It was the month of June, and our college was gearing up for our annual fest. One day, I got a message from a guy called Aaron, “Hello, you are into photography, right? We are looking for a photographer for our fest… would you be interested?” And thus our story began…
We started talking over the phone to coordinate for the organizers’ meeting for the fest. I did some background checks about the guy and found out that he was the most popular fresher of our college: the cool guy most girls were crazy about. I too found him charming during our phone conversations.
After getting to know almost everything about each other through chats and phone conversations, we finally met after a couple of days in that meeting and I felt this instant attraction towards him. In the course of preparing for our college fest, we grew closer to each other.

My parents had gone out of town to visit some relatives and I was not sure if I would be able to spend the night alone. So, I texted Aaron, “Hey, my parents are out of town and I am a little scared to be all by myself at home, would you please come over tonight?” I was genuinely scared of being home alone. To my relief, he said that he would drop by around 10 pm.
I had downloaded some movies so that we could have a movie night. We decided to watch Rango, but the movie wasn’t that interesting and I was feeling tired, so I suggested we call it a night.
I was about to fall asleep when he whispered, “Can I hug you?” I was a little startled, I started wondering if he got the wrong message when I asked him to come to my house at night. I had told him very clearly that I was afraid to be alone… I had no idea what to do. I had thought he was not interested in me.
I let him hug me. After all I did have feelings for him. However, things didn’t end at just a hug. We started kissing, and then we went a step ahead and made love. It was the first time for both of us and it was magical. The fact that it all happened in a flow without us planning it made it all the more wonderful.
In the morning, when I woke up, he had already left. We had a nice conversation later in the day. He came over the second night as well and we had another amazing night… we made love and danced till 3 am.

I was totally in love with him and I wrote him a long letter confessing my feelings for him. But he was not ready for a relationship. The fact that I could not be with the person I loved so much left me shattered. However, we remained friends and my love prevailed, because after a year our relationship began. He said that though circumstances were not in our favour, he couldn’t stay away from me and couldn’t ignore his feelings for me.
We are still together, and I don’t know what future holds for us, but I want to make the most of whatever time we have together.
