I will never forget you.
I am, Susan Bennet, recollecting this story from the bottom of my heart. Nobody knew it even Mom and the best ever friend Jane. To be honest, it’s so painful to think of him so far. However, I believe that what does not kill us makes us stronger.
Max Stewart was a freshman in our school. His family moved to our place from Canada and, as fate willed, he was put to our class.
The very first thing that struck me was his eyes. They were endlessly mysterious, deep and so doleful at the same time. Anyway, I guess it was love at first sight. Since he had come here, I became a really flippant student. The only thing I did during the classes was staring at Max Bennet and when I came home I rushed to my room, turned on my record player and laid on the sofa. I was dreaming about him round the clock ...view middle of the document...
Every weekend we went to the movie theatre or skating-rink. Max also helped me to pull up my Math and I taught him to play the piano. In a word, there was absolutely uncloudless happiness. No matter how it is sad, it was far from the happy-end.
Once Max didn’t call me. Nevertheless I didn’t make much of it. But when I found out that he didn’t come to the school, I took the alarm.
Next day he was absent too and I thought he caught a cold. So I decided to bake an apple pie for him and visit the Bennets. To my great surprise it turned out that their house was totally empty.
In the evening Mr. Pickwic, our closest neighbor, came to dine at our house. During the conversation he let it drop that the Bennets returned home to Canada. This news shocked me and I became so upset that the
tears involuntary appeared in my eyes. The most offensive thing in this sad ending was that Max didn’t even let me know beforehand.
Despite the fact that I was waiting for some months, he didn’t drop me a line or something.
Eventually I received this letter in stamped envelope. Frankly speaking, I really didn’t want to open it. I didn’t want to read lines by person who treat me so cruelly. Anyway I did. Here it is, this letter:
My darling Susy,
I know that’s was hard for you. But I decided to explain everything and I hope I’m not late to be forgiven. The thing is that my mother had a cancer and her last will was to die in her motherland Canada. I think you understand that I hadn’t the right to oppose. Actually I couldn’t dare to tell you about our departure because I was afraid of making you upset. Now, when you know the truth, I must tell you that I still love you. Though we won’t return States, you had to know it all.
Such a short letter provoked storm of emotions. Of course I felt a relief that he explained everything and on the other hand I realized that I will never see him anymore. Well, it seems we are just not fated to meet anymore but I will never forget you.
