what is love?
for some it is a magical feeling one experiences when seeing someone they love to the point that they say they feel butterflies in their stomach.
love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. for me that person was jason blossom. it was love at first sight.
i opened my eyes and met his, it was magical. jason and I have been in a relationship for two months. every single second that I spent with him was heaven.
today was the day i was about to meet my boyfriends parents. I was a just an ordinary, middle class teenager and therefore, beyond terrified of his parents’ reaction.
a million questions were zooming through my head. i put on a lacy red dress, the one jason gave me as a present. suddenly i heard a noise coming from my backyard.
It was Jason's car. I hastily grabbed my purse and left my bedroom. He gasped as soon as he saw my outfit.
“Y/N? You look amazing!” i blush a little, unexpectedly my smile had disappeared.
“babe? What's wrong?” his hands were not placed on my waist.
“what… what if your parents don’t like me?” I stuttered.
“i don't care what my parents think about you. I will always love you, Y/N and nothing, I mean nothing, will ever change that.”
“What about your sister?” I said quickly he let out a deep sigh.
“She hates me, Jason!”
It was true, Cheryl honestly hated me. It was a classic. She was a popular girl, I was no one. And popular girls are mean, thats what makes them popular after all.
“You know what?! Let's just go. We don't want to be late.”
i slowly entered the massive, extravagant house of the blossom family. to be perfectly honest I didn’t expect anything less.
It was beautiful, but haunting at the same time. Suddenly, a tall, red haired woman approached me, smiling. She was wearing a long, black dress which made her look very slim. She was beautiful. She was Penelope Blossom, Jason’s mother.
“Jason? You made it?” She said and tightly hugged the boy.
“Mother, this is my girlfriend, Y/N.” He said while putting his hands on my waist. Her eyes were now all over me. I could sense the disappointment.
“Well, its nice to meet you, Y/N. Jason told me a lot about you.“ I returned the smile.
“Thank you fo…for having me, Mrs Blossom. You house is very beautiful” A small laugh escaped my mouth. I was extremely anxious.
“The dining room is this way.“ said Penelope "Follow me.”
jason took my hand and led me to the dining room. he sat me in a beautiful green chair taking the seat next to me. moments later the dining room door opened again and a tall, man stormed in.
Jason stood, following his moves you did too.
“Father!” Jason exclaimed and gave his father a hand shake.
“Hello Jason” He said as he shook back.
“And who may this young lady be?” He asked.
“Father, this is my girlfriend Y/N Y/L/N” He said gesturing to you.
“Ah yes! Y/N!“
Jason’s father said and he gave your hand a kiss. He sat down at the end of the table, the both of you sat after he sat down. Just few second later, a familiar girl came in. It was Cheryl.
suddenly, everything went black. My heart was racing. My chest was tight. Cheryl and I used to be friends back in the middle school, best friends actually, but all of a sudden, our friendship faded.
She became popular, she was THAT kind of girl who becomes a cheerleader, that girl who gets a hot boyfriend and rules the whole school. I was nothing, nobody knew my name, nobody cared. Everything was darkness and gloom until Jason just came into my life. He was different, he actually cared.
"Hey babe, you alright?” my lover asked i nodded in agreement.
“Come sit with us, Cheryl, darling. Jason's girlfriend Y/N is here.” said Mrs. Blossom. After what seemed like a minute, she sat down next to her mother. She was frustrated.
“So… Y/N…” Mr. Blossom started.
“Tell us something about your family.” He said while cutting some meat on his plate.
“Well…” I could feel Cheryl's eyes on me the whole time.
“My family used to own this oil company…”
“What happened?” Cheryl cut me off she was furious.
“Um… they had problems with this whole thi…”
“So they are unemployed now?” there was a long awkward silence.
“Yes, but, you see…" she smacked her hands against the table and let out a deep sign.
"Jason?” She asked her twin “A moment?"
Both of them excused themselves. I was confused, lost. I just wanted to be alone, In my safety zone. Where no one could see me. Mrs Blossom was just sitting there, staring at me. I suddenly started to feel very dizzy.
"Could… could you tell me where the bathroom is, please?" Mrs Blossom smiled and nodded.
"It’s right there, darling. Just take the first left." i returned the smile and walked away.
I could hear somebody talking. It was Cheryl. She was with Jason.
I decided to come a little closer.
"A Y/L/N? Jason?! Whats gotten into you?” She shouted.
“Cheryl, listen…” He tried to calm her down.
“No! J.J! Its unacceptable!”
“I love her, Cheryl” He halfwhispered.
I could feel my heart flutter.
“I love her and each passing second and each breath I take increases my love for her. And Whenever I feel lost, sad or defeated, I imagine her smiling and I instantly smile. She is the love of my life, Cheryl. And you are gonna have to accept that, sooner or later.”
A tiny tear escaped my eyes. I was touched by my boyfriend's words. At that exact moment, I felt it. He was the one. I quickly whipped my tears away and went back to the dining room.
After few minutes, Cheryl and Jason came back. Cheryl seemed somewhat different. She looked confused, lost.
“We should go, Y/N. It's time.” My lover said.
“But what about the dessert?” His mother gasped.
“Maybe next time, mom”
I quickly grabbed my red coat and my purse. I was ready to go.
“You should come back next weekend!” Said Mrs. Blossom.
“We can't promise anything, mother.” Jason said, smiling.
I kissed Penelope on a cheek and hugged Clifford goodbye.
Suddenly, Cheryl appeared right in front of me.
“Cheryl? What are you…?” I gasped.
“I came to apologize.” She signed.
“Look, Y/N… My brother loves you very much. And as his sister, i want to see him happy and he really is happy with you. I’m sorry, Y/N/N, about everything.” A small tear rolled down her cheek.
“See you at Pop's tomorrow? We have a lot of things to talk about. My treat!”
I nodded in agreement.
On that day, I not only discovered unconditional love, but also true friendship. So what is love? i finally got the right answer. There are many different forms of love: either love for your family, your relatives, your significant other, god… But the strongest and most beautiful form of love is friendship.
