Even when you were standing in the line, waiting for the check-in to Cincinnati, I still felt that nothing was diffirent from the days before. I felt that everything was so unreal to me.
It was like a sudden, you finished your check-in and came to us. It was still too early for the boarding, so I took it for granted that we still have a bunch of time to say goodbye, till you directly went to the entrance and the "goodbyes" from you family. I got myself refreshed , realizing that it was the time for us to part. I tried all my best to hold back the tears but still in vain, until you turned left, back, left again.
I suddenly understood that things could not begin as you imagine, nor over as you imagine.
