04/04/2008

Friday the 4th of April, 2008.

The tension in the air is almost too much to handle. How could she still be in the office.. It was already 2:30pm. She had sent him, but...

He had told he would call. As soon as he could confirm the location.

Last time it had been more than a year back. And now again. The phone rings, and she almost jumps out of her chair.
"Yes?"
"Sorry, I am not exactly feeling well. I will give you a call later." Why can't people just let her be, for today???

Finally, she decides she can not take it any more. As it is, he will call her on her mobile. She goes to her manager and mumbles something incoherent about leaving early due to some pressing work and leaves. On her way to the lift, she almost collides with the pantry boy, and mouths a meaningless apology which hardly escapes her gloss coated lips.

She is conscious of the gloss. She spent an extra ten minutes on getting ready today. It was not an ordinary day, after all..

Down on the roadside, she is desperately looking for an auto. But not one of them is in sight. for that matter, not even a taxi. Seems there is a cosmic conspiracy against her. One that is planning to stop her from completing her.... mission. But today there would be no stopping her. She was determined. And when she made up her mind, there were few things which could stop her. She would go to any length to do it. Any length. With this thought in mind, she started walking towards the expected rendezvous point.

He would be waiting for her there. But why has he not called yet.. Just then the phone rings..
"Where were you?? I was waiting for your call for eternity..."
"You got it?? I knew you would... I am on my way already..."
After all it is not everyday that a Rahul Bose movie premiers. She will watch Shaurya first day, first show. Her son had bought the tickets in black, after all...

I wish I could pack so much of passion into watching a movie.. rocking post!!

Pri said...

whoaa!! did those 'shaurya' guys pay u for this?? :-/

well im a big fan of 'rahul bose' too...i loved him in 'mr and mrs iyer' but i found him really silly in 'jhankar beats' (but i consoled myself that the script demanded it)...so i decided to keep his reputation by not watching any more of his films...want that first impression i have of him to be the last impression...sigh!

@ beauty...
inspiration is you only, hon... i think me in love was complimenting me when she said she thought it was you who had written it...

marvin the paranoid android said...

@ pri
now that you say so, i think i should go ask them for some money... but i guess it was less about the movie or rahul bose... it was more about the woman...
