It was his birthday. He was waiting for her call. He didn’t love her but enjoyed her company. He wanted her to be the first one to wish him, wanted to party with her & make it a memorable day like he’s been doing for the past 5 years.
12:00 am- No call, no texts.
He waited for another 2 hours but was disappointed. He slept with the phone in his hand expecting her to call.
All through the day, he got a lot of birthday wishes from everyone except her. Did she forget or is she playing a prank on me, he thought?
At 8pm, he logs in to his Facebook & sees that she was out with a guy all day. He hurriedly texts her to come to their favourite Ice cream parlour in 30 minutes.
I love you D. I know I’ve been a fool all these years. But how could you go out with him when it was my birthday. You know I am a loser when it comes to expressing emotions, you should have understood by the way I treat you, by the way I look at you, by the way I care for you.
She wanted to laugh & exclaim her happiness, but all she could do was hug him. She was happy to have him, for life. The hug felt different & special.
Love- Love will find a place, if not now, tomorrow, or someday. True love is togetherness & fondness, and being thankful for just that 1 person in your life.
“You are so good at this Deep” , I tell him with a lot of love and respect for my lil brother. And pat comes a reply “K’ or at the max “Thankxx”. He sings a “mocking” song for me which irritates me and then amuses me, at the end complimenting him. I adore my brother to that extent. Yes, I do get mad at him and blast at him at times; And at such times he knows he has to be quiet. We have a sort of love mock relationship. I love him and show it in the form of adoration and compliments. He loves me and shows it in the form of his mocking and never fail to amuse me. And I know if ever I need any advice, I have to just go to him and leave it to him. He maybe younger but is very clear on thoughts and makes wise decisions giving the best advice one would want.
Leaving everything aside, I can’t beleive my lil brother is 21. He has grown from a shy indivisual into a grown up smart and witty guy !! So here’s wishing you a very very “HAPPY BIRTHDAY BHAI”.
