We sat, side by side as the waves splashed around, the sun shining brightly. The most comforting feeling in the world is sitting beside someone and enjoying the solitude- the silence between us was so comforting. When had I last felt so much at home, not having to put up a face that people wanted to see?
Suzy and I met as toddlers, we became best of friends but life took us on different paths. She wrote letters and I replied back but over time my replies were shorter and one fine day I stopped writing. I had other things in life to look forward to. Her letters about her simple country life were not appealing to a city boy like me.
I realised one day, how foolish I was. My true happiness lay in simple things, among people who loved me for who I am. On an impulse I wrote to her, inviting her for a vacation, just the 2 of us. I wasn’t expecting a reply but she wrote back.
My heart leaped like a child. So here we are- not a couple, not family but 2 souls who are bound to each other in ways which cannot be explained in words.
