“You don’t value sunshine until you are in rain. When you realize, it’s too late for an umbrella” this is what I’ve realized after going through the experience of my own. Once, I met a beautiful girl and I wanted to be her friend. I started talking to her on the phone with fake identity. I lied to her. As she was my neighbor we used to talk properly whenever we meet on the way. This process continued for couple of months. I kept calling her, and on meeting we talked as we were only neighbors. Only I knew I was acting two roles: as a Phone Friend and a neighbor. We were being very good friends.
Later, I realized that I had to be honest with her. So I told her every single truth; from the day of our first meeting. To my surprise, she told me that she had guessed it was me. I was so relieved to hear that. We became much closer than before. We started meeting each other more than we used to do. We called each other on alternate days and talked for hours. But, neither she nor I had taken our relationship seriously straight to the heart for the matter of love. We were just more than good friends. There was a bit of attraction but I mistook it for infatuation.
One day, she had to migrate with her parents to some other place. Neither she had my changed number nor did I have hers. So our communication gap increased to a great deal. Till date I haven’t met her or heard from her. And now she’s gone I am feeling something that I have never felt before: “I think I AM IN LOVE”. Now, I’ve realized it wasn’t just infatuation it was much more than that. I truly miss her. I hope she could return back and contact me so that we can give our friendship a new meaning.
