Both moved further. One year passed by. They were not in touch with each other.
Just two days before her birthday at around 9:00 PM, she received a call in common room of hostel. Till the time she ran and picked up the call, it was disconnected.
She already had a talk with her family. Who else can call her at the hostel number at this time? She was thinking and thinking. There was no repeat call for next 30 minutes. Only person she could think of was him.
Those 30 minutes made her walk back into memories into that sweet short span love. Somewhere inside her heart, she cried. She just hope to hear his voice once. The dormant love of last one year was ready to erupt into volcano of emotions. She had taken a strong decision and she has been strong for that one year. That one missed call disturbed the strong rock girl.
After 30 min, the call came back again. With shivering hands and jumping heart she picked up the phone and said hello. HELLO HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
On the other she could hear the voice. The tear rolled down her eyes.
It was one of her hostel friends, who has been to home for some urgent work, NOT HIM.
She talked to her friend for 2 minutes only, ran back to her room and just blasted into tears. She cried, cried and cried unstoppable for hours. It seemed like she was holding those tears for one year.
Her friends tried to console her, but she could not hold her tears today. Unless, one of her close friend slapped her, hugged her and made her realize that it is over.
That was a long but important night. Sometimes it becomes necessary to unlock yourself and cry. It is a type of rejuvenation.
