Today I reconnected with a big piece of my past, my ex (the one i've been talking about for a while now). Before today we hadn't seen each other since....I don't even remember and things weren't exactly the best between us. Recently thought we had a conversation that really helped us understand where one another is coming from and prompted us to arrange for us to meet up for lunch just to see where each other was at. After several failed attempts we finally decided to do it today. I talked to my peoples about it yesterday and they just wanted to make sure that I was ready to see her face to face and that I was going in there with a clear head. Waking up this morning I was kinda anxious but at the same time I was feeling good about everything and keeping a positive mindstate. We decided to meet up at the Student Union at UMD @ around 1 because she had class before that and so I took the bus up there. I listened to music the whole ride up to silence any thoughts that I may develop if I was riding in silence and once I got there I took a deep breath and walked into the Union. She was sitting on the couches that we used to go relax on when we were still together and once we noticed each other we shared a really long hug. One of those hugs that you just hold and let the moment last. It was really nice to be able to do that with her again. We went and got some food from the food court and then just sat back at the couches and caught up. It was almost as if we had never broken up because the connection was still there and the conversation went really well. She was happy to see that I was looking well and thanked me for coming because she was worried that I wouldn't show. We joked around like we always do, laughed and reminisced on some moments that happened there. It was theraputic and nostalgiac at the same time and gave us both a degree of peace. Before we knew it her dad was there to pick her up and we had to say part ways. This time we hugged longer than the first time and I got the feeling that neither one of us wanted to let go but we knew we had to. Kinda like the story of ours lives...heh. As we walked away from each other she texted me right after and we both agreed that we should do this again sometime soon. So I headed back home with a smile on my face and a relative calm in my soul. I can finally say that I've gotten through the storm and I can continue to move forward while knowing that we will always be special to each other. I don't know what will happen between us down the line but as the song goes, "Que Sera Sera...". Until next time, Rock on from Krypton.
