Anyone who had experienced love, would know that it hurts, sometimes more than it makes you happy.
-Lulu we are going to be late. You need to hurry! – I cried in the end of the stairs. Lulu and her hair. Uh!
-Coming in a minute, babe. Be patinet. I need to be pretty.
-But you always are.- I mumbled, and took the car keys. -Will wait for you in the car! – I said louder.
I was 19 and I had a couple of months to graduate, Lulu was in the other class. She had this awesome red curly hair, which always smelled like something between bananas and stawberries, and was so soft.
-See I was that fast today, Jake. – she smiled with the most beautiful smile ever.
-Sure, my ass. – I was playing mad but she gave me a sandwich and said:
– I even made breakfast.
Couldnt help it. Just kissed her.
The day at shcool passed boring, then we came home. We were supposed to cook fried chicken with salad. I made the salad and Lulu did the rest.
-Uh, you souldn’t slice it like that. It has to be wider. Uh, when we get married I will do that, for god’s sake.
I didn’t know what to say. So I stayed quiet.
When we started having dinner, something with her was wrong, but I waited for her to spit it out. Finally she did.
-So, babe, what was that girl from today? The one you were looking at so much? And talking to her like she was more than a God?
-Don’t play stupid!- she yelled and throw her glass of wine to the wall – Tell me who she is and were you doing with her, or I swear I will rip her heart out!
-Lulu, calm down. There was no one. I don’t even remember talking to someone, what about looking at someone. – I didn’t know what she was talking about, I swear.
-I told you not to play stupid! – she started throwing things
-Babe, please calm down! Let’s talk. Give me a chance..
-DON’T YOU EVER CALL ME LIKE THAT!
-Lulu..-I stood up and went to her. Tried to hug her but I got a slap.
-Leave me alone!- tears were falling of her eyes, like falling stars.
I tried to stop her but she ran away with the keys for the car. Something was telling me that it won’t end well, that I need to hurry, or it would be too late. Well, it already was.
I got the BMV, drove as fast as I could, I saw Lulu’s car, stopped at the left side of the bridge. She was sitting on the fance with a gun in her hands. I was terrified.
-Babe, put it down. Let’s fix this. Please. I beg you. You still love me, right? Put it down, Lulu.
-We always fix things, and in the end nothing is fixed. Once broken you cannot mend it. It stays broken. Why did you do this to me, Jake? Why? I loved you. I wanted to marry you, and you didn’t say anything. Why did you choose her instead of me? – She was crying like a little child. She just wasn’t herself.
-I did not do anything. I love only you. My eyes see only you. Please put the gun down. Please, Lulu, I love you. – a tear fell. As fast as the bullet stroke her.-NO!
I ran and cought her lifeless body.
-No…. No.. It.. It can’t be real. Why.. Lulu.. please.. Marry me.. Please.. Say yes..
I couldn’t stop the tears, nor the screams.
-Screams and tears won’t bring her back, boy. – The shadow on the other end of the bridge, laughed.
