Today was a different day he thought as he looked at his watch..00:00. It showed..The cool breze blew by again, but he widened his eyes in surprise as Priya's aroma filled the air.. He turned around.. His eyes searching for her..It was like an enwril that surrounded him.. His eyes fell on the hand rail of the wooden bridge of the gallery.. There were candles half burnt flickering with the wind.. He walked along the wooden planks bare foot.. The texture of the wood beneath his feet felt different.. He put his hands oin his Kurtha pocket and walked with a smile.. He looked ahead.. He saw the wooden house.. There was lush green everywhere around.. Huge trees swallowing the area.. The rock contour of the hill behind the house and the small stream of water to the right comming down the rock hill.. He smiled.. He came to the end of the wooden bridge and stepped on stone pavement.. A chill ran through his body as the stone was cold.. He walked along as he remembered the first time he had stepped on the marble flooring in Priya's house.. The lush green mexican grass that invaded through the spaces between the stone pavements gave a tinglish tickle to his feet.. And he smiled.. The dew drops on the grass wet his feet.. He was translated to a different world.. As he approached the house.. It had stairs that led to a portico.. And a beautiful simple door.. He walked up the stairs and touched the bronze door knob.. It was cold.. He smiled.. The door clicked open to his surprise.. He pulled in his suitcase and closed the door behind him...
The darkness suddenly dawned upon him.. It was pitch dark.. His heart felt lost again.. There was pain.. Sorrow.. There was a sense of solitude.. He let go of his suit case.. He wanted to sit down.. He walked towards something that looked like a sofa.. It was too dark to figure what was around him.. But yes there was a strange feeling that someone was guiding him.. His legs touched the teapoy.. He put his hands forward and touched the sofa.. He moved and sat down.. He felt empty.. He remembered her words..
Ram, Mein zaroor aaungi jab aap apne aap ko maauf kardenge.. Tab.. You left me with no choice.. He shut his eyes.. And all he coud see is her moist eyes.. She never said anything more.. He knew he had wronged her.. He burried his face in his palms.. His heart ached of umptiness.. His head hurt.. He let out a sigh...
Just then his phone rang..
He tok his phone and looked at the display.. Vikrams name flashed.. He picked it up..
Vik: Arre Ram tu pohunchgaya na?
Ram: Haan.. Closing his eyes.. Itni Raath ko phone kiya.. Kuch kehena tha?
Vik: Arre kuch nahi.. Actually.. Koi aur rehene waale the waha.. Pata nahi ab kya hua.. Anyway.. Tum khud dekhlena.. Aur kaam mein sambhaalunga.. Bye..
Ram: Arre kaun.. Before he could say anything the phone beeped..
Ram was lost.. He had no idea what Vikram had said.. He was annoyed that he had to deal with someone who would stay here.. He thought to himself.. Arre mere Priya ke ghae mein koi aur koi kaise.. Possesiveness empowered his mind.. There was anger frustration and pain.. He sat in silence..
His head hurt bad.. He wished for all the pain to go away.. There was a click of the door knob..
