Thursday, October 29, 2015
“What’s the matter, dear? You look upset. Don’t tell me you’re still worrying about our fellow Superheroes having their usual Lover’s Quarrel?”

“For the last time, don’t call me that. Argh. Seriously. And what else could I be worrying about? If it’s not a threat to The World, it’s those two arguing and fighting. Lately, it seems like the latter’s been happening even more than the former.”

“Come on dear, stop worrying. Those 2 always manage to patch things up anyway. It’ll all be all right, you’ll see.”

“Seriously, don’t you get it? Argh. This is not something that should be taken lightly. This is really very serious, I swear.”

“And what’s so serious about this dear? Those two fighting is normal for them, you know? Very normal. Frankly, I’d be more worried if they weren’t having their usual daily spats. That could be a possible sign of the Apocalypse or the End of The World.”

The Lover’s Quarrel - Cute, Fun, Amusing?

Saturday, October 24, 2015
“Argh. I can’t believe those two are at it again. Seriously, when will they stop? They should know better. Ugh.”

“Calm down, will you? You’re just getting yourself all stressed out, dear.”

“Don’t call me that. Are you even listening to me? Did you even hear what I said?”

“Of course I heard you… dear. I’m always listening to you. But, in this case, I don’t even have to. Those 2 argue on what seems to be a daily basis. It’s not even a surprise anymore. So, what are our dearest friends arguing about now? I take it that it’s quite serious if you’re so upset.”

“Grr… I swear, those two…”

“Come now, I think it’s cute. Their lover’s quarrels are always so amusing and fun to watch.”

“Argh. I can’t believe you just said that. Cute? Seriously? If it were anyone else, it wouldn’t matter. But you know who those 2 are and what they’re supposed to be. Ugh, I swear, I have no idea how they became The World’s Superheroes.”

“Well, with our power and strength and magical abilities and-”

“Can it, will you? I know all that. You know that’s not what I meant. Seriously, someone needs to tell those 2 that ‘with great power, comes great responsibility’. They’re supposed to be looking out for the Citizens of The World. Instead, all they do is argue all the time. I swear, they never stop. Ugh.”

“Come on dear. They do get along as well. Besides, they’re not the only Superheroes around here. They’ve got us to help them out. We’re Superheroes too, you know?”

“Just as well that we are. After all, someone needs to be responsible.”

What Would You Do If Your Dreams Are Broken And How Can People Pay For Their Cruelty?

Wednesday, October 21, 2015
“No, not again,” you cry out in frustration, eyes watering. “But, but why? What am I doing wrong? Why can’t this just turn out okay?”

There is no satisfactory response. All you get is a cold, unfeeling rejection form letter staring at you. It wasn’t even personal and it couldn’t have sounded less sincere if it tried. They say that they’re sorry but you know they’re really not.

You sigh. Why does this have to happen? You’ve been trying for months and the result is always the same. How is this fair?

You want to cry out your hurt and your despair and you can’t stop the tears as they fall down your face. But you swipe them away with your hand, willing yourself to stop crying. You can’t cry, not now anyway. You need to focus. You need to try and fix this.

Eventually, you find someone to talk to, but you can’t see their face and they tell you nothing that can help. You just want some advice, you just want to know what you’re doing wrong so you can fix it. But they say nothing of use. They just belittle you and make accusations and assumptions without really looking at the facts. You keep trying to explain, asking for a chance, telling them to reconsider.

Your mind repeats a mantra of ‘please, someone give me a chance, what did I do wrong, please reconsider, please someone hear me out, someone listen to me, please’.

But it’s no use.

You’re faced with unsympathetic and cruel people who couldn’t care less, who think that just because they’re so successful and rich and have accomplished so much that they can just look down on everyone else and mistreat them.

No one understands you. You struggle not to cry all over again, standing up to just leave, unable to take this anymore. You can’t help but feel bitter and resentful, thinking this is so unfair.

Outside, as you stare up at the dark starry sky, you let your emotions and feelings wash over you. You can’t help but feel so angry and frustrated, furious and pissed off. You wish it didn’t have to be this way. You just want your voice to be heard.

One day, you think, some day, these people, all those who rejected you, all those who never gave you a chance, all those who were never there, they will get what’s coming to them. “This I swear, this I promise,” you solemnly say with only the stars and the moon as your witness.

Years pass. You didn’t lie. You kept your promise.

In the end, everyone did get what they deserved.
