“So, its a no?” His eyes were fixated on her face. She never had any control over her expressions – her face spilled the secrets much before her words would join the act.
“You know the situation!” This time, the act was an unenthusiastic euphemism.
“You know me for a long now. You know that I try till the very last moment. Right?” He was born stubborn, and this time, he had a cause for the fight.
The glance was a little longer than the usual one, until it became too much to handle for a pair of eyes.
“I’ll say, don’t try too hard this time.” A sigh first sliced thick silence in the room, and the words just followed the cut.
“Okay” That was a very quick reaction to the blow just received.
“Why are you smiling?” She was puzzled now. She didn’t expect explosions, but a tinge of anger and frustration for sure. Smile, wasn’t indeed the expected response.
“You said don’t try hard. You didn’t say don’t try.” The smile was converting into a laughter.
“You are impossible” She was still confused about his response.
“Even you know how something is going to end, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ride. Right?” Stolen quote, but the charm was real. And so were the shades of calmness in his eyes.
“So, the usual tea and walk?” The smile was back on her face as well.
The tremors were felt by both the hearts thoroughly, and yet the feet danced the road like it was ‘business as usual’.
