25th October 2024

I am Angelina and this is my story ‘till date’. I can’t tell you what will happen in the future but right now am too scared to talk about it.

It is my wedding today and if you ask me how excited I am, I don’t think I will find the correct words to explain it to you. But let me tell you, wedding is not the only reason for the changes that I can foresee in my life, there is something more to the story that I came to know only yesterday and believe it or not, it has given me goose bumps all over my body. I could not sleep all night because of what I have discovered and am pretty sure if you will know; you are not going to believe it either. I mean how could this happen and is it really happening; are the two questions going around in my mind since yesterday and I have not found any answers yet. I am also not very sure if I should be discussing this for now with anyone around me as no one is going to believe me. I think the best that I can do now is to share my story with you and forget for a moment what will happen tomorrow or future.

As you will read through you will know that this date is not associated only to my wedding but a lot more things that has happened on this date i.e. 25th October. However, the title of this story is not anything to do with the date; I would say it is a mere co-incidence that so many great and worse things happened on the same date. I have kept the title as ‘I Wish’ for a reason that you will know in the first few chapters. But don’t just stop once you know it as there will be a lot more that I would like to share with you and may be then you can help me find answer my two questions that I just shared with you a minute back.

The story begins in year 1999, somewhere around end April. The wind was still cold but pleasant and sky was in colors of white and blue. It was the time when the Sun was getting hot with every day passing by and one could say the summer is near. It was the time when farmers had begun harvesting their crops. It was the time when Hungry, Poland and Czech Republic joined NATO and the first time when NATO attacked a sovereign country by launching the first air strikes in Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It was the time when Pluto, a dwarf planet with an eccentric orbit, changed from the eighth to ninth planet furthest from the Sun. It was the time when Euro was introduced. It was the time when nearly all metro cities and nations were speaking about Y2K and how to resolve the biggest computer issue that will happen to each and every computer all over the world while Melissa worm attacked internet and a time for many more things happening around the globe. But these all were not important, not at least to a group of few living beings, considering I had added much more importance to this year. You will know what I am speaking about as you come along me on my journey.
