Benjamin Endeavor is 31, Ming Wu is 31; Xiang Hua Wu is 1
It was gradual
Then a playpen for her to take naps in
Then a crib so Ming wouldn't have to leave so early or walk a sleeping child home
Then a drawer of Ming's things in the guest room and a drawer of Xiang's things in another room
Their favorite food in the kitchen
And finally keys
Soon there wasn't a point of even returning home
And they officially moved in together...but not together
Ming insisted in separate rooms and discretion with overnight guests
She didn't want Xiang to see too much
But there were not any overnight guests
and slowly Ming and Xiang made their mark in the home. They helped redesigned the kitchen,
added child friendly art downstairs, moved championship trophies up high and our teddy bears down low.
It was gradual, but o so natural. Like the eroding of cliffs, or the movement of glaciers. So slow, so indeceptible able until one day, it was there, as if it had always been there, right where it belonged.
