A boy and a girl were tied by the knot of fixed marriage. Though, they don’t love each other, they can’t just get out from that miserable arrangement. They don’t have a choice. So the least thing that they could do is to be with each other.
Unconsciously, the girl just found herself falling for the guy. She just can’t fight it. But things just become more complicated because the guy loves another girl. The girl thinks that whether the guy would know about her feelings or not, it won’t change the fact that the guy loves someone and he can’t love her back. The guy and the other girl used to see each other often. But since they were both compromised by the arrange marriage, the guy just can’t leave the girl alone. He made a choice that would definitely left his heart broken. He left the other girl. He stayed by his wife’s side.
Who would have thought that the guy will be in love with his wife? Yes. They now love each other. They seem happy with each other’s loving arms.
One day, the guy met the other girl. After long years, they meet again. With no words spoken, the guy felt confused. At that moment, he got confused by his feelings. His heart skip a beat when his eyes lay upon the other girl and flashes of memories with her just came back rapidly. And somehow, he missed the feeling.
And then, he thought he still love her.
He didn’t know what to do. He loves his wife very much but she can’t just handle the feelings that the other girl brought to his veins. He can’t stop thinking about her. About the what if’s. About the things that they would probably doing if their still together. It feels like a lifetime torture. He never wanted to hurt his wife’s feelings.
Then, realizations hit him. He might still love the other girl. Or maybe the memories that they’ve shared but not the person herself.
But he loves her wife very much. He was in love with his wife.
“I love you” is different from “I’m in love with you” – am I right?
Have you heard about the dead stars?
According to Mr. Webster, stars are fixed luminous point in the night sky that is a large, remote incandescent body like the sun. They were basically travel through thousands of light years. And as they travel through these thousands of light years, stars gone dead. Before they could reach their destination, they were dying.
Many of us were fascinated by the beauty of stars, but, in reality, the beauty itself is not there anymore. The light that they possess remains when they died. That’s the very reason why we think they were still there, shining so bright and feels so alive – even if they weren’t any longer.
Just like in this story – in love.
Sometimes when we saw the person that we previously loved, we got confused. Our heart raced. Memories keep on flashing. Questions running into our minds. And the worst is we’re ending up making wrong decisions. Letting go the person that we love in the present and everything. But it was purely absurd. We must not let our hearts overrule us, because our hearts get easily deceived. In times like this, we were blinded by the memories that we’ve shared with them. The promises that we have made. That promise of loving each other till the very end. We were blinded by the idea of love. We sometimes thinks it was love when in fact, we were just in love by the idea of being love.
Just like the stars, we generally think that they were still there, so near, yet they were not. They were all just dead stars.
Thanks to Dale’s friends, Jez and Ivan for sharing these thoughts. Making me realized something. Ooooops, I know, someone can also relate herself with this. Hello, Regine! Hahaha 😀
