We were talking about general stuff, how his holiday is going, Christmas & what each of us are doing, what time we've put aside for ourselves to spend together etc etc.
By this point I was kind if struggling to stay awake, & I know that sounds terrible but I was really tired anyway & talking to him always puts a smile on my face & makes me happy so I was well & truly mellowed out.
Obviously he noticed this so we said goodnight & for a split second he went quiet then slightly hesitantly but like it was the most normal thing in the world, said "I love you". & I said it back...
I know that doesn't sound a big deal but it is for me.
I've only said it once to somebody & got kicked in the teeth for it & I'm not one of those people that says it after going out with someone for a few weeks. It's a sentence that you actually have to mean to be able to say in my opinion.
I don't know why he chose then to say it but it was so lovely to hear. No showiness, no big deal, he just said it & the best thing is, he actually sounded like he meant it unlike the one who said it to me in the past.
You know when someone says something & you can't put your finger on why but it just sounds right? & feels right? It just does & I don't feel like I'm going to fall flat on my face, at the moment I feel that if I do fall, there will be something there to catch me. I know that sounds horrendously soft but it's true.
I'm really, really, really happy & can't wait for him to come back now.
Well, I couldn't before but especially so now. And to think I wasn't even going to text him!
