I am her prince. She is my princess. 
Our own fairy tale was a different story.
She and I had been loving together for past eleven years,
but our parents didn't accept it.  
Her parents engaged her to some other. 
Knowing that she tried to commit suicide only I knew that.
Then she changed her mine and wanted me to be happy with or without her.  
She wanted me to marry someone other and remain happy. 
On the other hand she is sad. 
How can I pacify her, when I couldn't pacify myself. 
With a hard heart I wrote her a letter...

Don’t be sad that we had to live
separately though our memories
and dreams live together. Not
only love, certain other things
were also important and
indispensable to lead a better life.
I was angry when you thought to
explain this to me.  As you said we
have responsibilities in our lives.
We were born not only to play
the role of a lover but also the
roles of a child, spouse, parent,
Do you remember, we used to
talk daily continuously for hours
in the phone. And we felt so hard
to spend a single day without
talking to each other. Perhaps,
during the nights before our
exams we never spoke to each
other because we knew that the
day lying ahead was more
important and much responsible.
We understood it clearly and
never tried to talk in our phones
until we completed our exams
The same principle goes with our
lives too. You have to marry some
other and so was I because we
had to play the roles of a child
well. As decided before neither I
nor you was interested to hurt
our parents’ feelings though they
never tried to understand ours.
We were now in a critical stage to
take a witty decision, which would
not ruin our lives.
I say my girl, the years lying
ahead was much important to us
than those we spent together.
So you and I have to be more
responsible. You had to play well
the role of a good daughter,
affectionate spouse and a
wonderful mother. Let us stay
apart until we finish our
responsibilities well. Until our
relations were satisfied
with our lives spent together with
May be after thirty or forty years, when we have lived almost
of our lives with our spouse,
caring for them and with our kids,
nurturing them as men …we
would be finally free from all our
responsibilities. Yes, I hope on our
later part of our lives, when our
kids and grand children grown up
as men, they would advice us rather
than obeying us.  No one other
than our partners might really care
about us. When nothing counts
and nothing matters, the one I
married and I would be waiting
for you and your partner to spend
our left out times in a bench on a
shore or by going for a walk in a
road or in some other peaceful
place. I hope, we would be
having a heavy bundle of stories
and an unbearable bunch of
memories to be shared. You and I
if get that lucky chance we shall
share about this day, the before
days and days lying aftermath our
marriage. So don’t worry go
happily for the day of your
marriage, live a happy life and
leave a shine of it on everyplace
you go. Keep in mind that you
had played the role of a lover in
an excellent way and I hope you
would play others role also well. I
order you that you should be
only saying beautiful stories
compiled with fun and happiness
on the day we would meet after
all our hairs have gone grey and
our mouth had lost its teeth. So
you have to live a beautiful life at
least for that.  We shall wait for that day.
I hope that that day waits for us too.  
True love can be felt even when the lovers 
don't get a chance to live together and live apart.
Ours is a similar story.  May be it is the test for our love. 
Our love has the ability to do anything, 
to experience anything that comes on a way 
and still remain the same as the way as it is...  
Our love has the ability to let each other go, 
to see each other living separately and remain the same. 
In the forthcoming years we may change, 
even our love may but not our memories.  
And as long as the remain the same 
you and me will belong to each other as we did once. 

  You always say that I was the one
who understands you better. And
as you believe, I could
understand that how much you
were hurt now, for being forced
to live with another other than
me. The same goes with me too,
and I could accept all these.  I
trust you would also. It was all
OKAY my girl that you are
marrying someone other than
Wish you a happy Married life!!! 

Then something unexpected happened, what's it?..
