I have loved him since I meet him for the first time. It was like love at first sight, sparks flying everywhere, butterflies in my stomach kind of love. I was upset with the way where my life was heading. I was confused about purpose of my life, failing at everthing I do. Just like always whenever I got sad I go to beach, even though I have fear of large water bodies like lakes, oceans, and rivers but I also find solace here, whenever I see a sunset here, it feel like all my problems are drowning just like the image of sun that drown in water as the sunset progresses. Just like always I have came here to drown all of my worries and my anxiety about my future. Then after some time I heard footsteps approaching me and someone came and sat beside me and I looked up to lash out that person for invading my privacy but when I looked up I was mesmerized by his beauty, he was like an angel that has descended from heaven and when he turned his head to look into my eyes, I got acquainted with his curious brown blue eyes reading me. And then he spoke "why are you sitting here alone? Is there any problem?" and I was brought back to reality. I turned my face away from him and spoke, "I don't know, how my sitting here concern you. This is free place and I can sit wherever I want" and even after my rude reply he said, "usually people sit here when they are drowning in sadness and when life's being a bitch to them, I didn't wanted to invade your privacy, it's just that sometimes you need someone, a listening ear to vent out all your problems and that seem to have a magical effect. " I was feeling guilty for venting out my emotions at him. So I asked, " You look like you are speaking from experience " and he spoke with a gentle tinge in his voice, like he is revisiting his past "You can say that but at that time I did not find any listening ear and have to fight through my problems alone but in the end I am happy for all that time cause that made me who I am today." "is it your hobby to talk like this to every stranger that sat here?" and I heard his beautiful laughter, breaking down my walls that I build around myself and then he said "no, it's not like that and I am actually visiting this place after a long time and I saw you sitting here alone, since last one hour and I feel like helping you cause that what I needed at that time. I am sorry if I am invading your personal bubble, I can leave right now, sorry to disturb you. " and he start to get up but I held his hand and said "please, stay."and he sat back, beside me and I lost in my thoughts again. After some time when I felt at ease. I turned to look at his face, he was as much lost as I am but he also seem much mature than me, like he has learned alot from his life. Feeling my gaze at his face, he turned around and asked "feeling better?" and I smiled at him and said "yes, thanks for staying beside me, I really needed someone at that time, not to say something but to just sit beside me. By the way I am Diana and you are? I raised my hand for handshake, he hold it and said smilingly " hi! Diana, I am Damon. " and that's how we first met, that memory is still embedded deep in my soul. And then started our meet ups at the beach, we always take out time, every weekend to meet each other. And slowly slowly, I don't even know when I fall in love with You. Just like always, we were hanging at the beach and he said " Diana, I know it's too soon but still I want to say this to you I love you Diana, more than anything, more than life itself. And I have tears of joy in my eyes. I jumped on him hugging the life out of him and kissed him senseless after speaking I love him too. We were very happy on that day, it feels like I have met what I was waiting for all this Time. We started hanging out more, spending time in cafes, restaurants, sharing our thoughts, our like - dislikes, basically sharing our life and then one day when we meet for lunch in our favourite cafe. I asked him " Damon, why do you love me? You are sinfully handsome, you can get any girl you want." he took both my hands after hearing that and kissed them both and then spoke, " princess, I love you unconditionally without any reason. Cause when you love someone due to any reason then when that reason ends, your love for them ends , I love you for coming into my life and making it like my heaven, like my personal most beautiful heaven "I felt so happy after hearing his words and went back home on cloud nine, I always loved the way he called me princess, it always made me feel like I am actually a princess, his princess. I still remember that time when we didn't talk with each other for about one week and It was like whole eternity without talking to him, not having any form of contact with him and that was making me so anxious , 'what if he loves Me no more', That thought was hovering over my head and then I heard ringing of my phone and I felt so relieved to see your name on screen. I picked my phone instantly and said hello . You said hello back and asked me to reach the same spot on that Beach to talk about something. This fear that I have of our relationship ending was getting stronger. I didn't give a Damn about what I was wearing and went to that Beach in my loose t-shirt and pajama bottoms with hello kitty on them. When I reached there running, out of breath, I got surprised by light hanging around that place, a table and two chairs were there and on table sat our dinner and standing beside chair is man of my dream, My Damon and I run towards him but he stopped me with his hand, I was perplexed by his reaction and then he clicked his finger and rose petals started falling on me. Just like a dream and there lays a rose petals track guiding me toward Damon. I started walking towards him, my heart racing fast. When I reached there Damon put out his hand for me, I took his hand and follows him to our chairs and then we had our dinner. We didn't talk much at dinner. I was getting more and more confused. Then Damon asked me to walk along the beach and I happily agreed. We were walking, just walking hand in hand not speaking any word. Then after some time we sat down at the very same spot, where we meet for the first time . I was getting nervous as the time was passing and then I heard Damon's voice, breaking my chain of thoughts "close your eyes." and I did as he said and then I heard his voice after 5 minutes to open them again and when I opened my eyes I was surprised by hundred of fireflies lightning our night and when I looked at Damon, he was already on his knees holding a ring box towards me "will you marry me Diana? And make me the happiest person on this planet." tears of joy start flowing down my face and I nod my face, as yes, as words won't seem to find their way out of my mouth. Seeing my response, Damon put ring on my finger and hugged me, twirling me around before landing me on ground and kissing me. Then he asked me to dance with him but I asked where's the music. He took out his phone and played "thinking out loud" by ed sheeran and we danced till midnight in each other arms then after that we started heading back to our homes. Damon asked me to come in his car and his driver will come tomorrow with my car and I agreed. Damon was driving and I was looking at him in pure bliss and after some time he turned toward me, asking me what I am staring at and I said, I am staring at what's mine and that made him broke into his mischievous grin. We were so busy in each other that we didn't notice a car heading toward us and hit us. My head hit against something hard and I felt a cold liquid trailing down my face. I turned to look at Damon, he was more badly hurt then me. And then my eyes closed. When I opened my eyes, I was in hospital. I asked about how's Damon and meet with silence from everyone. I felt like the world has ended for me and I went back into darkness once again. When I come to my senses I come to know that I have lost my love, my life and he is never going to come back. We were perfect for each other, loved each other beyond belief, ready to die for each other if any situation arise and that's what he has done, he died trying to save my life and left me here to breath alone.. But my love for him was beyond any bound cause I still love him even though he is not here . I still feel his presence around me cause universe itself say that every cell has a particular space in it and that can never be filled by anyone and anything else and that's what I have, his space with whom I talk to, share all my secrets, his space to engulf me in whenever i feel weak and afraid. I can never love anyone like i love him. His love is my oxygen and that is encouraging me to live. I know he can never come back but I also know that my soul is saying his soul is somewhere near even though his body is not with it. I can feel air that push back tendrils of my hair that fall down on my face when i am doing something.l. I can feel a warmth engulfing my body whenever I feel shaken by my nightmares of that dark night, it's like he is talking with my soul through these small gestures . I can still feel him, if not see, Through wind that swept across my face even though it's not a windy day, through warmth hugging me whenever i feel hard to sleep at night, through that not so silence that engulf me whenever I am alone. If it was not for him i might have killed myself after i lost him, if not for him I don't know what I would have done with my life. On that day i decided to kill myself after he died by jumping in front of a car but a hand pulled me to a hard chest and when i looked up, my eyes bore into those familiar brown blue eyes that belong to only one person that I love beyond my life and then after that there was nothing and I bend down crying on my sad plight but then again I felt that familiar warmth that engulfed me.After being freed from all the hustle and bustle of my life, I went to our favourite place, yes! The Beach on which we meet for first time, the beach where you proposed me to marry you, that Beach held so many of our memories. I reached there when sun was setting down, it was more than beautiful, the way the sky was decorated in different shades of red. I sat down reminiscing all our favourite memories like how we used to walk together hand in hand on the shore, how the waves used to assault our legs, how you always hold me a little tighter when we went into water cause you know how much I am scared of large water bodies, but still I like to come here with you, everytime you asked me cause I love you more than any of my fears. I missed all of that, I missed you.. I don't know when tears start welling up in my eyes and found their way back down my face and I was crying silently, desperately cause I've been strong for too long, for my family, for your family and for you. Then I feel like waves touching my feet, I got up suddenly cause since I was small I have fear of drowning whenever I see water, I turned to leave this place cause our memories are hurting me so much and just then I feel someone is holding my hand, when I looked all around me, I saw No One and then that hand entwined with mine and I felt the same warmth that I got when you touches me. I understood that you have come, that your soul have come and I started walking down the shore, just like we used to do and I could feel your warmth walking beside me, I can feel a pair of footsteps right next to mine and when I turned to look at my foot prints I could see your pair too and that brought me immense joy to know, that I am not alone, that you are with me, that our love is stronger than fate, death and anything else in this world...
