The Fallen Leaf

June 19, 2010
It’s been a week since I saw him last. It seems like yesterday. I remember how he looked. He wore that blue shirt I absolutely love. His hair was all messy, he had not slept all night. I could tell by the way he looked at me that something was terribly wrong. His brown eyes were filled with concern. My heart couldn’t bear that look. Sure, I had seen that look before but it was never this serious. I kept trying to ask him, “What’s wrong baby?” He wouldn’t tell me. He just kept looking at me, holding me in his hands.

I lie down here, falling on and off sleep. Without him, life is meaningless. I am a fallen leaf, an empty vase. I feel as if my heart would collapse, as if this darkness will engulf me.

June 23, 2010
It all started when we decided to take the next big step in our relationship. These things are never easy. But I knew I could trust him. I loved him. And I knew, he loved me. Nothing could go wrong. But it did. I don’t blame him. I know in my heart, he must have tried his best to save me. It’s just that sometimes life is not fair.

I worry for him. He must be lost without me. There has not been a single day in the past 2 years that he did not meet me, did not hold me in his arms.

I miss him. I don’t care what happened, anymore. I am ready to forget it all. If only he would come back.  If only I could hear his voice once more, feel his touch around me. If only things would go back to being the way they were.

I opened my eyes, and there he was! Oh! He looked so amazing. His face glowed and his eyes glittered. How dearly I love him! How his touch gives meaning to my very essence. “I missed you so much! I knew you would come back for me.” I said.

He looked at me like he had never seen me before, like I was the most beautiful thing in the world. He stared at me lovingly, held me in his hands, and told me how much he missed me. “Thank god! Finally! I managed to boot you up! I am so sorry! I will never try to install windows on you ever again!“, He said.

I love you baby, no matter what..” I told him.

He picked me up in his arms and headed towards home.

The dream last night – A puzzle story

Heres a silly story i wrote today. I have jumbled it all up! See hints at the end.

  • A butterfly was fluttering around the garden. The cat saw it, jumped on it and scared it!! Bad cat!!!
  • I was so so scared. But then I saw the snowman was wriggling around in my garden and squishing all the pretty flowers. Aaarggghh.. That made me mad and I shouted at him!! He was taken aback, got scared and melted right then and there!
  • I started putting on my shoes in a hurry. (I couldn’t leave them my behind, they were so pretty! )
  • I was outside in my garden, sitting happily and sipping a cup of tea on my fancy table.
  • But just as I was about to make my exit, a very scary  snowman entered my garden!! It went after the tiger.. the tiger whimpered like the cat and ran away..
  • I put on my glasses to make sure that I am not seeing things!! But I was right!!
  • But then came the roar!!! Raaaaaaaoouurrrrrrr!! The cat shrieked and ran away! There was a tiger in my garden!!!
  • And then I woke up 😀
  • Then came the cat. It rushed after the bird and scared it!
  • As I basked in the glory and danced around in my garden.. I realized something was staring at me from far away. I stood still. I kept quiet. It started moving towards me.. For a while I couldn’t make out what it was.. It was all hazy.. and then I saw it.. a white glistening scull.. moving towards me.. slowly.. constantly.. I went numb.. it kept moving.. indefinitely..
  • It was early in the morning.
  • I saw a pretty bird, it was dancing around happily.

Hints:

  • Reorder
  • Notice the bold words in the sentences.
  • Checkout the picture i drew last night, on which my story is based:

And here is the answer:

It was early in the morning. I was outside in my garden, sitting happily and sipping a cup of tea on my fancy table.

I saw a pretty bird, it was dancing around happily. Then came the cat. It rushed after the bird and scared it! A butterfly was fluttering around the garden. The cat saw it, jumped on it and scared it!! Bad cat!!! But then came the roar!!! Raaaaaaaoouurrrrrrr!! The cat shrieked and ran away! There was a tiger in my garden!!! I put on my glasses to make sure that I am not seeing things!! But I was right!!! I started putting on my shoes in a hurry. (I couldn’t leave them my behind, they were so pretty! ).
