I know this girl online via chat room, MIRC, years ago. We exchanged phone numbers then but did not contact each other until one day while I was still serving my second week of Basic Military Training in Pulau Tekong.
One night in camp, I was bored and decided to give her a call. We hit off very well and chatted for a while. Since then, we exchanged phone conversations every night into the wee hours of the morning. Hours appeared like minutes. We just had so much to share with each other that 24 hours was never sufficient to us.
After 6 months, our friendship strengthened. We understand that we know each other pretty well but the irony thing was that we had never seen each other before. Then came the moment, we decided to meet up. Both of us were very excited but on the other hand, we were worried that looks might shun off the other party. That caused the meet-up to be shelved. A few days later, we agreed to meet up again but only on a condition that appearance must not affect our friendship. The venue was Suntec City.
That Saturday afternoon, she arrived earlier than me. When I saw her for the first time, I immediately fell in love with this lovely girl. The feeling was mutual, I guessed. I went up to her and shook her hands. She looked at me and asked anxiously if she was pretty. I said “No”. She was taken aback and asked if I’m comfortable with her. I said “No”. Then she asked if I would be angry if she walked away. I said “No”. She frowned and had enough of me and left. As she walked away, I grabbed her hand and told her to stay. I said “You are not pretty but beautiful. I’m not comfortable with you; I need to be with you. I would not be angry if you walk away; I would be hurt terribly if you did just that.” Tears rolled down her cheeks and she held my hands. I hugged her and whisper into her ears. “To meet you was my fate. To become your friend was my choice. To fall in love with you was beyond my control. I think I had fallen in love with you.”
My dreams came true. That special someone I loved, loved me too, and that special someone was her. Every moment now is as romantic as then. Our love remains at its sweetest.
Nine years on and we are getting married…..cheers!
