Somehow I landed up with the amount of time to think about ‘The thing’ post the long interview of my brother and the extended wait, the travel and meeting the other people. It was actually nothing and yet a lot of thing for me. It was something that was related to Miss. R and now that I was at her place it was more difficult not to think about it. What exactly, even I don’t know. It all started with a bad incident followed by a lot of dramatic issues. It was literally nothing but grew to something really serious, an extremely bad experience, some really harsh words spoken on her side. I never repeated them, as I never had the courage to speak something so piercing. I know, words spoken stay with us, they can never be taken back.
Miss. R behaved as if nothing had ever happened, so I took the same road too. Why dig out old matters, right? I thought it to be rather easy but it turned out to be more complicated despite everything I put in to forget the past and be normal. And you know, what? I did. I succeeded.
From then on it became quite easy to mingle with even Miss. R. The only problem was that I know that I will never forget those hard words. Only, I can learn to live with it.
So all of us together. It was a once in a blue moon kind of thing. And we were pretty sure that we would have a great time.
And that’s how I realised that sometimes, forgetting the past or at the least leaving it in the past is the best thing to do. But I will somehow still remember the ‘past’.
