Megh and Jiya were one of the happening youths in their village. They have been seeing each other for quite some time. Their parents weren't very keen about this friendship and showed unhappiness towards their relationship. On realising that they are no longer just friends and that have fallen for each other decided to give meaning to their togetherness. But aware of their parents reaction they decided to go to a new destination to create their tiny new world and begin a new life in the laps of their love.
Megh and Jiya jotted the dates in their calendars, made up their minds and planned to board the train to reach their dream destination.
Jiya with her baggage reached the station and her eyes started searching Megh. Every passerby's eyes seemed as if they were staring at her. The train to be boarded reached the platform. Jiya occupied her seat and waited for him. But there was no sign of his arrival. Finally the guard blew the whistle, the red signal changed to green but Megh was not to be seen at all. Jiya quickly got off the train,sat on the bench near by with mixed feelings of deception and anger when she got a message from Megh. The letter read: "My love. Today if we take a decision of moving on together in our lives tomorrow we might repent on it. I cannot live with the guilt of my entire life. I can still be there and we can still move on together but...is our love mature enough to assure to accept each other's shortcomings gracefully? Will we surely make up a "made for each other couple?" Do we really have the heart to appreciate each other's decisions and give up our EGO if time demands?"
When I was packing my bags these questions started reeling in my mind. I gave a pause to myself and sat down thinking "am I truly the right choice for you or will I leave you with tears in your eyes for the rest of your life?"
"My sweetheart I have been trying to figure out an answer for this but somehow have failed in doing so. And if I'm not confident about myself how can I expect you to confide in me. I apologise for having kept you waiting so long but this wait is better than being too late. You might be annoyed with this act of mine but is far better than our future hurtful actions.
I owe to you my heart and you owe yours to me. I promise to preserve it rather than pierce it.
Stay happy hereafter. My love should always be your beacon light and not your unsaid plight."
On reading the letter Jiya was shocked. She sat for a while motionless looking at the disappearing train, unable to decide what step she should take or what reply she should send back or just wait for the right train.
