Fast forward to after I drop them home —> (Trung, Alfred, and Jonathan came to my house by this time)

It was time to start the endless nite… making all the gifts for the Meikai students we knew. Early in the morning, Alfred and me stopped by Publix to get stuff to make sandwiches and cards for all the students and even earlier, I grabbed a big bag of sand from Clearwater Beach. We decided to fill jars w/ the sand so that they could take a piece of my hometown with them back to Japan (sounds kewl, rite!?). Jonathan decided to compile a DVD w/ a movie he was making and most of the pics that I took during my time w/ them. It took us most of the nite, but we finally finished filling out all the cards, making the DVD and sand jars around 7:45am.

Goodbye days…

I woke up, just like any other day. She had already woken up earlier and was on her laptop, looking at the latest recipe. I try to get outta bed, but to no avail… I was too lazy. She comes into the room and says, “Good morning, honey!” with a golden smile on her face. I give her three kisses, cuz we always kiss three times, and say, “Good morning!”
We sat down next to each other, holding hands. I stared into her eyes as she did with mine, hoping that she would find the love that was inside of me. And we just sat there, taking the tranquil atmosphere in. Without a care in the world, I wished it would never end.
We were walking towards the gate. I grabbed her hand to swing her around and hug her. We embraced and held onto each other like our lives depended on it. “You know that I love you, right?” I said with tears leaking out of my eyes. “Of course I do” she says back. “I knew this day would eventually come, but I didn’t want it to…” “Don’t worry, honey. I’ll see ya later.” She says to me as she lets go to wipe away my tears. With these parting words, she walks into the gate with a smile on her face and no regret in sight.

Some things we take for granted without fully realizing it until it’s suddenly gone. There are few regrets that I have in my life and letting her leave could might as well be one of them. My life now has a huge gap in it, with nothing to fill the cavity. Not sure where to go or what to do from now on, I journey on. Hopefully, our paths will cross again…I miss you, Minju. Saranghae!
