That night…

“I am going to get married”. These words sounded like a thunder on silent roads of Norway at 1 a.m. I managed to smile and clearing my throat, I asked,”Who is she?”

“My colleague…We were dating for past 3 months and a week before she proposed me and..”

“And?”

“I realized she loved me the most and we would be happy together. I am getting married next week”

“Oh wow!! That sounds great.”

“I will drop my wedding card tomorrow at your residence. I hope you will come.”

We had a silent drive and I was silently thinking of the times spent with him. We were best and closest pals for almost 3 years.Today we met after a long time in a mall accidentally. We had been so busy in our lives that we couldn’t stay in touch for long. I was so happy to see him after such a long time and thought we would have so many things to talk about.

The car stopped suddenly and I could hear that soft and caring voice,”Here’s your house. Good night dear!! Take care. Hope to see you soon.”

“I don’t stay…” I paused, looked at him and smiled, “Good night! I will surely come.”

I got out of the car and saw his car driving down, slowly, disappearing from my eyes.I looked at my second floor apartment, thinking of all the times spent with him where we discussed about our new crushes, sipping hot coffee, fighting over silly things, the time he proposed me and I rejected thinking my career was more important than marriage.Slowly the lights in the apartment went off and I was jolted back to reality. I prayed that Mr. and Mrs. Smith would have a happy life together.

I slowly started walking down the road to my new apartment, holding back my tears, thinking that I will never receive his wedding card and maybe will never meet him again.
