‘Be mine’ he said, for the umpteenth time.
She scowled but stayed right there.
‘This is where you belong’ he said.
She looked away.. she still stayed put.
‘Don’t you like me?’ He raised his eyebrows..
‘No. Stop it, will you?’ She frowned.
He smiled and took her hands in his..
‘Why are you still here, then?’ He smiled again.
She pushed his hands away and glared at him.
‘ I am sorry’ he said, guilt evident in his eyes..
‘I am scared ‘
A tear ran down her cheek..
‘I like you.. more than you can ever imagine’ she whispered.
Another tear rolled down her cheek.
‘Please don’t. I am sorry’ he said.
He got up to leave.
He had only walked a few steps,
And she ran upto him.
‘Here, keep them’ she waved her hand in front of him.
‘What?’ He looked around, confused.
‘These’ she held both her hands in the air, for him to hold.
‘This is where they probably belong!’ she looked at him wide-eyed.
