This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 26; the 26th Edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The topic for this month is 'That Last Night'.
That last night, on the long journey flight I, simply couldn’t believe myself, this was happening with me
This was the nut, how could I forget, who had slit his hand, just to hear "I love you" from me.
I saw him coolly enjoying the music, on the seat in front of me.
Oh how I had wished, to strangle him, with my own bare hands.
My mind which had cared only for my duties eccentrically , now was revolving in top gear to show reason to this scoundrel of the top order.
My mind wondered, it looked just yesterday, I lay cuddled with him, on
my honeymoon trip.
I had shuddered with the mere thought.
The heart had paid the price. And that too very heavily.
I was off to relax and enjoy, and this measle ,always a spoilsport , was here again.
I had overheard his talks with the man sitting next to him,
"You see, this lady sitting at the back so resembles my ex-wife, that the first look at her gave me the creeps, that moron, doesn't have the time in the world for any enjoyment trip, just duty and duty, that’s all.”
This was enough, calling me a moron,
My mind couldn't take it anymore.
I had just wanted to get up and give him a piece of my mind, but somehow restrained myself, he hadn’t said anything to me directly. I had just kept mum, to just listen more adjectives he would adorn me with.
The stranger, let's call him" x"here, had blurted
"My friend, very sorry to hear of it, dude, but every women is like that. No time for their husbands. Busy with all the other works in the world.”
My ears had fully tuned to their conversation, straining away, not to miss on a single word.
Nut had Sighed heavily,
“How much crush I had on her, to even think of it, see,”
He was showing his wrist to "x"
“I had struggled for life in hospital for three days,"
X" had exclaimed,
“Whoa, man you are a damn lover man. Tell me more, I also loved a girl like mad, but never had the gut to express myself even. When she came to know of it from my friend, it had been too late.”
Nut had said – “Man, thank god dude you were saved.”
“Tea or coffee ma'am” , my attention was diverted, by the call of the hostess.
I had indicated towards coffee mug silently, as I was afraid he would recognize my voice instantly. After all we had lived together for four full years.
My full mind at the front seat ramblings, I slowly sipped my coffee.
Nut had continued saying, “The more I want to forget her, the more it's impossible. After my divorce, now I regret how criminal I had been in my demands, never tried to see her point of view. Always wanting my way.”
I had begun to like it.
X" had chirped in- “you haven't married again”
Nut had said sadly, “I can never my friend, I 'll die but never marry again, My mind intraposes her image on every lady I see. My life is a living hell.”
X" had said, as if understanding him – “I know, I wonder my sandy, how her life is getting along.”
My mind had fully perked up.
But my heart, had begun to pity the poor nut.
I had remembered the way he had reacted, when due to an important assignment I had to cancel my trip to Hawaii.
I had shuddered at the thought.
Nut had continued – “Mine was a workaholic. All the priorities started and ended at the stupid job of hers”
X had said, trying to be of help, “what work do you do”.
Nut had said, - “what work, I am born to enjoy life”.
He had clearly expressed himself.
A good for nothing guy, I had chuckled to myself.
I had wondered he should have swindled all money he had inherited by now.
Nut had said- “how I wish to see my cherry in my arms again but ....;.....
X"had said – “why don't you go to her man , if you miss her so much.”
Nut had said- “I can never dare , man , she's gonna kill me, for all that I had done to her.”
This had reminded me of the trauma, He was right. If only I had had any weapon of mass destruction in hand at that moment , he wouldn't be here. And I too would be in jail.
I had seen his undying love, after 15 years of breakup and my heart was shaking, should I , should I !
I had slowly risen , firmly resolved , had asked mr. X go to my seat, and had said to him in a bold firm tone,
“What do you want.”
Nut had shot up perplexed- “I, I , what the heck are you doing on this flight”
I had sent in the blow “Well , I think I am changing a bit now, for my dear husband.”
Nut had said with depressed heavy heart ,”So you did find another nut after all, I am pleased for you.”
I had to do it. The mental torment I had been through.
“Oh yea, a passionate lover he is,”
Nut had interrupted abruptly "please leave it.”
I had said “why leave it. He is so wonderful pet, he does as told, a lamb.”
Nut had said indignantly,” I 'll kill that lamb of yours if I hear one more word of him. You know me very well”.
I had known very well, but I couldn't let this golden opportunity go down the drain, “he accommodates so well, I told him to go before me, and keep all arrangements ready, he gladly obliged. Not like you. And he will be at airport to receive me.”
Nut had put his hand on his ears : “It's good. He is going to have it from me at the airport itself.”
I just imagined the fate of any poor man I could shake hands with, at the airport.
But I had loved him too dearly, and hadn’t married. The morning had set in, and we were landing at the airport.
Now, I have narrated word by word, what had transpired, THAT LAST NIGHT. Now if you vote a reunion, I can think of a remarriage to the Nut. So, awaiting your express views friends.
