“Looking at the phone and waiting for that one call is an imprudent thing to do when you know the other person doesn’t give a damn. It’s simply a ‘waste’ of time. You should better invest your time on something constructive.” Her mind said in a strict tone.
“No, but you love him right? So what if he is unconcerned. Love doesn’t come with a ‘conditions apply’ tag. It is not revengeful. Take my advice and call him. Don’t wait for anything. What if he’s waiting for your call? I’m sure he is because his love for you is true.” Her heart said.
“It’s all nonsense. If it would have been so true then he would have kept his promise. He said that he would call whenever he comes back home. And you know he is already home. And Look at the time. It’s pretty late. Of course he doesn’t want to call. He doesn’t care. He never did. Don’t you get this easy thing, you silly emotional fool?”
“You will call, I know dear.”
“No, you’ll not. Remember how he hung up the last time. How he talked and what all things he said to you. How coarse he was. He is not interested in talking to you anymore. Accept this fact.”
“Listen to me and call”
And she picked up her phone, dialled the number and waited for him to pick up.
“Hello?” she said
“Yeah” he replied in a harsh tone. Like really HARSH tone.
“You said you’d call. I have been waiting for so long.”
“I forgot. I was studying since I came back.” The tone was still harsh.
She knew he is lying. He didn’t start studying immediately after coming home as she saw him online on facebook...posting stuff on other friends’ wall. She knew he’s faking. This was not him. He has never been this way before and never been so rude to her. His tone, his words and even his sighs made everything clear to her.
“Oh, I’m so sorry for disturbing you. You continue studying. Bye.” She said in a bit shaky voice.
As she hung up the phone, an evil drop ran down her cheeks, eroding all the colours of her life. And all she thought was that: her mind was right...indeed!!
