Just cant get enough with Friendster. I always check my account, hoping that somebody sent me a message. When I opened my account, with out any message, I felt sad *sigh* nobody misses me… When I checked everything on my home page I took a chance to read what’s on my bulletin. Something from my friend Weng got me to curiosity. ***I aLmOSt CriEd*** is the title. Very curious because Weng as I know is a tough person, a not so sensitive one. I read up what’s on that message and yeah, right it’s so sad. The message goes this way:
Mandy and Austin have been going out since 7th grade, now they are in 11th grade.
Mandy has been thinking of breaking up with him. One Friday afternoon, on their 5th
anniversary, Mandy and Austin where talking over the phone:
(Phone ringing at Mandy’s house)
Austin: Hey Baby Girl, how is it going?
Mandy: Alright, u?
Austin: Pretty good, so are u still up for the movie?
Mandy: Im sorry i can’t go, i promised my little sister that i would take her out to eat
Austin: That sucks
Mandy: Im really truly sorry
Austin: Its all right, so can u go tomorrow then?
Mandy: I cant, sorry, i have to go with Alyssa and her boyfriend to the mall.
Austin: U know, it seems like u have been avoiding me this past few days. First u cant go out to dinner with me because u have a paper due, then u cant come over because u are to tired, and today during passing periods u totally ignored me. I had something i wanted to give to u.
Mandy: Im sorry, im not trying to avoid you
Austin: U know what, I’ll just talk to you later, im going out for a drive. Love you!
Mandy: Im Sorry
Austin: Oh by the way, i bet u don’t even know what today is.(hangs up the phone)
Couple of hours later Mandy came back home and found a gift along with a card for her
on the kitchen table. She opens the gift and finds a beautiful necklace, then she opens the card and reads:
“Happy 5th anniversary, I love You!
P.S: I’m sorry for the way i acted over the phone.”
Mandy takes up her gift and the card up to her room and goes to sleep.
***1 am in the morning***:
(phone rings at Mandys house)
Austin’s brother: Hey Mandy, my brother got in a car accident and is in the hospital.
Apparently he was going over to your house because he wanted to give u a little note he wrote for u
Mandy: OMG!!! please could you pick me up and take me there?
Austin’s brother: Ya, ill be over in 10 minutes.
***10 minutes later***
Austin’s brother picks her up and takes her to the hospital. When they got there she goes
straight to Austins room where the doctors are putting a blanket over his face. His parents are crying. His mom walks up to Mandy and hands her a note.
Mom: Here i think this is for u
Mandy opens the letter and reads:
“I love you”
I love your smile
I love your kisses
I love your sensibility
I love your hair
I love your touch
I love your smell
I love your warm hugs
I love your everything about you
I love you
Never forget that
p.s: with out you I would DIE!”
(Mandy then starts crying and collapses on top of his body.)
Mandy: (crying and in a whisper) I’m sorry, I love u, please come back.
It’s so sad things happened that way. Sometimes we feel like we are into dilemma and confusion got us. We are so stubborn; pride conquers our hearts and minds. The message of this story is so simple yet meaningful: “Love someone as if there’s no tomorrow”. Give importance to the one who loves you, appreciate everything.
