I feel like our relationship is like playing zombies on C.O.D... The longer we last the more "points" we get and more security in our relationship... Meaning like the more we're together the more we experience and things become more easy because we open "new doors", like trust, respect and true love. And yeah more "zombies" will come and it will become hard, but, if we stay smart, stand our ground and work together, we can make it to new awesome levels. :) I love you. Thank you so much for not giving up on me and for being here for me.
