On his birthday, they were over at her house, snuggling and watching movie after movie. Then he asked. He asked THE question..
Halfway through a movie, he pressed the pause button and went closer to her.
‘Oh no.. Sex? Please don’t let it be sex.. Don’t ask me for sex..’, she closed her eyes tight and prayed under her breath.
Oh god, how she loved his British accent. She slowly opened her eyes and looked at his gorgeous honey brown eyes.
‘You have been my hope and my maturity. All i want in this world is you and nothing more. Life to me has no meaning whatsoever if you are not there with me. Life has no meaning to me when i call your name and you’re not there. Babe, I would want you to answer me with all your heart whether you love me. Because i love you and i want you to be my girlfriend.’
He said it with a gentle touch with no rush between sentences. Should she trust him? His sincere soul longs for her love. His empty heart longs for her to take place. She thought hard. She didn’t want to be disappointed again. She wants a lifelong partner. She would be broken hearted to know she was just a fling. But this could be the Ideal One. He was the only guy closest to her ideal man. A sexy man who knows his future. A man who shows her his inner child as well as his maturity. A man who shares his thoughts and philosophies with her and constantly talk to her with interest. A fairly muscular man who is protective yet cares for her feelings. A man who don’t only spoil her but to make her a better person. She was so happy with his beautiful personality. She enjoyed every moment together with him.Thinking back of all the bittersweet memories…
She smiled at him.
He smiled back.
It was that. That simple. Just looking at his sincere smile, she made her decision. She said yes. He was so happy! He jumped up and hugged her. He spinned her in circles while laughing. They were finally an item. Weeks passed, they spent almost every available hour together. They cared about nobody but themselves. When things got in the way, he’d tell her, ‘ it’s you and me, against the world’. Of course, they weren’t perfect humans. They had arguments and they had their first big fight, on her birthday.
She was out with her friends and invited him to come as well. But when he arrived, she started acting weird. She didn’t know what to do. She didn’t know whether to talk to him or her friends. In the end, she pushed him aside and talked to her friends. He felt it but he asked to leave and just went off without a proper reason. He left her to have fun with her friends. She didn’t care and had her fun with her friends. Back home, she had a talk with him. He sounded pretty angry and hurt.
‘Why were you acting so childish and all..? Do you always do this when you’re with your friends?? Are you trying to impress them? Baby, it’s me and you against the world, why on earth do you want to impress them? They don’t care about you! They won’t appreciate you, but will use you.’
Yes they do! Of course, she dare not say that. She didn’t know much about her friends to be honest. She didn’t know if they really cared. She knew her friends use her. Well, indirectly. But she thought it would impress them. Unfortunately, it didn’t. And it won’t. She didn’t say a word. She didn’t like to argue back. But she felt it wasn’t fair for her.
‘I AM RIGHT!’
‘Okay, you ARE right. I was just.. having some fun. I didn’t know you would be upset.’ Tears rolled down her cheeks. She never heard him scream at her before. She wondered why.
‘Hun, why are you so.. angry?’
‘Because I care. Other people won’t do that. I’m different. I’m Mr Awesome and Mr Awesome loves you.’
‘I love you too,’ she said while giggling.
There was a few seconds of silence before he spoke again.
‘Are your friends more important than me?’
There is was. The second question that made her world stop for a minute. A long minute that was almost equivalent to eternity. 2 years ago, she learnt that she had to value friends more than her boyfriends. She was so dependent on her ex-boyfriend. She was stuck to him like glue. But he has his friends. Of course,it seemed to him that friends came before her so they broke up. Her friends still ignored her and declared she ditched them for a boy. She was devastated. Now, this question.. It was familiar.
‘Is he more important than your friends??’ yelled one of her friends.
‘What, you don’t need to care about us anymore?’ said another.
Now what should she say to her love? What is right and what is wrong? Are boyfriends more important that friends? Is this the end of her so-called lifelong relationship?
