I shrug nonchalantly. “Only if you ponder over it. And honestly, I don’t see what’s wrong in grasping true happiness, that’s temporary and comes one in a while, with both hands? As long as I have my priorities set and everything is under control, let me just make best of the situation. I won’t be giving Cecilia any reason to complain. Everything between us will continue to remain the same.”
“Okay,” he finally concedes but it’s fake. He can never buy my logic. He has set very high morals for himself and unfortunately for his clients as well. He’s a marriage counsellor, so saving marriages is expected of him. “Can you throw some light about this special person? I’m curious. Genuinely.”
“She’s a crazy, smart, beautiful girl. A lot like me. Perfect for me. We complete and also contrast each other. She pushes me past my limits and she lets me boss and push her around as well. We get a thrill out of it.”
“A girl?” He catches on things real fast. I’ll be spilling more secrets than I hoped for. “Is there any particular reason you described her as a girl and not a woman? Is she young?”
“Yeah. Nearly twenty years younger than me.”
“Seriously?” His mouth gapes open and his brows furrow. “Nathan, tell me this is some pathetic joke.”
“I wouldn’t joke about something like this. She is that young,” I tell with an impassive face.
“Does she even know what she has gotten herself into? Have you being lying to her, Nathan?” he asks, perplexed.
“Really?” I scorn. “You think I would lie to her just so I get to fuck her? I told you, she understands me the best, at times more than I understand myself. She knows everything about me. She knows I’m in my early forties, married, father of two. She’s also well aware that I’m her boss, working in the same team, though she doesn’t directly report to me.”
There are no more outbursts from him. But his brown irises seem to have dimmed, like the hope that was once shining in them for me and Cecilia just got extinguished. For good.
“Are you sure that she’s not just behind your money or the kind of power and influence you can exert on her career?”
Now it’s my turn to be surprised. This possibility never even struck me. That’s because it’s so ludicrous.
“So, what will you say next? You can’t call her love for me naivety, now. Not buying it. You just want to deter my advances towards her.”
“Honestly, I didn’t see this coming. At this point in time, I didn’t believe you could be attracted to such a young woman. I was sure that you are completely over those days and your past urges. “
With my hand shoved inside my pant pocket, I stand up. “Love is just fucked up that way. It doesn’t care for anything. Age, relations, money, status. These are just the pillars on which our society stands and our adherence to them lays the foundation of such a societal existence. They are meaningless for love.”
Shaking his head, he offers me a small smile. “But Nathan, like it or not, you are also a part of the very same society. So is your family. Repercussions will be profound even on them.”
I walk to his cabin door and talk with my back to him. “And that’s exactly why I told, even if love is permanent with no expiry date, it can only be lived temporarily. It’s something that I have already accepted and come to terms with. This is possibly as much as I can love a person.” I turn to him again. “I’ll see you soon, Doc. But I assure you nothing would have changed. Until then, take your time to process this new info.
