HOW MUCH MORE?

HE TOOK HER HAND WARMLY AND TURNED OVER TO HER SAYING “DO YOU TRUST ME?” THAT QUESTION SENT A COLD SHIVER THROUGH HER BODY, SHE WAS SHOCKED BECAUSE THEY HAD BEEN THROUGH A LOT LATELY. THERE WERE TIMES THAT ALL ODDS SEEM SO EVEN AND THUS MISTAKES WERE BOUND. SHE BELIEVED HIM AND TRUSTED HIM THROUGH ALL THESE TIMES, TIME OF RUMOURS, MOMENT OF LIES, CIRCUMSTANCES OF HOPE BEING GONE; BUT SHE BELIEVED HIM. NOW, HE ASKED HER, “DO YOU TRUST ME?” SHE SMILED SLOWLY AND LOOKED INTO HIS EYES GIVING HIM AN ASSURANCE THAT ALL WAS WELL. SHE NEVER DOUBTED HER BELIEF IN HIM FOR HE WAS JUST A REGULAR GUY. HE SMILED BUT IN THAT SMILE LIES SOME FEAR. FEAR OF NO TRUST AND BELIEF. HE COULD NOT HAVE WISHED FOR ME; HE WAS NO SAINT IN HIMSELF BUT HOW COULD HE SAY TO HER ALL HIS MISDEEDS, THIS PONDERS HIM FOR SO LONG. SOON, IT EITHER HE GAVE UP OR SHE LEFT HIM. THE MOMENT WILL SURELY COME. SHE ASKED HIM, DO YOU BELIEVE IN US? HE TURNED AROUND AND TOLD HER “I WISH” MAYBE SHE DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT HE BELIEVED IN HER BUT HIMSELF, NO.

THREE DAYS LATER……………………………..

ALL DRESSED IN BLACKS, TEARS ON THE WEAK FACES, THE MEN KEEPING A MUTED FACE. HE WAS GONE, GONE FOREVER TO ANOTHER WORLD. THE PRESIDING PRIEST GOT UP AND ASKED THE CONGRESS, “WHAT IS TRUST?” THE VERY QUESTION WE DO NOT ASK OURSELVES. DO WE REALLY TRUST? SHE THOUGHT SHE KNEW IT ALL BUT NO, SHE WAS LIVING WITH A STRANGER ALL HER LIFE. HE WAS A CHEAT, PLAYER, HEART BREAKER AND ALL THAT. AT HIS BURIAL, ALL THE HEART-BROKENS WERE THERE, THEY CAME TO LAUGH AT HIM FOR HE CAUSED THEM PAIN. SHE STOOD THERE CRYING AT HER FOOLISHNESS FOR TRUSTING HIM. BUT HIS SPIRIT WAS HOVERING AROUND THE AIR AND HE WAS IN TEARS; “SHE WAS NOT A SAINT ALSO”, IF SHE DIED TODAY, HER SECRETS WERE GOING TO BE KNOWN TO MORTAL. HE WEPT AND WEPT WISHING HE KNEW ALL THESE. HE DIED BECAUSE HE THOUGHT SHE NEVER TRUSTED HIM…………………………
