It rained all Night

The below post is a hybrid mix of truth, fantasy and fiction.

Boredom was killing me and he was not the one to just let me stay bored. Or alone. Five minutes after the trivial fight we had about me not wanting to see his face again, he called back. Half an hour later he picked me up and we were on our way to our favorite place. The best part about us is that no matter how much we fight or yell, when we come together everything else is forgotten. It is just me and him. Us. He psyches me out to no end and raises my temper beyond any limit. I slap him, kick him, punch him, hit him and he dutifully bears it with a smile. He twists my hands occasionally only to kiss me at the end. Whatever you call this, this is the kind of relationship we share.

As we were on our way it suddenly began to rain. Softly at first and then came the piercing heavy drops. We stopped and ran to a shed for shelter. We were half wet by the time we got there. There were about a dozen people there already, each trying to dry themselves as much as they could. It was cold, really cold. I struggled with my wet hair as I suddenly looked up.

Then the world stopped spinning.

I've seen him a million times before, but today I actually saw him. All wet, struggling to blink, he looked so gorgeous in the dim fading light. Suddenly I felt all obsessed, like a child with a shiny object. I know he is a killer, but when you are best buddies you tend to over look all this and take the person for granted. But at this instant, it was different. I suddenly felt the urge to be near him. His wet hair slid carelessly along his forehead, as he was hurriedly trying to protect his phone dodged in his now soaked pocket. A drop of rain clung to his lower lip refusing to let go. I was thrilled and for a split second I wished that we were alone. My peripheral vision flashed a different face and distracted me. I closed my eyes, wiped it out and reopened back to him.

I suddenly felt oblivious to the crowd. My eyes were fixated on him refusing to pay heed to my heart. Temptation was inviting me and the whole universe seemed to be chanting a new song. Our song. I stood still, unable to take my eyes off him. He looked at me now and caught my eye. They held their place. No, I wasn't embarrassed. I told you, that's the kind of relationship we share.

Are you staring at me? He asked.

Yes. I said. I can't lie, you guys know that.


I don't know.

He smiled and came closer to flick a strand of my hair behind my ear. I felt goosebumps all over me. It was madness, what on earth was happening. The jerk of goose bumps made me look away. He held my hand tight and waited for the rain to subside. I felt a pang of unease. I haven't felt this way in a long time. The rain Gods agreed to settle for a soft drizzle and we left. I could feel his mind racing too. Not a word was spoken until we reached our place. I was feeling hazy. For once I wished that I was drunk, so that I could blame something else for what I was feeling. But I was on my way from work so that was way out of question. As troublesome as it was, I did not want the feelings to stop.

We sat there talking and laughing, still none of us erasing from our minds what had happened a few minutes ago. That's the thing I hate the most about him. Whatever happens, he makes me feel so comfortable. There is never any awkwardness between us. Its been a long time now and we have still been the same. As the night seemed to come to an end, he held my hand and looked deep into my eyes.

You know, right? He asked. Rather said.

I know. I confirmed.

And then it began to rain.
