This is the story of two people. Let’s name them Amber and Kay.
Couple of years ago, Kay enrolled for a construction based study program at the local university. Being skeptical about the first day, he managed to drag his bum to the class. As he opened the door, his eyes laid on a girl sitting quietly in middle of the room. As he took a few steps, the girl turned her gaze towards him and a faint smile appeared on her face. Kay’s heart filled with a feeling never felt before. He went and sat just behind her, hesitating to break the ice. The program coordinator came in and did her stuff. Few minutes later whilst everyone was leaving; Amber turned around and said “HI”. Kay grinned…from ear to ear.
“Hi. I’m Kay”
“Hey Kay, Amber.”
From there began a three years long “friendship”. I’ll label it as such because somewhere, both felt it was more than just friendship…it’s just that none of them mustered the courage to take the step. It was as if both were connected. They understood each other, finished each other’s sentences. There were times when one didn’t even speak and the other one knew what was on the other’s mind. One day Kay entered the class and as he sat down he said “Ohhh crap”. Just “Ohhh crap”. Amber turned around and said “You forgot your calculator at home…didn’t you?”
“Yeah…how did you know?” replied Kay.
“I kind of knew you would so I brought one extra for you”.
That was the kind of stuff they would do during three years.
After three years, still fearing to take the step, they each moved on with their lives as graduates. Couple of months passed by and one night Kay realized how much he misses Amber. So he grabbed his phone only to notice that Amber was online.
With a racing heartbeat, he messaged “Hey…not sleepy?”
The replied that came broke him…”It’s still day time here…I moved to Vancouver few months ago”.
“Why?” Kay replied.
“I waited three years for you…I really thought you felt the same way I felt about you. But after three years I gave up and moved on…away from you…away from all my feelings”.
“But I liked you too…why didn’t you tell me?”
“Well…you didn’t either…and it’s too late now. Goodbye Kay”
The hardest goodbyes are the ones that you know will never be followed by hello again!!
Life is short…don’t hesitate…you like someone GO AHEAD AND TELL THEM before it’s too late!
