Tears welled in my eyes as I looked into his. There was sheer silence. I knew that I had screwed up this time. I knew things will never be the same again between us. In a fraction of second, I felt my whole world crashing as I saw him leave. "He wasn't gonna come back", I thought. He did not turn to check if I am fine. "Why would he?".
I froze at my place as he disappeared from my sight. I couldn't come out of the shock that he is gone. I felt as if someone had pierced my heart with a sharp object and left a permanent hole in it. The hole seemed to deepen with every passing second. I walked for a good long distance lost in thoughts of my own. Every moment we'd spent together was still clear in my head. Out first meet, our first date, our first kiss...
Our first meeting was a very brief one. It wasn't love at first sight for him neither for me. Infact I din't remember even seeing him but he did. He'd come for an interview at the company I was working for. I was attending a phone call while he was sitting in the sofa, waiting for his turn and trying to pass time by looking around. It was a direct scene from a Hindi movie. I had my hair open (like always) so I tucked my hair behind my ear to prevent it from falling on my face turning to his side. We had an eye contact (which I could never recall) which lasted just for few seconds. That was our first meeting. And then as the days went by, we became friends and much more after a while.
But today it was different. I was alone. I was walking the streets all alone seeing him in my head but my moist eyes weren't letting a clear view of him. I hated that. I went home and sat in my room watching a slideshow of his pictures on my laptop, listening to "What hurts the most" by Rascal Flatts, playing it again and again. My Mom knocked my room but I din't wanted anyone to disturb my sad moment so I din't wanted to open the door. I heard someone banging the door again and knew it was my Mom again. But, I was wrong. It was him!
I opened the door and let him in. He looked miserable and in a deeper agony than I was. His eyes were red and he din't smile. We stared at each other without speaking losing track of time. The only sound that I heard was that of our breathing. He finally came close to me, took my hands in his and said just three words which were enough to break all silence between us. He said, "I need you". That's it! I lost control! I hugged him and cried like a small baby letting all of those mis-understandings flow through my tears! :)
