The window blinked in orange,he pinged "You sound so down! biiig time !! what's the matter ?"
Already tired from everything happening around me, i just said "Nothing much"
"Cmon, you can tell me.. you share everything with me.."
"I don't know dear.Just feeling something amiss"
"Cheer up gal,sad tones don't suit you"
"Yeah, I will be fine soon.. Ok! gotta go now."
"Bye babes,love ya!"
"same here" and i logged off, but the mood was still same.
As i sat listening to few sad numbers on my Ipod,I wanted to go out of the gloomy walls that surrounded me. Luckily you agreed to meet for a drink. The random conversation flowed as smooth as the drinks down our throat and soon i smiled, the smile giving way to laughter and the day looked so much better.
I pinged him first thing as soon as i was back home and he was so pleased to see the smiles back in the chat.But what i realized that evening was that virtual friends can never replace the real ones ! One should cherish both of them equally.
