How to even begin re-telling a story without sounding cheesy and mellow dramatic at the same time. here goes… My life is a constant struggle of loving at the right time with the wrong guy and loving deeply that you tend to forget your life and your worth as a woman. If someone asked me right now if I do regret it my answer would be no, I’m glad it happened cause now I can truly say that I loved this man who I’m with now, my best friend, my confidante, my lover, my hon.
Our love story is very typical, a best friend turn lover that’s how our story start. A very Tele Serye kind of thing. Let me tell you how it all started, first I’m head over heels in love with my ex and are planning our big wedding when all hell broke lose when i caught him banging another girl in his condo. Mind you it was 3 days before our wedding. I literally went numb for a few minutes before I threw shit at them.
I swear it is a very heartbreaking moment for me. My heart is hurting and my mind can’t process all of that at once. I don’t know what to do. I feel all alone. Then as if on cue my bestfriend Ric is calling me,I struggle for a moment on what to do, to answer it or not. But in the end I end up crying my heart out in his arms asking him why? Why me? What is wrong with me? Am I not pretty enough? He let me vent my emotions on him, then after a while when I’m coherent he ask me, what are your plans now?
I don’t know what to say at first, But i decided to call my parents and tell them what happen and asking them to do the announcement and returning of gifts, all of that. I said to them I need some time alone for myself. At first they are reluctant to let me go, fearing that I would harm myself. But when they learn that Ric is with me they finally concede.
Month went by fast… I’m still ashame to go out as if it was my fault my wedding didn’t push through, I’ll end up quitting my job and reclusing myself in our home, or at Ric’s place. All of them give me my space and a time to heal, Ric is always there with me, comforting me, offering his arms when I’m about to cry all over again, I barely notice that he is hiding something. His feelings for me resurface at that time because we were almost living together you know not like as live-in but close to that.
I didn’t know what made him snap up at me and said “You’re stupid you know, crying over that asshole who didn’t have the guts to break it up with you first, instead you end up caughting him having sex with her secretary and you after months of crying and yet still not over him. I swear we are shouting at each other, all nonsense things, accusations and all that. I said enough. He said enough. And he literally walk out of my life just like that, I feel really shattered as if my heart is having a breakdown.
Naturally, I’ll end up chasing after him, asking what his problem was? And he said, now you asked me. And he look at me and said you’re so dense Liann, I love you for the longest time and I’m so sick and tired of listening to you mourning your ex as if he is worth it, and then all of a sudden he kissed me full in the lips, I literally went numb for a second, did he just kiss me? I don’t really know what to say at first but when he is about to leave, I grab his arms and hug him so tight and I said to him, God Ric, don’t leave me please, I love you too moron. I love you. That’s when I realized that I’m so over with my ex, that I truly love Ric, not as an panakip-butas but more than friends.
And that’s is our story. How it all started and now at August 10th of this year we will celebrate our first monthsary as a couple. We’ve been friends for almost six years and now here we are as a couple, happily in love with each other. Truly god works in mysterious ways. Love comes at the right time with the right guy.
Happy First Monthsary Honey!!!! Love you…
