I just feel so inspired to write this, I don’t know why. Recently, I’ve been thinking about our Short Love Story that happened some time ago.
“If love was a storybook, we’d meet on the very first page.”
When I first met you, I already have this lovely feeling for you. I don’t know how to explain it. I thought that it is just due to the weather at that time. At our very first meeting, you are so gentle and always look out for me. You even talk to me as if that we’ve been together for so long. It is so unusual for me because I have the thinking that I won’t be experiencing that kind of treatment in the beginning of that journey. Your kind conduct towards me made me feel assured and slowly I noticed that my eyes always noticed you. As time passed by, we’ve been close and somehow became a “tandem”. We were so in sync and it feels really nice.
“One day I caught myself smiling for no reason, and then I realized I was thinking about you.”
I don’t know when it started at all. I just feel happy whenever I’m with you. Sometime after we met, I know to myself that I already admire you. The way you act, the way you smile, the way you put up with my childish acts, the way how you make me feel like I’m on cloud nine. I just can’t help it, I feel so lucky that I met someone like you. The first person who makes my heart jumps in joy because of this kind of emotion after my tragic love story.
“Based on a psychological study, a crush only lasts for a maximum of 4 months. If it exceeds then you’re already in love.”
Yes, I admit that I fell in love with you. I treasured every moment that we were together. Even during the hard times, just you being around, it made me feel fine and still have the strength to move forward. I’ve been carrying it at that time but because of the circumstances, I didn’t permit myself to be carried by such emotions. I decided only to tell my close friends about you and shut it when we are together. I hope that the way I acted when I’m in front of you didn’t show how I truly feel about you. I am afraid that you might not see me the way I see you.
“I fell in love with you not for how you look, just for who you are.’
With all honesty, one of the things that I’m really attracted to you is how you carry yourself and the way you look, but those are just additional. The way you show who you are and the way you treated me; all those things are what made me fall in love with you. These are some of the moments that I will really cherish:
Holding Hands. You first held my hand is when you ask me to grab it to help me. Of course, at that time, it doesn’t have a romantic meaning for me. But the most memorable time that you did is when I’m sick and can’t properly walk, you grab my hand and we walked together. You didn’t know how much my heart beat so fast at that time. I think this is one of the most romantic things that you did for me. I can still feel the touch of your hand, its warmth and tender. I also remember that a lot of people who know the two of us saw us in that state, holding hands, but you didn’t feel embarrassed and it seems that you are proud about it.
Woo. I do admit that I’m the type of girl who won’t admit my mistake unless you say sorry. Though I only do it when I really like the guy. You always put up with my roller coaster mood. You gave me surprises just to woo me and so that we can reconcile. You always ensure that a day won’t end that I feel sulky towards you. How sweet. All of your simple “peace” offerings are still kept in my treasure box.
The “I LOVE YOU”. I don’t know if I should put a meaning into this. But it is really something unusual for you to suddenly say something like that with a straight face and serious eyes. It does make me heart happy. At that time, I fell in love with you more and more.
Mini-date. It is not really the “date” that is known by the general public. It is just that we went home together. We had this talk and you said something that made me a little bit angry and I walked away from you, I thought you won’t follow me but I’m so surprised when you suddenly grab my arm and says “Sorry”. I can’t go further in telling this story; I feel so much “happiness” in my heart now.
Treasured one. I won’t tell the whole story about this, the thing that I can say is that “WE ARE BOTH IN LOVE.”
“I wasn’t planning on loving you, but I’m happy that I did.”
We haven’t seen each other for some time now, but all the memories will always be special to me. I didn’t regret that I fell in love with you; the thing that I feel guilt is that I didn’t have courage at that time to be officially with you. I know that you might have your special someone now and I guess why we are separated with one another is to test our feelings. But if it end that we were not destined, I’m still blessed and lucky to meet someone like you.
