Meeting My Old Neighbor

It’s been over 2 years since I bought a house. I used to live in the same apartment complex for about 8 years. I made a lot of friends there, especially old ladies loved me. I am talking about grandmothers in their 70’s and 80’s.

Today, I was on a first date with a girl I met online.

After an early sushi dinner, I took her to my old neighborhood and told her my city’s history.  I study local history, you see.  The ex-mayor of my city calls me the "city historian". I took her to a park that’s used to be a cemetery.  I gave her a guide on surrounding landmarks. The Sun was about to set. The air was getting cold and crisp.

Then I saw my old neighbor, an old lady, walking her dog (white dog in the video, one who knocked me on my butt)  This video was shot 2011.

She is well over 80 years old.  She suffered some major illness.  I haven’t seen her for over 2 years.  I used to talk to her and play with her dog.  I think about her sometime… I thought I would never see her again. 

I got out of my car and ran to her.

We didn’t say anything.  We just hugged each other.  And we didn’t let go for about a minute.  And we cried… and cried…

I was so glad to see her.  

We set on the park bench and talked some more… and I was keep crying. I was so happy to see her.  We held hands and gave each other hugs as we were talking. 

I told her that I loved her.  It was the first time telling her that I loved her.  "I love you.  I always have", she replied. It was getting dark, and I had to let her go.  She walked away slowly with her dog as the Sun set.

Oh, the girl… she ended up staying over night at my house, but that’s another soty.  Nothing happened, really. I don’t do casual sex.
