We had spent our nights talking, the secrets that were buried within our chests were no more secrets, I was her bosom friend and her first love, whenever we had a conversation, she would say how much she loves the way I am, how pure my soul was and how she craved for a soul to love her like I did, rest of the things were pretty materialistic for her. It was a cold winter night and she said we should meet the next day. I had never been as jubilant and excited before, I couldn't sleep that night, the time of my first date was near, I bathed, went upto my closet, wore every outfit just to see what makes me look better, then I thought she is in love with my soul I don't need to be over cautious, she might feel I am showing off, I left home as if I was going to meet an old friend. It was snowing and the water filled in my shoes, they're grey in color and the water marks were pretty visible, I stood under a tree, had booked a table in a nearby restaurant, she took a while and finally I saw her walking towards me, my heart was beating at an abnormal pace, she looked at me, took off her eyes and said she was sorry for being late, it was okay as if she didn't know, I asked how she was, While answering my query she sealed the conversation by saying that she is getting late and she would leave, she left. I stood there for an hour or more, trying to figure out what actually went wrong, meanwhile a message flashed and it read "I didn't like the way you're and I can't stand by your side like that", but she loved my soul I told myself. The snow got heavier and my flesh was freezing out of cold, I went back home. In the evening I got a call and she said she was sorry and wants to see me again at the same place in half an hour, I got up wore the best clothes I had, the costliest perfume, I was about to leave but I couldn't cross the threshold, I loved her and I didn't want to let go off her but then I had to, I pulled out my phone and dropped a text "I am sorry, I won't be coming, I have sent my body for some modifications and you don't like the rest of me, god bless". The tree is still there and so are the memories.
