She was paralyzed
A drunken driver ran over her
He commited suicide, and failed
He was found in a pool of his own blood
They met one day in the hospital yard
She was under a tree, looking lovingly at the bright blue sky, somewhere in the distance. He just wanted to escape his boring daily life, so he talked to her with a smile.
It became a habit to meet there everyday.
They couldn't talk for a long time, but they both treasured their conversations.
One day she seemed pretty sad
She was on the verge of tears, he thought when he saw her.
He saw the margaritas that blossomed next to her
He decided to give her some. They were so pure, just like her.
"Hello again" He said softly
He started playing with the margaritas on his hands
"Spring is a ruthless season"
She whispered with a faraway look in her eyes
"Why is that?"
He asked her, curious to hear her answer.
"Everything is blooming, everything is alive..." She shouted
"... but I am here unable to move... How can the earth be so happy when I am like this... " She whispered the other part.
"That's a pretty selfish way to put it, isn't it?"
He crashed the margaritas in his hands. Why should we be here like this?, He thought.
"Have you once known anybody who is not selfish?"
She chuckled and a tear rolled down her cheek.
