Shades of Grey – 5: Friendship

March 12, 2010

…previously chapter 4

As Sanjay pulled his car on to the Ring Road his cell phone beeped twice indicating the arrival of a new message. As his car sped on the open road, he read the message:

Thank you so much for the lovely evening and dinner. I will never forget this day. You are really a nice person.

A smile broke on Sanjay’s lips. He had taken Shruti out for dinner to a fancy Mughlai restaurant. It was a perfect evening. Shruti wore a red top and a long flowing white skirt. The dim lights of the restaurant bounced on her fair skin, giving her a glow around her. Her perfume still lingered in the car. Sanjay read the message again.

You are really a nice person.

He remembered looking at her soft smooth hands as she played with her rings. How he wanted to hold her hands in his.

He remembered being mesmerized by her lips as she giggled at one of his anecdotes. How he wanted to let his lips linger over them.

He remembered her beautiful feet peeping from beneath her long skirt. How he wanted to caress them gently and tickle her sole.

Sanjay pressed the down key to read the remaining message.

I am so lucky to have you as my friend. Luv Shruti

Sanjay moved his thumb over the small screen on his cell phone trying to feel the words on the screen.

I am so lucky to have you as my friend. Luv Shruti

He read the remaining message again. He brushed aside the thoughts of her soft hands and full lips. He rolled down the car windows to let her perfume blow away in the wind. He couldn’t betray her trust. He couldn’t let her down.

    Actually the story brewing in my head is a lot more complicated. Let’s see how it goes. It is going slower than expected and in bits and pieces. Hopefully somewhere in the future it will all tie up together.
