason he hadnt called was that he wanted to see if I would call, but gave up. He also told me that we had a funny relationship, but that he liked it. He also told me he had never been in a serious relationship and the idea was mind boggling to him. As he talked I realized how much alike we were, and it was precisely what kept us from having a "real" relationship. But you know what I realized I was happy with what we have. There are people like us who are meant to be exactly what we are to one another and nothing more.
