#1, in the rain

It was a Sunday afternoon. The skies were overcast. The staccato sound of the rain on the tin roof and the fragrance of wet mud made her long for a walk in the rains. She lazily got off the couch and started looking for something to wear on her feet. Two kilometres away, he was getting rather bored with seeing the 8th episode of season 9 of "Friends" for the 27th time. He looked out of the window. The rain didn't seem to be in any mood to stop from the last 13 hours. He looked at his watch. 16:12. He figured a good jog in the rains wouldn't kill him.

She went down. Her long navy skirt swirling around her ankles, her long black hair blowing in the air, her chappals getting brown with mud. She was totally oblivious to everything but the drops of rain falling on her, caressing her face, making love to her. Like a lover with no inhibitions, she was enjoying this blatant display of love and lust.

He didn't know where he's going to, or why. All he knew there was some force so strong that it kept drawing him further and further from his house. He gave a damn about the mud and the rain playing havoc on his clothes. All he could hear was the sound of his feet and feel the rain on his face; the only thing he felt was the need to go further, totally unaware of a world around him.

And all that could be heard on the road was the sound of his feet, and the rain on the road. She was walking like she owned the road. He was running like there was nothing else to do. Till, his eyes met hers, and she smiled.Time stopped. He stopped. He smiled back. There was nothing but the rain and two strangers in all their innocence. And as for the photographer, he couldn't have arranged it better himself!

    "i have seen `Friends` episode 8 season 9, 27 times...."

    Was it before getting acquainted with my protagonist or after that?

    I thought i was the protaganist. and i dont have an answer for "How well are u acquitted with urself?"
    Dont believe me? ask me anything from Friends season 7, 8, 9 or even the latest 10. try me.
    btw - Smitha is not my real name. its an anagram.

     
  • At 9:15 PM, September 13, 2004, Blogger Kathak - The Story Teller! said…

    So whats your real name?
    Or are we going to play decipher the anagram?

     
  • At 11:37 AM, September 14, 2004, Blogger S m i t h a said…

    lets play!!

    1. article and me needs a swap
    2. remember i'm from TN, for i have an initial
    3. a malayali will say "Enough, what?"
    4. in sanskrit, it means Knowledge.

    Im a scrabble freak and when I read this novel, Da Vinci code, it got me into anagrams.
    Tell me about thou. I await with bated breath...

     
  • At 1:48 PM, September 15, 2004, Blogger Kathak - The Story Teller! said…

    I wouldn't know malayali, so I can't possibly answer that one.

    Coming to the sanksrit words for knowledge, I can think up
    gyan
    veda
    vidya
    avidya
    manas (if I'm not mistaken, in a very broad sense would mean knowledge)
    and then there would be variants to these.

    Now, none of the above have five letters of s,m,i,t,h,a together. The remaining one could go off as the initial.

    I need more hints!

    this is fun. it took me 22 years to realise that smitha is an anagram of my name.... please dont take that long.

    1. It is not Asmith or Smith.A
    2. 13,1,20,8,9.19
    3. read my blog. one of the post has my real name.

    im running out of hints....
    that reminds me, i still dont know ur name. how do i call u? kathak? loveandfreshair? or just K, how u doin?(Joey style)
    mail me: SmithaAnnav@yahoo.com (thats my full name's anagram, but dont bother solving that). this conversation through comments is pretty naive.

    Kathak would do just fine, although I will like the Joey too!

    BTW... I'm surprised you left your e-mail address, the way you did on the blog. Don't scripts and those funny pieces of code that scan through webpages to get e-mail addresses to spam scare you? That ofcourse assuming, you aren't particularly fond of spam, otherwise, my apologies!

    My dear friend the bisexual, and my lover's floor mate,

    since you have discovered the joys of bisexuality, you may figure that others could also have. So kindly refrain from undermining my capabilities, bitch!

    Cheers,

    I think the name says it all. If I call myself a bisexual, then obviously I am one. Another thing. In case you don't realize it, this is not a chat room! You post comments about the story not the sexual preferences of the audience!

    Actually, lover, I'm not too much into virgins. In fact, I avoid them, just to keep the emotions at bay. In case you're wondering, I'm shit scared of commitment freaks. Anyway, I don't do bunny teeth!!

    Hey Smitha,
    I happen to know you're a guy, so here's a proposition.
    You must have noticed my bisexual status, so....
    Do I need to specify further???
    Then you'll come to know what arousing really means!!!

    Hi Smitha,
    The Bisexual's got a point! I don't mind trying that stuff myself, despite my homosexual status.
    What say??

    I was interested in posting a comment to the nice lil story, Kathak has written. But you bitches (you too kathak), rather than doing DSP practicals, have made Kathak's blog a porn site... I can't even dream of commenting here.

    Such.. such... whatever!

    Thanks K for offering to teach me what kinky is. but dont forget, someday i might know who u really are and when that day comes.....i'll surprise u.

    "Are we in a mood today??"

    When on planet earth are these three not like this. And then they manage to get me into their moods!

    "do the world a favour...... "

    Its a lost cause, a total waste of time. Believe me, I've been at it, nah... make that, many of us have been at it for a really long time now. Years, if I could say so.

    Couldn't eat your lunch eh??
    Hmm... so what was the pressure all about?

    im a hot blooded straight indian male. what do u expect would have been going through my head when some girls suggests an orgy? was in a trance, going over steamy scenes that Stanley Kubrick would have been proud of(remember, `Eyes wide shut`?).
    Damn it, i dont have a girlfriend to vent my hyper-tension, if u know what i mean. nor i know where u live, or i would come over there right now and....
    somebody stop meeee....
