میں ہوں شب تو صبح
‏دونوں جوڑ کے جدا۔

"bas yeh do din! phir main Pakistan se chali jaongi!" Emaan ne ansu saaf karte huwe uski taraf dekha tha. Woh kamzor lag raha tha, usne halka sa sar asbat me hila diya aur wahan se uth ker bathroom me chala gaya. Emaan janti thi ke ussey kuch waqt akele chaye isliye woh uske peeche nahi gayi thi. Woh kafi der wahin bheti rahi thi!

Emaan wahin bhete huwe sofay se taik laga ker so gayi thi. Alyaan jese hi bathroom se nikla tha uski pehli nazar us per pari thi. Uske baal khule huwe the jo bar bar uske moun per arahe the. Alyaan uske qareeb gaya aur zameen per bhet gaya. Woh bina palak jhapkaye ussey dekh raha tha Jiska chehra abhi bhi ansuon se geela huwa tha. Alyaan ki aankho me aaj phir ek alag chamak thi. Wahi chamak jo chand saal pehle huwa karti thi. Abhi usne Emaan ke baal uske chehre se hataye hi the ke uska phone bajne laga tha. Ek nazar us per dalta huwa woh wahan se uth gaya aur kamre se bhar chala gyaa.

"tum mujhse bina mile kese jaa sakte ho Alyaan" Woh alizay ki call thi jo us per gussa kar rahi thi. Alyaan muskuraya tha. woh muskurahat tanziya thi.

"2 din ki baat hai wapis ajaunga" Uska lehja narm tha

"woh tumhare saath hai?" Alizay ki awaaz me karwahat mehsoos horahi thi.

"haan"

"Ussey khud ko istemaal mat karne dena! woh akela dekh ker tumhe wapis bhelane ki koshish zaroor karegi, per tum.." Usne abhi uski puri baat bhi nahi suni thi ke phone band kardiya tha! Woh sab kuch bardasht kar sakta tha per aaj bhi uske khilaf bola gaya ek lafz uske ander tak aag laga jata tha!

Bahar baraf bari horahi thi, aur yahan toh bahar ke mousam ki tarha dil ke mousam bhi sard the. Woh puri raat isi tarha zameen per pari soyi rahi thi. Thandi zameen ki wajha se usko cheekhein ane lagi thi! aur Alyaan woh toh puri raat kamre me nahi aya tha. Raat ke phone call ke baad woh kahan gaya tha kisi ko khabar nahi thi.

"uth gayi" Woh kamre me aya tha, uski aankhein laal horahi thi. Emaan apne bag se kapre nikal rahi thi, usne mur ker ussey dekha aur kuch der wahin tham gayi. Uske haath me safeed aur laal gulaab the. Emaan ke chehre per hairani ke saath saath muskurahat bhi thi.

"yeh..?" Woh bas yahi bol payi thi. Alyaan qadam bharhata uske nazdeek aya tha

"yeh tumhare liye hai!" Usne muskuratein huwe usko phool thamaye aur apne bag ki taraf bhar gaya. Emaan abhi tak usko dekh rahi thi.

"thank you! lakin yeh" Ussey shayad samjh hi nahi araha tha ke woh kiya bole

"ghar araha tha toh raste me yeh nazar agaye toh socha tumhare liye lelun! ab tyaar hojao meeting ke liye late horahe hai!" Woh yeh kehta huwa bathroom me chala gaya, aur emaan peeche khari in pholon ko takti rahi. Kiya woh yeh sirf is liye kar raha tha ke unse ussey request ki thi ya woh ussey maaf kar chuka tha?

Woh dono meeting se jald hi free ho gaye the. Meeting kamyab rahi thi jiski wajah se Alyaan ka mood kafi acha tha aur ussey khush dekh ker Emaan bhi khush thi. Woh dono Paris ki galliyon me chal rahe the, woh shehr intehai khoobsuraat tha usko yunhi mohabbat ka shehr nahi kaha jata waqai udher ki har ik fiza me mohabbat aur pyaar basa huwa tha. Woh dono pur sakoon ho ker tourist ki tarah jagha jagha ka jaiza le rahe the. Kafi der woh dono yunhi un hujoom wali sarkon per chalte rahe, Hujoom zayada tha jis wajha se Alyaan ne uska haath tham rekha tha. kafi der chalne ke baad Emaan ko bhook lagne lagi thi toh woh dono ek restaurant me agaye the. Us waqt shaam ho chuki thi, meeting ke baad se woh dono ek lafz nahi bole the unki khamoshi aur aankhein hi sab keh jati thi, per is dafa lafz zaroori the, Yeh faasla sirf lafzo se mit sakta tha lakin bolne ki himmat dono me nahi thi. Khana khatam kar ke woh dono wapis sarko per chalne lage the. Phir chalte chalte woh Eiffel Tower ke samne aa gaye the.
