And that’s how …#9

We woke in the afternoon. Yes we were so tired and drenched after the late night/ early morning party that we slept till 1 o’ clock in the afternoon. Everyone was still tired and had no intention of waking up, hence making Miss. B play her usual smart card. She switched on the gardening pipe and sprayed all of us with the cold water. Everyone was wide awake now. And then started the game of playing with water.


No one remained dry, everyone was sweated in that cool water during the hot afternoon, Mr. R, Miss. B, Miss. R, Mr. B, Mr. H, my brother, every single one of us. Oh my God! We did not leave any chance to enjoy and have a blast with each other. We danced and we sang with that artificial rainfall and no one realised that, that beautiful morning awaited a sad ending.


We played till 2 o’ clock and then each one of us rushed to the bath rooms. And we all were seated for lunch at 2:30.


We did the little packing of my brothrr and Mr. R post lunch and we killed some time clicking last pictures with each other. And then the clock struck 5.


Miss. R, me, my brother and Mr. R, we all left with their bags, even Mr. H decided to leave then. We reached to the bus stop and were all so nostalgic that no spoke until the bus’ horn went on. It was ready to leave.


Unwillingly, we ushered their luggage into the trunk and they settled on their seats after the final good bye. The bus left but we waited for Mr. H’s bus and then even he left leaving behind me and Miss. R. Honestly even her presence made me feel so, so good right then. In fact I felt the ice already melting. Our relationship warmed up in those two days. And that’s how my brother and Mr. R left us. Mr. R back to his work and my brother to his college.


PS: He got into the college that he interviewed for and they gave him instant joining. And he just left me. I had no chance, even to digest the news that my baby brother will not live with me anymore. I did not even realise that when I left for my vacation, that I would not find him at home when I return.
