Hello people, Firefly is back with another post. I have shared an incident from my life here. ☺☺

What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favourite person? How did you feel?

Daddy! This one word means everything to me. He is one person above everything else in this universe. Childhood was so much fun with him. We used to travel so much together. Here’s my favourite picture with my cute family. It was taken in Jammu. 😻☺


I might never confess this, I might keep fighting and arguing with him on every possible issue, but yes, he is my favourite person. 💙 I have never stayed away from my parents EVER! And I wouldn’t even want to, cause I think it would be unbearable. I’d keep crying all day and come back home eventually. 😂

So, there was this one incident I remember very precisely. When I was in 8th standard, our school took us to an Educational Tour to Kerela. It was a 9 day tour. As my Mumma is a teacher herself, she came with us too. But, I had to stay apart from Papa. 😐 I used to miss him so badly.

There was this mobile phone that I was allowed to carry, and it was a bit new to me. On the night we reached the Hotel, I typed a long text telling him all about how I missed him and what all we saw, but I couldn’t even find the ‘Send‘ button. 😩 It was so stupid of me.

He used to call me every day for those nine days. Those calls were so precious. It felt painful. Though, we enjoyed a lot, there was him missing! Haha, distances invoke the hidden unsaid emotions. 😹

Then, it was the last day of the Tour. I had literally enjoyed A LOT, cause those ice-creams and cold drinks had resulted in a sore throat. We were in the train, heading back. And suddenly, my phone flashed ‘Papa calling!’. I couldn’t control my happiness. 😻

But when I pressed that Green button and tried to say Hello, I didn’t hear my voice! 😨 I couldn’t speak, my throat was choked so badly. He kept saying ‘Hello Beta, are you there?’, and I was in shock. I wasn’t able to speak even a single word.

It was like someone pressed the Mute button on me. Like the words were wanting to escape but something was pulling their leg!😹 That day I realised what it was like to experience extreme happiness and extreme helplessness in a single moment. 

So, this was my story. What’s yours? Who is your favourite person? How did you feel when you had to stay away from them? Would love to know in the comments section. ☺☺
