dark night

Alone in a new city- Pilot stories

Introduction

So, I’m pretty upset today, sitting alone in this dark shabby messy room, accompanied by 2 other older weird guys I don’t even know, and I don’t know why the whole place smells like fried fish all the time!! I used to like fried fish!!

I do not like to remember this again but let me describe what happened today. My fear since a few days, that has been weighing my heart down finally happened. My father went back to Mumbai. Left here all alone. The only light I see when I sit in this dark room is flying!!.  I cannot still believe that I’m going to fly really soon.

The departing- All alone

So let me describe the parting with my father, it was around 6pm today, we were on a busy noisy street, and there was a heavy traffic jam too, he had a black bag slung around his shoulder, and my father with a smile said, “Do well”, we shook hands and then he turned around and walked, and I stood there for a while looking at him go.

As I stood there, I asked myself, what if I had been closer to my family??, would this parting be any different? I mean it’s one of the most difficult situations in my life and it ends with a “Do well”!!. I felt my heart sinking and weighed down by grief, I’m going to be all alone. You know people say, you realize a person’s value after he/she is gone, and now when I’m away from my family, I realize their value. I stood there till he vanished into the crowd and still looking for him. I turned around and started walking back to my room, totally blank and filled with grief.

Conclusion

Reached the room to see my roommate playing PS in the dark engulfed in smoke, I don’t know why these people dont let me turn on the lights even when it is dark. It is so suffocating. I felt so tired and drained, I laid down on my bed, looking at the dark roof occasionally lit by the TV and then just to pas some time and lift up my mood, i started typing all this on my phone and does it make me feel better, No, but I have nobody to talk to anyway so it makes me feel a bit more secure, maybe? Anyway I’m off to sleep, I’m hoping that, time will make me a stronger and better person!!
