6th Nov 2009
It was her Birthday. I wanted to surprise her. So, I just got some candles and arranged it on the 1st floor of my house, in a small room which had lot of shelves. The candles were everywhere. And chosen her favorite song so that it would be romantic. When she came, her face was glowing more than it usually did, fair than usual she had become thin, since she was going to gym. I said “I am not going to compare you with the moon because moon has scars etc is an old line, in one line if I have to describe you I would say you are the most beautiful girl in this planet, in one WORD if I had to say it would be “PURE””. She smiled at me. She said “thanks a lot, this is the best thing anyone has ever done for me, you are the best.” saying this she held my hand and I gave her a silver chain. I hugged her and looked into her eyes. I felt something was wrong. I just knew it.
Amit: Hey! You stil like him don’t you
Jyoti: please its my Birthday and after this beautiful thing why are you at it again?
Amit: if you thought it was beautiful then you wouldn’t be so dull. If you don’t like me just say so.
Jyoti: oh come on, you know I loved it please don’t be angry. That anger doesn’t go well with your face,
Amit: okay m sorry too. By the way I have got us tickets for tomorrow. Morning movie then afternoon rain tree then at night a really nice play.
Jyoti: m sorry Amit I can’t make it. I told you a cousin of mine is getting married. I need to go home.
Amit: Go day after tomorrow Na, please stay for tomorrow I made all the arrangements.
Jyoti: sorry dr cant. I skipped today cos I know I have the best guy in the world.
Amit: please please tomorrow please.
Jyoti: sorry pleaase understand.
Amit: so you like ur cousin more than me? Fine!!
Jyoti: oh come on you know that’s not true
Amit: then stay and prove it
Jyoti: stop it, now
Amit: why should I? You don’t like me anymore.
AFTER SOMETIME ………………….
Jyoti: That’s it I cannot take any more of your ignorance. This is no longer a relationship. It’s always about you and you just seem to be interested about yourself. It’s as if you never wanted me here. And it’s me who is always pushing things and taking initiatives to keep this relationship healthy. That’s it, I quit, FOR GOOD!
Amit: Fine I am not dying for you, one day you will die for me and then you will know.
