Those 10 months happened from August to May, so that was exactly a whole school year for me
Usually when she was playing, let's say, next week, I'm like "Okay let's try to survive this week, then I'll be able to see her play next week!" But during those times, oh gosh, I could not remember how I was able to survive during that time waiting for Maria to really come back, seeing her withdraw from tournaments to tournaments
I always said to myself, after waiting for Maria for 10 months, such a long ass layoff, I could wait for anything
