He saw her talking with her friends seated outside the café. She was laughing at something in a manner that made her throw her head back and eyes sparkle. He was in love with her beautiful eyes. It was her eyes that drew him closer. After a long wait he had finally mustered the courage to ask her to be his girlfriend. She said that she already had a boyfriend, but they could be friends. He walked towards her, and in a sudden motion splashed a bottle of acid in her face. Nobody else would now see her beautiful eyes.

Love. Sigh. The things it makes some people do. But he wouldn’t ever see those beautiful eyes again, would he? How self-defeating are our defensive and offensive moves, most times.
Love? I wonder.
Love makes us do things that may not make sense to some one else..
However as you rightly wondered, was THIS love?
Thank you, Ushu
I would never cal it ‘love’ either, Usha. Love would never prompt a person to do such a thing.
I like to think that It was attraction at first, which then perverted in to obsession and possessiveness
OMG! I actually let out a squeak as I read ‘splashed a bottle of acid..’! That was horrifying!
People and their crazy definition of ‘love’! They are so dangerous..
Crazy knows no bounds 😦
That came as a shock. How selfish and thoughtless people are, and on top of it downright cruel too.
That last line surely brought back all those gory happenings which we keep hearing now and then 😦
obsession makes people do crazy stuff and often, they don’t realize how they destroy lives. The death of Preeti Rathi in Mumbai immediately pops in my mind and I wonder why the jilted lovers do such thgs. I believe in free love.
This was very cruel on his part.. It was not true love.True love is tender and can never be brutal.Written very nicely.
My… that was a twist. I fail to understand how can a person love and yet harm anyone
Too close to reality for my liking…….But that’s life for many women, sadly 😦
I can’t can’t can’t like this!!!!! 😦
The sad reality of today.
Abhorrent acts by the youth of our society brings disgrace to the gentle feelings of LOVE…
Crazy, Stupid, Love or selfish love……………..
What a stalker that guy turned out to be…and truly he was obsessive and I doubt in love. Well written.
Oh My! That is scary. What a turn of events. 🙂
Insecurity, jealousy, possesiveness, grapes-are-sour-attitude….definitely not love. Things people do in the name of love, gives love such a bad name.
