I remember the date quite well 14th February 2006. I was in Kalimpong lost between the highway and the woods and it was 4 pm in the evening. I suddenly hear a cry from a distant 

"Be my savior for tonight !" I wonder who it could be. My legs wanted to run miles away but my heart asked me to enter the woods. I took a step in and was lost with the beauty inside. Beautiful voices sang to me and rose petals fell on me. 

Is this a dream or is this reality? I questioned myself. It felt like it all happened before and its happening again. I couldn't picture anything else but that voice that came to me when I was a child in my dream. I wondered what relation could I have with him. Was it destined for me to be here or was it fate? My dreams seem to enter reality. I soon came across a big tree, everything else had disappeared but it was me and the tree for tonight.


How can I help you, I asked with confidence, holding back my fear. He laughed and said will you be my saviour for tonight. I was terrified not by his voice but by his words. 

I have heard this before. He laughed again and said, Can you shed a tear for me. I wondered how stupid it would be to just agree to a talking tree but without holding back I had agreed. 


This was something unexpected. I realised how lonely I was and all I needed was someone to rest my back upon to hold me and say, '' Its okay to not to be okay ?" I wanted something real and that's when a drop fell from my eyes onto the talking tree. For a minute everything was standstill and the tree and turned into a human being. I was terrified taking deep breaths. He caught my hand and said it's only for this moment I get to show you my real self but when the sun comes up I'm back to being a tree. He kissed me on my forehood and said, welcome to the woods. Suddenly voices started whispering from all ends 


Hail the Queen and the king of the woods. I then realised that this was where I was supposed to be in his arms every year at this date. I kissed him before the sun rose and our love had turned to this. He went back being the spirit of the woods and I in the real world. 


I came back to the highway and saw that the heavy traffic. I looked back and saw there was no sign of the woods. I smiled to myself and said we will meet again, in another year at the same time.
