She has just made her exit from the church after having an intense prayer for her sick daughter and at that moment she comes across him in the church gate, they both cannot believe their eyes, they both are speechless and starring at each other. The time seems to stop as it used to be--- when they used to meet each other in their love life; finally she breaks the silence with exasperation and says
“do you think God will grant your prayers? You ditched me; you played with my emotions--- where you were? Where were your promises to be my shadow when I was facing problems and difficulties? All your promises were false and were instance of teenage emotions, I have faced so many obstacles and difficulties in my life but you were not there to help me. It is another thing that every time God has saved me with his miracles and thanks to God that my husband is not at least like you…he has performed all his duties almost perfectly. It’s my bad luck that I have to see your face today, from last eleven years I have always prayed to God not to bring you in front of me."
She was disgorging her anger but he was silent and trying hard not to cough in front of her so that she can’t see the blood coming from his throat, she glanced at him wrathfully and left the place.
He now enters the church, takes the candle and sits before Jesus to make prayer--- this is what he is doing from last eleven years after their break-up, he has not missed even a single day to make prayer for her.
She will never know---those the miracles happened in her life were the outcomes of his prayer.
Probably they will never meet again because after seven days his chemotherapy will start and the result is uncertain as said by the doctors.
