It’s worth it after all [short story #4]

It was love at first sight, They were so in love, with all parents involved and constant marriage talks that he was certain, she loves him. She had to. She couldn’t not love him after 8years of a committed and healthy relationship right? They like all couples faced problems and difficulties, but it was all overcome by love.

Yet his heart still aches, reminiscing that day, when she broke his heart in front of all his family, friends and colleagues. The humiliation was nothing compared to the hatred he felt. And to top all of it Her only defence was that it was a one sided relationship because she never said she loves him!

His believe in love faded that day and he started hating relationships and couples. His employees thought he was a sadist, His family thought he was mentally disturbed and his friends drifted away from him because they thought he’s just incorrigible. He lost everyone. Everyone he valued. He lost it all. He was so certain that his life is worthless that he didn’t think twice before slashing his wrists with the same knife he used to cut her birthday cake with.

Little did he know that fate had other plans. When he woke up the next day he realized that he was in an ICU and his nurse was a very beautiful woman who slept beside him. It was her. She helped him recover. He tried not to shake her awake but despite his attempts she woke up, and looked up at him startled. She started softly crying and kissed his face over and over, apologizing for her stupidity to let go of him just because she wasn’t ready.

Now years later, as she walks down the aisle, he feels like all the hurt and struggle in his life was worth it, to have a beauty so profound with him for the rest of his life.

    Last 4 lines ” all the hurt and struggle in his life was worth it, to have a beauty so profound with him for the rest of his life ” isn’t we all want to realise someday instead of reading it….?
