Makeup for the Soul: Second Chances

I have read this so many times and it has always inspired me. Please read and enjoy!


It was their anniversary, and Aisha was waiting for her husband Rajiv to show up. Things had changed since their marriage, the once cute couple who-couldn’t-live-without-each-other had turned bitter. Fighting over every little thing and both of them didn’t like the way things had changed. Aisha was waiting to see if Rajiv remembered it was their anniversary! Just then the door bell rang and she ran to find her husband wet and smiling with a bunch of flowers in his hand.

The two started re-living the old days. Making up for fights, drinking champagne under the dimmed lights and music- and it was raining! It was a perfect day!

Then the phone in the bedroom rang. Aisha went to pick it up and it was a man. “Hello ma’am I’m calling from the police station. Is this Mr Rajiv Mehra’s number?” “Yes it is!” “I’m sorry ma’am; but there was an accident and a man died. We got this number from his wallet; we need you to come and identify his body.” Aisha’s heart sank.!!! She was shocked! “But my husband is here with me?” “Sorry ma’am”, said the police officer, “the incident took place at 2 pm, when he was boarding the train.” Aisha was about to lose her mind. How could this happen?! She had heard about the soul of the person coming to meet a loved one before it leaves!

She ran into the other room. He was not there.

It was true! He had left her for good!! Oh God! She would have died for another chance to mend every little fight! She rolled on the floor in pain. She lost her chance! Forever!

Suddenly there was a noise from the bathroom, the door opened and Rajiv came out and said “Darling, I forgot to tell you my wallet got stolen today”.
