Abhay had a strange look on his face when he received that call. Sonali was puzzled - but she dint know... Abhay himself was puzzled!
The caller was none other than Abhay's former room-mate at College and one of his dear-most friends - Omi!
"Can it be? Is it happening once again??", Abhay was talking to himself. He had a feeling that he might receive this call... strangely he always knew when something like this was supposed to happen. Lost in thoughts he forgot to pick the call - it had become a missed call!
After a couple of minutes the screen on the mobile flashed. It was an SMS from Omi. It read - "I received a call from Saakshi at 1:15 AM yester-night. She wanted your phone number. However, I did not give it to her... I remember what happened last times she called. But if you want to talk to her, the number is 9798541596... "
Abhay couldn't believe what he read. He read again and then yet again. He had been expecting this similar kind of situation. Whenever he tried to start a new life... his past had always come looking for him.
He knew what he had to do. He immediately dialed the number. However, no one picked up the call. He sent a SMS and was lost in thoughts. Suddenly the screen of his mobile flashed again. It was her SMS... he wasn't able to decide if he wanted to look at it or not. But then it was her, whom he had loved more than anything and everything in his life. They had been together for over 3 years... until she had decided to ditch him for someone else. He remembered those painful days. It was all flashing before his eyes, just like all that happened just yesterday, though it had been more than a year now.
Finally he started reading the SMS.
