Standing on the top floor of the disc, Dheeraj was looking down but it wasn’t the glittering lights that were falling like a beam of lasers, it was the light of her face that preoccupied his mind.
He turns around and saw the light of her life, Reena.
He simply stared at her.
She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Her curly hair, her small black eyes, her pinkish lips, the way she walks, smile, laugh, the way her cheeks drop when she is upset, the way she takes hours to get ready.
Every single thing about her is beautiful.
He kept staring at her and started thinking about the first time, he saw her five months back.
Even in their first meet, he could sense the instant attraction between them.
When he saw her for the first time, the time stop and his eyes kept on staring at her. There’s nothing else in the world that matter.
No noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow.
The time just stops for him.
She looked at him and smiled because even she knew and felt the same way.
The following five months brought them closer yet he always felt a mile out from her.
“So near yet so Far”.
Several times, he tried expressing her feelings for her, but he couldn’t.
Suddenly, the DJ played his favourite track and his mind wandered back to present.
He saw his friends sitting on the sofa, enjoying their drinks and celebrating double good news – his transfer to Bangalore and her admission to country’s premium business school.
Soon, their path will divert.
He went and sat next to her who was already high after having 5 pegs of vodka.
‘I want your drink’ she pointed at his drink.
‘If you touch my drink, you need to kiss me’, he quipped with a wink.
She grabbed his drink and gulps it down.
She glared at him like she was about to punch him, but then she did something that surprised him even more. She kissed him passionately.
It was not an ordinary kiss, only on that point was something magical around the way their lips came together and the way their eyes met.
After the kiss, both of them realize the feeling of separation will be harder than they imagined.
They decided to separate their ways as neither of them believes in long distance as it seldom works.
Following day, before leaving for the airport, he kept a note on her door-
“I’ll always remember. I’ll never forget how you took my breath away, the first time we kiss. No matter what happens. No matter what we do, I’ll always remember the first time I kiss you.”
Two months later,
He still remembers her mesmerizing kiss.
