Monsoon and the Long drive….

It was a Saturday afternoon blessed with drizzles.She had just turned on the TV and switched to the music channel.   ‘ Rim ghim gire sawan, sulag sulag jaye maan, bhije aaj iss mausam mai, lagi kaisi ye aagan….’ played and she was lost in those rain drops outside.
Yes, indeed the rains had the capacity to set your mind on fire, she thought as she stared at the drizzling rain through the window.Your mind just stops wondering around and is transfixed on the thoughts of that one person.
She had a sudden desire to meet him.Even though they lived in the same city and met frequently, these days she used to get sudden urge to meet him.May be it was because of his words, his positivity, his energy, but even the 10 minutes spend in his company kept her charged for the whole week.She would be more than happy if they could meet everyday, but it was not feasible.
Somewhere around evening it stopped drizzling.She decided, that’s it, I have to go and meet him.She took her scooty and went to his office.He was working that Saturday.All the way from her home to his office, her thoughts were fighting among themselves,’What will I call and tell him? Will he be annoyed that I am bothering him after a long day at office? Will he come or will he ask me to go ? Forget the rest, what will I call and say? Okay first I’ll just call and tell him that I’m near his office. if he asks why I’ll tell that I had come nearby for some work and thought should call him.’
So now everything was sorted so on reaching near his office she called him.Even though everything was well rehearsed in her head, her heartbeat was still racing with every ring.
The ring stopped.”Hello, han say!”, he said.
“Ahhh….Ha I am waiting near your office.”, she almost trembled with her words.
“Okay! Wait for 5 to 10 minutes.I’ll finish my work and come.”He said.
“Alright.”, she said with a big smile on her face.
He arrived after sometime and said,“Move back, I’ll drive.” She moved to the pillion.He just came, started the scooty and took off.She was unable to figure out what was his mood exactly.Was he in a good mood? Did he really wish to go anywhere out? Was he tired ? She just wanted to talk for a while, eat some thing or have a cup of tea together and leave.But he had started driving without asking anything or saying anything.
After a while she said, “ Aare, what happened is, I don’t ride scooty much, so I thought I’ll take it to a long drive today.Anyways, I was just sitting at home.”
“Ohhh!! That’s good.Very good. Scooty needs it once a while,” he said and asked, “Where shall we go ?”
As it was saturday night, the malls would be crowded so she suggested a nearby lake.A lake side would be great to spend some time together.They parked the scooty nearby and had some chaat at the nearby stall.And then all the talking began.About how each other’s week was, what’s going on in the office, and the other gossips which usually the friends the share.
It started drizzling again.Luckily she had carried an umbrella with her.They rushed near the scooty. He sat on the seat and she was standing in front of him holding the umbrella.There they were, standing in the middle of the drizzles, sharing the same umbrella, surrounded by the dim street lights around.
“I was totally tired and exhausted.Good that you came, I felt much better and relaxed.”, he said.That one sentence brought both, relief and happiness to her heart.
The drizzling stopped after sometime and he said, “ Chalo let’s go now.”She had to leave unwillingly.But this is what she feels everytime she meets him.She so doesn’t want to leave.She sat at the back.But she was super happy.This boy, had just come with her without asking any questions, after a long day at work, did not seemed to be annoyed and was actually happy to be with her.She was so happy that she hugged him unknowingly from behind.
He notoriously asked, “So did your scooty enjoy the long drive?” giving a naughty stress on drive.She smiled shyly and said a yes.
He stopped near his house and handed the scooty to her.She sat on the driver’s seat and was ready to go.He came closer to her and have a quick peck on her cheek and said bye.She smiled, said bye and drove off. Waves of bliss were just flowing throughout her body after that.She actually wanted to get-off from her scooty and dance her way home. That not-so-long long drive had made her weekend.
They were friends, may be a little more.They didn’t have a specific name to give to the bond that they shared.But now she didn’t feel like giving it a name as monsoon that given her a wonderful experience.
