Chapter- 11 | I don’t remember
A short fiction tale
I don’t remember
“We were friends in school.” she said,
That was shocking to hear, because I barely knew her and she says we were friends.
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“Look, I know you are angry at me but please let me go, I don’t wanna talk.” she tried to get away.
It loosed my grip on her hand when she jerked her wrist,
And I kept looking at her in disbelief as she walked away.
“I hope it’ll all be better.” she said before leaving,
Everything felt revolving around me,
We were friends? I was mad?
When did all that happened, how do I not remember her.
My head was spinning wild, I couldn’t understand what was happening.
There’s only one place I go to seek peace and that’s the lake,
Funny how things turned out,
Right when I reached there I was thinking about Joe.
And I saw him sitting along waterside.
“What are you doing here?” I asked and he looked back,
“I could ask you the same.” he said with a smile,
Sitting beside him, I explained what happened and he listened calmly,
“Do you think she was lying?” he said when I stopped speaking,
“Why would she lie?” I said, I even more confused now,
“Well then, let’s forget it for now. We will look into it tomorrow.” he said holding my hand.
It felt good, and I did as he said. I stopped worrying about it.
We sat together till the sun went down. I got the peace I was looking for in the calmness of his words.
I don’t know what is it that we have, but the connection I feel with him is different.
It’s like I’ve always been with him. And I would like to be with him furthermore.
