She stared at the reddish hue in the sky at the sunset. The wind blew little faster and the waves roared louder. She felt they are expressing their pain of not seeing the sun till next day. This has been her routine on weekends from past one year, to watch the nature’s way of expressing love. She smiled at her thoughts, a smile that never reached her lips. She forgot the time when she smiled last. Happiness was never meant for her. She had accepted it long back. Tears neither dried up nor flood her eyes. She shook her head not wanting to relive all the painful memories, not today, not anymore. She turned when she felt his hand on her shoulder. She knew it is time to go back. She stood up and walked silently along with him.
