Davichi: The Journal Of A Lovestruck Individual (A Romance Story) by KachiUgo(m): 9:52pm On Jan 03
Happy New Year!!

How about I do a serial story? It's Romance. Yes, I actually wrote Romance. Not Fantasy, not Science Fiction, not Horror or a fast paced action thriller but Romance. My first (and maybe only) foray into this genre so let's see how it goes. Enjoy!

FROM THIS FRIDAY --

"DaVichi: The Journal of a Lovestruck Individual"

- It's a journal based story.
- New journal entries will be posted sporadically--busy schedule et all.
- It's going to be short (probably a maximum of 10 entries). So enjoy it while it lasts.
- It's going to be one heck of a ride so buckle up! And be prepared to be frazzled...oh no, sorry I meant razzle-dazzled!

Love a good love story? Follow.

Sneak peek:

...out of sight and out of mind, they say. But I find another law at work in my members, which is out of sight, very much present in mind. The way I feel for her is like a cancer. It has spread so far and so wide that I am damned to a fate worse than death. For I find that I would very readily choose death than a life without her. I would very readily meet my Maker than meet a man other than me who would stand at her side...

*****Journal Entry 1*****

I feel cheated because now I hold in the enclave of my heart a secret, a burden, which no man should ever possess. It began as an incredibly unremarkable meet. She was a pretty face, but not quite to me. Shocked as I was to see her in my office, I right there and then discounted any future advances towards her for two reasons. One, there was no inner spark on seeing her, which I had come to expect whenever I felt for a lady. Two, I didn't want to have to fight for her, seeing as she probably had a lot of suitors.

And so, my decision made and my face kept away from hers, I went about my business, never for once giving her even as much as a nod in greeting. Until the last few weeks before my termination from the establishment of our shared employ. Her face became more radiant to me. Her words became as honey in my heart. Her laughter soothed my soul like fresh water from a wellspring. She was to me an angel from above.

Her name rang with more verity in my mind, and the very essence of her had possessed my thoughts and would not let loose even to the necessary mundanities of life. She had possessed me; I was left aghast at how much I had changed in the space of a week. Now, I could not bear the thought of not hearing her voice in a day. I had become enslaved to another, I had become amongst men most miserable -- and gladly so, for I knew that what I felt for her was the most beautiful feeling a man could ever have. And oh, how lovely it would be if the feeling were requited.

But alas, it would seem that the feeling is not requited. Oh, fate... How terrible art thy sting? How fierce art thy rebuttal? It is said that hell hath no fury than a woman scorned, but I say hell hath no darkness than the heart of the one in whom love has been awakened only to be bereft and abandoned without succor. Terrible thing, unrequited love. Terrible thing.

To Be Continued.

KachiUgo, nice intro and beginning. I like the distinct realisation of affection, unlike the love @ first sight. I'll definitely be keeping an eye here.

*****Journal Entry 2*****

I think I am seriously flawed.

I can't stop thinking about her. I haven't seen or spoken to her in close to a month and still I feel as though I last saw her shimmering beautiness last night--that's how intently and intensely my heart jugs when I think her name.

It has never been like this for me. I have never held on to a person in this way before. Out of sight and out of mind, they say. But I find another law at work in my members, which is out of sight, very much present in mind. The way I feel for her is like a cancer. It has spread so far and so wide that I am damned to a fate worse than death. For I find that I would very readily choose death than a life without her. I would very readily meet my Maker than meet a man other than me who would stand at her side.

I think I am seriously flawed.

I am scared for myself. I am terrified at what I feel. I feel betrayed by my feelings. How can I not possess control of my bodily functions? How can I not retain the right to pilot the ship of my emotions wherever I so choose? For I am as helpless as a raft under the influence of a hurricane at sea.

She's in my mind like the sky. Wherever I turn, I am considering here coy smile. Whatever matter I discuss with my friends, I am bedazzled by her angelic voice singing sweet soft ballads in my mind. Even though I sit in church before an energetic and commanding preacher, I am engrossed not by a sermon but by her soft spoken nature though she be miles away.

Oh, how wretched am I, for my mind has developed a mind of its own! If I cannot resolve these feelings, I fear what I shall do unto myself. I believe that death is a better fate than a life without her. And oh, how fiercely I hold unto this belief.

To Be Continued.

*****Journal Entry 3*****

If you knew of whom I speak, you shall find that my feelings…passions…obsessions are justified.

She is the paragon of beauty, the very explicative definition of happiness. She is the cynosure of all eyes. Her fair skin can make a new born baby green with envy. Gorgeous even by angelic standards, she gives ‘attractive’ a new and sophisticated meaning.

One of a kind. Yes, she is one of a kind.

She stands tall with thighs thick like as the oak tree. Her hips jut out appealingly like a raging sea wave. Her breasts stand firm and ample like twin mountains, pointy, defying, proud, even rebellious to the downing powers of gravity. Her lips are soft and succulent, cherry red and pleasing to behold. Her voice is like a cool, calm stream, washing my soul with freshness and relief. Oh and when she laughs, it’s like an aphrodisiac. Her laughter come forth with naivety and the purity of a child. It strikes a strong chord in me every time and makes me feel like one who is hooked up to crystal meth.

Space will fail me to talk of her soft personality. Though she possesses the body a model will die for, her most striking trait is the softness of her touch. The sincerity of her words. The reality of her appearance. The surety of her affections. The permanence of her friendship. And the inalterability of her decisions.

Born to clergy parents, yet lacking the religious stiffneckedness that stands like a magnum opus among these folks, she is the very expression of flexibility. Understanding, slow to anger, lovely, passionate, godly—these are but a few words that collect in the character of the one who has stolen my heart.

She is a lover. She is a fighter. She is a survivor. She doesn’t take nonsense, and oh how terrible shall be that day that her anger rears its head in the land of the living. Woe unto the object of her rage: for you shall be better off in the darkness and despicable horrors of the underworld than in the presence of her mighty wrath. Tis because her anger is like a raging tempest. It shall not cease until destruction has been wrought in generous strokes; it shall not still until its trail is abundant in devastation; it shall not put to bed until the deaths it spawns are beyond the count of number.

Could this anger have been the author of my predicament? Or was it something else? Maybe our last few encounters hold a clue to this befuddlement of catastrophic proportion. I shall sit back for the next few days and try to recall, event by event, how she and I have fallen so far apart. I do hope that in this recollection I find a clue to enable me win her back. For even though it’s been months, I still find that my heart fills with warmth every time thoughts of her cross my mind.

To Be Continued.
