    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    The reasons I choose you ~ by anonymous

    "For years, I had a crush on Samuel. Since I was still in high school, I remembered seeing him during one of the best moments of my sister's wedding. I saw him wearing a white T-shirt and just a simple outfit, yet a very entertaining person. I don't know what the reason is, but surely I know that I had a crush on that person."

    My name is Dell, and I like to do what other girls do; I have a secret. I was a secret admire to Samuel for a long time. We were best friends since we're kids. Have you ever felt your heartbeat beating as the person you like gets near to you? I have. Often. Fortunately, at that time, no one knew what my secret is.

    The secret, it just between my close best friend and me.

    But, just a few weeks later, my secret was exposed by my best friend. I don't know how the stories spreading so fast. But it was embarrassing. Luckily, they don't know who that person I was in a crush in.

    My best friend, Olla that spread my secret, told me that I should confess to that person. But, I was so scared he will reject me, and I am not ready for that. But, I gather myself and gain the courage to somehow confess to him. I was planning to tell him face-to-face during recess at school. But it is so embarrassing. When I was about to tell him, his friends came and surprise him, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"

    Oh, I didn't know that it is his birthday. This is so embarrassing.

    Fast forward. After several months.

    On Christmas, 25th December 2010, I came up with a plan to give him a present. I texted him, Let's meet after this. There's it. I finally dared to tell him. I gave him a small notebook. I was nervous to see him read it. He read it out loud; I was covering my face because it was so embarrassing. But, soon, the sound of him getting slow and then muted. Then, he sat and smiled.

    He then continues to read,

    "It's Christmas, and soon we will enter a new year. Thank you for being my friends all this year and the year before this. But, before that, I wanted to tell you about something. In the last session of our school, I wanted to tell you about something, but it does not go well. I didn't know that was your birthday. I just wanted to tell you that I like you more than a best friend. It's been a while I had a crush on you. There, I said it."

    Then, he closed the notebook. And he said the last word out loud, "Let's start date!" I burst into a laugh. 

    Then, he stands up and smiles while looking at me. 

    "Thank you, Dell. Merry Christmas. I had a confession too." 

    "What?" I said.

    "I like you too, silly." He said. Then both of us burst into a laugh.

    We started to date.

    Years pass by years, and we had our conflicts, ups and downs, disagreement, and all of the sort things couples do. But, all of that, we manage to stay together until now.

    After so long, people asked me, what is the reason I choose Samuel?

    Then I respond with;

    "I can give so many reasons why I choose him, though he always makes fun of me, and we fight sometimes. He's clumsy and no sense of fashion. But, Duh, he is still my favourites, I don't know what the reason is, but I think I learn to see the perfect thing in that imperfect person."

    Happy Valentine's day.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago |

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
