She kissed my neck. That really gave me a real goose bump. I looked at her and smile.
“Oh! Page 117” she uttered softly to my ear referring to the book that I was reading for the whole day – Twilight.
I kissed her on her lips. A sweet one. It was sweet enough to make her smile and close her eyes tight.
“Are you alright?” I asked her to make sure everything is ok while pinching softly her cute blushed cheek. After few years with Biotherm and Clarin I suppose. They really gave her great skin. Smooth and silky. Shiny and always look healthy. I always brag about it to myself. Why not?
“I’m pretty bored sweetheart; can we go to the mall? I heard they have great sales. Window shopping is good too” she asked me persuasively.
“Ok, let’s go!” I said to her and lifted her up to the shower. Since I know Kath, we never shower alone. I’ll be missing her even a few minutes she vanishes from my eyes. It’s true. Very true.
We took a quick shower and got ready with t-shirt and shorts. Wore the sandals and out of the house. She ran to water the plant while I started to start the engine. Yes, she loved her plants so much. Nature lover I’d say. I’m not a good gardener but I want to grow the plants together with her as much as I want to grow old with her. Forever. That’s my promise.
In the car, she kept talking to me in Mandarin which I didn’t understand a word. I lied, I knew few words. Very basic words as I took Mandarin class before. That was ages. She tried to teach me and I tried to catch up some new words as possible.
“Ni xiang chi shen me?” she asked.
I answered “Wo xiang chi ni”. We both laughed our lungs out.
It’s good for my future and I want to make her happy at the same time. I guess it’s good because I can speak in Mandarin when I meet her parent or sibling and definitely will make them impress. They will like me as a bonus. I want that. As much as my family can accept her, I want her family to accept me too. I want to prove to them that I can make her happy and live with her forever. I must.
“Do you think you can learn it fast?” she asked.
Before I could even say a word she replied “Suppose”.
And we laughed. That’s my favorite word. She knew I’d answer that way. She even felt annoyed sometimes with that word.
Now, actually I got a good book for learning Mandarin. I made a photostat copy from a book that I borrowed from my colleague.
For you, I will learn whatever you want. Whatever that could make you happy. I love you.
