Have you ever heard about the ‘god of love’? People say he can know who your other half is just by looking into your eyes. To be honest, when I was a kid, I didn't believe in this legend at all, and that’s why when that man appeared in front of me, saying he knew who my destined one was, I felt the necessity to show him that all that was simply stupid and that he was wrong.
I challenged him to lead me to where that person was, and he took me to a park near to the mountain. There was a little girl playing in the mud and I, without thinking, took a rock and threw it at her, hitting her on the face. I know what I did was wrong, but I was just a silly kid trying to show that big guy, who called himself a god, that I didn't care what he said. I wanted to decide my own destiny.
Some years passed and I never saw him again. I met a girl in college and fell madly in love with her. She’s a woman with beautiful eyes and a childish face accentuated by the bangs that always cover her forehead. To tell you the truth, I never thought again about what happened in the park that time until, one day, it began to rain when my lover and I were on our way home. Since we didn't have an umbrella we started running, and while we did so I looked at her, suddenly noticing a long scar on her forehead. Later on, I asked her about it, really curious and with my heart racing for some strange reason. She told me that, when she was little, a naughty boy threw a rock at her out of nowhere. Actually, it wasn't a big injury, but she could never get rid of the scar.
At that moment, I finally realized that what that man said to me was true; we're all connected to each other and we all have someone we're meant to be with, no matter the time and no matter the distance. Now I know how lucky I am to have her by my side and I’m sure I'll never be able to thank him enough for teaching me that.
