Day 19. Assurance


They were the best friend of the street. He discovered the joy of spending time with her in a tree house. She shared with him endless thriller stories of her city, most of which were made up by her. He shared the collection of books he had and read the same joke twice just because it made her laugh. She brought delicious lunch box prepared by her mother for him.

She prepared a fake tea and he took long sips through an imaginary cup. He took a big stone from the street and gifted it to her as the most comfortable chair in the world. She would sit on that when she got tired after playing and running around the street. They had collected some carved stones and coloured glasses which they used to decorate their tree house.

In the evening they explored the garden nearby, he collected dry tree leafs and covered her with it. Sometimes they made kites themselves and ran together while holding kites in hands. Sometimes She sang loudly and he danced in a funny manner. He told him about the big market of his town and the delicious thing they can find to eat there. But they were too afraid to leave the street by their own. Whenever he went to market with his father , he always brought some candies for her.

They were summer friends , She had came to his neighbourhood for summer vacations and spent whole summer playing with him. They were inseparable until the summers came to an end. She told him where she lives but he did not know where her city was. They were sad as they had lot to do with their treehouse and carved stones. She promised to come back again , maybe in next summers. He assured that he will wait.

She departed one morning in a white ambassador with her parents. He started to miss her and wait for next summers to come as soon as possible. On one fine morning, his neighbours moved to a different city, he did not even know where they were going. With the neighbours gone, all the hopes to meet her again was gone. He could never forget those summers and the time he spent in that treehouse with her. He may never meet her again in life and will never know if she missed her or not, but his assurance is safe and deep down in his heart he is still waiting for her , specifically those days to come again and one summer she will come and keep her promise. Or may be she does not even remember those beautiful summer vacations or even what was his name.
