A strange love between a man and a beautiful Night. Strange and a Sad story.

That Night, It was just gorgeous. It was splendid. I lied flat on my creaky wooden raft looking up at the night, my eyes caught something gleaming. It was a cluster of stars arranged in a pattern which looked like it was her smile. Night's smile. I was totally dazzled by her looks. They were unique, they were bizarre and they were just fantastic. I knew I had some different thoughts about that Night. Some thoughts I didn't want to disclose.

I couldn't think of anything to do but just dazing at Night's stunning looks. The gleaming stars were her face's jewelry. The moon seemed like a precious diamond in her silky finger. I couldn't describe her. Everything about her was just perfect. Her eyes, her lips. I was just out of words. It looked creepy to me at first, but then I don't know why I started talking to her, hoping she would reply. My brain was telling me again and again that this is a joke but there was bit of love in my heart telling me that if I would have faith, she would surely reply. I asked my first question and some seconds passed, those seconds turned into minutes but I was totally stunned after what I heard.

She answered... I couldn't believe my luck. I saw myself as the most fortunate person in the world talking to Night. When I saw that she answered my question, I foolishly started pouring in my questions. Question after Question. She answered all of them smiling. I admired her beauty the whole time. Her hair looked jet black with a little bit of neon, her eyes were more deep than an ocean. I was asking questions and she was answering every one. But when I asked a question, I thought she'd love to answer but her reaction was opposite. She seemed quiet all of a sudden. I thought she was becoming shy. She wasn't answering. I became worried. I was constantly praying in my heart that,"God! Please don't let her refuse. Make her accept just like I did." I thought she was joking with me but I couldn't be more wrong.

I insisted her to tell me what happened and after hearing what she just was going to tell me, I wished I had been deaf that time because after hearing her answer, my heart literally bled. She said,

"Hey look! I have been thinking that neither you want to leave me nor do I but I believe Life is full of compromises and We.....We have to compromise now.You have to leave now. Fate is not under our control but we can think of a solution that's better for both of us. You see...Time can't live without me too. He'll do anything to stop you. Anything... That's why he is running fast which means we don't have much time left. I also want you to leave me just because I don't want your life to be ruined. People will think of you as a lunatic. I don't want our love to be considered taboo. So please...please leave now. This is the only choice we have left. It's better for you, better for me and better for us".

I felt stunned but after sometimes a bit guilty thinking that I can't do this for my Night. I don't want to but I have to go. It's compulsory. As I bid my last fare-well, tears are trickling down my cheek making me realize how beautiful the Night becomes.

Now THIS is what I love to read from you. This story was so full of ambiguity and love unlike anything else I've ever read. This story was beautiful. The way that you developed your thoughts and made connections that really made the readers feel something.... it was amazing.
