Whatever Happens Life Moves on


Whatever Happens Life Moves on
by.A.Priyangah

                The day had finally arrived the day that Jenni was waiting for nearly two to three years. She woke up at dawn, dressed in her best dress, and drove by herself to the airport. Someone special was coming today. Very special.....The person she loved ......Mike.
                As she drove, she had a smile on her lips. She was thinking the wonderful moments they had together.
                Mike’s dad and her dad were partner at business. So naturally the families were close. Mike was her elder by an year. Her early memories were of hatred toward him. How funny, she thought.
                I had even hated him once.
                He used to always tease her. It made her angry. Real angry. She remembered her mother recall something about their childhood. Once she hated him so much that she refused to go to school for a week just because he was attending the same school as hers.
                But it had all slowly changed. The mike she so much hated, turned into an handsome, young man. He was the spects captain at high school. All the girls begged to be his girlfriend. It surprised Jenni to know, she instead of despscing it, felt jealous.
                It did not take long for mike to realize it too. They slowly stated to each other formally, then acquaintances, friends and finally. . . . . . .
                It was valentine’s day, Jenni was lying curted in her bed crying. Mike had told her that he was going to propose the girl he loued. He had not called all day. It was evening. Jenni was sure it was cherry, the school Beauty.
                She knew that cherry loved mike too.
                Phone call. Jenni’s heart was beating fast. She was 100% sure it was mike.
                She picked the phone.
                ‘Hello’, she was trembling.
                ‘Hello, Jenni’, it was Mike. Jenni was almost crying in happiness.
                ‘Yup, Mike, what’s up?’ Jenni could not the hide the excitement that lubbled in her voice.
                ‘I need some help, Jenni. I’m afraid. Only you can help me. Will you?’ said Mike/
                Always Mike. What is it?
                ‘I’m scared to propose her, Jenni, the girl that I told you. I can’t just tell those words to her I’m afraid of rejection what do I do?’,
                Jenni’s world has shattered at those words she forced herself to remain calm. She had hoped that he would love her too. But, who was she kidding? Mike would never belong to her. He loved someone else. She said slowly.
                ‘Listen, Mike. It’s nothing. Be cool.’
                Don’t be silly, No girl Would ever tell no to you. Just tell her, she’s really lucky and I’m sure she would be really really happy with you, Just tell it.’
                Alright, Jenni. As you say, I love you’.
                ‘What?’
                ‘Ya, I love you, You’re the Girl, Jenni You’re the one. Do you love me?’
                Jenni could still remember the moments as fresh as they were then of course, she said yes and they chatted all night long. They spoke about everything and nothing.
                In the morning, Both of them were incredibly in love with each other.
                The days were all amazing.
                Their parents knew it all along and they did not object. They couldn’t have expected better.
                They stayed together almost all the time. Every minute they could space, they saw each other, walked with each other, about each together.
                They grew up together. But fate had something else in mind, mike waited desperattly to do MBA.
                The opportunity came, but far away. In a University called Berkelyn in Australia.
                He had to go. It was how for Jenny to leave him. Both had cried on the day of depature.
                ‘I promise I’ll be back soon’
                His last words were still ringing in her ears.
                There years. The word ‘soon’ meant three years.
she was waiting for almost an hour.
                But it did not matter to Jenni, for she had waited for 3 years, what it do to wait for an hour?
                There he was Mike. She could b                ravely recognize him. He had grown hair and styled it in spikes. He had even pierced his ears. As much as was surprised, she was happy to be at his side again.
                Mike hugged his parents and then came to Jenni. He had a puzzled expression on his face. The smile faded from Jenni’s lips. He does not know who I am.
                He hugged her. ‘Hi, Jenni you turned beautiful’
                Jenni was taken aback by his hug but smiled and hugged him back.
                How could she think so stupid?
                How could like forget her? After all he loved her.
                Early the next day, Jenni went to Mike’s home. He was still sleeping. She sat in a chair near his bed, watching him sleep.
                Beneath all those horrible makeup and hair, he was still the same old Mike.
                ‘every day form then, Jenni went to see him, to talk him. But Jenni was in for a surprise, or more a shock.
                As much as he looked like the old mike, he had changed.
                He talked with her, hugger her, spent time with her, but there was no love.
                It was like, he did everything because he had to do it.
                Jenni only could remain helpless. Mike chatted all night, all day with his friends in Australia. He constantly told Jenni how hot the girls were and modern.
                He even asked her to change her old fashioned ways of dressing and looks.
                It was like, he wanted her to change if she had to be with him.
                Mike look his father’s business. For Jenni, he seemed to have matured a lot. It look Jenni a long time to realize that the person she once loved was gone.
                The person now with her was a complete stranger to her.
                Of course it took months to accept the reality, but she had finally accepted the fact that, this mike did not belong to her.
                She stopped seeing him, going to his house and he never bothered to even think of Jenni.
                And slowly but finally, Jenni learned to Move on in life, Putting her pasts behind her.. . . .. .
