Ever since we met, Y and I have spent every single day together. It’s hard not to when you sit right next to each other in the office. This doesn’t mean that there weren’t times when we were apart, but it was always only for so long.
There was one time when Y had to go to Beijing for 3 days to apply for the visa that would allow him to go to Austria for our wedding.
And then there was one time when I stayed in Austria for a week longer than he did in order to get our wedding certificate legalized for China. When I arrive at the train station in Northeast China’s Siping in Jilin province after a week of being apart, his whole family picks me up. I’m five hours late because my flight hasn’t been running on time and I couldn’t catch a fast train.
It’s been a long day, but when we finally lie in bed at 3 in the morning, I can’t sleep. I tell Y and he says: “I can’t sleep either, I’m too excited”.
Too excited to have me back?
Have you ever had a similar experience? I’d love to read your stories.
