"For years, I had a crush with Samuel. Since I was still in high school, I remembered seeing him during one of the best moments of my sister's wedding. I saw him wearing a white T-shirt and just a simple outfit, yet a very entertaining person. I don't know what is the reason, but surely I know that I had a crush on that person."

My name is Dell, and I like to do like what other girls do, I have a secret. I was being a secret admire to Samuel for a long time. We were best friends since we're kids. Have you ever felt your heartbeat beating as the person you like gets near to you? I have. Often. Fortunately, at that time, no one knew what is my secret.

The secret, it just between me and my close best friend.

But, just a few weeks later, my secret was exposed by my best friend. I don't know how the stories spreading so fast. But, it was embarrassing. Luckily, they don't know who that person I was in a crush in.

My best-friend, Olla, that spread my secret told me that I should confess to that person. But, I was so scared he will reject me, and I am not ready for that. But, I gather myself and gain the courage to somehow confess to him. I was planning to tell him, face-to-face during recess at school. But, it is so embarrassing. When I was about to tell him, his friends came and surprise him, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"

Oh, I didn't know that it is his birthday. This is so embarrassing.

Fast forward. After several months.

On Christmas, 25th December 2010, I came up with a plan to give him a present. I texted him, Let's meet after this. There's it. I finally, had the courage to tell him. I gave him a small notebook. I was nervous to see him read it. At first, he read it out loud, I was covering my face because it was so embarrassing. But, soon, the sound of him getting slow and then, muted. Then, he sat and smiled.

He then continues to read,

"It's Christmas, and soon we will enter a new year. Thank you for being my friends all this year and the year before this. But, before that, I wanted to tell you about something. In the last session of our school, I wanted to tell you about something, but, it does not go well. I didn't know that was your birthday.  But today, I had a chance. Dear Samuel, I like you. I like you more than a best friend. It's been a while I had a crush on you. There, I said it."

Then, he closed the notebook. And he said the last word out loud, "Let's start date!" I burst into a laugh. 

Then, he stands up and smiles while looking at me. 

"Thank you, Dell. Merry Christmas. I had a confession too." 

"What?" I said.

"I like you too, silly." He said. Then both of us burst into a laugh.

We started to date.

Years pass by years, and we had our conflicts, ups, and downs, disagreement, and all of the sort things couples do. But, all of that, we manage to stay together until now.

After so long, people asked me, what is the reason I choose Samuel?

Then I respond with;

"I can give so many reasons why I choose him, though he always makes fun of me and we fight sometimes. He's clumsy and no sense of fashion. But, Duh, he is still my favorites, I don't know what is the reason, but I think I learn to see the perfect thing in that imperfect person."

Happy Valentine's day.

See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life. I know, the things that we usually do as a routine in our daily life suddenly changed because of some deadly virus. We started our year in a grievous state, some families are losing family members, some were stuck in the cities, at school, or in other countries because of this pandemic. In spite of what happening for almost two or maybe more, or a year, we don't even know when this will end, I hope that everyone will get through to this. Stay safe.
