Life’s too unpredictable. Even if you try your best to be on guard, destiny still gets the best of you.

Only If I Had a Second Chance

It was already half past midnight and it was my 10th peg of Whiskey. I had decided earlier tonight to be with my very close friend, so already had informed my family about it. Boozing that night with only tears in my eyes, I obviously wasn’t in a happy mood.

“Come on dude, you already have drunk 10 pegs now, it’s about time you stop for a while. Get over it buddy, there’s nothing you can do to change it now.”

I listened to my buddy, and stopped drinking for a while. “Why can’t I change anything now? I have been so stupid. Already my life was a mess, but now, I have lost the one person who still was by my side.”

For last few days, my relation was kind off IN A MESS. In 5 years of love, this was the first time I was in such crisis. We had many fights recently. “Was it my fault?” I was not in a state of mind to think to say the least. I made her cry many times, even I got sad, but then fed up. But, what I had done was UNFORGIVABLE.

We loved each other a lot. 5 years, had many happy moments. But for some time, she was staying far from me. And I had a job, with which I was very happy. Some misunderstandings of me being with my ex lover, perhaps rumored by her jealous friends led all the fights continue.(My ex lover was my colleague in my department for a year now and already we were been promoted together)  I tried my best to make it to her, but it was like I was screwed, how I don’t know still.

But want later happened was I SCREWED MYSELF. 5th August 2012, Friendship’s Day, my ex, perhaps my best friend since childhood had come to meet me. I was happy to see her, for I shared most of my problems with her. And of course, she knew my current problem. She quite understood me ever since I was a kid.

“Why this is happening to me? All the time I try and am loyal, but all she does is doubt me. I am tired of it, I can’t take it anymore.” I said in an angry voice.

“Come on Kai, don’t let your anger go to your head. I am here now with, I’ll explain her everything. It’s gonna be all right.”

“Are you sure about this?”

“Yes dear.”

She gave me a hug, which felt so nice and warm. I was happy, for at least one person understood me properly. I don’t know what happened and how it happened, but in the state of excitement and happiness, I eventually was kissing her lips. “Wow, it’s been so long since I felt that taste on my lips.” But, this wasn’t right, we both moved a bit behind. I was SHOCKED, for she was STILL THE SAME, SMILING. She held my hand and said, “No need to say anything Kai, don’t worry, you’ll be fine.”

“YEAH, WHY IT WOULDN’T BE KAI, YOU GOT YOUR OLD LOVER BACK!”

MY GIRLFRIEND WAS HERE. In all this melodrama I had forgotten that I was not in my room, but in my garden with my ex, looking at us both, she burst out of tears and went back. As much as we tried to stop her, she didn’t. On my way back, still figuring out what just happened, I saw a gift on the ground. I opened it. It had a letter and a photo album. I opened the letter first.

“I AM SO SORRY DEAR, I HAD BEEN SILLY AND SO CHILDISH WITH YOU FOR SOME TIME NOW, BUT YOU STILL MANAGED TO BEAR IT FOR ME. I SHOULDN’T HAVE DOUBTED YOU EVER. I LOVE YOU. :* :*

Reading it, I burst into tears. My ex lover/friend still stood by me, trying to make me feel better. But, it wasn’t her fault too; I just let my emotions get the best of me. And now, here I am, in the dark alone, hoping to get a ‘SECOND CHANCE.’

    How touching. You will get it. I never knew how men were feeling…never could figure it out completely. Strange but sometimes we forget how pained the guys can get. Hope things heal! :)

    You are only human. We all make mistakes such as these. Did you ever get a second chance?
