"Tomorrow is a holiday, would you accompany me to Washington?"' The
Chinese man proposed to her, offering a red flower. The handing over of a red flower has deep meaning in America. When someone is eager to keep a relationship close, or perhaps wishes to have a bed partner, it is sometimes done. I have heard this from many people. It may not be wrong.
There is no use of matured, platonic friendship to keep a relationship going. One can partake in physical relations even if he or she was acquainted only yesterday. The matter depends on like and dislike only.
She decided to reject the proposal directly. She replied in a civil manner, "Thank you! But, I am so busy that even I have no time to think for myself. Perhaps, I am unable to maintain our friendship for awhile. We both are so busy. We don't have leisure time to spend. It is better to keep our lives separate." He became quite sad and went off without notice. Suddenly, she felt uneasy and felt the need to find refuge in her apartment.
She opened the windows of her room and looked out. She could see the park, the beautiful landscape far off, a military parade, the tall trees and the blooming flowers. They provided her some sense of peace.
"Let's have a friendship then," he proposed. This proposal made her heart and body swing. She dare not stand in front of a mirror.
"Send me your photo?" He spoke in a filthy way, though the temperature was low, the heart beat was high. She went inside the room. Everything was happening so fast as if it was dream. She began yet another email response.
"The sky and hearts should be unified. We are to live for our future and the plans that we imagine. I love you, but I can't send express enough love into a phone, and due to the presence of other people. Our relationship began and developed through email and phone. Our love may or may not unite, but what is certain, is that it will long live like a story or poem."
His e-mail makes her mad every time. Sometimes she weep and forget herself.
"In case we fail to meet, we must continue our love for each other.
Heart to heart love is far more important than physical love. The body decays -- but love is durable. If we accept this principle, we will be one step forward in the field of love and we can dedicate ourselves for the immortality of love." She began to type these words on the keyboard. The tears were falling from delicate cheeks while typing words flowing from the heart.
