?A story has no beginning or end, they are endless, continuous like day and night, autumn and spring; erratically one chooses a moment of experience, from which to gaze forward or back. This story also begins somewhere unknown, at an unknown time. Allyn, going through her everyday life, enjoying it in a different way, different from others, not the boring one lived by the people, but the one she desired to; considering everything, excluding nothing. As every individual does, or especially girls have some bold and impracticable hopes, she too did; wishes like owning a pet or having a guy best friend. Allyn had already moved into that phase of life, called teenage years. So according to her age, she was known to all those talks, of having crushes, attending late night parties or even checking out guys. Still she made an effort to remain aside from all this, considering her career. Thankfully, she considered studies her priority. She had a good hand on drawing; people were like crazy about her drawing skills. She considered drawing her hobby, rather than selecting it over studies. Everything was moving on smoothly, until a boy, of her age, turned up in her life. Actually they were together for a long time, but never got a chance to know each other. Adam was a strong built man, with an attitude to die for. He appeared in Allyn’s life, as other people did. They began to talk to each other whenever they got time. Allyn shared with him everything, all things about her past, and whatever she thought about future. Adam also became a die-hard fan and a well-wisher of Allyn’s drawing. On seeing her works of art, he was like, “oh my God Allyn, did you really make this, and it’s so marvellous!” They started to understand each other better. Soon they turned into good friends, quite worthy friends. They got to know each other’s likes and dislikes. Allyn was being attracted to him, by his attitude, his looks, his words, and everything. She soon started admiring him.  They had hardly met about three months back, and so many moments had passed. They knew much about each other, deeper than anyone else did; everything about each other’s families as well. After quite a long time, Allyn got to know that Adam also liked her very much, but to an extent called love. When Adam got to know that she was told the truth by one of his friends, he got that feeling of nervousness, thinking what her reaction would have been. Will she even talk to him? Will they be friends still? All these doubts arose in his mind. ??For Allyn, liking her, at first surprised her, but in the same place also gratified her. ?She was puzzled, so she made to one of her friends place and asked her for an advice. Her friend recommended her to avoid that guy. But Allyn also liked to talk to him, so she didn’t really prefer to agree to her suggestion. It all happened in a go, and that made Allyn’s life tough. She always tried to be at her best attitude and not let Adam confuse her anymore. She let everything go in the way as it did. But this did affect their friendship; they began to avoid each other. She tried to regain their friendship back, and thus they were back together. She never felt that anything as such had ever happened. Adam always praised her. He tried to find ways to please her. He started to gift her something or the other thing. It became his habit, and habits are to be improved upon, thus he did. He considered Allyn perfect, stating that she could do multitasking. He always adored her eyes, but she never came across anything like that in her eyes, and as she understood human psychology to some extent, she knew all of it. He started to love every part of her whether it was her voice or her style. Allyn too liked many of his things; the way he acted, talked to her or even blushed. He had become an ineradicable part of her life. The day they didn’t talk to each other, became a difficult one to be spent. People started spreading rumours about them, being in a relationship, but what they always said was, “Shut up, we are just friends!” They were like stars and light, sun and heat, sea and boat, inseparable, they even did promise each other, to be friends forever… Even if anything goes wrong, they will talk to each other and solve it together. They had some things in common as everyone does, but they noted each of them, for fun. Their friendship was the one to be inspired of, they even did wish each other good night in a unique way; Adam always told her that the mosquitoes would never bite her because he dared them not to. Since, Allyn already knew the truth, Adam kept reminding her that he loved her more than Romeo loved Juliet, or Antony loved Cleopatra. They thought of travelling together to many places, especially places where silence and beauty met, as both of them loved travelling. They talked endlessly about love, but never confessed it. Who could have thought, that someday they would become best friends, two people met accidentally, talked to each other and came so close… It appears like one of those fairy tales, a mix of fantasy and realism. Adam insisted on having a relationship, that Allyn never thought of as a good option, as she had seen what happens, all that feeling of depression can drag one down. ? On the other hand, he always looked out for the positives of it, like cherishing love, feeling it and falling for each other. They both loved each other, from the bottom of their hearts, but couldn’t really confess it to each other truly. That’s a very common thing that happens in love stories, isn’t it? But this one isn't one of them. Valentine’s week was on the corner, Allyn thought that this year, she would be having a great week with Adam. But everything had changed. They went on ignoring each other, kind of feeling shy. And thus all the days of that adoring week passed away, as they did each year. They hoped that something special would happen, but it didn’t unfortunately; their destiny never wanted them to celebrate this Valentine’s Day their first one. But everyday can be celebrated as Valentine’s Day, when one is in love, so it really doesn’t matter, does it? They did face each other many times, but didn’t speak to each other. Allyn noticed Adam staring at her, as if he wanted to say something. So she just walked up to him…and said,” First of all, you came into my life, from nowhere; then you told me that you loved me, and now you just disappeared like you never came, why are you doing this..” ” I wasn’t able to communicate with you, I am really sorry.” He added. “Please you don’t need to be sorry, it was my fault that I trusted you, and never let your first love become a mere memory; I used to lie to myself just to believe your lies; I gave you chances when you weren’t even sorry..” she said all of this and just left him alone. She felt like crying, actually she did. Adam never thought something like this would ever happen. They noticed each other’s smile fading, the cheerful face disappeared. After quite some time, Adam walks up to Allyn and says,” I had no intentions to hurt you Allyn! ”, he grabbed her hand. She felt uncomfortable, but couldn’t force him to leave it, as she really wanted him to speak. He dived into her twinkling eyes, starved into her fears and tasted the essence of her dreams. He told her that he really loved her, and won’t be able to forget his first love, ever. She smiled and said,” I don’t want anything, not even a relationship, I have everything, a loving family, good friends, so I am happy with what I have.” He added with a feeling of helplessness,’’ I loved you, confessed it to you, kept reminding you, but still…Is there anyone else in your life?” “No!” she responded and just walked away, because no words were left with her. They didn’t talk anymore; but the first thought in the morning and the last thought before going to sleep, was what they meant to each other. Many days passed, they didn’t talk to each other, thinking what life really wants from them. In the most difficult time of their life, an earthquake of high magnitude, struck the place they lived. ?The first thought that occurred in Adam’s mind, was Allyn. He rushed to find her, whereas Allyn was on her way to him, and this proved how much they loved each other. But the only difference was, Allyn still didn’t confess her love for him, actually she wanted to, but it was already very late. When Adam reached the place she lived, it had already been converted into huge heaps of debris. He suddenly stopped, thinking what if Allyn had already…He started to cry, soon then Allyn approached him and said, “Adam, you came here just for me, I am so lucky to have you in my life...” “But you still don’t love me...” just then a part of the debris fell on Allyn. She lay there on Adam’s lap, wounded with blood, all over her body. She cried,” Adam, I love you very much, and long before than you did…” and these were her last words to Adam and to the world as well. How could the creator do something like this with her, with a person who never thought anything bad for anyone? Adam in downheartedness wondered if it really was Allyn who was there to confess her love for him, before she flew away from the deadly world, or if it was just his imagination... as she was lying there, numb. Adam swore to the Almighty, that Allyn was his first and will be his last love, forever…
