the masquerade ball....

She met him again at a masquerade party...after all these years, yet again!!
even before he revealed himself, she knew it was him....the way he looked into her eyes from behind the mask to the way he swirled her around---everything just confirmed the gut feeling....
they spent the whole evening together...dancing to the music....and it felt just like old times....
the music stopped....everyone around her had taken their masks off...but he hadent!
she hoped he would say something...anything...but he had been silent all evening!
she just felt his presence around her...love was in the air again....little did she know that so was deceit..................just like before!

she wondered how to ask him...tell him that it was him she was waiting for....she felt a part of her wanting to let it go on believing that he had come back because it was meant to be...but another part wanted him to unmask himself...
as she saw the familiar figure returning with her drink, she mustered all her courage and walked upto him....

"u can take off your mask now" she said "i know it is you...i always did"
"i think uve mistaken me for someone else...im sorry but we are nothing but two perfect strangers in this masquerade world" the reply was almost instant...and with that he took off the mask and there stood someone she had never seen before in her life...
indeed they were two perfect strangers...in the faint glow of the ballroom standing face to face, she stood asif frozen...
she was speechless..shocked....how she could she have allowed her heart to believe what it wanted to.....yeah probably thats what she had done!
he walked surprised asif hit by something he had never seen coming...."she's weird" he muttered coldly to the host, pointing at her....

far away at the other end of the ballroom, a shadow dissapeared into the darkness of the night....smiling to himself that he had fooled her again.......it was a narrow escape---the mask was still on!!
the party continued..everyone waited till the end---except for two people...one left laughing and the other crying, both ironically for the same reason.....
