Partners.. in Love ?




Scene I

He entered and moved swiftly to his seat…
He was two minutes late.
She was due in another three minutes.

She always came on time, a full five minutes after he did.




He ordered the usual and sat waiting expectantly.. She swung the door open, her head held high… a familiar air of confidence and style about her… He had been watching her for a week now.

She sat across the room, with her paper in hand and the lanky kid waiter, who he suspected had a huge crush on her, placed the usual orange juice and toast before her.

She looked at him… for the first time, or so he thought… She looked up and smiled…

Those rich lips, the high cheekbones, the arched brows… the short wavy hair framing the heart shaped face… the smile went up to her almond shaped eyes…

He smiled back… a shy grin…


Scene II

They hit off quite quickly… It all began with that smile.. n this is where they ended up… snuggled in each others arms…

Everything was jus right… the passion…for life… for each other…their likes and dislikes… They moulded into each other’s life beautifully.

However there was one thing missing… there was no love between them… and they were comfortable with how things were… No commitment… No strings attached…



It was she who asked once during the early days of their relationship as to what he expected from her… And his answer pleased her… He just wanted to have fun… till it lasts…

HIM:

No one really knew the real him.. Quite an introvert.. happy being left alone… in his own world… books, movies…

Not much of a party animal… but amazingly.. he always gets the best girls… he doesn’t even have to flirt…They seem to be attracted to him as if by magic…

HER:

The eternal romantic…. Believes in fairy tales… happy endings… Love at first sight n love forever…

Has been in wait for her dream guy… the perfect one who can turn the unsung medley of her life into a lovely melody…


But then how did she settle for a relationship with him???


Searching for the ideal guy and always in wait for the perfect one… she threw away many propositions that came her way…

Eventually she settled for one that seemed like a dream come true… a love story fit to be a movie script….

But then problems arose…

She left him…. in search of something better…

She had had enough of serious commitments…. Of broken promises… and tear stained pillows…

She wanted excitement… thrill…

She was in it for fun too…


Scene III


And there they lay happily… in each other’s arms…. Without a thought for anything else in this world…


Until her cell phone rang…

“Yeah honey, I ll be right there…”

To him… she said… Its my fiancĂ©.. I gotta go… its been great being with you… Thank you for giving me a lovely time… I m getting engaged this Sunday…

And… if I ever decide to get involved in an extra marital affair, you ll be the first one I call… she said as she closed the door behind her… her eyes still twinkling… her smile still bright…

That night… he sat alone… on the couch.. where they lay entwined a few hours back…

“She’d been nice… he liked her a lot.. the fire of their passion hadn’t died yet…
Drat!!! Now he d have to find some one to replace her…”


Epilogue:

[ I don’t know if its fitting… Anyways, I liked this quote.. And It stays here…as a epilogue.. Whether u like it or not…]


“When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”
