There's A Grave For My Love Where Her Parents' Satisfaction Blooms

I don't know what to say. I used to be a bad boy in college but suddenly, I fell in love with an innocent girl in my class. Somehow, I found a chance to meet her, talk to her, and I didn't want to miss the chance.

All this started in the year 2013 when I started college. After some time of being friends with each other, I really wanted to share all my feelings with her. But I am a stupid guy and I don't have guts to say anything. Finally, after some time, I stopped talking to her. And then she came to me and asked me why I had suddenly gone on mute.

After some time, I gathered courage and proposed to her-
I wrote her a letter. She came to me after some time and said that I have to wait until we complete our education. I accepted it.

We were good friends with each other. We went to college on the same bus and sat next to each other. And after almost 11 months, it was my birthday. That birthday in 2014 was the best. She said yes. I was overjoyed and I thanked her for trusting me.

We have been together for last 3 years and we are very happy with each other. After completing graduation, she moved to Mumbai for higher studies. And suddenly an incident changed everything. Her brother eventually got to know about us because he looked through her email. And he started telling her what is wrong and what is right about the way she was leading her life.

I am not saying that her brother was wrong- it was his duty, and in fact, it's the duty of every brother. But suddenly, my girlfriend said to me that she was going to break up with me and doesn't want to be in contact with me. I was crying for her for the last 4 months, and I want to talk to her at any cost, but she doesn't want to listen to anything.

She said that if we are in a relationship, it would hurt her parents and she would be cheating on them. After 4 months, around the time of my birthday, I was happy because it was our 3rd anniversary. I tried to call her and text her but she hasn't replied to a single thing. I was crying that day and I was missing her too.

Even today, I can't decide whether to move on or wait for her. I really want to be with her because she is my first love and I am damn serious about her. She changed me completely from a bad guy to a good guy.

She makes me a better man, she makes me want to do better in life. I am not ready to move on. I really want to know how much longer to wait.
