I was lonely and sad. Reason for the sadness I couldn't tell. I was told Love was the key to happiness. I was asked to find love, but how to go about it they can't tell.

I took a walk with my Dog- Meemee. Together we went to the park. There I saw Sandra my long time crush.

"Finally this is the opportunity I've been waiting for," I said to myself. I summoned courage and walked up to her with Meemee tagging along.

She welcomed me with open hands. We talked like long time friends. It was fun all through. We ate our lunch together and chatted like lovers. Guys around looked at me with envy. For Sandra was a beauty.

"I think I've found Love," I said to myself. We decided to take one last tour around the park but as I stood, the most unexpected happened. I stepped on her gown and poured the hot water from the flask on Meemee. Out of nowhere came a slap.

"You sluggish, good for nothing idiot- how could you?. Do you know how expensive this gown is?. You can't know-you wretched fool" Sandra shouted.

I was embarrassed, to say the least.

"I'm sorry. I'm deeply sorry" I mumbled with shame.

"Keep your sorry to yourself. I don't blame you . It's my fault. How could I have stooped so low to talk to someone like you?. ". She retorted and walked away.

All eyes were on me. Though tears weren't flowing, I was weeping. I felt something cold on my leg and I looked down to see Meemee licking my legs. Looking at me with pain. I was oblivious to his pain. I kicked it hard and it barked in pain. That was when I noticed the flask was open.

" Oh! The water poured on him" I said to myself with regret.

Silently I walked down to my Godmother's house. I called home to tell them I wouldn't be coming home that night. It was then I realised I haven't seen Meemee Since I kicked it so hard. I felt bad for what I did. Not only did I poured hot water on him, but I also kicked him so hard that he might have broken a rib. I hated myself- For thinking Sandra will love someone like me. For transferring my aggression on an innocent dog.

With shame, I went to school. Hoping I will apologise to Sandra and things will go back to how it were in the past. I like her so much and I'm sure the feeling is mutual. After class, I gathered my notes and went to her locker. She was seated with her friends.

"Excuse me, Sandra, please can I have a minute with you" I said to her silently.

"Say whatever you want to say here right in front of my friends Mr Man" she Shouted.

"I'm very sorry for what happened yesterday, it wasn't intentional-"

"It wasn't intentional?. Or that's just who you are?. A useless nerd" her friend Rachel said with a scornful look.

"I'm so sorry once again. Can we go back to being friends?. " I added, Ignoring Rachel's words and looks.

" See Valour, you are a nice boy. I like you a lot. You are smart and intelligent but you are not just good enough to be my friend- you're too quiet, dull, anti-social and poor for my liking" Sandra answered without pausing.

By now the whole class was gathered. Some look at me with amusement and some pity.

With shame, I walked out of the class and out of the school...

I find love in the most unlikely place

I walked home angry at myself for thinking someone like Sandra will love me despite my shortcomings.

I got to the gate and remembered how I treated Meemee the previous day. I felt ashamed that the one true creature that I could call a friend was hurt through my carelessness and Anger.

"I'm sure Meemee also hates me now"

So I thought until I opened the gate. Off came Meemee running with it tail wagging happily. I was shocked to see him happy to see me-

Despite how I treated him.

Despite all my flaws and shortcomings.

Despite my sluggishness and boring lifestyle.

Despite my behaviour towards it the previous day.

Despite how I've hurt him in the past.

Despite how I took him for granted so many times.

He still chooses to love me. He showed me the true definition of love and for this, I'm forever grateful.

Dedicated to Meemee

This is pure fiction but an analogy to show how my dog "Meemee" loved me unconditionally. He died in the year 2015. And till today I still feel his absence. Because of his death, I've shut some doors in my heart and I find it hard to love another Pet the way I loved him.

Thanks for reading!πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

So sorry for writing something sad this morning, also for inter-changing "he" & "it at intervals. I hope it wasn't confusing.

Though fiction but YOU have pointed out a good topic that we should not love any creatures on earth but keep loving on Gods.. Because once you started to love gods then you will be free from every thing and none can blame you as like sandra Did..

Awww! I actually love dogs but I am afraid on taking care of one as I am not sure if I will be a good owner. Dogs indeed is loyal and thoughtful that they will come back to you even if you will let them go away. They are our bestfriends. I have read something on fb as well, that only if dogs can talk, they would love to say that they love us.

I have had a resolve never to keep dogs because I had Greg as a beautiful dog and he was poisoned around the neighbourhood just a moment where he walked out of the compound. It was so mad at myself. So, I decided, I would rather never keep a pet if I can care enough for it..

So many of our dogs died from poisoning by neighbours too. It's really painful to see humans act so bad

You have a, shall I call it, "healthy imagination" to be able to write fiction like that and then tie it with your real memories with Meemee.

Maybe being sad or writing something sad is your way of remembering him.
