UNSAID WORDS

 

It was quite a warm winter evening. Sun sank lower in the sky, light of day draining away, and giving way to the velvety dark of night. Twilight had fallen. Crickets started chirping. Street lights were clicked on. The sharp shadow of the lamppost had faded into the dark of the sidewalk. The wooden benches were perfectly arranged in a garden. 

He was waiting for her to come. He sat on one of those benches. Air became cooler. He had goose bumps from the evening chill. He was already nervous. He was rubbing his sweaty palms on his denim jeans after every 2 seconds.  He was staring at the Ferris wheel which was near the garden. The thoughts were running through his mind. He was murmuring, practising what he was going to say. He was looking here and there. On every bench there were couples. Many couples chose this place to express their love and he was one of them. They both had been best friends for almost 2 years. Then he had decided to take the next step.  He had been waiting there for more than two hours when she finally arrived.

She looked like a princess. She had worn a white top and blue denim jeans. He became blank. He forgot what he had practiced. He was trying to catch his breath. She was breathtaking. The divine yellow light from lamppost was falling on her. She walked towards him. Everything around them had stopped. Her eyes were blue. Not the ordinary sky blue, or the colour of the paint flaking off the old shed in the back of the field, or even the little flowers that spring up by the side of the road. Her eyes were blue like sea, crystal clear blue- shimmering. Looking into her eyes you could hear the waves rolling on to the shore. Her eyes were comfortable, warm, and familiar. Her eyes were that kind of blue. Her eyelashes were long and thick, over the piercing blue eyes. Her soft lips stretched into a smile.  Her sensational smile made him smile too. There was something about the way she smiled; butterflies seemed to escape from the pit of his stomach.  When she came close to him her eyes shined so impossibly blue that she’d spent her childhood believing she had own sky inside of her. As she sat next to him her perfect curled hair danced between a black and brown. Her fragrance was sweet. That was her natural smell, it was earthy and yet floral, fleshy yet delicate. It was stimulating yet relaxing. 

“Hi!!” She said and smiled a little.

“Aaa..H….i” He responded.

“What’s up?” She asked raising her eyebrows.

“Nothing Nothing” He said.

“You called me and said it was important. And now you are saying NOTHING! Seriously!” she said angrily.

He just rubbed his sweaty palms together and said, “Wait….I want to say something”

“I want to confess something. I know this is going to sound really weird but you need to listen to this. The day I met you I knew that this was not going to be just for a day. Even though I found you on ordinary day, it felt like I found a precious pearl in an oyster. We have been best friends for years. We have spent so many memorable moments together. We understand each other like no one else.I can’t stop thinking the days when we spent times together, fights starting with small arguments and then ending with burst of laughter. You are the angel in my life who brought me to life from darkness, who lifted me from hell towards heaven.   I used to be lonely, waiting for the right person to come by and love me. And I guess I found that person. It's you. Yeah! I love you. And because I love you I can’t be selfish with you. You know what I think, look at that Ferris wheel. I want to go on the Ferris wheel with you. When we reach at its top I am going to propose you and then kiss you”

He took a deep breath and looked at her.

She looked annoyed and frustrated.

Angrily she stood up and started walking away from him. He was there, alone, under the moonless sky. He watched her going away from him.

He kicked the bench angrily. He was frustrated on himself. He looked upward, watching the only star in the sky he said, 

I wish I’d said what was on my mind.
