It was the 6th Valentines day that my eyes waited for him. And like always, he didn’t come.! Did he even remember his promise? Or was the promise just a get-away ? Tired of waiting and making myself understand, I decided I will no longer fool myself.! Just as Hazel, my room mate walked in to show her proposal ring…!
Priya!!!! She yelled. Look at my ring, am so happy..!!! He finally proposed.. ! Finally we are together now…! Keeping my feelings aside I decided to be happy for my closest friends happiness.! I hugged her and congratulated her . She was in tears as soon as I hugged and why not.. It was a Long Wait of almost 7 years..!!!!
The guy she loved was trying to join Indian navy and had decided to propose her only after he achieves what he was striving for. With a big smile I said- “Hazel after knowing about Joe and your – 7 years long wait, I feel I should not give up.! Hazel held my hand and said, “Joe wanted to be with me Priya, he didn’t disappear.!” He just stayed along throughout the journey but strived harder before confessing.
There is a huge difference. People who disappear don’t ever intend to come back. And even if he does – won’t you always be scared of him disappearing again? Speechless I was.! I always knew the answer – may be… Just didn’t want to accept it..!
But I have now realized – not accepting is never an option.. But just an excuse!!!
