No Time for Goodbyes ..... (Part 1)

A cell-phone rings in a crowded meeting and all eyes turn to the beautiful lady ... the beautiful, talented and now slightly embarassed Macey, who quickly walks out of the room ... she glances at the caller id and sighs ... she hesitates and then decides to take the call ... but before the caller could say anything, she says ....

"Nathan, didn't I make myself clear last night? I do not want to see you or talk to you! ... Don't call me again ... I am very busy!"

"I'm Sorry ... I just ... "

She doesn't wait for him to finish ... switches off the phone and rushes back to the meeting ...

Its late in the evening when she switches her phone back on ... and almost immediately receives a call ....

"Is this Macey?"

"Yes. Who is this?"

"Do you know a Nathan Miguelle?"

"Yes. He's my fiance But, what is this about?"

"We got your number from Mr.Nathan's cell phone. I am sorry to say this, but he's been in an accident ... "

"But ... but I spoke to him this morning ..." she says, sobbing ...
"How is he? Is he badly hurt?"

"I am sorry Madam."

------
Isn't it sad ... that so many of us don't have time for loved ones anymore? ... that so many of us have screwed up our priorities so much that it doesn't even seem wrong anymore? ...

No time ... not even to say "Goodbye" ....

Guys, I miss ya all ... I see that all of ya have "new post" next to ur names ... Sheesh! ... i wanna come by so bad ...

am still caught up in work ... and blogging and blog hopping has unfortunately taken a backseat ... but decided to write something for a change ... I'd narrated the concept to a dear friend recently ... and as she thought it was okay, thought I'd give it a try ... :)

As always...nicely written. Very thought provoking.

I believe we need to beg two more hours everyday from our creators and those should be spent mandatory on our loved ones:)
