I just came out from the shower when I read the 'kid's' sms. He wants me to give him a call.
And when I did I was surprised when he told me to talk to his friend.
It was a girl.
She said hi. I said hello.
"You must be Kid's guy?" she asked.
"I guess I am," I replied.
"It's nice to hear your voice," she said then she gave the phone back to the kid.
And then our relationship took another step forward. I knew him telling someone about me would be a hard thing to do. I knew it would eventually happen, and I'm fine if it takes him long so I did not expect him to do so this time. I thought he'd wait until he finishes his masters and start work, but I guess he's ready.
And so now I'm smiling. Been doing so for a few hours already.
Can't take the stupid thing off my face.
