It was her birthday and all she wanted was her comfort, her love.
Afternoon turned to evening but I felt no ease, the same insecurity of Rohan not being here remained. I took out my laptop and googled some recent news about Indian wars but nothing seemed to interest me. All I wanted right now was my comfort that was left with Rohan. I missed him so very much today.
I walked towards the gallery and looked up to the sky. Stars were twinkling like never before. My thoughts drifted to how we first met at my clinic. He came down with his frequent cuts, burns and fracture’s. One day, in the morning when I came to the clinic, I saw whole of it filled with red and white roses, one huge bouquet at the centre and all others surrounding it. A letter came with it that was blank and only a heart drawn at the centre after which, he suddenly entered and proposed. A lone tear escaped my eye.
I closed my eyes and stood there in silence “I miss you Rohan, Please come back soon” I said it as though he would hear me say it.
“I missed you too sweetheart” a voice filled my ears. That voice, it made me comfortable, nervous, excited and happy all at the same time. I hurriedly turned around just to find Rohan, in his uniform, standing right in front of me, our noses touched. He held me tightly embracing my waist because if it wasn’t for him, I would be on the ground by now. The hug lasted forever or so I thought. I found my comfort. ‘Thank you god’ I thought.
“Happy birthday” he said pulling away from the hug and leaned in to kiss me. We were centimetres apart when an “I love you” escaped his lips and then within no time I found our lips moving together, perfectly.
