I had traveled around the globe for an year now, following my heart break off-course. Been to Paris, London and now in the United states. I had met loads of people and still never managed to get over David. It was magical for how I fell in love with someone I had never met but reality was just around the corner as the magic ended to be just another tragedy of a story. Since then I stopped believing In the myth of True love, I was sure it never existed.
My name is Nicole, Im a German national currently in the states attending one of my closest friends wedding, He is an Indian getting married to an American. Its funny how with technology the world has become so small and yet its a huge place when your lonely and heart-broken. It was more than a year now since David and I broke up and I never dated since.
But there was someone who made me feel otherwise about my current views on love. Sam!
Sam was an Indian National working for an Multi-national American company in the states, It was a co-incidence how I had met him. And the co-incidence happened again in two different countries where I managed to bump into him, since then I had developed a liking to him. He was a rare gentleman in a world full of heart-breakers, He knew to win hearts with his words, He always was poetic and that made me re-think on love all the time.
I was here in Orleans and he was in New Jersey on the eve of valentines day, Wasnt much of a distance for someone who travels a lot but then I guessed I was going to be all alone this valentines day. I knew he wanted to ask me out but I didnt think he would have, given all the pressure of work he had. He was a busy man for sure.
Somewhere In my heart I knew that I wanted him to be close, to lean on him and tell him that he was really special and maybe I was in love. But I was afraid, I didnt wanted to jeopardize a beautiful friendship for an elusive myth called love.
The dinner party after my friends wedding was in full swing even as it was nearing mid-night, everyone was enjoying. So I sat by a lone chair by the window gazing the night sky outside, lost in my thoughts of love, Sam & even David. A felt a tap on my shoulder and I turned around.
An elderly waiter asked me, “Ma’am are you Ms.Nicole from Germany?”
“Yes, I am” I replied.
“Someone dropped this letter for you, asked me to deliver it personally to the right person.” He said and walked off.
I knew I was the right person as I was the only Nicole from Germany attending the wedding but that was the least of my concerns, I curiously opened the letter and started reading it.
By the time you start reading this letter, It will be very close to clocking Midnight which also would mark the commencing of yet another Valentines day. I dont want to waste this one, I wanna make this count right from the first Minute. I have a surprise planned for you, walk out of the part alone, a black car is waiting for you.
Sam: The Fairytale
It took 2o minutes for the hired car to bring Nicky to Nauset beach where I was waiting for her. I saw the chauffeur hand her another of my hand written letter. She looked around and opened it..
I know you might be a little perplexed and curious at the same time but dont worry I’ve got this planned. I think it might be time to get your feet wet, walk towards the waves and let nature meet someone as beautiful.
She Smile and in that moment My heart skipped a beat as I looked at her from a Distance.
She started to walk towards the waves and I followed suit. She was a few steps ahead of me as I saw her stop and turn. She saw me heading in her direction with a bottle of wine and a couple of wine glasses and her broke into a heavenly smile. It was that sort of smile which could have pierced any man’s heart.
I walked straight into her arms and kissed her.
“So was this your surprise?” She asked with a smile.
“Oh Please! The night is pretty young and I havent started yet, Lets have a walk..” I said.
She smiled and took the wine bottle from my hand into her and very gently slid her hand in my empty one.
We walked for a couple of minutes parallel to the shore, till we arrive at the place where I had a red tent erected for our rendezvous. I could see the surprise in her eyes as I took the wine bottle from her hand. She was all smiles as I brought out two wooden chairs and tray filled with sandwiches from the tent. It was chicken sandwich to go down with the wine just the way she liked.
For the next few minutes we sat over looking the vast expanse of endless sea infront of us and the waves kissing the shore as we eat and drank in the cold of that night. Suddenly, I felt a hand touch Mines and a warmth passed through my body just like the waves that I was watching.
I held her hand In mines and gave it a squeeze as I heard myself asking her, “Would you like dance?”
“Oh dont tell me you got music too and that too out here” She said.
“Nope I dont But if you want to listen to any music Just listen to my heart tonight, It skips a beat every now and then. Thats pretty new for me”
And she Smiled, The last line seemed to have worked its magic on her.
I got up took her by my hand and pulled close to myself. I looked in her hazel blue eyes and held her tighter. In that moment as we danced to the music of the waves and the night wind blowing across us, I looked at her and I knew she was the one.
She was the one whose hand I wanted to hold for the rest of my life, She was the one whose smile was more precious to me than an wealth ever know, She was the one without whom the paradise would make no sense. I could control no longer my feelings and I confessed, “Nicky, I love you.”
Her eyes lit up and my ears heard her say,” I love you too sam, you are the one who held me right through. You are the only one I want.”
I saw a tear slip down her beautiful face, I pulled her closer and kissed those beautiful lips of her only this time she kissed me back and held me tighter. Our lips fought for supremacy over each others and we held each other on that moon light night. I ran my hands through the length of her body, embracing and caressing her. She didn’t protest and neither could I resist the my love and desire for her. I picked her up in my arms and walked into the tent.
That night, the desires of our mortal bodies took control over us. I felt like a sailor out to explore the unexplored and untraveled waters. The waves sounded rhythmic as they hit the shores and the wind felt cold no longer. Passion filled the air as I made love to her that night. Love making always gives you a feeling a divinity when its done with the one you want to love for the rest pf your life and that what I learnt in those dying moments of passion.
I looked down on her and even in those moments where she clasped for breath, she looked a picture of serenity as good as the nature herself. I kissed her again and again and again. “I love you” It was all that I managed to say and It was all that was needed as I enveloped her In my arms and closed my eyes.
Epilogue: Nicky’s Fairytale
We woke up in the early hours of the morning when it was still pretty dark outside and I was still enveloped in Sam’s arms. Our naked bodies brushed each others, I looked up at him and found his brown eyes staring back at me as his lips broke into a lovely smile. We kissed, holding and embracing each other for the next few minutes.
The entire night had been like a fairytale to me and yet I knew It was just the start of a lovely relationship albeit with a fear in my heart which I was about to voice.
“I hope this never ends between us Sam, I hope we go all the way”
And Just like a Prince from the fairytale, He said something that got etched in my memories for ever and ever.
“There is No beginning, There is No end.. There only is a world of True love.. There is always you and there shall always be me”
Sometimes for the best to happen to us we all have to go through our worst times and In those worst time we should never shut love out from our lives. When your are down and out In always say to your heart, “Nothing can get worst than this, Only the best Is to happen.”
Lastly, This Blog post is a Tribute to the Most romantic woman I know. I want to tell her to smile cause it has the power to change the world and Never Shut love from your life.
