A young boy is lying on the grass in a field where he fell in love and his heart shattered. How long ago was that he wondered? He laid under the Sun to reminisce what happened in his life.
Luscious green grass glistening under the golden sun. A cool breeze brushes by two young friends, who had only recently met. They bonded almost instantly. He thought it was everlasting. He fell for her. His feelings were pure and true. The only thing is he couldn't remember her face.
Whenever he looked back he would see a silhouette and feel his heart pounding out of his chest. He remembered the first kiss the weather was like it was today. He remembered her sweet smell of her perfume. Also the first “I love you.”.
The boy frowned a tear shed down his face.
Why has she forsaken him with such a cruel curse and abandon him like he was nothing?
Many questions cloud his head. Why him? Why did she choose him? When did she come? Where did she go? Also, why did she leave him all alone? These questions will forever follow him. He missed out on a normal life. He now has to hide and can't go to the same place twice.
One more thing that hit him was the words he remembered and the last conversation they had.
He told her he will forever love her she said something strange.
“Forever you say? Well that brilliant how about we start forever today?” she left him soon
Days turned into months and months turned into years that they haven't spoken.
The young boy decided it was time to leave when the Sun set. He is ready to hide in the shadows once again. Then he walked passed an old lady with smile on her face she remembered the boy from the last of her youthful days. The one she kissed on a sunny day and when she was finally free from being forever youthful. She gained his trust but not by being truthful. Now he walks passed not having a clue. That she was the silhouette he will forever remember.
She doesn't regret what she has done to him. Now she's has an ever growing family. If only her siblings and her parents could see her now. She wished she passed the curse on sooner. She still resented the man who passed it on to her. Not realising how hypocritical she was being. The curse was passed on in a similar way a kiss and promising forever. After that day she always chose her wording carefully. After a century passed she found a handsome young man. They bonded very quickly.
She remembers the luscious green grass glistening under the golden sun. A cool breeze brushes by her and her victim, who she had only recently met. She made it seem like they bonded quickly. She knew this love affair would end today. She knew he fell for her and that his feelings were pure and true. The only thing she has is a picture to remember his face. Her hero and her victim. The one who saved her from loneliness by sacrificing his future.
Not too long after she found the love of her life. Traveled the world visited many countries twice.
She married and had many children who then grew and married then started their own families. She had a joyous life which she thought could never happen. After looking through old pictures, she found the picture she took with the man who freed her. Looking back and realising how she lived near the place they first met. She sat on her rocking chair watching the Sunset giggling to herself.
When the young man walked passed all the memories flood back and how she sees herself in him. However, he didn't seem depleted. In fact he seemed to come to terms with it all. Which made her jealous that he is not suffering like she did. Then she remembered that it could've been him living a life like her. That was punishment itself, which relieved her. Now she wanted to talk to the young boy who she met so long ago. To see how he really felt.
She called out to him which shocked him. He felt weird how an old lady was randomly wanting to talk to him. He has been ignored for as long as he could remember. To be polite he just nodded and smiled. She tried to explain everything to him yet she knew he didn't believe a word she said.
The two part ways however only she knew that this wasn't their first meeting but their last.
