A TALE OF LOVE (LOVE – MONEY –TIME)
THIS POST HAD WON AN INDI-BLOGGER SURPRISE PRIZE - Surf excel matic contest
A year back:
“Hey Swati save it I will come early today and will listen to you whole day.”
“But Rahul I have been trying to tell you now for past six months and you never had time to lend your ears.”
Here we go again! “Swati you know I am busy. This new project and the new company proposal are coming up nicely. Now it is my run and my time to grab the golden egg. Once this company is settled we have achieved Swati. Please understand.
“For whom you are running this much? What you want to prove? Which race you are trying to win Rahul?”
“Oh Rahul seriously??? I believe you have gone nuts. You are living for excess.”
I slammed the door and walked away. The day was hectic. The new project –new proposal and hell yeah finally everything is done and settled. My new company is going to be born very soon.
I pulled in my car, oh yeah Swati god if only I had two extra hours a day!!! I took the mobile and saw 35 missed calls.
Oh god what’s on her armory today? I searched for her spot outs dine- dress –every single thing is closed. Don't desert me gods I have to convince her. I drove up the road and parked the car.
I rushed through the garden, and for the first time noticed its beauty. I shouted her for wasting time meddling with the stupid garden but now these flowers blooming with colors never known to me before filled even the late evening night with colors.
I plucked in some flowers and went in keeping a sorry face. I searched her everywhere but she was nowhere to be found. Where she is at this time of night? I took out my mobile and dialed her she didn’t respond. Maybe she is angry. I rushed out to the beach and there she was lying down –lying down in her own pool of blood. I picked her up. She is breathing. She is alive.
If only I had 2 extra hours?
ONE YEAR BACK.
A life of machines is what they lived. In this busty world where everything seems to be show off.
Every one runs to win a race. Swati walked thinking of taking those pills but then her beautiful little baby growing in her made her throw those pills away…. She took the phone and dialed him a few more times but as usual he didn’t care to pick.
She didn’t watch that stone lying down and tripped down only to be hit badly in her head and she lost her consciousness and baby there.
She lost her conscious - only never to be regained.)
Rahul hugged her tight and walked with her back in the lonely beach.
the Setting sun kissed his feat telling him goodbye for the day.
he smiled and kissed her, now i know what is important.
"I will never leave you alone my dear"
