Is that Letter for me?

It’s a very short story unlike its title.

There is this kid and lately, I have been seeing a folded white paper in his hand and that is escalating my curiosity levels. He is keeping that paper very carefully. Rather, I would say extremely mindfully.

Our relationship is like Tom and Jerry. We kind of annoy and test each other’s limit . He is kind of short tempered and I ,on the other hand, am a very patient person( the age factor maybe).  I just observe and smile while he aggressively struggles to elucidate his point.

Being in his company is like listening to a riveting tale. I look forward to it. He is 6 years younger to me . Though he is very mature, yet I often make fun of him saying he is just a kid. He retorts by showing his Driver License and other ids as a proof of being not a kid and that actually cracks me up.

I don’t know why I feel this way but that folded white paper is surely addressed to me.

He is just waiting for the right moment to give it.

I didn’t know there was someone more nervous than me, when I was leaving my hometown for the first time, until recently when she shared it with me.

‘ I got a severe headache, and was unable to sleep. I was anxious and nervous galore. I was wondering how would you survive in the town where you knew no one. But all my fears were dispelled when I started chanting the sacred verses.’, said my grandmother.

Her belief in the higher power, makes her stronger to set us free.

**********************************

I fared goodbye to all family members, and when I hugged her the last time before leaving, while unwrapping my arms, I noticed she was on the verge of crying. She showered some blessings onto me, and I noticed that her tears had made up their way into her voice. Tears welled up in my eyes, I avoided her gaze, and quickly ran towards the taxi. I couldn’t cry in front of her.

She had set me free in her world; This was the beginning, she had set herself free from us.
