On the canvas of the most beautiful sunrise ever, came the outline of a boy holding the girl and each of them looking into each other's eyes in the loveliest way possible.
It was just beginning of a day for the World , but a beginning of a love story.
As the flowers were raining due to the spring season, the most expensive words of the relationship were told.
“ I love you” said Alex Kemp.
“I love you too " said Amy Bayle.
" I wish my story was as easy as I was narrating above. But then it would be just a story. But mine was a different scenario. By the way, my name is Alex Kemp.
The girl in the mentioned above is my girlfriend Amy.
Well how we became each other's heart and soul is the part of my life worth hearing.
It was a regular school day, corridors filled with students talking to each other, teachers sitting in the class waiting for the bell to ring and other various events that you could probably imagine. I was heading into my classroom as usual and stumbled upon something, or more precisely, someone. The next thing I knew was books and papers flying around me like leaves in the winter, and then I saw it, something very pretty, more beautiful than sunrise, if you guessed it was a girl, you are right. She was the angel who comes in my dreams. This is it, my life. What it was made for.
Then we fell. I thought of introducing myself but she just ran away from the corridor and out of the school.I could have followed her but my teacher had pulled me back into the class . she said I was already late and started scolding. But it was that girl who was going in my mind. The scoldings just felt like some boring history lesson.
It was like a touch of a feather. It was just for a second.
To come to the point, I was in love.
I was perplexed for five days. I just searched for her at every place I knew, I just didn't get her. I waited for that feather, that touch and for that moment.
Then it came to me like a shooting star. Somebody told me that he had seen that girl on a bus going across our town. Just as I heard, I just jumped out of the window of my room. Then, located that bus and ran behind it as fast as I could. But as my life wants to get interesting every moment, something hit me. This time it was not a touch, of a feather, but a hit from a car which threw me off the road and off the path of the bus. Then my friend, like a Guardian angel, comes on a bike and tells me to hop on. So we followed it, but as I was too fond of hitting, this time we(actually I) had the 'luxury'of hitting the road.This kid just comes out of nowhere on middle of this road and my 'guardian angel' hit the brake pads sending us and the bite flying in the air. Last thing my eyes saw was the yellow bus carrying my feather go away before I hit the hard solid road.
After that, I fainted.
The next vision of mine was the room of a hospital. All though it was little blurred, it became Alright later on.
Then it occurred to me.
When I lost the purpose of the life, why live it?
I got no family..
I got no pets.
I got no purpose.
And the purpose which came by also had become out of my reach.
So my legs, even though the pain was flowing through them urged to get me out of the bed and make me stand on the window edge. The last thing I was expecting was the window being at a small height. But fortunately, it wasn't. I could almost estimate that it was some 15th floor. My eyes spread the nervousness of falling to my hands and also the legs which were the brave guys that brought me here and made them shiver.
So I closed my eyes and jumped. I was soaring and cutting through the air. I knew I would fall down on the car below and obviously crush it. (I had seen the car with my eyes before falling). But as my life is interesting and awkward,I didn't touch the car even after thirty second. So I thought, let's open our eyes and check it out. Then I saw something weird. I was at the window. So I thought it was just hallucination. So this time I pinched myself and jumped, more precisely, tried to. But I couldn't.
Not because my hands and legs didn't agree to move. It was because there was a force that wasn't letting me. It was something that won’t let me jump. Then I turned back and saw a guy standing. He was of my age. Wearing a magician's dress. He was shining like a star. Not literally, it was like the bio luminescence of a fire fly. Another awkward thing.
Before my astonished body could say anything, he said "Hi, I am the guy you want the most. By the way, you can call me magician."
From his voice and the look in his eyes, I could tell he wasn't definitely the innocent type of guy, or more like Alien.
Then I asked "What are you?"
He paused for a bit and then spoke "I am a guy who holds a power that can manipulate time.I can help you get her."
I asked the only thing that could be asked "How do I believe you?"
As I completed my sentence, I was in a moment where my nose was touching the car that I was supposed to hit before. Within the next blink, I was in front of the magician. Then he spoke " Do I have control over your belief, boy?"
Then only one word came out of my lips "Yes".
Then he spoke "I need to test you before I can give you a chance to save your purpose of your life"
I ask "What purpose are you talking about?".(I didn't expect that he would be thinking what I was thinking)
He replied with an answer I was eager to hear "I am talking about your so called girlfriend from the bus. But you have to qualify a small test."
I asked him why take so much interest in me and he replies that it is none of my business.
(How ironic! The subject is about me and I ask why and it's none of my business.)
Then it struck me like a thunderbolt. Why should I die when I can try to get her? It was just trying. Let's give it a shot.
"So what's the test"I asked, ready for anything and everything he throws on me.
He replies, "I am gonna take you back in time to a tragic story. It's your duty to tell me what's wrong. That's all..
Then you can go get her."
"Alright, not a problem.Let's do it."I said.
So in the next moment, I was in a small village, in the olden days where kings existed. So the story I witnessed was something like this.
There was a solider struggling to go to war as his wife wasn't allowing him because it is obvious that she loved him that much. But as you know, our solider loved his Kingdom, so he leaves her and goes to the battlefield. But in the battlefield, our solider dies. Let's imagine, the solider belonged to Kingdom A. So the king A, seeing the solider die, gets enraged and starts fighting so furiously that the kingdom B gets defeated and falls in the knees of Kingdom A. So our king A forgives king B and both the Kings become good friends and start living together. The king B believed a religion containing a supernatural power. It's main principle was peace. Why they attacked even though they follow the religion is because their kingdom was held captive by King C. (To tell you the truth, even I found the story boring. Such a jerk was the magician. But you just have to imagine or like me, better write it down like a flowchart.)
So the king C forces king B to attack King A. But as king B attacks King A, he hears the news that everyone back in his kingdom are dead. So to at least save the remaining people present on the battlefield, he accepts defeat. So our King A likes this religion and starts to adopt it. So the king C comes to know that king B betrayed him and goes to attack the both kings. (The irony is awesome, King C betrays King B, and King C calls it betrayal) So the king A also comes to know about the attack on his kingdom. So he sends away his only motherless son along with one of his trusted minister. He did so because he knew that he would not win against the king C if he were to follow the principle of the religion.
As expected, his kingdom got defeated and was killed. In the aftermath, the son who was sent away starts hating his father.
The end. (Not at all wonderful story to hear but it's a test, right? So I had to tolerate for my feather but the questions asked were easy)
1.The wife who didn't let her husband go,who loved the husband so much, didn't get her husband back? I mean did their love fail?
2. Why did the solider die for the country?
I mean doesn't the country save him? Is it one sided?
3. The son who was sent away hates his father even though his father sent him away because of his love for the son. Why?
4. The king who valued religion more than his son, got killed and defeated? Why? Didn't the supernatural power save him?
I was able to answer all the questions correctly because I knew how complicated this love thing is. The magician smiled. I knew it was the smile of approval and a little bit of satisfaction.
To be continued....
