    He now opened his eyes completely and saw greenery everywhere. Birds chirping and cows mooing. He then saw Preethi talking to him from the driver's seat "Amit, we've reached! Look at the morning Sunshine in my town! Now get ready to become a pot vendor, you boy!! Looks like the whole night you were into extremely deep sleep.. Where were you lost? Did I come in your dream??" asked Preethi with a wink.
    Amit could barely understand what Preethi was talking about.. He was still puzzled if it was his reality or he was still in his dream! He didn't utter a word.. He couldn't sense his own consciousness guiding him.. He closed his eyes again..Yet, he could hear his name being called "Amit..Amit". He covered his ears as he felt it wasn't his reality!! Still the voice continued to "Amit..Amit..wake up it's time for office.. How could you sleep for so long last night.. It's 7 o'clock now, my dear hubby.. Come out of your dream already!!" shouted Ruthuja with her usual sweetness in such a way to not disturb her little son still asleep.

    A fully sanitized, all-white room with bright sunlight spreading out in shades from the windows decorated with white curtains. "Amit, how are you feeling now?" asked the doctor. Amit was lying on a hospital bed coloured white coated with a white bedsheet. "Amit, you'd been in Coma the past 8 months and by God's grace we saw a voluntary movement in your body three days ago and we were sure enough about you regaining your conscious at the earliest..And here you are, back to your senses today.. How are you feeling my young man?☺️ Amit...Amit.." called the doctor...Amit was not able to open his eyes completely. He barely shook his head, trying to open his eyes that were being hit hard by the rays of morning sun. He could sense a faint image of a hand moving over his right shoulder and calling out his name very mildly "Amit.. Amit".

    She was constantly weeping, not with the pain of her body but with a fear of Amit leaving this world. What just happened?It was a very smooth drive.. Where did that truck appear from? Why did this happen?? Amit wake up..Amit wake up..Amit wake uppppp....Consoling herself she rushed to the hospital along with rescuers. They took both of them to the casualty and looked for the doctor's arrival. Even with her wounds, Preethi did not stop her attempt of waking him up from his unconscious state but everything was in vein when the doctors declared him to have gone into a vegitative state due to heavy loss of blood in the brain area..She cried.. She cried her heart out!!! It was a shock - a complete shock for her as it seemed as if he slipped into coma right from his sleep last night..!!

    A complete silence ~~~ ☄️

    There was only the sounds of night creatures like crickets, the bugs, the frogs and many more insects partnered with the swooshing breeze. Preethi was on her drive crossing the main High way link to the town with her happiness sleeping beside her. Time was ticking and as she drew her mind from the windshield to her watch, within a fraction of second a high speed tanker from the left side road crashed directly into their car!!!!!! Sqwaashhhhh The car swivelled and toppled onto the adjacent road.. Tanker disappeared, leaving behind the two unconscious bodies lying on the road one beside the other...
    After an hour or two, Preethi regained her consciousness. She woke up to Amit lying as if he was still asleep..As if he never got into any disaster...As if everything was at peace ☺️.. By then the town had opened its eyes to witness the dawn.. People rushed to her rescue, they called an ambulance immediately. They provided water and helped her take him to the nearest hospital.

    Wall clock in their bedroom struck 6 in the morning, the sound of which brought Ruthuja back to her senses from the fearful memory of 15 days ago.. She slowly shook Amit hoping he would wake up from his last night's sleep but to her surprise he did not show any signs of it. She was now worried and immediately called up to her neighbour to get some help. Her mind was repeatedly screaming out the words of that mystery man aloud. Is it coming true? Who was he? Why did he tell that? Amit wake up..Amit wake up.. Amit wake upppp........Consoling herself she rushed to the hospital along with her neighbour Uncle Bhat in his car. They took him to the casualty and looked for the doctor's arrival. Ruthuja did not stop her attempt of waking him up from his dreams but everything was in vein when the doctors declared him to have gone to a vegitative state..She cried.. She cried her heart out!!! It was a shock - a complete shock for her as he slipped into coma right from his sleep last night..!!

    That night at about 11'o clock their journey began. Since it was a working day, they couldn't leave earlier than that. Also, both of them wanted to cherish their lovely time together amidst the long drive. So, they decided to take breaks, have lots of tea, pakodas in the Dhaba, share the rides and experience the journey entirely with a perfectly half crescent moon and the grey clouds following them all along in the cold breezy night! ☄️☄️

    It was a calming journey away from the city roads for both drivers. At about 2 o'clock, Preethi suggested Amit to let her drive so that he can take some rest. As agreed, handing over the wheels to her, Amit put on the seat belts of the seat beside the driver's. He tried hard to keep himself awake to accompany Preethi while driving but poor thing fell asleep without his knowledge. Preethi smiled at his innocent face and continued the drive. ☺️

    With a half green signal, Amit agreed to Preethi's condition and was all set to meet his in-laws in Thilavalli town. It was a small town about 250 kms away from their city. So, they decided to go by his car. "Wait, you said your family was slightly conservative and now you are taking me to them directly. What do I answer when they ask 'what I'm I to you'? Will they be ok with a Male friend?" asked Amit with so many question marks on his face. Preethi, with a wide smile, answered "Don't worry Amit, you just have to say you are a vendor of pottery works. You deal with modern art and has come on visit to check out some designs in the town" He stopped her in between with a grumpy face "So, basically I'm going to my in-law's house to buy pots?" Preethi adorably replied "Only if you buy pots, you will get their girl" "Well, pyaar ke liye kuch bhi karna padtha hai!! I'm ready, get me some Lungi, shirt and slippers!" jokingly said Amit for which he received back a bad stare by Preethi

    Ruthuja couldn't believe her eyes! She was shivering to death while suddenly out of the blue erupted an ugly looking hairy man with a long stick and some leaves stuck to it. He looked perfectly like a Tanthrik!!He came to her from the side window and shouted with a weird cracked voice "Look! It's a perfectly half moon!! Don't let your husband go into dreams today!! If you do, think you have lost him!! I repeat - not on a perfectly half crescent moon.. Hu ha ha ha!! He disappeared! ☄️ Within just a few seconds everything was calm and quiet again.... and then she saw Amit waking up. Thankfully he wasn't injured but was shocked with the situation and had fallen unconscious.....

    Aman was fast asleep on the back seat whereas Ruthuja was keeping up her pace of dialogues to keep Amit awakened while driving.They talked about the peaceful life back at the town, their childhood, how they first met, how they fell in love, how they had to convince their parents to let them tie the knots and then the complications they had to face during Aman's birth..... Well, it was all a bumpy roller coaster ride.. (Both of them sighed bringing themselves back to reality)... By then, watch ticked 2 o'clock while suddenly........suddenly there was a jerk and Amit lost control!!!!! He smashed the brakes so intensely that his head hit the steering wheels and he fell unconscious. Ruthuja almost slipped down from her seat but was held hard by the seat belts. Meanwhile, little Aman had a swift fall but since he was completely wrapped up inside the rocker kit he was not injured much
    It all happened just within a blink of an eye!

    Amit was into deep sleep on his bed beside Ruthuja. However, Ruthuja did not fall asleep that night as she couldn't take off her mind from the mystery man's words that kept revolving about her sweaty forehead. Her brain kept repeating those words numerous times sliding her memory to that frightening night. That night while they were in their car returning from their native Thilavalli town after the 'mundan' ceremony of their son. It was a happy traditional ceremony in the family temple with about 20 people witnessing the auspiciousness of the little boy Aman getting a clean head to tap☺️ He kept crying all the while until Ruthuja fed him with some milk and payasam offered by the Priest. After the ceremony, Ruthuja's mother insisted them on halting for a day but Amit did not have leave at office. So, they convinced the family to somehow let them get back into their car after a good tasty dinner.
    They felt relaxed and bid farewell to their parents starting the journey back home about 11 o'clock in the night. It was a cold breezy night with a perfectly half crescent moon and grey shiny clouds following them.

    Few moments later...Bringing himself back to reality, he said "Preethi, these are really commendable! Absolutely, fantastic just like you.. You definitely have a prominent potential in turning this skill into a boom.. What a piece of art! I'm totally in love with your works Preethi.. I'm totally in love with your talent... I'm totally in love with you Preethi.....shitt!!..." He finished and quickly looked away as if he never said that!! "Ah! Amit..?!" calling him she wanted to reconfirm "Did I hear it right?" With his cheeks completely turning into a tomato he whispered "Ah..Well, yes and I would like to hear a Yes in return too, Preethi".. She laughed, she laughed out so loud looking at the way Amit was blushing confessing his love. She said "Amit, I already sensed this. I knew something like this would certainly happen today. Therefore, I was all prepared with my answer. Before I say yes, I would like you to visit my hometown and meet my family once. Only with their consent for our union, I can become yours.."

    Days went on and the 'thing' which started with just a glance over coffee turned out to be a meet over coffee and then into getting closer to becoming the best of friends with feelings for one another. It was almost close to getting into a relationship and one day...
    Amit was always fascinated with Preethi's artwork. So, he insisted on showing him her works. He also thought this would be a perfect time for him to confess his love for her. He hoped to get a big YES from her just like the way she'd given it to her passion. Finally it was the day he got prepared for. She took him on a tour over her balcony where she had maintained all her beautiful art works. Some coloured, some muddy shaded and so many other varieties. Amit was completely mesmerized with all of her works to an extent that he failed to remember about his idea of proposal to her

    A thousand miles

    A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step, i remembered my father telling me, before i took on a thousand miles. Times were tough, and i knew my little girl needed me . I could see her face gazing through the window waiting for me, a thousand miles south. But, never did I think that this journey would send me a thousand miles away from her . What did i do, i thought to myself as my tears poured over her from a thousand miles above.

    Meanwhile, Amit always had an eye on Preethi. Ofcourse, who wouldn't have one when the personality itself was so attractive ☺️ Although Amit liked Preethi, he never confessed his feelings for her. He watched her chitchat with her friends over coffee everyday but never hurried to take a step forward. Perhaps, he thinks Preethi is still unaware of whatever is going on behind her back. But, she was wise enough to notice every move of Amit just from the side of her eyeballs!

    Preethi works in the Creative Department of the FM radio channel in which Amit works as an RJ. This girl from a small town had stepped into this big city to make her own fame with her intelligence and creativity. The pretty face was not just creative in the field of radio but also had a passion for Pottery. Yes, Preethi spends most of her leisure in modern pottery, making artistic pots and many different clay works. She was born and brought up in a small town where there were many people into pottery and this cultivated an interest in her towards clay works which then turned into her side hustle. She absolutely was very fine with her works.. There were a lot of calls coming to her requesting her to join them but Preethi stood true to her profession and never bothered to leave aside radio.

    Moments later enters Preethi... A smile that shines brighter than the moon.. With a pony tail spreading out from the left of her shoulder.. Wearing a white cotton shirt and a blue denim perfectly matched to it, she saw him from a distance, yet did not react much like everyday.
    "Oh ho! something's fishy bro. Why hasn't she reacted much today?" Just as one of the friends finished, one more responded "I think she's got somebody else now..No wonder she's started ignoring you bruh!" Yet Amit did not pay much heed to his friends' words. He went on to finish his coffee keeping his calm to watch Preethi become his soulmate one day!
