Asides

If only I were offline….

Hello everyone, this is yet another piece of writing where I share my experiences with you guys. This is an incident which took place in my life and I can never forget or forgive that person.

To someone I trusted,

It was back in the month of August. Like any other Sunday, on the 24th of the month, I was whiling away my time with my phone. Just then I received a text message from my friend, saying that she has been given a dare where she has to introduce me to a friend whom he hasn’t met.

At first I was a bit hesitant. Before I could say anything, she introduced me to him. Without making the situation more awkward, I pretended to text as if I was interested. Then he introduced himself, I did the same. Our mutual friend left us both because she felt her job was done. He started to show more interest in talking me. This was all happening for the first time and I was interested too.

We started to text the entire day. Shared our likes and dislikes. Still today I feel he deliberately copied my likes just to impress me. We went on chatting the rest of the night. I got to know him better, at least that’s what I thought.

I started to think about him in school, at home and even during classes. I guess I had developed a little crush on him. I picked up my phone, only to text him. We spoke about the silliest things like chocolate to making our career decisions. I admit, I liked him. I guess he liked me too.

Days went by and we did not stop showing interest in each other. I still remember the day, he was alone at home because his family had gone out of town. We were speaking over phone at night and suddenly he stopped speaking. I thought that the network was low and kept calling out his name.

He then responded in a dull voice. I was worried. I asked him weather he was crying. He refused at the beginning like any other guy would, but them admitted that he was. When I asked him for the reason, he said he missed him mom. That made me melt.

I became emotional too. That night we cried over the phone, our only wish was to be there in front of each other. Though he was a big time flirt, he was a very emotional guy. I realized it that night.

But, they say that “all the good things have to come to an end”. I really don’t know what stroke him, he started to ignore me. No replies for my text. No calling back. I took a little while to understand why. But at first, I was agitated, frustrated, angry and sad at the same time.

Then all of a sudden, everything was finished. I have so many question running in my mind to ask him. Was that all conversations gone for a waste? Did he actually love me, or needed a break from his boring life? Why did he choose me to hurt out of billions of girls?

Why did I have to be online that day???
