When I woke up, I felt something in between contentment and happiness. I awoke with a smile on my face and enjoyed just the feeling of my body stretching. Was all this because ate right for one day!? That’s a big argument for me keeping it up! I awoke early, so I took my time about getting everything done. I left mid-morning and arrived at Frank’s house in the early afternoon.
I wasn’t sure quite how to act when he opened the door, and I could tell he felt the same way. He showed me where to put my things. I think for something to do, he took me to a sporting goods store so I could help him pick out a few hiking accessories that he wanted and then we went for our hike. We didn’t talk much. I was honestly just happy admiring the scenery, so I enjoyed myself anyway. There were other people there and most of them set a faster pace than I do. When we returned to the trail head, I sat on a rock. When I got up, I had a bad cramp in my leg that made it difficult to walk. Without so much as asking me, he just started massaging my leg. It was odd. It was like he was claiming me in front of my friends, yet he did nothing else to signify his interest. I didn’t think much about it past that since it didn’t really matter at this point anyway. I avoided looking at his eyes, so I didn’t have to see if his caring was still there or not. I knew I would react no matter what I saw in them since I do like him. It was an odd sensation to like him yet have no expectations, either of him or in the future.
When we got back, we spent most of the time just sitting on the couch and watching TV, but I didn’t mind. Honestly, he entertains people just like I do! I like to share movies that mean things to me. I would have liked to have cuddled with him, but he purposely chose another couch after I sat in the one that he had clearly occupied before I arrived. One advantage of not having any expectations was that I didn’t feel disappointment when nothing happened between us. I didn’t anticipate anything, so I didn’t mind. It was great! He made dinner which was okay. He was kind enough to adhere to my diet in his cooking, which I appreciated. We stayed up until midnight watching television (on separate couches) then I went to bed.
