And almost after a passage of 2 years, in the middle of the dark night, while she is struggling to drift to sleep, she receives a text aessage. She can see that the number is not familiar to her. Rubbing her eyes, she reads through the content,"I NEED YOU, PLEASE COME BACK". At that very moment, she knows that the past she has been batteling with herself to forget, has just smacked right into her face and has dragged her two years back from where she had left it. Her hands begin to shake as she heads to reply back. She gets chills and sweats simultaenously. Her face turns pale and lips sense dryness. She suddenly feels a million years thirst and her eyes fill with water. Tears trickle down her cheeks. She sobs breathlessly as she buries her innocent face in the pillow so that nobody can hear her shrill cries. She moves her hands across the phone screen to block that number while getting those knots in her empty stomach. Her thudding heart fights her racing mind, insisting it not to do it. Afterall, the text mesage is from SOMEBODY SHE USED TO KNOW, SOMEBODY SHE USED TO LOVE, or maybe SHE STILL DOES. As her mind wins over her heart and she finally ends up restricting the entry of that phone number again, she realises that SHE CAN REALLY MISS HIM BUT NOT NECESSARILY WANT HIM BACK because, life seems to be no less than a blessing WITHOUT HIM since he had been the root cause of ruining it for her. Now it seems like she has MOVED ON!
