What if

He stared absent-mindedly at the ceiling, having already given up trying to sleep long ago. Such sleepless nights were quite frequent given the tension between him and his wife.....as if the tensions of his professional life were not enough! Look at her snoring away peacefully after robbing my peace of mind, he thought to himself as he turned and looked at her with contempt. He got up and fixed himself a drink in the hope of easing some of the tension....

Staring at the half empty glass, he thought of all the good times....the times spent in her company....Even after so many years, her memory did not fail to bring a faint smile on his face...She was his best friend, perhaps no one else was closer to him than her.....He loved her beyond limits, but never had the courage to get down on his knees and do the needful.... There was this fear of losing her...perhaps she did not think of him that way....What if, he thought to himself....what if I had proposed to her!! Does she even think about me now, he wondered....perhaps not...She would be way too busy with her own life...Its been what...some five, maybe six years since we last met.....How time flies.....

Miles away, she looked out of the window staring into the darkness...thinking about him! What if.......she thought to herself!

No regrets policy.....hmm..sometimes regrets stem from having done things that you later feel should not have been done :)!!
