FACE TO FACE WITH PAST
A cool breeze blew, caressing my face as I sat in my balcony with a steaming cup of coffee.Since Peter's departure life was monotonous.The same daily routine was a escape to me from the harsh reality of the past."only if Pete was here"I thought and a tear drop escaped my eye.
23 APRIL-I could not forget the dreadful day even in my dreams.If that day had not come my Peter would have been with me right now.My mind went back to that dreadful day,the day which changed a chirpy,fun loving girl into an introvert,workaholic business woman,thats me,Elena Williams.
"No Pete"I shouted in laughter when a cute,handsome 6 feet tall guy acting like a kid splashed water on me.We had come on a outing to a local beach downtown,just a break from the heavy workload we both had."I know you are crazy about water but please get back.The waves are too high"I pleaded with him full of concern towards him.I had heard many incidents where guys who went to enjoy in the beaches were taken away mercilessly by the water,leaving behind a soulless body.Peter,always an obedient boyfriend,for the first time ,maybe call it destiny's play did not pay heed to my words and just left himself at the mercy of the waves."Elena,this is wonderful",he screamed in joy but at that moment destiny played a really cruel game with us.
The next few minutes of my life was a hurricane that just destroyed my perfect life.I saw my Pete going away from me with the waves.I can still picture his wet hair,the shorts he was wearing and his perfect masculine body trying to fight the waves and come back to the shore.His screams,"Elena save me.I dont want to go.I want to marry you and live with you.I do not want to die"send chills to my spine even today.I could not hold myself back.Seeing the love of my life giving up the battle of his life,I jumped into the powerful sea and started to swim towards him.To my luck,some of the local people also rushed to help us.As soon as we neared Peter,he held my hand and with remaining strength left,he uttered,"I love you Elena now and forever"and I felt as if my heart was shattered into pieces.Seeing the person you love losing his life in front of your eyes is a nightmare which would surely haunt one for the rest of their life.That nightmare was happening to me.After bringing him to the shore,we realised that Peter is no more and what lay in front of us was just a lifeless body.
I was fully shattered.My dream of spending my life wit Pete lay broken in front of my eyes.The haunting reality was present before me.After this tragedy,the world saw a new Elena who was strong,hard working and very rude.
I came back to the present.The coffee in the cup was intact.My cheeks had been fully wet by the rain of tears.The cool breeze was still blowing."I miss you Pete",I whispered.Just then I heard someone screaming,"No Pete.I know you are crazy about water but please get back".Those were the same words I had told Pete.I quickly rushed down to see who it was.I was being foolish in expecting Peter to be present there.But there I saw a cute little boy,about the age of four,playing in a puddle of water.Next to him,stood his mother requesting him not to do so.Overcome by emotions,I ran and hugged the cute little Pete.
