Unspoken understanding

“Aaaaaaah!” I opened my eyes, wide awake. It was only a nightmare. I dreamt that I was chased by some assailants who were ALMOST going to kill me.

Even after realizing it was a nightmare, I feared to get up from my bed. Suddenly, someone said “meow”. Who was that? Oh! That was my cat. I laughed at my own stupidity.

Again there was a ” meow”. My cat was hungry. But I was too scared to get out of bed, let alone feed him. As I was not feeding him, he climbed on my bed and started meowing in front of my ears. I didn’t know why, but that pacified me. I gathered up my courage and got up.

I went to the kitchen and took out his container of fishes. I was standing alone in the kitchen and feeding him, and looking out for anything that seemed to kill me.

After some time went by, I didn’t feel scared anymore. It was as if the company of the little creature made me brave. He somehow understood my fear and accompanied me. He comforted me.

Pets cannot speak to us in any language, but still it can understand us. Without saying anything, they somehow get to know our feelings. They share our grief and happiness by standing by our side. It is ironic that humans hurt their own species for their own goal, but these little creatures always remain loyal.


Life moves on

They decided to meet outside their college for the last time. They decided they would live on. They decided that a last smile, a last stare, a last talk will help them move on.

So at the due time at the due place they met. They talked a little, laughed a little with hidden sorrows in their hearts. They wanted that moment never to end. But it had to. Somehow time passed by, and they had nothing to do. They couldn’t stay with each other. Their differences, their incompatibility forced them to part their ways even though they loved each other a lot. They couldn’t deny the reality.

Then THE time came. They had to leave, they had to go back to their own worlds. It wasn’t an easy task for both of them. But they just had to! They said their last goodbyes. Both started to walk their own ways, and both looked back and saw tears in each other’s eyes. But that parting was inevitable. That was their destiny. After that day onwards, their time with each other remained nothing but a memory. They both had many things to say to each other. Now, they can’t express themselves anymore. It was all over that day. The most ironic was- life moved on. The promises they made had no value now. Although they wanted to live.each other, they couldn’t, they didn’t. They had to move on. This is life.

A strange world it is.
