Dear Augustus and Hazel,
Being a crazy Bollywood fan, I have grown up watching “happily ever afters". I believed that someday my dupatta will get stuck in someone’s wristwatch and that’ll be it. I believed that love is only real if it lasts forever.
But then you came along and changed everything. You made me realise that love stories aren’t always about happy endings. Sometimes, life places a full stop in the middle of the sentence. You lose the person you love the most but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great love story.
Gus, the moment you walked into Hazel’s life I knew you were right for her. I knew that you were going to give her all the love she deserves and you will be the one who is going to return that long lost smile of hers.She told you that she’s like a grenade and when she blows up, she would like to minimise the casualties.But no matter how hard Hazel tried to push you away, you always returned to her. You told her that it’ll be a privilege to get your heart broken by her. Maybe that’s what true love does to you. It makes you crawl back to each other. You became Hazel’s safe house which she’ll always return to while running from the hurricanes.
And Hazel, I don’t think any person could have loved Augustus more than you did. I know you wished a greater infinity for him and god, I wished an even greater one for you both. I guess sometimes no matter how hard we try, some forevers in our life are just insurmountable. But your little infinity was greater than any forever.When Augustus left you, my heart broke into pieces too many to be counted with fingers and too small to be seen with the naked eye. But that’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.
You two were like those two pieces of a scattered jigsaw puzzle which were meant to be together and I am glad that the universe blessed me with a love story as pure as yours. You made me experience a love so raw and real.
