A Lovely Delusion (Short Story) - Chapter 3
A Lovely Delusion - Chapter 3:
Soon we fell in love with each other and let me tell you I had not felt like that in my entire life. It was so serene, so wonderful - almost unreal. We were planning for our future; a future in which I could forget the torments of my life and I could shut off those burdens of woeful memories that my parents and my destiny inherited to me.
One day, Hannah and I were sitting on the same beach where we met for the first time. She was leaning her head on my shoulder and was drowned into a strange valley of thoughts. At first, I kept observing her quite emotions: her stagnant eyes, her mild smile, her sad face - she was a mixture of all the emotions at that time. At last, I finally asked her that what is it troubling her? Instead of answering instantly, she leaned onto me and kissed my forehead and said:
"I want a promise from you, may I?
In my heart, I had already dedicated my whole life to her, a small promise was just a formality for me.
"Any thing sweetheart", I replied with love in my eyes.
Words came flowing out of her mouth as they were buried there for centuries.
"Sam, I cannot live without you. You are my life now; I cannot afford to lose you ..."
I kept staring in her eyes as she was managing to summon a bit more power to continue.
"Sam, I love you and I just want a promise from you that you will never ever leave me; whatever the circumstances may be; whatever situation is to come, you will be with me and if I call you, I will expect that you will come beyond every boundary and you won't let me down. You have to promise me."
She stopped like she has said a lot more than she had intended to say.
I knew, what she wanted from me and I was ready to give her that - I was mad about her; she was the only thing in my life that caused me any happiness and I was not going to lose her. I replied:
"You have my words Hannah. Through sorrows and pains, or blood or rains, you will find me standing with you. I promise."
She blushed and I saw that precious smile. It was then, when I promised to be with her whenever she calls. It is the same promise of which I talked about in the beginning. Everything seemed to be perfect, but then the bad thing happened, when I took Hannah with me to meet Joe and Lydia, and they did not even see her, or rather I should say, they were not able to see her.
