(he thinks with deep sadness...How I wish I could have this moment of time back again)

A sudden blinding flash of light..and then pure darkness......


"You have a voice message" His phone says
He opens the voice message from his wife :" You have a surprise tonight, come home as soon as possible"

He remembers they'd been wanting to take a break for a long time a go out for dinner. He picks up the phone and dials his wife's number


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

keek..keek...keek..keek..."the number you are trying to reach is currently unavailable,please call again later."
"if you are a vodafone customer press * to leave a voice sms,thank you"
(and the line goes dead.)
oh!!God.. damn it!!
(frustrated jeff,stops his car by the side of the road, and gets down, to relieve his mind from pressure, he pulls out a cigrette and takes a deep puff and leaves slowly.)
"come on baby come on,connect connect connect damn it...connect."
finally, the phone rings.....

Meenakshi (mcoolshi) | 55 comments Another call.
triing triiing..
He answers
Yes Jeff here who's on the line?
It's me your boss
comes a husky voice from the other side.
Taken aback by this sudden call Jeff fumbles while asking what it was that drove his boss to call at this hour.
"Could you stay in the office till 9 today?
I have a meeting fixed up with your clients.Remember they are very special to us, to me and to you and your promotion."His boss says with a pinch of threat in his tone.

"For once,at least, I need to grow a spine!!" Jeff thought as he steeled himself to say he couldn't , "Am sorry boss! We'll have to ask Andrew to cover in for me on this one..."

Jeff is surprised to hear his boss burst out laughing . After a moment " Hey Jeff! You on some super pill or what?!" his boss asks voice loaded with merriment

Jeff had spent a lifetime answering such questions which in fact weren't supposed to be answered. For once he waited and right on cue his boss continued , " Whatever it may be I love it.You finally have become a man I can respect for the simple reason that you have learnt to say 'No'!!'
His boss went on voice finally back to it's usual gruffness,"So fix it up with Andrew to do the needful and meet me the day after if you still have the steel in you, it just might get you a better office with a better view!"

Jeff was taken aback!
His boss had agreed and for some insane reason was in fact throwing him the standard promotion hint..'Better room..Better view'

"Keep it simple!", his inner voice told him.

"Thank you, sir!" He replied and he last heard a gruff acknowledgement as his boss finally ended the call.

"Wow!" He thought, "No! Scratch that!!" "WOW WOW WOW!"

"I feel light now."
slowly leaning back,puts his head on the head rest ,and closes his eyes for a moment.
"please doctor do something,save my family.they are the soul of my life."
"Doctor,please save them."
"i am sorry jeff,its out of our hands,they have already been......"
"you are lieing doc,they are not de...aaa."

jeff wakes up with a jerk.

he wipes out the sweat on his forehead, and with his both hands ,he rubs his eyes and gives a glance at his watch.

"oh god ,i have been sleeping for an hour now!!."

"What was that creepy scary day dream all about when I should have had a dream like winning the Olympics or something given the fact that I just talked down my boss?!!" thought Jeff..


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

"Hi Honey! As promised I am on my way to pick you up ! Catchya!"
(Wow! See u soon then, bye)
He hangs up and floors the accelerator hanging just beyond the speed limit...

Meenakshi (mcoolshi) | 55 comments He drives too fast to notice the board saying "narrow lane ahead, drive slow"
As he drives faster and faster, he keeps thinking about his truimph over his boss.He had never expected his boss to be so lenient but as they say; you'll never know untill you try.
He was so absorbed in his thought that he did not notice the truck coming from the other side of the road.Although the trunk honked and honked but he did not listen until it was just two inches away from his car.When he saw the truck at last his eyes widened and his mouth flew open.With all his might,he pushed the stearing wheel to the other side and closed his eyes.
His car rotated a few times and came to a sudden halt.
When everything seemed quiet, Jeff opened his eyes.He started his engine and looked out of the window.
THe truck driver waved his head out of the window and spoke a word or two of abuse.Then he started his engine and fled.
Jeff came out of the car.He looked at its condition.Not a scratch on his car.
Was this some kind of omen? He asked himself.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

his heart was in his pants....shivering as if he had tremors,he opened the door of the car,saying to himself ,something is wrong....
i have a feeling that everything had happened once before.
of course,it cant be.
but why do i have this strange feeling.
now feeling nervous he takes out his marlboro pack and pulls the cigrette,and lits it.he,takes a looong puff....and releases it slowly.saying to himself ,dont worry everything is fine.you are alive!nothing had happened....

"Never!Never again! ....." mumbles Jeff to himself making a silent promise to himself to value what life had given him, chance and a beautiful wife..
Something tells him that he has been given a fresh lease of life.
A new Jeff pulls into the parking lot of 'Indian Spice' , his wife's favourite restaurant knowing everything was going to be all right.....

the end ....

(great going with the difficult initial part of writing backwards folks! `Great story flow too!)
