Day 20 :: Kiss a Bye

1:00 AM
She felt his embrace against her. She cooed to him in sleep "You came back? I didn't expect you till tomorrow evening."

"I came to say bye, honey. I am leaving.", he whispered into her ears and lightly brushed his lips against her cheeks.

Her eyes flew open. And she sat up straight in her bed. There was no one!

1:05 AM
Aaarghh! It was a dream of course! How in this world was it possible? He'd just left in the late evening! And was not expected until the next day.

And god! Was that some real feeling of his embrace! And the kiss!

1:10 AM

'Nothing's gonna change my love for you....' her cell phone rang. She smiled; it was him.

"Darling you won't believe.... Hello? Hello?" There was no one speaking at the other end. She heard only some men shouting indistinctly and a siren wailing.

She cut the call. What the hell!

1:15 AM

'Nothing's gonna...' her phone sang again. Terrified, she cut the call yet again.

She called back; all she could hear was muffled voices combined with static.

She started debating whether or not to call back.

1:25 AM

The phone rang again. The romantic song now had started to sound eerie.

"Ma'am, does this phone belong to your husband?"

"Yes, why? And who is this? Where is my husband?"

"Ma'am, I am sorry to say but your husband was killed in a car accident. We will have to ask you to come and identify his body."

"Killed? Are you sure he is no more?" she asked calmly.

"I am sorry again. But yes, ma'am, he is no more."

"When did this happen?" she croaked, her eyes brimming with tears.

"Our estimate is around half an hour back, ma'am."
