To read the previous moments, please refer Part-1.
Even after reading that 100 characters message for fifth time, Shanaya could not believe herself.
I have moved in with Kristy. Cannot wait for you. Sorry for missing those calls.
Her tears mixed up with rain flow and flew down without efforts. She could not decide what she should do. After taking support of nearby chair, she dropped herself on it and covered her eyes with palms. There was something breaking inside her heart and she was not able to tolerate the pain. After all, her belief about love was violated today. They say it rightly –
Only those who go through heart break, know what slow dying means.

Shanaya felt like she was losing her life. She tried hard to stop tears but maybe her mind gave different orders and neither heart nor mind was in control. Slowly, she stood up and looked around. The dark sky was clear after that little drizzle and people were moving around. Nothing changed, she thought to herself, rather than my life. She thought to call Patrick but her feminine ego denied to obey the idea. It’s been just 2 months and Patrick had already moved in with another girl. Why should I call him and beg him? Why should I show him that I am dying without him? Her heart argued.
So strange this feeling called LOVE is.
At one moment, you want to forget the whole world for other person and on other moment, you just don’t want to communicate with that person.
May be Love has more to do with head rather heart.
Her thoughts were faster than her sight
Her foot were faster than her mind
Her condolence to herself was slower than the slowest thing in the world.
Nothing was effective.
For her, it was not easy as Patrick. She whole heartedly loved Patrick and never thought of anyone else. Love was a permanent feeling for her. She thought, she will never be able to forget Patrick.
Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone whom you never met
She was walking fast towards her hotel while telling herself “everything will be fine”, but tears were not following the words. She saw lights of the church shining and she ran in. After looking at Jesus, she could not control and cried hard. Fortunately, the evening and Shanaya both were lonely inside the church. After lightening her heart, she looked at Jesus again. He was still smiling, kindly. And suddenly, she felt like her Maa was beside her and was telling her the same phrase – everything will be fine. That virtual company of Maa felt like a soothing balm. She closed her eyes and sat there for few minutes in killing silence. And a new Shanaya was born. She had a little smile on her face. She returned to beach road, took charge of her parked bike and started paddling it. For almost one and half hours, she just paddled and roamed around the French colony, while trying to bury every memory of Patrick. Finally tired and hungry, she got into her hotel room and fell down on bed. For the first time, since last few nights, she slept tight, without bad dreams of Patrick going away from him. After all, he had already gone.
When you accept something, life becomes easy.
Shanaya had accepted Patrick’s absence in her life and life was beautiful again. The new day, the new sun and the new Shanaya were ready to explore the world again!!!
