The following day, despite having decided to return to Germany early, walking towards the security gate at the Airport was the most difficult thing for Andy to do. She was after all leaving her heart behind.
“Don’t go Andy”. Words spoken in a much loved voice stopped her in her tracks. “I love YOU. Your voice or lack of it does not matter.”
Andy stood shell-shocked. Kannan had just stated THE reason for her unexplainable behavior.
The fact was - she could not speak. Andy had lost her voice in the accident.
Gently turning her around, Kannan said, “I love you for your passion, courage and conviction. Be my wife, my partner for life. Stay.”
A few steps away stood Vijay, smiling and silently encouraging Andy to allow Kannan into her life.
Held lovingly in Kannan’s arms Andy realized she had indeed come home.
