“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, you should.” It seemed as if he had a difficulty in speaking out those words. “I hope we meet again…”
Aurora smiled and left.
He saw her entering the dark forest, and disappearing by leaving behind only her words. But wait; was there something else also that she left there?
Ash decided to go back, it was already getting late. But as soon as he turned, something glittered on the cold soil below him. He picked it up and found it to be an earring, with a peacock designed on it, which looked beautiful. He guessed if it was of her, because he didn’t ever notice this earring on her.
He kept that earring in his pocket, taking it as a sign of hope that he will meet her again.
He crossed the old-looking bridge over the Sanctus Lake that was now shining due to the reflection of moon. He reached his small house where Jason was already waiting for him.
“Where on earth were you? Do you realize how long you’ve been out there?” Jason demanded.
“You know I was just near the lake, and hey, why are acting so… elderly?” Ash said trying to calm Jason down.
“You know I never eat dinner without you. I and my stomach were waiting for you, and you know that I hate to keep my stomach waiting.” Jason said.
“I am really sorry, Jason. Ok, let’s eat dinner. I don’t think your stomach won’t like to keep waiting anymore.”
They both finished their dinner and it was Ash’s turn now to do the dishes. So, Jason hugged his bed and slept in no time while Ash was doing the dishes. He used to sing songs to make his work easy but this was the first time when he was actually paying attention to the lyrics of the song.
After some time, when he’d done his job, he rolled his hand in his pocket. He picked out the peacock earing and looked at it in a feeling of amazement. Suddenly, all the events, from meeting Aurora to her leaving him in the starry night, revolved in his mind and brought a smile to his face.
He put the earring under his pillow and slept, or maybe tried to sleep because he didn’t know that now it was going to be very difficult to sleep without her coming in his dreams.
