5. Time

I ran all I could. I wasn’t in the best shape so I could barely breathe. Though, I kept running because I just had to. It was difficult running in my heels so I stopped and took them off. And then I ran again.
We were meeting in the park. It was my favorite place in the whole world – and he knew that. He knew me that well and I felt so guilty for letting him down.

I was almost there. I was so close and that gave me a little extra energy. As I reached the park a single pink balloon flew towards me. I didn’t know why but I grabbed it and entered the park with the balloon floating in the soft evening air.
My hair was tousled and my cheeks were blushing, when I found it. Our place.
And for a moment, I really thought that he would be there.
But as I looked around, everything in me felt awful and sad. I didn’t know what was running down my cheeks until I realized, it was tears.
What a fool I was. I had let the most important person slip away.
I sat down the a bench, - The bench where we had spent so many moments together.
A bouquet of white roses were laying on it and I took them up in my hands.

I couldn’t let go of the thought that maybe he had left them for me. Silly me.
Why would he leave anything for me - The most stupid person in the world.

 

So - there I was. Crying my eyes out on a bench in an empty park - on Valentine's Day, and the only person I needed right now would probably never talk to me again.

I searched my pockets looking for my phone, but it wasn't there. Oh my God! What else could go wrong this night? All i wanted was just to get home and sleep, so I could forget about this awful night for a couple of hours. But of course I had to go back and search for it.
Luckily I wasn't that far away from the park so I ran back while searching every area for my cell.

That was when I saw it.
Right there was a single pink balloon floating in the air. And under it, on a bench - a girl was sitting.
I recognized her right away and for a minute it felt like my heart stopped beating.
Then I realized that she was crying. I couldn't see her face, because I was standing behind her, but from the sounds that were coming from her, there was no doubt.
A sound left my mouth as if I was going to say something, and she looked around.
Our eyes met.
And I smiled. She came. She was here. Nothing else mattered.

 

At the same time as she got up, I walked towards her.
Now she also smiled and wiped a couple of tears away. 
"You came", I said and looked into her beautiful eyes. I didn't give her any time to answer. I just leaned forward and kissed her soft  lips.  
"Of course i did", she whispered.
"I love you."
"I love you."
