Love Stories of Hawaii

Timeless Love

A 128 Mountains
Dedicated to May

Submitted by Robert

I didn't sleep well last night. When the cold moon pushed its way through my window, I could hear the creeps and groans of my home. May used to muse that when house sleeps, it snores. We had always been friends. She knew every girl I had ever dated and told me stories of every boyfriend she had known. It's funny, I would always be irritated because she would say too much and she would always be disappointed that I wouldn't say enough.

May graduated one year before me. She had just broken up with her jerk of a boyfriend and was ready to see the world. One day she said to me that she had found a job in Hawaii. It would start in four weeks time. She accepted it because it was a world away. I was shocked although I shouldn't have been. I didn't want her to go. I was deeply troubled by this news as I kissed her goodbye.

We kissed. For the next few weeks we were indivisible. Late into the evening and into the early hours of morning she would describe the islands as 128 mountaintops where her dreams could be found. Most often, she spoke of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Big Island, and Lanai. May said that seals, dolphins and whales lived in the surrounding waters because they were attracted to the islands' beauty. Through the bedroom window she would reach out to the stars and say that even they pointed to the sandy shores and green mountains of Hawaii.

On our last evening the cold light of the moon that pinned my face was broken by her warm silhouette. Suddenly, May scrunched her nose on top of mine and stared wildly into my eyes. "If I wait a year, will you marry me? We could go together. It would be paradise!" I was shocked. I didn't know what to say. So, I said nothing. She kissed my forehead as a tear fell and I gazed out onto a future I could not believe. The next day she was gone.

Now, I anguish back to the mistake I made. Sometimes when the moon pushes its way into my room, I dream it is skipping over the waves onto a sandy Hawaiian shore. I dream of a 128 mountains where I should belong. I can see May standing on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Big Island, and Lanai. Those nights, I dream of paradise.
