“Is it a date?”
“We will decide after meeting”
“No it’s a date”
“It’ll be very weird, we won’t talk & you’ll agree to that later”
“Doesn’t matter if you look half as pretty as you look in the pic”
“Okay,,sleep now,,,,see you tomorrow,,,good night”
The conversation ended but mere saying good night doesn’t guarantee a good night sleep and same was the case with Bhoomi & Aditya. It was a sleepless night for both of them,,,,so much was going on in their minds that if there would have been a device to measure that brain activity that would have exploded for sure.
To Aditya, Bhoomi seemed to be uninterested or she was pretending to be uninterested or she was scared but he was all excited about this meeting or date whatever it was going to be. And Bhoomi didn’t know how to react,,,to be happy,,,excited or nervous.
But one thing was sure,,,,they were both looking forward to meet each other ,,,,and the biggest reason was,,,,they had waited for a long time,,,,,,,,,,,waited for FIVE LONG YEARS.
Five years back when Bhoomi received a message on her cell,,she didn’t know what that message will lead to. It has been the times when everyone was a mobile freak,,,texting was in. Bhoomi had created a dating profile just for fun & the same day she got a message because of that dating profile she had created & since it was the first message she received so she accepted that.
Aditya,,too,,,had created a profile and through that profile he had approached many but only one replied.
Destiny played its part.
They started exchanging messages,,,,hell lot of messages,,,,discussing everything under this sky,,,,school,,,hobbies,,,interests,,,,favorites,,,,food,,,,everything and it became a routine. Then they started calling & it became a routine too. But when you are 18,,,,your interests keep on changing & you get fed up of things a way too easily so that was it,,,school ended & with it other things too.
New college,,,,,new friends and new excitement. Both of them got involved in their college lives totally forgetting about each other,,,,until the day when Bhoomi heard the name of his school from one of her classmates. And all of a sudden she remembered him again,,,the same evening she called up Aditya,,,and it started again,,, messages,, calls,,,some spice in life again.
But at 19,,,,old spices can’t attract your taste buds for long,,,it ended again.
No new spice,,,old college,,,,nothing exciting,,,,then came a brand new spice,,,, THE ORKUT.
New profiles,,,loaded with hell lot of cool information,,,,cool pics,,,,& cool everything.
Texting out,,,,orkuting in.
Again Bhoomi’s brain cells got activated when she saw Aditya’s orkut profile,,,,and with that started exchanging of scraps. It continued for a while but then at 20 also,,,,you don’t stick to one thing for that long.
Same old college,,,same old friends,,,same old books but then came a new book,,,,THE FACEBOOK.
New profiles,,,,new excitement,,,new life.
Aditya saw Bhoomi’s profile,,,this time,,,his brain calls got activated,,,and again “Hi-Hello” and things started.
21,,,,no no,,,no new excitement at 21,,,,at 21,,,,you start looking for peace of mind,,,,stability,,,these things no longer attracts you.
And that’s what was going with Bhoomi & Aditya. They needed some answers,,,,for the questions that were bothering them. They had known each other for the past 3 year but that was just a superficial kind of thing,,,now they started finding something common in them,,,they actually started having this philosophical discourse,,,started finding peace in these discussions,,,,started sharing their problems,,,,actually started understanding each other.
They had been together for 3 years but they were never this close. Something was different,,,something was changing.
Every little thing Bhoomi would tell Aditya & Aditya would listen to all the silly,,stupid & serious stuff she had to tell. Bhoomi became addicted to him and she knew it was now more than just a simple friendship. Though she was not sure about her feelings,,,,how could she be sure when she hadn’t met that guy in the first place,,,but still she told him about her feelings. Deep down,,,she was sure that he also liked her but when she told him,,,his response was not like anything she wanted to hear. He said he didn’t feel anything for her. Bhoomi thought she was being stupid,,,how could she have feelings for a guy whom she had never met and same was applicable to him also? One more chapter ended,,,their ways parted,,,,old everything but now she started loving the things around,,,,no new search for excitement,,,,as now she had a much awaited stable peaceful life.
Bhoomi got busy with her life,,,friends entering her life,,,friends leaving her life,,,,some crushes,,,some likings,,,some new purposals,,,but the search for excitement had ended a long ago,,,now all she was experiencing was a stable contended life.
But as they say,,,somethings never end…….!!!!!!!
22,,,,at 22 you start feeling that you have become matured,,,you start analyzing your life,,,things you have gained,,,things you have lost.
At 22 when Bhoomi was happy & contended with life,,,Aditya felt differently. Something missing in his life,,, ,,,something that was always there but somehow he lost it.
He discovered a new part of him,,,that was never there,,,,a part that longed for Bhoomi,,,,a part that missed Bhoomi,,,,a part that loved Bhoomi but there was other part too,,,a part that kept reminding him how could he love someone he had never met?
Aditya was not sure to disclose his feelings but atleast,,,he could start the friendship again.
One more message.
The first message that he sent five years back had no meaning to Bhoomi but this message carried new hopes,,,new dreams,,,,,,,, but she was scared,,,,scared of these hopes,,,these dreams. Things started again and then came the day of their fifth anniversary,,,fifth anniversary of an undefined relationship. Five long years,,,,,and they planned to meet.
A sleepless night &yet so many dreams.
The excitement that had vanished from their lives emerged again.
Their first meeting,,,first meeting after five years,,,,first meeting even though they lived in state,,,hence a very special day.
Bhoomi,,who never actually cared about her looks & dress,,,was confused what to wear,,,and same was with Aditya,,,, nervousness,,,excitement,,,,and thousand different undefined emotions they were experiencing.
A beautiful day & lots of hopes.
“Get two band-aids”
“You are late,,,by the way,,,why you need bandaids?”
“I’ll be there in 15 minutes,,,I’ll tell you then”
Aditya was waiting outside the mall,,,,when he saw,,,,a girl totally wrapped in pink approaching him.
Bhoomi was walking towards the mall,,,when she saw a guy on a bike gazing her.
He’s exactly like he looks in pics,,,,but why isn’t he smiling,,,oh god,,,he seems to be very serious kind of person in reality
She’s as pretty as she looks in pics,,,,should I say hello first?
“hi,,how are you?”
“You got band aids?”
“Ok I’ll be waiting for you inside come”
(Few minutes later)
“Why band aids?”
“I fell and injured my knee”
“well,,,that’s what I always do,,,now it’s your turn”
“yeah,,,that’s what you do always,,,so do that now also”
How can he expect me to talk when his voice is driving me crazy,,his voice is charming,,,more than it sounded on phone,,,,,I’m falling in love or wait I’m in love
Her eyes are so mesmerizing & so is her smile. Yes I’m in love
“Five long years & we met”
“ya five long years”
“I want to tell you something,,,,ummmm,,,,,should have told you before,,,,,,I wasn’t sure then,,,but now I’m”
“Actually,,,,,I ,,,,I,,,,,I love you,,,,I really do.”
She didn't responded but tears started rolling down her cheeks & he got the reply.
Time rather pasts quickly when you are actually enjoying it.
They continued talking for hours until they realized that it was time to go.
So much in their eyes,,,,so much in their hearts,,,,so much they had to tell but all they said was
And it ended,,,,,,wait,,,, it started actually ….. :P
