This is a continuation of my previous posts. Please read the previous posts here.
I was so excited and happy with the news of AS’s visa that I started counting days to his arrival. Our family and friends were very happy for us as well as they knew how much we missed each other.
I was already dreaming what I was going to do when he got here. I would love to get our own place and start our new life together.
But things were not meant to go according to plan and here is how one of our conversations went.
Me: (All excited) I am so happy baby.
AS: I know and me too.
Me: So when are you going to book the ticket.
AS: I talked to my work and they have asked me to work till the end of the month.
Me: But that is 3 weeks away.
AS: I know but I have to stay so they can give me a good recommendation for the future. I can’t just pack and leave.
Me: Can’t they let you go before that? Come on I have been waiting for so long and I can’t wait any longer.
AS: Come on baby, I know you want me there and I want me there too but I have to finish my obligations here before I leave.
Me: I am sure you can work it out.
AS: I have talked to my boss and this is the best option.
Me: Then I am not happy 😦
AS: Come on dear, just few weeks more and I will be there.
Me: I have been patient for so long and you still want me to wait for a whole month, I can’t.
AS: Listen to me please, we will be fine. Now you know I am coming, start planning what to do when I get there. Then the time will pass quickly.
Me: No, I want you here next week.
AS: You know that it is not possible.
Me: Then make it happen.
AS tried his best to calm me down and finally I gave in. OK so he was coming finally and I could wait a few more weeks.
Then after a few days I had the following talk with him.
Me: Hey when are you planning to book the ticket?
AS: Soon. Once everything is sorted out here, I need to go to Kathmandu and then I will come to Sydney.
Me: I didn’t realise that you are going to Kathmandu too.
AS: I have to see my family and sort everything and I will be there soon baby. Just count the days.
Me: I am sure you are not going to Kathmandu just for a few days so tell me what date you plan to be here.
AS: You are not angry with me.
Me: Me being angry is not going to solve the problem so tell me the date so I know for sure how long it’s going to be. (I was trying to be an understanding girlfriend and I did want him to spend some time with his family but at the same time it was getting harder for me. It had been 4 months since I saw him last)
AS: I am thinking end of September or early October
Me: OK that’s cool.
We talked everyday as he finalised his life in India and pack his bags to come to Sydney. I knew it was a big move for him as he was leaving everything he knew behind for me and I wanted to make the transition as smooth as possible.
I was doing my best to give him all the information about here so he wouldn’t get a shock when he comes here.
Then while we were talking one day, we came up with a brilliant plan. As he couldn’t come to Sydney so soon so I decided to go and meet him in India for few weeks. I had some holiday accumulated and I had never been to Bangalore before so it was the perfect excuse. I had been to many parts of India before so I kind of knew what to expect but at the same time Bangalore seemed more exciting as AS was there.
As we talked more AS was able to take his last week off from work, so that was when I decided to fly. The way it planned out was, I would fly from Sydney to spend some time with him for 2 weeks and after that, he would go to Nepal. He would spend a few weeks there with his family and would the fly to Sydney.
It looked like a perfect plan and I would be able to bring some stuff of his with me too.
I was really excited when we made the plan and immediately booked the ticket and looked forward for my next holiday with AS.
Next post will be my trip to Bangalore and surroundings. Again, there will be the airport and a holiday.
As I mentioned before, our love story will not be complete without airports :).
Until the next post take care,
