Tree, Leaf and Wind Part 2
and Wind Part
1 | Part 2 | Part
During Pre-University days, I like to collect
leaves. Why? Because I felt that it takes a
lot of courage for a leaf to leave the tree
she has been relying on for so long. During
the three years of Pre-University, I was on
very close terms with a guy. We were not in
a relationship but were best buddies. However,
when he had his first girlfriend, I learned
to develop a new feeling I should never have
learned - Jealousy. The sourness in the heart
can't be described by using a lemon. It felt
like a hundred rotten sour lemons. It was sourness
at the extreme limit. They were only together
for two months. When they broke up, I hid my
strong sense of happiness. It was short lived
as he got together with another girl within
a month’s time.

I like him and I know he likes me. However,
why won't he pursue me? Since he loves me, why
didn't he make the first move? Whenever he has
a new girlfriend, my heart will hurt. Time after
time, my heart was hurt. I started to suspect
that this is a one-sided love. If he doesn't
like me, why does he treat me so well? He’s
niceness is beyond what you will normally do
for a friend. Liking a person is very heart
wrenching. I know his likes and his habits but
I can never figure out his feelings towards
me. You can't expect me to confront him right?
Despite that, I still want to be by his side.
I wanted to care for him, accompany him and
love him. I hoped that one fine day, he will
love me. It's like waiting for his phone call
every night and waiting for him to sms me. I
know that no matter how busy he is, he will
make time for me. Hence, I waited for him. The
three years were the hardest to go through and
I really wanted to give up. Sometimes, I wonder
if I should continue waiting. The pain, the
hurt and dilemma accompanied me for three years.

At the end of my third year, a second year
junior started to pursue after me. He pursues
me relentlessly everyday. It came to a point
where my feelings towards him changed from outright
rejection to being willing to let him have a
small footing in my heart. He's like a warm
and gentle wind, trying to blow a Leaf away
from the Tree. In the end, I realized that I
didn't want to give this wind only a small footing
in my heart. I know this Wind will bring this
badly battered Leaf far away to a better land.
Finally, I left Tree but Tree only smiled and
didn't ask me to stay.
Leaf’s departure is because of Wind pursuit.
Or because Tree didn't ask her to stay.
