Often we get angry and loose temper because of small things...We never realise people get hurt through our behaviour...Love, somewhat kind of trusting each other is one of the best feeling of the
world...????

"Show me!" I shrieked but Sandy didn't. He claimed it to be precious but what can be more precious than me! I screamed each time I felt he was betraying me. He opened it after every interval and it was easy to understand that he felt relieved after a glimpse. A small heart shaped case which sparkled in the daylight each time he clutched it. Our regular meet used in our favourite restaurant where people served us with delicious dishes and sometimes for free. The day was quite exciting as it was six months of her regular meet. The sun shone brightly above my head and my smile was like a star in the galaxy. I reached the restaurant five minutes early and sat down waiting for him to come. Time passed, my fingers were drumming on the table and my eyes were searching for him. Almost one hour passed but he didn't come. Suddenly I noticed something under the menu card. I flipped it and was transfixed to see that case which used to be our root of quarrels. My fingers were willing to open it but my brain was completely against my wills. "I have the right to open it!" I assured myself and opened it. A number of pages which were folded in. One was having the number 6 written on it. I unfolded and started to read. "My Dela, I know it's too late but I have been trying to inform you since the last six months but unfortunately I am not that cruel to break someone's heart. This case contains all the letters which I have been trying to give you and reveal that I am a cancer patient and the doctors had decreased my life to just six months. The day we met for the first time and our hearts decided to move together was really one of my best day but the worst too as it alarmed me of my life span. I never meant to hurt you but it's true but you know what, last decides the best...Maybe just six months but this "just" has a lot treasured in it...Good bye till we meet again in our next life... That day was a memorable day for me.Years have passed but my life ended with that last letter of his. I breathe, I live, I smile, I cry imagining myself to be that Dela who had tears in her eyes and a last letter in her hands given by the one who was waiting for her in the next life...
