She was an
average girl or may I say, an average 23 year old woman. He was a 26 year old
man. A man that could have any other female but yet he stuck with her. Or she
stuck with him? She had the chance to let go, but she didn’t. He believed him
when he said he was sorry when in reality she could let go and find someone
else. Someone new. Someone better. People would laugh at her though. She had
the Spanish international football player and she would want to let go?
“She must be insane if she let him go” that’s what
her aunt said three years ago on Christmas dinner when she was helping her
other aunt to clean the plates. Then her other aunt would say something like “If
she thinks no one else is going to cheat on her then yes she is insane. He is
the best she can ever have. No one will ever be able to provide her all the
stuff he does. With all the money he gets, he can save his family, her, her
family and he can even help us as well.”
This is how
it was. Her family members would always see pounds pictured across his face.
They even believed that she only wanted him for his money. And they were fine
with it. They also were fine with the fact that he cheated on her. See, money
in their lives were much more important than her happiness. She did go back to
him though, a year later. Not because they told her to, or because she agreed
with their opinion, but because she saw the regret in his eyes. She saw how
sorry he was. She saw how he changed through a whole year they were separated.
The day she
left him was Christmas eve. The end of the year was near and he wanted to be
honest. He believed that she would forgive him. He didn’t think she would be
okay with it, but that she would appreciate his honesty. Three weeks ago he
visited Spain on a weekend getaway where he slept with one of his old school
friends. He was drunk yes, but not drunk enough to not be able to control himself.
He was driving her to the airport that day. She was going home for Christmas.
She would take the bus back home but him being the perfect boyfriend, he wouldn’t
let her take an endless bus journey when she could be back home in a matter of
a few hours. He felt the need to talk to her about his actions killing him.
the volume down of the Christmas song that was playing. She stopped her singing
and looked at him wondering why he would turn the volume down. He said he
wanted to let her know about something before it was too late. She listened to
him trying to figure out what it was that had to ruing their so movie-like journey.
He said what it was. He said he was sorry. All she could say was “just drive”.
She wanted to get to the airport as soon as possible. She was about to burst in
tears and she fought it until the moment they got to the airport.
He made a
move to hug her, if not kiss her, goodbye. She took a step back and shacked her
head in disbelief, hot tears running down her face and an ironic smile placed
on her face. What did he expect anyway, him, she just found out that her
boyfriend of a whole year, cheated on her, at the age of 20. His last words
were “At least text me that you are safe back home.”
That was the
last time they saw each other for a year. The next day, Christmas day, after
she heard her aunts made her make her biggest decision. She disappeared. For a
year, no one knew where she was and what she was doing. She only kept contact
with her parents and a few of her friends, to let them know she is okay. Of
course, they would all ask for information for where she was or even when she
was coming back, but she would never say anything. Until next Christmas, when
she went back home. At the airport? She met him. He was coming back to London after
a weekend in spain again. It was strange, exactly a year ago it was the last
time he saw her.
He did look for her. But how can you find someone who doesn’t
want to be found? When he saw her again it felt like the universe was giving
him another chance. Even if he still didn’t know that SHE would give him
another chance. He asked how she was, she said she was fine. She looked
different but so did he. He looked more mature, she looked more broken, more
empty than even before. He smiled at him though so he took the courage to ask
her to meet him sometime so they can talk. He didn’t expect her to agree but to
his surprise she did. And here they are, two years later they are still
in with him, he took care of her and he never ever laid his eyes on another
woman. Everything was fine until the past few weeks. He seemed distant. He
would come home more late than ever before. And without an explanation. She wouldn’t
say anything though. She was never the person who would complain. She kept
everything to herself. When he would come home, he wouldn’t say much. He did
talk to her, it’s not like he ignored her but it wasn’t the same as before. Not
to mention the constant secret texting and email sending. She didn’t want to
believe that he is cheating again but yet again he didn’t give her any option.
One day she
came home from work, another day her boss had been rude to her, another day
where he humiliated her in front of every other coworker. All she needed was
her boyfriend’s comfort. She got home when he was on his phone, as soon as he
noticed that he wasn’t alone anymore, he ended the call.
your day?” he said and walked to the kitchen, no hugs, no kisses.
She said and followed him to make herself a tea. He said that he was glad. If
only he knew what she meant with “as always” and was going on at her work
place. She could have told him before but he never gave her the chance as he
was barely around her the past few weeks.
He sat on a
stool and she took a seat for herself in front of him. His eyes were locked on
his phone typing as always. She didn’t want to believe that he would be such an
ass to sit here, in front of her while texting someone else. She decided to
talk about how her days at work have been lately.
we talk?” She looked at him and waited for his answer, he asked her to give him
a minute, without even looking at her. Eyes still on the iphone screen.
minutes passed. Six. On the seventh, she got up, threw her tea cup in the sink –
might have broken it as well – and made her way out of the kitchen.
that for? Seriously I don’t even know. The fact that for weeks now you barely
talk to me? The fact that you come home as late as possible only for you to eat
and if not play same stupid game you go straight to bed? Or maybe that you keep
being on your phone talking to god knows who while I’m here literally begging
for a word to come out of your mouth, even that would be “Shut up”.” She threw
her hands up in the air while she felt her eyes watering up.
what it looks like. I promise it’s not.” He said and walked close to her.

talk about it.” He can’t talk about it. The perfect answer to make her pick her
jacket and make her way out. “Babe don’t do that please I promise you it’s not
what you think it its! Trust me. A few days and I can explain. Please.”
me alone. I just want to be alone.” She walked out of the door. He didn’t follow
her. He knows better than that. She needed her time alone. Him following her
would make things worse.
follow her until he heard it. The annoying sound of car brakes. He didn’t know
what made him look out of the window but he did. And what he saw was enough for
him to run as fast as possible. He wrapped his arms around her passed out body.
He let pointless sounds leave his mouth. He was screaming. The driver had
already called an ambulance but it seemed it was already too late. Her
breathless body covered in blood was being shaken by her boyfriend, as if his
screams and his arms shaking her, would bring her back to life. As if he could
love her back to life. As if she was just playing a game trying to scare him
off and she would soon open her eyes.
But she didn’t.
You can’t love someone back to life. You can’t turn back time. If he knew what
was coming, he would have explained that exact moment she asked him. Because he
was right. It’s not what she thought. It was far from what she thought.
But now she
was gone. He lost her. She asked him to leave her alone, and it turns out he is
the one left alone. What she never found out, was that all this time, he was planning
his proposal along with a surprise wedding. If only he was more careful and if
only she was more patient and if only she trusted him, she would have been
here. She would have been here and married to him in three days. But she was

He used to be a confident guy.
The funny one, the loud one, the life of the
party with a permanent smile on his face who was always guaranteed to
produce a laugh, an assured smile and a witty comment.
