I never wanted aught but love. Love is what defined me, it's what I looked for.
I am not that type of girl who is desired by every man. I am more of a “chubby cheeks” girl. But, my personality never failed me to attract the most stylish guy on the floor. I was perfect in my life until I made a mistake that I am not ashamed of. I fell in love with a man who never loved me back. That love kept hurting me till the end.
It happened 8 years back when I was in the college & he was my classmate. I never realized when our friendship fell into a friend zone. All the stupid things he used to do, started making sense for me. I began admiring him & soon my love became apparent to everyone around. For many years, I chased him & he backed off. Soon, my love became a public joke for everyone.
We kept best friends for many years because I wasn’t ready to lose him at any cost. Blindly in love, I never accepted the truth that he doesn’t love me & he will never love me. I never understood that he was not only playing with my sentiments but also using me for his self-serving. Few of my close friends warned me against him, but I unfriended all of them. On the last day of our college, he said me two words which changed me.
He said, “Leave me.” I let him inside the heart & he destroyed it. The pain of incomplete love story made me fall hard. He was supposed to be “the man” to me. His poignant love taught me to be tough, robust & hard as nails. I kept wishing and dreaming about him for years. I saw him happy with his new girlfriend’s but I never hated him. The feeling of emptiness killed me every day until the day I met my better half.
He came into my life unexpectedly. I never wanted anyone else but I couldn’t let my loneliness kill me. People says time is the best healer but in my case, time couldn’t heal me or my broken heart. I was living a clueless life until the day I met him. This time, I wasn’t ready to be broken again because I assumed he must be joking too. But, he said me two words that changed my life forever.
“Marry Me,” he said.
