Last night was Interesting. We did go to the MXPX concert. A group named Blenderhead was there too. Although it was a Christian place called the Vertical, a lot of weird people with weird haircuts, tattoos and body piercings were there. It wasn’t my thing, but I learned a lot. It might have been Christian music, but my spirit was not lifted up. There were moments when everyone around me was slam dancing. I would just look up and think about Emily.
Wayne spent the night last night. He and I plus Marcus and Kevin were talking about girls and how little Wayne had turned into a ladies man. Then Kevin said that I was the Lady man. He was referring to Emily. None of them know Emily like I do. All they see is her beautiful girl in the picture beside my bed. I see so much more.
I laid in my bed last night thankful and almost in tears. God knew what he was doing. He had to show me the real Emily before he would allow me to see Emily in person. There is so much I don’t know about Emily. But I do know that I want her. She is strong in who she is. We are from two different worlds.
She is sunlight.
And I moon.
Knowing who she is, she searched for another red light like her. And she found one over two years ago in a mystical land of forest-covered mountains and endlessly-giving waterfalls. She realized I was special, even when I did not.
So, this is our story.
I am sure in her own way she is writing down her part.
The rest of the world does not see us. They do not notice. They do not care.
But, to me, the rest of the world hardly exists.
There is a place called Siler City.
And there is a place called Sanford.
There is a place called Banner Elk.
And there is a place called Boone.
There is a place called Crestview.
And there is a place called Heaven.
That is all I know.
