Her Voice, is all that I could heard now. Sometime I feel like I am getting addicted to her. Days pass by and the nights crawl on, but I couldn’t cease to think about her voice. It’s strange we came to know each others name after a month.…..
Amit: So, what’s your name?
Liza: Hmmm, everyone calls me Liza!, so I think you can call me that.
Amit: Hi Liza, I am Amit, it’s nice meeting you.
Liza: Meeting on the phone, huh? she giggled
I made her laugh, it just made my day.
We have been talking for a month, it’s strange to talk to a stranger, she said.
It’s strange, haa I laughed.
We continued to talk about all the useless things. The calls which were once made twice a week turned into once a day. But I soon started to feel that this was something more. I was getting attached to her. My mind seemed to be possessed by her voice all the time. All I cared was that I talk to her.
Rahul: What are you doing man?
Amit: Huh I was lost in the conversation I just had.
Rahul: Man… why are wasting ur time on this girl, what’s her name nway?
Rahul: What? Seriously Liza!! What kind of name is this?
Amit: No, it’s Liza!!
Rahul: Listen to me, don’t be so much attached to this Liza! Or whatever
Amit: I think I like her…..
Rahul: What? You are kidding!!
Amit: No, call it infatuation, call it love, I don’t care.
Rahul: How could you, I mean…. You haven’t even seen her
Amit: So what?
Rahul: So what? So what!! She might be, you know, fat or ugly. Maybe she is married and older than you.
Amit: “I love her.”
Rahul: You are insane, I don’t know what else to say.
But I knew that Rahul won’t understand, nobody will. My heart has spoken for itself that it’s not an illusion and my feelings for her are true. I thought it was time to finally meet her.
That afternoon, I called her again.
Amit: Hey! I hav something to say.
God, I was nervous! I was sweating, my throat was sand dry and my voice stammered. I didn’t remember a time when I was so tensed.
Amit: Well! I was thinking, uh… we have been talking for so long.
Liza: Yes, that’s true.
Amit: Well I was think if we could meet sometime, u know.., for a coffee or something.
For an instant I wished the call disconnects. Sometimes in your life, a two second pause seems to stretch for so long that you start to think maybe your life has come to a halt. But all you need to regain control is a…
Liza: Yes…. When
“Oh God, thank you” I said to myself.
Amit: Great, I will tell you the place and time…..
Liza: Ok, no problem.
We talked for another fifteen minutes, but I sensed, somewhere, that enthusiasm was missing in her. She replied and talked all the time normally but I was so used to her irrepressible voice, that I knew something was up. I refrained myself from asking her, thinking maybe it would become too personal.
