Okay, this OS is inspired by my very special Millie cupcake (-Sharmila-, and only I get to call her that :P).
(Millie cupcake, not -Sharmila- ~ y'all can call her by her actual name ya know. :P)
She stood there shivering from the wind. (The memories actually.) It had been hours since she walked away, with a smile on her lips, a tear in her eye and a deep thud in her heart.
She knew she was doing the right thing... but as always, it wasn't necessarily the best
thing. She hugged herself tighter, as if to make sure she wouldn't break down alone.
He rubbed his eyes, trying to make the sleep go away. (The tears.) He had refused to leave his office, for fear of having to actually face the truth. He shook his head, trying to will away the memory burned in his heart, but it was ridiculous. If he hadn't been able to do it then, why try now?
A smile suddenly appeared as he remembered her. Her soft smile, her crazy antics, her cheerful nature. So much unlike him... and yet
Why was he so attracted to her? (So in love.) He knew he'd agreed to doing the right thing - and it was the right thing. But why did something feel so wrong
? Why did he feel like he had just made the biggest mistake of his life?
He stood up abruptly, trying to make sense of it all. He had to figure it out. He had to find out what he had just caused. He had to... give it up.
He sank down in his chair and closed his eyes. The sudden memory of their last conversation played heavily on his mind.
When she had sat down on the sand, she didn't know. When she had started writing random scribbles in the sand, she didn't know. All she could see now was a mass of random lines, all containing the same thing.His name intertwined with hers.
She would not turn back on her decision. (She couldn't.) She had made the decision to leave him; to let him live his life. She couldn't drag him down to hers. And she couldn't be brought up to his.
They belonged to two completely different worlds. And it shouldn't have happened. (Their forbidden love.)
But when it did. It caused sensations, flurries, every cliche imaginable. And it all seemed so right. So why did her decision seem so wrong?
Should she have tried harder to accept his world? Should she have tried to work things out?
All she knew was this. She loved him with a fierceness that no one could ever even begin to consider. She loved him with everything she owned. She loved him to want forever and always. She loved him to make sure she would meet him in every single lifetime they had.
They were soulmates. And that was the only explanation needed.
And a big thank-you to Millie cupcake for the creative license - although I didn't tell her.
