Every weekend he comes home a little darker, a little angrier. What pains me is seeing all the bruises he got over his arms, body, legs and sometimes even his face.
I listen to his stories, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, sometimes sad and sometimes unbelievable. I like how I can see his transformation and showed me another side of him he never had until he joined army. I gotta admit, being a NSF's girlfriend is not easy. And it's never gonna be easy.
You get your perfectly planned weekend ruined bcos he has to stay in for guard duty. You can't spend a normal weekend together bcos he had confinement. You only have 2 out of the 7 days and sometimes when you're unlucky you don't even get any.
But I've learnt to look past all these. It doesn't matter that weekend dates are ruined, it doesn't matter that we can't get to spend a weekend together. What matters is that you know he is safe and sound and that nothing else really come in your way if you see that you guys are gonna spend so much more weekends together in the future.
Nothing good ever comes easy, that's why these 2 years will be a tough one. He've committed this period to serve the country for people he love. I believe the right thing to do is stand by him and walk through this 2 years with anything that comes our way.
Thank you SAF, for taking our relationship to the next level. And thank you for teaching me how to endure. Endure through the tough times and 2 years later everything will be better.
To my capable man, I always love you in uniform. You make me proud of all your achievements so far. Happy 2nd anniversary, I love you.
