Picture Perfect Moment

She woke up refreshed and after many months she had seen the 9.00 AM on her cell phone while still lying sleepily in bed. She loved the feeling of a full night's sleep. No project deadlines, no 7 AM meetings. As she got up to walk to the verandah, she could feel the energy within herself. Ahh, what a good night's sleep could do. Ahh, life was good!

Outside, a cool wind was blowing on this unusually hot December day. The sky was clear and the fushcia bouganvillea against the deep blue ocean backdrop looked gorgeous. Indeed, it was a picture perfect day. Not wanting to miss a single minute of this breathtakingly beautiful day, she ran inside the room and into the shower and was out in no time.

Wearing her summery peasant top and a pair of shorts- [how thrilling is it?- wearing cool, light, summery clothes on new year's eve!] she headed out and towards the water.

As she ran towards the water, she couldn't wait to feel it on her feet. The water was biting cold. Ouch!! Suddenly she realized that the pacific can never be as inviting as the caribbean. Smiling, she started climbing up the narrow clay road that led up to a small park. Taking out her camera, she focussed her attention on a bunch of yellow roses and clicked.

After several more pictures, something in the water below caught her attention. He was moving sleathily with amazing grace, bending down on the surf board traveling the whole length of the wave- speed and precision all rolled into perfection right in front of her eyes.

As soon as he finished riding the wave and crashed down into the water, she clapped gleefully and whisled noisily; like a kid at the circus. He did it again and yet again and everytime after he finished, she clapped with as much enthusiasm as the first time.

And then it happened. She saw him coming out of the water towards her. She took a few steps forward too; casually and stylishly walking towards the windy clay road. And then just as their eyes met, she fell--not in love-- but 15 feet below on the beach.

Confession time- I've never stared at a man (or anyone/anything for that matter) and lost balance (literally) ever before. I would like to think I just lost balance and slipped. But, I think I was just ogling too hard and lost all sense of place and time. Thank God for the sandy beach.

Everything said and done, haaye woh nazar ka milna, it was truly qaatil :)
