Day 11

May 6, 2011 Today was the day!! I get to see Ben again. I was so excited to see him. Phone rings, it’s him!!
Ben: Hi beautiful. Me: Hi!
Ben: I would love to see you.
Me: wanna come over for a treatment? Ben: Sure! See you soon.
I was SO excited!! Not only is he coming over, but I get to show him my magic. I was in my second year of acupuncture school and I was also a massage therapist and reiki healer. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on him!! Both personally and professionally lol. I lived in a little 2 bedroom apartment and turned my dining room into a treatment room.
He came over and I showed him around. I put him right on the table and treated him. He π‘™π‘œπ‘£π‘’π‘‘ it!! (Can’t say he loves it now ). We hung out for a little while after until he had to go back to work.
Me: when will I see you again?
Ben: next week Me:
Hugging and kissing him. He went to go pay me for the treatment.
Me: You don’t have to pay me.
Ben: I want to
He put money on the table and left.
I skipped over to the table as he left and picked up the money . There was $300 there . Did I just get paid
$300 for a treatment??? Little did I know that eventually I would be making $300 𝑝𝑙𝑒𝑠 a treatment and this was just the beginning of my career as a successful acupuncturist.
I was SO GRATEFUL. Not just for the money, but let’s face it in the days of food stamps, that was A LOT of money, but for β„Žπ‘–π‘š. The way he made me feel, the way he touched me, the way he saw me…
Later on that night, my phone rang, it was β„Žπ‘–π‘š, he literally was the only person who π‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘™π‘’π‘‘ me. Lol I was a tester!! Ben: I feel amazing. That treatment really did something.
Me: thank you
Ben: no thank you, you are amazing, 𝐼 π‘™π‘œπ‘£π‘’ π‘¦π‘œπ‘’. Me: speechless
Ben: Talk to you tomorrow.
Me: ok, bye
Um… did he just say what I thought he said? Did he just say 𝐼 π‘™π‘œπ‘£π‘’ π‘¦π‘œπ‘’?? Can you guess what happens Day 12?
