For a moment she felt weak in the knees when she had to decide what was good for her in that situation . There was no doubt he loved her yet there was something overpowering about him around ,which was not letting her breathe freely …. there was something gravely missing in their relationship . She was literally begging him for his affection and little attention .What was bothering her for so long ? Why was she feeling suffocated ? Nikita could no more adjust and compromise with Yudi’s uncaring nature .. his taking her for granted every single time !!
She had everything .. a successful career as a nature photographer , Beauty , Intelligence , her friends who never let her down and a loving family somewhere settled in the suburbs . Yet she felt unwanted by him and that empty feeling was killing her insides. More difficult because he always ran away from confrontation and when he did argue .. he thought he was always right . She was fed up of being wronged all the time .He didn’t call on her for days nor came back “home ” ( the apartment they lived in together for the last 3 years ) several times and she went crazy calling up his friends and acquaintances asking about his whereabouts and waiting on him endlessly ..
This morning however after spending many sleepless nights pondering on the future of their relationship she tried to strike a conversation with Yudi and talk things over . Like always she made his favourite filter coffee and with the two steaming cups in hand strolled towards the cozy balcony where they ( when things didn’t turn sour )have spent numerous evenings gazing into each other’s eyes under the sky full of twinkling stars .. only to find him screaming on the phone. He was yelling at his mother regarding his sister Tara’s marriage and also abusing the groom’s family with quite unacceptable filthy connotations .
Still holding the two cups of coffee in her hands all this while Nikita stood there listening and she had an amusingly funny feeling, a realisation .. how could she have at the first place fallen for a guy who had no regard for anyone but himself .. he who always showed least respect for women.
When he hung up on his mother , Nikita already had made her ” DECISION ” !!
She managed to tell him .. It’s over between them and walked away with an overwhelming sense of freedom and self respect .
