I grabbed her around her waist and pulled her towards me. I looked at her. Her eyes were closed. She had completely given herself to me. I could feel her heartbeat in my chest. It was throbbing as if Thorâ€™s been beating it. She was breathing as if she was asthmatic. I kissed her right earlobe and whispered, â€œHeyâ€ as if to wake her up from her sexual trance. She didnâ€™t want to lose the moment. She tightened her hug and squeezed me. Thatâ€™s the feeling I wanted. I didnâ€™t want any spaces between our bodies.
I kissed her neck and my hands were discovering her body. Slowly, I loosened the hug and grabbed her face to kiss her. Her eyes were still closed. I put my right arms around her neck, slowly dropped my left hand to her breast and tilted my head to touch her lips with mine. As I touched her lips with mine and fondled her breast, it felt magical. I wanted more and I could feel her wanting more. I pushed her to the bed and crawled towards her lips. I held my body over her, with my arms and continued kissing her. Slowly, I took off her t-shirt and touched her breast over her bra. But then, she threw my hand off her breast. And breaking our kiss, she whispered, â€œHappy kiss day!â€
I rested my head on her chest. I could clearly hear her heartbeat. She pulled me up and I laid across her. Her eyes were passionately staring at me. We could hear ourselves breathe. She leaned towards me and kissed me as she sensed some disappointment.
â€œHey, see, you got your love bites,â€ I pointed to her neck.
â€œI canâ€™t see.â€ She said, tilting her head to see her neck.
â€œHere it is!â€ I touched her neck.
â€œI canâ€™t see,â€ she said childishly.

I woke up from the bed and brought a mirror. She had already worn her t-shirt. I sat on the bed next to her hugging my knees and observed her see love bite.
â€œHow do I hide this?â€ she asked.
â€œUse your scarf.â€
â€œIs your mobile vibrating?â€
â€œWhere is it?â€
I answered the call.
â€œHey, what yaâ€™ doing?â€
â€œI am with Smriti.â€
â€œOh! Having fun then.â€ She started teasing.
â€œHehe, Okay then. I will call laterâ€
I looked at Smriti. She was still trying to hide her love bite. She looked beautiful as always. She had that cute demeanor that made me love her more. We had been in relation for 2 years and every day I felt I wanted more of her in my life.
â€œWhen is she leaving?â€ she asked.
â€œTomorrow.â€ I sulked.
Of course, I wasnâ€™t. Yet I nodded.
â€œOh! It was so hectic day, you know? Meeting friends, visiting relatives, I so hate it.â€ Sukirti said. â€œYet, you manage to meet me. Always! How do you do that?â€ I asked her. She shrugged her shoulder, gave a thinking look and said, â€œYouâ€¦. are different.â€ â€œHow?â€ I asked. â€œYou are very special,â€ she whispered. I smiled. 😉
â€œI wish I could get you in an accident,â€ I said.
â€œHow bad! Why?â€
â€œThen you would stay here. I would bring flowers and fruits to meet you. Wow! Dream of my life.â€
She hit me.
â€œYou will forget me soon. I know your memory,â€ she said. â€œHmm, I should write a eulogy to you, no?â€ I tried being sarcastic. â€œIndeed,â€ she nodded.
We reached our stone chair. There was nothing special about this place. It just happened to be special.
â€œSo, how was your kiss day?â€ she asked.
â€œWe kissedâ€ I smiled.
â€œOnly? What about your friendâ€™s room?â€
â€œWe kissed in that room.â€
â€œAnd Iâ€™m supposed to believe it? Câ€™mon be honest.â€ She raised her brows to mock me.
â€œWe met, went on a date to I-donâ€™t-know-where and I asked my â€˜kiss day-specialâ€™. Went to the room and she said only kiss. And we kissed.â€ I summarized in a single breath. I looked at her. She had that sympathetic look which I hated. â€œAndâ€¦ youâ€¦.â€ She paused and said, â€œonly kissed. How romantic!! 🙂 â€
â€œHmm, why donâ€™t you complete rest of the story? That shall be more romantic.â€ I flirted.
â€œYea, letâ€™s go,â€ She really had a knack for flirting back.
â€œSo, should I bring that?â€ I gave her a cunning look.
â€œOh, please do!â€
â€œBy the way, why is there flavor in a condom?â€ She asked and really seriously.
â€œHow would I know? I never used one.â€

We both laughed. Somehow, we would come up with some funny topics and would flirt and she always knew when to change the topic. We had limits and we never crossed it, thatâ€™s what made us special.
â€œOn promise day, you promised me that you mightnâ€™t always be on my side, but you will always be a reason I shall have to fight back against all odds. That meant a lot, actually.â€ She sounded emotive. â€œAnd you actually rote-learnt it? Seriously?â€ I tried to be funny. â€œThat was actually sweet. You gave me a rose, a chocolate and yeah, a picture of teddy bearâ€ She laughed. I smiled. â€œSo, where is my hug and kiss?â€ She asked.
â€œI sent you a hugging sticker, right?â€
â€œThatâ€™s not a hug.â€
â€œVirtual, it is!â€
â€œI need a real one. You know that rose day, you tweaked my cheeks and ran. You didnâ€™t hear me, right?â€
â€œWhat? You screamed?â€
â€œI screamed, â€˜I need a hugâ€™, but you didnâ€™t hear, you just ran.â€
I was dumbstruck. I just looked at her. She looked through me. I wanted to hug her. But somehow that wasnâ€™t the moment. It was already 6 pm.Â We had to go. I didnâ€™t want to. She didnâ€™t want to. The next eve she would be on a plane to America for further study. We might meet again. But then everything will have changed. Our eve mightnâ€™t again be ours.
For all those odds, she was leaving and that was our last eve together.
