A story

When she received the short note from him, she now understands what he was trying to do. All these months of coldness is really uncalled for. “What have I done?” she thought to herself.

Just barely three months ago, she saw him with another girl, walking hand in hand in the departmental store, looking so happy in each others arms. She refused to believe it even if she saw it with her own eyes and as soon as she reached home, she threw herself on the bed and started crying and punching the pillow in anger and frustration. She even thought of committing suicide.

What has she done to deserve this? He was just as sweet as honey just the night before and she really thought they will get married and have kids and a happy family. But her whole world collapsed just right now. She thought maybe, well maybe, that’s just his old friend or god-sister or just an overly zealous colleague but it just didn’t seem so. They are just like a pair of lovebirds. It is unmistakable.

So for almost three whole months, she avoided him, avoided his calls and even pretended not to be home when he waited for her outside her house for the whole chilly night. She even avoided to go online to check her e-mails and chat with her friends, something she never imagined herself being capable because she simply cannot live without the internet.

But the hurt is just too deep and she needed time to be quiet. “Have I been acting too hastily?” “Should I just listen to him and see what he has to say?” “Well, he may just make up some stories…” “But what if….” All these questions pops into her mind and she can’t seem to be at peace with herself. She has lost weight.

But just tonight, she saw a pink coloured envelop at her doorstep. She knew its from him but after almost three months, she thought well maybe let’s see what he has to say.

She opened the envelop and saw just one piece of paper. Her tears started to flow as she read the letter.

She immediately rushed out of the door and ran to the bus station. She reached just before 9 p.m. He was standing just the opposite side of the road and he saw her running. He smiled and started to run across the road, wanting to hug her and kiss her. He misses her really so much. So very much……

As he was running across the street, he heard shouts of people but he was too happy to see her to pay attention. It seems that it is their fate that a bus ran out of control and rammed into him. Maybe they were never meant to be together after all.
