Terrace

A puff of smoke is distilled in the distinct dark night sky,Srinanda’s hair glistened with the moon,her brow twitched as her cellphone flashed with a number.She looked straight into nowhere from her Terrance,her mind twisted with the thought of Avilash.
‘It’s not possible for me to come this week,work pressure has been tremendous.
Sorry baby,
Next time pakka,I will be there’
She wanted to shout at him,quarrel with him,but strangely she felt a profound melancholy than anger.
She lifted her head from the blazing white screen and her deplorable eye’s tried to focus on a distant bright star,maybe a vauge attempt to find the cheerful moments out of the empty relationship that they are now living.
‘Avi calling’
She lit up one cigarette more as she held the phone with her hand,
‘Yeah’
‘Is it too soon to say sorry,cause I love you more than enough you baby’
Srinanda sighed and groaned with annoyance.
‘A lame poetry and a lame apology is all you have these days’
‘You know how busy I have been these days Sri,please try to understand.’
‘Even sacrifice,understanding has a limitation’
She inhaled the cool night air for a second,for to manage the boundless tears is sometimes a hard task.

‘But today was our fifth anniversary,’her voice sounded almost like a murmur.

‘Oh shit!’

‘Yeah,you seriously need to bring the moon down for an apology.’

‘Babe,I am sorry.’

‘I am sorry Avi,I am tired of pretending that we have love.’

‘we are in love,and very much in love Sri.’

‘I don’t know.I wish I had known what had happened with all the love we had.’

‘Avi,when we were in college,roaming around the city,hanging out with friends,going to dates on a small cafe,reading in the library and sharing the same umbrella in rainy days and restraining our laughter in the boring classes,eating from the same plate and tasting each other’s foods,we were always short on money then.But I had you.Now we are stable and settled in life and enough money to squander.’

‘Yet,it is only your memories that takes place of that love.’

‘Sri,our lives are not going to stay the same forever.We grow up and change.Accept this.But love is always the same.’

‘It isn’t Avi,’ her voice grew thicker and she hung up the phone.

A splash of tears were now resting on that beautiful face.

Her hands rested on her chin,and she put on the headphone and a message popped out in her phone.

‘five audio’s from abhi’

‘Sri,these are the five songs that I really like and send me the songs you like.Are you a potterhead?Do you love golgoppa?

Are you a book nerd like me?

will be waiting for your call.’

(p.s=Let’s start falling in love again sri,and I am pretty sure that my flirting skills are not dead yet)

One star brightly shined among others in the vast darkish galaxy,she smiled a little,and a more and then as vivid as the moon,

somewhere the same moon may be looking at her lover,

Her smile spread as the moon spills its bright aura over the world and beyond.
