Cryptic life …..narrow minded attitudes sets prejudices that rips apart humanity out of human souls.
I knew how hard it must be for Ted …
“Bye granny” I said… nudging Ted.
“We can rent a house near college.” I told him.
“Are you blackmailing me?”asked granny.
“You can take it as what you wish granny”I said.
“What kind of a girl are you?”she asked.
“A good friend” I replied.
Granny might have thought its better to allow ted inside the house than leaving me alone with him….
We marched inside…..I hugged granny kissing her ……and speed away before she could brandish her cane. ..
I treaded to my room tired my limbs aching ……ted was unpacking, his muscles contracting and expanding with every move .
I tried but all my limbs were like saggy….
“Muscles build only when you work out Amy”smirked ted…
“Hmm…..I’ll work out from tomorrow ” I said”ted is there something wrong?”.
“Nothing” he replied.
I traipse towards my room wondering what was the reason behind the trepidation that seems to haunt him.
I lie on my bed staring at the ornate ceiling again my heart spelling his name my trainer .
Soon I curled underneath my cot dreaming vividly….
I am hitting Vicky with boxing gloves and stomping on the lean girls face …..I kicked her head like a football….
Thump I heard a noise.
I woke up with a start….instead of the lean girl I kicked my mud pot which lay broken….
Suddenly my door broke open with a thud….ted sped inside with his gun drawn out and his eyes scanning the room.
“Amy are you alright?” He asked.
“I kicked the pot thinking that it was a girl from my college”I said ashamed at my folly.
“Ted ,what is wrong? “I asked .
“Nothing go to sleep ,Amy “he said.walking away
“Ted you are hiding something from me….I have noticed you are tensed”I said following him.
“Nothing ” he said drifting apart keeping the gun under his pillow.
“Tell me what is wrong….ted only then I will leave you ” I said hugging him….
“Leave me alone Amy ” he shouted at the top of his voice.
“Ted ” I called…with tear filled eyes unable to understand the reason behind his outrage.
“Get lost” he said
Tears slipped my eyes……
PS: friends please tell me if unbounded is boring ……please do tell me….
