“The tragedy is not that love doesn’t last, the tragedy is the love that lasts”. My life was so dull and boring but the second I laid my eyes on her; my life got a purpose. I don’t want to compare her beauty with anyone; she was out of this world; she was amazing. Katherine the love of my life. I met her in high school and instantly fell in love with her. I never thought that she would love me the same way I loved her. But as it is said; “life is not a bed of roses”….
Katherine and I were enjoying a rave. Everyone was dancing enthusiastically. I went to bring a drink for her but when I came back Katherine was not herself. She was drunk and was stripping off her clothes. Everyone was looking at her, recording videos, making fun of her. I ran towards her but some boys grabbed me.
‘Don’t be so mean, let us have some fun’. Said the mean and egoistic boy of our high school; Sam.
I told him to let me go, but he didn’t. I wanted to save Katherine, my Katherine.
‘Chuck it guys’. ‘Don’t be so curt Sam’. ‘It’s about Katherine the love of his life. Isn’t it Stiles? Ohhh! Stiles the true lover of Katherine . The love birds of our High school’. Said by the most beautiful, gorgeous and fickle -Nora; she was a lacrosse player and cheer leader in our school. I didn’t know what people see in her, I just hate her. She was so egoistic, mean and irritating type of girl. She was the girlfriend of Sam.
I tried my level best to save Katherine but those boys were not letting me go. Everyone was laughing at us. Sam hit me hard on my stomach; he was beating me brutally with an iron rod. Everyone was just looking at me but nobody dared to stop them. Sam was the head boy of our school and nobody ever dares to stand against him or stop him. When he got tired and bored his friends left me. I wasn’t able to stand; my wounds were bleeding but I didn’t care for myself I gathered all my energy and ran towards Katherine. I took off my jacket and put it on her. She was drugged and she didn’t know what was going on. I took her at her home.
On the next day when I and Katherine came to school. Everyone was laughing at us. Katherine was baffled. Students were watching the video of Katherine which they recorded last night. She started crying and hid behind me. Suddenly, she held my hand and took me to a classroom. She was crying; so was I. I told her to be normal and forget everything; she would be fine. But I got an unexpected reply; she asked me to bring water for her. I looked at her; something was holding me to stay with her but I left her there. I ran towards the cafe in our school and when I come back I heard loud noises. Everyone was shouting. I ignored those voices and went to the class but Katherine was not there. Then I went outside to look for her I saw people standing under the building and shouting. I saw my Katherine standing on the top of the building. I was stunned; I didn’t know what was happening. Katherine looked at me and smiled; that smile killed me from inside; it was like someone pierced my heart. And then she jumped from the building. At first I was in a state of abeyance. I couldn’t understand what happened; at first she was with me and then she was lying in front of me on the floor covered with blood. I ran towards her but my friend Stefan grabbed me. I was shouting, yelling. I wanted to hold her. But then everything went blur and I got unconscious.
The first thing I knew when I woke up is that I started yelling the name of Katherine. My parents were standing near me; Stefan was sitting next to me. I realized I was in my room. Stefan and my brother were controlling me. When I got normal Stefan told me that I woke up after five days. And the thing which I never wanted to hear is that “Katherine is dead”. Katherine left me all alone. I was alone and shattered. I didn’t even get to bury her. The only person I loved the most in my life left me here. But I had hope that I would see her again one day on the Day of Judgment.
It took me four years to get normal. Then I turned my grief into rage. And decided to take revenge from Sam and Nora. They both made a huge pitfall and were going to pay for that.
I came to know that they both got married and are living in this town. I made the scenario. And went at their house. They were sleeping. I shot Sam on his leg and they both woke up and started yelling.
‘Stiles you?’ Said Nora. ‘What are you doing here? Please! leave him. Please!’
I slapped her on her face and she fell on the floor. She started bleeding from her head.
‘You killed her; she was innocent and you’…
I dragged Sam and took him to the main hall of their house. Sam was crying in agony.
‘What do you want Stiles?’ Said Sam. ‘Please forgive us. We didn’t kill anyone’.
Nora the Prom queen of high school was sitting on the floor and begging me to spare the life of her beloved. She was helpless and fragile just like my Katherine. I was feeling happy.
I told them that I will spare their lives but at one cost…Sam has to divorce Nora. They were staring at me and I was so calm and happy. Nora was begging me and Sam was in a state of bewilderment. I shot Sam on another leg and then he agreed to divorce Nora and he did the same.
Nora was shattered. She was sobbing. She loved Sam a lot. Sam divorced her.
I grabbed Nora from her hair and took her with me. She was crying she wanted to go back to Sam.
‘Please let me go? You got your revenge he divorced me’. ‘Now let me go’. Said Nora.
I didn’t talk to her. I just put her in the trunk of my car and took her into the woods. I took her out of the car and hit her. I was beating her brutally. And then she got unconscious. After she woke up I struck her hard on the ground. She could see her death inside my eyes. She was scared.
‘You took her from me Nora’. ‘She was helpless and you drugged her’. I said these words out loud.
She was not able to speak but still I could hear her murmuring. ‘I am sorry’. ‘I didn’t know that she would kill herself’. ‘Please! Let me go Stiles’.
‘She didn’t kill herself; you did’. I kicked Nora in her stomach. Blood was coming out of her mouth.
Then I stopped and tied her up with a tree. And left her there all alone. And came back home.
I was lying on my bed and contemplating about; what I did with Nora. She was also a girl and I left her there all alone and tied her up with a tree. What would be happening with her? It has been two days that I left her there in the woods without any water and food; is she still alive? I castigated her already when I separated her from Sam and why did I take her with me? If Katherine would be here today she would hate me for what I did with this girl? I am not a murderer; I can’t be this much cruel. I ran and drove my car to the woods.
When I reached the woods I looked at her. She was unconscious; insects were crawling on her body, they were moving inside her wounds. She was here for two days. How can I be so cruel? I untied her and took her to the hospital. She survived but was in critical condition. She woke up after two days.
‘Why did you save me?’ Said Nora
I was quiet at that moment; I didn’t know what to say to her. Then I replied. ‘You got your castigation Nora; it’s over’.
‘I ruined your life and you saved me?’ ‘I am not worth saving Stiles’.
‘I forgive you’. ‘Katherine didn’t want this’. I replied
‘I have lost everything’. ‘My parents died when I was seven years old’. ‘Sam was the only person who was holding me together and I lost him too’. ‘I have no place to go now’. Said Nora
I didn’t know what was happening inside me but her words were killing me. She had lost her parents; there was no one who could guide her through the right and wrong paths in her life. I snatched Sam from her. Her smile was gone because of me. I am the reason that she literally saw death.
‘I am sorry for every pain that I caused you’. ‘I am sorry for the part that I played in your life by inflicting pain on you’. ‘Katherine is gone’. ‘She will never come back’. ‘She is long gone’. ‘I should have let her go.’ tears were flowing down my eyes; but I continued. ‘I know you have no place to go’. ‘Would you like to stay with me at my house if it’s okay with you?’ ‘I am all alone now’. ‘I could use a friend to mourn over my misery’.
She was just looking at me, starring at me with bright little eyes. I got the answer why everyone praises her beauty. They saw her outer beauty. An innocent girl who had no guardian, lived all her life without them. I saw her inner beauty; after what I had done with her she still forgave me.
“I chose to be your friend but falling in love with you was out of my control”.
