So she asked him, “Is that her, the girl that you have been dating since long, there, I finally get to meet her”. They were in a relationship for 5 years and they could read mind and hearts looking at each other. But this time when she passed by him the feeling was gone, and the connection seemed lost. It just felt different. Standing tall and looking at the floor he suddenly realized he was being asked a question Little confused and coming back to reality he gave it a thought and said – “Yep, she is the one that I am crazily in love with. I have never felt the way I feel for her and the charm is still there. I don’t know what do I call it but it’s the feel which I haven’t experienced with anyone before”. She must be quite lucky, she said as she walked by.

While he was on his way home, he wanted to reason the differences. He wanted to get things the way they were, at least giving it a try which he had not since months. She had stood by his side each time that he wanted her around and they were fond of each other but the only part that made them apart was the distance. They lived in two extreme poles, things were absolutely right at the start, and as time went by they got really busy shaping their career. The time difference was killing them. The worst was they always thought that long distance would work and gave in tips saying everything is possible when you are far across. It not only seemed an easy advice but they believed in it. To stay connected, you just have to follow two rules – give in the same space to each other and be expressive is what equalizes the same thought process. Both of them had the same principle towards love. They had the same rule. When it came to their love story the latter did not work.

He was the inexpressive one; always said – the one who understands me completely knows me in and out. Irrespective of that he put in his efforts while they were away. He went out of his ways and made her feel really special, he did things that he never thought he would, and he had changed, changed completely. Was it love or was it her?? Like any other girl she loved the attention around, she loved the princess treatment, she loved the distance. He wanted to grow old with her and he wanted to live together forever. They were totally crazy in love and the amazing part was he never thought it would be possible being so far.

She was very nervous since it was a start of a new journey, a new life. She had no idea what will happen, how things would shape up. She had that weird feeling that anything she would eat/ drink would make her nauseated. She exactly knew what was happening to her. It happened each time when she started with anything. The firsts in her life were etched in her heart. “What are you thinking Sherlyn, you must be really excited” said her mom sitting next to the window and enjoying the view on the bus that they had boarded to Miami. A tall blonde lady with the perfect curves and curls falling right on her shoulders. She didn’t look her age and people would mistake them for sisters. While they were flying once, the immigration officer said to Sherlyn “You both look so similar, it must be hard for your parents to recognize” Sherlyn was dumb-stuck and did not know how to answer back. The passports would just get it sorted, she thought. She just grinned and that look on her face was full of wickedness, she walked off. She always knew that her mom had the spotless skin ever, and the fashionable diva that she was, she could turn heads around each time she passed. Sherlyn looked more like her dad with sharp features, amethyst color of her eyes were loved by all and the waves and bounce in her hair from the arms went well with her body structure. Sherlyn was the ideal example of beauty with smartness. She was a charmer, the vivacious quality of hers and the way she could be anyone and everyone’s sweet heart was a talent that she was born with. Her eyes were so expressive and her face was equally easy to read.

The bus halted on the next stop and the next half an hour drive would be their destination. There were different race of people, and how travelling gets everyone together was the topic of discussion within the elderly who had just met and became friends in such short span of time. They were sitting in front seats and the other co-passengers thought that they were all going for the same reunion.

Sherlyn was thrilled for her first year of college but being away from the people who cared for her most and who had been there for her all the time, wouldn’t be around. She was pampered by her granny, being the first grandchild, in their family. She was lucky to have such wonderful people in her life and she felt blessed to have such amazing parents. She never wanted half an hour drive to end and a part of hers was imaging the first scene when she entered the gates of her college, where she would be spending the best years of her life. “Mom, I am going to be just fine and Miami is not that far away, I will come visit you every year. You can send me gifts and you guys can surprise me. And yes, I totally know what you are going to say- Prioritize your studies more than anything!! I will make you proud Mom” Sherlyn said. There after saying that she gave a tight hug which …read more
