It was a beautiful Saturday morning at the cherry farm when a friend made a startling revelation about her true identity. Though she sometimes dressed up like a man it never crossed my mind that she too likes women.
She’s been with the same woman for 17 long years. Let’s hide their names as Jasper and Amber.
Jasper is married to a man and had a son. Amber, on the other hand, is also married to a man and was blessed with two sons and a daughter. Both had been unhappy with their marriages. Jasper admits she started to like women way before she married her husband. Was she trying to hide her lesbianism? Jasper said she only wanted to live a normal life the main reason why she decides to marry her husband. On the other hand, Amber married her husband who is an overseas contract worker. He is always out of the country for overseas work and would only come home once a year or once every two years. She is straight who happens to fall in love with her lesbian friend.
It all started with the game of mahjong, a game of Chinese origin usually played by four persons with tiles resembling dominoes and bearing various designs, which are drawn and discarded until one player wins with a hand of four combination of three tiles each and a pair of matching tiles. A common friend normally invites the two to play with a group of women. To make the story short, things between the two started to develop to the surprise of everyone.
Amber explains that there is something she cannot explain that she really likes about Jasper. Jasper, on the other hand, states that she too felt the same way about Amber.
It was a shared love that they cannot explain. Both admitted that during the 17 years that they’ve been together there were ups and downs in the relationship, but one thing, they said, that strongly binds them together is their true and unconditional love for each other.
It was that kind of love that both Jasper and Amber proudly said that made their lesbian relationship last for 17 long years. Asked as to what kind of love they felt for each other, both shared that it is that kind of love that is unconditional where you want only the best thing to happen for your partner. It’s true love where two hearts beat as one.
Jasper shared that the deepest secret to their lesbian relationship is when every time they are faced with a problem, they let their love for each other come in. She indicated that when there is love there is no problem or misunderstanding you cannot solve.
Indeed it is the most common secret among relationships that last very long. It is that kind of love that is hard to explain that will dictate oneself to give in to the other person we truly love and care about. If love is always present in the lesbian relationship then there is no reason why it cannot last long.
Jasper and Amber were both happy to share their true love for each other and they still do not have plans of letting each other go. Both are now in their early 50’s and happily live together as one under one roof.
