He knew there’s nothing to wait, but he decided to give a try. So here he was standing, dressed in tall coat and blue jeans, rose in one hand, other knocking on the door. He was afraid and curious same time. All kind of emotions went through his body, as he had given the knock, he got nervous, even there was nothing to lose, but even more to win. Silence. Time seemed like hours, even there were just minutes. Again knock. Door started slowly to open. On the doorstep became long shadow. What came closer as it covered the light behind it. One about middle aged lady was on the door. Looked at him and said something in un understandable language for him. She seemed confused but same time she had angry look. Man decided to leave, as there was no way to make himself clear to that lady. Before he left, he gave lady a rose and envelope and apologized for disturbing, then he stepped back and walked out of the gate, without having a look back. He took a look to his watch and thought maybe he has a luck to get the last bus. There wasn’t any, and it was cold cold night.

  He spent a night on the bench at the bus stop, as he had nowhere to go, and it seemed to him that noone didn’t care about his wellbeing. He laid there long about thinking and regretting of his doing and seemed last hope was gone.  Somehow he fell asleep. And woke up when he felt and arm shaking him, and saying something in language he wasn’t abled to understand. 

He raised up and sat, it was even more cold, took a look at the watch it was 8 am, but it was still quite dark. Voice said something again. He looked up, it was the same lady who was on the door, it could been understood by the voice, but as he was freezed as it was very cold, then he didn’t make the differences. Voice asked to stand up, he couldn’t stand up. He felt weakness. Tried again. This time success. Lady gave a hand, throwing him to follow her, same time taking care of that he could follow him. It was very hard to walk, head rolled around, breath heavy. When they were at the gate, mans power ended and he fell in to the snow. Lady helped him up. He fell again. She made him to sit, wall behind him, to support. When the lady came back, this time she had someone with her, but it was hard to see for him. He was raised again and with double support walked inside. It took very long time as the man was having big trouble with moving his feet. Finally he was inside of the house, but instead of feeling warmth and the happiness of somebody caring him, he stared around the room he was brought.  He was undressed till underwear and put in to the bed under blanket. As one wasn’t enough then two. Given warm tea. Then he fell to sleep. 2 days he didn’t raise up. He had high fever,and he was barely awake.

On third day he woke up because the sun was shining brightly in to his eyes. He opened them. He closed them. Opened them, closed them. And then opened. It was toomuch to belive. He moved his hand towards what he saw and smiled. Finally said a word. “why?” he asked on a silent voice. “because I love you” was replied. “how are you feeling, I hope better”. “I feel bit weak, but I guess I’m fine”. She turned around, had a shy smile on her face, what was so beautiful. “I got your letter, but I thought its too late. I saw you leaving, until I was told later that you were found sleeping on bench with 24 degrees cold”. “I’m sorry”, he said and tried to rise from bed. She pushed him back, “ where is the hurry now, you are weak, you should stay in bed, don’t worry I will be beside you, you still have a fever”.  He fell asleep again very soon. On the fourth day he woke up, he didn’t have fever anymore, she asked him: “ you must be hungry, here eat is the soup”. He ate it and asked her to sit by his side to bed. They talked long about themselves, finally they stopped talking. Looked in each others eyes. Smiled. And then they had their very first kiss. It wasn’t so romantic as they were dreamed off. But on that moment they didn’t care. they found themselves in each others arms, kissing cuddling and holding hands. They fell to sleep. On next morning they had breakfast together, walked little around the area. They felt happier. On the same night, when they were about to falling a sleep, he said to her I love you girl, no matter what. I love you too she said and they kissed again. Fell asleep in each others arms. And since that night they belonged to each other. They were one. Both felt that it was the love they were looking for.
