Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind (concluding part)

‘Then ask her’
‘Ok’ said Rhea
Rhea went to Myra’s house and explained to her the whole plan and she was obviously up for it. But she didn’t know if anybody from the group knew she lived in the building and was best friends with Rhea so it would be a huge gamble for her to join the group.
‘What if they know you live here, tell them you’ve been seeing them for a while and wanted to join the cause’ said Rhea
‘Yeah ok, you don’t worry about me, I’ll take care of that; you just plan out what you want to do after that’ said Myra
The next morning Myra went downstairs and stood amongst the group, nobody noticed her for a while and she stood there quietly observing and noting down everything in her mind.
‘Hey’ said a young girl in pink tracks
‘Hey’ said Myra
‘You’re new here right?’ she said
‘Yes I have been seeing you guys for a while and I also believe in your cause, that girl should donate her heart, she has a chance to save a life so why isn’t she doing it’ said Myra
‘Yeah right, come on, say it out loud, save a life, donate your heart’ said the girl in pink tracks
Myra joined the group and stayed with them throughout the day and collected all the information she could. When the group of people went home at night she went straight to Rhea’s house to report all that she had seen and heard today.
‘Hey, come on in’ said Rhea
‘Well, what can you tell us tiger?’ asked Rhea
‘Tiger, I like the name?’ said Myra
‘Ok, back to the point, these people are just people like us, college goers, young families, old couples and so on. On humanitarian grounds they want you to donate your heart because there are so many people in this world who need a heart transplant and will do anything just to see their loved ones live a little longer. But most importantly there is one individual who is instigating this whole operation. He is the one who is probing them again and again to come here and create nuisance, because he doesn’t have anything better to do in his life he creates a ruckus In other peoples’ lives’ she explained
‘How do you know all that in just one day?’ asked Rhea
‘I spoke to his daughter, I made friends with her’
‘I’m impressed’ she said and suddenly felt two lips on her face. Myra kissed her and quickly retracted.
‘Whoa, what was that?’
‘I’m sorry, I don’t know why I did that; won’t happen again’ she apologized
‘No don’t be, kiss me again it felt nice’ said Rhea. And both of them kissed again, this time with more passion and intensity. Myra went home after a few minutes without saying anything; the whole night both of them were up thinking about it.
Next on the agenda was to announce it to the world what Rhea wanted to do and with a bang not to forget. Myra came home in the morning and both were brainstorming how to go about it. Each of the girls were looking at each other and smiling, not saying anything about last night; it was clear from their faces that both of them liked it but none were ready to talk about it yet.
So, they decided to do a video telling the world her decision and the reason behind it. Preparations started and the next day, on the day of the video shoot, both girls were all geared up.
‘Do you think it’s going to work?’ asked Myra
‘Yes it will, in today’s day social media is the key. You put anything and everything and it will spread like a virus’ described Rhea
‘I’m keeping my fingers crossed’ said Myra
‘5, 4, 3, 2, 1…go’
‘Hello, my name is Rhea. I’m 20 years old and I have a heart condition. Instead of one I have two hearts beating inside of me. The many perks of having two hearts are increased concentration, exceptional athleticism, phenomenal metabolism rate and I have an IQ of 180 which in itself is awesome.
Many doctors and scientists have done tests, research for years and years, and poked needles in me to reveal no results. They have named me a freak – one in all humanity.
What do you think I am? I don’t think I’m a freak; I’m just your next door girl with the same feelings and same problems that you as a normal person have; I have the right to live my life the way I want to, please let me be happy and let me live my life peacefully, that’s all I have to say to you.’ She said with her eyes full of tears
‘That was incredible Rhea, I’m touched. I hope others will be too’ said Myra wiping tears from her eyes
‘Yeah, even I didn’t think I would be this emotional saying all this’ she said
‘Great, now to share it on to the internet’ said Myra
She put the video on the internet and shared it on every popular website, told all her and Rhea’s friends about it and within no time the video became viral. Every kid on the block was watching it, everyone from young and old, was talking about it; it was everywhere, on the internet, TV, newspaper, radio, it was phenomenal. Within a few days reporters were outside Rhea’s house who wanted to interview her, she was the most trending story of the month.
‘Wow Rhea, what a response; I didn’t know our small video could do this’ said Myra
‘See I told you, this is the power of the internet’ said Rhea
‘Set aside, I need to talk to you about something’ said Rhea
‘Yes, tell me’
‘About that kiss that night, why did you do it?’ she asked
‘What do you mean, I felt like it so I did it’ she said
‘Please tell me’
‘Ok, I think you’re really nice and I really like you; we’ve been friends all our lives and I don’t want to ruin it by doing something stupid so please let’s just never talk about it’ said Myra trying to close the topic
‘Now pay attention to me, I also like you and I mean really like you, I realised this when you kissed me and I liked it. I wanted to do it again since that night, Myra I love you will you be with me?’ asked Rhea
‘Oh yes my darling, I love you too and I want to be with you and you only’ said Myra and kissed her
