After doing the meme yesterday, I suddenly remembered something else that happened while hubby and I were apart for 4 months after our wedding and honeymoon.
Let me give you a short timeline:
March 2004 - We met for the first time and we were together for 2 weeks.
October/November 2006 - He came to Indonesia to marry me on November 3rd. He stayed in Indo for about 3 weeks.
March 2007 - I moved to Finland.
Our wedding night felt...surreal in a way. After he helped me take over 50 pins off my hair, I thought to myself, "Now we're really husband and wife? Now we can make love? Really?" It just felt strange, especially since we had been apart for 2 years and 7 months prior to our wedding night. Our first love-making was funny and also sweet he he he he he...It was so hard to "do it", so to speak HI HI HI HI HI HI...but we managed to do it in the end after a few laughs! LOL!!!
Now I get sidetracked. After he got back home to Finland, we resorted back to chatting and calling each other up. Since it was SO hellish for us to be apart, I decided to say, "I love you" over and over and over again right when he picked up the phone to cheer him up. I was already smiling even before I dialed his number, thinking that he would laugh...
You know what happened when I kept on saying "I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you..." right after he picked up the phone?
Silence. Total silence.
I was confused. I stopped saying the words and I said, "Hello? Are you still there?"
I heard a very small voice, choked in tears, "Yeeessss...?"
Dear Lord!!! I made him CRYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to hold him right then and there and tell him that everything would be okay, but I couldn't. I wanted to cry so hard, but I was afraid it'd make him even sadder. After all, you'll feel sadder when your loved one is sad, right? So I tried to be strong and I let him calm down while I babbled to calm him down so that he didn't have to speak since I knew he couldn't speak yet.
Ahhhhh...I never want to go through that again, even though now it's become such a TOUCHING memory. Gosh, I REALLY love that guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I'm HAPPY 'coz now I can hug him whenever I want to. YIIIPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!! ;-D
