'Love' makes life a 'Fairy tale'
Like any other little girl I grew up listening to fairy tales like Cinderella, Thumbelina, Sleeping beauty, snow white etc which had me crooning over the Prince who comes along and saves the day for the damsel in distress, they fall in love and live happily ever after. And before I knew it I was dreaming about a handsome prince who would come along riding on a white horse and who would take me away somewhere magical just like in those stories.
As I entered my teens I was hooked on to Mills & boons where more often than not the story revolves around a Handsome rake wooing the only girl who seems to be oblivious to his charms when everyone else would die to have him. And then came the Vampire era which had me dreaming about my own Edward Cullen & oh even the Salvatore brothers. Being a sucker for romance I wanted my life's love story to be a chapter out of the best romantic tales.
Apart from wanting someone who not only loved me, I wanted someone who would be approved of by all my friends. I wanted a 'Mr Popular' who would be my eye candy of a boyfriend and a trophy guy. Anything less was out of my narrow mind's picture. But as love entered my life I realized how foolish and naive my idea of a fairy tale was. As love entered my life I realized you need no approval or audience to love that one man who rocks your world.
As and when I fell in love with this Angel who came along and taught me the real meaning of love, I realized though he is just an ordinary guy with his unique charm,he is no less than a Prince to me. For he is my Prince who has turned my life into a beautiful fantasy. He hasn't built me a castle but instead he has given me a place in his heart which is more beautiful than any palace and larger than any estate, it is my destination, my own peaceful sanctuary. Neither are there a line of servants waiting to do my bidding but instead he makes sure I can always count on him to help me. Nor does he make an appearance in the ball room and demand to dance the night away rather he takes me in his arms and makes the stars dance around us in perfect symphony. He hasn't promised me a 'Forever' but rather he tries to keep me happy for as long as we are together. I understand now that its not necessary to have a prince to make your life a fantasy but rather You need someone who can love you completely.
Maybe this is just growing up or maybe this is how true love feels like but Mr popular or not I dont care anymore. Nor do I give a damn if others would approve of him. He makes me happy and I'm in love with him. That is all that I know.
He is my Angel, my companion through good and bad, a simple guy who is more charming and enticing than any Prince. He is my Prince who makes me feel like a Princess and together we'll someday build our castle with pillars of love and trust which is good enough for me. And the way he loves me each second I'm sure even Bella Swan and Elena Gilbert would ditch their respective vampires to have him but Sorry girls he is all mine!!
