Do you believe in fate?
Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don’t.
But maybe what happened a minute ago was the proof.
That there were people who will make you feel that you belong with them.
It was late in the afternoon and the sunset was so beautiful. Orange streaks from the previously blue sky made you feel warm, the cold breeze touches your cheeks as if you’re being caressed.
I was waiting for the last train for the day. I’m exhausted, my life wasn’t what I dreamed it would be. Stuck into a restaurant cleaning dishes for the whole day, travel shouldn’t be a problem but I can’t afford apartment here in the city so I tried hard to catch up to the 5om train or else, I’ll pay for a fair which is quite high, if I can’t afford it I’ll just sleep on a bath house.
I checked my wrist watch to see what time is it. It read 4:58 I’ve been waiting for almost 10 minutes now, 2 minutes left before the train arrived. The train from the other side unloaded it’s passengers and left, that’s where I saw him.
He was standing across me checking his watch, as if he’s waiting for someone. He looked up and locked eyes with mine. His beautiful brown wavy hair plaid nicely on his face, the sunset glow made him like a statue, He was beautiful. I heard my heart thumped wildly against my chest, the feeling of being captured was lingering to my very skin. His eyes, the most beautiful eyes I ever saw. He was perfect.
I imagined, how fulfilling would be to wake up in those warm arms of his, to get closer to him every time I’m cold, to have him tell me all the words I want to hear, how perfect my life would be if I have him with me. It’s like this person in front of me, was made for only me.
His lips that was a perfect curve, I want to know how perfect it would be against mine, will he take every pain I lived with away when I’m with him? I wanted to get lost, in his gaze. I would leave everything behind for him. I needed him so bad that It almost hurt.
With that single split of second I completely surrender myself to this person.
How I wish I could come at him, ask him his name, ask him where has he been all this time I was searching, but it doesn’t matter anymore. If I would be given a chance to talk to him or be with him, I’ll forget all doubts and live for him.
Is it possible for me to fall in love with a man when I don’t even know his name?
The cold wind blew as I hold his gaze. I see myself with him, happy with him, but what I don’t see is him, will he be contented with me, will he love me back, will he be happy with me?
The man from the other side shifted his gaze and a beautiful woman came to him, wraps her arms around his own and smiled.
I shifted my gaze. Of course, I should’ve known. I laughed at my stupidity, of making myself believe in a fantasy, making myself believe in a dream that is impossible to come true in this wicked world. I smiled as I drank all hopes I had for love down to my memory. Bit back the wetness at the side of my eyes and let myself get drowned on the rush of the crowd as the train arrived.
60 Seconds earlier.
Do you believe in love?
Sometimes I do, Sometimes I don’t.
I never appreciated small things; I was born with a golden spoon in my mouth. I don’t need to get anything, to work hard for anything. That’s also the reason why I’m like a dead person. Breathing, but not actually living.
I agreed to my girlfriend’s request to take the second to the last train back to the city from our vacation, it was a long, tiring trip. I could’ve argued with her to just take a helicopter back but she insisted and I hate drama.
We reached Seoul 2 minutes before 5pm, I was bummed to death and I almost scold her when she said she wanted a canned soda from the vending machine, but being a composed man as I am I let her do what she wants. That was when I met him.
His gaze held me from where I stood. He was angelic, almost as if he’s gonna break if you mishandled him. The orange streaks of sunset illuminated his god-given beautiful face, whilst of his blonde hair that blew with the wind was as if music itself came to life.
How can a man be that beautiful, like a rare jewel in the middle of lifeless stones? My dead heart pound rapidly against my chest, and I felt the warmth I didn’t felt for years. This person in front of me is everything I need in able to feel alive once again.
Why did I found him here? Why didn’t I found him earlier?
His eyes that had so much sorrow despite its beauty, his perfect m-shaped lips that slightly open in awe makes you wonder how would it feel to have it against your own. I bet life would seem so much better, I bet anyone who’ll have him would be the luckiest man living on earth. I’m getting greedy. I need him with me, I wanted that luckiest person to be me.
How I wish I could jump off this trail and walked over him, I wanted to comfort him, remove the sadness that tainted his eyes, wrap him around my arms… and never let him go.
But will he be happy with me? Am I the one who’ll erase his pains, will we be together for as long as life allows us to be?
My girlfriend’s voice made me look over her as she wraps her arms around mine. “You’re dozing off…”
“Huh?” I asked and I heard the train from the other side, and before it completely covered the man I was staring at I never failed to see that smile of his, a sad smile from his lips. I felt my heart broke into pieces.
The train arrived and I’m still rooted from the same spot, I can’t see him to the crowd, I wanted to chase after him, God! I wanted to stop that train from leaving… why did it have to end this way?
If love was indeed true, then maybe I fell in love with that man, because as I see his train left off, I’m hurting as hell.
