An Eternal Love Story
It was spring of 2000 and John was visiting his family. He met Samantha alias Sam at the Starbucks and exchanged greetings over a meeting arranged by common friends. Only within a few hours of meeting and conversing, John could picture the rest of his life with Sam. Lacking the guts to express his true feelings, John exchanged his email id with Sam and thereafter, they went their own ways. They lived in two different parts of the world. They started chatting not realizing where they were headed to. A headstrong yet compassionate John, awakened by the intensity of his feelings for Sam, expressed them to her. Sam liked him, too, but wasn’t sure if it was love. Complementing her carelessness, the traditions of society separated them and Sam got hitched. John, on the other hand, decided to move on in his life, with his dreams clearly shattered.
They lived in two different parts of the world. They started chatting not realizing where they were headed to.
As destiny would have it, Sam, not long after her wedding, started thinking about him. Trying very hard to play her role as a loyal wife, Sam would always distract her mind and named her feelings as meaningless. They would now chat barely once in 6 months. But with their feelings intact, they pretended to be just friends. This friendship would later change into being each other’s intimate confidants. All this while, Sam kept praying for him to leave her thoughts. Alas! It didn’t happen. John understood they can no longer be together, but like John was stuck in Sam’s most intimate of thoughts, even Sam refused to go away from his heart and mind. His life had come to a standstill. One fine day, John left without a word and blocked all their means of communication. Within minutes, Sam’s small world had fallen apart. It was finally time for Sam to face her demons. All these years she had found solace in talking to him. She would talk her heart only to John while never failing to perform her marital duties on the side. With his love etched in her heart forever, she decided to focus on her career and prove her mettle.

He came back to apologize for leaving unannounced thinking that this may set him free. While this could prove to be the unlikeliest of conditions, the power of love made them fall for each other.

This one time, however, they happened to be in the same city, both traveling for their work. Knowing very well how their intense feelings for each other could play out in this society, they decided not to meet and bid farewell. In order to be dutiful and morally correct, they shut the doors on each other; which would take another 10 years to open again.
Destiny of their Love Story
Little did they know that there was a lot more to their destiny? Sam was at an award function in London 3 years hence in the year 2013.

There were beautiful memories to cherish forever and she was content living on them.
A little while after stepping into the hall, she saw a glimpse of a man and her heart trembled. She was shivering and bent forward to confirm the man was no one else but John. John was now the CEO of the world’s leading IT Company. She got up to leave the hall, but a voice from inside stopped her. Something told her that their time had finally come and she couldn’t run away from it again. As the announcer said the words, “Samantha George”, John’s heart skipped a beat. John finally mustered the courage to look back and there they were- finally seeing each other after 13 years.
