Send my Love to Heaven
What can I say about a girl that I love since I was ten years old... I love the way she taught me when I commit mistake. The way she fusses over silly things & even the way she cries over some sad silly late night shows. Somehow I wished I could have told her that I love her but now there’s no hope in doing so. For now it’s rather too late for me to do so.
She was my best friend & I have known her since we were small. She knew all my secrets, which reveals my feelings for her. That I love her not only because she’s pretty & smart but also the way she laughs at everything & the way she sees life & love.
I could still remember the first time we met. I was five ...view middle of the document...
This used to be as our hideout. We used to goof around. Play ball & go biking together. He was my best friend & I kind of miss him”. You know she smiled and said “I’m here now. We could do things you do with Troy & I could be your new best friend. It could be exciting to have one. I could learn to play ball & I have my bicycle so we could go biking together. Now how does that’s sound to you?” I smiled and said, “Well, that sounds good enough” Then she held her hands to me and said, “It’s a deal then!” And that’s how it started.
So we become best friends and I was kind of strange for she was a girl and there are many things which I was a little bit hesitant to indulge her like catching frogs. Swimming in the lake & climbing trees. But then she tried and did everything just to please me, even time when she fell off the bike trying to catch up with me in a race we had and I was the one who bandage her scrapped knee. I could still remember the time when she hit the window of her neighbor when we were playing baseball and it was I who talked to Mr. Chambers and promised to pay for the damage, which meant having to lose a week’s allowance. I remembered the time when I fell off the tree when I tried to rescue a kitten trapped in a branch. I even fought with tough guys when they try to tease Petiza and made her cry and I ended up having black eyes, and bruise cheek. I remembered Petiza crying as she placed an ice bag over the damaged eye and later gave me a get-well kiss. I did everything to please her and I gave everything her little heart desires.
The lake was our favorite place to hang out. We had our Saturday swimming routine. We would pack our food and later eat them under the big oak tree. There was a special branch in which the two of us could sit together and tell each other’s dream. She dreams of being a ballerina and she pursuit even if they were quite impossible. It even makes me like her even more.
As years went by, I noticed that my feeling towards her is slowly changing. Somehow, I thought it was just simple crush case. But when I started thinking about her at night, dreaming of her all the time, it made me feel so alive. Whenever our hands touch, I could fell the tingling sensation in my spine. Once when we were at the lake having our Saturday swim routine and as I carried her towards the water edge, I had the feeling of not wanting to let her go. I just wanted that moment to continue hoping it would never end. I then realized I was slowly falling in love with my best friend.
Many times I tried to deny my feelings to her, for I was scared to imagine of what would happen if ever I’d try to tell her how I feel about her. I was scared because she might think that I’m taking advantage of her and I was afraid of loosing her and our relationship as best friend. So I just kept my feelings hidden.
We reached the age of fifteen and I noticed that Petiza grew lovelier each day. How my heart aches whenever I see boys glance at her...
