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.

I am never satisfied with what I have, and never Doubt on what I can conquer. I do not just look only in straight direction, because the world of wisdom is walking beside me and I also discover the sully soul on my other side, I am a camouflage of both. I turn around and try to walk backward to see what I keep within, deep, behind my back and accept the strokes wind puts on my face and make myself ready to get shocked any moment in life, because Things will change their shape and dimension in coming years, Good will become bad and bad will become the best. because it is what I have seen yet. Even me will not remain me, but my instinct will never change neither my love for certain things. So I surge up into the territory of stars, out of this world and try to find who I am today ?
