“Do you want to get back together?” she asked. It was the second time she had come back to me. She cheated on me with this guy in her class and later realized that I was her “true love”. I was happy. I was madly in love with her. I wanted to take her back but this had happened before. It was like deja vu. She was strongly attracted to this other guy and couldn’t resist him when her was around. He, like a douche, used to follow her around, knowing that she was with someone else. I can’t blame the guy. She just wasn’t herself with me. She had a thing for bad guys while I had none of those qualities.
If I was put in the guy’s scenario, I’d never have made a move. Heck, I’d have stopped the girl from making a move. I value honour and integrity much more than the temptation to flirt with someone else’s girl.
But here I was. She was in tears, this felt like a dream. She missed me and wanted me back again. She had cheated on me before and I had lost all trust but, there she was. ‘My heart was saying “Yes” but my head was saying “No”‘. I wanted this moment to pass and directly go to the ending where me and her drive into the sunset and we live happily ever after. I said “yes”. It wasn’t easy, a lot of questions plagued my mind, would I be able to trust her again? Would she stop talking to this other guy? What if she starts talking to him again? Will I be able to handle it?
I jumped into the relationship right back with my eyes closed. I trust blindly because that’s the only way I know to love. I held her tight, told her I missed her. She smiled. She was happy too. We took trips together.
We went to a fish spa on Valentine’s day, held hands. Exchanged cards. I made her cry with my love. It was picture perfect. I wanted it to live on forever. Then something came up, I had to leave the city for a few months. It was a big deal for both of us. Ever since we had got back together and it had been a while, one month to be precise, there wasn’t a day we hadn’t met. How badly I was going to miss her. I told her I’ll stay connected. I told her to wait for me. I was the knight in shining armour who was setting sail just to come back for his damsel. It was my fairytale.
One week before my departure, she was feeling a bit sad. Said she didn’t want to talk. The next morning, I called her for lunch but she said she wasn’t hungry. I said I’d just come and pick her up, asked her location. She reluctantly told me where she was. I went there. As I entered the street, I saw a guy hiding his face, tiptoeing away. She froze with fear. I had reached a minute too early.
