Meetings - A Short Story

Meetings - A Short Story

My new bike halted just in front of her with a screeching sound. She looked lovely in the red dress, a tinge of it's colour on her face. She smiled sweetly as she sat on the bike behind me. Without talking a word we drove around the empty streets of the city. The city was decorated and lighted only for us. When the sea invited us, we danced together floating in it's water. We laughed insanely and our laughter echoed. The day ended with a special dinner. We dined together on moon.

She had just reached home when her phone beeped. She knew it was a message from him and she was right.
"Thanks for coming, Darling!" She read it aloud and smiled.
She replied to his message. "My pleasure! How about coffee at my place today?"
"Hmmm, nice idea!" He responded.
"See you soon then!" She replied and rushed to her bedroom.

I was ready in my best dress. A fragrance spread across everywhere and I knew he was at the door. We sipped coffee slowly looking into each other's eyes. Then we walked along the beach, hand in hand. We roamed around in the forest watching lions, tigers, elephants and deer. We flew together, landing in a flamboyant island and chased each other playfully. Exhausted, we lied down on the exotic bed beneath the sky. We talked all night watching the bright stars and trying to count them.

She woke up feeling fresh. She took her phone and messaged him.
"It was a lovely meeting as usual!"
"Tell me all about it" He replied.

They were separated by distance. But neither of them had any grievance over their long distance relationship. They held their meetings in their dreams, slipping from actuality to dreams and back to actuality as per their wish. The dreamscapes they created for themselves were wonderful and beyond the magical world of fairy tales. They lived their lives in dreams, controlling them.

  1. Welcome to Blog-a-Ton!

    Yes, I agree with you. True love means being separated and still nothing changes. To be true, in the first paragrah, I thought this is just another story, but you gave it a beautiful meaning! Salute to your talent. All the best for BAT!

  2. A nice surprise ending to your story. Dreams are powerful, but I think you would have to be very strong to make do with a mirage. Especially for a man.

  3. Oh, I liked the twist. Yes, if the love is true, then they can meet in dreams and feel like they are/ together though they are apart. But I agree with Francene. It wouldn't be acceptable forever. Welcome to BAT.
