Had it been any other day i would not have gone there. But that day well i guess i was looking for some trouble. I folowed her in the midst of the hue of the setting sun and then everything went to a standstill.............


Well people never thought that I was a guy who could have done that. Never in my life did I have a bad record and yet something inside me made me scared of myself. That was the restlessness inside me. I was always looking for something new. For something which would make me whole. Which would make me complete, I always used to be like going out sometimes being alone and playing my guitar. When did I ever get involved with her so badly. Married and 31 years of age I wanted some excitement in my life. Something which would make this monotonous life exciting. My wife had gone to her mom\'s place and would be there for the month she said. Something inside me wanted to stop her but then something told me this is the chance to make the most of the time. You are there for something better. Well I never knew that this better would lead to this. After she left I felt great for the next five to six days. I went out and met my friends. Went out for a drink and well everything was going on fine until one day myu friends from school dropped in all of a sudden to my place. Seeing them there at my door step well made me feel something which I had not felt for a long time, and yes I was very excited.


They were surprised with my reaction. Dont know why, both of them never married . May be they loved those two girls in college too deeply. But thats a different story. Well they came in and saw that the house empty. All of us smiled. We knew each others grin so properly by now, everything was communicated between without the use of any words. Then we started laughing. We went down the memory lane. Talkig about the past , the times we shared, the laughs we had.


Well this one day we decided to go to a uptown pub. It was the most happening one in Darjeeling - The Buzz. Well live bands people dancing drink everyone was so happy. A small thought came over to me, carla what might she be doing. Well she had really adjusted herself to this new enviroment. Coming from Austrilia and into a new land new people new langauge it had taken her time but she did well. Its not that I dont love my wife. she has been great and everything has been so wonderful, making love trying out different things never really scared her and the kids - angels i could call them. Sweet as anyone could have been, I saw my friends flirting with a few girls in the corner table. I passed a smile to sameer and told him to go ahead. Not that I was intrested, I had the big wedding ring gold 24 caret she told me. Shining out proud and in my hand. I was not complaining I was happy sipping on my fourth or 5th glass of screw driver. Slowelt sipping and watching Sameer chatting with that girl made me think of my wife dont know why. Sipping and high and thinking about things that were so insignificant .................. then she came in ....
