Why Did You Choose Me?

We were lying in bed, reading quietly. We probably looked like one of those boring old couples in a family-oriented film.Very un-hot.

"Why did you choose me?" my husband asked out of the blue.

"Ha? Whatever do you mean?" I answered, not really comprehending the context of the question. And yes, I hate that I can't get rid of that annoying 'Ha?' whenever I get surprised with a pop quiz.

"Well I'm not really the usual type you go for, and yet here we are."

Usual type? He must be referring to the likes of Won Bin, Takeshi Kaneshiro and other celebrities that I swoon over. But who doesn't, right?

"Besides, I'm not the affectionate type that clingy people like you look for," he continued as he chuckled. Clingy? He just had to slip that in.

"You could have chosen someone else. One who probably deserves you better," he finished.

I didn't know where he was headed with this. I wanted to say he's got it the other way around, but I'm usually not good at picking the right things to say. And he may think he is not a Won Bin, when for me, Won Bin could never be who he is to me.

I kept quiet and thought about what he just said. Do we really choose the ones we love? We may screen those we let into our lives, but do we have the same liberty with who we let into our hearts?

I took his hand, and my head found its usual spot on the crook of his shoulder. And beyond the silence, with my head and heart cradled where they have always fit perfectly, he understood everything that I wanted to say.

That last paragraph cut right through. I, too often find my words to be disarming. It's these little moments that define us. Cheers to you and your love! :)

being loved and in love can never be defined. as to who we love and who loves us can never be questioned. we always have our "wish to be bf/gf" but we always fall into someone out of that and no definition...

yeah! cheers to you and your love! :-)

Ako kras ko si Wu Chun. :)

Masarap mag-usap kapag tingin, sulyap, haplos at akap lang ang gagawin mo.

I can stay all day long in bed, staring at each other, in a cold room, holding hands, cuddling like you just don't wanna let go...

for somebody good with words when written, i'm a bit shocked why you became speechless.. but actions do speak better when expressed. Nice one, Sean! ^_^

@citybuoy: yeah, i'm not really good at expressing what i feel clearly or in the most appropriate manner. Good things he knows me well enough to read me. Thanks nyl!

@jj roa rodriguez: i agree with you jj. if i put all my exes side by side, the biggest commonality that they have is basically me. thanks jj!

@zaizai: ay hahaha! ang guwapo naman kasi ni won bin di ba? medyo nagiging mature na siya ngayon, pero love ko pa rin siya. hahaha!

@egg: thanks eg. baka siya, kaso di ako nakakapanood nun dito. baka iba yung Chinese name na ibinigay sa kaniya sa Chinese version dito haha!

@leo: hahaha! i had to google him and may hawig siya kay nimmy ha. kaya mo siguro siya natipuhan hehe. hay totoo yan. i have to wake up earlier than my partner and ayoko talaga siyang iwan sa umaga.
