Born Again - Chapter 5


Go GOA!! 365 days on a holiday……!!!! Anubhav exclaimed as he walked down from the sea towards the sea bench where Bhumi was sitting. He came next to her and seated himself on the bench beside her. She smiled and handed him a towel to clean his body.



“So how are you finding GOA?” she asked Anubhav….



“Refreshing and rejuvenating!!! I must say it was a very good choice of a holiday!!” Anubhav replied



 Bhumi: “It is, so what happened between you and Selly?”



Anubhav: “Nothing much, what did she tell you?” replied sheepishly



Bhumi: “Well nothing as such, I just happened to meet her accidentally at the Iscon Mall the day before we left for GOA and she seemed out of sorts. No make up, no more the bubbly ness or the energy she just seems like she was very SAD”



Anubhav: “How can that be attributed to me?”



Bhumi: “Cos, she told me everything!! She told me how she had fallen in love with you and how you had spurned her” Her voice intensified as she continued: “Anubhav, I thought you were a nice guy just a little reserved…. But I never knew that you were a heartless idiot…..”



Anubhav: “Hello, mind your language; you can’t reach at a decision without hearing both the sides of the story. I never said that I don’t love her. I just told her that you don’t know me enough to Love me. In only two meetings you can only get attracted and not fall in love”



Bhumi: “It only takes one glance……” she would have continued but she saw Sanjay coming and stopped



Sanjay: “So what is the discussion going on?” He asked as he came and seated himself next to Bhumi



Anubhav: ”Well we were just discussing how beautiful the beach is and how refreshing it is to be here, Sanju, thank you so much!!!”



Sanjay: “You’re always welcome, So, now you appreciate that all the good things in life are meant to enjoy.”



Anubhav: “Yeah!!! I guess ……..now I would appreciate.”

“Come on now we r getting late we have to get ready for dinner…” Bhumi said getting up



*****************************************************************************************

Basking in the glory of Moon light on the balcony little did Bhumi realize that Sanjay was standing behind her, he stealthily came from behind and held her in her arms…….



“Oh my God!!!” Bhumi exclaimed shock!!! “I didn’t know you were there.”  …….



“I just came now and saw my chand enjoying the chandni….” Sanjay replied romantically…



Bhumi looked in his eyes and their lips locked. The nature also admired the two of it’s most beautiful inmates making love. Sanjay carried her to the bed and switched of the lights.



The next day morning he was woken up by bright sun light that fell on his eyes  as Bhumi drew the curtains aside….



“Good Morning, Darling!!!” Bhumi smiled….



“Mornings are never good till the time I get a kiss.” Sanjay replied sleepily.



Bhumi went across to the bed and bent down to kiss him. Sanjay quickly grabbed her in his arms and kissed her all over. Bhumi responded to his passionate kissing by kissing her man back. Both their lips were locked for eternity and Sanjay started massaging her boobs. Both of them enjoying the marital bliss for what it seemed to be eternity, silently they broke the kiss and embraced each other in a tight lock and Bhumi hid her face in Sanjay’s arms and said “It just reminds me of our honey moon days isn’t it.”



Sanjay: “Yes Honey, somewhere in the busy life of Ahmedabad our romance seems to have lost. It just gets difficult to spend time with you, to enjoy your beauty, to say that I LOVE you, to spend hours in your arms……”



He would have continued but a faint knock on the door. Quickly both of them got up and Sanjay disappeared in the bathroom while Bhumi adjusted her clothes and opened the door. It was Anubhav….



They exchanged an uncomfortable stare before AB spoke: “Er… I thought you guys must be ready for break fast. I just thought of coming over to go along with you..”



Sanjay replied from the bathroom: “Why don’t the two of you push off, I’ll just join you in a bit…”



Bhumi: “It’s OK!! We’ll wait for you…” she clearly wanted to avoid any further discussions with Anubhav post yesterday’s argument and motioned to AB: “You may want to carry on we’ll just join you..”



Before AB could reply Sanjay’s voice came from Bathroom: “You guys carry on I’ll join you.”



Bhumi pondered about it for a while and said: “Fine, we’ll go but you don’t take long.” – It is better not to give an impression of Sanjay that I am trying to avoid AB – She thought and made a move towards the door….



At the break fast table both of them sat with an unpleasant silence surrounding them which Anubhav broke as if trying to stitch together the conversation from where they left it yesterday



“Listen, all said to Selly was that she doesn’t know me enough and it takes a lot of understanding and knowledge of each other in order to say that we are in love. Her feelings towards me can be called as infatuation or attraction and not love, but then the situation could have gotten out of hands and hence preferred to leave.”



Bhumi remained silent for a while wondering whether she should speak or not and after much deliberation she couldn’t hold herself back and said: “See AB, sometimes it takes years to be in love, sometimes it’s just a glance…..you may be correct but you could have atleast said that you were ready give the relationship a chance….unless you give a relationship a chance you will never know whether it would work or not…” AB got up and started to stare towards the sea from the glassed wall of the restaurant as if trying to absorb what Bhumi was saying….she continued….: “AB give it chance, who knows she might be the missing love in your life….you need someone to be much closer to you than me or Sanju….maybe she might be the person who would could help you through this phase of depression…” she paused as AB turned towards her slowly trying to gather his thoughts before he could speak……



“I think you are right…let me give it shot…I was thinking from mind but these matters are better thought from Heart!!!” AB replied seemingly convinced with her argument.



She always is” Sanjay said coming from behind and seating himself beside her. He heard only the last part and was seemingly interested in the discussion and said…”So wat were you two talking about…”



“Bhumi and I were discussing Selly……She proposed me and I…” AB tried to reply and Bhumi interrupted: “And he walked out on her!!”



“What!!” Sanju said with a shock surprise in his voice “You must be a fool doing that AB…my GOD just look at her……she is a damsel….and you walked out on her.”



He could not digest the fact that AB could do something like this…



“Yeah, I was not sure what to do, haven’t been in such a situation before so could really connect, look you must be thinking I am out of my mind or something….but to be honest I was not sure… glad that Bhumi gave me the perspective.” AB replied apologetically..



“May be you should talk to her once we reach there tomorrow do let me know if you need my help” ….Sanju winked….”OH and BTW we are planning to go shopping interested…..”  


“Yeah, I think I’ll buy some Kaju for Ramu Kaka”….AB replied as he started his breakfast.
