A Lovely Delusion (Short Story) - Prologue


Do you believe in fate? Do you believe in love?

At least I never believed in either of them, but now I do. I believe in fate but more than that I believe in love now. That is why now I have the courage to do what I am about to do. It may not be simple enough for many people to understand but it is totally crystal-clear to me.

She is standing on the far side of the building; waiting for me and calling for me. I can see her waving her hands at me, only because she wants me to be there with her, and as I promised that I will be there with her anytime she would call; I am going to fulfill my promise now.

Life and destiny often bring you two choices to be made. You are the one who have to make a decision about what are you going to do. Once in my life, my destiny offered me with a choice - to live with her or not to live with her. I could not even think about the second choice. For me, she is my life and I cannot live without her.

People call her a fake and a cheat person; I cannot believe them. I still remember her soft skin, her mesmerizing and hypnotic eyes, her strange but sweet accent; her unworldly, magical, silky and harmonious voice. I can still feel her long black hair dropping and slipping over my shoulders. I can even recognize her scent sprayed all over my existence and most importantly, I can see her.

My name is Samuel Gage. I am a 31 year old painter - by profession and by choice. I never married because of those extra burdens that I was being inherited with, and also because I never found someone for whom I may think that she is the one. I am really glad by the fact that I was not married, because then I was able to meet her and to fall in love with her. This is pretty much about me except one fact. People say that I am suffering from the Schizophrenia disorder and she is no more than a hallucination.

Schizophrenia: Very interesting prologue, Hunbbel. I have met a girl recently who I think maybe was just a hallucination, but if she were to appear, and wave to me, I surely would go to her. I will look for your chapter 1.

Welcome, I have a correction to make if you don't mind. the name is IINTERTRANS . and not Lintertrans. Actually there is confusion when you write first letter capital and all other small.
