A Love Story


It all came back to her after hearing those three words. "I love you", John expressed softly to Dianne. Dianne thought, "Why only now?"

*****

The two met at work six years before. They clicked instantly. Soon, they began dating. They dated for three years. But in all those years, the three delicate words were never spoken. They would hold hands and kiss on the cheek but were never intimate. It was obvious how they felt for each other. But they both did not have the courage to say it. Maybe actions were enough... or so they thought.

Three years into their "special friendship", Dianne had to leave for Australia. She said goodbye to John and vowed to stop thinking of him, letting go of the hope that they will end up with each other. She busied herself with work and completely lost touch with John.

She's now back, two years after she left. Upon learning of Dianne's arrival, John immediately sought her out and asked to talk to her. Dianne readily agreed for she herself had some news for John.

*****

"I love you...", he repeated. Dianne just stood there in disbelief. "I loved you since I met you and I still do", John continued. "I didn't say this before because I felt that I was not worthy of you. I worked so hard all these years so I can become a better man for you. I am ready now. I am ready to be with you and marry you."

Dianne was in tears. She took a deep breath and said, "I'm sorry. I met somebody in Australia. We're getting married next month."

its so snake-snake (bitin na bitin).

dear ate charo,

itago na mo na lang ako sa pangalan dianne. pagkaraan ng usapan naming iyon ni john, umuwi akong luhaan.

sa daanan, hinabol ako ni john sabay sabing, mamahalin mo ako para sa lahat ng hindi nagmahal sa akin.

ngunit, sa kasawiang palad, ang nasambit ko ay,

umalis ka na, at sa pag alis mo, wag kang lumingon, dahil kung lilingon ka, pipigilan kita.

ate charo, di ko maabing siya pa rin hanggang ngayon. ano ba ang dapat kong gawin?

nagmamahal,

dianne

ang buhay ay isang talinhaga. ngunit ang nagmamahal sa makabagong panahon ay magtatagumpay sa kahuli-hulihan.

Dear Dianne,

Mabuhay ka at hindi ka pa nagpadala sa tukso na dulot ni John. Tama ang ginawa mo. Dapat mong panindigan ang pangako mo sa iyong magiging asawa. Sana ay magiging masaya kayong dalawa. Darating din ang araw na makakahanap si John ng magmamahal sa kanya ng buong-buo.

Nagmamahal,
Ate Charo
