Flowers and Chocolates

Flowers-and-chocolates

Millions of fresh, fragrant flowers bloom to give smile on a girl’s face this season. Tons of bitter, sweet chocolates that can surely melt a woman’s heart were made to capture her love. To that purpose flowers and chocolates were made.

It’s true indeed that every girl loves flower and chocolates. Well, who doesn’t want a box of chocolate and bouquet of flower that come from a man’s heart? It’s every girl’s fantasy since they were little and woman’s dream come true when they’re old–to receive a thoughtful gift from the man they love or perhaps from someone they like. I will only be fooling myself if I say I don’t. But I’ve been asking myself this question ‘Is it okay to receive fancy gifts from the man who doesn’t stand a chance in your heart?’

That question started to linger in my mind, when one of my guy friends asked me for my address because he wants to send gift for me in Valentines’ Day which I nicely declined.

We’ve been friends for quite some time now. We always talk every night because I teach him business English relevant to his job and promotion. From just a stranger our knowledge towards each other grew deeper and our relationship as friends grew stronger with each passing day. He is totally aware of my standard when it comes to love and relationships. He fully understands the boundary I created to guard my heart and likewise I guard his heart.

Though I know my refusal may disappoint him, I stood on my ground and say no. Though the intention is pure as per him I don’t want to take advantage of his kindness and generous offer. I can’t offer him anything than friendship. People may think differently but I just don’t want to mislead him into something that will never happen in the future. And by the end of our conversation, I persuaded him to give it to the woman who already owns his heart which I believed made him came back to his senses.  I believe that those flowers and chocolates had served its purpose.

P.S

Hey! Just to set your expectation, ‘most’ of my posts will be all about love for the whole month of Feb-ibig. It’s just the middle of February. Lets continue to enjoy the love month! Share the joy, spread the love ❤

Right love at the wrong time

Everyone of us is in search of true love. We all embark on a journey to find our happily ever after. Among the billions of people in the world we want to know whose heart perfectly fits ours. In finding the person God designed for you, love and time should coincide. You don’t need to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. You don’t also need to say ‘yes’ to every man you meet just to make sure that you don’t miss your chance to meet your Mr. Right. Timing in love is everything. Right love at the wrong time is wrong love.

There’s a right time for everything and a season for every activity  under heaven. As a farmer wait patiently for the spring season, we can’t rush love like a fruit picked green or flower plucked before it blossoms. Our attempt to rush things can ruin its potential. Each season…

Speechless

It’s been two months since we last talked to each other and that was before he flew to Germany for his escapades. And now his back. I was not excited to talk to him again at all. In fact, I wish I never will.

He is the kind of person not so enjoyable to talk with,  he is a man of few words, very serious and straight to the point. He doesn’t have any mark of humor on his personality. Smiling seems like a boring chore for him. Perhaps its because he is a high achiever and he doesn’t seem interested to share a heartfelt conversation to someone his not close with-and I belong to that category “we’re not close”. Every time I talk to him I always wish for the time to end.

My dreaded day has finally arrived where I need to confront my fear and talk to him again. Our conversation was still the same, it started with the simple routine of exchanging ‘hi’, ‘hello” and ‘how are you?’. The same awkwardness in the atmosphere when we ran out of words to say. I still did a good job pretending, hiding the nervousness I feel inside, trying so hard to maintain my composure and sound professional. Everything runs smoothly not until he asked me the question that never in my dreams I imagined he would ask before we said goodbyes.

“Could you give me your love?” he asked.

“Wh.. Wha.. What.. What did you say?” I asked very surprised. I just want to make sure my ears are not fooling me. I cant believe what his saying.

“I said could you give me your love?” he repeated.

It took me few seconds to respond because I couldn’t process the information in my mind. I was speechless and dumbfounded. What’s wrong with him I asked to myself why his acting so weird? I tried not to be so assuming and think that maybe his referring to other things and not the direct interpretation of what he really meant since English is not his first language.

“Oh sure. I’ll try to send you pictures of hearts that symbolizes my love.” I answered coolly, hiding the tension that unexpected question brought me, then bade ‘sayonara’. I didn’t dare to asked what he mean by what he said nor wish to prolong the conversation because I’m not sure where it will end and my mind cant even process the answer to his question. I just resolved to make myself believe that I didn’t hear what he said. I tried to erase the question that still echoes on my mind.

I must admit I felt million butterflies in my stomach. It felt like the whole world stop and stare for a while just like the scene in the movie.  But what I was thinking? He is someone way out of my league. Well, I just tried to brush off the thought and just blamed the ‘kilig’ because its love month and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  Heart can really be so deceiving at times..
