Matters of The Heart

After my date with my crush we said our goodbyes without any promises or expectations, sometimes you have to be realistic and move on. Yesterday when I was hanging out with Angelica I couldn't stop thinking about him and Angelica was asking me if I thought he would try to contact me before I left. I did not have an answer to that but figured maybe it was for the best that we got done with our brief goodbyes. After all, I was leaving Cali in a day's time heading to another city called Popayan before heading to the border of Colombia and Ecuador to cross over.

I got home late on Friday night and since my phone had completely died on me, I immediately hooked it up to a charger and turned it on eager to see if I had any missed calls or messages. Turns out I actually did, I had several missed calls and messages from him. He had been trying to reach me because he wanted to see me before I left. He had even driven to my apartment hoping to get a hold of me since he wasn't having any luck on the phone, he lives almost an hour away. I could not believe it. His last message wished me a safe journey and expressed regret at not having seen me one last time. It had been sent half an hour prior.

I immediately called him and sent him a message but got no response. It was already midnight and I felt like time had already run out, I was going to be leaving Cali in a few hours time. I left my phone charging in my room and went to take a shower, when I got back I had three missed calls from him and a message. Talk about wrong timing! I called him back twice but got no response. I sent him a message to tell him what I had wanted to say to him over the phone...............
