C-CHINMAYA ie ME
(One night, as usual, MP is expecting C’s call. For some reason, they haven’t spoken in a long time as it was due to MP’s fault. MP has been praying hard that some day, he calls and she can apologise to him..Its almost 12.30 AM IST and she is thinking to sleep early when the phone rings suddenly)
MP-Come on C, I know its you…say something naa…Iam sorry as I realised my mistake..
C-(finally after few minutes..)..143 my sweets..missed me all these days?
MP-Thought you had something new to say!..143 lots and actually was enjoying without you (and begins to laugh)
C-Is it?..go ahead..i wont call or talk to you then!
MP-Come on C..dont do this to me..what kept you from not calling me these many days?
C-Hmmm.wanted to see how its to be without you or hearing from you!..anyways, got news for you!!
MP-Is IT?..Whats the news you got for me now?
C-I WILL TELL YOU LATER!!
MP-C, I will kill you for sure..
C-How will you?..I may never come in front of you if you want to do that to me!
MP-Hmmm..thats also there!..Anyways,please tell me..Dont make me so anxious now..You know I don’t like that!
C-Ok..Here is the news..Iam back in India in another 10 days time!
MP- WOW!!..You aren’t kidding right!???
C-haila!!..what makes you think that I would call you so late to tell you this news??..thats because I confirmed the news with the HR and thought to tell you the news first and then to appa-amma!
MP- Iam so happy for you C..atleast the dream, I’ve been seeing all this while, will turn into reality..You know what I’ll do when I see you at the airport??
C-Am curious now!..tell me naa..so that am prepared!
MP-I’ll hold you in my arms and give you a nice, tight hug to welcome you!
C-And what if you break my bones?
MP-My love will nurse you back gradually!..Hope you have put on weight by now!!..I am curious what you’ll do to me!
C-Hmmm,let me think..First, I’ll hold your hand..
MP- And then..???
C-Wait for my poem..I’ll make sure that it’s the first mail that you’ll read in the morning!!
MP- Its already morning here C..Anyways, you’ve made my day darling..Lots of love from me to you!!
C-Same to you my sweetest of the sweets!!..Take care and keep waiting for me!!..I’ll just come back for you…
(Silence prevails for some time…)
C-What happened dear??..Are you lost my MP??
MP-Hmmm…for once, I thought I dedicate a song for you!!..i was looking it up all this while just to make you listen to it..here it comes just for you my love..
(Song in the background…)
MP-Got my message?..am sleeping off now..read it as well and you’ll know what else in my mind darling..loads of love and good bye for now..
(C beams a smile as he reads MP’s message which says- “come back plz lets giv each other another chance to move fwd hand in hand till any of us can walk.now that we knw wat each thinks about d future,lets plan happy moments wen u wil b here .”)
