200 Words Love Story: wish I met you sooner
Jakarta -

Have you ever felt that everything you've ever wanted is standing right in front of you, but they're not yours to have? Yes, this is one of those stories.

A story of two people, Terang and Ombak, who loved each other but can't be together for a reason we all know too well; timing.

*The beginning of their encounter was incredibly profound. A genuine, one-of-a-kind connection.*

Terang is a chef, while Ombak is an architect. They met five years ago when Terang wanted to set up her own cafe, and Ombak was entrusted with the design. Both are ambitious individuals who know what they want, and this is precisely what they like about each other.

*The truth is sometimes, regardless of how great you might be for each other, it just wasn't meant to happen.*

Now, they're both in their mid-30s. As close friends, they went through a lot of phases of life together and grew together in almost every way. It goes without saying, they know they love each other. Even so, the void in their hearts is losing the battle with ambitions and egos that have always been a stumbling block for them to be together.

*"I really wish I had met you sooner," said Ombak. To this, Terang didn't give any response.*

There was a moment when they began to question themselves, doubting their decisions. They questioned love in its entirety, even to the point where they associated love with pain and the line between the two blurred.

They wonder why can't everything be simpler. Now, they're left with no other choice but to realize that sometimes love just isn't enough to make something work.
