He locked his PC (No not PC, would rather call it a machine) and retired for the day from workplace.He had to work late that day. He had a meeting to attend and issues to sort out. It required his presence at the workplace. He walked out of his office and walked up towards his car. He found the weather comforting. It was the after effect of the storm. The weather was pleasant and the cool breeze tempted him to spend sometime there. He looked at his watch and it was 11 P.M. It would take only a 20 minute drive to reach home. But he didn’t want to get back so early what with the quarrel he had with his wife that morning. When it was wind storm(call it Laila) outside,It was storm at his home as well with a quarrel between him and his wife. His workplace was so close to the coast. He started his car, decided to drive along the coastal road. He was driving along the coastal road, driving unusually without music, driving across the cool breeze from the coast. He was not driving out of his passion to drive. He was driving for peace. His thoughts were filled with memories of those beautiful days before marriage.
Those were the days when he used to drive his bike along the same coastal road, with the same lady (His Girl friend then) on the pillion seat.Those days were full of love and fun. He didn’t have a career then. He didn’t dream anything big then. All he wanted was to win and marry his love. Now that they are married, but he has got career now and has big dreams to chase. So where is the place for his love. There is not a single percent dip in his love for his lady, but he doesn’t get time to attend her these days. He had all the time in the world to spend all his time with his lady before marriage. All these differences mattered to his lady. He was wondering how the lady of his dream has failed to understand him. This was the main reason they quarreled that morning – Lack of attention and dip in time spent together. He was driving along the road that seemed to have an endless horizon. All of a sudden, He checked his watch and the time was 12:00 midnight. He realized that it was too late and returned back. He decided to turn the radio on, on his way back home. He reached home at around 1:30 AM. He didn’t want to disturb his wife. He opened the door with the duplicate key he had. He found his wife sleeping. He kissed her forehead and lied peacefully beside her hoping that the next dawn would dawn peacefully upon them. There was a silence – after storm.
PS: There was storm both at home and outside. There was a silence after that storm, both at home and outside . He turned back home while driving, when he realized that it was getting late. Does that mean he would choose his lady over his dream, career and turn back to her one day.
