A Modern Fairytale

Girl goes off to college, meets boy, falls in love. Such a cliché. Yet studies say that is how most couples first find each other. Somehow, having your fairytale relationship, that you've spent all of your childhood dreaming of, be considered such a boring stereotype is just so saddening. People don't understand the beauty of living it. No study can take away the feeling of your heart beating a million times a second, just because you're lying next to the man of your dreams. The one man who could make you feel needed, wanted. The one person who wants to keep you in their life just as desperately as you need them. No one can explain how much it hurts to feel your heart break. When your entire world is shattering around you, and the only person who could make it better is the same person who broke your heart into a million pieces. When finally, having everything you ever wanted means giving up everything you've ever had, you really have to wonder if there was ever a right choice to make.

2. The Break-Up

It was Thursday and I'd woken up to I find an email saying to call Jason as soon as I could. It seemed urgent, and most people don't have good news when they leave you a message like that.

He started out friendly, but then started to sound nervous. Talking like all he wanted to do was catch up with me, and as if nothing was wrong whatsoever. I was skeptical. So, I asked him about the message; He relented and told me that his sister had been sexually assaulted and that she was going to court.

I understood his concern for his sister , as I knew his family was important to him. Not to mention the fact that I had been in a similar situation to his sister's just a few years ago. Now, mind you, I hadn't had it so bad because I still had my virginity intact. Still, I knew the fear and the betrayal of it all, so was completely supportive of him being there for his sister.

Sadly, nothing in life ever seems to stop with things being bad, they have to get worse. That call had to end with Jason breaking up with me. Apparently he needed space and couldn't deal with the emotional turmoil his sister's assault had left. I broke down in tears and cried my eyes out, it didn't stop for the rest of the day.

I couldn't help it. I'd waited until the end of my senior year to have my first boyfriend. I'd given him my first kiss, and a few other firsts, I had given him months of my life that I would never get back, and I had began to properly fall for him.

Thank goodness I hadn't yet or getting over him would be so much more difficult. I cried for three days, and spent the whole two weeks I had before college with a dark cloud over my head. I was getting over him faster than I thought I would, but I hadn't been happy before I met him. He, at least, was able to make me smile.

Still, maybe it was for the best that I'd broken up with him. I'd already lost my best friend, Joe, over him. Jason couldn't handle the competition of a girlfriend with a guy best-friend.

On the bright side, Joe was going to the same culinary arts college as me. That and I'd spent some time trying to get Joe to forgive me. So, maybe college could be a fresh start.
