A 100 Days of Love

Peter and Tina are sitting in the park doing nothing but simply gazing into the sky. Their friends are having out having fun with their beloved other halves.

Tina: I'm so bored. I wish I have a boyfriend to spend time with.
Peter: I guess we're the only leftovers. We're the only ones who are without a date.
(Both sigh and there was silence for a while)
Tina: I think I have a good idea. Let’s play a game!
Peter: Eh? What game?
Tina: Erm... It's quite simple. You have to be my boyfriend for 100 days and I'll be your girlfriend for 100 days. What do you think?
Peter: Okay... Anyway I don't have any plans for the next few months.
Tina: You sound like you aren't looking forward to it. Cheer up! Today will be the first day of our relationship and our first date. Where should we go?
Peter: How about a movie? I heard that there is a really great movie in the theatres now.
Tina: I don't think I have any better ideas. Let’s make a move!
(They went to catch a movie and Peter sent Tina home)

- Day 2 -
Peter and Tina went to a concert together. Peter bought Tina a keychain with a star.

- Day 3 -
They went shopping together for a friend's birthday present. They shared an ice-cream together and hugged each other for the first time.

- Day 7 -
Peter drove Tina up a mountain and they watched the sunset together. When night came and the moon glowed, they sat together on the grass and gazed at the stars. A meteor passed by. Tina mumbled something.

- Day 25 -
The couple spent time at a theme park together. They got onto a rollercoaster, ate hotdogs and cotton candy. Peter and Tina got into the haunted house and Tina grabbed someone's hand instead of Peter's hand by accident. They laughed about it together for a while.

- Day 67 -
They drove past a circus and decided to get in to watch the show. The midget asked Tina to play a part as his assistant in the magic show. They went around the circus to see other entertainments after the show.
They stopped at the fortune teller and she just said, "Treasure every moment from now on."
A tear rolled down the fortune teller's cheek.

- Day 84 -
Tina suggested that they go to the beach. The beach wasn't so crowded that day. They shared their first kiss with each other just as the sun was setting.

- Day 99 -
They decided to have a simple day together. They settled on a walk around the city. They sat down on a bench.

- At 1.23 p.m. -
Tina: I'm thirsty. Let’s rest for a while.
Peter: Wait here while I go get some drinks. What would you like?
Tina: Erm... Apple juice will be just fine.

- At 1.43 p.m. -
Tina waited for about twenty minutes and Peter was not back yet. Someone walked up to her.


Stranger: Is your name Tina?
Tina: Yes. How may I help you?
Stranger: A drunk driver crashed into a guy on the street just now. I think the victim is your friend.

Tina ran over to the spot with the stranger and sees Peter lying on the floor with blood all over his face and her apple juice still in his hands. The ambulance came and she went to the hospital with Peter. Tina sat outside the emergency room for five and a half hours. The doctor came out, and he sighed.

- At 11.51 p.m. -
Doctor: I'm sorry, but we did the best we could. He is still breathing right now but God would take him away from us very soon. We found this letter inside his pocket.

The doctor hands a letter over to Tina and she went into the room to see Peter. He looked weak but seemed at peace. Tina read the letter and burst into tears. This is what the letter said.

Tina,

Our 100 days is almost over. I had fun with you for the last 100 days. Although you may sometimes be greedy and less thoughtful, you have brought happiness into my life. I realized that you are a really cute girl and blamed myself for never taking the time to know you better. I have nothing much to ask for but I wish that we can extend the 100 days. I want to be your boyfriend forever and wish that you can be beside me all the time. Tina, I love you.

With love,
Peter

- At 11.58 p.m. -
Tina: (Sobbing) Peter, did you know what I wish for on the night that there was a meteor? I asked God to let us last forever. We were supposed to last 100 days so Peter, you can't leave me! I Love You! Can you come back to me now? I love you Peter! I Love You!

As the clock struck twelve, Peter's heart stopped beating. It was 100 days.

* Note *
Tell him/her you love him/her before it’s too late. You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. You never know who will be leaving you and never return ever again.

Ummm...good plot and everything, but I just kept laughing as I read it. Loved the title, so I was expecting something a bit more serious and intimate. This just sounded like a little kids dream, honestly. Develop the story a little more, maybe make it a dairy entry for everday. And most of all, decrease the cheesy lines.  <><

Yeah, I agree. You could really expand on this to make it deeper.
