A brief current of cool breeze brushed across her face. The sky was cloudy and the sea was grey. The resonance of waves is something she had always loved, felt soothed and enjoyed.
Him: Do you realize we have to wait for another 3 hours for them to come?!
Her: Yeah! I know! And you better don’t fall asleep!
Him: Hmm… I wont! Just make sure I don’t lie down on my stomach..
Her: duh! (pretends to get up and walk away)
Him: Okay! Okay! (holds her hand)
Her: like what?
Him: Uhmm.. Chidiya udd?! (bursts out laughing)
Her: Seriously! How old are you?
Him: Old enough to create an email ID without the word “breeze”
Her: Hey! (now actually getting up)
Him: Alright. You suggest a game!
Her: Rapid fire! You ask me questions and I ask you questions! We both answer the first thing that comes to our head!
Him: This is your game for intellectuals :-S
Her: Come on!! It will be fun :-D
Him: Okay! Shoot.
What followed was a round of unrelated question and answer session that led to mush and cuddle - which in turn led to a finely drafted plan of alcoholism by the beach.
Him: No seriously! What exactly is your problem with my city?
Her: Nothing! Arrogance and show – off! Also, there is no beach :-P
Him: What the!! What is the beach for? Except for this? (Splashes a handful of water on her)
The water was cold, almost startling her. She was still sitting by the beach. It had almost become dark and the water, silent. And the waves have come close enough that the water splashed on her face everytime it hit the rocks. It has been an hour since she dozed away. She did miss him. She got up and started walking back to her car.
