Love after Love!!!

Today ....
"Accept her proposal da, just do it, I can't bear this anymore" Reya was crying within herself. She stood in the corner helplessly watching Sylvi propose to Karthi once again .....


Karthi looked LOST!... He stared at Sylvi, kept the coffee cup in the table and went inside Sylvi's room, he stood staring outside through the window.... 

Sylvi was dejected and her last strands of hope were crushed when Karthi rejected her proposal for the second time....Sylvi knew that Karthi's mind n heart is still full of Reya, but nevertheless she tried, she couldn't see Karthi struggle...

Before ....
Sylvi loved him so much but never had the guts to tell her mind out to Karthi.. they were friends from childhood, they lived in the same community and went to the same school.. Almost everyone in their school and neighborhood friends teased the closeness Sylvi and Karthi shared.

"Don't listen to them Sylvi...." Karthi often told Slyvi..."Our relationship is unique, these folks would never understand"....Karthi never thought of Sylvi being more than a close friend, somehow Slyvi's beautiful eyes didn't attract him...He plainly believed that Sylvi cannot be his beloved....

"No! They are right...If only you knew how much I love you Karthi, I wish you would realize this one day...the day I would be the happiest in this entire universe, the day I would shine brighter than the brightest star, the day I would be in the heavens of heaven..." wrote Slyvi on her personal journal....

Months passed ....

"Hey Sylvi....I have to discuss something important with u....call me tonite....miss u....bye Karthi" Slyvi couldn't control her emotions after she saw this email from Karthi...Her imagination went crazy and she just lived an entire lifetime with Karthi in a split second....Karthi seperated from Slyvi to do his Degree in Medicine a year back...Slyvi missed him so much and hoped that Karthi's seperation would make him realize the love Slyvi had...and may be...may be....propose her....

"Hey Slyvia, are you going out somewhere tonight? You look beautiful in that purple salwar..." Slyvia's Dad saw something different in her daughter...
" No pa, not going out, I got to talk to Karthi tonight.." said Slyvi...

She wished the clock just went straight to 9pm, she couldn't wait to talk to Karthi...Weekends is when Karthi usually calls Sylvi to share on how the week went....Sylvi wished she could talk to him daily, she loved every inch of what Karthi is...His voice, His mannerisms, His gentleness even His anger....Today was Wednesday and Sylvi was ready to press the direct dial icon in her smartphone...She beat the clock by a second to press the button to call Karthi....Her heart was pounding as Karthi's  phone rang on the other end...

"Hey Sylvi,  no one can beat you in punctuality...can you give me 2 mins? my hand is all soiled, will wash my hands and be in a minute..."said Karthi....
"Ok da..." said Sylvi....every second that passed looked like eternity to her....
"Slyvi...back da....ok tell me, how would you propose a girl...?" quizzed Karthi
"How do I know?....Why? Are you in love with someone?..." asked Sylvi with blushes on!
"Yes da...Do you believe?...I never thought I would fall for any girl..." Karthi was sheepish...

Sylvi's cerebral cells flashed her the page in the diary she wrote months back,
"No! They are right...If only you knew how much I love you Karthi, I wish you would realize this one day...the day I would be the happiest in this entire universe, the day I would shine brighter than the brightest star, the day I would be in the heavens of heaven..."


"I didn't realize until today Sylvi...do u remember Reya?....the one who I mentioned to you when I joined the medical school....I just couldn't take her off my mind da....." said Karthi
The world came crashing down for Sylvi....her dreams, her life, her thoughts were all void in a moment....She  couldn't follow or listen to what Karthi told in the next few minutes.... she went absolutely blind....
"What do you say? Should I propose?" finished Karthi...
Sylvi came back to her senses....she has never ever said "No" to Karthi before...With her soul crying she said "Yes Karthi...go for it....She's lucky...."

Back to Today ...
"Sorry Karthi....I didn't mean to hurt you...I just wanted to let you know that I love you no matter what.... I need some time alone, I'll be back before dinner.....Sorry da...." tears rolled off Sylvi's cheeks as she headed out of her apartment.....

Reya watched Sylvi leave with a heavy heart...she could feel it within her....she could feel her soul...she cried even more....she had no options, she couldn't let Karthi know how she felt, how she wanted Karthi to marry Sylvia.

Karthi was confused....puzzled...something inside him made him not accept Sylvi as his partner....He felt Sylvi was just being a nice friend....trying to help him....some sort of empathy....he sat down on the bed tumbling upon a photo frame that went crashing to the floor...he bent down to pick the frame...turned it back to see the glass shattered into zillions of pieces...his eyes lured behind those pieces to see the beautiful smiling face of Reya....with his face to the right of Reya and a delicately smiling Sylvia to his right...for the first time, he saw something different in Sylvia...something unusually different...as he tried to get a better look...the glass pieces sprinkled all over the floor....

He was on the floor cleaning up the mess...when something caught his eye...a old dusted journal was lying in the far end of the bed....He leaned forward and took it...sat on the bed...and opened to the first page....to see the lovely handwriting of Sylvia that screamed.... "Mine and Mine only ......" He turned to the next page that had a old  candy wrapper pasted in it. It read "You took my Candy...but I took your wrapper..."....Karthi's mind went back in time,...he remembered the day...it was Sylvi's birthday and Karthi took the candy and casually threw the wrapper...on the ground which flew with the wind...Sylvi chased it and finally grabbed it ...."I'm collecting wrappers ....a new hobby" she told him that day....Each page had a story that Karthi could remember....he couldn't believe it....tears rolled out involuntarily and uncontrollably....he turned to the page that read,
"No! They are right...If only you knew how much I love you Karthi, I wish ......" But, before he could read, Sylvia entered the room and was shocked to see the glass pieces all over the room.....Reya was still there, without any clue on what is happening with Karthi!


"Hey Karthi....what happened? did you hurt yourself?" ....Sylvi rushed towards him....Karthi stood up and hugged Sylvi tightly and wept on her shoulders uncontrollably.....Sylvi wasn't expecting this....tears rolled off her eyes as she noticed her journal lying on the floor....with the last lines she wrote in that journal....


Reya stood there witnessing this....she cried too....and on this day, She was the happiest person in this entire universe, She was shining brighter than the brightest star, She ascended into the heavens of heaven...

"I can go now...." whispered Reya 

Reya's soul rested in peace!!!
