Susan sits alone in her bedroom. Holding a piece of paper. A simple yet heart-broken note.
I can't feel our love anymore. I found someone better. Good bye.
Her cheeks is wet with tears. Yes, she is very sad. Susan walks towards the nearest window. She could see thousands cars are speeding to their destination. Colourful road lights and also beautiful orange sky. But her heart feels so empty. Everything looks plain from her eyes. Tears run on her cheek again.
It has been four years and seven months. Susan loves Carl so much. He means everything to her. He supports her. He cares for her. He is always there for her. And now, no more Carl. He has found someone else. Yes, he betrays their love.
Susan picks up her Xperia Ray and starts dialing her good friend, Laila. Susan could hear Pink Floyd's voice before it is cut by Laila's voice.
"Laila, we've broken up," Susan's voice starts to break. Laila who is eating Cream and Cookies flavour ice cream stunned for a while.
"This is hard," Laila speaks by herself. "Susan, let's meet up. I will pick you up in 30mins." Laila hangs up and puts her ice cream aside.
In 30minutes time, both of them are already in Laila's car. They go to the nearest restaurant. Susan looks pale. She does not take any meal since morning. Laila orders food for herself and Susan too.
"Susan darling, listen. I know it is hard but you have to eat. Please,"
No words or actions from Susan.
"Susan, love comes with a package. It comes with happiness and sadness. I understand your feeling. I've been there before. You need to be strong. You will not die if he finds someone else to replace you, right? As women, we have our own pride. We have our own ego. We have our own right. You deserve a better person. God has someone else for you, love. Please don't torture yourself because of something you shouldn't. Love yourself first before you start loving someone else. If he doesn't want you anymore, so be it. I guess he is a great moron because he doesn't realize how precious you are. I am sure you will find a better person. This feeling can kill you bit by bit. Don't let it happen. You must fight, Susan. It is going to take a while to rebuild everything. But time heals. I trust you. Please trust yourself."
Susan looks at Laila. Her eyes are full with tears. She nods. "I understand, Laila. It breaks my heart so much. However, I will try to fight. Thank you so much." Slowly she grabs some bread and begins chewing.
"This is a good start." Laila said to herself. She smiles.
Love is special. It brings thousands feelings to us. Different people have different opinions about love. I have my own opinion. What about you?
