This is Not a Love Story

I woke up early today. Uhm, okay, I really wasn't able to sleep well. All because I was so excited for Mr. Sun to come up and greet me 'Goodmorning little miss!'. This is the day I've been waiting for. He told me to meet him in the church today 'coz he has something important to tell me. I was really curious what it was all about. "Is he going to ask me to be his girl?" My heart skipped a beat at the thought.

HE (pronoun): stands for the person I've been secretly loving for quite a long time now.

I remember when we first met. It was in the most unexpected place to meet a guy; in a children's party. It was my nephew's party, actually. I was alone in the table when he approached and asked if he could join me. I said yes in my usual friendly tone. [Why not? I was getting bored that time and had no one to talk to.] He introduced himself, his name is Robi. He asked for my phone number and later that night, I learned that he goes to the same school I am studying at.

He told me a lot of stuff; his dreams, beliefs and even the story about his ex. I don't know why I'm not comfortable when he talks about her. Perhaps because, I can feel how much she loved her. Stupid girl, I thought. How could she let go of a guy like Robi?

Days passed. We got to learn more about each other. We watched movies, talked a lot and shared even our dark secrets. Before I knew it, the walls I created to protect my fragile heart was vanishing. Slowly, I fell inlove...

I don't want to think that I am just his rebound girl. It's not possible, or is it? He never told me he loves me. No, we are not like that. We go out and we hang out with each other's friends, but we never talk about our 'status'.

Until last night, he told me to meet him today at the church. Yeah, I already said that! So, I wore the dress he gave me on my last birthday and fixed myself a little. [I'm not the type of girl who puts a lot of  make-up.] I met him in the church and we heard the Sunday mass. I wasn't really able to focus on the mass 'coz my heart was racing as if so excited to hear what he's going to say. At the back of my mind I thought, If he asks me to be his girl, I'll definitely say YES.

After the mass, we went to the nearby park. I was so happy. Just being with him makes me happy. I don't understand why he has this big grin on his face. I can't contain myself anymore so I asked, "What are you going to say, Rob?"

He knelt down. I was so shocked! He started with, "I've been waiting for this day, Lily. I don't know how else to say this but, I LOVE YOU. Will you be my girl?"

There. The words I've been wanting to hear for so long finally came out from his lips. I was on cloud 9. Really! I wanted to hug him and tell him how much I love him.

But, I thought of something to erase the big smile on his face. I played a joke. Yeah, he's kinda cute when he acts like a little child. I said, "Rob, I'm sorry. I don't feel the same way. I don't want to ruin our friendship by jumping into something more than that."

He let out a big laugh! I was confused. Without blinking he said, "APRIL FOOLS!!!" I didn't know how to react so I just faked a smile. "You got me," I simply said.

My heart wanted to explode that very moment. I wanted to slap him in the face right there! But I can't. So, I just made an excuse that I have to go 'coz I have something to do at home. I turned my back, did my best to hold my tears and silently mumbled, "April fools, too." :c
