She'd been sitting and staring at the monitor for a while now ... and still didnt know what to reply. His mail read:
Fwding u the details of the resort I was talking abt. One of the best in Wayanad :) Shall I book for next weekend?
.... a mail from the travel agents followed.
Nayana felt a tickle when she remembered the few days they spent together. Those were among the best days in her life ... new experiences, new wants ... new longings! She had it all from him ... and it was too tempting to spent a couple of days alone with him ... to lie on his bare chest, when he runs his fingers all over her ... playing havoc with her ... his stubbled cheek rubbing against her neck ... launching her into a frenzy!
But the end of all ... the question was, if she is doing the right thing. The lies she told her parents ... to friends ... just to be with him! All she knew abt him was that she luved him ... more than anything else ... and wud do anything for him. But ... what abt him?
Nayana didnt even know his friends ... or room mates. His sister is the only one she knew. Anita Didi kept assuring her that Amar likes her very much and keeps talking abt her. But, there is not much that she cud do to allay her fears. There is only so much that can be done via chat or mail ... she couldnt even talk to her till now. She was eagerly waiting for Anita Didi to come to India during Diwali.
Finally .... after a long tussle ... the logical part in her won ... and with great difficulty she jolted down:
I wud do anything to be alone with u ... u mean the world to me. But shudnt we wait for some time now? Atleast till I tell abt u at home? May be till Didi comes to India during Diwali. Hasnt she promised to present the matter at ur home too?
Amar was waiting eagerly for her response. He was actually not sure that she wud come again with him. In spite of his best attempts last time when they met, she sounded sceptic abt telling more lies at home and spending days with him. And now the mail ... does this mean that she doesnt trust him??? He was disappointed to say the least ... and miserable to be more precise.
But ... it didnt last long. He knew what he should do to get her attention again. Late evening, he opened his laptop and logged in as anita.sharma@.....com and there it was ... a mail from Nayana, asking abt her vaccation plans. He hit the reply button and started writing:
I am really sorry for not mailing u for the last few days. Work had been a li'l hectic and if things go like this ... am not even sure if I can make it to India during Diwali :(
And yeah ... Amar too mailed me today and he sounded upset. Did u guys have a fight or what? I know that he luvs u a lot and the only thing that makes him upset nowadays is not being able to spend time with u. I've never seen him this crazy abt anyone in his whole life. Is there anything I need to do? I've mailed him back and asked him to take u out tomorrow. Wish u too a gud time together.
Lots of luv,
