George cuddled up to me. We were in the terrace, lying on the mat, gazing up at the queer sky.
I looked at a reddish black sky and he, at a dark green. We were special indeed!
“Are you still thinking about it?”
“It’s a little hard to believe you know! It’s incredible” George said and I agreed.
“But I am still not satiated. She didn’t tell us why I see a red sky and you green. Why does Ashley see a broken sky of all the people?”
“She would tell us tomorrow, Claire. It’s just a few hours. In the meantime, we could actually think about it and reach at our own conclusions you know!” George raised his eyebrows at me.
“Well, red stands for passion, power and danger. Isn’t it? Does that mean I am dangerous?” I laughed.
“But it’s the colour of love too” George said in a gentle whisper
“You are fiery Claire. You are emotionally very intense. You are strong and passionate. Perhaps that’s why you see red”
I was seriously impressed by his explanation.
“And you?” I said “Green stands for freshness, vitality, life and energy. It is justified. You are always jovial and cheerful. You feel so fresh”
“But green also means jealousy and greed” George said “It’s like everything in this universe has a white and a black side, isn’t it?“
“Ashley must be broken inside” I wondered.
We stared into space. The sky appeared calm, almost melting and I chuckled to think that it might reflect me.
“You see, we are different. Remember how you had fought for your freedom, for your job when mom said, you couldn’t work after we married? I supported you. We are different Claire and above all, we are not scared to be different. We don’t live fearing the unknown, submitting to the norms we have created. I would rather see a green sky forever than a blue one”
I looked at George and smiled.
“Will the sky always be like this? Would it rain red liquid?” I thought aloud.
George clasped my hand in his, still looking at the sky.
“A queer sky has stars too, isn’t it Claire? Can you see the stars?”
So, yeah that’s the end! I hope you enjoyed the story. Do share your thoughts with me and help me grow☺️
