It was her engagement and a gathering of associated family and close friends. There was a delicious black current cake as a witness of celebration. She had got some awesome presents and day was going just fine. Just when everything started looking fine, the phone rings. It was awkward because she had stopped using that SIM from a long time as it had some unwanted associated memories. Moreover the call was from an unknown number.
She was hesitant enough to pick the call. ‘Why did I not destroy this long ago?’ was the torturing question in her mind. It was her old dedicated SIM to whom she had assumed was love of her life. She did not wanted it to be him, the long past love, for whom she had spent months to overcome the sadness. He had longed for a break up in spite of all her begging’s and he never told a reason for the case. The ring from unknown number had freaked her out as she had finally moved on and engaged to another seeking true love.
Her hand had an engagement ‘ring’ which was joyous and cell phone which was giving out a ‘ring’ which made her miserable. This guy, with whom she was engaged, who already knew her past clearly noticed her anxiety, came running to her and exclaimed,
‘Oh! It’s me who has called you to your old number from my new number! I want to change your every sadness to happy ones and I want to start with this. Until we get married we shall interact using this contact and make better memories. Let’s replace old ones with new fresh and blissful ones.’
She silently had a few tears.
