Ash couldn’t understand why Jason didn’t see that girl behind him.
“And where did she go? I wish I could know her name, at least.” Ash said.
Ash tried to keep him busy but why he wasn’t able to keep her out of his mind? He wondered. “Maybe she’s meant to be there.” He told himself.
“Jason, I’m going out for a walk. Will come back soon.” Ash said.
“Yeah, until then, may I eat your snacks?” Jason asked cheerfully but Ash didn’t mind.
He got out and sat near the bank of the Sanctus Lake. One could find him throwing pebbles in the crystal clear water, and then he caught a glimpse of a bright beautiful golden fish. His eyes followed it until the fish was gone.
The shining sun was now setting in the arms of the clouds. Ash didn’t realize that his time had passed so fast.
He stood up and decided to go back but wait, what was that? Did he really see a girl on the other shore, the same girl that he met before? He turned around and yes, she was there.
He rushed and crossed the old-looking wooden bridge over the Sanctus Lake.
“Hey, wait!” He said panting.
She turned around, “Hi, I am glad to see you again.” She said with a soft smile that made Ash forget his name for a while.
“Where did you go, then?” He asked the question that was upsetting him the most. “You just disappeared.”
“I didn’t left, I was there only.” She said slowly in a soft voice.
“Oh, maybe I didn’t see you.” He paused. “I am Ash, What’s your name?” He said, and extended his right hand gathering all the confidence he could.
“I am Aurora.” She said in a dreamy voice, and extended her right hand, too.
He didn’t even notice that her hand was cold as ice, for he was mesmerized by looking in her eyes. Suddenly, he realized and came back into real life.
“What a beautiful name! By the way, where do you live? I live with my friend Jason just at the other bank of the river.”
“I live there” She said pointing towards a beautiful small hut inside the thick forest, decorated with flowers and surrounded by what looked like a very small but beautiful garden.
“Who do you live with?”
“I live alone,” She said calmly.
“I am sorry; you may feel lonely at times, don’t you?” Ash felt bad for her and tried to show his sympathy.
She smiled that confused Ash even more than before. “I said I live alone but why should that mean I may feel lonely? There’s a different between two, Ash.” She said in a comforting tone.
Ash realized that he was staring at her while thinking about what she had just said. Ash wished if he could stay there, with her, forever. He didn’t even know that stars were visible in the dark sky by now.
“I think I should leave now. Nice to meet you again, Ash.” She said softly.
“Now? I mean, yes you should.” It seemed as if he had a difficulty in speaking out those words. “I hope we meet again…”
Aurora smiled and left.
Hello wonderful Bloggers!

Haven’t read the previous parts? Go, check them out too…
Today, in my school there was Diwali week Celebration in which few competitions were conducted like Mehndi competition, Pot decoration competition and innovative gift wrapping competition (Though I really don’t know how can someone innovatively wrap an empty box) So, I chose pot decoration. At least I think that I did a wonderful job and I am really happy for that. Unfortunately, pots are submitted in the school. Hope we get them back before Diwali so that I can post its pic here.

On my #1 episode of Blue watery Eyes, She commented:
“Well maybe other stories are more of suspense and mystery and while they make for an excellent read, this story of yours seems to be like a dream..it’s that magical experience that we all wish to feel, you connect more so with it… It’s light and airy. And draws even you, the writer in. We come from the universe and nature, so of course we shall return to the nature to seek peace…at least that is how I feel over it. I just love the innocence and mysterious excitement that you have combined here!”
