She....(Short story)



(Idiot)

She said so loud ,her own voice in the empty room startled her..

She stared to her computer screen for another minute ,the sighed and stood up...

Looking down to her dog .He was ,as usual ,panting ,with his tongue out of his muzzle..He was looking at her with his brown ,adorable eyes...She felt calm instantly.

(You agree ,don't you) ,she told him

He barked once ,and wagged his tail enthisiatically,and took one step closer to her.

She smiled

(of course you agree ,because you are such a good boy ,aren't you?)

he barked again ,and stood on his hind legs for an instant..

She laughed .It was a genuine one..

(oooo ,I think some body wants a treat)

He kpt looking at her , she thought she saw sparkles in his eyes..She knew he understood her perfectly..and she smiled again..but this time her smile was sad..

(If people were this simple . A treat would fix everything) she told her self..

She shifted her eyes to her computer screen again.

This time her gaze was distant..She wasn't really looking at the screen.It seemed like she was looking at something beyond it..

Her dog looked at her for a second ,lowered his head and rested it on his paws ,still looking at her..

(only if....) , she whispered...

on the screen ,she wasn't seeing the words any more..

The reflections on the screen hypnotized her..

She saw flash backs from her life..

Her childhood and teen years .Her choices ,and her achievements..

Then her eyes fell on the words on the screen again ,and she sighed..

She tried ,this much she knew..She would take a chance if she could ..But she wasn't sure..

Her eyes ran over the lines again..This is stupid..

(you win) ,she whispered..

Then she looked down at her dog ,who looked back..

she smiled at him..

(I think he'd like you if he met you)

Her dog barked quitely..

Her smile widened

and she looked back to her screen..

Tomorrow is another day ,she thought..

And sighed again



The End

Memoirs Of A Lone Drifter..(For the record: No thing to do with me)




(P.S: this is an attempt of creative writing in English..It is filled with mistakes ,mis-spellings ,disconnected thouhts and heavy load of boring stuff .Consider your self warned)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


He walked..

He'd been walking for so long ,he forgot when did he start ,or where did he start his jurney ,and he didn't care.. He was here ,that was enough for him..

........

He crossed great distance..

He stopped...Looked back to all the plains ,the hills ,the rivers he crossed..

Then he looked ahead...More plains were there..More hills and rivers..

He knew he had to cross them.

He sighed ,shrugged ,and started walking again..

.........

He was tired alright ,but stopping was not an option..Not now ,not at this stage of his jurney..

He assumed he was in the midway to his destination..He couldn't remember his destination any more ,but by now he knew it was the jurney that matters ,not the destination..

(A jurney of a thousand miles begins with a single step)

He smiled ,looked down to his worn shoes..How many miles had he crossed so far?

He didn't know ,and again ,he didn't care..

..........

He thought of those he had to leave behind..

those who loved him unconditionally ,and he loved them back..But he had to leave them ,out of love.

For this ,he cared..

...........


His jurney was not a lonely one..

He had companions along the way.. People whom he trusted with his life...and they never let him down, but they ,like him, had their own jurneys ,their own plains to cross ,their own rivers..

They were away...But they were there..This much he knew..

And that was enough

..........

He lied down on his back on the dew wet grass..

He was gazing at the Moon..

The shiny ,scarred, beutiful silver surface ,like a huge coin in the sky..

Was that light only a reflectin of the Sun?all this sad beauty only a reflection?? He thought that was possible ,but this didn't diminish the magic of the moment..

Then he shifted his gaze to the stars..

With their cold blue light ,like diamonds on violet velvet..

They were different from the ones he used to watch in the beginning of his jurney..

He started drawing imaginary lines..connecting the stars...

He was looking at a face..A familiar one he knew so well for all his life..The face was looking down at him..

He kept his eyes on the stars for so long ,before he closed his eyes and went to sleep..

He never knew ,but he cried in his sleep.

.........

He was walkig again..

His shadow ,casted by the silver moonlight ,was in front of him...

He smiled ,it occured to him that it looked like he was chasing his own shadow..It occured to him he was definitly going to lose. It was so rediculous ,he started laughing.

Then there was that noise from behind the bushes..

He didn't turn his head..

He knew what he would see if he did

They followed him from the beginning..with their yellow ,bright,sick eyes and shapeless dark bodies..

His own demons..

He used to fear them..They always came for him when he was weak..to feast on his fears ,his darkness ,his restless..

But he didn't fear them anymore..

He accepted them now ,as a part of his jurney ,a part of him.. He hated them alright ,but they were there..So better to live with that..It was an ongoing battle ,he knew he couldn't win ..But he definitly woldn't allow him self to lose..A draw was fine with him

........

He ,again, looked forward..

long was his way ,

Something was always waiting around the corner..

A caring face may be

or a helping hand

more rivers ,

larger plains,

higher hills,

He didn't know anymore where does his path lead to..

He just enjoyed the ride..

.........

Till next time
