As the bike cruised through the Mumbai roads, slowly but steadily leaving the crawling traffic behind, she smiled at the wind brutally hitting her face. She didn’t know where they were going, and she didn’t care. All that mattered to her at this moment was them. Him and her. Him.
She took in a deep breath, trying to conserve his perfume in every last cell in her body. She didn’t know if she’ll ever get to do that again. And at that moment, she didn’t care. All that mattered was now.

She was scared, yet excited.
“I never believed Mumbai had a beach like this!” she gasped.
“I’ll show you things you never believed possible.” He whispered.
And at that moment, holding hands under the stars, with the waves as their witness, they both truly believed, they’d be together forever.
