The tight sleeper Keya, woke up for couple of times after mid-night to check phone, to look for Ankur’s message but there was none. Finally, at the dawn, she could not control.
Keya : Good morning 🙂. Had been waiting for your message since last night but you must be busy. Hope you are sleeping well now.
Although at heart, she so wanted Ankur to not be sleeping and instead responds to her message immediately. But it did not happen.
She tried to sleep but could not. It was only 5 am and due to weekend, there was no urgency for anything. Suddenly she felt a hand on her waist. Before she could react or try to react, Nimit was kissing her all over. Keya felt strange but that’s how it had been since years. There was no foreplay or verbal communication, which could help her in getting mentally ready. Nimit started kissing her earlobes without caring for her response and she stayed static. Nimit’s hands were on her body and her heart was somewhere else. She was eager to listen to that special notification but today, someone had decided to make her wait, a long wait. By the time Nimit was into her, keya was completely irritated. She so wanted to run away but kept mum and silently participated with a hope to finish it as soon as possible. Finally, Nimit was done. He kissed her lips and whispered “I Love You” in her ear before falling asleep again and without caring for Keya’s status. Yes, most of the time, most of the males do not understand it but the most important part of any intercourse is to make sure that both participants feel the intimacy because its not a single player game.
Keya, as usual, was used to with this “weekend” routine. She walked out of bed and cleaned herself.
A hot cup of coffee and a cold breeze in fresh morning helped her in being at peace. But as they say, when you think you are settled, life throws surprises and a surprise was on the way for Keya.
She heard that special notification and immediately opened the chat log…
Ankur : Good morning.
There was no smile and Keya could sense an odd feeling.
Keya : Hey, slept well?? 🙂
Keya intentionally appended smile.
Ankur: Yes and No.
Keya started getting impatient. She was still coming out from “weekend” routine and Ankur was not ready to talk clearly.
Keya : Ankur, everything OK?
Ankur : Does it matter to you?
Keya : How do you mean? If it would not have mattered, why I would have asked?
Ankur : I don’t think you have even time to think about us.
Now Keya was irritated with confusion.
Keya : Why are you saying so? I have been waiting for your response since last night. I thought, it was you, who was busy.
Ankur : And therefore you too got busy?
Keya : How do you mean? Where did I get busy?
Ankur : Keya, I do not want to stretch this.
This sentence, whenever used, proved to be effective. Keya was curious, confused and annoyed now.
What he does not want to stretch? She spoke silently.
Keya : Please tell me, whats bothering you?
Ankur : Nothing keya. I thought you will be available to meet over weekend and we will have good time chatting.
So he wants to meet again only within 12 hours of first meeting. Keya thought to herself. She thought about her weekend schedule and she could not see any chance for her to sneak out for an hour even.
Keya : Sorry Ankur. As Nimit will be home for whole weekend, it would be difficult for me to sneak out.
Ankur : See, I told you….
Keya : But I am available for chatting on phone.
Ankur : Keya, I don’t want options.
Keya was taken aback with that response. What he was upto?
Keya : What are you talking?
Ankur : Nothing. You just enjoy new movie and family function with your family.
Keya could not trust her eyes. Ankur had sent that response.
Keya : Ankur, I would have loved to meet you over weekend but not sure how to sneak out.
Ankur : keya, those who want to do something, will find a way out but I know, you love your family and time with family.
Now, keya’s head was spinning. What he was upto? Why he was talking all this?
Keya : It has nothing to do with my love for family. I don’t think even you would prefer to go out alone while family is available over weekend.
Ankur : Keya, I can do it and that’s why I proposed and was looking forward to spend my time with you.
Already guilty, Keya was more confused to handle this.
Keya : Sorry Ankur but I really do not see any opportunity for me to sneak out.
Ankur : Sure Keya. I can understand it. I am secondary.
Keya read it for multiple times. Just 48 hours of love acclamation and Ankur was blaming her to be not available. But you know what? In this kind of situation, when you are successful in making someone feel guilty, you have achieved your goal and Ankur did same thing.
Keya : Ankur, please give me sometime and let me see, if I can do something.
Ankur : Keya, I am not looking forward to meeting anymore. Please continue with your weekend routine.
That “weekend routine” word bunch refreshed the morning experience for Keya. She deep breathed.
Keya : Please don’t say that. I promise, I will try my best.
Ankur read the message but did not respond and of course, that was enough to push Keya to make meeting happen.
She thought of couple of strong excuses, which she can use to sneak out. But she did not want to confirm with Ankur before she could get permission from Nimit. She waited for Nimit to wake up.
On breakfast table, she asked Nimit if she can go and meet her old school friend, who has came back from Australia for few days. Nimit was ok with it. There was no long discussion on it and Nimit did not care even to ask her friend’s name. Although Keya was prepared with details like name and so called friend’s whereabouts.
She immediately sent a message to Ankur.
Keya : Ankur, can we meet today?
Ankur : I can see that. You movie plan must have been canceled and that is why you are filling up the space.
That response irritated Keya. Here, she was trying her best to sneak out and Ankur thought she was using him as an option.
Keya : Well, I tried my best to sneak out. Worked on an excuse, made it happen but I think you are taking all my efforts in wrong manner. Let’s cancel it. We will meet someday when you are in your right mind.
That made Ankur furious.
Ankur : Keya, I am in my right mind. When you said no and suddenly within couple of hours, your are coming up with a proposal to meet, who will believe you?
Keya : OK Ankur, don’t believe me. Thanks!!
She had tears.
Yes, females are just like that and why not? When someone unknown about your situation doubts your intentions, you cannot hold it back.
She kept thinking about first meeting with Ankur and how he had encouraged her for pursuing her hobbies. Day passed by in thoughts and long wait for messages but it did not happen. One more sleepless night was there for Keya but it was painful. No communication. That silence was killer but both of them had their ego. The day, expected to be fun day, turned into unfortunate day.
Next morning, when Keya woke up and checked her phone as first thing, she saw the message.
Ankur : Sorry Keya. Let’s meet. @12:30 pm? Beans café, at the ground floor of Hotel Platinum?
Keya : Will see. Will try.
Of course, she was going because that fire was equally stinging at both ends. But Keya was hurt and sad the way Ankur commented on her intentions. Before Nimit could attack her for another “weekend routine”, Keya walked out of bed and with hot coffee in hand she started daydreaming about the meeting with her love.
And phone beeped.
Ankur : I love you Keya.
She smiled and responded…
Keya : Love you too.
One more sunny day after cloudy weather for almost 36 hours.
But what do you think? That weekend meeting after a clash would have been limited till meeting only?
What these experienced lovers, who are so used to with “weekend routine” in their respective real life do when they meet?
Stay tuned J
