~~How do you start a story? With a question? With a statement? How well I have no idea if I’m honest, I can’t even spell so how am I supposed to write a story? Well I must have done ok if you are reading this but the highest probability is that this will be lost in my memory or in cyberspace or simply just lost.
At this point you will be wondering what the hell is this story about? Well the truth is I don’t know I’m going to write what I know and you can decide. So here I go:
You think of life as something that is long when you are young but as I learnt as you get older life is very short, too short for you to learn of anything important, but there is one exception, some people may think that they know important things such as how to make money, how to drive, how to do a job but all of this is meaningless compared to the infinite universe. I mean seriously to the universe we are nothing a blink in the cosmos, now just sit there… and ponder that for a minute…. What are we compared to something like our planet? We are a speck barely noticeable, now compare our planet to our solar system? Its tiny, Jupiter alone is something like 8 times the size of our earth, our sun is over 1000 times bigger, now how small do you feel? Or do you still fell quite big? Ok compare our solar system which is over 1,000,000,000 time bigger than our planet to the galaxy, the Milky Way…. (that’s the galaxy we are in just to clarify for those who think it’s a star constellation, it’s not it’s a flipping galaxy) inside the milky way there are at least 100,000 solar systems that are just like ours…. And now finally compare that to the billions of other galaxy’s with so many solar systems that we have not got a name for that number yet, now do you see how small and insignificant we all are? My point is that our life is so short and little compared to the universe we sometimes find ourselves, or at least I do, wondering what is the point of our life? And at that point you wonder what all the things I your life has been for? But here is hope, I mentioned one thing, one exception, and now after what you have just read you’re going to thing oh god why am I reading this? But before you put it down read to the end of the chapter. The one exception is Love, yes love I know what you are thinking, but it’s true, just think about it for a moment what does everything start with? As a few examples why do people buy homes? Is it cos they can? No most of the time its cos the want to start a family or make people happy, for their love… when peoples kids come in late without telling you that they are going to be late, why do they get grounded or why do they get in to trouble? It’s because they are loved… not the best two examples but just think about it for a few moments and you will see what I mean quite easily.
So as I said at the beginning if this story, I’m going to write what I know and what I know is that love is the strangest thing in the universe (that we know off) it can make you happy, it can make you sad, it can fill you with courage or it can make you go on a rampage as well as so many other things, but what makes love different? According to scientists not much compared to other emotions it just chemicals and such but it is the one emotion that can invoke so many other emotions, why is this? Well I hope you don’t expect me to give you the answer because I don’t know, I don’t think anyone does.
So my experiences, lets star with one of the moments I  my life, I was only 2 years old at the time and therefore I didn’t understand until I was older, that moment was when my dad went to prison, I’m not going to tell you why cos its none of your business, but when  that happened I fell very sad, I didn’t know why really at the time but when I saw him again I soon realised it was because I was going to miss him because I loved him and still do, that was the first moment I felt real love. Now let’s skip ahead a few years to when I was 12 or 13 I can’t really remember, but I met this girl called Sarah, she was my first girlfriend, it didn’t last long though but I truly felt something for her and I know this because I still feel it now, only a little bit however, since then I’ve had the odd girlfriend but in college now there is only one person I feel love for now and she doesn’t even know it, her name is Chloe Lane and I fear she may never know it, she is really something, I’ve met a hell of a lot of people in my life and not one of the comes close to comparing with her, she’s not only beautiful, he smart and I mean really smart not just academic but street smart as well, she is also caring even though she won’t admit it iv see it in her eyes  in person, she sensible, she’s not like most girls knower days that goes around like a slut and thinks it a good thing, she’s just amazing, I’m struggling to find the right words to describe her she’s so unique any words I can say don’t do her justice and I do t think she even know my full name and I’m probably never going to get to know her any better cist she’s going off to university of Darby but that’s life for you, or in the words of a famous person Life’s a Bitch, and then you die, I guess the purpose of this story is to say don’t hold back, go for it, and don’t let nerves get the better of you, as you don’t know when you will lose your chance and then you read that little section and you think, why don’t you go for it then, well because I’m too much of a coward to and I don’t have ti follow my own advice it’s probably a bad idea and I’m the writer so I don’t have to, but believe me if I had the courage then I would go for it and give her anything she wants but it’s never going to happen so meh I’ll get over it eventually.
The next point about love is the world I mean look at it, it’s a shit hole, and whys that? Because of love of something or another, For example why is Briton I debt? Well it because of some people who was in love with money sold off all of the British government assists. Next example, why was there a world war? Because someone was In LOVE with power. Also look at what people do for love? I mean seriously google it, people jump of bridges for it, write books about it, spend money on it, sacrifice them sleeves for the people they love, sing songs about it, dance about it…. Have I made my point yet? Yes, that’s fantastic. No, well then close your eyes and think what you would do for the people or things you love.
Now you see my point, and at this point in the story I’m at over 1300 words and since I’m writing this at 0200 in the morning I’m going to wrap it up there for now however I will be writing follow ups to this and if you have read this and are wondering anything then feel free to let me know
