“Where shall we go today? “He asked casually like he always did.
She handed me 50rs…”save it…till you get your fees..” and she started walking..
A boy just 2 years elder to me being so independent and determined in life attracted me. It all started with curiosity. I started peeping through the window every morning to see him work. He carefully took the milk packets and placed them in the baskets tied to the front gates, the way he rolled the newspapers in a thin plastic covers before keeping them along with milk packets, how nicely he greeted the people who walked and jogged on the roads.
The watchman & the car driver standing at a distance came running but Param signaled them to stop. I didn’t care who saw or where I was, my mind was covered by the cloud of betrayal I felt. I only remember walking away from him and riding back home.
“You need a change, come” she pulled me up from my place.
The third message was a text message that read-
“How was the internals?” he asked me.
“Aditi told me…it was you who gave 300rs participation fees for that clg dance competition not Pritam..”, she smiled.
“Ah… that was the longest sentence you ever said” I told hugging him from behind.
Actually it was 8.30 am , I reached my office ,its my daily routine to call him after reaching office since from two years. But after our unfortunate breakup three months back , my routine has been changed just nothing but every second waiting for his message “I am sorry ,everything will be alright, I won’t leave you again”.This is not breakup at all, we just stop talking to other, that’s it but our thoughts ,love ,caring, trust ,hope …everything is just like before ..no more than before.
I smiled…held her little tight…
