“ In last few years ,I have tried so hard to get over you…. yet one look had set back years of my effort. I can’t take it anymore.. anyway I am in hurry. “
“Hi!” She almost exclaimed!
“Hi!” He said stupefyingly.
“Two kids, You always wanted one.” – He said after looking two babies holding her hand.
She just smiled and tried to recall if she ever discussed it with him.
“Aaru and Aarav, is it?” He said again.
“How do you know?” She asked with her face full of surprise.
“Ufff…Still you have a bad memory. Don’t you remember your immediate neighbour’s kid’s name. You always wanted to steal one out of them.
“But you have stolen both two,This isn’t fair”- He further added in a naughty tone.
She shrugged her shoulder with a simple smile.
She looked here and there with the hope to have a look at his wife.
“Having a friend like you was tough for me to handle and that too for few years… I can’t make my life hell by having a girl for a lifetime.” He said and laughed a loud.
But She could feel his voice quivering with emotions. She looked up in his eyes.
“Memories of one are enough for me to live my remaining life.” He said in an easy tone while looking straight in her eyes.
She wanted to say ‘Don’t be so much emotional that it hurts you but she kept mum. She knew words could never heal him.’
“Come, come home.” She babbled while speaking as wasn’t sure that she wanted to take him home or not.
“ In last few years ,I have tried so hard to get over you…. yet one look had set back years of my effort. I can’t take it anymore.. anyway I am in hurry. Your kids are damn cute like you.” He said and left.
She stood there mesmerised with gentleness that is still alive in him.
“ Nice to see you after years.” She shouted in her highest pitch.
He turned back and waved his hand to say bye.
