One fairy’s story – Johnika

 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights – James 1:7


When my sister announced us that she was pregnant, we all had mixed feelings. We were very happy and at the same time nervous. Since she already had complications with her first daughter, we didn’t want her to go through the same thing again. But every child is God’s blessing and He knows what is good and what we need. And God’s timing is perfect.  We welcomed the good news with open arms.

One Week Old 

She was off work during her pregnancy until the baby was born also being said that she was also house arrest my mom and I for her and the child’s safety. We restricted any outing or anything else that needed traveling outside the house.  Since she was someone who can’t sit in place, it was very difficult to keep her in the house. Of course, she would try to sneak out without our knowledge and get caught. As I was so scared for her and the baby, I would get mad at her and we would throw pillows and other stuff at each other ( just kidding).

As time passed by, it was close to her due date (April 2016), she had moved in at my place and since I lived on the second floor it was very difficult for her to go out. Since we were already five girls in the house, we were all expecting a little cute boy. But God’s plans are always different from ours; He added another girl in our gang. #GIRLPOWER

One Month Old 

The day finally came; the day when I was going to see our little one for the first time. About 6 AM, my sister started feeling weird and went to the hospital.    Around 8 AM, we received a call from there and we were told the baby was born but….

 But, we were told that the mother and the baby went through complications and they were both not okay. As we are panicking, we got to know that my sister started to bleed internally and they had to take the baby out as soon as possible. Just in 15 minutes, the doctors checked the baby’s heartbeat; it was at 75. They took her to the operation room, had a c-section and at 6:30; the baby was born.

Our little baby went through complications as well; She was not breathing and only began to breath 30 minutes later. The doctors didn’t want to take any risk, so they transferred the baby to another hospital and my sister was left alone.  We were told that the baby’s brain may have been affected by the lack of the oxygen in the body. We just kept praying for the mother and the baby’s health. We took my sister to my place again as she was having difficulty and still recovering physically and mentally. We wanted to keep her with us and be at her side. Once again, my room was rent out for another month.  But the baby was still at the hospital; it was heartbreaking to see them in two different places, ( I am not crying right now).

Six Months Old

A few weeks later, we received the good news that we can bring our little angel home and was told the baby was in a good shape. But we took good care of her and my sister, we didn’t want to make anything worse since they already went through a lot. Until today,  our little angel had no problem, even the doctors are surprised to see a baby with complications at birth with no sign of problems now. They will constantly repeat that they can’t believe their eyes how healthy is our angel. She is such happy baby, always smiling, and always brighten up everyone’s life with her smile.

Ten Months Old

YES! MIRACLES DO EXIST! WE ARE THANKING GOD EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR GIVING US A BEAUTIFUL ANGEL:

Later in the evening, my friend was waiting for me at my office.

-Did you even try to talk to her today?

-No! But I saw her twice, I answered him joyfully.

-You are an idiot, man! You are not even realizing that you got this job just to meet her and do something! Somehow you got her phone number; I thought you would at least call her and talk, but you’re just hopeless!!

Yes! he’s right. I am working at the coffee shop just to meet her again and talk to her. She would come here every day just before going to her office which is a few blocks away. Every time I would see her, I would be speechless. TOTAL BLACKOUT!

– Tell me, man! what are you planning to do? Are you going to spend the rest of your life working these crazy shifts trying to find a way to talk to her, while she finds someone else and she settles down?

-NO WAY DUDE! I CAN’T IMAGINE A LIFE WITHOUT HER!

– Then what are you waiting for? Waiting for the Santa Clause to put some sense in your head?

I did not know what to answer for that comment. I just laughed and bowed my head down.

As he was leaving the room, he just shouted at me that I was useless and nobody could help me and that I was going to die single. SINGLE FOREVER!

“Long day ahead, but can’t miss a day at the coffee shop. You may wonder why: there is one person who is the reason”

        Every night I take my phone to dial the number that I had for so long and talk to her but I end up not doing so. I don’t know exactly why this feeling. I never hesitated like this in my life. When I have something in mind, I would execute it without hesitating. DO or DIE POLICY! Despite my self-confidence and my braveness; when it comes to this person, I am the loser of the world.

            I always end up calling my best buddy whom I share everything with. We’ve been through all: secrets, fights and everything else that you can imagine. He thinks I am good for nothing; he doesn’t even want to listen to me anymore. I guess he’s fed up with my drama. Oh well! Since we run a business together; he can’t escape from me that easily.

But he always picks up my calls!

-“What’s up, dude!  Let me guess: you have dialed a number, but end up calling me. Am I right?”

-“Nothing man! I don’t know! I am so nervous all the time.”

-“What’s wrong with you, if you can’t even talk, what the freak are you going to do?”

-“Don’t know! talk to you later.” And I just hung up. I was not able to answer him. I got to do something about it!

           I just sent him a message saying that I will talk to him tomorrow in person.

          And he just replied me “Good Night! let me sleep!”

Sleep? I checked the time and it was almost 2 in the morning. OH GOD! WHAT AN IDIOT! I thought it was like 9 or something.

He must be thinking that I am crazy! Thank God I didn’t call her at this time.

It has been few years I start working here, I made few good friends. Thanks to the manager, who was my friend, I got the job right away. He was wondering why I was insisting on this posting. Nine to five at the coffee shop and working for my company from home. It is not easy, but I enjoy what I do which makes the work easier. I started my company right after graduating from University.

I kept my personal business a secret at the shop; my coworker knew me as someone who was in desperate need of getting a job to support my family. Even though the manager was my friend,  I made sure he won’t divulge my secret to anybody. Working at the coffee shop was something unexpected but something I will never regret. I enjoyed every single day working here.


Since the coffee shop is at the center of few companies, the shop is always busy, we barely have time to stop for a small chat.

As I entered  –Good Morning guys!

– What’s up ! come and help me, dude! We will talk later! 

I quickly got at the back of the counter and start serving.


I start off my day perfectly until I meet that one person every morning and that’s when my world around me stops working

There is a timing for everything. There is a will for everything. There is a way for everything.

As she was confused,  she waited for him to come back, but everything seems well planned, he didn’t show up in the front.

           – He escaped! If I see his face again I would smack something on his head! She was frustrated! She did not know what to do anymore; the suspense was over but what’s next?

She couldn’t stay there longer; she had to leave.She went home and she went through her daily chores and as she was sipping her homemade coffee in front of the TV. She was not even paying attention to the shows, but all she was thinking is about the guy she met, who she actually knew him for the past two years.

         -How is even possible? I thought we mutually hated each other. Why would he even do such thing? Is he playing? Is he serious? It is so confusing!

She had many unanswered questions. She was not able to think properly. Nobody would have imagined her in this situation! Was she in love? She decided to meet him face to face tomorrow and sort out this mess. As she was talking to herself she heard her phone ring, she was panicking! She took the phone it was a text message… from him.

         -OH MY GOD!

She opened the message and began reading.

          -From the day I saw you I knew that you were the one, the one who I want to spend the rest of my life with. I cannot imagine a life without you. I never had the chance to tell you, even though we would see each other every day. I never had the courage to let you know how much it made me happy to see you every morning. Your smile would make my heart beat faster. It took me two years to tell you now; how much you mean to me. I Love You! 

She was heartbroken.

    Instead of going home, she stayed in her office room; thinking. She was panicking whether to go or not. she was going out of her mind. She could not make any proper decisions. She was scared but at the same time more and more curious about the unknown person who’s disturbing her.

        – What if it is some kidnapper? Maybe not! Maybe it is! She was confused. She didn’t tell anyone around here. – I would look like a crazy girl!

5.25pm

She decided to go and meet the stranger, she did not want this prank to continue as she can’t concentrate on anything.  She left her office and walked toward Starbucks; just across her office building.

She entered the coffee shop  – I’ve been coming to this place for years and even this morning;  I would have not thought this place would actually give me panic attack one day.

She looked around her, everybody seems to be busy; listening to music, working on their laptops, drinking their coffees, talking to their friends. Strange!  A prank? – I am looking like an idiot without knowing what to do

She went to the counter and ordered her favorite coffee. It was the same person at the counter as this morning. – I hate him: he never writes my name properly. I gave up repeating myself.

She took her coffee and went toward a table. – I will wait 15 minutes if nothing happens I will leave this place and ignores the messages. But who could it be? As she was having many unanswered questions; she looks at her misspelled name. She could not believe her own eyes: – My name was finally written CORRECTLY! As she was reading it for the fifth time she noticed something else under her name.

– I’m glad you came. Enjoy your coffee! and the note ended with a heart !!!!!!!!!!!

Her heart stopped functioning.

As she turned to look at him. He had left the counter.

The moment they met ! The moment she knew ! She knew she was not alone anymore ! She has fallen ! She has fallen in love! Madly in love !

To the strongest women.; she build her own empire. Build it with confident and faith. Depend on no one except you.


Before reading the part 3, please read the first and the second part of the story.                                       Thank You!                                                                                                                                    Part 1 click here                             Part 2 click here


        As she rushed to work, she did not reply to the messages.But, she could not concentrate on anything else either. She almost forgot to lock her door; thanks to her neighbor who reminded her to lock. In her 30 minute trip to work, she already created a hundred scenarios in her head. But , she still couldn’t find the person behind this mysterious texts.               -AH! It must a prank! No doubt; she laughed to herself 

Arrived at her office, she quickly sneaked in her room and fixed her messy hair as she was getting ready to start her day. She went through her phone and as she was putting it away; she received her mysterious message

       –OH GOD ! what’s up now ! 

And she rushed to read it : – Hey Good Morning beauty! Looking pretty in that blue dress today. Hoping to see you soon… have a wonderful day. Catch you later. 

-WHAAAAT ! she screamed ! How does he even know that I am wearing a blue dress ? but how? can someone explain to me? (obviously, she was talking to herself out loud) Is he stalking me ? Who can it be? That guy on the bus with his headphone? The guy I crossed at the entrance? No can’t be! – I see him every day at the entrance, he hates me anyways. (yeah, lot of people don’t like me;  for being myself) So it is not anyone from the office.

        She was not only curious but nervous and scared too. She never experienced this kind of situation before. She didn’t even know how to react and how to respond.  The fact that she had an attitude (not in a bad way though) no one ever approached her. She was smart; she spoke her mind and she was not afraid anyone.

As the day passed, she was debating whether she should reply or ignore the message. And she was hesitating if she should go to meet the person or not after work.

,Around 5pm -end of her shift 

She received her second text of the day. -Will be there at 5.30 sharp. waiting for you at Starbucks across your office. 

-OH! MY ! GOD ! what to do now!

 But,  who is he………

The Proposal Episode 2 –

              As she was hesitating, she grabbed her phone.  Obviously ! She couldn’t hold the suspense anymore. She wanted to know !  For her surprise! the notification was not what she expected. It was an e-mail from a random newsletter that she was subscribed for. It made her heartbeat rates rise for nothing. In fact, she did secretly expect a message from that person. She was kind of liking it, even though, she was not admitting.  Yes ! Of course! She convinced once again that someone was just pranking her. She went back to bed to get ready to sleep but she couldn’t sleep this time. Her anxiety was at a high level that she felt actually felt her heartbeat.

            She was anxious to find out who was the person behind the messages. She could not come to a conclusion. She wondered if she met any new people recently. She wondered if she gave her number to anyone. She wondered if her number was public somewhere that she wasn’t aware of. As she was thinking she fell asleep.

  • The next morning.

She woke up in a hurry; “I am late for work!”  She grabbed her phone to check the time. She was relieved, she had one hour to get ready for work, but she was in a rush, she could not miss her bus.But, wait.. did she really see what she saw?  Is she dreaming or is it the reality?

She received two new messages from the same number ! AND it was exactly right after she fell asleep.“How did I not hear the notification? “ Without any hesitation, she opened the message.

” Good night darling! Would you like to go for a coffee tomorrow after work”

right after this one.

“Can meet up at the Starbucks near your work”

She almost fainted.
