Unspoken Memories 1

31st December, 2016 11:50 PM:

She: “Hi!”

He: “Hey!”

He adjusted his glasses and looked into her playful brown eyes with a smile on his face. She looked pretty as always.

She: “I hope I am not keeping you from anything?”

He: “Not at all.”

He remembered the last time they talked to each other. Things didn’t go well.

She: “How was your day?”

He: “It was okay-ish. You know, the usual, work and chores. What about you? Did you make any new friends?”

She: “I tried to make some, but I am new here. It is going to take time. It’s like a completely different world out here. What about you? Seeing anyone new?”

He: “Nah! No one is pretty as you are…” He grinned.

She: “Okay mister smarty-pants. I get your point!” She chuckled.

He: “They say love has its own language, and it’s rather sweet.”

She: “Nice to know!” She winked. He unlocked his phone and put a song on speaker.

Young

We were so young when we thought that we knew how to love

Fought about anything, everything led to dysfunction

But we just gotta own that shit

Don’t let it go like this

Maybe we can go from this, yeah….

She: “Oh! You remembered. And here I was thinking you forgot.” She looked away for a moment and ran fingers through her gorgeous hair. She usually did that when she felt shy.

He: “I can never forget about it. Happy birthday love!”

She: “Thank you. Thank you, Andrew, for everything!” She was blushing like a twelve-year-old.

He: “You are welcome dear.”

We both know I go too far like when I wrecked your car

And almost fought your father when he pushed me in the yard

And all those nights we snuck out, like to meet up at the bar

Don’t worry, my love, we’re learning to love

But it’s hard when you’re young

Yeah, it’s hard when you’re young…

 She: Hey, it’s new year already. Happy new year…” She put a hand on the screen.

He: “Happy new year…” He put his hand on the screen. Tears left his eyes.

She: “Andrew, no matter where you are, I will be always there to remind you…”

He looked at his phone’s wallpaper. It was a picture of Aurora and him on the beach. She had a blue scarf around her neck which he had gifted on her birthday. But, he didn’t know she was going to leave him soon after that day. The day was 31st December, 2015.

Caught, we were caught up in the high, it was better than drugs

Too high to see that it would all lead to destruction

At least we both know that shit

We just gotta own that shit

I hope that we can go from this, yeah…

She giggled whenever he kissed her head which was once full of silky jet-black hair. It made him laugh too. He always tried his best to never to show his tears in front of her. But when she asked him to move on, he broke down. The hospital equipment couldn’t drown his bellow. But even then, he vowed to love her forever. All they had endured together only made him stronger.

Soon after, she passed away in his arms.

We both know I go too far like when I wrecked your car

And almost fought your father when he pushed me in the yard

And all those nights we snuck out, like to meet up at the bar

Don’t worry, my love, we’re learning to love

But it’s hard when you’re young

Yeah, it’s hard when you’re young

Yeah, yeah, it’s hard when you’re young….
