SOMETIMES PEOPLE COME AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT..THEY GO AWAY WITHOUT YOU TELLING THEM WHAT YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO TELL THEM and it’s so sad..
So…this is a story of a teenage girl who is head-over heels about a guy who was too blind to see the unconditional love she had for him…that he even left the country, leaving her behind and she wanted to follow him or rather die instead
Ever since she heard his voice over the phone, she loved him instantly. Holly stills remembers the day when she came from her dance class…while chattering with her dance mates on their way home. the topic about guys came up, as it normally is with girls. “Did you know that Zack is leaving for America next of next week, on a Monday?” asked Samantha as she looked at her friend Holly. Lella looked away from her black berry with eyes that were so wide, yes she looked surprised about this “really” said Lella staring at Samantha. Holly was surprise of these news even though she knew that Zack was going to go away, but just did not know that it was this near. “Oh my God I’ve got to get his numbers!” said Holly desperately looking at both her friends. The two girls smiled as the watched her, they now knew that their friend was falling for this guy named Zack. For a moment Holy seemed to be thinking a lot…and yes it was about how to get Zack’s numbers, then it came up to her. She turned to Samantha wearing a smile that said I NEED YOUR HELP! because Samantha was dating Zack’s younger brother it was clear that there was nowhere else, she could get Zack’s numbers without a help from Samantha. At first Samantha made it hard on agreeing to get Holly the numbers, but then she finally agreed …because Holly could not stop nagging and begging her and Lella was getting bored by all the “boy crazy” drummer. A few days went by and Samantha gave her desperate friend the numbers and Holly was so excited the whole day. After cleaning up and making her way to her bedroom, she sat on the bed and thought for a moment. Then with a beating heart, dry throat and sleepy eyes Holly dialed the numbers and called her crush anyway. “Hello” said a smooth, like velvet voice. And Holly had already jumped off her skin with joy, but she could control herself and she and Zack had a great chat. Zack knew who he was talking to and he liked Holly as well. Everyday Holly would call Zack and they would talk for hours: she’ll ask how his day was going, if he had plans for the weekend and so on…
They both liked each other and it was not a secret to the both of them but in the “NAME OF BEING BUSY” the two could not see each other when they really wanted to. Holly need to see Zack but things would come up. Sometimes Holly would be free but Zack would be away and go out to events like Rocking The Daisies with some friends or go to town to complete stuff and getting his passport done, was one of the things that kept them busy. But still they would never stop calling each other. Then something new was happening in Holly’s life, every morning would wake up and the first person she would thing about would be Zack and before she sleeps she’ll think about him till 3am and then sleep. Holly is the kind of girl that thinks about a million things at the same time, she worries and doesn’t get enough sleep because all she does is THINK. Yes, she was an insecure girl …doesn’t sleep until she finds the solution to her problems one by one. Holly had never experienced how to be in a real relationship, so she didn’t know what’s lover’s love and dating was like because she never dated anyone seriously before. She only knew God’s amazing love.
One second last Saturday was coming up and Zack was going to leave next of next week Monday. Holly was just chilling by the front of her house with her friend and they were talking how about they hated school and couldn’t wait to go to College. Then came Holly’s other friend who goes by the name of Cindy… that day was just cool the weather was turning from being hot to be windy and a bit chilly, that’s how weathers performed in places that are close to the beach. So Cindy took Holly out for some snacks at the beach and also they had some pizza. The two never had this kind of time before Holly could see that some things were changing as they are growing up slowly. But still all could think about was her secret admire and she so wished to bump on him that day but he was away for some photo shoots. The day came to an end , but still the texting and calls never ended, even when Holly would arrange for her and Zack to meet…their busy lives kept on blocking and keeping them apart. What could Holly do her parent were strict as hell.
days and days went by but Holly’s love for Zack kept on increasing everyday. She once had a very long dream about him, she was sleeping and the next thing she was in a dream…her own dream. Zack was there of course and what she found funny was that he was one of her classmates and her boyfriend at the same time. She did not want to wake up, she was battling to wake up for she wanted to stay in the dream with Zack forever, but that did not happen.
The last Saturday came and Lella and Holly planned to go to the Camps Bay Beach where a lot of guys were at. The girls were sitting by the sad under the blazing sun and just enjoyed themselves, took walks around also shot some photos the beach was crowded . With attraction as their middle names everywhere they stepped guys will look and call them, they were most times pretty annoyed. Guys would come up to them #try_their_lucks and the girls were never mean, they would just smile at them and walk away. As they enjoyed themselves Holly was sending and receiving text from Zack all the time at the beach and she was so worried because he was leaving by Monday.
Sunday came and it was a blessing, after Holly came from church she went to watch her group of boyfriends who begged her to see them play a match, at the soccer field. Still has not spend anytime with Zack because he was busy packing…as his text message said to Holly. And the there was Monday …she called him over and over again, wanting to at least wish him a same trip but none of her calls or messages went through. She sat on top of her bed thinking she thought maybe Zack was in a place that did not have ADSL, WIMAX or WIFI she missed him. She was busy thinking of showing up at Zack’s house because she knew he was always alone at the afternoon. Just to surprise him. Then her phone made some beeping noise as she checked she saw it was a reminder and she viewed it, she read: Zack is leaving for America 2day wish him the best, and tell him that you love him..
Yes, Zack was already gone, who was she going to see by tomorrow? she sat there hopelessly…maybe he was already seeing the sun rise on the other part of the world and new York was going to be his first drop off. Holly sat still, she missed him a lot now that he was …gone and she started to sobbing and that same voice that was smooth as velvet came up as a whisper in her ears saying: I’ll be waiting for you on the other side…come when you are ready..Holly remember that I love you, only if u truly love me then you will come
Holly stared at the dark…and started to wonder, was she going mad or she had to make a decision by crossing the world for the guy she loves.
WHEN YOU CAN’T FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR WHERE YOU ARE…IT COULD BE WAITING FOR YOU BY THE OTHER SIDE
