5. Again

It was 12 o'clock now. My mobile rang again. The blue light making me wonder was he calling again. I answered the call with trembling hands and without seeing the caller id.

I heard ragged breath on the other end.

"He-hello?"

Then a sharp intake of breath with a cry of pain.

My hands shook beyond control and I was almost about to lose the mobile when -

"Lilly." Delcan whispered.

"Delcan. Oh! Delcan." I cried.

"I love you." His voice was pained and broken.

He was crying.

He had never said those words to me, even though we were officially a couple for five months , he never said those words.

And without second thoughts, I said, "I love you too, baby."

And the line went dead.

Was it real?

"No! No! You can't go like that." I rambled unlocking the mobile screen.

I had received his call from an unknown number. Both the times.

I called back but the mobile was switched off.

"No. No."

I tried again.

Again and again.

"NO! DELC-"

A hand covered my mouth.
