Part 05 : Babbling by the beach...

The table was booked, the night was set. Ben was more curious than excited to know what had happened to her. When they reached the table, he asked Kate to call for something to drink. “I will have a Kingfisher Beer Mild, what about you, Ben ?”, Kate said looking at the menu card. Listening to this, Ben widened his eyes in shock because this was the same girl who was against alcohol and never keen on having it or letting others have in her company. 
Kate scanned his expressions, looked back at the menu card and uttered, “Yes, I know you are shocked! Some things in life change you too much", she said while she shut the menu card and kept it aside. She looked at the flowered candles on the table as the flame reflected through her eye, it was,for Ben, a perfect moment to stare at her.

Part 04 : Little things Kate enjoyed in his company

While they walked toward the car, Ben held her hand to make sure she would not trip over her heels realizing the  fact that she was wearing them after a long time. He opened the car door for her and settled to the driver’s seat. Before he started the engine, he questioned Kate, “What are you expecting?”
Kate was excited but was not expecting anything. “Because it is you, I am sure there is something special happening. Otherwise I am not really expecting things!” Ben did not counter question her at that moment and drove toward the beach.

Part 03 : He knew, she won't deny him.

The diary was intriguing enough but he wanted to hear it from her and that was only possible by the shore. He knew that the beach would tranquil her thoughts and allow them to flow easily, hence Ben convinced her for a walk at the beach.
Kate was not in a mood to change for the walk as over years she had grown closer to the messy look, with her hippy dresses. She had made herself comfortable with roaming out in her pyjamas, chappals, her hair tied up in a bun. Ben was blown to see this drastic change in her, as with him she dressed up like a lady with perfect combinations of attire and jewelry.

Part 02 : The night of celebrations...

          The smile on her face said it all. Kate was glooming with happiness, the one that comes from within, the one which is not materialistic in nature. Someone said it right, “The aura of success can only be felt, if you have the right company to share the victory”. The plight was a complete surprise to her but things fell in a way she always aspired.
          Her thoughts took her to the wistful memories while she went to the kitchen to get him a drink. It was Ben whom she had met years ago at a ceremony. The apathy towards the ceremony had got them talking. She never knew what was imminent. But that day, she just loved talking to him.Ben was still looking around the house, until a diary caught his attention. He called out from the room, “What is this diary about?” They both walked up to  the dining table to revisit some old memories. “This diary has secrets about me!” Kate exclaimed with an artful smile. The conversations then took them back to the era where their bond emerged out of the blue.

Part 01 : At times, the person matters not the situation!

            It was a usual day for her, while she returned from office and sipped her tea. As she organised the pile of notes to finish the research work that she was working on, there was a sudden ring at the door. She wondered for a moment as to who it could be at this hour! It was 8 in the evening, she generally never had anyone visit her at this hour of the day, without informing her. She walked up to the door to check who it was.
          “Hey, how have you been?” said a voice which she had been longing to hear. She looked up to him, continued to stare as she wasn’t expecting to see him ever.  To cut the silence that her thoughts built up, he uttered, “May I come in?”
