This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 42; the forty-second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "COLOR"
"What is the Color of Love then", she asked , brushing away stray strands playing with her face. She was anxiously waiting to hear his voice.
"Love, mmmm, well People usually say its Red", he replied.
His voice was deep, and Husky. She loved the sound of his voice, especially, the alteration in his voice when he said anything with 'R'.
"So, you have never stepped outside? ", he questioned. She could sense the curiosity and shock in his voice. She laughed, crinkling the corners of her eyes.
He noticed that she crinkled her nose when she laughed, and bit her upper lip, to stop laughing. He found that beautiful in her.
"Well, its difficult for me to go out, Im accident prone you know", she shrugged, gesturing dramatically towards her eyes.
He was sitting in front of her, yet she looked faraway. However for her, she was looking at his "Voice" and imagining as to how he looked.
She hesitated a little, shifting uncomfortably, "I want to know how you look" , she said, holding out her hands to thin air. He held her hands and placed them over his face. She fingers traced the outline of his forehead, taking in his broad forehead, and felt the length of his nose, his cheeks, his jawline. Her index finger traced the outline of his lips. She quivered, so did he. She pulled back her hands and smiled.
"Dont you want to know how you look", he asked. She smiled, and rested her chin on her palms, tilting her head. "mm hmmm, i want to".
"Well you have beautiful Eyes", she laughed at the irony of what he said. he continued ignoring her laugh, "and when you laugh, there are stars in your eyes". Her smile faded, and her eyes became moist. There was an awkward silence between them.
"Cmon, lets go" , he said, pulling her up by her arm.
"Whaat, where", she uttered confused. "I..I cant come outside, im .. well i just cant", she said pulling free of his grasp.
"Of course you can, come with me, il keep you safe, trust me"
She smiled and nodded, "But ...." She heard him moan, "ok ok ... but i need my ..."
"No you dont, let me be your cane today", he held her hand.
She took a deep breath, and followed him.
They stepped out of her house, she was holding onto him. A car sped by , startling her. She gripped his arms tightly, and was almost on the verge of tears.
"I .. I.. no no ... i need to go back"
"Sssshhhh, im here , with you. I promise you, il not let anything happen to you... ok.. im here, dont worry..sshhh ... im here"
She swallowed back her fears, and let loose the grip on his arm. She forced a smile. "okay"
He smiled and hugged her. "Lets do this"
He described everything he saw, worry lines gave away, to a smile, and eagerness to know more.
"You cant see the color, but you can definitely feel it", he told, brushing away a few strands from her face.
"I guess i hear Red now", she smiled, his favorite smile.
