It's been long time since I experienced unexplained things again since my boy friend died (for those who read my first two stories "my lover and one last smile" you will know how these unexplained things begin). For almost 5 years now I didn't expect this thing anymore I thought he was already in rest and peace. I could move on and continue my life but what I was thinking is wrong...
Well I begin this story by introducing Noel my boy friend for almost six years until the tragic incident happened (see 'my lover' to know the incident). The day he died was the worst day I ever experience. At first I thought I could never recover. I found it very hard to accept the reality that Noel was gone for ever. I carried that heavy load for almost two years until I meet Chester who helped me accept that Noel was gone and I had to face a life without him.
Chester become a good friend of mine and after sometime of being close the feeling grew inside of me without knowing I was deeply in love with him and he felt the same way too. After 6 months of dating we become lovers and June 30th of this year we have decided to get married.
A month before, I was in my room reading an old book when my cell phone rang. The phone did not register any number but ringing, so I answered the phone and I said hello. There was no answer just deep breathing... I noticed that the person on the other end seemed to be crying so I said hello again but no answer. Thinking that it was only a joke I decided to drop the call but then I heard a male voice talk and what he said made all my hair stand. I don't know why but I just had this feeling that it was not normal.
The man said in a deep scary voice "forget me already Mahal?" Mahal is the pet name Noels gave to me and he was the only person who called me that. After that my head seemed so heavy with many question playing in my mind. Was it him or some else and if it was him what does he want to tell me? He doesn't want me to get married or it was just a wrong call not meant for me?
Ok that was not the climax of the story June 12 2009 Friday at 2:30 in the afternoon. I heard a knock on my door and when I looked outside it was a delivery man with two dozen long stick dark red roses and a small box addressed to me. I signed the paper and accepted the package there was no name to indicate where these roses had come from. I though they were from Chester because he was the only person who would do such thing for me. I put the flowers on the table and opened the box, after I removed the gift wrapper I saw a card stick on the box it said "I was planning it for so long I guess this is the right time to ask you". Still no clue what all of this was about I opened the box and inside the box there was a small red velvet envelope with words written in gold "Will you marry me Mahal," And bellow those words said "from ENG".
I dropped the envelope and cried like a baby. I felt I was going to loss my mind. "Eng" was my pet name for Noel.
How could my dead boyfriend who has been dead for 5 years send me something and ask me to marry now?
I returned to my normal self after an hour with many questions in my mind. I looked at the calendar it was June 12, our 10th year anniversary if he was still alive. He planed it all along; prepared all those things while he was alive. I picked up the red envelope of the floor and looked inside and found a white gold ring with red ruby and white little stone around it.
I postponed my weeding but didn't tell Chester or anyone else what happened I kept it a secret.
I just told everyone I was not ready and I needed more time to think.
Chester is a good man and he understands. Now I was writing here sharing my experience. I know this is not a scary ghost story but its really nice evidence that true love really remains even after death comes.
I still wonder until now how those flowers and ring were sent to me if the person who sent them was already dead for long time.
Well I guess nothing is impossible today. Thank you for reading...
