A SHORT STORY ABOUT LOVE AND HOW WE FIND IT WHERE WE LEAST EXPECT

LOVE AND MORE LOVE

As kids,we never knew much about anything so there came a time when boys were boys and girls were girls. The boys would sit in class and make fun of girls during breaks. The poor adolescent girls would sit around in circles and confess their secret crushes on their male counterparts. Kris was one such boy and Mary was one such girl. They were not friends nor did they like each other. In fact,they hardly lived in the same world. Curious as I was to find out all that the boys talked about, I made one of the boys a friend. His name was Nelly. He did have a lot in store for me. According to him,Kris and his friends had been constantly making fun of Mary's big eyes. Little did poor Nelly know that he had revealed a dark secret to a dark soul. Without much ado, I skipped my way happily to the field to share the information with Mary who was a close ally. She instantly burst into tears and the next thing I knew,I was narrating the ghost story in front of our class teacher who was furious to say the least. Needless to say, the boys were punished and there ended whatever friendship there was between me and Nelly.

Years later, we joined high school. Things were now different,the girls would sit and laugh at the boys who would meet to confess their crushes on their female counterparts. One event that caused a stir was Kris' sudden crush on Mary. He fell hard and so did she. The incident back in the days about their feud became a joke and even I was surprised. They made up and are together to this day. Sometimes Nelly and I meet on the streets and I am tempted to blurt out that we are the reason they worked out then I remember what it cost him so I smile, wave and walk away. Love is a mystery. People find it in the oddest places.
