31 JanA Love Story


I don’t really bother to read love stories, but today I had some free time in hand so came across this lovely love story that will touch your heart

A girl in love asked her boyfriend..

Girl: Tell me… who do you love most in this world?

Boy: You, of course!

Girl: In your heart, what am I to you?

Boy: The boy thought for a moment and looked intensly in her eyes and
said, "You are my rib. In the Bible, it was said that God saw that
Adam was lonely, during his sleep; God took one of Adam’s rib and
created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only
when you find the woman of your life; you’ll no longer feel the
lingering ache in your heart."

After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while.
However, the youthful couple began to drift apart due to the busy
schedule of life and the never-ending worries of daily problems…
their life became mundane. All the challenges posed by the harsh
realities of life began to gnaw away their dreams and love for each

The couple began to have more quarrels and each quarrel became more

One day, after the quarrel, the girl ran out of the house…. At the
opposite side of the road, she shouted, "You don’t love me!" The boy
hated her hildishness and out of impulse, retorted, "Maybe, it was a
mistake for us to be together! You were never my missing rib!"

Suddenly, she turned quiet and stood there for a long while…. He
regretted what he said but words spoken are like thrown away water, you
can never take it back. With tears, she went home to pack her things
and was determined in breaking-up.

Before she left the house, "If I’m really not your missing rib, please
let me go…..

She continued, "It is less painful this way…let us go on our separate
ways and search for our own partners…"

Five years went by…. He never remarried but he had tried to find out
about her life indirectly…… She had left the country and back….
She had married a foreigner and divorced….. He felt anguished that
she never waited for him.

In the dark and lonely night, he lit his cigarette and felt the
lingering ache in his heart. He couldn’t bring himself to admit that
he was missing her.

One day, they finally met…. At the airport, a place where there were
many reunions and good-byes…. He was going away on a business trip.
She was standing there alone, with just the security door separating
them. She smiled at him gently.

Boy): How are you?

Girl): I’m fine. How about you… Have you found your missing rib?

Boy): No.

Girl): I’ll be flying to New York in the next flight.

Boy): I’ll be back in 2 weeks time. Give me a call when you are back…
You know my number… Nothing has changed.

With a smile, she turned around and waved good-bye.. "Good-bye." One
week later, he heard of her death. She had perished in New York. In
the event that shocked the world.. Midnight…..

Once again, he lit his cigarette….. And like before,he felt the
lingering ache in
his heart…. He finally knew, she was the missing rib that he had
carelessly broken.

Sometimes, people say things out of moments of fury….. Most often
than not, the outcome could be disastrous and detrimental…. We went
our frustrations 99% at our loved ones…. And even though we know
that we ought to "think twice and act wisely", it’s often easier said
than done.

Things happen each day, many of which are beyond our control. Let us
treasure every
moment and everyone in our lives. Tomorrow may never come; give and
accept what you have today………
