Fuck it Avri; Just Jump...

What harm could possibly come from going?!  A bitch just hates to be in a compromising position...I had so much swimming around in my head, I knew I needed a little headway before I could make ANY decisions.  That meant having another tooth-pulling conversation with Landon.  I knew what I felt, but I also knew that I was embarking on a whole new life course; a boyfriend was nowhere in that equation.  I liked that we didn't need labels to feel connected with one another, and would define what we had at a point in time when we were both ready.  In the back of my mind, the comment about Tre was still rattling around, and so I knew it would not be okay to pursue this any further and not say anything.  Big Girl Boots Avri; "It's About to Go Down!"...

Something that always happens to me whenever Landon and I are face to face is that I get kinda nervous when something is on my mind, and I'm at a loss for words.  No matter how organized my thoughts are prior to, it never comes out that way.  I sat next to him, trying to find the right words to communicate exactly what was on my heart.  I wanted to tell him that the Landon and Avri that was so dope was being transformed into something basic and stupid; that we weren't everyone else, and should stop pretending like we were.  We function and we work because are You and I; and nobody else.  We don't deny our feelings or their intensity; most importantly, we don't play games.  How we operate is unique and special, and were absolutely fine the way we were; moving at the pace we set...until you starting thinking and fucking shit up.  That's what I wanted to say; God only knows what actually came out...

One thing is for certain, it damn sure wasn't that; the invitation from Tre managed to be overlooked too.  I never mentioned it.  I was hoping after we spoke, I would be less confused, but no luck.   I hope I was at least able to get my point across, even if it was the most inarticulate thing I ever said.  I did walk away from the conversation with a  sense of relief, which meant I must have gotten out at least 1 thing I wanted to say.  That afternoon, I told Tre we could meet that night to have dinner, and we would discuss the potential of spending Sunday together.  He was more than happy to oblige; even coming all the way to Richmond to pick me up.  I had none of the same reservations with Tre, so I was able to jump right in...I was honest, right up front, letting him know I did not previously think of him that way, which is why I was so apprehensive.  It wasn't until the last couple of weeks of us spending so much time together that I really even saw him as a guy(no homo!).  I explained that I am incredibly guarded because I'm extremely sensitive and don't like to be hurt.  "I admire you candidness and willingness to still come at me the way you did," I said,"knowing full well what my situation was.  For that reason, I WILL spend all of Sunday with you; just be careful what you wish for!"

There, I said it.  It was out; I agreed, and I was going.  The backs of my ears started to tingle; I  was actually excited...for a few moments until anxiety kicked in--I'm going to be alone with Tre ALL DAY...Oh shit!  This is the 1st time I had actually been to his apartment.  Oh well, no turning back now!  "Stop acting like this man is going to eat you(what if he tries!lol)" I thought.  I reassured myself in my head.  "There hasn't even been an inappropriate word between us; it's not a stranger; CHILL!"  After a few deep breaths, I was calm, and could finally think about something important--like what to wear...

Flash Forward: The Twin Flame Connection

              One of the things I get the most comments on when it comes to Avri James and Landon is about the Twin Flame Connection, what are my thoughts on it, and most importantly, do I believe in it.  Most of you guys out there want to know whether or not I consider what Avri and Landon have a TFC, and WHEN would it come into play in their story...Ask and ye shall receive!  By request, an anecdote from Avri and Landon that addresses just that; I hope it provides the strength needed to hold out for it ALL... There was ONE time, when I could no longer deny the TFC; and I knew for sure it was real...I lived out of state for a while and had been seeing someone else.  Landon and I hadn't seen each other for a time, and had been living separate lives.  I had been coming and going, but ours paths just never seemed to cross.  One day, my family attended this baby shower.  I chose not to, as I didn't know the intended at all.  After it was over, my aunt stopped by, giving me a rundo

Great Expectations

              I couldn't believe it; it was FINALLY here!!  This trip had been at the forefront of all my thoughts for the past few weeks-now that it was actually time to leave it all felt surreal.  It honestly felt a little strange to be this excited about going on a trip I had originally planned and discussed so many times before with Landon.  In all actuality, I never thought I would get the chance to go.  I just figured the Universe would open up and swallow me, and I would never make it!  The strangest part of all though, was that it didn't even bother me, which caused me to feel slightly uneasy, just for a few moments; old habits die hard.  For once, I felt like I was doing something for ME.  My greatest desire for the whole thing was to find out what parts of Avri still remained; to remember who the fuck I was.  I had felt so lost and disconnected lately- an Avri identity crisis, if you will... See, that's the part I find the hardest to wrap my mind around; how impor

One Day You'll Be Mine...

I've never been one to particularly enjoy being stuck in a place with a bunch of random individuals, ergo I don't really party...but every now and again, I do like to get dressed up and hit the streets for a while.  Since my 18th birthday, I  hadn't gone out while on Richmond.  Tai and I had talked about it, but never made any real plans.  Something must have been in the air, because we both became increasingly restless, and finally decided it was time to break out.  We chose the particular spot based on the day; I mean, because what's the point if you aren't going to be seen, right?! By this point, all of my evenings were all but monopolized by Landon, rarely spending one apart.  I expected some phony resistance, but knew no real issue would come into play.  I didn't really know for sure what he felt for me yet, but I DID know that there was SOMETHING...The real test in any new relationship is your 1st evening apart; how your significant othe
