Anna met Aaron on a nice day of summer time in 1938 nearby the village river bank. She was only 9 and he was 11. Anna came from another city to this village with her family. They used to play nearby the river bank most of the days, since they met. They rowed boats together, they swum together. They became good friends eventually. When they became youngsters, they fell in love. They loved each other very much.

But Anna’s family didn’t like Aaron, since his parents were only farmers. Its Because Anna’s family was the wealthiest family in the village, and they had good money too. Anna’s father John wanted, her to marry to a wealthy man who lived in the city. Anna couldn’t do anything about that, since she is just a girl. Although Anna asked, Aaron to take her for somewhere and marry her, without proper job Aaron didn’t like to do so.

Things were going wrong. Anna married to a rich guy who lived in the city, it happened only for her father’s desire. Anna never liked that guy. After marriage, she had to go to His husband’s house for living. Aaron disappointed too and he left the country forever.
But Anna never lived in happily. She was always thinking about Aaron and her past love. Sometime Anna imagined they are rowing boats and playing nearby the river bank. So… always those past memories were haunting in her mind. Further, Anna was never being a good wife to her husband due to these past memories. So…most of the time Anna’s husband asked the reason for her abnormal behavior. But Anna never gave a good answer for that. Eventually Anna’s husband became a drunker, some days he didn’t come home, and instead he clubbed and womanized for all the day. But Anna didn’t care about it .
Anna got pregnant at 23. It was 1952. One day Anna’s husband came drunk. And he had a quarrel with Anna. After few arguments, Anna’s husband Michel pushed Anna hardly away. Anna fell down on the floor and hit her head on a door, and her fainted. Then she was hospitalized. She fell in to a coma in there. After two weeks of coma she got up, but she didn’t remind anything. She lost her memory. She lost her baby too. Then Michel went to jail for 5 years. Doctors moved Anna to a mental hospital.

( )
In the mental hospital Anna got a young talented doctor named, Leonard for her treatments. He tried to recover Anna in many ways. Finally he realized that Anna wants only love and care for recovery of her brain. So in few years of treatments and mental therapies, Anna was recovering from her abnormal behaviors. But her memory didn’t come back as previous. Meanwhile Anna’s doctor began to love Anna for real. Anna’s mind eventually felt the love and care. Then she began to recover as a new life. Very rarely, Anna addressed Leonard, as “Aaron”. So Leonard responded that name and he was pretending as Aaron.
In a fine morning Anna’s doctors decided, that Anna may go home now. So Anna came for her old home again. By that time Anna’s father has died. She had only mother and one servant in the home. Meanwhile, Leonard Proposed to her. So… she said “yes” to him. By then, Anna didn’t have any memories of Aaron or her childhood.
One evening Anna and Leonard went to river bank where Anna and Aaron used to play as kids. At first site of the river Anna felt something strange and then she shocked. So they came quickly home again. Anna got a severe headache and fever throughout that night. Then the following day everything seemed to be fine. So… days passed normally for another 6 months. Leonard planed the wedding in few weeks.
It was year 1956.One evening Anna went to the river bank with the servant. For a few minutes Servant left Anna, for home to get Anna’s Scarf. So Anna was walking along the river bank and saw a little boy who was playing around. So Anna heard that boy is whispering to her…
“Anna… say you are my friend forever?”
“Yes Aaron…I always your best friend. But tell me… you never leave me?”
“I never leave you Anna, no matter what, I never leave you, I promise”.
“Yes…I promise too, not to leave you ever”.
“Anna shall we row the boat, today’s river is fine, isn’t it?”

“Yes Aaron…today is the most beautiful day of the river, lets we row the boat”.

Few days later Anna’s body was found down by the river with the wreckage of very old wooden boat.
P.S – Aaron was never being to another country. He wanted to have a good job and marry Anna one day. Anna’s father john, asked many times to leave his daughter. But Aaron denied, and then John hired a man to kill Aaron. After Aaron’s death Aaron’s father escaped to another region for protect his family from John. So…John pretended to Anna, that Aaron left the country. So…Anna never knew about Aaron’s death.
Few months later one villager who was fishing, saw two kids were playing along the river bank and he heard they are whispering …
“Anna… say you are my friend forever?”
“Yes Aaron…I always your best friend. But tell me… you never leave me?”
“I never leave you Anna, no matter what, I never leave you, I promise”.
“Yes…I promise too, not to leave you ever, no matter what”.
“Anna shall we row the boat… today’s river is fine, isn’t it?”.
“Yes Aaron…today is the most beautiful day of the river, lets we row the boat”.

It’s a very rare incident to see Jenifer’s name in one of my companies payroll. At the first time when I saw her name, I surprised and I thought it’s a different Jenifer. But when I see you in front of me, I freezed for a moment.

It all began just twenty years back.
Richard was a rich boy in our school, and Jenifer was his girl friend. Richard came from a wealthy family and Jenifer came from a normal family. But I was the poorest fellow in the school, and I lived in very low with my mom and my brother. Sometime we didn’t have any to eat for whole day, lot of days I drink more and more water to prevent the hunger. We were in poor that much. Some time Richard helped me to study, and he gave me even money. Richard was not so good in education. He always lived a luxury life with his other friends who had money. He clubbed, and drunk. Jenifer also joined with them, according to them, they were enjoying their life. But I was totally separate from those works and I concentrated my mind only to education, its because mainly I didn’t have money for that.
Like most of the days, one day I drank only water for get rid of hunger. But I didn’t notice, Jenifer looked that and she came to me. She gave me two sandwiches and a snack to drink. I felt very shy and I rejected. But she touches my hand and told me,
“It’s OK, you eat this” then I took her sandwiches and ate. She sat down by my side and smiled. Then she began to speak.
“I have seen you lot of times, you drink only water. I haven’t seen you eat in the school cafeteria. I wanted to talk with you in time.” so that day ended like that.
So days passed that way and she helped me most times, and the Richard too.
One day she came to me and cried a lot. She told me that she broke up with Richard and he left for another rich girl. I felt very sorry about her. so after that incident, she was around me most of the times. So day by day, we close to each others. One Sunday evening we heard a bad news. it was about Richard. He died due to a car accident. It was very sad news for everyone in the collage, including me and Jenifer too.
One fine evening Jenifer came to my home for first time to give a note book. But I was not in the home and my mother was.

After having 7-8 months of Jenifer’s friendship, I felt strong feeling about her. And day by day, I ignored my education works too. Every night I was dreaming about her, I didn’t do any school works. I wanted to be with her in every second. So I began to love her. One night I thought to tell her my feelings about her.

On the very next morning, I met her as usual and let her know my feelings. But she rejected me so sadly. I couldn’t believe this, I asked the reasons, but she never told me. Finally I thought to myself, “she rejected me, because my poorness. She may stay with me closely, because she may wanted to killing her loneliness after leaving of Richard”.
I thought my self, how miserable to being a poor. I don’t have money to spend as I want, I can’t eat, what I want, I don’t have proper house to live, now I can’t love the person I want. I felt that poorness is the most miserable thing to have a person in this world. I wanted to kill myself, even to suicide. I didn’t have good friends to tell about this. I had to bear all this lonely. But everything has a breaking point. I decided to suicide. Same time I got angry about Jennifer too.
In the next day of morning, I went to school by walking. On the way, I saw a blind person, who tries to cross the road. No one helped him, but there were a lot people around. Suddenly I realized that, this blind man is trying to live without his eyes. But I go to kill myself, due to my poorness. I feel ashamed on me. I wanted to be rich, that’s the only way to win this world, and to get revenge from Jenifer too. Then I went to the blind man and, helped him to cross the road. There after, I dedicated my entire life for education. I never asked from her again. Day by day she was going away from me.

After the final exam, I won a scholarship to a university. Then, I lost all contacts of her. and her memories were fading in my mind. In the university, I was one of the brightest students. Meanwhile my brother got a job too. at the final exam of the university, I got many job opportunities. I got a good job and I could save some money too. By the time, I got a proposal for marriage. She was a doctor. After the marriage, I resigned my job and formed my own company. It was being succeeded by day by day. I got two kids. So there after that blind man incident I was in happy since today. It was almost 20 years.
She almost became a different person, even I couldn’t recognize her, and it seems she had a difficult time. I couldn’t speak to her either.
“I…I didn’t know your are working here, accidentally I saw your name in the payroll, then only I knew about you. Why didn’t you talk to me?
“I didn’t know this place belongs toy you till I came here, after I knew about that, I really wanted to go away. But I couldn’t, I came through many difficulties, its very difficult to find a job out there”.
“Yeah I see…what happened Jennifer? I really worry about you”.
“After one year, I left the school, my father died and I had to go for a job. But I couldn’t find a good job, I worked in several places. Eventually I married a person; he was a drunker, every day I was beaten. my marriage never being a good one.Then I got three children, and he left me. I had to take care of my children. “
I shocked after heard her story. I can’t imagine what to tell her. then I thought, when the time I proposed her, if she accepted my love then the story would be different.
“I don’t know what to say…I feel very sorry about you, but if you accepted my love, when I proposed you, both we are in happy today”. Why…why did you reject my love over and over Jennifer? When you reject me, I wanted to kill myself, but you didn’t know that. You never know how much I loved you and, how much you meant to me”.
She just smile innocently and didn’t tell anything.
“Jennifer…please tell me why didn’t you accept my love? At least tell me now… please”
“I loved you Chris, more than my life… I loved you, I swear to god I loved you so much” Oh god please help me”…and she began to cry.
I couldn’t control myself and ran to her. Then I hugged her tightly.
“Then why didn’t you tell me Jennifer? Why didn’t you tell me?”
“If I tell that I loved you, Chris you never be the person who you are now”
“What do you mean Jennifer, who am I now?” what’s the different? I don’t know, what are you talking”
“Chris…I loved you a lot, but first it was not a love, when I was with Richard, I noticed you so many times. I understood how poor you are and how much struggle you do for the education and to live. I knew most of the time, you didn’t eat, you drank only water. I felt very sorry about you. Then one day I came to you and gave the sandwiches. You remember?”
“Yes…yes…I remember…just like yesterday”.
“So…day by day I felt you are a really good person, and the same time I felt Richard was a moron, he had enough money to spend. He didn’t love me either; he wanted me as a toy”. So one day he dumped me. I knew that he goona leave me one day or other. After that I did close to more and more to you. You also cared about me. when time passed, without knowing, I was falling love with you. I knew that you gonna propose me. I was counting for days to reply you Saying “I love you too, Chris”. But remember one day I went to your home?”
“yes…I was not in the home but my mother was”
“Yes…I met your mother there, she was a good women, she asked me to come in to your home and we were talking an hours. that day i realized how poor you are, it was only a room not a house, there was not even a bed, there were only two chairs. She told me how meant you for her, she told me how your family is living. She told me that you are the only hope for your family. She told me that When you educate well, you gonna have a good job, then you will become a wealthy person. She dreamed about you so high. She knew that you had an ability to become a rich person.
“OK…so why did you leave me? What’s the point?
“Chris…I know that you are such a good person and a sensible person, if I felling love with you, you never studied well, I saw it sometime. When you close to me, you ignore the studies. If you didn’t do your studies well, you never became a person who you are now. So I thought if I leave you, your mother’s dream may come true. When I was coming back from your home, I cried a lot, but I decided to leave you on behalf of your successes. After three weeks of time, you asked me, as I hope. Chris forgive me Chris…I loved you so much Chris, that’s why I rejected your love’. if I love me, than you, I may accepted your love. but I loved you more than myself Chris, that’s why I rejected your love”
“Oh…god Jennifer, what are you telling me”. I don’t care this life or wealthiness. Jennifer…I wanted to be with you. I’m so sorry, I studied so hardly because, I wanted to revenge from you. I thought you left me due to my poorness. Please forgive me!!! Oh…god what I’m going to do now”

“It’s OK Chris, this is my fate, I never regret about my life, but the love I did for you made the man who you are now. I’m happy about my love”.

She was so pretty. When I saw her for the first time near by the cinema, she was looking for someone. At first sight I fall in love with her. She has a nice figure and beautiful face. I wanted to talk with her somehow. She was wearing a nice blue color trouser and pink color blows. She gave a nice smile for me, but suddenly a guy came by a car and picks her up and they went. He was a wealthy guy, I assumed. It’s because he dressed well, he wore a rich watch, and even he came by a Jaguar. So that day finished like that.

After two weeks later, I saw this girl siting on a bench of city park. She was reading a book. My mind began trembling and I suppose to go to her and ask permission to sit on the bench nearby her. Then I moved to her, unexpectedly, that same guy came and picked her up to his car and went. So this time I realized that he is the boy friend of her. so I felt so sad about that.

One day, again I saw her at a parking lot. She was very beautiful on that day, I got my car and ride nearby her slowly, she suddenly looked in to my car and smiled at me. So I stopped the car and, asked,
“O…hi…have we met before?”

“Oh yes…No…no…I have seen you several times around here in town” she replied.
“Oh well…I see…So bye for now!!! Have a nice day” I said and moved from her. It was one of happy day of my life. Coz she talked with me for first time. When I moved I saw on the side mirror that a guy came to her by car and picked her up in to his car and went.
After several months, on a rainy day I met her in the park. this time I directly went to her and said..
She also said Hi” to me and at the end of the day we became such friends. But I always wanted to ask her about those guys, but I didn’t. If I asked that, she get to know that, I’m spying on her. But I figured not to ask about them. Instead, I thought if those guys really matters to her, she will tell me about.
When time passing, I was felling love with her so much. But she didn’t know that. She also so much closes to me. I could feel it in her eyes when she looking to my eyes. Now I wanted to ask from her. I wanted to propose to her. When I went to bed one night, I was just laying on the bed and dreaming about her so much. I reminding how pretty she is, how adorable she is, how pleasant she is, how sweet her smile is, how close she is to me. So I decided ask her on following day, so that night sleep didn’t come to me. I couldn’t wait till the sun rise.

Early in the morning I dressed up and went to a florist and bought a Lilac flower bouquet. Suddenly my phone rang, and male voice said “Do you know Miss. Clair?” I said yes she is good friend of mine. So that man said, “it’s good, please come to the city hospital,” I couldn’t believe and, I went there as quickly as possible.
When I reach there I saw her laying on a bed in the emergency ward, there attached many medical equipments to her and bandaged almost everywhere. I went nearby her and looking to her face, she moved her shaking hand to my hand and hold tightly, and then tears came out from her eyes. Her lips shivered, but she couldn’t speak. I bent her face and gave a gentle kiss to her forehead and told “Sweetie don’t worry, I stay nearby you, this gonna be OK soon”. Then I saw, so many tears came from her eyes and soaked her chicks. So I moved to hospital attendant and ask, “What’s all about this?” He replied me that…
“Well…We don’t know much, someone found her while laying down on a road last night. She was heavily beaten by someone nearly to death. So one kind taxi driver has brought her up here… don’t worry she’s gonna make it”.
After three days she was able speak, and then…she began to tell her story…
“I’m so sorry to tell you this, but I can’t hold all this in my heart anymore. Since I first saw you near by the cinema, I realized you are a good guy; I wanted to talk with you sometime. Don’t get me wrong, my heart was so heavy to hold my miserable life, I wanted a good friend to talk. You know what? Do you believe me if I say you, I’m a call girl? Yes I was. But when I had your company, I wanted to stop my sinner life. I realized you’re a good man, you respected me, you made me laugh, and you made my days. When you nearby me, I felt whole world is mine. But always I wanted not to let feel in your mind, that way about me. Coz I always scared, if you know about my real situation, you may leave me, I thought. You know, I had several boyfriends, all they wanted my body, not my heart. So they were leaving me in several months. But I wanted to be married to a good guy always. But that fortune never came to me. So I fed up with my miserable life, I cried almost every night a lot till my heart going to come out. Eventually, I wanted to revenge myself, so I became a call girl. But after I met you, I began to love me again, I wanted to stay with you forever…like a ….good friend. So I wanted to quit my sinner life and I went to church and confessed. At that very same night one rich guy called me and asked my service. But I told him I’m not a call girl anymore. He forced me to do so. But I refused, I told him that leave me alone here after, I’m leaving the sinner life. Then he threatened me and came to my apartment and he did what he came to do, I couldn’t help, I cried a lot. then he beaten me to nearly death. After all, he took me in to his car’s dickey and went. After going several miles, dropped me near a ditch beside the road. That’s how I came to hospital. You know, Honestly I just wanted only for your true friendship, it’s because I couldn’t accept more from you rather than a friendship, I know, I am a sex doll who was passing by one hand to another hand. But after I found a good hearted person I wanted to stop nearby that person as a good friend. That’s all. Sorry for telling all this missarable story to you.”
I freezed for a moment and looking to her eyes deeply. Then grabbed her to me and gave a kiss on her dried lips while tighten her body to mine, and whispered on her ear that saying “I love you so much forever”.
Now both of us live in happily and have three beautiful children. Two beautiful girls and one handsome boy. I’m always glad to my beautiful wife who gave me this happiness to my life, after all.

Age of six he loved her so much and everyday he’d let her know “I love you grace”. But each day she’d just laugh and run away till one day she turned around and sat with him on the playground. And say…
“I’m sorry Chris I don’t love you you’ll find someone else who loves you too”

In the High school they met again and they laughed about the things back then they began to date and fell in love. he got the girl that he’d dreamed of. But when came to college everything changed they were far apart with lives rearranged.

“We’ll be fine grace” but she had doubt she turned and said “it won’t work out”.
“I’m sorry Chris I can’t love you, you’ll find someone else who loves you too”.
In their twenties they met again and they laughed about the things back then he took her hand and they began to dance remembering their old romance. Two years later she became his wife they’d be together all of their life.

They went on a drive, when it was no longer light they drove down the roads of the starry night the music came on she started to sing he whispered,

“Grace you’re my everything”.
But then suddenly in one big flash headlights shone as their car crashed he saw her laying down on the ground. he felt his tears start rolling down.
“Grace…” he cried she took his hand “I have to leave… Please understand”
“I love you so much it’s always been true but you’ll find someone else and you’ll love again too”
“No,” he cried “it’s always been you. I don’t want someone else I only want you”.

And there on that street is where he cried hugging his love as she slowly died.
Two butterflies love each other very much….one day they were playing hide and seek at night. Girl butterfly says “A small game between us”. She says “one who sits on this flower earlier in the tomorrow morning that one loves the other most”. Then the boy butterfly says ‘OK’. Next morning she was waiting from 4’o clock. the flower opened… she found the boy butterfly dead inside it, because he stayed there since the previous night itself. That’s what true love.
He met her in a party, she was so outstanding, many guys chasing after her, while he was so normal, nobody paid attention to him. At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she was surprised but being polite, she promised.

They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything she felt uncomfortable, she thought, please, let me back home … when suddenly he asked the waiter: would you please give me some salt? I’d like to put it in my coffee. Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red, but, still, he put the salt in his coffee and drank it. She asked him curiously:
why you have this habit?

He replied, when I was a little boy, I lived near the sea, I liked playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, salty and bitter, just like the taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I will think of my childhood, think of my hometown, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there. Saying that, tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched. That’s his true feeling, from the bottom of his heart. A man who could tell out he’s home sick, he must be a man who loved his home.

Then she also started to talk, talked about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family … a really nice talk, also a beautiful beginning of their story. They continued to date. She found that he was a man who met all her demands, with tolerance, a kind heart, warm, cheerful, Thanks to his salty coffee!

Then the story was just like every beautiful love story:,the princess married to the prince, then they were living the happy life And, every time she made coffee for him, she put some salt in the coffee, as she knew that’s the way he liked. After 40 years, he passed away, left her a letter which said,

My dearest….

please forgive me, forgive my whole life lie. This was the only lie I said to you the salty coffee. Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous at that time, actually I wanted some sugar, but I said salt !!! It’s hard for me to change so I just go ahead. i never thought that could be the start of our communication! I tried to tell you the truth many times in my life, but I was too afraid to do that, as I have promised not to lie to you for anything … Now I’m dying, I’m afraid of nothing so I’m telling you the truth, I don’t like salty coffee, what a strange bad taste it is … but I have had the salty coffee all my life since I knew you, I’ve never felt sorry for anything I have done for you. Having you with me is the biggest happiness in my whole life. If I can live for the second time, I still want to know you and have you as my wife, even though I have to drink the salty coffee again.Her tears made the letter totally wet. One day, someone asked her, what’s the taste of salty coffee?

Girl: Nurse, where is he?
Nurse says: They didn’t tell you who’s heart they gave you, did they?

*Girl reads note*
“I told you it was yours”

One night a guy and a girl were driving home from the movies. The boy sensed there was something wrong because of the painful silence they shared between them that night. The girl then asked the boy to pull over because she wanted to talk. She told him that her feelings had changed & that it was time to move on.

A silent tear slid down his cheek as he slowly reached into his pocket & passed her a folded note.
At that moment, a drunk driver was speeding down that very same street. He swerved right into the drivers seat, killing the boy. Miraculously, the girl survived. Remembering the note, she pulled it out & read it. “Without your love, I would die.”
One boy dated his girl for many years. He was working in a company as a little executive. His future wasn’t bright but they were very happy together. One Valentine Day, this romantic boy folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a gift to his girl. On the same day, the girl told him she was going to Paris to further her study and she would not come back. She also told him that she could not see any future in them as he was just a small executive. She proposed a breakup. Reluctantly, the boy agreed her request and both had a sad farewell Valentine meal in the usual cafe they first dated.

After the separation, He worked hard day and night, attended night class and slogging his body and mind just to make something out of his life. After several years of hard work and with the help of friends, he setup his small company selling paper craft, bought a small studio apartment and a luxury car.
One rainy day while this guy was driving; he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain and walking to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched. It didn’t take him long to realize those were his girl’s parents. With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them to know that he wasn’t the same anymore; he had his own company, car, comfort etc. He made it! Before the guy can realize, the couple was walking towards a cemetery, not far away and the boy drove them there. With a shock, he saw a photograph of his ex-girlfriend smiling sweetly as ever at him from her tombstone. Next to the tombstone rested his precious paper cranes in a bottle placed beside her tomb.

Her parents explained that she did not leave for France at all. She was stricken ill with cancer and she insisted her parents to keep this secret from him. She passed away with the final stage of cancer 2 days after she broke up with him. In her heart, she believed he would make it someday. The girl did not want her illness to be in his obstacle and she chose to leave him.
She had wanted her parents to put his paper cranes beside her when she died, because, if the day came when fate brought him to her again, she wanted him to take some of those paper cranes back with him. The guy just wept and he broke down. He took home the bottle of 1,000 paper cranes; he gave her on Valentine Day.
This boy stayed single for the rest of his life. He truly lost someone he loved and he put all his heart in his career. He made it to the top 30 entrepreneurs of the year and he earned his first million dollar at the age of 35.

A very poor man lived with his wife. One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.
The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken.
She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.
He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife. He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut. She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

There was a blind girl who was filled with animosity and despised the world. She didn’t have many friends, just a boyfriend who loved her deeply, like no one else. She always used to say that she’d marry him if she could see him. Suddenly, one day someone donated her a pair of eyes.
And that’s when she finally saw her boyfriend. She was astonished to see that her boyfriend was blind. He told her,

“You can see me now, can we get married?”

She replied,

“And do what? We’d never be happy. I have my eye sight now, but you’re still blind. It won’t work out, I’m sorry.”

With a tear in his eye and a smile on his face, he meekly said,

“I understand. I just want you to always be happy. Take care of yourself, and my eyes.”

One boy daily used to meet her girlfriend in a park. The girl used to always arrive on time. But the boy was always late but the girl never got angry on boy. One day the girl didn’t come that’s why the boy went to her home. The boy came to know there that the girl will live for only 4-5 days. The boy went back crying and committed suicide and left a letter for the girl…

The letter was:

From the very beginning, girl’s family objected strongly on her dating this guy, saying that it has got to do with family background, & that the girl will have to suffer for the rest of her life if she were to be with him. Due to family’s pressure, the couple quarreled very often. Though the girl loved the guy deeply, she always asked him: “How deep is your love for me?” As the guy is not good with his words, this often caused the girl to be very upset. With that & the family’s pressure, the girl often vents her anger on him. As for him, he only endured it in silence.

After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated & decided to further his studies overseas. Before leaving, he proposed to the girl:

“I’m not very good with words. But all I know is that I love you. If you allow me, I will take care of you for the rest of my life. As for your family, I’ll try my best to talk them round. Will you marry me?”
The girl agreed, & with the guy’s determination, the family finally gave in & agreed to let them get married. So before he left, they got engaged. The girl went out to the working society, whereas the guy was overseas, continuing his studies. They sent their love through emails & phone calls. Though it was hard, but both never thought of giving up.One day, while the girl was on her way to work, she was knocked down by a car that lost control. when she woke up, she saw her parents beside her bed. She realized that she was badly injured. Seeing her mum crying, she wanted to comfort her. But she realized that all that could come out of her mouth was just a sigh. she had lost her voice….

The doctor says that the impact on her brain has caused her to lose her voice. Listening to her parents’ comfort, but with nothing coming out from her, she broke down. During the stay in hospital, besides silence cry,..It’s still just silence cry that accompanied her.

Upon reaching home, everything seems to be the same. Except for the ringing tone of the phone. Which pierced into her heart every time it rang.

She does not wish to let the guy know & not wanting to be a burden to him, she wrote a letter to him saying that she does not wish to wait any longer.

With that, she sent the ring back to him. In return, the guy sent millions & millions of reply, countless of phone calls,. . all the girl could do, besides crying, is still crying…. The parents decided to move away, hoping that she could eventually forget everything & be happy.

With a new environment, the girl learns sign language & started a new life. Telling herself everyday that she must forget the guy. One day, her friend came & told her that he’s back. She asked her friend not to let him know what happened to her. Since then, there wasn’t any more news of him.

A year has passed & her friend came with an envelope, containing a invitation card for the guy’s wedding. The girl was shattered. When she open the letter, she saw her name in it instead. When she was about to ask her friend what’s going on, she saw the guy standing in front of her.
He used sign language to tell her “I’ve spent a year to learn sign language. Just to let you know that I’ve not forgotten our promise. Let me have the chance to be your voice. I Love You.” With that, he slipped the ring back into her finger. The girl finally smiled.

A girl asked a boy if she was pretty, he said


She asked him if he wanted to be with her forever, he said


Then she asked him if he would cry if she walked away, he said


She had heard enough; she needed to leave.

As she walked away he grabbed her arm and told her to stay. He said

“You’re not pretty, you’re beautiful. I don`t want to be with you forever, I need to be with you forever. And I wouldn’t cry if you walked away, I would die.”

(a girl and boy were speeding over 120 Kmph on a motorcycle)

Girl: Slow down. I’m scared.

Boy: No this is fun.

Girl: No its not. Please, it’s too scary!

Boy: Then tell me you love me.

Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down! Guy: Now give me a big hug. (Girl hugs him)

Boy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on? It’s bugging me.

In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the boy realized that his breaks broke, but he didn’t want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.

One boy’s dairy

10th grade….
As I sat there in the English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called best friend’. I stared at her long silky hair, and wished she was mine, but she didn’t notice me like that. And I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before. I handed them to her. Then, I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be friends, I love her but I’m just too shy. And I don’t know why.
11th grade….
The phone rang on the other end, it was her, she was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart, she asked me to come over because she didn’t want to be alone, so I did. As I sat to next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, after 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go home…she looked at me, said “thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek…I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why, I loved her so much, but I just can’t say it. I always think the word “Shy” by the time I see her.
Senior year…
One fine day she walked to my locker, “my date is sick’ she said “he’s not gonna go’ well, I didn’t have a date, and in 7th grade, we made a promise that if neither of us had dates we would go together just as best friends’. So we did, that night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step, I stared at her as she smiled at me, and stared at me with her crystal eyes, then she said “I had the best time, thanks!” and gave me a kiss on the cheek, I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends. I loved her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.
A day passed, then a week then a month. Before, I could blink. It was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel, up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine-but she didn’t notice me like that. And I knew it. Before everyone she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her. Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said “You are my best friend, Thanks” and gave me a kiss , I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.
I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. And drive off to her new life, married to another man… I want to tell her, I want her to know, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.
Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my best friend. At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years,
this is what it reads,
“I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn’t notice me like that, and I know it. I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love him but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why, I wish he would tell me he loved me!!! I wish I did too…” I thought myself, and cried”.

It had been raining for more than a week, so much rain it made everyday seemed so restless and gloomy. She called and said she was coming up. It was the third time she came up to see me that week. I carried her excuse of why she came all the way here and went to meet her at the nearby seven-eleven. She was standing there alone, carrying her red umbrella.Her friend had dropped her off. It was raining and she was shivering. She looked weak and fragile in the harsh rain, wearing not enough to keep her warm.She said, “I miss you.”
I told her coldly, “Lets go, I’ll take you home.”She did not open up her umbrella, I knew she wanted to share mine.

I said, “Open up your umbrella, let’s go.”

Unwillingly, She opened up her umbrella and walked with me to the car. She said she hadn’t eat lunch or dinner and asked if we could stop at some place to eat.

Right away I answered with a stoned heart, “No!”

Disappointed, she asked me to take her to the train station, she said she would take the train back home.

Maybe it was the rain, all the trains were full of people with umbrellas and suit cases who were eager to get home, not caring about who just passed by. We waited and waited, she looked at me innocently. Being together for so long, of course I knew what she meant. I understand how she must feel when she came all this way here in this kind of weather and I treat her like this. With her soft eyes staring at me, I felt guilt and wanted to let her stay for the night.

But reality struck again, I said to her coldly, “Let’s go try the other train station.”

We were living in the same apartment building, on the same floor. Back then there were four of us, and we got along well. We would always eat dinner together, watch movies, and sometimes go camping. We were more like a family, but I didn’t know I would end up falling in love with the only girl of the four. Maybe it was during the last year of college, having living together for two years, we developed deep feelings for each other. After she graduated she went back home, and I stayed for one more year to finish school. During that year I was only able to take the train down to see her on holidays, but never for long. That was how we kept the treasured relationship.

We were walking along the side of the road. She was in front of me and I was right behind her. Her umbrella had a broken spoke. She looked liked a wounded soldier, carrying her rusted rifle walking weakly. Many times, she was too into thinking or whatever she was doing, drifting off the road, she almost got hit by the cars passing by. I wanted to just take her in my arms, but with the love I had for her and the constant pain in my stomach, I did nothing. On the way, we passed by the park where we use to always go.

She begged and said, “Lets go in the park just for a little while please, I promise I’ll go home right after this.”

With her begging, my cold heart softened, but I still put up an annoyed face and walked in the park. I was just sitting on the benches looking like I wanted to leave. She went to the big oak tree and she was looking for something. I knew she was looking for what we wrote on that tree with a silver ink pen half a year ago. If I remember it right, it said, “Chris and Susan was here, Chris had tea and Susan was drinking hot chocolate. Hope Chris and Susan would always remember this day, always loving each other, forever.” She was looking around for quite a while, then she came back slowly with tears on her face.

She said, “Chris, I can’t find it, it’s not there anymore.”

I felt so sour inside, there was a stream of pain, flowing into my heart, the kind of pain I’ve never felt before. But all I could do was pretend I didn’t care, and said, “Can we go now?”

I opened up my big black umbrella, she was just standing there, didn’t want to leave yet, hoping there was still a chance. She said, “You made up the story of you and that other girl didn’t you? I know I frustrate you sometimes, but I’ll change, can’t we start over?”

I didn’t say a word, just looked down and shook my head. After that we just kept on walking towards the train station, didn’t say a word to each other.

Four years ago, the doctor said I had cancer, but it was found early, so it was still curable. Thinking that it was okay, I started living my normal life again, and even forgot about the cancer. I didn’t think about the cancer again and did not go back to the doctor. Until a month ago, my stomach was hurting for two weeks straight, and the nightmare awakened me again. First I thought the pain would go away, but it grew stronger until to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. I went back to the doctor and took an X-ray. The picture came out and there was a big black spot, which proved the truth that I did not want to believe. I was at the most glittering part of my life, but it was coming to an end. I wanted myself and the people around me to go through the least pain possible, so I decided to commit suicide. But I couldn’t let people find out about my intentions, especially Susan, the person I love the most in this whole world, who still doesn’t know about the truth. Susan was still young, she shouldn’t have to go through this. So I made up some stories and lied to her. It was a cruel thing to do, and it broke her heart, but it was the fastest way to wipe out three year’s feelings. I didn’t have much time, because I would soon start to loose hair and she would find out eventually. But now I’m close to succeeding, this drama would soon be over. Thirty minutes more this would all come to an end, that was what I had in mind.

The train had stopped running so I called a taxi for her. We were just standing there, waiting, loosing our last moments in silence.

I saw the taxi from far away, I held my tears and said to her, “Take care of yourself, take good care of yourself.”

She didn’t talk, just nodded lightly, and then opened up her misshaped umbrella and stepped out on the street. Out in the rain, we became two single life forms, one red, one black, so far away from each other. I opened the door for her and she got in, then I close the gate that would separate me from her forever. I stood by the car, staring in the dark window, at the first love in my life, also the last one, walking out of my life. The car started, driving into the street. Finally I couldn’t hold my sorrow and the twist in my heart any longer, waving my arms rapidly chasing after the taxi, because I knew, this would be the last time I see her. I wanted to tell her I still love her, I wanted to tell her to stay, I wanted to tell her so much, but the taxi had already turned in the corner. Warm tears kept falling down my face, blended with the cold rain drops. I was cold, not because of the rain. I was cold inside.

She left, and I didn’t get anymore of her phone calls even until today. I know she didn’t see my tears, because they were washed away by the rain. I left without regrets. But I’m not Chris, I’m that girl Susan, using my memory, and his diary I found after one year since he left, writing down these last words.

Hi BR! Am really touched by wat u told me, If only I could do smthing so that u can b together again… I can only pray for u, my dear frnd. Be courageous! Really, there r some people in this world that doesn’t know the value to b loved truly.

Once upon a time, my father had a girl friend who, he loved very much. But they were only very best friends. He always knew that she had another boy to marry. But my father and she were keeping talk with each others as much as they could.

But sometime she was telling, bad things about her fiancé, sometimes she was telling…

“I regret about my fiancé, I feel so sorry about myself, I never should have loved him, but I can’t do anything about this now, it’s too late”.

So…my father just listened to those sad stories and never asked her to give up him, and never asked the reason for not to love him or the reason about the regret. He always stayed calm nearby her, like a glacier. But he was crying in heart every time she talked like that. When they were talking, sometime she used to sing the tune of “To Love Somebody by Bee gees”. And she asked and told my father…

“Don’t you like that song? I like it very much.”

But my father never tried to listen to that song carefully or look at the lyrics of that song on that era. He just listened to that song like any other songs.

Though, things happened like that way, my father never asked from her. It’s because, he knew that her fiancé was rich than him. So he wanted to give better life to her. And my father thought, asking from her, while she was having a fiancé, was not ethical. He didn’t only really love her, but also he had a great respect about her.

When time passed one day she told my father that she is going to marry her fiancé and she cannot talk to my father any more but she wants to keep the true friendship, in her heart forever and asked my father to do so too.

My father never wanted to break up with her. At the same time he didn’t want to hurt her heart too. So he promised her that he never talks to her again, and he also promised to keep the friendship and her memories in his heart forever.

So after around fifteen years of this, he always used to ask from himself, did she love him ever? And did he do something wrong to her? Those questions were haunting in his mind always.

One day he listened to that song “To love somebody” accidentally on radio. Then he listened, very carefully every word of in that song. Then He cried a lot same as on the day which said good bye to her!!!
P.S: – now my father died. I had to read his almost all dairies to gather this scattered story to put together. (This emotional story was given by a friend & thought to share it)

The passengers on the bus watched sympathetically as the attractive young woman with the white cane made her way carefully up the steps.She paid the driver and, using her hands to feel the location of the seats, walked down the aisle and found the seat he’d told her was empty. Then she’s settled in, placed her briefcase on her lap and rested her cane against her leg.

It had been a year since Susan became blind. Due to a medical misdiagnosis she had been rendered sightless, and she was suddenly thrown into a world of darkness, anger, frustration and self-pity. How could this have happened to me?’ she would plead, her heart knotted with anger. But no matter how much she cried or ranted or prayed, she knew the painful truth, her sight was never going to return. A cloud of depression hung over Susan’s once optimistic spirit. All she had to cling to was her husband Mark.

Mark was an Air Force officer and he loved Susan with all his heart. When she first lost her sight, he watched her sink into despair and was determined to help his wife gain the strength she needed to become independent again. Finally, Susan felt ready to return to her job, but how would she get there? She used to take the bus, but was now too frightened to get around the city by herself. Mark volunteered to drive her to work each day, even though they worked at opposite ends of the city. At first, this comforted Susan and fulfilled Mark’s need to protect his sightless wife who was so insecure about performing the slightest task.Soon, however Mark realized that this arrangement wasn’t working – it was hectic, and costly.

Susan is going to have to start taking the bus again, he admitted to himself. But just the thought of mentioning it to her made him cringe. She was still so fragile, so angry. How would she react? Just as Mark predicted, Susan was horrified at the idea of taking the bus again. “I’m blind!” she responded bitterly. “How am I supposed to know where I’m going? I feel like you’re abandoning me.” Mark’s heart broke but he knew what had to be done. He promised Susan that each day he would ride the bus with her until she got the hang of it. And that is exactly what happened. For two solid weeks, Mark, military uniform and all, accompanied Susan to and from work each day. He taught her how to rely on her other senses to determine where she was and how to adapt to her new environment. He helped her befriend the bus drivers who could watch out for her, and save her a seat. Each morning they made the journey together, and Mark would take a cab back to his office.

Although this routine was even more costly and exhausting than the previous one,Mark knew it was only a matter of time before Susan would be able to ride the bus on her own. Finally, Susan decided that she was ready to try the trip on her own. Monday morning arrived, and before she left, she threw her arms around Mark, her temporary bus riding companion, her husband, and her best friend. Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude for his loyalty, his patience, his love. She said good-bye, and for the first time, they went their separate ways. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday…. Each day on her own went perfectly, and Susan had never felt better.

On Friday morning, Susan took the bus to work as usual. As she was paying for her fare to exit the bus, the driver said, “Boy, I sure envy you.” Susan wasn’t sure if the driver was speaking to her or not. After all, who on earth would ever envy a blind woman who had struggled just to find the courage to live for the past year? “Why do you envy me?” The driver responded, “It must feel so good to be taken care of and protected like you are.” Susan had no idea what the driver was talking about, “What do you mean?” The driver said, “You know, every morning for the past week, a fine looking gentleman in a military uniform has been standing across the corner watching you when you get off the bus. He makes sure you cross the street safely and he watches you until you enter your office building. Then he blows you a kiss, gives you a little salute and walks away. You are one lucky lady.”

Tears of happiness poured down Susan’s cheeks. For although she couldn’t see him, she had always felt Mark’s presence. She was blessed, so blessed, for he had given her a gift more powerful than sight, a gift she didn’t need to see to believe – the gift of love that can bring light where there had been darkness.

A girl in love asked her boyfriend.
Girl: Tell me. Who do you love most in this world?
Boy: You, of course!
Girl: In your heart, what am I to you?

The boy thought for a moment and looked intently in her eyes and said, “You are my rib. It was said that God saw that Adam was lonely, during his sleep, God took one of Adam’s rib and created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only when you find the woman of your life, you’ll no longer feel the lingering ache in your heart.”

After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while.

However, the youthful couple began to drift apart due to the busy schedule of life and the never-ending worries of daily problems, their life became mundane.
All the challenges posed by the harsh realities of life began to gnaw away their dreams and love for each other. The couple began to have more quarrels and each quarrel became more heated.
One day, after the quarrel, the girl ran out of the house. At the opposite side of the road, she shouted, “You don’t love me!”

The boy hated her childishness and out of impulse, retorted, “Maybe, it was a mistake for us to be together! You were never my missing rib!”

Suddenly, she turned quiet and stood there for a long while. He regretted what he said but words spoken are like thrown away water, you can never take it back. With tears, she went home to pack her things and was determined in breaking-up.
Before she left the house, “If I’m really not your missing rib, please let me go.” She continued, “It is less painful this way. Let us go on our separate ways and search for our own partners.”

Five years went by…

He never remarried but he had tried to find out about her life indirectly. She had left the country and back. She had married a foreigner and divorced. He felt anguished that she never waited for him.

In the dark and lonely night, he lit his cigarette and felt the lingering ache in his heart. He couldn’t bring himself to admit that he was missing her.

One day, they finally met. At the airport, a place where there were many reUNI0Ns and good byes. He was going away on a business trip. She was standing there alone, with just the security door separating them. She smiled at him gently.

Boy: How are you?

Girl: I’m fine. How about you? Have you found your missing rib?

Boy: No.

Girl: I’ll be flying to New York in the next flight.

Boy: I’ll be back in 2 weeks time. Give me a call when you are back. You know my number. Nothing has changed.

With a smile, she turned around and waved good bye.

Good bye…

One week later, he heard of her death. She had perished in New York, in the event that shocked the world.

Midnight, once again, he lit his cigarette. And like before, he felt the lingering ache in his heart. He finally knew. She was the missing rib that he had carelessly broken.
I’ve been living in my colony for 14 years now and he shifted in just 6 years ago right above my house. We used to talk in the beginning, everyone did. We would play hide and seek and sometimes have a cycling race but slowly as we grew older, according to society girls and guys could not just be friends. If I would ever say “Hi” to him or talk to him all the elders would gossip. Even though I was just ten and he was a year older than me his stupid friends would make fun of us and tease us if we even looked at each other and smiled.I never let go of the idea of trying to talk to him. But that had become tough as he just ran away from me every time he saw me. Apparently one of his friends came up with this theory that we liked each other and he was afraid that his parents would get to know. So every time we crossed paths or met anywhere else he would either turn around or just not talk to me at all. We were never THAT good friends also but it just annoyed me. To my unexpectedness as 3 years pasted he turned out to be very cute and had the most amazing haircut.

After a few months he added me as a friend on facebook and started chatting with me. I expected him to talk to me the next day or at least say hi considering the way he was chatting with me and for all that time we had spent behind the screens. But he didn’t. So i did. The next thing he did was criticize me, over chat, for saying “hi”. He told me that he didn’t want his parents to find out and didn’t want his friends saying things either. I was upset, obviously, but I didn’t say anything to him on chat or the next day or the days after that. We continued to chat and slowly i did develop a small crush but didn’t ponder over it too much.

I felt something from his side as well, but I wasn’t sure. Whenever I would go to the park i would try to wear my best clothes and try to keep looking at him, trying to give him a hint but there was nothing else i could do about it. I thought he got what i was saying or rather trying to say but apart from looking back at me he did nothing. My exams came up and i was more involved in my books. During that time things started to loosen up but i didn’t bother. After my results i noticed that he didn’t come online or in the park.

A month past but i saw only once in his car. I started to get curious so i asked a friend if she could get me his number. And she did. That night i did something i would never ever do again. I messaged him anonymously saying that i had got a missed call from his number. He called me back apologizing and said that he had never called this number. Then he asked me who i was. When i told him my name he just hung up. I was scared and felt stupid about myself. Then he massaged me saying that he was sorry for being mean and he told me who he was. He said we could talk this way now and it was good because it was more personal. I had never spoken to him verbally since our last hide and seek game but i knew he as the one. I actually wanted him. I did text massages him almost every day and he replied back. But I also wanted to talk to him. I mean verbally.

This carried on for about a month and then my dad had a heart attack. He was abroad and my mom had to go that night to be with him. I and my sister were all alone and she didn’t know. I was so sad and heart broken when my sister asked me where they had gone that I didn’t know what to say to her. I literally ran out of my house to the back garden and sat on a bench a cried my eyes out. My eyes were so hazy that I couldn’t see the person walking towards me. As he came closer I figured who he was. I whipped my tears and started to walk to the bench on the other end. Just then he grabbed my hand and hugged me. I couldn’t stop my tears. He held me and made me sit on the nearest bench and sat on the ground in front of me. He held my hand as i told him everything. He said he would do anything to help if he could and said i could call him at anytime of the night to talk or cry or anything. I didn’t know what to say. I just kept starring at him. I think he understood what i was trying to convey because the next thing he said to me was “I know, I like you too.”
P. S. – Inspired by true event
When I was six years old I met him in the playground and he came up to me with a daisy, just the one, and knelt on both knees and asked me to marry him. So I pushed him over then ran away. Two days later he came over and asked if he could play cops and robbers with me and from that day on we played everyday.At 11 on my first day of Secondary school I was so nervous but at lunch time he came to find me, and we sat down and ate lunch together. We did this everyday for an entire year. You were the first person I told about everything, about my crushes, about my lessons and about all the people I hated, and when I was 13 and thought I was the only one who had never been kissed, you offered to show me how, and by the tree in your back garden we shared our first kiss.

At 15 we went to our first proper house party, and I got drunk. Even though I made a fool of myself you were there to help me stand strong. You didn’t judge and you didn’t make fun.

Over the next year we began to separate, made different friends. I got my first serious boyfriend and you went through quite a few girlfriends. And then it got to May and that meant the prom. Everything had been arranged, I’d been getting my outfit for months and then the day before I found out my boyfriend had cheated on me. The first person I turned to was you. You turned up at my door with a bouquet of roses and a vintage 1950’s car.

I laughed that night, I cried that night.

We had three glorious years together, when everyday I would smile. Even on the last when your mother stood up, in the church in front of your coffin and began reading from your diary:

“I saw you when I was six stood by the bench in a blue checked dress and daisy shoes and I needed to give an other daisy just because…. Because i loved you from that day on”
Age of six he loved her so much and everyday he’d let her know “I love you grace”. But each day she’d just laugh and run away till one day she turned around and sat with him on the playground. And say…
“I’m sorry Chris I don’t love you you’ll find someone else who loves you too”

In the High school they met again and they laughed about the things back then they began to date and fell in love. he got the girl that he’d dreamed of. But when came to college everything changed they were far apart with lives rearranged.

“We’ll be fine grace” but she had doubt she turned and said “it won’t work out”.
“I’m sorry Chris I can’t love you, you’ll find someone else who loves you too”.
In their twenties they met again and they laughed about the things back then he took her hand and they began to dance remembering their old romance. Two years later she became his wife they’d be together all of their life.

They went on a drive, when it was no longer light they drove down the roads of the starry night the music came on she started to sing he whispered,

“Grace you’re my everything”.
But then suddenly in one big flash headlights shone as their car crashed he saw her laying down on the ground. he felt his tears start rolling down.
“Grace…” he cried she took his hand “I have to leave… Please understand”
“I love you so much it’s always been true but you’ll find someone else and you’ll love again too”
“No,” he cried “it’s always been you. I don’t want someone else I only want you”.

And there on that street is where he cried hugging his love as she slowly died.
