Why relationships are like this? Sometimes is in happiness, sometimes is in sadness. Sometimes is in a fight, sometimes is in good times. Sometimes is in a break up but never letting go?

June 6, 2011, first day of class and Carl Jones, a transferee was finding his table to take his lunch. He finds no vacant table, so he is just standing on the corner waiting for someone to finish their lunch. Grace White, the most famous mean girl in their school saw Carl. Grace came close to him, but Carl was shocked when she talked to him. She talks like she was not a naughty girl. She told Carl “Hey, Carl, can you join us here on our table? Please?” Actually, that was the first time that Grace pleases others. So Carl answered her “Of course, why not? By the way, thank you” Carl smiled at her then Grace replied “No problem, let’s take our lunch now” On that first day Grace and Carl met, they fall in love to each other. After the lunch, Carl asked her if she is available for the next day and Grace answered “Of course, let’s go, we’re late”

On the next day, they met again and ate their lunch together. When Carl saw Grace he was so surprised because she has no make-up on her face and she was so simple. “Why aren’t you wearing your make-up?” Carl asked. “I hate that, I was just wearing that because I…I don’t know, just never mind, okay?” Grace responded. Grace wasn’t a make-up hater but she was just saying that so Carl won’t be turned off on her. After seeing Carl, Grace was never been a mean girl again.

Many weeks had pass, Grace and Carl became best friends. When one day, Carl thought of courting Grace, he was hiding his feelings for Grace. He wants to do it but he was so shy. So he told his best friend John to help him. But because of John’s big mouth, Carl’s secret love for Grace was revealed. Everybody in their school was talking about it until it reached Grace. When Grace heard that, she was so glad, tears of joy fell from her eyes.

The next day, she tried to talk to Carl to tell him that she feels the same way but he was avoiding her. Several months passed through, Carl was not talking to Grace. The school year has ended, and they can’t see each other for the whole summer. Grace cried and cried because she misses Carl, their memories together but she can’t do anything.

The next school-year. Carl and Grace didn’t expect that they we’re classmates. But then, Carl was still shy at Grace. They we’re often paired by their classmates but still nothing happen. One day, Carl decided to tell Grace how much he loves her. He asked help from his classmates so they can sit together with no disturbances. “Grace? I’m sorry that I am not talking to you these few passed months. I was just so shy.” Carl pleaded Grace. “It’s okay, by the way, Joyce told me that you have something to tell me. What was that about?” Grace replied. “You know Grace, I was in love with you when we first met but I was so, you know. Grace? Can I court you?” Carl whispered. “Yes, but can you wait for two months?” Grace answered. Carl replied yes with a smile on his face.

After two months, Grace became Carl’s girlfriend. They were enjoying their time together. August 23, 2012, Carl was having a conversation with his male classmates. He does not know that Grace is listening. “You know, the girl with the big boobs, I will court her.” Carl shouted. Grace appeared with tears in her eyes “So? Is that it Carl? Taking me for granted just for pleasure?” said Grace with a sad voice” Grace ran crying without listening to any words from Carl. Carl tried to say sorry to Grace but Grace always stays away from him. He do everything just to take her back, he sang this song to Grace.

It still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss
It's getting better baby
No one can better this
Still holding on
You're still the one
First time our eyes met
Same feeling I get
Only feels much stronger
I want to love you longer
Do you still turn the fire on?

So if you're feeling lonely, don't
You're the only one I'll ever want
I only want to make it good
So if I love you, a little more than I should

Please forgive me, I know not what I do
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you
Don't deny me, this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me, if I need you like I do
Please believe me, every word I say is true
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you

Still feels like our best times are together
Feels like the first touch
We're still getting closer baby
Can't get closer enough
Still holding on
You're still number one
I remember the smell of your skin
I remember everything
I remember all your moves
I remember you yeah
I remember the nights, you know I still do

So if you're feeling lonely, don't
You're the only one I'll ever want
I only want to make it good
So if I love you a little more than I should

Please forgive me, I know not what I do
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you
Don't deny me, this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me, if I need you like I do
Please believe me, every word I say is true
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you

The one thing I'm sure of
Is the way we make love
The one thing I depend on
Is for us to stay strong
With every word and every breath I'm praying
That's why I'm saying,

Please forgive me, I know not what I do
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you
Don't deny me, this pain I'm going through
Please forgive me, if I need you like I do
Babe believe it, every word I say is true
Please forgive me, if I can't stop loving you
No, believe me, I don't know what I do
Please forgive me, I can't stop loving you

I can't stop, loving you

Grace was so pleased by that song but her heart is like a stone like no one could ever soften it. She just turned away and went home. She straightly went to her bedroom and took some nap. She dreamt that one day, an earthquake occurred, every building every houses was destroyed. He was in their school. She panicked and she was not moving. Then he saw Carl wounded running close to her and said “Are you okay? Let’s go, this building will collapse.” Carl lifted Grace without a doubt with his full strength. When they are nearing to the door the pillar of the structure fell onto them but Carl pushed Grace away. Carl was hit by that stone, “Grace, please go on, I don’t want you to be hurt, I love you” Carl said with his struggling voice. Grace is in a doubt if she’s going to leave his love, but Carl keep told her to go on and go away. She went out of that building just before the explosion.

Grace woke up, and she knew that it was just a dream but it might come true. She found herself crying. The next day, when Grace saw Carl, she rushed running to him. She hugged him and whispered “I’m sorry I didn’t understand you, I can’t live without you. I love you.” Carl answered “It is okay, that was my fault. I love you too. Can we be together again” Grace shouted, “Yes Carl!” Then Grace and Carl, never had a fight again. They lived their lives joyful. Maybe sometime there are misunderstandings but because of love, they stay strong forever and ever and till the end of time.
