Prologue

A Chapter by LauraKate

Do you know what it means to say that someone feels like home? How about feeling this way about someone you have just met?  You know absolutely nothing about this person, not their history, their background, passions or interests, their temperaments, secrets, habits.… nothing. You have only their physical being in front of you and somehow, you feel very strongly as if a part of you that has always ached, but that you never really knew was missing, has just been found. This is how I felt when I met Max on 08th March, 2014. 

I’ll never forget the first time that I saw him, and the impression he made on me was unusually powerful, so strong that it I’m still writing about our connection three years after our breakup, if you can really call it a breakup. My relationship with Max turned my life upside down, little did I know at the time just how different things were going to become for me. 

I often ask myself if I would change things should I ever somehow have the chance to go back, knowing what I do now. When things were good, they were exciting and honestly the most fun I have ever had with anybody. I wouldn’t want to un-see the incredible places I have been to and un-meet the wonderful people I was lucky enough to chance upon, on some of my wildest adventures. When things were bad though, they were so bad that I’m not even sure my memory recalls the worst of it. 

Perhaps everything we went through was necessary in order to learn some valuable lessons. Placing all logic aside, there is just the small detail of my falling in love with a man who lived on the other side of the world. I eventually came to understand that age old saying, it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

Ah, the distance. Living on opposite sides of the world can be a dampener. When they are never there when you need them. Spending so much time apart doesn't bode well in the long term. I think of military personnel and how many of them have relationships which eventually disintegrate. You had fun, you thought you had found a soul mate, but that wasn't to be. Now all you have are memories. Sad, and you eed to grieve the loss of a relation ship before you move on. Many will relate to this situation. Enjoyed reading with my cuppa.
