“Joy, my dear, please, don’t ruin your life, get up, otherwise, you’ll miss once again the important one of your life. Get up, come on,” one voice came to me.
I remember when I was a kid, it’s around 10 years back, when I was 10 years old, my parents got separated and I was handed over to my father because of my father dominating and powerful nature, my mother sacrificed me at my early stage because of my future or maybe something else, I was too young to understand anything and to feel any pain or anyone absence, my grandmother was alone enough for me to take care of me, she was the one who was everything for me, my mother, my father, my best friend, and everything.
My father was a big businessman and never had time for me. I was in a gold prison because I was not allowed to go anywhere and to meet anyone especially my mother. My grandmother used to say that mom was really loving, caring and respecting to everyone, it’s my father’s decision to be apart and to divorce her and she supported her husband’s decision.
I remember after few years of my parents’ separation my Dad got married and he along with his newly married wife shifted in a different big home and they had forced us to stay with them but my grandmother refused to stay with them.
Since we wanted to be free, so we’re in the same home and then we used to live freely together and we’re enjoying our life but just for few days in a week because whenever my dad used to get time he used to come home and stay either alone or with his wife I mean my stepmom.
When I got to know that my mother is getting married to someone I was so much excited to go to her wedding ceremony because finally, she was also doing the same as my father did.
At that moment I stopped believing and trusting in any kind of relationship and started living my life fearlessly and freely. No love, No tensions, No emotions, No family dramas and all.
I was really happy, doing whatever I wished to do, roaming around the world with anyone’s permission and restriction.
I remember when I went to the marriage ceremony of my mother was introducing me to everyone.
I met her would-be husband, he was really nice, an humble, caring and loving kind of person, like my mother, My grandma too went with me. We both were at the stage of life where we want to live our rest of life with lots of energy, enjoyment, and happiness.
But my grandma had always a wish to see me in settling down, I mean she had a dream to see me in groom attire.
She always used to check out girls for me and always used to tease me for a girlfriend but she knew that I don’t believe in relationship and I don’t believe in love and all.
At the marriage ceremony, she was moving around the ladies’ area only and searching for a bride for me.
Suddenly she saw a young allegiance, gorgeous, and innocent kind of girl. She was so attractive and beautiful that my grandma couldn’t stop herself from going there and talking with her.
Grandma introduced herself and started asking about that girl’s family background, about her studies and all.
After some time she came to me and started telling about her, “I believe that innocent cute girl is perfect for you, her name is like her beauty, Grace,” when grandma came to me, she had pronounced that girl name. she knows that I don’t have any interest in any girl.
Grandma started praising her beauty and personality
I was hardly 20 and I was about to be 21 very soon within a few days.
I remember my grandma arranged a grand birthday party for me, just to see me happy.
She always used to do all those weird things to cheer me up and she never wanna see me lonely, broken and unhappy with my life.
She tried all the possible things to keep a smile on my face and smile on her face too, because of my happiness.
She had invited my mom and dad too, mom came with her new husband and my father was with his new wife.
I was really feeling left out at that party and was really upset and unhappy because of my parents’ annoying fight and unexpected behavior with each other.
Grandma had invited one more family and it’s Grace’s family, I was surprised and shocked that still, grandma was searching hope in me. She had done these things just to see grace in my life as a life partner but I was really far away from these kinds of feelings and emotions. I was too young to bear these kinds of relationships.
After cake cutting, everyone started enjoying the party but I went back to my bedroom, I didn’t wanna spoil the party but at the same time I was angry, I was feeling left out and my mood was completely off, even though my whole family, in fact, my parents and their life partners were all together there with me in my happiness. They all were cheering, enjoying and celebrating with full enthusiasm.
My grandma came to me when I was inside my bedroom and made me understand life.
“My dearest son, what happened my life, it’s your birthday, it’s your day, you need to cheer up today,” she started asking and then trying to make me happy.
“Nothing, grandma, I just wanted to be alone, I don’t wanna go out in this fake world and fake people and their fake relationship,” I replied to her with showing my emotions.
“But it’s a life and you have to live your life with full passion and happiness. You can’t skip or run away from the situation and with people and relationships, you gotta go and have fun in your life,” she started forcing me to come out of my loneliness and sorrowful life.
“I invited that girl today because of you.
I genuinely feel that this girl is perfect for you and she’s gonna bring you out of this condition, she’ll definitely fill your life with love and only love,” she finally came to the main point.
“Are you crazy or what, you know, I don’t like all these nonsense things, you know there’s no such kind of space for anyone for anything. I’m not gonna do this,” I replied with angry face and tried to explain my situation, but she was mother of my father, she didn’t listen to anything and forced me to do whatever she had wished, I couldn’t able to make her understand and wouldn’t wanna hurt her, so I didn’t have any choice but to go out to meet her, and I did, I went out and started showing my fake happy and smiley face to everyone.
When she saw me, she came to me immediately and while coming towards me she wished me happy birthday, I replied with a genuine smile to her. We started talking to each other but I don’t know, I was still not sure that I may talk to a girl.
We were talking to each other a lot but I was feeling uncomfortable talking with her but very soon my hesitation was gone.
My grandma saw us talking and was really happy that I’m being on track now but it’s just a formality because of my grandma’s happiness, I did all.
After that, she forced me a lot to meet her again and again,
She started calling me and I unwontedly had to answer her calls and talk to her.
“Hey, it’s me, can we meet somewhere,” it’s her voice came out from another side of the phone. I didn’t wanna meet her again because I was not really keen or interested to have any relationship at that point in time, but anyhow I responded to her with yes.
We met in a park because I don’t feel comfortable anywhere else, I get suffocate very soon if I don’t get fresh air.
“Hi, how are you,” she asked me while shaking hands.
I’m good, what about you,” I replied and asked her about her condition.
Do you know…… I like your nature, your attitude, your behavior, I like your personality, I don’t know what is this but I started feeling good about you,” she indirectly purposed me.
“Are you purposing,” I asked her instead of reacting.
I don’t know, but I genuinely feel for you, I said,” she replied while shying.
I think you have known me these days when we met so many times, I am not gonna bear any kind of relationship, I’m not good enough to love you or feel for you, I’m so sorry, While showing my attitude and rudely behavior, I just walked away, I didn’t even see her that she was feeling pain and perhaps crying, I didn’t even see her tears, I was really ruthless at that point of time.
When my grandma knew about that incident and she went to grace and made her understand about my upbringing and painful life, then grandma came back to me and started making me understand again, but I was not ready to listen to her, because I was not in a situation to bear any kind of relationship, especially love kind of relationship.
I started giving an example of my parents and told my grandma the exact reason that I don’t wanna do the same with grace. I became so rude day by day that I started feeling annoyed, angry and unhappy.
I remember after a few days later my dad came to me and
“I know, I am the only reason for your this situation, and your this behavior, I know, I couldn’t give that life, the way you expected or wanted from me. I know, I am never gonna be take care of you and it’s only you who had always managed yourself in every situation and condition of yours.
But I just wanna tell you one thing that without love, life is nothing, this was the only reason why we got separated, Love had disappeared between your mom and me and finally, we had decided to be apart,”
The first time in my life, I had seen that dad was being emotional, his words and knowledge were going bounce on my head.
“Dad, I’m not able to understand and I really don’t wanna understand these things, I’m happy alone, I’m living my life as per my condition, my willings,” I replied him while showing my fake smile, he was knowing that I didn’t wanna talk about anything especially what he was trying to tell me.
“Ok, I’m not gonna interfere in your life but just wanna tell you that if there’s no love in our life, we are not gonna be happy even though you have everything in your life,” he replied and left the room immediately.
I was really surprised by his behavior, because the first time I felt that he’s right, he talked less but gave me the biggest lesson of life, in fact, he was submitting himself to me, he agreed to my every point, he didn’t even react to my misbehavior. I was not understanding why all of sudden he’s changed, I think maybe because of grandma, she could have explained to him my exact condition.
I remember the very next day morning the doorbell rang, when I opened the door, I was really shocked and happy too because my mom was outside, she came inside and stood in front of me, I welcomed her home and hugged her, I was really happy at that moment and sad too because I wanted to cry but couldn’t in front of her, but since she’s a mother so she can understand me better than myself.
She hugged and kissed me on the forehead and said: “you are being slimmer than before, now you’re looking fit, what kind of diet plan you’re following, just tell me, I’ll also take.”
“Mom, are you all right, what happened to you?” I asked her, because of her different tentative behavior.
My mom also made me understand and told me to move on in my life and have love in my life then only I can live the happiest life.
“What happened to you, why you are cursing your life,” she replied with a strange face.
What have I done, I’m all right, you don’t worry,” I replied aggressively and tried to show my fake smile.
“I know you, ok, so don’t tell me, why don’t you understand, it’s both of us decided to be apart, and because of your future and career, your father was the best guardian,” she again replied the same thing which, dad had told me.
“I can understand, what can I do now, I’m happily living my life. I replied while showing an argumentative nature.
“My dear understand, without love, you’re not gonna be happy, you need someone in your life to fill your heart and life with love. I saw that innocent girl, she is perfect for you, all I can say that don’t miss even a single opportunity to get love in your life.
Suddenly one voice came to me, it’s a grandma.
“Joy, please don’t do this to your life, get up,” what happened grandma,” I asked.
“She is going somewhere else, living alone because of your rejection, now she’ll be the same as you, a lonely, a broken heart, an unhappy, lack of love in her life,” she replied with these big words.
“Are you serious, where she is going,” I asked again.
“Am I joking or what, is this a joke, she’s going permanently out of the country, she’s not gonna come back,” she again told like that.
Where is she going?” I asked her.
“I don’t know but, she is right now at the airport, she said that she has air Canada flight, so you don’t have much, get up, go, get her in your life, you have only one hour,” she replied in a filmy style.
I remember after that moment, I started running, somehow I reached the airport but, air Canada flight was taken off by the time.
I was upset and angry at myself that I should have said yes to her when she purposed me.
Suddenly one voice came “you are here, what are you doing,” when I turned back it’s grace, I couldn’t even think of anything but hugged her so tightly that she was not able to breathe properly.
“Are you all right,” she strangely and shockingly asked after looking into my eyes.
“No, I mean, now I’m ok,” I replied while smiling.
“What happened suddenly,” she asked again.
“Nothing, just realized, if someone whom you have feelings of love for that person and if that person is missed out from your life then how painful the life is! It’s really Unimaginable,” I again said sorry for my rude behavior.
“By the way, what are you doing in the airport,” she asked again.
“You tell me, you’re supposed to be in air Canada flight, you missed the flight or what?” I suddenly realized that and then asked.
“Why would I suppose to be in that flight,” she again asked shockingly.
“You’re going out of the country permanently,” I again asked confusingly.
“Who did say to you, I’m not going anywhere, and one more thing my father is the pilot of Air Canada flight so I usually come to drop him here and today same happened,”
when she replied that I was really shocked because grandma told me something different story, while speaking to her, mom and grandma came to us and started laughing and said “now you realize, we wanted to show you that how much you need love in your life, we are so sorry but we didn’t have any other choice,” it’s all planned from grandma and mom, grace was too unaware for that, but any way I was really happy that finally, I got someone who loves me unconditionally.
