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

"Amerie"

  "...So many things I'm going through, So much that I wanna do~It's starting to become so clear to me, tomorrow ain't really guaranteed~So many days I've thought of you, it's about time you knew the truth~Gotta act quickly you and I, to fall in Love so many reasons why..." I could feel the sun slipping through the downturned slats of my wooden blinds.  It crept slowly across the floor; climbing my bedspread, and finally kissing my fingers before I opened my eyes.  I smiled, thanked the Universe for Life, and rolled over, feeling around for my book.  I hadn't fully decided if I was quite ready to get up yet.  Still in mid-thought, the sound of chimes began to softly ascend; it was my phone reminding me of the day I had ahead of me.  Whelp, decision made.  I'm up.  I didn't mind too much though; today had the potential to be dope.  I love the Summer.  It's the way the air smells; IDK, it does something to me...Melanie and I had a whole day l
