A simple love story
Seven years ago, we both started as new students at our highschool... and I remember how we were both shy and didn't speak much to each other at first but a funny feeling stirred in my heart at our very first meeting. He was from a different part of the world, and I was intrigued by the gentle and quiet way he was- very unlike the rowdy and obnoxious boys that I felt highschool was too full of. For the first couple of years I knew him, we were not close friends but we were always fond of each other. When senior year arrived, I was plagued by a sudden and intense infatuation for him. Perhaps I realized that as graduation approached, I might never see him again afterwards. I never felt like this before, never felt like a hot fire rushing through my veins and cutting my breath short every time I thought of him. So I tried to cool down and focus on my studies and activities, and avoiding this very new feeling that was trying to control me. I was a young lady then, blossoming into her womanhood and was embarking on the pursuit of her dreams and I was not about to let some silly crush consume me. Up to this point, I was never interested in being in a relationship and would have preferred to sticking to my original plan- which was waiting to date after college. I tried to think as little of him as possible, but as days passed and we spent time here and there and our friendship progressed, I couldn't help but continue to fall more and more in love with him. He was the most beautiful person I have ever known... and he thinks the same of me.
To this day, I am still madly in love with him. To this day, I still get those butterflies or pangs in my heart just at the mere thought of him. In truth, we suffered many trials and ordeals in the years that we have been together, but all those pale in comparison to our love for each other. Ours is a simple love story because we are two very ordinary human beings who simply have eyes only for each other. He knows exactly how to make me laugh, how to cheer me up as I am a persistently and naturally melancholy and sentimental person... and each and every day, he brightens my life and never ceases to do so. Sometimes, I feel too fortunate for someone to love me so much... but if I may selfishly say, I wish to keep and cherish him forever.
