once upon a time there was a girl of about 18. she worked in the mall giving random strangers surveys. one day as she was hanging around outside smoking, she saw a group of guys approach. they were laughing and goofing around and at first didnt seem like anything special.
untill she saw him.
he looked at her and smiled and her heart melted instantly. it was like one of those cheesy romance movies that never happens in real life.
the 2 never spoke to one another but exchanged glances. the boys' bus arrived and they left the mall doorway and headed outside. one boy stopped and offered the girl his number,
'actualy, i think i really like your friend' she said. referring to the boy whos eyes met hers. he laughed, and gave her his friends number.
it didnt take long for both the girl and the guy to realize they were in love., they talked on the phone for weeks but she could not see him; he was in a juvenile center for troubled boys. there was no way they could be together.
one day they decided they were goin to be together no matter what. and hatched a plan to escape.
the girl arranged for a friend to drive to a gas station nearby the school where her love would meet them. and he did.
he escaped through the woods and got into the car and they escaped together.
as long as they were together nothing on earth could harm them. spent every moment together, blissfully entwined in each others arms. they slept in motels or abandoned house,s where they could find. it didnt really matter WHERE they were. they were happy just being together.
one morning they watched the sun come up, and he asked her to marry him. she acpeted. she swore she would spend the rest of her life with him.
they soon found a friend to stay with who would hide them out for a while. they sort of had a home of their own, and good friends there. it seemed like everything was perfect.
but down the road was the boy's jealous ex girlfriend. who apparently decided she didnt like to see the happy couple.. and did something about it.
one morning the girl was awakened to furious pounding on the front door. it was the police. they had found him, and they dragged him from the house while she howled in pain. 'no no dont take him away please!!'
and left her there, alone.
for weeks she couldnt eat or sleep. she became a chain smoker, sitting on the porch all day, lighting smoke after smoke, looking into the distance hoping, hoping he was coming home. but he never did.
she went to his court date and heard the judge sentence him to 1-3 years. she was devastated. 'wait for me' the boy pleaded. 'i love you, and i will come back for you'
and she did wait. and wait. and wait. sitting on the deck, staring into the distance.. hoping he would walk into her life once more. the time wasnt kind to her emotional state. nor his.
her roomate, the once thought friend who had taken them in, poisoned her mind with lies and treachery. she told the girl her love would soon be home! go out and wait for him! she she did, over and over, and he never came. She told her he called! you should wait by the phone he going to call back! but again, the girl was left with crushed hope, and shattered heart. she began to grow cold. she grew tired of being jerked around. so she packed up her shit and left.
unbeknownst to the girl, the boy had actualy been released, and was on his way home to her. but when he arrived, she was not there. she had moved in with an old friend from high school. she sent the boy a letter telling him she had moved... but since he had been released already, he never received this letter.
he went crazy when he returned home and did not find her.
he followed her to her friends house, but just missed her there too. she had already been kicked out.
she moved in with another friend. she managed to receive a letter from her love. an angry letter. the girl mistakes the letter for a break up letter, and goes insane. she trashes the apartment, breaks everything and rolls up in a screaming ball on the floor sobbing. the cops are called, and she is carried away.
the boy just misses her there too. hes hot on her trail all this time, but the cops are on HIS. hes soon apprehended, and sent back for another 6 years.
a this time the girl knew nothing about him being home, or tracking her down. she knew NOTHING. she blundered around blind in her own stupidity while her one tru love tried his best to find her. and ended up going back to prison for even longer BECAUSE OF HER.
for years and years she dreamt of this love she lost. no other man came close to he did in her heart, and no man ever will.
she eventually settled down, had a family, moved on. but he was always there, in her soul. always in the back of her mind. always wondering what happened to him? where did he go? will i ever see him again?
20 years later he finds her on facebook.....
