The Wait

January 8, 2009

For him

It probably started early in the morning.. creating a huge rush not to mention the panic and chaos..

By 6.30am he watches her rushed in.. but he.. can only wait.. frantically making calls to all & sundry..

One of those calls are to a friend asking for a Camera.. yes the moment is worth capturing..

He turns up, not with flowers but a Camera.. and he… is still waiting.. at 9 something in the morning..

Finishing a meeting 2 friends show up.. not with flowers but a Submarine.. and he.. is still waiting..

The sub may have helped the hunger.. What abt the anxiety, tenseness they see in his eyes?

Not to mention the sweat pouring down as he waits.. past 2 in the afternoon..

Only pictures of the corridor and the sign board of the theater he has captured..

Finally.. they are sick of waiting.. who? him? her? the doc?

It’s all over by 4 something.. they had no choice but to do it..

The result? A pair of eyes that sparkle and a smile that will melt their hearts

Calls are made once again.. including those 2 too..

They show up again.. not with flowers but a Motorola Charger.. one of the requests

They don’t see the worried looks anymore.. replaced by a happiness that he can’t conceive..

One of those feelings that make you forget.. the troubles at work and how much you owe the bank..

Little does he know that he’d have to purchase a shot gun in 18 years 16 years..

Finally some pics beside the sign boards and corridors.. are shown to them.. but none of him..

They depart with Congratulations… After all this is not like any of his previous achievements..

He truly has made a difference on this lonely planet.. his smile says it all!

For her

I can’t even begin to fathom what she must have gone through for soo many hours..

Such is the miracle of life!

PS : No.. yours trully aint having any..  Atleast anytime soon.. So shush!! 🙂

    Ha ha.. and I love.. how you think its him but it’s not. He’s due in a couple of weeks. To add to the complications there’s another “he” who’s working with me, whose due any moment too. 🙂

    Is there something abt January & babies? Like June weddings? Atleast they get a head start in school. 😛

    Oh and thanks LD! Will definitely keep that in mind!
