Silent Night...

"I now declare you man and wife". Mark paused the wedding video of John and Juliet that he had recorded about 2 years before. He was the best man in their marraige and was shooting the whole wedding just for a personal memorablia. But he didnt know that it would come to haunt back him after a long time.

They all worked together in a firm and were good friends. Infact Mark had feelings for Juliet, but an introvert that he was, he stayed silent. Naturally the more jovial John and Juliet fell in love and got married as well. Ironically Mark was the best man in their wedding and he didnt know if to laugh or cry at his fate. An year before their marraige fell apart and it was a shock for everyone in their fraternity.

Today, on the eve of Christmas morning, Juliet had come searching for some video in Mark's private library and stumbled upon this video. As she saw it she realized what Mark fell about her. The whole video had Juliet in close ups as she smiled, yawned, smirked, cried...every possible emotions of hers was covered. She left the room without saying a word and Mark didnt give any explanation for it.

At 7 PM in the evening, Juliet heard a knock outside her house and she found a letter. It read as such

"Dear Juliet

Somethings are very easy to be understood but very complicated to explain. What you saw at my house was something as such. It would have been left unsaid if you had not found it all for yourself.

Today is Christmas night and on Christmas, one should tell the truth. Words cannot measure the love that I have for you in my heart. To me you are perfect. And my wasted heart will love you...forever....and ever.

Yours
Mark"

She smiled and kissed the letter sobbing. About 200 feet away Mark watched this and walked towards his house. All the words that he could say were "Enough...enough for a lifetime..."

P.S: From Love Actually
P.S1: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

@Revathi
Actually in the movie Juliet is still married to John. In one of the nest scenes in the movie, he confesses his love to her and walks away.
I just took some liberty with that :)

@Curious
In the movie he says "enough for now.."
I wanted a more poetic line :)

Vidya said...

Hmmm.....why did that guy walk away ? He had the guts to tell her what he felt via a letter ? Why not tell it to her directly and see if he had a shot at making her happy again ?

I wonder why ?

Vidya

KK said...

Makka Super story :)
I haven't seen the movie... But this thing so common... I have seen many guys going through this...
But I have the same question as that of Vidya's... Why did he walk off???
I wud have made him stand where ever he was and Julie should have seen him (just by chance) after reading the letter... There is nothing more to say as the letter says it all... Julie runs to Mark and hugs him... We'll cut the shot there... and then start a song in Maldives or some beach place... :D

Happy New year Bud!!! Have fun during ur New Year Eve!!! :D

Harish said...

Another Excellent Short story :)
It has become kinda puzzle for me now. Whenever I start reading your blog, I ask myself "which movie is it from ?"

KK said...

Harish, saw that video... so movie had something like what I said is it?

Naan oru pub poi nall kudimagana intha varushatha arambichen... nee?

Harish said...

@Deepa
I thought i ended this on a positive note :-)

@Ponnarasi
Wish u the same :-)

Harish said...

@Celia
The movie was much better.
I guess you would have loved the visuals though.

Harish said...

@Player
Wow. Well...no wonder that i watch many movies and most of my inspiration comes from them. I guess I am keeping you occupied :-)

Harish said...

@KK
