One Fine Morning

Adorning her night gown, as she sauntered through the cobbled walk that ran in the middle of a terraced garden, some drops of dew which until then had conveniently rested on the canopies of white bougainvillea fell on her hair.  One of the drops slid through her forehead and fell on her cheeks while brushing through her lashes and leaving its imprint. She raised her neck and the drop slithered over it, only to stop as the trail thinned.

She could feel the water on her skin. It tingled her and irritated her but she left it untouched despite an impulse to wipe it off her skin. She took few steps and sat on the steps after clearing them off the white flowers that had carpeted them. She then laid down on her back and closed her eyes. She wanted to lost into nothingness but found herself smelling the air.

A gentle breeze blew but its brevity left her wanting for more. She then opened her eyes,  gave the faintest of the smiles and got up to do her chores.

You were imagining of feeling the water on your skin? It tingled you and irritated you but you left it untouched despite an impulse to wipe it off your skin? ugh! :P

Dude.. Read what I wrote more carefully, though I do think that the explanation ought to be more elaborate. I was actually imagining myself in a same SETUP. And that would be walking on such a path in morning.. BUT like u said, imagining the feeling of water on my skin is "UGH !", so I chose to put a girl there..
Hope it explains.. :P

@TJ: I wud take ur comment at its face value and wud assume that it wasn't sarcasm and that you were really amused by the explanation :P
So thank u for the appreciation :P

@Ankit
yap explanation seems more correct only with a girl ...
how easy it is to imagine a delicate beautiful girl doing this..and how odd imagining a boy doing this so i guess you are right a girl here looked rather nice :)

nice post you captured scene beautifully.

@Shreya: Thanks.. And you are right.. Its easier and in fact natural to associate girls with these tender acts..
