There are some things in life that change you completely. Events that leave you irreversibly altered, for good or for bad. They might not even seem that big at the time, but looking back they seem enormous. A friend of mine once compared it to metamorphosis. Going through a period in your life, and coming out as something new.
This is the story of my metamorphosis. It came in the form of a small peppy girl, something I had never expected. At first, I resented it. After all, who wants their entire life to be changed without so much as a warning? But now I can only be grateful, because if it weren't for her, I wouldn't be the man I am today.
This is her story too. The story of dealing with a change, even when it's bad. Accepting that you can't go back, but remembering the past anyway. A story of learning not to give up on everything just because you lost something you loved, and finding something good again, even if it's in the place you least expect it.
This is a story of healing, of dealing with the repercussions of change. A story of friendship, and helping each other get through the change. A story of the lessons she taught me, and the lessons I taught her.
She taught me to stop looking back and accept the change so that I could move on and become someone new. I taught her not to let the change control her life. She taught me to live in the moment; I taught her to believe in the future.
And maybe I didn't want it, but she turned out to be everything I needed. And maybe she tried to resist it, but it turned out to be everything she wanted. This is a story of ups and downs, with as many bumps in the road as there were sunsets. But it isn't just about ignoring the bumps. It's about feeling everything, accepting what we can't change and changing what we can.
This is our story, a story of friendship, healing, and change. And though it might not have a happy ending; I wouldn't go back for the world. Because for every broken heart and dark moment, I have her love. And that's all I need.
This is the first chapter, please R&R, both good and bad reviews are welcome. I'm not sure how often I'll be updating, but it should be a week at most. Thanks!
