Today marks the first year of the marital journey with Evil Senpai and myself as one united being. Yes, we made one year together without any significant change in our personalities, with him being even more evil and me, being the victim of his evildom. Nevertheless, while we lived in perfect harmony, there were outside forces that caused some spiral of disarray in our well organised lives of sleeping, working, pumping, cooking, reading manga, watching anime, movies and Korean dramas, with the occasional going out for a bite to eat. Not to mention sleeping again since we seem to not get enough of it.
Anyway, the journey towards the marriage was a challenge and I had to pray long and hard everyday to ensure that miserable Adande was the one for me. But how did we come this far? Well, it all began one evening, when his brother whom I knew, asked if I wanted to go to the movies. I obliged seeing as I spent my weekend swimming in deep oceans of school work and a little entertainment would do me well. When he arrived, he was not alone. The brother that he always kept harping on about was in the car with him and I was introduced to my future husband.
So different were the two brothers, I wondered if they were really related. Eventually, I would see how deep their evil bond was despite their differences. Anyway, my wonderful future husband, hardly said two words during the time that we three spent together that night but his silence intrigued me. I ended up asking his brother how was he doing and his brother gave me his number and told me to ask him myself. Good grief! I thought. But I took it and asked him and from then we started chatting. The more we chatted, the more I grew fond of him. Adande was so unlike his brother it was amazing! He was so kind and gentle :'( :'( and seemed so genuine. I eventually realised that I really liked the bugger and it began consuming my entire being that I decided that I should tell him. So, one night, while chatting, and before I went to sleep, I decided to let him know how I felt via a message since saying it was asking too much. The response I received after pouring out my innermost feelings, I shall never forget it until the end of time. He said, “You don’t know me well enough to come to that conclusion.” I was horrified and felt as if I was a character from a shoujo manga walking around in real life. It was followed by the enigmatic climax, “I will see you in the morning.” And that was it.
And he came in the morning and met me to drop me off to work and I felt uncomfortable in the car because the bugger wasn’t saying a word, just drinking his water lazily while driving and not looking at me. I had no idea what was going through that fluffy head of his and it was driving me crazy! When we get to my workplace, he told me to call him when I was ready to leave and he would pick me up. Still confused as he still did not give any admission of feelings, I went to work and could not function to my fullest potential. The hours were moving very slowly. When evening came and I called, he came. He took me home and said that we would go out that evening. So I got ready and then we went to his place and I stayed in the car while he went to get ready. We then went to Häagen Dazs and I ordered ice cream while he just sipped languidly on a hot chocolate, saying nothing whilst looking at me eating my ice cream through the rims of his glasses. Again I was uncomfortable. Afterwards, we took a walk around the mall area and it was while walking back to the car that the bugger pulled me close to him and wrapped his arm around my waist and we walked together. Hallelujah! It was the first sign of some sort of reciprocation of feelings and I felt a huge wave of relief wash all over me.
And that was the beginning of the journey that united our souls on the 30th day of October 2014 :).
