Ageing!

Finally he phoned her.  He waited longtime for a right moment. But it never came so he phoned her. He wanted to reconnect with his old self. She sounded happy, elated and different. He heard her asking

“Are you ok? Why did you phone?”

“Ok” He replied with a voice that carried million years of waiting.

A very short random discussion followed; a question about kids and another about weather.  Of everything he wanted to say, he managed only two boring words: “Keep Well” then she hung up.

He went on to face life as usual. Deep down, he believed that time has changed her.

Deep down, he trusted that she was gone forever.

“Are you ok? Why did you phone?” She barely managed to ask with a voice that carried million years of anticipation

“Ok” He replied

A very short random discussion followed; a question about kids and another about weather.  Of everything she wanted to hear, he said two-boring words: “Keep Well” then he hung up.
