The Ghost of Love
 
Hearing the flitter of the winds and the breeze dancing with the dust to compose the melody of life. behind these melodies that enchanted our world , you could hear Johns melancholy blubbering over his angel ,Cathy,to come .You could see tears came from the sky to mourn for his loss ,and the melodious birds kept creeping inside the darkness till you could not hear them anymore .It was like the whole universe sadden out of the sudden ,except for one man whose sadness was above them all ,his tears engulfed his soul to its ultimate till there were no place for his heart to love again, for he once tasted love with her and would never bear to be hurt any more.
 
It all started at one foggy night late in November 1970.John,a young man in his twenties who loved his work as a journalist, was busy that night with his work ,writing an article about the economical problem faced England for the last three years ,when a knock at his front door of his house got his attention .he leaped from his chair and hurried to open the door ,surprised to see a woman ,a beautiful woman with enchanting eyes and black hair as the color of the night. She looked at him with radiant smile and bent down to introduce her self
“I’m lady Catharine, the previous owner of this house may I please come in and stay here for couple days till the weather gets better”
John was stunned .He knew he got this house around six months ago from a friend of his , who told him that some one was selling a beautiful house and he agreed to buy it without he or his friend knowing the mysterious person who wanted to sell the house .  However,what made him really shocked was the way the woman looks .She was so familiar to him, even though he did not see women very often, since he was so addicted to his work and declined every invitation party he got from his friends, but somehow this woman made him uneasy as if he saw her some where else but where.
He replied,“Oh forgive me madam, my name is John Green, the new owner of this house, and I welcome you here till the weather gets better. I must say I’m really shocked to see a beautiful lady like you travel by her self in such a weather “
She laughed sarcastically at his statement and said:
“Oh Mr. Green I’m not a mad person to travel a lone in this weather. I traveled with my servant, Toby, to visit my aunt but surprisingly I end up here in my old house waiting for you to let me at least rest here with out you investigating me like some thief who wants to steal things fromyou”
“My apology, I will not disturb you with my questions any more.However,I believe your servant needs a room to rest “
“No need Mr. Green, he has returned to my house, since he can not be separated from his family”
“I see, please let me show you where you shall stay “
She leaped from her chair and hurried up the stairs without letting him show her the room she supposed to stay in. He was even more confused a bout her actions and thought it might be because this was her previous home and would not let any one show her around as if she wanted to display authority and superiority upon him.
John thought that it would be for short time and this rude woman would leave.
The next day,
John woke up earlier this morning . That night he could barley sleep, thinking of that woman with her dazzling eyes that would enchant any one who could see them,and even about her servant who has disappeared in such a weather, leaving his mistress alone in a stranger house.He heard a melodious sound came from the kitchen .He went down the stairs to see the owner of this sound .He was amazed to see Cathrine in the kitchen ,singing while making cookies.She seemed really different from yesterday night.she stopped when she saw him entering the kitchen,asking him if he was disturbed by her singing.
He answered her”not at all madam but what is the reason behind these cookies you made”
She smiled happily saying it was her gratitude for letting her stay at his house and her apology for her bad attitude toward him yesterday night .
 
They spent that morning together , talking for hours about many things ,his eyes could not leave her laugh that echoed into his mind and made him happy for some reasons he could not comprehense what he really felt .she was equal to him in term of intellectuality .They kept talking For hours as if there was no tomorrow ,her comments delighted him and she even helped him finishing his work .All of these things perplexed him .She was mysterious to him ,a puzzle he wanted to solve. The more he wanted to get closer to her, the more he wanted to know her better.
 
 
 
His feeling toward her was un readable, he could not understand it ,since he did not experience this kind of feelings toward any woman before, like she was the cure to heal his sick heart.
Two days passed and it seemed that the weather was getting better, the day of her departure seemed to get closer, closer……….………..John wished so bad for the wind to come and for the storm to strike his house numerous time,so she would never leave his side .He could not bear to see her leaving without expressing his feeling for her. He hurried to her room and knocked on her door , but without any response from her, he got frustrated and tried to open the door, stunned to see an empty room ,leaving him only a note, telling him good buy and thanked him for everything he had done for her. He could not
believe his eyes, she left without saying anything, leaving only a note .He thought his heart died with this kind of pain and agony, Pressing his hands so tightly against the wall, calling her name
“Catherine! Catherine! how could you leave me, how could you”, He shouted
Suddenly, a sound of crying behind him made him turned a round to see who was the one making this sound, to his surprise, he saw Catherine with tears falling from her beautiful eyes .
He could not bear to see her tears and started to wipe her tears gently
by his hand, telling her to stop crying .she
looked at him with tears kept falling “I could not bear leaving you ,I love you so deeply that my heart could not stand leaving you, even though you and I are different people who could not be together no matter what”, she said sadly
he hugged her so close to his chest ,asking her for the reason behind her words “don’t say this , I love everything about you.your smile ,the way you talk, and the way you tease me with everything you say. Cathy you complete me, so tell me why cannot we be together Cathy, why? Are you married? am I not worthy enough ………………..or what”, he cried
“No, John I t is not like that”, she said
They looked into each other’s eyes .Their lips were few inch apart, they could hear each other breath, their hearts beating so fast. He pressed his lips against hers.however, their happiness didn’t remain for ever,as soon as they got apart from each other ,She started to turn into dust slowly.John was shocked ,the woman he loved was turning into dust and he could not do any thing to stop this ,and even figured out the meaning behind this ,was he hallucinating ? he started to shout for her name Cathy Cathy…………..but she could not respond .Her sad image while she was calling his name struck him deeply into his heart .He could not do anything. He stood there waiting for her to vanish completely in front of his eyes
In the end , John could not bear to stay at this house because everything in this house reminded him of her, every pieces of his clothes had her smell ,even though she was an illusion that sounded so real.
While he was packing his things , he
found an old picture of the owner of this house, it was her.He hold her picture so tightly to his chest.
“How come you are the one who stole my heart ,my beautiful dream, I will never love again ,till death makes us meat again”, he said
By these words he left the house that made him made great reminiscence with her.
The end
