True Love Waits

True Love Waits is the sad story of a girl and a boy in love. Erica and Kyle long to be together, but circumstances seem to be conspiring to keep them apart.

True Love Waits

One day, Erica was lying on her bed when she got a call from her boyfriend, Kyle.

Kyle: Baby, we need to talk.

Erica: What do u mean, Kyle?

Kyle: Something has cropped up…

Erica: What? What’s wrong? Is it bad?

Kyle: I don’t want to hurt you, Baby…

Erica suddenly got a sinking feeling in her stomach. Oh my God, she thought, I hope he doesn’t want to break up with me. I love him so much.

Kyle: Baby, are you there?

Erica: Yeah, I’m here. What is so important?

Kyle: I’m not sure if I should say it…

Erica: Well, you already brought it up, so please just tell me.

Kyle: I’m leaving…

Erica: Baby, what are you talking about? I don’t want you to leave me, I love you.

Kyle: Not like that, I mean, I’m moving far away.

Erica: Why? Your whole family lives here.

Kyle: Well, my father is sending me away to a boarding school far away.

Erica: I can’t believe this…

All of a sudden, Erica’s father burst into her bedroom.

“Erica!” he yelled furiously. “What did I tell you about talking to boys?! Get off the damn phone!!”

Erica pretended to hang up and her father glared at her angrily for a few moments, then left, slamming her bedroom door behind him.

Kyle: Wow, your father sounds really mad.

Erica: You know how he gets… Anyway, I don’t want you to go.

Kyle: Would you run away with me?

Erica: Baby, you know I would. I would do anything for you, but I can’t… You don’t know what would happen if I did. My dad would kill me!

Kyle: Its okay… I guess… I understand…

Erica: I can’t believe what’s going on.

Kyle: I need to give you something tonight because I am leaving on Flight 180 in the morning. I need to see you now.

Erica: Ok, I’ll sneak out and meet you at the park.

Kyle: Great. Meet you there in twenty minutes.

The young lovers met each other at a nearby park. When Erica laid eyes on Kyle, she rushed over and gave him a big hug. He squeezed her tightly and kissed her on the cheek.

“Here you go,” he said, handing her a note. “This is for you. I’ve got to go.”

Erica was speechless and began to cry. Kyle tried to comfort her.

“Baby, don’t cry,” he said, soothingly. “You know I love you. But I have to go.”

“Okay,” replied Erica sadly and they both walked away.

When she got home, Erica took out the note Kyle had given to her and began reading it.

“Erica,

You probably already know that I’m leaving. I knew it would be better if I wrote you a letter explaining the truth about how much I care about you.

The truth is, is that I never loved you. I hate you so much. Don’t you ever forget that, Bitch. I never cared about you and never wanted to talk to you or be around you all the time. You really have no clue how much I really hate you. Now that I am leaving, I thought you should know that I hate you with every ounce of my being, Bitch. You were never good to me and you were never there for me when I needed you.

I didn’t think I could ever hate someone as much as I hate you right now. I never want to see you again. For the rest of my life, I will never miss kissing you. I will never want to cuddle up like how we used to. I will never miss you and that is a promise. You never had my love, and I want you to remember that. You better keep this letter because this may be the last thing you have from me, Bitch. I hate you so much. I never want you to contact me… Goodbye.

Kyle”

Erica was so shocked that she broke down crying and threw the letter into the garbage. Her heart ached and it felt as if it would never stop hurting. She just wanted to die.

The next day, Erica was still sad, depressed and lonely. She got a phone call from her best friend.

Friend: How are you feeling?

Erica: I still can’t believe this happened. I thought he loved me.

Friend: Oh, with regards to that letter. Kyle left me a message last night. He told me to tell you to look in your jacket pocket or something…

Erica: Umm… Okay. Hold on.

Searching through the pockets of her jacket, Erica found a small, crumpled piece of paper. It read:

“Baby, I hope you find this before you read my letter. I was afraid your dad might find it and read it, so I switched a few words… Here’s the code: Hate = Love, Never = Always, Bitch = Baby. I hope you didn’t take that seriously because I love you with all my heart and it was so hard to let you go. That’s why I wanted you to run away with me… Love, Kyle.”

Overjoyed, she picked up the phone.

Erica: Oh my God! It was all a big misunderstanding. His note was just a coded love letter! Kyle really does love me! He must have slipped the note into my pocket when he hugged me in the park. I can’t believe how stupid I’ve been!

Friend: LOL! OK, I’m happy for you, but I’ve got to go. Call me later.

Erica: Bye. I’ll be here waiting for my baby to call me!

After hanging up the phone, Erica sat down on the sofa and turned on the TV. There was a breaking news flash.

“An airplane has just crashed. Over 47 young boys died and there were no survivors. This is a tragedy we will never forget. The plane that crashed is Flight 180. It was on its way to an all-boys boarding school…”

Erica stared at the TV, open-mouthed as the remote control fell from her hands. She couldn’t believe it. Kyle was dead and now, she had nothing left to live for. She began shaking and crying uncontrollably.

An hour later, with tears streaming down her face, Erica went out to the garage and fetched a can of gasoline. She stood in the middle of her front garden and poured the gasoline over her head, then lit a match. She went up like a human torch.

When her father came home from work, he discovered her charred remains in the driveway.

Later that day, her phone rang but there was nobody there to answer it. Someone left a message on the answering machine:

“Hi, Baby! It’s Kyle! I guess you’re not home. I just called to let you know that I’m alive. I missed my flight because I wanted to see you one last time. I hope you are not worried about me. Guess what? I had a talk with my dad and he said I don’t have to go to the boarding school after all. So, I am staying here for good. Isn’t that great?”

    At least attend the funeral first only then suicide and left a will to be buried beside him. The girl must be a blonde..no offence girls ;)

  2. scaryharry says

    He said Flight 180 but on what airlines? Also the news cast said that the plane was heading to an all boys school. Is that the name of the city? Because I’m pretty sure this school doesn’t have its own runway.
    5/10 un-detailed storys

  3. sadboy21 says

    Kills herself 3 seconds later gets text message, i am staying forever!!!!!!!! .-. i was like………that girl a dumbass xD like kills herself without knowing .-.

  4. iisupavibbyii says

    Seriously? She went and killed herself without even knowing if Kyle was alive. Obviously anyone in that situation would be confused and really upset but you never know! Dumbass

  5. MR.MASK says

    How do I put this, the story has potential but something about the way it was told just seemed stupid,

  6. Charlotte057 says

    Plot twist/happy ending:
    The remains found were ACTUALLY a random girl who had been suicidal for years. Erica got Kyle’s message and couldn’t be happier. Her father had given up on separating the two love birds, and a wedding was held at the nearby beach. They lived happily ever after. The end. :)

  11. lizett says

    OMG.I just made an account for SFK.First time user, long time reader,i read every day for almost a year.Anyway the story was so sad:(

  12. Shadow_of_Darkness says

    And THAT’S why we don’t let the next generation get ahold of gasoline. XD

  13. XxScaryGirlSamaraxX says

    The girl was Stupid !! Atleast she should’ve checked whether his bf was dead or not, before committing suicide!!

  14. BriiamC says

    @Ag3939

    Romeo and Juliet was a three day relationship between a seventeen year old boy and thirteen year old girl that ended in death (approximently 6 deaths to be exact) by far it isn’t quite a “love story”. It wasn’t love, just hormones.

  15. ag3939 says

    omg this reminds me of Romeo and Juliet that was the most tragic love story ever!! :(

  16. xXxGrrrrRawrxXx says

    blah blah blah lame… totally saw where that was going…and i heard it somewhere else… can’t remember where… and no it wasn’t youtube.

  17. BloodymaryBloodymaryBloodymary says

    LOL Who else heard this on youtube and read the note the proper way?

  18. I love drama says

    For real? I already heard this story on youtube. This version is more of a kiddish version, cuz the one on youtube has the B word. NOT SAD, ALREADY HEARD IT!

  19. DeathlyPrincess says

    uuhhh she could have checked to make sure it was the right plane or at least checked with his parents

    Scaryforkids says: I agree. Also, not committing suicide at all would’ve been a good idea. :D

  20. soulserenade says

    This is soo sad… Thanks for putting up the sad stories SFK! btw, i hate that guy so much for surviving -.- but his probably gonna commit suicide anyway so…

  21. lookbehindyou says

    Hmmmmmm…… sounds like Romeo and Juliet how the girl think the guy is dead so she also kills herself but just vice versa.

  22. Dont take me seriously says

    Not what I expected. And who else thought of Final Destination when they read Flight 180??

  23. The_Yellow_Dash says

    -for now on when I have a girlfriend and something bad happened and it is related to her, I am gonna wait to see id she is still alive not kill myself and flight 180 is on the final destination but I don’t know if flight 180 actually crash though

  24. CaptainShipwreck says

    Well that escalated quickly. I don’t see how this is sad, but asinine

  25. clowns_dont_bounce says

    At the first part of the letter like the really mean one I was laughing my head off but then at the end…Ya 😢
