My name is Sophie Morley, and this is my story of loss.
I used to be mature, professional, and stable. I used to have friends and colleagues who respected me. I used to be someone I respected. I knew the life I wanted, and I lived within my forever plans. I was everything I thought I should be.
Then I met the man of my dreams, and everything changed in me. Everything I was and everything I was to become changed with his love. And I've never regretted one single moment of the life we shared.
My name is Sophie Morley,
and I am lost.
I met Peter in Sunshine and Life.
I met Peter, and I saw the life I wanted. I saw the man I wanted and the life I dreamed of. I couldn't understand why, but I looked at a total stranger and everything stopped for me in that one moment of time.
Much later, when I would question our first meeting Peter would say it was his aura and our connection that changed me. Sometimes he said fate or kismet played a hand in our lives crossing paths. He had endless answers as to why I felt the initial strangeness when we met, but I've never known if his explanations were true.
Thinking back I would love to remember something meaningful happening or something dramatic occurring in those first moments I saw him, but there wasn't.
I had never known that inst-love crap people talk about, and honestly that isn't what happened. I didn't look at Peter and love him- I looked at Peter and I felt unsure of myself for the first time in my life.
Peter really was nothing special, but everything amazing to me as I watched him sleep.
So on impulse, I climbed up the bed slowly and quietly, and laid myself against his body. Lying on him, I just listened to him breathe for a moment before lifting to leave him. Yet as I tried to move away his arm snaked out of the sheet and he pulled me back down on him.
"I didn't mean to wake you," I whispered.
"Stay... I love you lying on me. And I'm strong enough to hold you up when you need to be held, Sophie," he whispered back as I immediately choked up.
After a few silent moments, I heard myself suddenly say, "You're going to fall in love with me," as I froze against him.
"I know," he whispered back.
And that was it. He said nothing further, and I couldn't speak.
