Lonely to lovely to lonely...


Jennifer loved Jack with all her heart. She always had and will continue to till her last breath. Probably even after that. But there seems to be a gap between them. An empty barren hole, unexplained and uninvited. She cried through days and nights, hoping it would pass by. But it just grew, with things adding up. Maybe she loved him too much that she was imagining it. Maybe she was just too addicted to him that she was scared she would lose him. Or maybe not. She still loved him, and so did he. Then what happened?
He too loved her from the bottom of his heart, as he called her up one morning, and asked, "Can we meet up today in the evening?" She was longing for this one question, but maybe she loved him too much that she did not want to let go off her anger. Or maybe she just wanted him to know that she has been hurt very badly, and he owed her big time. Or maybe she was just craving for his love. But she agreed finally. They met at a hotel, both dressed in their worst. Praying for the best, and dreaming of the worst. She kept telling, or maybe reminding herself, that he loved her, no matter what. And no girl could grab him away from her. Now she knew why she had the new nightmares of being lonely.
They ordered the minimal food, just to keep the waiters away. She ignored his eyes, scared of tearing up her filled heart. He kept staring at her, lost in her gaze. He showed her his new 'friend's' photo in her phone. She felt it was the end of the world, and for the first time questioned his doing. He showed her another 'friend's' photo, and she asked him if they could leave. He caught her hand, as she stood up, looked at her eyes and said "I love you, and you mean everything to me". Tears rolled down her eyes. Maybe he couldn't see them, because he continued to dig out her thoughts from her eyes. He asked her if she wanted to go for a walk. She agreed. They walked, holding hands. She felt her heart back in place. Until, one of his friend called up asking him to be back home immediately.
After a million apologies, he left her in the cold, with only her teeth chattering. She walked back home, tears rolling down her cheeks. And this time she did not stop them. She let them flow, reminding herself he still loved her more than his life.

Beautifully written and the thought he was digging in the eyes so he couldn't see the tears, marvelous.

Isn't there a contradiction here?
He said..he loved her and she means everything to him and then leaves her in cold. May be I should not try to find reason in this...or may be..this was the contradiction you wanted to show. :)

deepthi i have the same question as kunal, it gives an impression girl over-reacted :-S

Deepthi said...

Well maybe she is, maybe she isn't. You can choose :D

Very well written, but I couldn't understand why he left her in teh lurch, and also why did she get so emotional over seeing his friends, if they were indeed his friends ???
Anyway good job, you kept me wondering till the last line...
