Title: Count to 60


Noah: Count to 60 for me. Can you do that?
Me: ...Yeah.
Noah: Well then talk to you in a minute then.

1...
My breathing instantly becomes more sporatic.

2...
What was I going to say?

3...
What was HE going to say?

4...
My hands start shaking

5...
Time seems to tick so slowly

6...
And yet so fast

7...
I'm already anxious

8...
And yet am dreading the moment

9...

10...
I try, and fail, to slow my racing heart

11...
Breath seems to leave as fast as I get it

12...

13...

14...
I start counting along as my breathing quickens even more

15...

16...

17...
I wonder if he's as scared as I am?

18...

19...
Another quick breath as I start shaking again

20...

21...

22...
I'm shaking even harder now

23...

24...

25...
Still shaking

26...

27...

28...
Why can't I stop shaking?!

29...

30...
Half way there now...

31...
Is the wait killing him too?

32...

33...
I wonder what his voice sounds like?

34...
What if I sound stupid?

35...

36...
I'm shaking even harder now, if that's possible

37...

38...
What if...

39...
I forget what to say?

40...

41...
I can't

42...
Can I?

43...

44...
I feel like i'm going to pass out.

45...

46...
The world is spinning

47...

48...
We're almost there

49...
I take the phone from the charger

50...
I press it to my chest.

51...
Oh my god I'm so scared...

52...
Eight seconds now...

53...
Should I start counting down?

54...
Even my fingers are shaking

55...
My eyes dart to his number

56...
Four seconds

57...
Three

58...
Two and I start to dial

59...
One and I finish the sequence of numbers

60...
I press call

Two rings before someone picks up

"He-hello?"


So, let me sum it up for you, my lovelies. Noah and I have been in a long-distance relationship for a while now, and yesterday was the first time I EVER got to hear his voice. It's amazing... *closes eyes wistfully*

Anyway, this was the 60 seconds prior to our phone call. R&R!
