A story about rekindling the spark by bringing back the touch in a passionate relationship. #BringBackTheTouch. After all, a gentle ‘touch’ can go a long way in rekindling the lost spark and chemistry between couples.
It kills to be in a long-distance relationship – it really kills, not just your ‘soul’ slowly, but your whole relationship itself. Who better than me to know about it more than anyone else, having gone through it all, myself!
I had worn my lovelist outfit, and my skin glowed with the new lotion I used. Its smell was heavenly. I knew it was having some impact on Sameer too, because he just kept staring at me, the day he finally came. But it wasn't enough, I wanted to make him jealous, possessive; as I was for him. My plan was, when he'd come at my house I'd get a call from my friend ( Shilpi ) who, I'd pretend was a male, and get distracted from Sameer. Shilpi called me exactly as planned, as soon as Sameer and I were left alone by my parents. I started doing lots of husky "hmmm..ummm..." on the phone, as a girl would, speaking to a lover. Sameer sat quiet, watching me narrowly as he found my behaviour quite strange. When Shilpi hung up, I looked at Sameer with a big bright smile and announced, "Oh! Sorry, that was Vishal. I met him recently and he was asking if I was okay after the little accident I had."
"What accident?" Sameer asked, instantly getting by my side with concern in his voice. "You never mentioned anything to me about it."
"Oh its nothing, just a little fracture I had in my hand, the other day. Vishal was close by and took care of it. He's a doctor."
What a big liar I was. But I was loving the attention Sameer was suddenly pouring on me, because next thing he said was an urgent, "Show me where you injured yourself."
I moved my hand slowly towards him and pointed at my arm at an imaginary fracture that never existed. His fingers traced the spot delicately. He had never touched me that way before. It sent my senses tingling.
"Does it hurt?" He asked softly, his hand still holding mine.
"No...I..." I could barely manage to say anything, with him so close. I could feel his warm musky breath, with his touch having already set off millions of butterflies flying inside me; making me go weak in my knees.
"You're so beautiful...so soft," Sameer murmured, as one of his hands left my arm and grazed at my face and neck, while the other held me tight. The lotion was surely having its affect and how. This was certainly more than what I had expected, because the next thing Sameer suddenly said was a seductive, "I want to marry you right away and take you with me."
With that, his lips closed over mine, in a seal, our first kiss.
Rest of the time he was in India, Sameer could barely keep his hands off me. That day, with some planning and magic of parachute advansed body lotion, I brought back our relationship from nearly the jaws of its death.
