Chapter 2: Everything's Changed
1 month ago · · Stress,
I wasn't expecting to fall in love this quarantine. But I did. Hard.
He isn't from here. He just came here to work for his cousin for just a year. I really didn't like him at first since we only met on Facebook and played online games at first. But when we finally met face to face, I don't know, something happened. He had this charm, I won't deny it. He was tall, had a good physique and his shyness was cute.
We became friends and chatted nonstop. We started going out alone, without our friends and he called it a date and I thought it was cute. One thing led to another, we stared dating, like we held hands, we kissed and some other things. I asked him why hasn't he made it official yet. He told me he didn't want a commitment since he'd be going back to his hometown in a year and because we had different religion. I'm Catholic, he's a Muslim. It really was hard. But then, we talked and we took a chance.
Everything was going great. That feeling of exchanging our first I love yous, meeting his family; I had butterflies every time. I really felt that we were in love. He kept telling me he was so ready to settle down and have kids, and I did too. We started planning our future. I would move to his hometown and find a job. We would get married during our one year anniversary. We would talk for hours about anything and everything. It was like the universe was finally on my side. I was so excited about what's in store for us.
But then, he suddenly changed. It was killing me slowly seeing him losing interest. I don't know if I was just paranoid or what. But one thing's for sure, what I did pushed him further away.
