connie-chadwell-eveningShe had come back into his after three years of disappearance, apologized for her irrational behavior and the two of them were once again in touch but something was amiss – the same old bonding, the passion. Then one day while they were talking.

She: Why do you sound so cold and indifferent?
He: I think I am as usual.
She: You have changed. When I came back I thought you would be my same loving Guddu. But no you aren’t the same anymore
He: Time does the trick. Don’t you think so? It changes everything inside and outside us.
She: Who’s Farina? The other day while we were talking you unintentionally called me by this name.
He: Farina! (A smile played on his lips) I had told you. She is a friend.
She: Just a friend or…?
He: A very close and good friend.
She: I see! (Paused for a minute and then said) I think I am late… I have lost those precious years and that bonding.

The silence ruled for a little while then the line went dead.

He put his phone aside, smiling. He didn’t know Farina or any girl for that matter. She was just a woman of his imagination, created to politely get rid of the situation his ex’s return had put him into.

    Great story…really.
    Makes me sad though 😦
    “Farina” is a beautiful name — you made it up ?

    Cav: Farina was one of my sister’s friend. I don’t know what this name means but it sounds good nonetheless.

    Well, long breaks in relationship drag two people apart. It doesn’t matter if the later one comes back admitting sincerity. Not everyone deserve a second chance! 🙂

    When two people move away from each other and lose contact, feelings about each other begin to fade and mind and heart gradually start to focus on what is now present.
    It is usually not only useless but also disappointing trying to go and meet someone with whom all contact was lost for a long time,hoping they would receive us with that same old passion and warmth. For example, trying to locate an old class mate after several long years and going to see him/her and then to be dejected to notice that no amount of nostalgic talk of good old days has been able to re kindle a spark of affection in the other fellow…

    out of sight,out of mind

    aankh say oghel tu phir chahat, unsiyat ka pahar bhi ho to woh bhi ojhel.

    so guddu ney jo kiya, acha he kiya:)

    I’ll try it sometime 🙂

    Though… I am sure it needs special skill to say it all in 55 words.
