Love Kills Slowly

911... "Hello sir/mam, how may I help you?"

"I'm a murderer! P.P...Please help me.. I killed her... my girl."

"Can you please give me your address now sir?"

"M.My address is ..."

 

James sat down hopeless, helpless, holding her dead body on his hands, looking at the one who made him the happiest guy ever, wiping his tears with his hands fully covered with her pure blood. He stares at her stunning red dress, the one she wore on their first date. Wasting no time, James books a ticket and travels to the world of misery, sadness and endless depression also known as "The world of Memories". Remembering the day when they saw each other for the first time and that funny misunderstanding that had happened which started their love journey. Remembering all those silly times between them, all the romantic moments that happened, all the feelings and love they had for one another.

He then ends his first trip from that world and returns to reality. Something shiny caught his attention. He took her hand and could not stop admiring that special ring on her finger. The world of memories dragged him back again. It was her 19th birthday, he went to her place, hugged her tightly, made her close her eyes and placed that precious ring on her finger and said,"I may not be the funniest, the coolest or the most handsome guy you met in your life, but I know that I am the only guy who is ready to give up everything I have just to see your smile... Susan will you stay with me forever? happy birthday darling!"

James reached to a situation where he totally lost everything he has and ever wanted. Madness controlled him, questions started flowing through his mind. "Why did I do it?", "Why did not I give her another chance" , "Was it because I loved her so much that I could not standing seeing her with her other guy friends?, was it because of jealousy?". Guilt washed his body as tears started running down his eyes. He started talking to her, apologizing and telling her how much he loved her over and over again, but Susan left and will never wake up from her eternal sleep, lying down with that lovely smile shaping her lips. At that moment he knew that no matter what he does, he will not escape from that trap of reality and will have to accept that, forever and ever...

The police has arrived, one cop started questioning him and the others left to have a look at the dead body. Few minutes later and without wasting no more time the cop said,"Sir you are under arrest..."
