Just because..

" She's a good girl
Loves her mama
Loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl
Crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day living in Reseda

There's a freeway running through the yard
I'm a bad boy 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breaking her heart

And I'm free
Free falling

And I'm free
Free falling
Falling "

I kept listening to each and every word of that song, and smiled so many ironies with my martini. I kept looking at her, right infront of me, sitting on the edge of the bar, laughing along with her friends, with her glass of Vodka, Neat. Her style.
Even the bar tender looked at her and couldn't help smiling, not many people enjoy their drinks and music together in good spirit and with good company, do they? Most of them come here to get rid of the downs of the day, the sadness of their lives,and to mate.
She.. She used to keep saying "I don't share my vodka, but oh oh oh honey I shall share my music!" .
Aaah . Ridhima. She had this something to her, that almost pulled me with the harshest sweetness towards her..

We met through music. When they say "hope keeps the world intact" , in our cases, it was music.
It was one of those random concerts at  Hard Rock. The band was playing "Free falling" by John Mayer.. Thousands of our age came with fancy clothes and beer, a meeky smile and looked much more drunk than they actually were.
Those memories actually make me smile now :)
Kuch toh baat thi. There was some fun in that energy of beer and music. There was some happiness in what flowed into the mikes and out of the speakers, there was some pleasure in those smiles exchanged by us and that  pretty girl who your eye just happened to find and stare at, there was some pride in her returning you that smile,there was something weird yet nice to have blend in with each other's tastes in silence of two different flower colors...

And there is some luck, to have her as your wife, 7 years after you exchanged those smiles.. :)

I nodded a cheer at the bar tender, who was singing along to the song playing... and walked to where my wife sat with our friends, and kissed her on the cheek, just cause... nothing.
Just because.
