So I know you thought I forgot about our story . . .but I didn't.
After seeing Stephen for those couple days he went home to Durango and we both went about our lives. He was doing an internship with his church and I was busy in my training. Neither of us thought anything of our meeting because neither of us was allowed to be in a relationship where we were. The next week he visited again and I was cooking in the kitchen ( I always asked for kitchen duty because then I would get the afternoon free and I didn't mind waking up at 5am ; ). I smiled and hugged him and we talked on and off for the couple days he was there again. I liked him as a friend and was attracted to him because of his confidence. He was friendly and not at all flirtatious. In fact when I flirted with him (being honest) I ended up feeling silly. -- Ok I have been debating with Stephen whether to put this in or not and Stephen thinks I should and I don't :P but only because of my pride. The biggest thing that attracted me to Stephen at first was his disinterest. I was used to guys attention at that time and he really wasn't awed by me. I found it intriguing. Wow that was like pulling teeth - so I had some character flaws obviously -- We still were strictly friends. He came up often for a while sometimes bringing friends of his and sometimes bringing another brother of his. Every time he came we talked. It was almost time for me to leave for China . . .
To be continued . . . . . .
Here are some pictures of where Stephen and I met :D
