They say destiny is something that is suppose to happen on its own,
some people say you shape your own destiny, but what do we believe?
I once knew a girl who thought she knew her destiny. She thought she had it made, she thought her no one can take it away from her.That all changed when she met him. Her name was Sarah Bayer, she grew up in a family that loves her unconditionally. She has supportive father, caring mother, two most intelligent brothers. Sarah is the oldest of the three, when she was younger she lived in a small town in Ontario called Englehart with a population of 2,000. Sarah loved that small town, everyone knew her and she knew everyone. When she was younger she went to school with a little boy named Matthew Jacobs he was what we can all say her first love. She disliked him at first but as they grew older the dislike became more than a dislike. Matthew and Sarah started dating each other, which was not a bad thing but what she did not know was her father disapprove of this relationship, so Sarah and Matthew hid their relationship from her family. As months go by her father was doing well in the company he was working for.
One day her father came home with good news, he was promoted in the company he was working for for 4 years. They were all thrilled, but little did they know that this promotion was going to change their lives forever. As her father discussed this promotion to the family, the two little brothers were thrilled to hear the news, which was they were moving to a bigger city Toronto. Sarah was upset because that would mean it would make it a lot harder for her to see and meet Matthew. Sarah tried her best to convince her father to stay in the little town but he father did not allow it, her father did not want his family to live there, her father had bigger dreams to pursue for his family, but all Sarah wanted was to stay. After a few weeks of trying to convince her father the 13 year old finally gave up. Her whole family packed up and moved from Englehart to the City of Toronto. Sarah and her family settled in pretty quickly, she made great friends, and went to a really disciplined school. As she entered high school for most girls its a big deal because they that means they are entering adulthood. She struggled to make friends because the high school that she decide to enter was an all girls school, she was separated from the friends she knew when she was at her old school. As the days went on she made a few close friends that she can share her secrets with, that she can laugh and watch movies with. As time went on Sarah met a few boys but none of them could compare to Matthew and how she felt for him. She knew that the move from the small town to the big city was going to be a drastic change in their relationship. When she visited her old town there were rumors spreading around the town that Matthew had met a great girl and had gotten her pregnant, when Sarah found out she was appalled by the news, she cried day in and day out because of it. As she walked through the little town there were two old ladies talking she over heard what they were talking about, it was about her father and Matthew’s mothers relationship when they were around Matthew and Sarah’s age. When she found out she was even more heart broken because what she did not know was that her father and Matthew’s mother were each other’s first love that was the reason why her father did not want her to fall for Matthew, her father knew that he was going to break her heart. As time goes by Sarah learned that things in life is worth living so as she finishes high school to enter the world of high collegiate she decided to one more time go back to her roots and just enjoy being back to her old life just as a vacation from the city. As she strolls in the enchanted garden so they call it because of the serenity it presents itself to people she found herself in a small bench where her and Matthew used to share laughter and tears she found that she may never share those moments with him ever again because he was happy with his new family, but when she turned around to go back home she sees him Matthew staring at her with a smile, she smiled back and congratulated him, but he cried to her and told her he was not happy, and he still was very much in love with her, he told her that this woman was a mistake and that he does not know what to do. Sarah compassionately went and hugged him so tight that they could not let each other go, she knew the feeling was right but the timing was wrong, she tried to avoid it but couldn’t all she can think of was that moment and how perfect it was, all she can grasp was the thought of being with him was right, she knew there and then that he was her destiny, but that moment was never to be repeated again. When she got home that same day her closest friend Stephanie Wong stayed over the house that same night Sarah had mentioned to Stephanie what happened between Matthew and her, Stephanie was furious because she knew that Matthew lied to Sarah, Matthew lied to her about everything, because when Sarah was away Stephanie was Sarah’s eyes and ears through everything Stephanie knew that Matthew was unfaithful throughout his relationship with Sarah, and with the mother of his child. Stephanie knows that Matthew does not work and he expects his parents to pay everything. When Sarah found out this was all just a lie she decided that her destiny was no longer the person she thought he was. She swore there and then that she will not fall in love again. She did not want to feel the disappointment, the deception, the hurt from anyone ever. So she closed her eyes and swallowed her pride and she moved back into the city where she can make and shape her future.
She went back to school and studied Tourism in hopes for working as a flight attendant. Striving to be a flight attendant she got a position as a staff in a small boutique hotel where she met a lot of great people. Through out her time she did take the time to meet and greet men but no one has struck her fancy, but as she was out shopping with her good friend from college named Sophie they bump into a gentleman by the name Joshua Salvatore. He had a very distinctive Asian decent look in him. Sophie thought it would be fun to try to set them both up but Sarah didn’t buy Joshua’s presence. So Sophie had to try another approach to her magnificent plan into cracking Sarah’s fear in commitment. One day Sarah came home with a brand new phone Sophie had volunteered to take a stab at her phone then she started feeding Sarah some ideas about how couples meet online and some last, because Sophie had experiences with these types of things she decides to add an application on Sarah’s phone and it was a dating application which had Sarah’s photo on it. Many men adored her and many of them made conversations with her, But there was one particular man that Sophie had her eyes on for Sarah. Sophie said hello to this gentlemen, but he did not respond back, so Sophie waited a few more days but not return message. A few days later the gentlemen by the name of Matthew Conrad messaged back, but Sophie was not around and Sarah did not know what to say of whether she should even message him back. So Sarah took a deep breathe and said hello they both had a great conversation going and they both had a lot in common. They both shared many different jokes, spoke about life, love, and everything that can be talked about. She spent everyday on the phone with this fellow, late night chats, late night text, and late night laughter. Sarah could not stop smiling, she could not stop talking about him, she could not sleep without getting a simple text or call from him. Then one day they were both set to see each other, Sarah’s excitement was undeniably unreal her friends have never seen her so delightfully happy, then they met her eyes met his she did not have words to describe what she felt. She was walking on clouds, she felt no one can bring her down, all she could think of where those beautiful greenish hazel eyes, that beautiful smile and how his perfect teeth just looked dashing, his adorably looking face staring back at her dark eyes, dark hair. At that moment she could not believe that there it was her heart opening after 4 years of hardship from a man who lied his way in and out, from a man who did not know how or what to tell her and explain to her why he did what he did, there she saw her heart fall into his hands, his gentle and smooth hands. After that day she could not stop smiling, singing, dancing, and most of all she could not believe she could feel that way for anyone. Sarah had fallen in love, Fallen in love with a man with the same name as the one that broke her heart the first time, but better he was a lot better, he does not lie, and they both trust each other. As her story goes on Matthew Conrad and Sarah Bayer will continue to keep loving each other, to write more of her destiny, She knows now that destiny does not shape itself but you have to shape it for yourself. She will one day get the love she deserves, and share it with the man that deserves it, but she will not give up on what was meant for her and for what she believes in. She will continue to keep loving Matthew Conrad because that’s who she was meant for. Matthew Conrad is her Always and Forever. She had told him that she will not stop loving him until her heart stops beating, and even then she will continue on loving him because she believes in happily ever after.
Well that is the end of this story, but rest assure Sarah Bayer and Matthew Conrad will some day be together she is only 25 years old, there will be many challenges ahead for them, there will be more hearts that will be broken but in the end true love will always prevail, because perseverance, trust, communication, faith and most of all belief in each other is the key. Love is not love if you don’t open your heart to someone who is trying. Don’t close the door to a great opportunity, but if that opportunity comes hold on to it tightly because in today’s time you never know who to trust or who to not trust. It is hard to be with someone who lies and gets away with it, worst part is its even harder to be in love with that person, because you will need to learn to let it go, Sad I know but its better you or you go on living with it. Don’t fall for a liar, Fall for the right person with the right reasons…
