Love is an Adventure : Part 7

Previous episodes of this story are available as Part-1 and grew to  part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5 and Part-6.

After being awake for the whole night and being in virtual company of each other, when both the love birds went back to real life, both had new rhythm in their moves. Ankur’s last message was still replaying in Keya’s mind…

Can’t wait to see you at school in the afternoon.

Keya kept thinking, what she will talk with Ankur when they both will meet at school pick-up gate. She kept smiling at herself for the silly love thoughts. When Nimit came on breakfast table, she happily joined him and that surprised Nimit. He tried to understand the unexpected return of charming smile on Keya’s face, he had seen before years. It made him happy and concerned at the same time but he decided to wait.

Once Nimit left, Keya wrapped up kitchen fast and took shower to get ready. After years, she used hair straightner and changed hair partition. She stared herself in mirror and smiled. That baby pink waist length, cold shoulder shirt paired with black jeans made her look beautiful with perfectly set hair. Not a big fan of accessories, she never tried anything from her best collection of earrings and watches. Today, she tried that long hanging diamond earrings and it made her round face look long and attractive. After spending almost 20 minutes in front of mirror, it was time to take selfie. For the first time in her life, she took almost 50 selfies, in different poses and while going through all of them, she was still not happy. And while the process of taking more selfies continued, phone buzzed with specific notification after almost 3 hours. She hurriedly opened the chat log to read message.  Ankur had sent his fresh smiling picture along with caption – for the new life (love)…

Not sure what to do, Keya kept looking at that smiling face. Ankur was not extraordinarily handsome but he had an appealing smile. But more than that killer smile of Ankur, she loved the caption. Being married to Nimit for more than 10 years now, she never heard that kind of romantic statement from him. Keya quickly took one more selfie and clicked on send without thinking much. And before she could put back the phone, that special sound was there again.  She quickly reached out.

Ankur : Beaaaaautiful……So want to kiss those rose petal lips (kiss) (kiss)

Keya was taken a back with the pace of things were moving on. Ankur’s message made her uncomfortable.

How is he looking at me? Did I send any wrong signal by accepting the love proposal? Is he physically attracted to me? Keya’s mind started working on a totally different track than she was onto just 10 minutes before. The more she thought, more uncomfortable she felt. Suddenly cloud of negative thoughts covered her mind.

Why should I get into all this?

Not sure what Ankur must have thought about me…

Aren’t I hurting Nimit by doing this?

Why am I risking my already settled life?

And while processing all those negative thoughts, when she realized that she was getting late to pick Vihan, she rushed. On the way, she decided to avoid Ankur and if possible, hide herself in crowd. She did not want to see Ankur anymore. Somewhere that physical affection Ankur showed, had impacted her mind. She heard her phone buzzing with special notifications from Ankur but was not interested in looking at it.

At school gate, she spotted Ankur and before he could see her, she started walking in opposite direction. But before she could reach Vihan, Ankur reached to her.

Hey Keya, Ankur was standing behind her with same killer smile.

Hi…she said while being aloof

Looking beautiful, Ankur tried to talk

Yeah, that’s what you are interested in, Keya stroke back

And before Ankur could understand anything, she left with Vihan. Ankur kept staring at her back and tried to understand what went wrong.

Death Wisdom

The most certain fact about life is the most uncertain thing in life….

But even after knowing that uncertain end of life, we want to take chance…

 

We want to live mediocre life (because we do not know how world looks from happiest peak)

We want to wait for perfect circumstances (does it ever happen, btw?)

We want to delay happiness (because that’s how we are nurtured)

We want to live as per society norms (yeah, because we are part of society)

We want to cheat the closest one (because trust is the cheapest affair on the earth)

 

And on final day, at last moment, breathing last atoms of oxygen….

 

We realize, we did not treat life the way we would have

We understand, life was a bigger gift than we thought about it

We recognize, how small we played on the biggest ground offered

 

And

 

Before we could rectify, we see ending around

Before we could hope, final moment is here

Before we could advise, heartbeats are slowing down

 

Bye bye world…

 

I wish, I could have lived the way I wanted

Free from defined rules

Away from invisible boundaries

Exempting myself from crowd

 

But

 I failed….

I missed…..

I just followed

 

Hope you will not make same mistake, I did

At least, after reading this….
