I went close to Riya. In a matter of time only a thin layer of the cool winds, blowing all around, separated us. We started to gradually surrender ourselves to reflexes. The ambience was acting as a catalyst to spice up the unpredictable responses. The silence all around was making us unconscious of our surroundings. The chilly night was igniting our emotions. My reluctance and Riya’s guilt took back-stage. My past also went blank for a while. I could see only Riya in front of me. I wanted to hug her. I stretched my hands for her. She didn’t refuse to. We hugged each other. I felt, I was melting. The passion quotient in me was reaching its zenith point. Her contours embraced mine tightly.
"Is love, person-specific, or the outcome of some appropriate situations? Can love happen more than once? Can love only be classified if it is successful?" –Page 62
