I barely remember our conversation. I told him that I've come to a decision and I don't see a future with him anymore. It was not an easy decision given the fact that we've been together on and off for 5 years. Some of you, dear readers, might be thinking that there was someone else, my future-husband maybe? Well then, you are mistaken. There was no one else. I wasn't seeing anyone nor was I going out on dates. So what were the reasons?
There has been always the so-called 'elephant in the room'. There was one thing going against him that I just couldn't ignore. He slapped me once. It happened when we weren't even together. We have broken up a couple of weeks back and he found out that I have a new suitor. He lives literally next door so news travelled real fast. He came over after the guy left and confronted me about it. (Now, doesn't this read like a romance novel? LOL) I reasoned out that we aren't together anymore and I have the right to entertain other suitors. Then it happened. It wasn't like a scene in Desperate Housewives wherein my head jerked to the side but hey, a slap is a slap. I tried to keep it from my parents but our helper told my aunt who in turned told them. They, along with my relatives and friends cautioned me about him. If he was already heavy-handed then, what more when he's married? Somehow, we ended up together again. I could honestly say that this is one relationship that had a lot of passion. I remember one psychic who told my mom that my relationship with J is so passionate that we'll always find ourselves with each other. The only way to put an end to it is to move away.
So, there I was 6977 miles away from him. I have to give him credit, he tried his best to keep our relationship going, sending gifts and making phone calls. Then he started pressuring me to commit to get married. When when when? The problem is, I don't want to get married at that time. Not yet. I was 26 but I still am not ready to tie myself down and start a family. I still have the whole world to experience and explore. I loved my independence.
The phone conversation was long and unpleasant. He begged me to reconsider. Like any other break-ups, it was heart-breaking. A couple of days after, I received a long-distance call. There has been an accident...
