This is where I post my original works - stories, poems, proses, essays, etcetera. I own everything that's written here. If you want to post my works somewhere, please give credit to me.
Original stories are stories whose characters came from my mind. I own the character for those posts that have this tag.
Fan fic are my stories which stars my favorite Asian stars/anime characters/drama characters. I only own the stories, but not the characters (I do wish I own Calvin Chen and the rest of Fahrenheit... lol)
Roses are my short proses/stories. it may be written in first person's view or thrid person's view. It's just a narrative prose.
One-shots are my series of stories that are one chapter long. These are also tag as roses.
Actually, I was planning to make 25 short stories before my 25th birthday (which have already passed) and unfortunately, I wasn't too successful in making 25 short stories. I was panning to call it 25 roses, hence the tag roses here in my blog.
Anyways, if you want to read just one story, click on the title below and then start reading from below.
I'm trying to figure out how I could highlight the entries here and copy, but I am not that knowledgaeble with HTML. So, while I'm trying to figure things out, if anyone wanted a soft copy of the stories here for reading purposes only, you can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
She loved him since the first spring she met him, But the only thing she could do is watch him marry the girl he loves...
The flowers started to bloom today. It was the first day of spring, and spring has always been Calvin's favorite season. I have known him long enough to know every details about him.
He said a lot of good things happen to him every spring. It was that season when my family moved to the house next to his. Since then, we became the best of friends. It was also spring when he met Genie, the girl who, acording to him, he wants to spend the rest of his life with. I knew that they would come to that, but I never thought it would be this soon.
"I'm getting maried." He said one lazy afternoon, while we were having coffee at my place. Upon hearing that, I almost spit out the coffee that's in my mouth. "What?! That soon?" I asked. Calvin smiled and nodded his head. I was surprised at that news since Calvin and Genie have only been dating for 6 months. I gave him suspicious looks, as I got closer to his face. "Calvin Chen Yi Ru, did you got Genie pregnant?" "Of course not!" "Then why do you guys have to get married this soon?"
Calvin looked at me and smiled. "You've never been in love before, Christine?" he asked. I didn't answer him. I just lowered my head and looked at my coffee cup. Of course, I have been in love, I want to say. I want to tell him I've been in love with him since we were kids... since the first spring I met him... but I just don't have the guts to tell him that.
"You know that quote from 'When Harry met Sally'? Harry said, when you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. I love Genie, and I can't wait to be with her forever..." I nodded my head, and with that, I gave Calvin my blessings.
The day has finally arrived. Although it hurts to see the man I love getting married to another, I have to put on a smile to show everyone that I support him. There have been nights that I cried because of him, but I realized that when you love someone, you should let them find their happiness. Calvin's happiness is Genie, and I have to be happy for him this day.
He looked very dahing in his tuxedo. It was then that I realized that he has became a man - not that little boy I used to know.I walked down the aisle and I smiled at me. He smiled back, but at the end of the aisle, I have to step aside to give way to the bride.
Everything was perfect on Calvin's wedding day. The ceremony went smoothly until...
"Calvin Chen, do you take Genie Zhou as your lwfully wedded wife, and be with her for better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, till death do you part?" the priest asked. I was thinking he would answer immediately, but there was a dead silence from him. After a while, he looked at Genie and spoke. "I... I'm sorry..." he said. "I... I can't do this Genie," then he turned his back and walked away, leaving his devastated bride behind.
I followed him outside the church, and found him near the park not far away from the church. "Calvin..." I called. He looked up at me and smiled faintly. I walked towards him, and sat beside him. "I know I'm a jerk..." he started. "But you see, I just realized one thing... I have always been in love with Genie, I know, but last night, I tried to picture myself with her, and it felt so wrong. The moment you walked down the aisle, I closed my eyes and I see myself being with you... and you know what, it felt so right. But when I opened my eyes, reality hits me and I realized I'm marrying Genie..." I don't know if Calvin's joking or not, but at the back of my mind, I wish he's not. I know it's wrong for me to think that way, especially when Genie's so devastated about what happened. "Come on, Calvin." I said as I pulled his hand. "We can still go back. You're just nervous and jittery - " "No, I can't Christine..." "Calvin, Genie's waiting for you..."
He looked up t me. There's something in the way he looked that made me feel jittery. "Christine, I can't marry Genie because I realized that I still love you." He said. I was speechless. I never thought that Calvin feels the same way for me, but when did he start loving me? "I loved you since the day I first saw you, but I'm scared to admit that to you and to myself because I'm scared everything about us will change. But now, I'm not scared anymore because it's you I want to be with forever..."
My heart was beating faster upon hearing that. I have always dreamed that Calvin would tell me he loves me... who would've thought it would happen on his wedding day? I don't want to let this chance pass me by, so I decided to tell him what's in my heart. "Calvin... I love you too..."
The flowers bloomed, and once again, it's springtime. I am walking down the aisle in my long white gown. This time, I don't have to give way to another girl. I see Calvin by the altar. He is smiling and crying at the same time, as he patiently waited for me.I have never seen him more handsome than today. I have never seen him this way before.
Today is the start of our lives togehter. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him, and grow old beside him. When the priest asked him if he'll take me as his wife, we looked at me lovingly and smiled, then he said. "I do..."
