The Night was finally here!
The Night she was waiting for some weeks and thousand hours.
The Night where she wanted to end all the confusions and live all her enthusiasms- The night which she thought was all she wanted.
He has been here for a few months but hardly been free enough to manage time. They have been one soul for some years but then things haven’t been too rosy since the starting of the year. They didn’t meet often but yet managed an oodles of talk and time for each other. She has never been so unconditionally in love before. He was his everything now and she felt life was just about this.
He was going home for some months and he had promised as always he will meet her up before leaving. She felt that all was well in their bliss!
She was dressed in her best attire! He loved her in a saree so what a better occasion to wear it! She wore a beautiful Red saree with black borders and coupled it with the best of jewels. She looked like the traditional Indian Bride and she knew he will love her for it.
It was 7 in the evening. He called up!
“Hey!” said he
“Heya , Where r u?” was the inquisitive she
“Just got so amazing busy ,baby! I m still juggling stuffs! I will pick u up by 8! Hope it would be fine for u ?” said the ever busy he!
“You and your works. Gosh!”, said the pissed she again
“Jaan you know how tough is it for me to manage time 1 day before I leave and u still….neways I will come na” was all he could say convincing
“Ok baba…I m waiting come soon” said she irritably
“Okie…catch u soon …take care” said he
“Take care” said the impatient she
And there went down the cell
She was so used to waiting for him forever. That’s how he was always but still she was not used to the wait!
And here she sat still reminiscing of all the moments spend in those 4 years of togetherness….those years of laughter….those moments of cries and those moments of LOVE.
And before she realized it was already 8 and the cell rang
“Hey where r u?” said the impatient he
“I m very much in my room. Have u reached?” was all she could say excitedly
“Yups I m outside, come soon!” said the impatient he
“Okie I m coming” said the overexcited she
And she kept the phone and ran to the door. There he was outside sitting on his bike.
She hugged him and sat behind!
She always loved riding behind his bike more than anything. And besides it was so comfortable with him as she had never to think what way is suitable to sit or hold like with others. Often she used to just sleep off to glory with him riding!
So as she enjoyed the moments, they reached his place and entered it blooming in love
“Gosh what a tiring day….”was his reaction as he entered!
She just stared and stared at him with love
He noticed and said “So saree and all …the Gorgeous You” with a wicked smile
“Hehehehehh”, giggled she
And then they hugged and kissed in the sensuousness of the moment
Now came the moment of talks, memories and……..
“So Mr. busy bee never has time to meet to talk or anything right” said she trying to converse
“Shut up u know how busy I have been still I do somehow manage time” said he with a pissed look
“Hahaha….u better do and u better do so even after going home! U will have to understand and….” Said she fearing the distance
“Just stop it! I thought I will be relaxed after I met u and u start lecturing me…u know I have crucial time ahead so just understand”, said the irritated him
“What understand...i m not at all demanding and yet you…u can at least stay more in touch and …” was the pissed she
“Now stop acting like Kimi”, said the further pissed he
“What the hell …..Was all she could say?” was all that a shocked she could say
Kim was his Fiancé and she knew everything about it. He got engaged a few months back due to family pressures even though he loved her. He had no options due to social divides between them. But then it was more of a official contract and notin more was involved. He always kept convincing her he will find ways to end this engagement and that was keeping her going…..But this comparison kept her going!
“Sorry baby. U know how official it is between Kimi and me …I love u but she irritates me to I just said it ….sorry na …u know I love you” …said he in order to convince her
Before she could say more……they lost themselves in those moment of ecstasy
The Slumber was broken by a ring on his phone….he went out to take it!
She knew it was Kimi and today she realized it was somehow ending.
After he came in he was a different man
He sat with a sullen look
“What?” was all she could react with.
“I can’t do this…I have never double timed …I can’t do this ….i just cant”, said the tensed he
“U want to break up?” said the worried she
“No….this is wrong…I just made love to her yesterday and now”,said he without giving heed to what she said
The glass broke thousands pieces and she had no words
“You made love?” was all she could say
“It just happened I mean”, was all he had to say
“Gosh I never expected this to end this way” and before she could say more tears trickled down her cheeks ……
She just got up and hugged him so tightly that no one else can…….she knew this was the last time she was ever hugging him …
Tears couldn’t stop. She knew it was over and so was she
“Drop me back “, was all she could say
“Baby u can stay”, said he in order to make things well
“No I don’t want to just drop me back”, said the adamant she
“We will obviously be in touch its just that…” was the ever convincing he
“Its just that I cant ever hug u this way or maybe even kiss u”, said the heartbroken she!
And then she just kissed his lips and hugged him to cry her heart out
“Ya that wouldn’t happen but trust me we could be best of friends” was the ever more convincing he
“Whatever” saying this she picked up her purse
Realizing her adamancy he picked his bike keys and went down
All through the bike journey she hated herself
The moment came and went and her destination came soon and she had to say her final goodbye!
She hugged him one last time and cried to her content
He shake hands and wanted to say something but before he knew she turned back
She was back to the same room but she was not the same she.
She just lied alone in her room facing the roof with the Numbness that will be her only companion for ages to come
It was over and so was she.
The numbness was her companions for a long time ….she didn’t feel anything any longer .The cheating has made her realize the fakeness and she hated herself for it .
He reached back home and tried calling her often but she had made up her mind and she knew it was over. Now no effort and nothing can ever change. Life has ended for her and so did his duration in her life. She had Loved him too much to realize ! He had became her priority even though she was just an option in his life and that was the responsible for this new SHE
