Romantic love stories – magic moments
When you let your life slip past happy pursuit of happiness, all you need is a magical time to pull it all back to the reality of the Earth.
You may not have noticed this , but I think there are most shocking moments in the life of every single person .
And it’s often the little things and the little decisions that bring a big change.
And one thing that is more fun than all this put together is that the major changes in life usually happens when the past meets the present.
I’m talking about get-togethers , run into old classmates and other things that run along these lines.
The research of my young life
When I was a kid , I wanted to be a great record .
And when I was in college, I wanted to be the richest guy in the world.
And then when I was done with formal education , I decided to make some money. Unclogged all the empty dreams in my head and worked hard towards my dream true . Make money.
For me, at that point of time , it seemed an idea craft master . Really, who would think of money, all those who knew the job satisfaction.
I’d be the only guy who thought the money more than anything else , perhaps, just maybe I would be able to grow money on trees, while the rest of the world has sold their Ferraris converted to the monks , he took a year to Eat, Pray and love , look inside or just in search of job satisfaction in architecture as Howard Roark .
Now, a decade later , I know how wrong I was .
An encounter with the ghosts of my past and future
I am able to do what I wanted to do better. Make money. But along the way , I had lost everything that mattered most to me a good ten years ago. I have no friends , I had co-workers. I have not had free time, I played golf and talked business . They took off on vacation. Just around the world on business prospects. I became the only thing I was afraid of becoming .
I was a man who did not draw the line between work, fun and games. Still do not know how to sort my life and its various aspects . My work is my life and my life , my work .
Six months ago, I had a panic attack when I sat on the balcony of my hotel, after a meeting of very hard work . My mind was so full of thoughts, was driving me crazy . I could barely hold the cigarette in his hand, and I felt faintish . My heart ached , and my lungs could not take in more air . I was fine in a minute, but I’m close . I consumed some alcohol doubles , but I was totally consumed by work. I needed to change my life , before I lost everything. I had a personal life. I had no friends . I had achieved my dreams and everything that ever important.
I wanted my friends back. I felt like Ebenezer Scrooge from ‘ A Christmas Carol ‘ . The ghosts of my past and my future knocked on my door , in his own way .
The day I got home, I made a few calls to a few friends who had decided to still keep in touch with me. I thank God for that! And I asked them if they wanted to meet . At first they were shocked to hear that I wanted to meet , but then , plans were in full swing . We chatted by phone from high school kids , and our conversations , like any man stuck with his old friends , we were rude and crude .
The thrill of meeting
The boys took the rest of the program and decided to call in eight of our comrades BFF back from school for a reunion of sorts. I could not remember , and at that point, but first we had a knitting group of friends then , there were nine of us in all and we used to have a great time, all the time .
While lying in bed , I remembered all of our enthusiastic young faces on graduation day . We hugged each other and everyone made him promise that he would always keep in touch.
It took almost ten minutes to remember all the names of eight other people in my group. What a joke , right? It made me sick.
We had decided to meet that Saturday night , and the thought excited me . I was pretty sure I was the most excited of all. They did not know what this meeting , I mean, get together , it makes sense to me. I felt like my last supper . I was so afraid of dying alone. Stupid thought , however , I was still 30 and exercised six days a week. I lost my friends and I lost hours of talk and laughter . I was tired of being stretched and held for the entire time. I hated being on guard. I was tired of chasing the money. I just wanted to be free and not be judged. And only my old friends could help me .
Dragged through the week , kept busy by work and other meetings held out with partners. But deep down , I wanted to fly the week just past, and I wanted to go away, even if it was only for one night. Finally, after a long drawl , Saturday night finally arrived .
Reclaiming my life lost
Kicking my boots , threw on my robe and had a long cold shower. And for the first time in years , she wore a simple shirt and blue jeans. It had been nearly a decade and a half since I still had all of my friends gave it a second thought . I had no music , no images , no facebook account , no . I erased my past, because I did not want to have anything to do with it. That thought made me feel like shit.
I left my house alone at first, I did not have to say goodbye to a dog . Just go to flicker boobtube empty announced my exit . I took the time at the restaurant. I made sure that we went to this restaurant, where we used to hang out on Saturday, when we were in school. A shabby little town that was the best place in the world for me , then. I walked in and asked for a reservation. It was not necessary , there was no such thing as book tables at this restaurant. I looked all around the restaurant , and I’m scared.
I was not able to recognize them?
And then I felt a sharp stinging pain on my back. And then I saw a face that would have wanted. A friend ! A friend who recognized me . ” Jon , you bastard … ” cried Sam.
” Asshole, how the hell are you, friend …” I blurted out , without giving a second thought barbarism. We hugged each other , and for the first time in a long time , I felt the warm embrace of a true friend .
“They’re all on the road , my friend … are coming together. Shaun and Ali are recovering them .”
“This is cool … ” he replied without thinking too much . It felt good to see one of them. Of course he had no idea that meant to me to see him . We sat at a huge table and ordered beers. It had been a while ‘ since I tasted the beer.
We started talking and soon, we’re lost in a conversation. It seemed almost a minute or two had passed , it was actually half an hour when I heard a huge outcry from people who call my name. Faces, faces and new faces . And faces that slowly turns into those who recognized and knew him well . Something broke inside me, the pure happiness and joy , I was overwhelmed with gratitude and my throat went dry . I had difficulty swallowing , as each of them ran and threw my arms . It had been so long. And I was an idiot.
There was Shaun , Sam , Richard , Ali, Kimberly , Mary, and Great Britain. They all looked the same, only older. Still, I would not be able to explain the emotions that overwhelmed me that night.
” Tanya on her way , she is supported with something …” Kimberly has spoken to no one in particular .
A thrill of romance in every friendship
I got to know a lot of my old friends during these hours , minutes or seconds that probably we sat together. Some of them were married, had children, and one of them was busy, due to get married next month. I had been too busy to give a damn and I had given up on me anyway. But now, I wanted them around me more than anything else .
The rest of my friends were in contact and knew everything. Apparently, all of them made a point of meeting at least once a month . They had blocked the promise I made for them. I felt a bit ‘ of nausea and very guilty . I looked away without anyone noticing.
Some time later, a beautiful girl came in and waved off , toward us. All waved again, but to me.
” Jon … Omigawd … looks so different!”
Watched , stifling my misunderstanding , and then it hit me . It Was Tanya . Without the braces. Without the tail. Without her huge earrings outrageous. This Tanya was wonderful. This Tanya ‘s hair was long and beautiful. This Tanya air space closed. And that Tanya actually called me by my name . I could not remember a time when he had faced any other term, but ‘ idiot ‘ . He smiled as wide as I could. The words just had a certain importance in times like these . We hugged each other tight and started laughing at each other .
” You’re an idiot , you seem so damn different. And you look , do not bother to keep in touch with us , right?”
” Tanya … because … I’m sorry … Damn, you look so different …”
“Whatever , you idiot … Ok , I hope you guys ordered my drink … ”
Everything was so confusing to me when Tanya walked. I gave up everything that I lived in the pursuit of happiness , and again , I felt happier sitting with my friends at school, who have not made a big deal to meet. In fact I had left all my drift races and happiness of the road in search of something that I thought would be the only way to achieve happiness .
Tanya sat down beside me, and his hands were on my shoulder all the time . She did not think too much about it , but I did it . I do not know why. It seemed odd .
The beginning of a romantic love story
A hug was one thing, but Tanya ‘s hands on my shoulder made me feel happy discomfort. We sat up late at night and there was a time when there was silence . The dinners that I remembered were sober , quiet experiences with toast and happy conversations laced with ego. Here there was no ego, was blunt and brutal at times.
I laughed so hard my jaws were injured. I exchanged numbers with everyone, and we decided to meet next weekend . I did not want to be too excited to take that line, even though my heart ached to let them go . I had let down once . This time, I wanted to be the acceptor silent , that he would keep his promise. Soon, everyone had to go back and I bearhugged each of them.
” Richard , send me in my place. I did not have my car, I took a taxi ,” Tanya snapped to Richard.
I do not know how it happened to me, but I blurted out , “Hey, I drop , it’s cool . I have nothing to do. ”
“Ok … ay … If you say so … ” and she gave a cute smile with me. The boys too broad smile. Maybe they knew that there was something more than just stale beer in the air.
I’ve never seen a smiling girl in that way for me. I never felt my heart skip a beat before. I was so happy and intoxicated by their company , and once again , the presence of Tanya was doing more damage than all the others. We all hugged again, and Tanya and I got in my car. We talked all along the way , and soon, we arrived at his house. I just looked at her, of course you’re asking me not to come , I thought. She did not want .
” Are you busy? ” He asked without preamble.
” What do you mean … ? ”
” Well, it was a bit ‘ , and I’m free tomorrow, so I wanted to know if we can recover. The other guys are all meetings or pull on Sunday , and I’m not … then … free tomorrow ? Hey , wait a minute , are busy with your girlfriend or something? ”
” No … no girl! ” Stammered back, I do not know why I was babbling . I felt so out of control with her. I’ve always been in control all the time. Up until that time .
” All right, then , I come to your house tomorrow … ” he said, as walked out of the machine .
Came out too and walked toward her. We hugged for a long time , and it seemed . The back looked at me. We felt as if we were friends. The air was crackling with something that I could not explain.
“I missed you all these years . Though I never knew ,” I said as I looked into his eyes, ” … and you seem so nice. ”
And at that point , I swear to God , even in the dark , I could see her cheeks go pink . She was blushing ! He slapped my face lightly, and hands took their time to slip out of my cheek. ” Idiot … ” he smiled . Her smile was contagious. ” I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Magic moments to live the love
I went home with a mad force that I could not understand . I was in ecstasy . I was beaming at anyone who looked my way. I also smile a wildly COP at a traffic stop like an idiot. I was in love ? It ‘ been my friends ? Or was it Tanya ? Or is this the real happiness that seemed ? I did not know . Frankly, I did not care . Only in bed and stared at the empty space above me. My jaws hurt. Close your mouth . I was smiling all the way back home . The thought of Tanya’s smile still lingered in my mind.
I woke up early the next morning, I hardly slept that night , coming to think of this moment . Called Tanya , talked to her nothing in particular , for a couple of ‘ hours, and then , we decided that she would come to my house.
An hour later, he was at home . In my place.
She was really something that sucked all the light in the room. It ‘ was positively glowing , radiating like Claire Danes in Stardust. And she was beautiful. All of a sudden , all my expensive chandeliers seemed meek before this glorious aura that filled every corner of the room with a sense of happiness that I had never known . Even my furniture seemed to behave that way, everything looked much better around her.
She smiled . She smiled instantly. His smile was spontaneous , attractive, and again, so true. And definitely contagious.
We sat in front of the television and we talked for hours. We ordered a pizza and we spent the whole afternoon at home. He told me about his work and his ex . And he talked about mine. I kept my descriptions . In fact , there was not much to say anyway.
It was late afternoon , and the sun shone lazily through the thick glass panels that make up one side of my living room .
The cold glass was always pondered how I felt about my life, cold , hard and impenetrable. But today, as we sat together and staring at the sun , it felt warm. I could have stayed there forever , watching the sunset , and the birds take their last flight of the day. Tanya looked at him , turned around. And he smiled . I think she knew that I liked, but did not want to make a big deal out of it.
” You’re beautiful, Tanya . ”
She smiled again . ” Why Jon , thank you! ” He laughed again with a mock bow .
“We try to watch a movie , okay , I have a couple of good” .
“Are you sure … ” he smiled again.
I could not understand what was happening. I was with someone who had avoided in the past decade , and here I was falling for her in an instant. It was charming and attractive, she was beautiful and wonderful , synonyms and rhymes were not justice the aura that has infused into the air.
He picked up the movie “The Holiday ” . I had not seen . He did not either. I pulled the curtains closed and the lights dimmed .
The movie was great, and somewhere in the movie , there was this point when Jude Law , Cameron Diaz , realize that they are in love with each other. Remember that because it was around that point fingers when touched. I did not know what to do, pull back or be brave. She has not done anything. But I could feel the infusion of distress and happiness tingling at the point where you touched with your fingers. It seemed too much. We were both very stiff.
Moments and magical moments blur
A good ten minutes passed . Silence . The film was overshadowed in my mind. I could not concentrate . I do not remember breathing. But I felt something inside of me. And the feeling was intense . I wanted to keep Tanya in my arms .
It is sometimes encountered in your life when you want to do something and ‘ moment later , everything is a blur and you are doing what he wanted to do , regardless of the consequences ? This was my time.
I did not , but I turned to face Tanya . She looked at me . His eyes were saying something, but I was too lost to read it. Slipping his hand away from her. He seemed confused now . In the next instant, wrapped around her. Many were turned on flashes of thoughts in my mind that almost a second or two. So many emotions were running through my veins like never before . But when I hugged Tanya , everything disappeared . It was bliss. I was in heaven , lost somewhere in time and space that was warm and so full of love. I felt his hands move cautiously on my back , softly and deliberately , until you reach a point where they still firmly .
The weather was an ugly sight here . Nothing in the world was a consideration. Nothing mattered more . Just her. And for me .
His hands slid down, and as if on cue , I did the same . And then clasped her hands and looked into her eyes . I looked back , trying to read what you wanted to know. She smiled, as if he knew what I was thinking . He kissed me on the cheek.
He left a cold and blows again, spot on my face. I wanted to hear forever. I run my fingers through your hair soft , felt like threads of fine silk and the smell of cinnamon. We do not talk . But do not stop communicating . There was something in the air. And it was magical.
