4. Memories

 

I woke up a lot early than I’m used to. I went to the balcony and I watched the sunrise. It was completely breathtaking! I went downstairs to check but everyone was still asleep.

 

I decided to go outside for a walk, just to take a stroll and think things over. I put on my jacket and left a note in the counter ‘be back in a while xx –Jean’

I didn’t know where to go. I was walking without any directions but it calmed me. The feeling of not minding what would happen next is new for me because I usually think before I act but in this case I’m willing to make an exception.

I walked pass a store most probably selling stuff made from shells and pearls and I suddenly remembered the Philippines. I still haven't decided on when I will go back but one thing is for sure, I will not be staying here longer than expected. I have 2 weeks left in London and I plan to make every second of it memorable. Not the dramatic kind of thing but I was hoping to relive the days I was here. To visit the people I missed and the places I used to go.

I was already outside the boundaries of the beach when I saw this park. Me and my ex boyfriend used to visit here. I recalled all the fights we had and it made me laugh but I remembered our laughs and it rendered me speechless. Tears fell from my eyes. I never knew remembering all the happy moments we had would make me cry. I tried stopping the thoughts but it just kept on coming.

I reached for my pocket and I felt a bump inside, it's the necklace. I stared at it and the more I cried. Here it is my weakness, right in front of me.

I grew up fighting for my own battles and I learn from everything I experience but knowing that I have this soft spot in me, it made me realize that even if I try looking strong on the outside I will still be vulnerable on the inside. I tried smiling but it made my heart cry even more. 

Then suddenly, music filled my ears. I looked behind me and I saw Gemma holding the earphones in place and she gave me a sympathetic look. She mouthed, ‘listen to it’ and left.

I was waiting for the music to start but what I heard was Harry's voice on record,

'I didn't want to force you tell me everything about your past but I do know that you've been through a lot. I just want you to know that I’m here for you..........' Then it stopped.

I thought there was another record so I searched for it in the iPod but there is nothing inside it except for that one recording. I removed the earphones and put it in my pocket.

I figured that one way to forget (even just for a while) my problems is to let it all out.

I stood up and shouted, 'how much more do I have to cry so the tears would stop?' I added, 'why am i still holding on to something I know I could no longer have"

I cried even more, "Just when I thought I found someone who can be my knight in shining armor, this necklace reminded me of the person......" slowly my voice lost its strength but I still continued my sentence, "............who used to be it"

After a while, I stopped crying. I sat by the bench not thinking of any problems but thinking of the memories I had with my mom.

“If you feel like giving up or you’re just feeling sad just look in the mirror and say, hold on just a little bit longer” those were the last words my mom told me before she passed away. Witnessing the death of your mother is completely devastating. At first, I didn’t know what to do but as time goes by I learned that all things have an ending.

 I looked up in the skies ‘Are you happy there mom? I miss you so much, I LOVE YOU!’

It was already 3 in the afternoon when I returned to the house. I took a bath, dressed up and looked in the mirror, "just a little bit longer"

I grabbed some food in the refrigerator and watched television. I suddenly got this urge of playing some music so I walked towards the door to the basement where the piano is.

I was slowly making my way down the basement when I saw Harry standing there, smiling.

"I've been waiting for you" holding three roses in his hands
