|Ever wanted to ask some one the Questions - 'Will you be my Valentine?'....well read on....|
Will You Be My Valentine? Clutching an envelope adorned with a red heart and the text ‘Will you be my Valentine?', I started to take out the keys to my boyfriend's apartment from my purse. Valentine's Day was just 24 hours away and I could wait no more to surprise my boyfriend with the out & out romantic escapade I had planned for tomorrow. While inserting the key in the keyhole, I could hear soft music playing on his boom box. My heartbeat paced up thinking that even my boyfriend was in a mushy mood. Never would he have though that my business trip to New York was just an excuse to plan the Big Day, our very first Valentine's Day! With one crisp turn of the key the main door opened and I ran in and shouted,” SURPRISE!” in an excited tone. It was a surprise indeed, more so for him than me. I had just caught him with another woman doing the slow romantic dance, on his pre-valentine date. I froze on the spot, mind twirling with thoughts like, ‘Why me?'; ‘Didn't he love me the way I loved him?'; ‘Was he just pretending to be in love with me?'; ‘Am I not good enough?'......... This woman seemed like a pretty young thing, but from the dumb blonde varieties. Blonde she was, but not naturally, it was all thanks to hair colours we get now a days. They both stopped the dance and he said he could explain, but I wasn't listening. I was trembling. Tears swelled in my eyes and amongst the flood of my tears, I yelled, “It's all over now, you cheat!” and without bothering to hear an explanation, I headed straight out of the door and to my best friends house. Fuming and heart broken, I narrated the whole episode to her. I should have believed her when she told me that my boyfriend was dating another girl in my absence, but I was madly in love with him to even try and believe her words. I was hoping he would call, but he didn't. This made me conclude that the phrase ‘Will you be my valentine?' was cursed for sure. Flushed with hurt, anger, tears and a feeling of not getting back love from the one I loved, I fell asleep. I slept like crazy, no dreams, no distractions, only to wake up to the sound of the song ‘ I'll be there for you...'. Groaning I sat up in my friends bed only to find out my 3 best friends holding up a banner that read – ‘Will you be my Valentine?' – the same line which I was dying to ask my boy friend, ex-boyfriend I should say. They handed me card that said - You are beautiful No matter what he thinks Love will find you Your life doesn't stink. Think of your love As a mistake to a fake Dreams await you A new life you can make. Your friends are with you So bid the past adieu We are your lifeline & On this Valentine's Day We are asking you- ‘Will you be our Valentine?' Reading these positive and touchy words, I smiled for the first time since yesterday. Tears filled my eyes but this time the tears were out of joy and relief to realize that people do love me. The heartbreak was still fresh in my mind because it had just taken place a mere 24 hours ago. But I was cheerful enough to give each of my friends a bear and my reply that I would love to be their Valentine. So what if I didn't have a boyfriend, I still going to spend Valentine's Day with my loved ones who just happen to be my best friends & not my boyfriend. Trying not to think about my Ex, my girlfriends and I partied all day long, exchanged gifts and basically had a ball. This Valentine's Day was bittersweet, but definitely worth the experience. Now I tell everyone I meet that believe me, ‘Will you be my valentine?' is a magical question, a question you can ask just about anyone you love. So like me; forget heart breaks and mistake to fakes and celebrate this eternal emotion of LOVE! Tweet
