Countless disappointments had battered me down until I’d pretty much given up. Surrendered. I stood in my empty apartment and cried out to a God I didn’t believe in I give up!
And like magic, the despair and loneliness were lifted from me. I felt as though I’d set down a heavy suitcase. No longer was I driven by insatiable longing. I was almost weightless. Reborn.
I board the tram from Reykjavik with no destination in mind. I just need to get out and experience this new way of life. And this was when I see her. This vision of perfection from my dream, blue eyes and glossy brown hair. I cannot help but stare. She looks down, the smallest blush coloring her fine skin. It is charming.
I can see myself looking at this face for the rest of my life, growing older together.
I will follow her anywhere.
