I once dated this guy. It was for all of two months,and ended because apparently he cheated on me. (later I discovered that he didn't. But that's another story) We were in primary school together. He was the guy who I always wished I was better friends with. We did start talking at some point,but we rolled with different crowds so nothing really happened outside math class. I remember watching him dance at Leaver's Bash and wondering how different he was from the quiet guy I knew,which just made him even cooler. Especially because he was a good dancer.
I also remember his dad dying when we were in class 8. By then we were in different classes,so my class didn't go for his funeral. I remember him losing weight. He went from chubby to lean in all of a month.
We went to different high schools as well. I would always send my friends to say hi to him. He rarely said hi back,though. After high school,I met him at 20th randomly one day and we hit it off again...his smile was still as entrancing as it had always been. We would take long walks and pretend to be watching Lord of the Rings,and on that New Year's Eve,I had someone to kiss who didn't want me to go home.
After we broke up,I stopped talking to him. It hurt,and I was joining uni,and I met someone else,so I just...stopped. I deleted his number,but I knew it by heart. Then maybe a year later,his mom died. I called him to offer my condolences. He avoided the topic like he was fine,so we pretended he was fine and didn't talk about it.
Another year passed. I met him at the club,drunk,saying he was sorry for everything he'd ever done to me. We made out. It was the same,it was different,but still magic. The next day I found out he still had a girlfriend,and confronted him about it. We started talking again. Three weeks later,he died. At his funeral,I didn't look at his girlfriend. The stupid pastors kept telling his sister that she would not die,that they would pray and lift the devil's hand from her family. I wanted to set them on fire,if only to bring him back.
Do you believe in Fate? Love? Curses?
