The next day I got an email saying:
‘Sunday is such a boring day, always the same, dim sum with mother, then watch tv. I wish you could be here with me, then I would be happy. Now that I have you, it seems like being apart is just time wasting. I miss you so much already’
And each night when we spoke the question about my return date come up again and she would ask ‘any news yet honey?’
I talked to her about a problem contract that I had to deal with back in the
But she had expectations, she thought I was moving to
And all the time I continued to feed those expectations with talk of my return.
She was patient, always very patient, saying ‘don’t push your boss, work is very important for a man’.
And as I read these emails and listened to her kind words, I began to realise that I wanted to see her too. Surely I could make it happen.
