It's been a whole year for
and I. YEp! Today is our 1 year anniversary. :heat: A year ago on this day Rurik asked me out and I said yes. I remember it like yesterday to be honest. He had posted a journal about facts and one of the ten wee "I currently have my eyes set on someone". I thought it was someone else, I had no idea it would be me. Well it was.
Rurik and I met through 80points. I was so happy to recieve them! It made my whole wee, cause I wasn't that well known on DA, so to get such a thing was amazing! We started chatting after that. We spoke about Star Wars, something I was really into at that time then I opened up commissions.
Rurik was my first commissioner I believe.[link]
After that, I had some problems hit me me head on. My mom had fallen very ill and could no longer take care of me and I was forced to leave my mother and my best friend to go live in NY with my abusive Father who I fled from when I was 14. I live with my father still, but I am living in my old home in PA. A home I lived in when I was very little.
I posted a journal on the problem and Rurik noted me his cell phone number. I cried that day. A online friend, someone who could be considered a total stranger offered to help. Some would look at the note as being creepy, but I just got this feeling that he was not a creeper and had very good intentions. The moment I got my phone his number was the first to go in and I started texting him. We then spoke...I remember that very well to. The first thing we spoke about was that Rurik saw a little child texting some vulgar things and we bashed the younger generation.
We still do that here and there. I also know I was at my step grandparents house. Yep, my father had remarried...and she's not the nicest woman either.
I remember how upset I was at one point when I was at my (blood) Grandmothers house(i hate her) and I had forgotten my phone charger so I could not talk to my mom or Rurik. I texted him a bit and that was it. I was really upset,
I left my home in FL to be with family that I had tried to get away from. I had nobody but my art. Rurik was there though. He was always there. He always listened to me. He was my first friend I had really when moving.
One night I was in PA in my older sister's room. She is in FL taking care of my mom. I sat on my sis's bed and pulled my cell out and flipped through my contacts. Rurik's name was highlighted and i got this horrible feeling. Like something was wrong, like something was gonna happen if I didn't call him. I then remembered I hadn't spoken to the man all day. So...I called him up. He picked up and I was able to tell immediately something was wrong. He wanted to end his life and I talked him out of it. I spent two hours with him, helping him through it. He pulled himself out and a few days later he posted the 10 facts journal.
I called him up pestering him wanting to know who the lucky girl was. I remember thinking after reading the journal: "good, a girlfriend will do him good.". But I was also hurt and I had no idea why until he finally told me who it was he had a crush on. I truly believed it wasn't me, but it was and now then I realized that I loved him and BAM! Here we are a year later.
Rurik, love, thank you. Thank you for being there, thank you for putting up with me and my moods. Thank you for loving me when none did.
