*Not all love stories end happily ever after*
Forgetting about someone you love is never easy, but with time, patience and a few intelligent coping strategies, you can emerge a happy, satisfied person once again.
It had been two days when Stevie broke up with Bianca. To say he was hurt is an understatement. He was broken into tiny little pieces that were not invisible. Not even a glue could mend his broken heart. He was so deeply in love with Bianca. Yes, It was a long distance relationship but like everyday he used to call her. Communication counted the most at his side. Never spent a day without talking to her. His father knocked on the door and Stevie had been sitting on the bed staring at Bianca’s picture with a vodka in his other hand. He got up, wiped his tears and opened the door.
“Son!” He gave him a hug.
“Dad! She betrayed me. I gave her my heart and asked nothing more and nothing less than that she don’t break it. My love and trust were all that I had given to her sealed with honesty. Was I not good enough for her? Was it the long distance? I used to call her dad everyday before I retire to my bed,” he sniffed.
His father broke the hug and looked into his eyes.
“Don’t you know that man don’t cry?” His father grinned.
“Shall I tell you something?” He went to sit on the bed with his father and continued, “I have only recently discovered,” He replied, not attempting to hid the tears rolling down his face and not the least bit ashamed of them. “Boys don’t cry but real men do.”
“My poor son,” he patted his back. “You see the heartbreak of a break-up isn’t permanent . We know it doesn’t feel like that it feels like you will never be whole again. That you can never be happy without them. But it’s not true son.”
“Am I going to move on dad?”
“You will move on. You just need time and a little TLC (Tender Loving Care) towards yourself. The best ways to leave behind the painful memories literally leave them behind. New sights, sounds and experiences stimulate the senses, making the pain of a break-up seem distant and unimportant. You won’t be driven to tears looking at the coffee maker you used to share each morning, that’s an example for you,” he explained.
They say, ‘Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage’. He was happy with her but she broke each and every promise they made together. Left him believing that, promises are indeed meant to be broken. Also being in love is like existing on another plane. When you are truly and deeply in love with someone, it’s as if there is no one else in the whole world other than the two of you. How ever there are many times, when we just don’t want to accent that we are falling madly, deeply and truly in love with this person. That’s exactly what Stevie felt. He had a fragile heart, not weak but when he loved someone. He would love that person deeply and unconditionally.
“Guess you right dad..but I am still sh..”
“You now drinking,” he cut him short after seeing two bottles of vodka on the floor.
“Soothing dad. Calming my nerves down.”
“Eeew, you stink. Go and take a bath. I will ask Adela to make you some breakfast.”
“Who is Adela?”
“New maid. Your mum was worried about you,” he said getting up to his feet.
“I will go bath and see her later.”
He went to the bathroom. The hot water of the shower did little to ease his worries. With nothing on his body he emerged from the bathroom to his room. Since the bathroom was next to his room. It was a mansion with so many bathrooms. Each room had it’s own bathroom. He stood in his room, naked. She yanked the door open and her eyes landed on his naked, muscular body. She dropped the wastebasket on the floor as her gaze roved over his body before finally meeting his eyes. She swallowed hard in an attempt to calm her racing heartbeat.
“Don’t you know how to knock?!” he shouted.
As he raised his brows in question a flutter of nerves took flight in her stomach.
“I I I am so so sorry, sir. I didn’t know this was your room,” she looked aside.
Startled, frightened by his voice, she banged her head on the door.
She couldn’t open the door. It was as if it got locked the moment it shut.
“I can’t open the door,”her eyes on the door not wanting to look at his body once more.
He walked to her still naked. Behind her she heard intake of breath and closed her eyes. Kept them close for about what ten minutes. He bumped into her while getting out of the room. She opened her eyes. Had she been lost inside her own thoughts and payed little attention on what was going on around her. Maybe she had froze in place. She quickly walked downstairs and boom their eyes met once again as he sat with his faming having their breakfast. She stared at him while stepping down. He winked and she stumbled and fell on the floor hitting her head really hard.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
“How long had I been unconscious?”
“Two hours,” he replied smilingly.October 25, 2018 at 4:41 pm #1266135Merit JohnsonParticipant

In business we have profit and loss, we smile when we make profit, we add more effort when we encounter any loss. That is how love is. You should just know that some ”loves” are not meant to lastOctober 25, 2018 at 5:10 pm #1266146ItzprinceModerator
