Running through the grassy plain
While hungry one is in constant pain.
Sun shines providing a beautiful sheen.
The beast’s body coiled like a spring.
Claws have no need to be shown.
The prey lets out a fearful groan.
Chase begins, it moves quite fast.
Will the beast’s hunger always last?
Straight dash for a thousand feet.
Will the prey and death ever meet?
One false turn and the beast slips.
The prey escapes, it’s time to quit.
Hungry but in a dry safe place.
The chase will begin another day.
Woah. Two years.
Sounds like a long time.It is a long time. But I don’t know why, it doesn’t feel like a long time. Time doesn’t exist or really matter when I am with him.
Two years ago, on the 29th of this month, a much younger, braces-clad me was asked out by my current boyfriend. We both have grown so much since that day and learned so much about each other. Tomorrow, 24 hours from today, we will be hitting our 2 year milestone.
This is a big deal; neither one of us have been in a relationship this long and with the impending graduation coming closer each day, I want to make sure that tomorrow will be a special day, a memorable day that he can look back on after he walks the cobblestone stage.
I plan on making him a scavenger hunt. A series of six clues that lead him to me. I will tell him that I can’t see him because I am busy studying for the upcoming AP’s and that I am so sorry that I can’t see him on our anniversary. Then, his friends will make sure he doesn’t eat dinner or leave the vicinity of his room. He will find his first clue which will come with a rice krispies treat that I made in the shape of a letter. After finding all the clues, the rice krispies will reveal my location and he will meet me there to find a dinner made from scratch!
It’s not much, just a few pieces of paper and time spent putting a few ingredients together. But they say that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If he likes it, then that’ll be the best thing!
