(have not thought of it just yet) Incomplete

As the clock ticked at 7:02 P.M, I finally completed my project report. Then, I instantly locked my PC, put on my bag, picked up my cell phone, and left the office. Next, I got into my car and started scrolling down my favourite songs’ playlist, which spiced my already jolly mood.

Suddenly, a message popped up, lowering the volume of my music. Yea, definitely it was hers. It read, “Are you ready with my gift?” It’s 15th June today, meaning tomorrow is my birthday. So, she wants a gift. As per our deal of sharing everything 50 – 50, she wants me to gift her even on my birthday too. But, of course, gifts don’t mean she wants that fancy stuff. Sometimes, a peck on her cheeks is enough, or even sometimes, just listening to her useless gossip is enough. So, to her great ecstasy, I’m gifting her with a long night drive this time.

The plan seemed great, but the same couldn’t be said of the weather. A heavy dark cloud hovering around with occasional lightning is threatening a heavy shower. But still, I intended to proceed with the plan. “Babee, get yourself ready; I’m coming to pick you up,” I texted her back.

It’s around a 15 km drive to her home from my office. Just as I approached her home, I could see a girl—a girl in her early 20s and prime in her beauty. Milky white face with dazzling brown eyes, cherry lips, and a pointed chin. A long, wavy, golden-brown hair falling perfectly over her chest. Yea, of course, it’s her. She looked gorgeous and charming, just like a full moon. Despite looking at her a million times, I still want to see her over and over again. It is possibly the way she’s put together; I have always fallen for her beauty ever since we met three years ago.

I stopped the car near her and slid the window. A honey-sweet voice came from outside. “Babee, why are you late?” Late? It took me by surprise, and I wasn’t late; I just texted her just over 10 mins ago. However, I was pretty amazed to see her get ready this early. Did you expect me to pick you up even before I texted you? I asked. “Yea,” she blushed while opening the door and occupying her spot, a front seat.

We are heading towards the tallest hill in the valley for our long night drive, The Manung Hill. It is famous for its mesmerizing bird’s eye view of surrounding towns and valleys. The hill has been on the rise in popular tourist destinations since the tunnel construction started over a couple of years ago. It’s great cause I’m one of the engineers involved in this tunnel project. It indeed is a risk to go through an incomplete tunnel to the hill in this deteriorating weather at night. At this age, we often tend to take risks, and this state is no different either.

Through the muddy road with drizzling weather, we reached the top at around 11:40. Then, fittingly it stopped raining. The sky was clear with the full moon. The valley looked astonishing from the top. Sparkling stars like lights shining on the valley was very captivating. Even At this midnight, the city seemed to be still awake; perhaps the city too was madly in love with the moon. Just like I was with her. Under the gazing moonlight, we helped ourselves with a romantic kiss. Probably, the longest we ever had, and Damn, that felt good, really good.

To be continued…….

“Jonas, I think we should split up, I’m not happy with you anymore”, she said. I didn’t know that a person can die just by words, no poison, no gun, just words!!!! She further added; before, you used to take care of me and my Everything. Notice even small changes in me. You could feel me by just looking into my eyes. Even during the arguments, there was love attached. But lately, it’s not been that way; you have run after your career.

You have stopped even asking If I’m well. You’ve started to get annoyed even on minor arguments. You get agitated quickly. You didn’t even bother asking how my days were. Even more minor things you used to take care of me now have started to neglect. Did you know the day you put your hand on me saying I was late? That day was my birthday. You’ve changed Jonas. You have changed. I was numb.

I tried to convince her but failed each time. I tried to call her but was never received. I texted her to apologize and tried to persuade her, but she always replied “k”, “Hmmm”, “🙂”; the S.I. units of ignorance. Slowly, I realized that I was turning into the toxic person in her life.

Months passed by, but still, the bruise and scars were fresh. I realized that we need that touch from someone we love, almost as we need oxygen to breathe, but I couldn’t understand her touch until she left. Due to her loss, I was changing, changing for good. But, unfortunately, she will never get to see and feel the better version of me. It was a candle that burned so brightly and lasted so briefly.

The hope of reunion with her faded away as the days, months and years progressed. As everyone says, time changes Everything. I, too, got changed. Now, I no longer love her. But, what I do is care for her. In love, you tend to expect something back in return for Everything you do. But, in care, you don’t expect anything. You just want to give and give and give and don’t expect anything in return.

I was shell-shocked; it felt as though Everything around me turned mute. I picked up my car keys and left. I didn’t care to get ready or anything. All this way, I kept trying her number so that miraculously she would answer my call. And she confirmed to me she was absolutely fine and that it was a mistake on sishir’s side. But the voice on the other end of the phone kept saying that the mobile was switched off and to please try later. I began to sweat on a cool A.C. air.

I’m on my way Babee. Please wait for me. You will be fine, babee. Just hold on.

It’s said that when we most need something to be right at that moment, it will never be that way. The traffic was freaking bad, with a bus blocking the way; there was a massive block on the road. Some of the other ways, I finally reached the hospital, ran to the receptionist, asked her for the details, and rushed to the ward. From a distance, I could see Sishir, Subarna, and Aayush.

They were talking nervously to each other when Sishir saw me coming. Before I could speak something, Subarna held out his shoulders and took him gently backwards. My Eyes met Aayush, and he read out something through his eyes which he didn’t want to read. He moved his contact from Aayush and looked at Sishir, who nodded a no slowly to me. 

She was lying there wrapped in a white cloth, peacefully and pale, with her eyes closed tight. I stood there in a crowded room and the moment sunk in. She was dead. Actually dead. Right there next to me. Without knowing tomorrow, she had named her days on me. My dead partner. My dead future……

Heavy sobs filled the room. Her parents sat there, lifeless with tears rolling out their eyes with no expression on their faces. Her brother was beside his Mom and Dad, holding them tight and fighting back his tears; I looked at her beautiful, peaceful face.

I wanted to touch her and call her out, ask her to open her eyes and tell her to wake up, but I was just able to stand there looking at her and then turned back, letting him outside the home. I looked at the skies; it was a mix of darkness and the sun setting down with birds flying away somewhere distant. I looked back at my phone and read her last message.

1 P.M. ‘I am leaving from here. On my way to your place…Happy Birthday, Babee!!!!

I wish it were just a minor conflict like it used to be before. At least I could see her on Facebook, Viber, Mails, or on the way somewhere in the evening. She is quiet; there won’t be any childish taunt status, No interactions through D.P.s, last seen, or anything! She was gone, gone forever; I want to feel her, be with her, and say to her endlessly that I love her. I want to apologize to her for all that time when I hurt her, even when I didn’t mean to. Then, I banged my hand on the wall and put my head down, letting my tears roll out.

I looked at her and touched her cheeks; it felt so real but cold. With that, she felt the weight on her shoulder lighten down. I looked at her and leaned forward to kiss her. Her eyes were already closed tight, as if she was trying to absorb the kiss and savour it deep inside her lifeless heart. Then she opened her eyes and whispered, ‘I love you, Babee’ with a sad smile.

I want to see her…

“Her mom dad….” I asked.
“We informed them. They are downstairs. It was terrible to comfort them.”

Do u know who is the best couple in this world?
“Smile & Tears”
Rarely do they meet, but if they meet that will be the most gorgeous moment ever.. :’)

When I opened my eyes, I saw my mom beside me – Mom love better

Didn’t see her it felt real.

I have changed; I have changed for good but She will never get to see the better version of me.

Love – You expect something from her
Care – you don’t expect anything, you just wanna give and don’t expect anything from her

Realizing the consequences of being apart from her made me love her even more. The accident was a blessing in disguise for our love.

The first girlfriend, second girlfriend, and the third girlfriend and finally figuring out that you’re the problem.

Boys came, You nearly had your relative velocity zero, joked Subarna.

Simple, Love is every reason to fall apart.

Pointing at the Full Moon I said to her, I wish I could take you to the moon, but I can’t cause it’s already full.
