Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder: A Narrative/Descriptive Essay

1055 words - 4 pages

The sun peaks through the cool crisp clouds as the wind blows softly on this wonderful October day. Finally, the excruciating-heart wrenching 6 weeks are over. No more feeling lonely not able to talk to the one I love, not able to hear his sweetly soothing voice. The few letters I received from him where like a glass of cool lemonade on a hot summer's day when you can feel the essence of it soothing you with every sip. The uncertainty of how he was doing or what he was doing would eat away at my stomach with every thought of wonder. I would imagine that he was right there when I wrote to him every night, reading everything I was writing which comforted me until I fell soundly asleep. As the days crept by slowly, so slowly, I would imagine seeing him as a United States Airman, not a recruit, all dressed up in his uniform. Finally, I can stop waiting and waiting, for today I will see my love and my heart will have relief.Just getting out of bed I realize that in only a few hours I will be looking at a true Airman, one who made it through boot camp alive, one who will walk anywhere with confidence knowing that he has accomplished something great. I hurriedly walk around the house with a slight skip in my step as I'm trying to get everything ready to go. My heart beats faster and faster with every tick of the clock as I continually check the time. I can hear in the background the tick-tock and it haunts me for it tells me that time is moving slowly. My mom is watching me carefully wondering how I'm going to actually act once I see Ben. She tells me to "take a breather for a minute and sit down, you have plenty of time." But I can't stop, I have to keep moving or I know time will only hold still. She rolls her eyes at me with a slight chuckle and continues on. As I'm skipping from place to place I realize how much energy I'm losing because I'm not doing anything productive. I move my purse from the couch to the table, than back to the couch while I move my shoes to the door for the third time. After my purse and shoes are in the right place it's time to go. I look at the clock one last time and take a deep breath; my heart begins to beat fast.I leap into my car with the largest smile that my lips could possibly form. As I'm driving along I get this feeling in my stomach. It's a feeling like I can't breathe and my stomach is being squeezed tightly while my heart beats wildly with my face twitching from the smiling. I see all these lights in front of me strategically placed around the road . I made it to the airport. My head gets hot as I breathe heavily. "I cannot belive I'm going to see my boyfriend!" I say under my breath. I sit there in...
