It was again a very hard night to pass for her.Each night she would try to sleep in these 11 days.But around middle of the night she used to be drenched in sweat and sat up bringing her knees close to her chest and holding them tight with both her hands clasped.He was not here these days.She didn't dream but she believed intuitions are strong enough of something not going to be good.
They had last met some 20 days ago.They rarely met but they used to talk with each other over the phone.He was not here,he had gone to his home where his mother,father and sibling resided.It was some celebration that they had of a festival she can't strike it up her mind.And she thought to herself what can it be?And how did i forget it?
She checked up her phone and saw the last number dialed, it was his.She read carefully 9-09-10 at 11:00pm.She switched it off and tried to sleep again.
It had been almost 11days that they didn't had a conversation,it was not intentionally but she didn't have any choice of contact rather.The next day she was strolling in the park in the evening and she thought of ringing him up,now that she had a choice of.She called him up and they had a brief conversation and she got to know that he had come back from his trip back to his place where he lived alone.
She came back home and then called him.She didn't knew what to say instead she chose to listen to him.He was going on telling about these 11 long days.She was thinking something else and not paying full attention to the thing being spoken.She then finally thought that she had to give it up before she was too late.She sighed and said in that very moment "Ah..there is something i want to say".
He replied " yes surely you can say it now".She was haunted by all the if's and but's but she had to overcome all to say it the last time or the first time and that she had to know now.Twirling up the wire around her fingers of the phone that she had called from..she said "I love you".
He was silent for a moment and replied something which was more of a reply to himself rather than her.She asked "what is your reply?" He started telling that what he felt about her and when did he need her and out of surprise the call was cut and the conversation was interrupted....
