Me: Knock! Knock!
[Heart opens the door but not with a smiling face, rather a disturbed one]
Heart: Hey! What do you want? Why do you keep knocking every time. Trust me I feel so irritated sometimes. Can’t you keep calm girl?
Me: (with a pleading look) How can I help? It’s you who keep disturbing multiple times!! I am here to complain.
[Heart lets me enter, though reluctantly]
Heart: Now tell me what is it. Be quick. I do not have much time pondering over one shit. I have to jump to the next trouble.
Me: Why can’t you be silent for some time? Do you always have to put your opinion? Why don’t you let me be me?
Heart: Well you know I love troubling you cause that makes me happy. But you know what, if some day I stop troubling you, you will come running to me and beg me to start again.
Me: Huh! Is that so?? Do you know me more than I do?
Heart: I think I do. I think nobody knows you better than me. Not even you yourself!!
[We both looked at each other in silence. I know not how to confront this]
Me: Okay I agree. But why do you always have to think beyond limits, beyond things you are supposed to do?
Heart: Cause I have high intentions! Can’t sit down quietly at a place and doze off like you.
Me: Okay! But thinking beyond limit!? Will that ever make sense? Do you think you can achieve this?
Heart: Well, I do not think I can’t, either.
Me: Do whatever you wish but please stop bothering me. I am tired. I am not supposed to follow what you want. I have a 99% chance of failing. I can’t! I just can’t! Do you understand that?
Heart: Well if I stop thinking, do you think you will be left with even the rest 1%?
[I could have said nothing more. A complete silence gathered around us. I was so engrossed with the last line my heart said to me, that I forgot to wish Goodbye while leaving the door. As I left, the door closed behind me. Suddenly I turned around…]
Me: Hey but do you think I can convert the 1% into 99?
[A voice came from the other side]
Heart: That’s not my material to think, that’s yours…..
