A kiss that took their breath away

Today marks six months since they started going out.

Exactly six months ago, they met in a coffee shop on a cold morning. Their eyes met and they started a casual talk while waiting to be served. One thing led to another and here they are months later – inseparable and head over heels in love.

It has been a perfect journey so far. Their time together has been nothing less than the most fun there can ever be. They discuss everything…from books to philosophy, from history to science, from movies to magazine…with so much ease. And the silent moments are golden too. No awkwardness, no worry as to who will break the silence. Every moment is treasured by both of them.

They take care of each other with so much love…the kind of love that lasts a lifetime. They are always there for one another…to lend a shoulder to cry on or to share a laugh…they are by each other, no matter what. They fight, they argue, sure…but that is the extent of it. There is no ego blinding them…one will always come around to make the other smile whenever things go sour.

A pain in her eyes translates to an ache in his heart. Any grief in his voice turns to a hurt in her head. Likewise, a mile long smile on her means a wonderful day for him. And a passionate kiss from him is enough to explain the butterflies in her stomach.

Soul mates, some might call them. That’s what they were…made for each other…perfect as a couple. And now, the one thing they had to do to take the relationship forward is to get married.

And today, on their six month anniversary, he had planned to propose. A movie – the one they saw on their first date – in the evening, then a dinner at her favorite restaurant, followed by a walk by the seashore. That’s where he wanted to propose to her…by the beach, when the moonlight just enough to shine on her already luminous face.

After the movie and the dinner, they drove to the beach and started walking. He got down on one knee when they got to their favorite spot…by the sea, under the magnificent full moon, on the nice spring evening, proposing to the love of his life…he was happy. His eyes gave it all away…the tears, happy tears, started flowing as he looked at how beautiful she was. And she…she couldn’t contain her joy either. She said yes, even before he popped the question, and got on her knees to hug him…a hug that lasted a few minutes.

There were no words spoken, they didn’t have to…because their eyes spoke. Silence such as this is pure bliss, they knew.

On their way back home, he took her hand on his, while she was driving. She looked at him…their eyes met, for few seconds before she was distracted by some honking. And while she was driving, he couldn’t stop looking at his gorgeous fiancé. He wanted to kiss her…kiss her badly…and celebrate their day. In 10 minutes they would be home, but he couldn’t wait. He wanted her right now. So he leaned towards her and without second thoughts, he kissed her. Her eyes closed…like it always did they kissed.

A few seconds later, he let go of her…but only to realize that they just shared their last kiss.

A few seconds was all it took for her to get distracted from the road…to drive right into a truck that was approaching from the other side. It was too late to do anything now at that speed…they knew they were not going to make it. They gazed into each others’ eyes…their eyes spoke for one last time.

And then it was all over. Just like that. In a flash.


On a totally different note, please go peek into my About page if you have a few seconds. The lovely BlueMist made a banner that aptly describes my likes :-). Thank you so much, BM.

    WOW !!

    T,this is awesome!! I mean really really awesome! 😀 😀
    For a chap, who is not much into reading novels and fiction, I absolutely loved it !

    There are so may lines in this post,that are amazing!
    The last part is sad,yet in a beautiful way.

    A pain in her eyes translated to an ache in his heart. Nice!

    I mean I could go on and on and on about how ‘wow’ this is.
    I don’t know abt others,but this is the kind of fiction I like! Great work ! 😀 😀

    aww, Matt…thank you so much. Means a lot :-)…you might like Nicholas Sparks’ novels then…all about eternal love, spending life together…his novels are sweet, tragic and short too…i’ve posted a review on one of his books on the other blog.

    again, thanks so much for those lovely words dear!

      I love Nicholas Sparks’ books. I have read almost all of them. However, I do not like the tragic ends when he kills one of his main characters :(. I liked this one in the same bittersweet way. The narration and the flow is beautiful. Could almost visualize the happenings.

      but without the tragedy in his stories, it won’t be that gripping :D…

      thanks, Prashanti 🙂

    I see you got inspired. 🙂
    Very well written for a person who does not believe in soul mates 🙂 I see we can still convert you to the dark side 😀

    lol yeah :D…

    Loved the theme. The flow. I would not call this is your best. and on a lighter note a little control is always nice. 😛

    😀 control is always the way to go 😀 to be on the safer side 😛

    thanks, BM 😀


    • #10 by BlueMist on December 30, 2009 - 5:59 am

    • #14 by vishwa on December 29, 2009 - 9:06 pm

      • #16 by viswajithkn on December 30, 2009 - 10:26 am

        you know what…I think all the short stories and haiku’s you write, you should publish them in a book and you will do awesome business…:P

        😆 you are too kind…but no, these are not any publishing worthy work 😀


      • #17 by viswajithkn on December 30, 2009 - 10:59 am

        naa…am not kind…(followed by an evil laugh!) that thought stuck me coz there is this acquaintance of mine who published a book full of short stories. nyways was just an opinion.

        😀 hmm…


      • #18 by divz on December 30, 2009 - 10:31 pm

        hey I have not read many short stories but I vouch for the poems 😀

        🙂 too sweet you are 😀


  8. #19 by Psych Babbler on December 29, 2009 - 9:06 pm

    Oh wow…nice! I had an inkling it would end like that…too much perfection in the relationship! When I first started reading tho I wondered if you were telling us something…that you have been in a relationship now for 6 months! 😉 I don’t really like Nicholas Sparks’ books (based on one) but do like your stories!! 😀

    lol :D…thank you dear

    i’ve read two of Sparks’ books..one i liked, one i didn’t…but i like the way he writes…keeps it simple and sweet…and the books are not too lengthy either, so easy read :D..


    • #20 by BlueMist on December 30, 2009 - 6:01 am

      I agree with PB’s feeling. For a split second I too felt that way. 😉

      😆 as i said in response to Swaram’s comment – i won’t be talking about any relationship of mine here for few yrs :D…6 months is too soon to say where anything is going 😉


  9. #21 by G on December 29, 2009 - 10:41 pm

  10. #22 by chotusworld on December 29, 2009 - 11:02 pm

  11. #23 by Parita on December 29, 2009 - 11:03 pm

    Beautifully written!! Touching! I wonder why so many love stories end in disasters???

    well….for fiction, if the love story doesn’t end in a tragedy, then it doesn’t interest me much 😛 … 😀

    thanks !


  12. #24 by Nu on December 30, 2009 - 12:20 am

    Aaah ! It hurt !! But it’s lovely 🙂

    But, can we please have a happy story? At the year end?

    Sorry for the criticism… but, as lovely as the story is, its so sad…

    😀 ok ok…happy story soon 😀

    thanks, pix


  16. #28 by Swaram on December 30, 2009 - 1:23 am

    I thought u r gonna spill the beans somewhere when I started reading 😛
    Sad ending though .. but carries a msg ‘Don’t kiss and drive’ 😉

    A pain in her eyes translates to an ache in his heart. Any grief in his voice turns to a hurt in her head – Loved these lines 😀

    😆 yes, don’t kiss and drive it is… 😀

    thanks, swaram…

    and hey, spilling the beans…not so soon ;)…i will do that only after i’ve been in a relationship for 6 years, not 6months 😉


    • #29 by krags on December 30, 2009 - 11:34 am

      So we are supposed to wait another 5 n a half yrs ?
      You know what , u kids wld ve started their own blogs by the time u decide to tell us 😀 …
      And common – it is already been 6 months and we are still waiting to know 😛 …. Go ahead and give us some hints at least !

      what? when did i say it’s been 6 months to anything? this is just a story mr.. :D..


      • #30 by krags on December 30, 2009 - 12:23 pm

        see , this is why ur stories r not supposed to be too realistic 😉 😛
        nyways , it does not matter how long it has been or whether there be anybody at all so far ; Just give us a name / hint n see what happens after that 😛 ….

        rofl….how about i give you a bunch of names? – Jim Halpert (The Office), Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory), Aamir Khan, Hugh Jackman, the guy from the coffee shop I go to, Lord Krishna (yes, I have a crush on him…since childhood, so what?;) ), Chandler Bing (FRIENDS)….need more?

    Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. ~Albert Einstein

    Same for other way round too 🙂
