Like everyone who enjoys a drink or two, they too rarely had their wine alone. Everytime they both got high on the drinks, it was either with friends or cousins and once in a while few family members joined in the revelry. But today it was to be a rather different experience.
Tonight as they sat with bottles of their favourite drinks, few cigarettes and some munchies, the skies were filled with millons of tiny shining stars.
Pulling out the corks, they poured the whiskey and topped up their glasses with water. Picking up the glass, she clanked it with her neatly pedicured fingernails and similarly he followed her with an amusing clink on his vial. After getting to know each other months before, it was their first celebration together and as the pleasant sound of their toast faded into the night, they both smiled cheerfully.
As the tranquil darkness covered with soft cold winds brushed their overjoyed hearts, they called out happy cheers and sipped their brews. As the first gentle taste of the whiskey enveloped their throats, they licked the lips with relish and forgetting the world around, they started to enjoy their drinks in leisurely swigs.
As the night slowly faded into passionate chats, topping up the empty glasses they lit their cigarettes and the pungent tobacco smoke sent their heads on an ecstatic spin. With every passing drink, an unexplained exuberance overtook their minds and as they continued to share the curious snippets from their life gone past, the clock started to tick in an never seen hurry.
Surrounded with nothing but the engaging company of each other, it was the best intoxicating time they both ever shared in an unbound affection, with the one they loved dearly.
Tonight, sitting thousands of miles apart, they were enjoying the whiskey all alone but the mobile phones connected their hearts with a new found joy.
