I got a text from Liz yesterday, to tell my little sister Happy Birthday. Is that weird? I mean I will say she and my sister had a connection, even after I started dating Hannah my sister would randomly ask about Liz, or say she missed her.
It's still weird for me, the last time I heard from her was right before I got her wedding announcement, I really never expected to see her name on my phone again, but there it was. Just like every other time I've spoken to Liz since the break it totally ruined my day, since it was after all of the college games were over there was really no chance of recovery until I woke up this morning.
Inevitably a short conversation was stuck, the point when she asked me when Hannah came home was like a twist of a knife. The one girl so far who "got away" who's now happily married, blatantly pointing out how I'm alone. Luckily last night was Saturday night, which means I finished the day writing Hannah. It was good, it motivated me to write more than usual, which I'm sure Hannah will appreciate.
Liz was also the second person this week to one way or another ask about the prospects of Hannah and I getting married when she gets home, Hannah's mother being the first. Sometimes I feel like people who ask expect me to respond, "Yeah, and here's the ring!" I won't be unrealistic, the prospects are good, if Hannah eventually returns to normal that is.
