My Twin Flame Romance — Part 29
If you haven’t read Part One, I suggest you do that now. There’s some important disclaimers in there I just don’t feel like repeating — so check it out and come back here when you’re done. Kthx.
The dreams and circumstances all aligned; it was finally time for me to look for Erik again, just to see…
I was hemming and hawing over it for awhile, but a good friend of mine decided to spring into action and scour the interwebs. We’ll call her Crystal, because she’s a gem. ;)
(She had met Erik when we were younger and always thought we were a good match; not that she wanted to get between Sean and I, but, well, she was pretty curious, too!)
Just after my January mourning phase, she texted me a picture she found. ‘That’s him, right?’
A Tsunami Of Thoughts And Feelings Arose
The first image, I honestly couldn’t tell. I thought… well, maybe it could be him. I guess…
It wasn’t. But so much time had passed, it got me wondering if I would even recognize him anymore. I mean, it had been just under 14 years! We were coming up on 33 by now. How had life changed him?
Surely life had changed me, too. Everyone says I look exactly the same as I did in high school (even now, which is strange at 40). But beyond that… well, all that potential I had was certainly beginning to sour.
I was a homemaker at best, a failed and lazy entrepreneur at worst. Why would he even want to see me again?
But there was no time to let that stop me anymore. The pull, the dreams, and my closest friends were all far too interested to see how this panned out to let me give up. The tsunami had already brewed; it was inevitable.
That same night, not ten minutes later, Crystal sent me another pic. That’s gotta be him!
Sure enough. That was Erik’s face alright, looking exactly as it had the last time I saw him.
