He was a shrinking violet. A book of well guarded secrets. She was a chatterbox. An unsettling nervousness about her.
Both had failed in love.
When they met, which was just once, everything made perfect sense. It felt like they knew each other since always. Late night chats became a custom. She cured him of pain, he wiped off her tears.
Then one day, fate played a rude game. He fell for her, didn't know how. She couldn't fall for him, didn't know why. And they went back to being strangers, a part of an incomplete love story.

It was a sweater made for two. The outside pink,
the inside blue.

He often wore the blue when she used to be in his arms,
in their balcony near the snow clad mountains,
the two of them having tea, talking love and
dreaming about the future.

Now he is gone, and she sits alone, having tea and
remembering his love; the pink on the outside and the
blue inside, touching her like he used to.

They lay holding hands, even death couldn't do them apart.

#Love
Drabble Published on @win-a-kindle about 3 years ago

He came like autumn and she flew like a dry leaf. Not dreaming, not expecting, kept flying like a lifeless leaf. Her path had no light, her face had no charm. He had that grin and his path those motives. She felt passion when he was preying. She felt warmth when he was counting. Still her path is dark, still her face has no charm. Still he is going like autumn and still he is preying in her dreams. Then why he cooks for her and she eats with a smile? Why he shouts and she laughs at him? Love?

Childhood Sweethearts

"You spilled ketchup on my shirt!?" " Because you slapped me.!" "That's because you untied my hair on the day of the class photograph!?!?"
They kept recounting innumerable incidents of fighting, making up and yet being in love all along, while their children giggled at what Ma and Pa looked like when they were 8.
