It’s a cold and rainy 2018 Valentine’s day. Sergio has to work so we agreed to celebrate the weekend after. Because of this I made plans with my friends to get ready together and then go to dinner.
I show up at my friend’s place and start doing my makeup. Around the time that I start contouring and baking my face I notice that my friend leaves the room. I don’t think too much about it and continue doing my makeup. Minutes later my friends returns, but this time not by herself. Seconds after my friend enters the room I hear a familiar voice saying, “is Karen here?” I turn around and my mouth drops. My eyes are stuck on his. Sergio has a cowboy outfit on and was holding a beautiful bouquet of roses and a life-sized pink pony in his arms. I’m awe and disbelief that Sergio had driven 8 hours to visit me, I run up to him to embrace his warm body. A rush of unexplainable happiness runs through my body. Moments later we look into each other’s eyes and say, “I love you.” I had never felt so much joy in my life.
