Love Undefined - Chapter 2


Please don't leave us.... Please.. Please reconsider your----- Radha wake up, Narayan was rattling her violently trying to bring her back to senses. Radha slowly opened her eyes and tears started rolling down her cheeks. It was just a dream, she cried. I am having this same dream ever since he left us, she spoke as she wiped the tears. Narayan who himself was going through an emotional turmoil couldn't find words that would comfort his wife. After a long silence, he spoke. Listen Radha, he might be married, he might be a hundred miles away , but nothing can shake the fact that he's our son. More than anything, I am bothered about your health right now. You have not eaten properly since he got married and you are always having a disturbed sleep. This is definitely not a good sign. Please stop worrying. He was terribly worried. Ever since Tarun got married, she was losing her identity. There have been terrible moments in my life when your smile did wonders, he spoke as he switched on the bedside lamp. Your mere presence makes me feel that there is nothing to be worried about as long as you are there to support me. My pillar of support. The agony that your eyes convey these days is very depressing. My wife who has always been so determined and stayed strong cannot be so vulnerable,he spoke with his eyes fixed on hers.  Venting out definitely eases out the pain, she thought. She was feeling better now. She looked around to see what time it was. The clock struck 4. She was in no mood to go back to sleep. She decided to get up and make some coffee. The day being Sunday, she was way too excited. It was on this day, that she will get to skype with her son. 

As she poured coffee for herself and her husband, she chuckled. Do you remember his first day at school? He happily bid goodbye to us while the other kids were crying so hard that their tears would fill up a pond. Oh yeah, he never fails to surprise us, Narayan exclaimed. When I went to pick him up, the teacher kept telling me about how he consoled other kids not to cry. Radha could see Narayan's eyes beaming with pride and she couldn't help but smile.
I will go prepare breakfast. Its already late and I cannot afford to lose that few minutes I get to see my son , she spoke as she hurried into the kitchen. No sooner she was done preparing breakfast for the two. Her hunger was lost in her excitement and hence she quickly filled her stomach not really bothered about what she is eating. The clock stuck 8 :00 AM. She sprinted down the hall towards the computer and switched it on hastily. She has been using it ever since her son went abroad for education and she still has trouble operating it. Why doesn't the mouse click twice when I do it, she shouted with a frustrated tone. He would be waiting for us and here I am fiddling with this thing, she thought. After about 10 minutes, she manages to login only to find that he was not on-line yet. Exactly when she started to get worried, the telephone rang. Narayan picked it up and it took her very few seconds to guess that it was her son on-line. She rushed towards the phone and before she could even reach, Narayan hung up. Why did you hang up so soon? She shouted.  Is he coming on-line now? She kept talking without a pause. Arey wait Radha, let me fill you in.Looks like they have planned a weekend trip and he called up to say that he cannot skype today.Tarun said he will talk to us when they get back. He seemed to be in a hurry and hence I hung up, Narayan explained. Hearing this, her jaw dropped. The only thing that makes me happy is that I get to see him every Sunday and now even that is being taken away from me. Fine I will live with this, she cried and she rushed into the bedroom..
