Chad’s Modern Fable #2

There’s this young man you see. A typical bachelor enjoying life in the city. He’s doing good at his job, while partying hard at night. I’d also like to add that he’s a lady’s man and knows his way around the female form. Ah yes, he’s never taken any girl seriously to more than a month’s relationship and he’s always kept it that way. I actually don’t know if it’s out of fear of commitment or maybe he’s scared of being tied down. You’d actually think there’s nothing else to write at this point but like any story we need a twist.

Now he meets this girl, who’s completely similar to him. Sexy, single and ready to mingle. What do you think would happen when these two people have one awesome night together and then have a hard time getting over each other? Will they finally be tied down together? Or  will they just leave it as it as is, just one awesome night.

Motto of the story: If you’re expecting more out of this tale then you love drama a lot.

Falling in love at a coffeehouse

It was just another night after classes in university. It was a rainy afternoon when I accompanied you to your club activities on campus. While you had your chorale activities to tend to, I was outside sitting on a bench just admiring the afternoon rain under a grey orange sky. We’ve been friends for two months and I’ve only started dating you five weeks ago and have already told you that I love you in our third week of dating. I sat there wondering what could have made me said that so soon in a dating stage. I’ve know myself to hold off for a month or two before I tell a lady I love her, but in the back of my head it just felt right. Two hours have passed with me still deep in thought while swatting the mosquitoes away and I realized I haven’t even started on my assignment for the next day. You came out of the club room, tired but happy and I invited you to the coffeehouse so I can finish my report.

After ordering our usual down at the coffeehouse we sat down at our usual spot and I took out my laptop to do my report. Halfway through my report, you started acting differently; more cute and clingy while trying to get my attention. I really wanted to just stop what I was doing and pinch your cheeks but I couldn’t because I enjoyed what you were doing. Finally done with my report we decided to head home and right when we got down the stairs outside the coffeehouse you grabbed my arm and pushed me against the fence and just kissed me. I didn’t know if I wanted to kiss you again or scream from the sudden pain inflicted on my behind by the pointy fence. After a couple of seconds you told me you’ve been thinking about how you felt about me for the past few days and how you’ve come to realize that you love me too.

Fast forward to five years, we’re still together although a thousand miles apart. I know we’ve had our ups and downs but that’s what made us stronger as a couple. To that special lady in my life, happy 5th anniversary and cheers to more years together.
