Hasn’t updated Our Story for a while. Here’s my true story I never revealed. Might get a lil too long, but bear with me. It’s about my secret trip to Sydney last Easter. I still couldn’t believe it happened.
I have never been a good kid. I have always been so rebellious that, the more restricted that is, the more I'm tempted to go for it. I still remembered that moment when I walked home, on the next day after my 20th birthday, I felt the desperation to visit Z in Sydney. Me and Z had been talking about that, but it didn’t get real. Until that moment I spontaneously bought my flight ticket, without telling anyone in the world, that I knew it's really happening now. Fyi, regretfully, my parents knew nothing about this, not even now. (Honestly, I'm not telling any of you to follow me, but it is, definitely is, my best decision of life.) 3.5hours coach to the Airport, 12hours flight, 2hours transit at Singapore, another 9hours flight until Sydney. Absolutely tough. But I know it’s going to be worth it. It had been my wish since high school, to visit my long-distance boyfriend. Back in my high school, I had always thought, as long as it’s accessible by the any vehicle, and I have the time, I won't let distance be the hindrance. But, I didn’t have the chance. 30hours of travel? I’m willing to do it every month if I can, and I still feel the same now. Here it is, I know, I am going to make it happen. And that’s how it happened.
However, unluckily, we experienced our biggest quarrel two months before our Sydney plan. Break up seemed so close that it was to kick in any moment. I could still recall that two months when tears accompanied me to bed every night. My eye corners were so dry that they broke out. I had never felt that hard to hold on to a relationship. I was still struggling whether to board the plane two days before the journey. I was so scared that I would be flying just to face my break up. But I flew, at last. It’s the sweetest sweetest 3-weeks 24/7 in my entire life. Thinking back now, I’m glad that I did fly, otherwise, we knew, we would have broken up already. Tbh, it’s just cuddling to bed, waking up next to your loved ones, kissing Z to wake up (me the early waker), Z pretending to sleep still, playing with bubbles when we brush our teeth, sharing breakfast on our train to uni, drawing in Z’s lecture handouts, heading home together. Nothing fansy, yet nothing can be simpler and sweeter. (I still smile when I type this)
Here I am again, on this land of Oceania! Again, secretly. It may be our last chance, before our graduations. Separation has never been easier even though it has been very frequent. A hug is desperately needed now. Z had once said, whereever I am, it’ll be your home, Home soon now, real soon. See you in a bit.
Sorry it’s very long but I have always wanted to record all these. I’ll update you guys about my Sydney life! Follow us here or on my instagram @chowheiwaic!
