"Why didn't we talk to each other then...?" asked Stella wiping tears off her eyes as she continued "Look now we have wasted seven long years ignoring each other, not acknowledging each other's presence..." while Nikki looked on, tears flowing through her eyes as well.
Sitting side by side, holding each other's hands, the two friends wondered what could have stopped them from speaking, from being the best friends that they once were as Nikki continued "I shouldn't have left without talking to you. It was my fault.....Now that I look back at it, it seems so trivial...Stella I'm sorry...I should have tried to sort out this misunderstanding long back!"
"No...it was my fault too...The key to our friendship was our ability to let go of any ego on our part and just talk, cry and biker, but shed all inhibitions and move ahead together...." Stella said clearing her throat "but that year everything changed..And I can't even put a finger on the reason for it now...trust me it was my fault too Nikki..."
"I wish we had spoken sooner...So many times I wanted to just pick up the phone and give you a call but couldn't..." Nikki said "I just didn't know if my apologies could unlock the passage to those days when nothing could come between us."
To all friends lost.. May we find it in our hearts, the path that leads to each other!

The week goes by so fast, doesn't it? As if at the blink of an eye! It seems like yesterday that I had written about the Fs for the week and now see we are here again for another ABC Wednesday. Time truly flies!
So with G being the letter this time around, let me take you through my version of Gs for this week.
G is for Germany! Well yes I’m in Germany folks, with S finally. After waiting in vain for a project to turn up and for the company to pay for my travel as a dependent (that’s usually how it works), we decided to take matters in our own hands. And now I’m here in this beautiful place for at-least a month or two. After having worked continuously for 6 years, I think I deserve a little break. What say? (Honestly I'm also apprehensive about what I'll do the whole day without work! But I'll worry about that later)
G is for Giggles. Well since last week was full of frowns, it’s only fair that I make up for it with as much positivity as possible. So my mantra for this week is to smile, laugh and giggle as much as I can. After all who knows how much time I have on this earth? I might as well make up for lost time, for time I wasted away in loathing a man (read manager) who actually deserves not even a moment of my life.
G is for Grabbing the reins of my life. If there’s something that life has taught me over and over again, it’s to take charge of the situation to solve problems. No one can or will help and that’s the bitter truth. Family surely but in certain affairs even they can’t do much. So that’s when we have to just do what we feel right and hope that all goes well. This week I did the same and took away control from sadistic bosses for there’s only so much they can do to ruin my life. And I’m so glad I did!
So there, these are my Gs this week! What are yours?
