“Hey you! What’s got into you Mithra?” Vinu shook Mithra harder which made her come back to her senses.
“Uh… What Vinu?” asked Mithra in a weary voice
“Not again! It’s already 6 pm and our cab would leave in another 10 minutes. Do you have an idea to catch the cab?” shrugged Vinu.
“Have to catch it for sure Vinu. Am sorry I got held up with my thoughts. Come on lets go”
Both of them rushed towards the big hallway climbing down the steps and came to the parking area where they found their cab was ready to leave.
They got into the cab and it started moving swiftly with some Hindi track playing in the tape. Mithra slightly bent towards the window and took deep breaths of air. She felt quiet comforting. Her mind drifted away to the day she had that conversation with Nithin.
They had a misunderstanding and it turned out to an argument very fast. Mithra found that they are going too far and so she just left without another word to make the argument to a stop.
It’s been a week since they both had the argument and neither nithin nor mithra spoke. They kept silent.
Mithra felt that silence doesn’t make the situation turn out any better. So she has decided to talk to nithin once she gets back to home. But she was hesitated and not knowing how to start the conversation, she was thinking over it the whole day which made her lost in her thoughts.
It’s been an hour of travel and finally she got down in her home. The cab dropped her and rushed through the busy road.
Mithra took out the keys from her handbag and reached out for the door and she found someone calling her name. She turned back and saw nithin leaning over her apartment grill with his ever lovable smile.
Mithra couldn’t believe her own eyes and mumbled some words in joy.
“Hey mithu… don’t get startled… am back!!!”
“Huh.. When did you come here? Why didn’t you call me? Are you so mad at me?… “
“Hey hey hey relax babes… how long are you gonna make me wait at your door steps? Aren’t you gonna let me in?
“Oh am really sorry! Come in” saying she unlocked her apartment door.
Nithin sat over the sofa and made himself comfortable while mithra was standing at the door and watching him.
“Hey baby doll… come na why do you stand there and stare at me as if I’ve did some crime”
“No nithin. It’s not a crime but still you have done something that you shouldn’t have and u know that it would hurt me”
“Yeah mithu… am really really sorry for that and now am here for your apology.” Saying he stood from the sofa and came near her.
She felt so warm having him around her and she couldn’t resist crying. Tears rolled over her eyes and as she closed her eyes to hide it, the tear rolled over her cheeks and landed up in nithin’s hand.
“Baby please.. Stop crying na. I know it’s my mistake and I don’t want to do it again and this 1 week of silence between us already killed half of my soul and don’t try killing the remaining with your tears. “ saying he wiped her tears.
“And hey as I said earlier u still look beautiful when you cry” said nithin winking his eyes.
Mithra couldn’t say a word but she managed just to say “thanks for coming this far to give this compliment nithin”
“Hey do you think I came for just giving you this compliment. I ve come for getting apology from my princess and guess what you have a surprise”
“Surprise? What is it nithin?”
“OMG!!! That’s really a hell of a surprise and thanks a ton nithin. But how did you managed to get this picture?”
“I got it from your parents”
“What? When did you go to my parents place? And why didn’t you say me?”
“Baby, I am sorry that I was quiet pissed off that day and when you were saying that you missed your parents picture I was not that interested in hearing your worries and I yelled at you for worrying over a picture. But then once you stopped your argument and moved away I suddenly felt that I was hit hard by the reality of what I have done to you. And am really sorry for what I said and I do know how much that picture meant for you. So I thought of straightening up things and thus I went to your hometown to get the picture of you and your parents and now am here with it”
Mithra felt relieved at once hearing that because she had a thought that nothing didn’t really notice how much she loved her parents and how much she missed them around her by working some 10,000 miles away from them. She could not speak but still she hugged him with tears flowing through her eyes and wetting his shirt.
“I love you mithu and I promise I wouldn’t hurt you anymore”
“I love you too nithin”
And that’s when nithin played the song of Shayne ward in his tab…
I don’t wanna leave you here all by yourself
I just wanna let you know I’m there for you,
Like no one else
I don’t wanna drift off to another place
I just wanna lay here in your arms, with your hand on my face…
So lets not ever tell the moon about the Sun
I’ll keep hearing love songs, hoping every wrongs undone
It’s foolish, buy we’ve only just begun
I don’t wanna stop this; all my walls are cavin’ in
I wanna give you something worth living for
I wanna tell you this and so much more
My everything, my universe
I’m so mesmerized by your serenity
Hopefully you’ll take me there, inside your dreams
Just like autumn leaves I’m falling over you
It’s so unbelievable, but you, so true…
Our imperfections are so beautiful right now
I don’t even see them, only diamonds now, remain
Its crazy how without making sound
You can make me feel things; all my walls are cavin’ in
I wanna give you something worth living for
You’re something worth living for…
