A cab halts in front of a door numbered 12. Tessa pays for her ride and hurries to open the door while the cab driver saluted and left. Tessa with a lot of tension enters her house but all she could hear were sounds of laughter and giggles.  To her dismay, she finds unknown people literally being strangers seated, two men and women with a girl aged around 17 on the sofa.

“There she is” Tessa’s Mom Cynthia saw her and held her arm while she introduced Tessa to the crowd, with a confused look she smiled at them bowing her head in respect.

She later pulls her mom to a side and murmurs “what is happening here? I thought you were in trouble or something”

Her mom ignores the question and smiles at the guest seated and then she turned towards Tessa and said “Why don’t you go to your room and freshen up”

Tessa with a little annoyance walks into the room while the crowd in the hall are being served coffee and resumes talking. When she enters her room Tessa’s eyes widen in shock seeing a young man and her sister seated on her bed engrossed in a photo album with flowers and coffee placed on it.

“What’s going on here?” She asked with a confusion mounting in her voice. The Young man and her sister both looked up at her.

“Hey hi Tessa!” the young man said giving her an extremely charming smile.

“You know my name?” she said giving him a quizzical look.

“I know a lot more than your name.”

“Wow really? haha” she gives him a sarcastic laugh

He looks at her smiling and then replies “Well actually yes.”

She looked at him with arms crossed across her chest and then she spoke, “Well then! Could you take the privilege of explaining what’s going on here?” For which Ben nods his head stating a yes in return “Right! Well maybe I should, that’s my family out there who have come to meet their future daughter-in-law”.

Hearing it Tessa looks at her sister and then at him saying, “Don’t you think she’s too young for that

“If you put it across like that, then…” He points at her sister “Sister-in-law” and then points at Tessa saying “Daughter-in-law”

“Mister! This is not what is called as explaining”

“Okay! Let’s start from the beginning” Tessa sighs hearing it but curiosity doesn’t let her stay still

“Go on” Ben gives her a big smile before he could explain any further.

“Now from all the questions you’ve asked me this far. I’m kind of certain that you don’t know me at all…”

“That’s right, go ahead” Ben nods in reply

“But I do know you… very well in fact. We used to go to the same church, not now though… earlier, I’m…” He was saying as Tessa interrupted him in midair

“You are Adrian’s brother,” She said, there was silence from both ends. Few mins passed as they  looked at each other and Ben broke the silence saying,

“That’s quite a way to remember but well I do have a name…”

“Benjamin” Tessa blurted and Ben has never thought his name would sound this beautiful to him.

She looked into his eyes and he into hers, everything around them slowed and faded well at least that’s what they thought

“Sorry, it took me this long to remember,” she said with an apologetic expression

“That’s okay! Usually, happens the first time but I was confident you wouldn’t remember me certainly not my name” he replied looking amazed and happy that she remembered him including his name.

“Right! It’s been a long time well more like a long, long time ago. Anyways what’s with this daughter-in-law stuff?” Tessa asked him with the lingering curiosity.

“Oh, that one! Well, my parents wanted me to get married so I brought them here.” Ben replied so easily, and her anticipation just grew with his easiness.

“But why bring them here?” She asked

“Because you’re here” he replied looking directly into her eyes, reaching her soul.

“Whats wrong with you?” She said, stifling herself from his gaze

“Nothing is… Tessa! Things like this will take time to explain. If you give me time maybe I could…”

“Whatever is happening right here could you please slow it down.” She said cutting his conversation in mid-sentence.

“Well I’m surprised you didn’t ask me to stop,” Ben said smiling at her

“I didn’t want to be rude,” She said innocently. He again gave her his most charming smile and this time she couldn’t resist but to smile back.

Benjamin excused himself and left the room while Tessa sat on the bed with her little sister who was still busy glancing through the photos, who had no intention of interfering with their conversation.

As Benjamin entered the hallway, his mom looked at him and asked “so when’s the wedding?”

“Mom! Slow down a little I brought you here because you were so stubborn to see her. It’s little too much for her to take all this in, so please” He said looking at his mom with a “please understand look”. Just then Tessa’s mom spoke seeing the expression being passed between the mother and the son “She must have been shocked I guess. Why don’t we give them a little time?”

“That’s actually true! She didn’t expect any of this. So, little time would definitely help and thank you, aunty, for understanding”

“No problem, that’s okay. I’m happy we’ve got to meet at least” she said giving him an understanding smile.

“Yeah that makes two of us and I totally adore Tessa,” he said winking at her as she came out of her room.

They all took leave while Tessa stared at her mom for some serious explanation.

“Mom, really? Then why did I have to meet with David in the first place” she said and was waiting for her mom to answer.

 

What will her mom say?

Will she accept Benjamin or David?

The footsteps of a young girl walking along the deserted road, her skirt ruffling on the gravel as she walks, were the only sound heard. She stops in front of a café and raises her head to inhale the exotic smell of freshly brewed coffee and then she entered into the café which displayed a sign on the door saying “closed”. Has she enters the few people who were preparing the shop for the day, greets her. Tessa smiles at them as she enters and waves her hand at few.

“Hey there! Is everything ready? Almost time to open the café” she says

The waitress and the chefs who were grouped at one end of the kitchen looks up at her. One timid looking girl bows down her head showing respect and answers “Yes Mam”.

Tessa’s eyes widen for no particular reason and the waitress looks confused at her

“I’ve told you, just call me Tessa. I don’t like the mam, sir environment”.

Just then the manager walks into the kitchen in search of Tessa.

“Tessa! There you are. I’ve been looking for you everywhere”.

“Really? Everywhere?” She asks grinning at her.

“Well you know what I meant and you need to get ready to meet your visitor if you haven’t forgotten,” The manager says in a rigid voice.

“Oops I totally forgot” Tessa replies cringing her shoulders

“There you go” Saying, she gives her I knew it would happen look. After a minute or two, giving them the details about the Menu for the day, she sighs and then walks into her office to get ready.

 A waitress was arranging the sheets on the table while a man walks into the café.

“Sir! We aren’t open yet, will take about 15 minutes before we are open” She says as the man entered, wiping her hands on the apron.

“Well! I have an appointment” He takes out his business card and hands it over to the waitress and continues “I’m here to meet Tessa”.

While the waitress takes the card from him looking confused, the manager of the cafe runs towards them on overhearing the conversation and greets him with a smile.

“I’m sorry,” She replied giving a stern glance at the waitress

“Allow me to guide you to your table” saying she tells the waitress to inform Tessa. The waitress nods and leaves the room and after few minutes Tessa walks into the room and nods at the manager. The manager takes her leave bows at the visitor showing her due respect and leaves them alone.

“Hi David” She greets him with a lovely smile. He stands in return as she walks towards him and says ” You look splendid” hearing which Tessa blushes and sits on the chair opposite to him.

“What would you like to have?”

“I’ve heard we get amazing coffees here. So definitely coffee” he responded with a smirk.

“Of course we serve the best coffee here,” She said raising her shoulder which showed the confidence she possessed.

David smiles at her response as Tessa waves for the waitress, orders for two cups of freshly brewed amazing coffee and then she turns towards him, asking “So how’s work?”

“Great! Dealing with books is good however it’s hectic at times, in fact, this time I did keep my word and brought you a book” saying he hands over the book to Tessa. She takes it and thanks him.

“Aren’t you going to open it?

“Later” saying she keeps the package on the table as he asks the question which she has been trying to avoid.

“This is our fourth meet so far. Tes! What do you think?”

“Yes! I know you want to know the answer but I need to discuss with my parents first.” She says a little hesitantly

“But  …” as he was about to further continue Tessa’s phone rings and disrupts the environment and the conversation stops mid-air. Tessa excuses and leaves the place to attend the call. Meanwhile, the coffee was served and David took a few sips while waiting for her to return.

After few minutes she enters looking worried and confused, seeing her expression David sets the coffee on the table.

“Sorry! I’ve got to leave now. It’s an emergency”

“What happened? Is there a problem?” He asks with concern

“I’m sorry I’ve got to leave…Eh… I don’t know. Mom just called and asked me to come home.” She responds with tension surfacing in every word. Meanwhile, she orders one of the waitresses to bring her bag and stole has she waited impatiently.

“Do you what me to come along?” David asked, walking towards and giving her the package.

“No, it’s okay. Please do have your coffee and thanks for the book again” saying she exits through the door while he stood there watching her with confusion and concern clouding his mind.

Was she faking the call or Was it real?

What must have happened?

One Little Conversation…

images

A conversation is a informal talk between two or more people in which news or ideas are exchanged. Isn’t that is what we learnt in school? We have conversations with ‘n’ number of people we meet in our journey of life. Some we cherish close to our heart and some we wish to forget. Be it a conversation with a stranger or a close one we do learn something out of every conversation. Now a days people don’t have time to have a face to face conversation but everything is told through a text. Be it Proposals or break up’s everything as become so easy with a single text. Probably that’s were the problem starts but we fail to recognize it. Expressions, words and tone of speech sums it up together which makes a conversation far better than a text or a mail.

Conversations teach us life lessons when we feel lost , gives us hope when we feel down, makes us laugh and puts our heart at ease. In this world of technology we forget what’s in front of us and live in a virtual world where reality seems far. Our heads are always bent looking at the technology in our hands where everything resides in our palm. It makes you stay connected with the other part of the world ignoring the place you live . Technology makes us become close with the people who are far in distance but what about the ones that live with us day in and day out? Be it anger, love or for that matter any kind of emotion it means a lot in person than any other medium of communication.

So …
Think …
When was the last time you had a real conversation? When was the last time you put your mobile down to actually talk or listen to someone? When was the last time you sat with someone just to speak?

So Take some time and put your gadget down.. go meet people and have real conversations because..
One conversation can change a person’s life.. might give someone hope.. might save someone from choosing a wrong path.. might give someone an idea to change the world … or might even bring meaning to someone’s life…

Let’s lift our heads and see the people around us. Spend time more with the people than with the gadgets and when you leave…

Make sure you leave them with a smile…😊

P.S : It’s time for real conversations in this robotic world..
