Old Time Short Story : God Is Fair To Us
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
::. Marilyn Monroe
“Damn it!”, shout Lisa
“What’s the matter?”, her roommate, Fay, sat beside her.
“I broke up with him.”, said Lisa.
“That must be hard. It’s okay. You will meet a better person”, she tried to comfort her.
“But I never trust a guy as much as I trusted him. It’s such a deep pain!”, she cried. Fay does not know how to handle the situation. She once fell in love but her love story was such a misery. Fay is a pretty young lady. Anyone may fall in love with her even only in their first sight.
She slowly opened the door and stepped out her pink-painted apartment, walked along the sidewalk, then put herself on a bench. Her past memories began to play inside her mind.
It was a dark night. The rain was heavy and the road was empty. She forced herself to wait for the rain to stop under the bus stop. Suddenly, she saw a body ran towards the bus stop. After a while, the guy tried to talk to her.
“Excuse me, what are you doing here alone in the middle of the night?”, asked him. He just watched Fay’s act. Maybe she did not hear me, thought him.
Reluctantly, she answered, “I am just back from a night class”.
“This place is not safe for you. By the way, my name is Hafiz. I worked there”, pointing his finger to a building next to a school.
“I’m Fay”, She introduced herself. Their conversation continued until the rain stopped. Hafiz was nice. As a bonus, he was good-looking too. Since the incident, they meet everyday, and as expected, their friendship turned out to be a love story.
However, things had changed after she heard that Hafiz’s parents had planned his marriage with his cousin. It was such a nightmare. All she could do was only by making her life as busy as possible so then she can forget everything. For her, God wasn’t fair for not letting her to live happily with her loved one.
“Fay..”, she heard a voice. All the memories disappeared from her mind. She turned her head. She couldn’t believe her eyes. She saw him! Yes, it was her first and only love, Hafiz!
“I’m back. I told my parents that I’m not going to marry my cousin. As the exchange, I’ve been sent to Australia to manage our business there. Can we start all over again? My heart is still yours”, said Hafiz without giving Fay a chance to speak.
With a smile, she hugged him.
“Hafiz, I’ve been waiting for you for the whole past years. I waited for no one else!”, she started to cry.
“God is fair is it? He is always fair to us!”, she added in sobbed.
