I had three friends. Eric, Cathlyn, Carol.
Eric was chased by all the girls in our high school.
Cathlyn was one of those popular girls.
Cheerleader, sexy, and stylish.
Carol was just one of those plain and average girls .
Cathlyn and Carol were both totally crazy and wacko over Eric.
Cathlyn didn’t have to do anything to attract Eric.
For she was already attractive enough.
Carol on the other hand, showered Eric which love and care.
Carol wasn’t ugly at all.
In fact, she looked sweet and pleasant.
But she wasn’t a cheerleader, she didn’t were spaghetti-straps or tubes.
So like everyone expected, Eric chose Cathlyn.
For Carol was just one ordinary and plain girl.
While Cathlyn was labele d as the cool and attractive type.
Eric always insulted Carol.
Telling her what a ‘Plain Jane’ she was.
And how dumb she looked.
Which obviously made Carol feel so hurt and useless.
That’s life. Carol never gave up though.
She wanted to prove something to Eric.
She wanted to prove that looks aren’t everything.
She studied hard, really hard.
She became the top girl, and all the guys who once ignored her, chased her.
But she never forgot Eric.
Everyday, she put a red rose in Eric’s locker.
Always with the same words.
‘I care for you, and I always will’
Because she knew that Eric was facing a hard time.
Eric began to realise.
How dumb he had been.
His beloved girlfriend, Cathlyn.
Was flirting with other guys.
He regretted for choosing the wrong girl.
Cathlyn broke up with Eric later.
For she had found a wealthier guy.
Eric felt so cheated, stupid and dumb.
He went to look for Carol.
He knelt on his knees, and said.
“Carol, please forgive me. Do you want to be my girlfriend?”
Carol rejected him, much to everyone’s surprise.
She only uttered these words.
“You’ve suffered a great loss, so I don’t want you to face
another one”
Eric felt disappointed.
He didn’t understand a word that she said to him.
But they became good friends.
Did everything together.
Eric began to change into someone better.
Because Carol showered him with the love he never experienced before.
His ex-girlfriends had never treated him that way.
They just accepted him for his looks.
But Carol accepted him for himself .
She changed him.
Carol continued putting a red rose into his locker everyday.
With the same words. She never forgot.
One day, Carol didn’t turn up in school.
She didn’t come for a week.
At first, Eric thought that she was on a vacation with her family.
Because she told him that she would be going Hawaii with them.
But one day. He received a call from the General Hospital.
Saying that Carol was about to die.
She had been suffering from cancer.
But Carol forbade them from telling him.
Because she didn’t want Eric to worry about her.
But now that she was about to die.
She wanted to see Eric for the last time.
Eric rushed to the hospital.
When he saw how weak Carol was.
Tears began rushing down his cheeks.
He whispered.
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier? Why did you hide this from me?”
She looked at him . And smiled weakly at him.
“When I said that I didn’t want you to suffer from facing another loss, I meant this. I didn’t want to tell you because I didn’t want you to worry. I wanted to spend my last days with you cheerfully.” Eric looked at her.
“You can’t leave me!” he said.
“What will I be without you?”
“You’ll be who you are now. I will always be there by your side. Never forget that. Cherish those times. Live life happily. And one more thing.”
“Yes?” “I love you” And she died. Eric screamed.
He still couldn’t accept Carol’s death.
He had only spent a month with Carol.
A month. But Carol changed his life in a way.
A way that no one could ever explain. He regretted.
But he knew that Carol would always be keeping an eye on him from Heaven.

Sometimes We just don’t appreciate those people who really care for us.
Until they leave us. Until we lose them. Then we regret.
Outer beauty doesn’t matter; it’s the inner one that counts.
It’s better to tell someone how much you love them.
Rather than to not tell them and lose them without telling them.
You’ll regret Love is. When we fight till the very last minute.
Just to show and tell someone how much we love them.

Story for sore eyes

“Sam, it seems Jay is interested in me. Please help me out. How do I tell jay to get off my back and leave me alone?” My friend, Neha, on the other end of the phone was pleading with me for help. I told my friend sincerely “just tell Jay that you are already seeing someone. That should keep Jay away from you. By the way why don’t you go out with Jay. I like the name. The person cannot be that bad. Anyways you were cribbing to me some days back that you don’t have a love life. Give him a chance.”

Me and Neha; we went to the same college. We became good friends real quick. Since she was from a girls’ school, she had lots of gal pals and we became good friends. I am not saying that was reason for me to become her friend but that was one of the reasons. Nevertheless, we got our engineering degree and now Neha is in Bangalore, of course a software engineer. And me, a mechanical engineer located in Chennai. Me, like lots of you, preach and advice very well but find it impossible to practice. I can write a book on handling relationships, but I’ve never had a serious relationship till now. Have gone with couple of girls now and then but never had a “long term relationship”. Same with Neha, the only difference was Neha never preached and didn’t have a chance to practice. Neha was an average person in all sense of the word. Very consistent in academics, always getting the average score, Average looking. She had good taste and so dressed well but somehow guys in college didn’t notice her much. “They weren’t fortunate enough” Neha would say.

College years passed away as fast as all the good times in life do. It’s been two years since we finished college. I and Neha have been in touch. Courtesy: her Software firm. She has a phone at her desk and she calls me from the office no. She keeps complaining about the lack of love life. And she being a software engineer, didn’t even have a life. The day Jay bumped into Neha at health and glow, I got a call. She was bubbling with happiness as she told me “Sam, I met Jay today. Jay and I studied in the same school. We were thick friends and somehow lost in touch when I joined the college. It was a pure coincidence today. It was such a pleasant surprise. I am so happy. We guys are meeting up again this Thursday at the coffee pub. I obviously don’t have much free time as the project that my team is working on is nearing completions. Anyways Jay kept insisting that we meet up. I was in health and glow and that’s when……” She was very happy and was in a flow and I was thinking to myself “Why would any guy go to health and glow?” Then I figured everyone has a right to look good or atleast tried their hand at it. I remembered a friend of mine who wanted to try applying sandal wood paste on his face. What some people do to look good….and suddenly Neha’s voice jerked me off the trail of thoughts and I heard her sayings “are you even listening to me?” and the default answer from me “Of course I am listening, so what does this guy look like…” I hadn’t finished my sentence and Neha spoke “I don’t know what you were thinking but it’s obvious that you have not listened to a single word I said, before you spoil my happiness and corrupt my coding, let me hang up” before I could say anything, she said “bye Sam, I’ll call you on Thursday. Take care. Bubyee.” That week was hectic as usual. Monday came with the blues and the bit of blue got glued on to Tuesday. Then it was Wednesday, the countdown to Friday began. And came Thursday and so came the call. Neha was true to her word. I got a call from some landline no. from Bangalore and I knew it was from Neha’s office. I picked up the call and was expecting the bubbly tone in Neha’s voice but instead came a unhappy voice.

“Neha, what happened?”

“Day was a disaster; I’m still in a state of shock”

“But what happened, this got anything to do with you meeting Jay?”

“Yeah… Jay hit on me.

“Sam, it seems Jay is interested in me. Please help me out. How do I tell jay to get off my back and leave me alone?” My friend on the other end of the phone was pleading with me for help. I told my friend sincerely “just tell Jay that you are already seeing someone. That should keep Jay away from you. By the way why don’t you go out with Jay. I like the name. The person cannot be that bad. Anyways you were cribbing to me some days back that you don’t have a love life. Give him a chance.”

Suddenly she was shouting

“You idiot, you didn’t hear a single word I was telling you that day. You moron, sam, Jay is a friend from school days. We are from the same school.”

I was thinking what I missed; I knew they were school friends. Is there some unspoken rule that one is not allowed to date anyone from the same school. Then it hit me, but before I could say something Neha spoke first “I told you that I studied in a girls’ school and so did jay, her name’s jacqueline.”
