The Girl Who Waited: The Second Man

She got jealous of another girl you’re getting your eyes on.. She cried in the shower… while listening to her new downloaded song by Carole King!! It was a sad song entitled “Will you still love me tomorrow?” Every lyric brought her into tears as they were meant to hit every sad emotion she had felt that day. It was a sad and gloomy bath. “Why didn’t you pay attention to me?”, the girl whimpered. Life must go on.. she said. Strongly convincing herself to move on, find someone that will appreciate you.

Right there and then, he wanted to be with her. She already fell with this second man. Argh! No escape.

Lo and behold.. She learned he has a partner. You don’t want to see this girl getting jealous, believe me. She cried. He explained she “was” his partner. “Oh Gawd! I don’t want to be a mistress”, her mind shouted. She found out, in his culture, people don’t usually get married if they don’t want to, and stay as partners for as long as they wish. Which is good. It’ll give people more options and freedom. Marriage is just for legal purposes. That being said, marriage can’t be used in judging relationships. Be married or not, what matters most is what they have is real, the love is real.
