A year later, sharp at 12:00 am the door bell rang “TING TONG, TING TONG”
Meera who was busy attending the phone calls rushed and opened the door. To her daze, a middle-aged man was standing on the other side holding a Bouquet of Blossoming Red Roses, her favorite Ferraro Rocher chocolates and eye pleasing gifts.
Thunderstruck Meera was almost about to shout : “What Daaa….” Just then she gasped, collected all the stuff and hurried towards her room. For the next few minutes she kept on gazing all the gifts, she very well knew from where it had arrived. A drop of tear rolled down her eye when she murmured –
“The Best Surprise from the Best Person” ~ Rahul. His name from Meera’s lips created a beautiful echo in the void room.
Meera calmed herself and started hunting for her phone. While dialing his number, Meera thought : ‘A call after a year‘ (Although no calls were made in the entire year but Rahul’s number still was in her favorite contact list). Even before the ring could be heard, Rahul picked up the call (The most awaited phone call for Rahul).
And it was “Silence on both sides”
While Meera recovered some courage to say “Hi“, Rahul as always had already taken a move. The first 3 words he spoke were
“Happy Birthday Darling..!!“
The lovestruck word “DARLING” after a year made Meera blush. She finally spoke “Rahul, I am overwhelmed to see how perfectly you make my day so special. Each and every small effort of yours makes me feel so grateful. Thank you so much Rahul”
Rahul replied : “Meera, this is the day I was waiting for since a year”
The conversation then started and continued for hours and hours. They discussed about each and every bit of their past One year and also how much they missed each other. Loud laughter, tears of joy and constant chitchat continued from both the sides. Clock ticked 9:00 am and when the rays of sun lighted the city, they realized they were already late for their moronic office.
Just before they were about to hung the phone, Rahul asked : “Meera, can we please meet today evening, at the same coffee shop ?”
Meera (desperately wanted to meet him) : Within no seconds she replied “Yes Rahul, sharp at 7 pm”
With grin on their lips and blush on their cheeks, the phone call ended.
P.S : Some relations demand time..
