I’m keeping you a secret for as long as I can

I don’t want to show you off for the whole world to know that I am secretly seeing you but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel the same way towards you.

We are at the point between dating and hanging out and I believe that we can keep each other secret for as long as we can. What we have right now is for us to understand and I believe that’s what matters. We don’t need validations from people who don’t even have any idea about how we came up to this. I can’t even figure out myself how we came right where we are now – so sudden, like whirlwind romance, the kind of love that made people sweep them off their feet.

For now let us enjoy this quiet space between the two of us. Let us talk about how you mustered the courage to talk to me, and how everything follows after that night in that coffee shop. Let us talk about our awkward talks to our planned travels. Tell me about ships and seas and I’ll tell you how my heart went premature ventricular contraction with your haircut and white uniform. Let’s wander to places we are unfamiliar with and just laugh at the thought of getting lost together.

Let us not tell the world what’s going on between us. Let them read between lines and never reveal about us. Let them wonder why I let someone fetch me at midnight and bring my loads of stuff. Let them guess your name and what’s really going on between us because honestly, we don’t know either.

We are at the point between dating and hanging out and I believe that we can keep each other a secret for a very long time. I believe there is a right time for everything. Let us pursue our dreams together and I couldn’t be more excited than seeing you navigating while I am dressed in my laboratory coat. Because again, what’s going on between us is for us to understand that what we had is not just merely dating – we are waiting for the right time, and that’s more than just hanging out.
