Wrong mates( 1 min read)

‘Can we talk – ‘ Rishav’s voice choked up as Nisha turned around, reminding him of the first time they’d met in college;

it hadn’t taken him long to realize that it was love at first sight.

It’d taken a little longer, however, for Nisha to realize her feelings for him but once she did, they were inseparable; in no time they’d been labeled as soul-mates by friends and even families; their story was no less than a fairytale and like it happens in fairy-tales, soon they’d begun their happily ever after.

Nisha scrunched her eyebrows; she looked surprised, her stare blank and cold, deprived of any emotions; Rishav added, ‘I wanted to talk with you one last time before we…sign that paper…’; Nisha nodded with a straight face;

‘weren’t we soul-mates – ‘ his voice trailed off as he uttered those words and the floodgates of memories and emotions opened up;

‘if we really were, then our souls picked the wrong mates for themselves…’ She left the room with her divorce lawyer.
