And that’s how …#5

Today was even interesting. I must say with each passing day I am enjoying my trip to the fullest. Today was no exception and yet an ultimate day. But I guess it all has come to an end rather very shortly. I could do with few more days, but I think I  have to be satisfied now.


So, what happened today? Well, the day was going by smoothly enough until the evening. We had a planned schedule, we thought we had one more day to ourselves and then we will go to our respective works the next day. We both had important scheduled meetings the next day. And then we’d leave. The trip would end.


But my dear Mr. R did have surprises. It was so unexpected that for a while I remained stuck to the ground, stunned.


We were there sitting in the lawn, sipping tea and I suggested going on a walk. But he wouldn’t budge. It was absolutely against his nature and then something weird happened. He just smiled and left, went upstairs and shut himself in the room. When I followed him, he came out of the room as if nothing was cryptic. He simply said, “I am not in the mood to go out today.”


And hence I opened my book and started reading my current novel. It was after only ten minutes that  I heard a car barging towards out door and pushing the horn to its extent. We both rushed to our door. Mr. R was smiling widely, picking up the bags from the trunk, welcoming everyone and I was the one remained frozen, stunned, knowing not how to react.


Mr. H, Mr. B, Miss. B, Miss. R and Mr.T were all exuberant and ecstatic. Even my brother was with them. How, Why? I had no idea. After the moment of surprise passed even I was extremely happy. I had no idea, no words how to express what I was feeling. And so I just smiled and welcomed them all into our house.


And that’s how our gang  was back with a bang that day.


But I defroze soon and we went on bike rides in the cool, calm air, enjoying the empty streets, and the sudden come back of all of us together.


I was happy, I really was but there was one thing at the back of my mind constantly hitting on me. I have no idea what am I to do of that particular matter. How am I going to deal with all of this.


I thought I was on a work vacation but now this? How am I to deal with this now???
