The line between right and wrong is thin and nearly invisible. Everyone draws the line somewhere else. Sometimes, what you really want is on the other side of your line. The question is: do you cross the line for it? There are people who won't cross the line even if true happiness lies on the other side. This is the case for Dear Miss Right and Thoughtful Mister Right, who just so happen to meet at the most inconvenient time.
Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right did meet once before, actually. Thoughtful Mister Right had been jogging down the sidewalk for his daily exercise. He had a nice body. One of those that still looks good covered in sweat. He wasn't Mister Gorgeous—that's a different story altogether—but he still looked rather attractive. Dear Miss Right saw this of course but being Dear Miss Right, she didn't do anything to mislead Thoughtful Mister Right. They passed right by each other and he smiled because she was one of those women that look very pretty even without all the makeup. Again, not Miss Gorgeous—that's a different story, remember?
Poor Thoughtful Mister Right had no idea that the pretty woman he'd just passed was Dear Miss Right or else he would've stopped to speak to her. But he only smiled and kept running. Very soon, Thoughtful Mister Right ran straight into Lovely Miss Wrong.
Lovely Miss Wrong sat on a very different side of the line than Thoughtful Mister Right. She used her sly tactics to bring in Thoughtful Mister Right. Smiling and batting her eyes, she dropped her inexpensive watch deliberately in the path of Thoughtful Mister Right. He was fixed upon Lovely Miss Wrong's rather evil yet lovely face. The watch crunched under his foot and he stopped immediately to see the problem that always follows once hearing a crunch beneath your foot.
"Oh dear! My watch!" cried Lovely Miss Wrong who happened to be a wonderful actress.
"Oh no! Your watch? I'm terribly sorry, miss!" Thoughtful Mister Right apologized, falling right into the trap.
"Yes, my very expensive watch!"
"Oh dear. I'm so terribly sorry! How could I make such a thing up to you?" asked Thoughtful Mister Right who believed in kindness to all and correcting your wrong doings.
"Well, it looks like you'll have to take me to dinner."
"Oh, it's the least I can do."
"It is. Here's my number. Call me tonight and we'll schedule a dinner date," said Lovely Miss Wrong, handing Thoughtful Mister Right a business card and completing her trap.
That very night, Thoughtful Mister Right and Lovely Miss Wrong went to a fancy restaurant. Lovely Miss Wrong was soon convinced that Mister Right was her one and only true love. Thoughtful Mister Right had a wonderful time but he just thought Lovely Miss Wrong was now an acquaintance. Lovely Miss Wrong knew it and it would not do. From where she sat, deep in the 'wrong' side of the line, Lovely Miss Wrong plotted an evil, lifelong trap for Thoughtful Mister Right.
Dear Miss Right had continued walking that day and had the "pleasure" of meeting Woeful Mister Wrong. He'd been crying on a bench in the park, hoping someone like Dear Miss Right would come along to find him. Dear Miss Right did find him and was very worried about the crying man. She approached him and asked the matter of his tears. Woeful Mister Wrong thought up a fanciful lie and told Dear Miss Right of his "horrible dilemma." Dear Miss Right who believed in kindness to all and comforting all who are in pain, ate up his lies and invited to buy him coffee and lunch.
Woeful Mister Wrong was soon convinced that Dear Miss Right was his one and only true love. Dear Miss Right just thought Woeful Mister Wrong was a new acquaintance and nothing more. Woeful Mister Wrong knew this to be true and it would not do. From where he sat, far on the 'wrong' side of the line, he planned his evil, lifelong trap for Dear Miss Right.
Very soon, Lovely Miss Wrong and Woeful Mister Wrong concocted their evil traps for Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right. Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right fell right into the evil traps and fell into a hesitant love for Lovely Miss Wrong and Woeful Mister Wrong. The signs were everywhere. Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right had questioned their love for Lovely Miss Wrong and Woeful Mister Wrong numerous times. But the lies were well woven and the traps were well planned and soon, wedding bells were heard for all the wrong people.
Thoughtful Mister Right and Lovely Miss Wrong were wed on the same day, in the same church, and at the same time as Dear Miss Right and Woeful Mister Wrong. A double wedding it is sometimes called. That is the inconvenient day Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right met.
You see, this was not a cliché movie where they suddenly realize their true love, marry another, and end up happily ever after. This was their real life (however real it gets within the perfectly horrible mind of Lazy Catz). They had no idea their real true love was getting married to the wrong person right beside them.
So they continued their lives but now less ignorant of the other's existence. The couples grew to be close friends. And soon after the honeymoons, Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right did realize that they'd married the wrong people.
They'd become friends and fallen in love with each other. They did no wrongs to their spouses by fooling around behind closed doors or divorcing which can prove to be a nasty affair. They sat on their side of the line rather lonely and trying to make the best of the situation by staying friends.
Lovely Miss Wrong and Woeful Mister Wrong, on the other hand, also found that they'd married the wrong people. They'd been fooling and cheating behind any and every door that was even partially closed. They decided to "live on the edge" by not divorcing which can prove to be a nasty affair. They sat behind the closed doors on their side of the line rather happy and twisting the situation to their advantage.
This is the part when the less cliché author who believes in happily-ever-afters says that they all got into a nice little arrangement, maybe divorced, or maybe just exchanged wedding bands and went on in happily ever after. But being the tragic writer she is, Lazy Catz decided to say something more like this:
The situation kept up this way for all 92 years of their lives. That's right, they all died at the tragic age of 92. 92 years of wishing they could've, would've, probably should've crossed the line. But none of them did.
Lovely Miss Wrong mistaken for an overly protective father's daughter, resulting in the death of Woeful Mister Wrong. The overly protective father became nervous, resulting in the death of Lovely Miss Wrong.
Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right were on a returning flight when the plane fell out of the air, resulting in the deaths of Thoughtful Mister Right and Dear Miss Right and a lonely old woman who had been speaking to them.
They all died happy, mind you. But if they had crossed their lines, they may have led happier lives. The line can prove to be difficult to cross once you find it. The line between right and wrong is thin and nearly invisible. Everyone draws their line somewhere else. Sometimes, what you really want is on the other side of the line. The question is: Will you cross The Line?
A/N: I'm not trying to pressure anybody into anything here. It was just a random sad story. You're not supposed to make decisions you don't want to make because you think your life will suck if you don't pick the right choice. Most likely, it won't.
