I was resting on my rocking chair while sipping hot chocolate mocha to sod off the menacing solace of recent relationship breakup. I was crying loud from inside but could not pass it out through my eyes as I was pretending brave, indeed deceiving myself.
Looking at the dark orange sky from my rustic window pain, I could feel every movement of the tired sun setting down to unwind onto the ocean bed. Living in the world of my sore reminiscences I was bound to praise nature for its spell binding glory while the caresses of cold wind were trying to heal my agony. Deep in my senses, I was pleading to get rid of this sharp emotional knife which was stabbing my heart incessantly since last one week. And I finally got up from my chair to get my laptop, ending up booking the air tickets for the next day to some pacifying destinations irrespective of their distance from Mumbai, as all I desired at that point of time was respite.
I picked up my backpack that was waiting to come out of the last shelf of my cupboard as I hardly got the chance to travel around, courtesy my frantic professional schedule. While taking out my running shoes with 5 pairs of tees and comforting jeans I used to wear during my college days, in hope to relive that happy phase. Shimoga, Mawphlang, Idukki, Runn of Kutch and Ashwem topped my list of travel fantasy as I was yearning to visit these for a long time.
That night seemed the longest of all as I could barely had a wink of an eye. Tossing from right to left with my pillow I was waiting to board the flight to run away from my melancholies. As soon as the first sacred ray of shinning sun peeped into my window, I jumped out of bed to gear up for the unexpected blessing in disguise as I was hopeful.
Once I was through with all the picks, my fingers rushed to book the cab and I was 5 minutes far to board into the ride to a new life. The cab driver seemed as an elf of optimism to me and there started the very step to live up my dream. I was counting in seconds as the roads passing away through the side view mirror of the cab forced me to believe that my pains are vanishing away too.
