What is the right age to fall in love ? or how many times you can fall in love ?Are there any laws applicable to fall in love ?? Ridhi was 16….no 15….hmmm 12… I guess 10 ..NNNaaa…8 years old when she fell in love (for the first time :P ). Her first love was that cute little boy in his class sitting next to the window, who seemed to be eternally silent .

She always wished if someday her God fairy would come and grant her wish of sitting besides him and one fine day the magic happened . The class teacher (and not God fairy) granted her wish. How could she ever forget those endless chit chatting in between classes, sharing the lunch box , fights which never lasted more than an hour. She was so excited ….oh! she had a boyfriend now…:D but all good things came to an end. Her father was transferred to another city and she had to end her love story (or so she thought). She was heart broken but she always believed that one day he will find her (but she didn’t leave a shoe behind so he couldn’t ;) )

She was 12 and not interested in boyfriends anymore but one fine day she noticed that the tall guy from the next section was looking at her. She tried to ignore him, but alas! By then she had been hit by cupid’s arrow already. Shit! She was smiling to herself again but she knew last time she was just a kid and this time she is a “grown up kid”. But, within a year she realised she has responsibilities on her head like homework, tutions etc etc….so she sacrificed her love to the education system . But she was haunted by the memories of those sweet talks, sharing of notes, passing chits etc etc….and again she decided she will “never – ever” fall in love :( .

But Alas ! one fine day she reached that age of mandatory romance according to the parameters of Bollywood. How could she breach the laws of the holy Bollywood. She was sweet “16″ (remember all those sola baras ki bali umar kinda songs :D ). So she had to fall in love again. But this time it was serious and it was “true love” that athletic , wannabee, girl’s most wanted, school captain stole her heart. They shared those beautiful moments in love for 2 years. She was happy but they had to part their ways one day. School days were over and they went to different colleges. Slowly she realised those feelings have faded but those memories remained. She just fell out of love but she was happy that she had fallen in loved. It was a wonderful feeling.

It was her first year at college. It was the month of December when she was enjoying her tea and suddenly she noticed “him”.He was just so lost in his world; not interested in anyone. She just wanted to look at him and she was sure he will never look back. For next few days she made sure she was always in canteen at that time of the day but never expected he will even notice. But one fine day a friend told her that “he” wants to meet her. She was scared. They met for the first time and she felt as if her heart has just skipped a beat. It was beautiful. They were so happy together. They had so much to share with each other even when they were silent. With each passing day, she realised with him that she can just fall in love every day.

It was raining heavily and they were on the middle of the road and he kissed her for the 1st time. She was speechless; She felt as if Time had stopped at that moment. She knew she wanted to be with him forever.

Years passed by but she still loved him the way she did the first day. (so she thought). she was insanely in love with him and she simply loved it. It was beautiful feeling.

But she could smell that things were changing. She couldn’t see that spark in his eyes but she ignored those thoughts. It was too bitter to accept.

But she couldn’t hold on to things for long. This relation was slipping away from her hand like sand but she just didn’t want to let go..

They switched to different cities and she realised slowly she wasn’t there in his life any more. So she broke completely.

For some days all those sad songs made sense. There was somethng she was holding on to; but one day she decided she will let go. She was hurt but slowly realised its just human to fall out of love and he did that only.

That day she decided she will never give up on love. It’s a wonderful feeling and no one should miss it.. :-) .

One day she will just fall in love again.

In our life, we can have many love stories. It’s not wrong. It’s a part of human nature. Just don’t restrict yourself; fall in love and enjoy it. Do not draw boundaries to your feelings. Love truely and deeply. You may get hurt or may fall out of it but that is the only way you would have lived life.

Love is a beautiful feeling .Don’t miss it. Find it :-)

    Hello Surabhi,
    I liked your story!
    - Opening was good
    - Liked the end with a honest words of wisdom
    - Character seems real
    - Your tale telling flows well!

    If you want to make it a fictionalized short story (over 5,000 words), I recommend considering the following:

    - include more of significant (or not), events surrounding protagonist’s life
    - More dialogues
    - Show more of what characters do instead of telling the readers what they are doing

    I am as novice as a writer of one short story and above suggestions, I have learned from writers, may not be relevant to your style and story. I thought of sharing what I learned in past couple of months.

    As I like your humor and style, I would like your take on my story “Take My Coat” as I am hungry for feedbacks and want learn from them.

    Regards,
    UThaker
