I text-ed him that I will be reaching the station in 10 minutes. No reply.
I called him for few times back to back after I reached the station. He did not answer my call.
What happen??? Why he is not answering my call? This never happens. Hope he is alright. Thousands of thoughts started coming to my mind. We keep hearing about the accidents that happen near our area on the highways almost every day, not to forget the worst one that we saw on the weekend. I prayed to my God to please keep him safe.
He is still not answering my calls. Should I call BIL to ask if he called him??? Should I call my neighbor to check if he is at home? Should I take lift from someone to drop me home so that I can check if he is at home?
I don’t know how I was controlling my tears. Everyone who got off the train with me has already left with their loved ones. I keep looking at each and every car, is it ours?? No.. it’s not. Has he parked his car somewhere else where I am not able to see him? Is he on another call more important than me that’s why he is not answering my call even though he might be able to see my call waiting?? No.. he never does that, he always answers my call keeping other person on hold.
Then.. where is he??
There… I see our blue car coming & it stopped right next to me. I opened the door & hugged him so tight without worrying about other cars that are waiting to be parked. I cried so bad as if all my fear just came out in the form of tears. “I was so scared, where were you?? Why you were not answering my call??” I sobbed out through my tears.
“Arey.. my phone was stuck in my pocket & couldn’t get it out while driving, I tried but it was stuck inside my pocket badly..see still it not coming out!! I am alright jaanu, don’t worry.. see I am fine naa” This was his reply!!!!!
For next half an hour I was mute!! I just couldn’t speak.
