She and I

She and I were happy that day, I remember vividly how we looked at one each other. Her face was as clear as moon which shone bright under the bright day light as we awaited for him. We were to go for vacation and it had been a long time since we didn't go to have a good family time. Everything was fine the way it was supposed to be except for the day which was a week ago, when I found my her and him arguing about something which they tried to keep me off from. I have never seen them get into intense argument, anyhow I knew they loved one other and I had heard somewhere that petty quarrel between couple makes their bond stronger. Anyhow everything seemed normal and I was actually excited, real excited to go there with my mom and dad. I loved seeing them together, and mom used to share their classic love story of how they met in at a bus station and felt in love at first sight since then I had a big attachment with bus well, hadn't it for it I would not have been born. And that day we were to travel by bus we had tickets and waited for bus which was to arrive by 10 mins then. He had gone to bring some snacks and she and I awaited for him too. 10 mins past and the bus arrived I hurried in, she took a seat and I sat on her lap, and the seat beside us was for him. I had dusted off that seat for him. A strange old looking man came and settled beside us, I looked at her and mourned, "It's supposed to be our dads seat! ". She didn't say a thing. I complained the driver saying someone else took my dad's seat but he was calm and replied that my dad had sold his ticket to that man a day before. With confusion I went back and settled on her lap again. I asked her but she didn't say a thing. I was back then 8 years old. I began to nag and eventually weeped telling I want my dad. She was not reactive. I looked at her eyes burdened with tears. It has been 10 years now, I haven't seen him since that day but she tries her best not to let me feel his absence. I don't even question about him and even the reason for them falling apart. She don't seem to miss him. I wonder at the back of her mind if she remembers how they first met and think over how they could depart after having shared so much because I do everyday. And it hurts not have them together. Since that day only she and I lived our live, just she and I.
