Sun dipped lower in the sky and sunshine has lost its brightness, the light of the day was draining away, giving way to the velvety dark of night.
The trees that lined the lane stood as black statues silhouetted against the darkening sky, slowly their shadows melted away into the blackness of night. The sandy soil was on its way to becoming a rich sable and the cloudless sky promised an unfettered view of the heavens. It was all so perfect, but I missed him. I was sitting in my balcony and thoughts were pouring in. I was all excited as it will be our anniversary tomorrow. I feel the anniversary is a milestone every year for a couple. It's the time when you look back on the year and evaluate how it has shaped us? It's time for a celebration!! Yes, I exclaimed, and the doorbell rang.
"Rudra, you are back", happily I ran to him and hugged him. He said let's spend some quality time under this dark velvety heaven. Rolling his fingers over my lips, he whispered I know it's our day tomorrow. Listening to this a wave of sparkling happiness ran through me. We looked into each other's eyes and silence said it all. All of a sudden the phone rang and he rushed there, it was an emergency.
Yes, he was a cardiac surgeon. He said, " I need to leave for the hospital."
And in no time he disappeared from there. Soon Earth's star rises on the horizon, spreading her gold in every direction. And finally, the sun rose, filling the sky with shades of orange and pink. Peach and magenta, amber and rose, radiating hope, a new beginning to our life. Another chance to live another milestone. The start of a brand new year for us. I called him, but he was busy in the OT. I called the reception. I said, "when will Dr Rudra get free," they said, " mean it will take around 3 hours." Later I even asked her for appointments and soon planned a surprise for the evening. Yes, surprise visit to the hospital.
I got decked up from head to toe. Straight long hairs with highlights, sparkling eyes Rosy lips and a gorgeous red knee-length one piece. Red heels made me look all the sexier. I reached the hospital and rushed into his room with a surprise but I was shocked. He was locked in someone else arms on a single armchair. With their wine glasses on the table. As if it was their anniversary. I was shattered. And in this instant of his betrayal behind the door shattered me by the truth of who he was. And I lost my consciousness. A few hours later I regained my consciousness, but could not get-together myself. The feeling of being cheated, stabbed, played and broken sank my heart. It was one of the worst feelings in the world. That day was the last day when I met him. I was in pain. I cried for months as I trusted him, but his actions spoke the truth. Finally, one day when I was reading a book and an inspiring contact strikes me.
If you are spending your time thinking someone betrayed you and your present consequences for what they did to you to your heart, then you're allowing them to hurt you a second time in your mind. Later I decided to let go of my past and concentrate on my future. I always aimed to be a successful hairstylist. So I enrolled in a salon academy and took a thorough knowledge of all styles. In no time I learned them all. This was my new beginning.
At this point, my life had taught me who matters, who doesn't and who always will. A few years later that is today I am awarded for the best hair stylist in Mumbai. Today I reveal the secret of my success and strength as the focus of my energy of building something new and let go of what has happened in the past.
Yes, I achieved my goal andhappiness. I'ts time for celebration.
