Our love is like a child to me…
Because, it’s my first love and Michale’s too…
We were so in love for about 4 years…
Neither of us ever cheated nor played with our feelings…
Our feelings for each other hasn’t faded till now….
We fell in love more and more each day….
But,then recently things changed…
We weren’t loving each other as before…
We were drifting apart a lot… Neither of us wanted it to end so we continued pretending to love each other….
But, then I realized that if we kept on acting and pretending to love each other…
So, I decided to end it somehow one day…
I was so careful not to hurt his feelings… So, I bought his favourite dish when I returned home. But, as I reached to knock at the door happily, I found it wasn’t locked.
As I opened the door silently, I heard him giggling….
Not only him…. Also a female giggling voice too…
My heart began to beat so fast… Praying to god, hoping what I heard wouldn’t be true…. I gathered all my courage and went inside the house…
I dropped the food I bought in horror. It was what I thought. I saw him cheating on me with another women. A women whom I’ve never seen before.
My heart broke. I was so emotionless because my brain got stuck for a second. I never knew how I would react to such a situation because I’ve never imagined my Michael will do this to me.
Seeing me there, Michael stood and came to me…
“Sorry dear….we can talk…I can explain”, he kept on saying.
I held my hand in front of him to ask him to stop…
” I thought you’d be honest with me. You could’ve said to me Michael!!… I’ve been with you for four years and the love we made together has its own value”, I shouted.
“Fine!. Do whatever you want…. Thank you for being with me all along and dumping me in such a grossest and evilest manner!. I’ll leave…”, I said and went out.
He came running behind me shouting,” Sorry dear, I wouldn’t do that again. Please come back to me. Its just a one time thing. We’ve not known each other before”.
But, I don’t want to hear anything. I just kept on walking.
After I went out of sight from Michael, I called my bestie ….
“Anna, Can I stay at your place tonight?”, I asked with a shivering voice that she noticed that I was crying.
” What happened to you?”, she asked.
“Michael cheated on me. I’ll tell you everything later…”, I said.
” Oh my god!. What??…Okay…okay…Don’t worry I’ll come to get you. Where are you now?”, she asked.
“I’m near the Polly square lane”, I said.
” Wait right there, I’ll come and pick you up”, she said and hung up.
While I was waiting for her, I heard a girl crying out so loud for help.
I turned towards which direction it came from.
“Please help me!”, the sound came.
I walked towards that direction. I saw a little girl who’s about 4-5 years old, lie on the floor.
“What’s your name?”, I asked.
” I…My….My parents did this to me…”, saying so she showed me her hand. There was a deep cut on her palm. Also there were many cuts on her body.
“Oh my god!. What’s this?. How could anyone be so cruel?. Would you like to come with me for tonight?. I’ll let you stay with me. We’ll go to a safer place tomorrow”, I said.
” I don’t wanna come with you mama!. You’re so cruel. You and dad are gonna kill me soon”, she said.
“I’m not your mom!. What are you talking about?. I don’t even know you!. Are you crazy?”, I asked.
” No mom!. I’m not crazy. You’re crazy!!. You and dad are the ones who gave life to me. You are my mom and Michale is my dad.”, she said.
“I don’t understand!”, I said.
” I’m your love story mom. I got life first when you and dad fell in love and expressed your feelings for each other. There are many love stories like me for each couple. We’ll live happily and keep on growing for each love anniversary of the couple from which we born. We’ll get a scar each time when the couples fight. If it was a small fight and if the couple forgot about the fight, our scar will get healed. If the fight got over and the couple didn’t get over it mentally, the scar won’t get healed ever. We will die when a couple breaks up”, she said.
I couldn’t believe what she was saying. Even thought it sounded crazy, I wanted to know whether it was real, so I asked her this question,” If what you say is true, I wanted to ask you something…Tell me why I loved your father so much? “.
” Well, if you want me to be honest, you love him with all your heart because he never made you feel alone and never restricted you from doing what you love even though it sounded stupid. Like the time you wanted to dance while you were stuck in traffic, in the middle of the road and the time when you decide whether to become an artist or a writer. He agrees with you every time”, she said.
I laughed and almost blushed…
“I believe you. So, what happens to you if both people in the couple dies?”, I asked.
” We won’t die after them. Because, as long as others speak about that couple’s love story, we’ll live until that. We’ll fade away if the couple breaks up and finds another partner for themselves or if others forgot about their love story after their death. But, mom. Trust me. Dad never wanted to cheat on you. That women seduced him. You should go to him.
He loves you with your whole heart. Go to him and make me live mom. You made me live for 4 years and please don’t kill me now. You gave life to me mom. Don’t become the murderer of your own child”, she said.
But, I wasn’t satisfied.
“I could’ve forgiven him if he did anything except cheating on me. Sorry dear. You’ll always be inside my thoughts as a beautiful memory. I can’t do this anymore. I think its time for you to go”, saying so I walked away.
After that crazy night, I’ve not spoken to or seen Michale. I’m sure he wanted to break up as much as I wanted. I’m now living with my friend Anna. She keeps urging me to patch up with him. But, I couldn’t just agree to that.
The next day, a shocking news arrived. Michale was found dead in a car accident with his new girlfriend.
Weird ‘ , thought to myself.
Although I felt worried and sad, for some reason, I didn’t feel for him.
Anna was going out of town today so I helped her pack the bags and she left. She asked me to be more careful.
After she left, I was busy doing the house chores and when I came to the couch it was pretty late.
I tried to watch some TV, that’s when I heard someone knocking at the door.
” Who’s that?.”, I shouted.
“Its me open the door”, the voice said.
I couldn’t recognize who that was but it was a familiar voice. So, unintentionally I opened the door.
I froze as I saw who stood behind the door. It was my love story.
” What are you doing here?”, I asked.
“Sorry mom. I killed dad because he was the main reason for you to accept in killing me. I’m now here for your soul mom. I’ll die soon. I still am alive because I killed dad before he could confess his love for the girl he have been dating after cheating on you”, she said.
” Oh no!. Please don’t kill me. Please have mercy”, I cried.
“Did you had mercy when you broke up and was ready to kill me?. You couples don’t understand a thing. It may seem easy for you as you people will keep on killing us and giving life to new ones like us with new partners. If you can’t rise a child till the end, then you don’t have to give birth to it. You people have that courage and hope that your love will last lifetime at the beginning of a relationship. But, you aren’t ready to face the gap and arguments that arises between you and are not ready to face each other’s flaws and accept the other person’s imperfections.
The long lived love story is Romeo and Juliet’s. That love story is more than a century old. But,nowadays we love stories are dying so young. Despite others, I came to you and begged you to give me a life. But, you didn’t care about me. Then, why should I show mercy to you?. Now I’ll kill you and make your friends talk about your love story. In that way, I’ll remain alive while you and father will be sleeping in grave”, saying so she stung me hard with a sword….
As my heart beat faded, I could hear her say,”Sorry mom. But, I love to live forever as your pure love story …”
