Autograph

Curiosity and anxiety filled her mind, when she discovered her college autograph, 30 years later, beneath the pile of other read and un-read books.

The college had seen his and her sincere love, but the moment they realized that their relationship could not last long, they recovered practically, found their own lives and eventually had forgotten each other.

Hands trembling and wanting to read it again, she rushed to  the page, which she had much loved; much read and had much cried over, long ago.

To her shock, the pages that her first love had filled were carefully torn.

Much more than dismay, she felt a pang of pity for her husband who had been carrying it in his heart for these many years.

  2. Touching tale.
    maybe her hubby had torn that page and then burnt it and felt better! Now maybe he has forgotten all about it! :) Remember the scene in the Hindi movie- 'Jab We Met'? :)
