It all began with a spelling error on the black board. Being the spelling-obsessed people they both are, that’s how their first conversation started.
Their little bond grew, grew into a strong friendship. He was her personal diary, and she was his. But good things never last long. A silly fight and a useless misunderstanding later, it was all gone, gone before they realized.
Inspite of it, as a last try to mend it, she turned up for his birthday. But that made no difference.
A year went by. A whole year of untold stories, unnoticed glances, and unnecessary anger. It seemed like they had forgotten what ‘normal’ was; something was missing in both their lives, without them even realizing it.
Then came his next birthday. She didn’t turn up. She was done trying to mend something that she thought was long gone. Little did she know that she couldn’t be more wrong.
Unexpectedly, there was an opportunity to go to a College in Vellore, a group of 10 friends, and both of them readily agreed to go.
The diminished spark was relit, stronger than ever before. They got to spend a lot of time together, catching up on everything they missed in each other’s lives.
Finally, all it took was one word and one look into his eyes.
It began feeling like before again.
It wasn’t void anymore.
She realized how much she had missed him. Even though words had remained unspoken for days, he had always been there, a guardian hidden in the shadows.
Here he was now, out of the shadows, back into the light. A light that guides her way.
It was such a beautiful reconciliation.♥
