Dale, Sindy, Carol are three friends.

Dale was chased by all the girls in our high school.
Sindy was one of those popular girls. Cheerleader and stylish.
Carol was just one of those plain and average girls .
Sindy and Carol were both totally mad over Dale.
Sindy didn't have to do anything to attract Dale.
For she was already attractive enough.
Carol on the other hand, showered Dale which love and care.
Carol wasn't ugly at all.
In fact, she looked sweet and pleasant.
But she wasn't a cheerleader, she was very normal and simple.
So like everyone expected, Dale chose Sindy.
For Carol was just one ordinary and plain girl.
While Sindy was labeled as the cool and attractive type.

Dale always insulted Carol. 
Telling her what a 'Plain Jane' she was.
And how dumb she looked.
Which obviously made Carol feel so hurt and useless.
That's life. Carol never gave up though.
She wanted to prove something to Dale.
She wanted to prove that looks aren't everything.
She studied hard, really hard.
She became the top girl, and all the guys who once ignored her, chased her.

But she never forgot Dale.
Everyday, she put a red rose in Dale's locker.
Always with the same words.
'I care for you, and I always will'
Because she knew that Dale was facing a hard time.
 
Dale began to realize.
How dumb he had been.
His beloved girlfriend, Sindy.
Was flirting with other guys.
He regretted for choosing the wrong girl.
Sindy broke up with Dale later.
For she had found a wealthier guy.
Dale felt so cheated, stupid and dumb.
 
He went to look for Carol.
He knelt on his knees, and said.
"Carol, please forgive me. Do you want to marry me?"
Carol rejected him, much to everyone's surprise.
She only uttered these words.
"You've suffered a great loss, so I don't want you to face another one" 
Dale felt disappointed.
He didn't understand a word that she said to him.
But they became good friends.
Did everything together.
 
Dale began to change into someone better.
Because Carol showered him with the love he never experienced before.
They just accepted him for his looks.
But Carol accepted him for himself .
She changed him.
 
Carol continued putting a red rose into his locker everyday.
With the same words. She never forgot.
 
One day, Carol didn't turn up in school.
She didn't come for a week.
At first, Dale thought that she was on a vacation with her family.
Because she told him that she would be going Hawaii with them.
But one day. He received a call from the General Hospital.
Saying that Carol was about to die.
She had been suffering from cancer.
But Carol forbade them from telling him.
Because she didn't want Dale to worry about her.
But now that she was about to die.
She wanted to see Dale for the last time.
 
Dale rushed to the hospital.
When he saw how weak Carol was.
Tears began rushing down his cheeks.
He whispered.
"Why didn't you tell me earlier? Why did you hide this from me?"
She looked at him . And smiled weakly at him.
"When I said that I didn't want you to suffer from facing another loss, I meant this. I didn't want to tell you because I didn't want you to worry. I wanted to spend my last days with you cheerfully." Dale looked at her.
"You can't leave me!" he said.
"What will I be without you?"
"You'll be who you are now. I will always be there by your side. Never forget that. Cherish those times. Live life happily. And one more thing."
"Yes?" "I love you" And she died. Dale screamed.
He still couldn't accept Carol's death.
He had only spent a month with Carol.


A month. But Carol changed his life in a way.
A way that no one could ever explain. He regretted.
But he knew that Carol would always be keeping an eye on him from Heaven.
 
Sometimes We just don't appreciate those people who really care for us.
Until they leave us. Until we lose them. Then we regret.
Outer beauty doesn't matter; it's the inner one that counts.
It's better to tell someone how much you love them.
Rather than to not tell them and lose them without telling them.
You'll regret Love is. When we fight till the very last minute.
Just to show and tell someone how much we love them.
