And the next day arose; with a vague slumbering sheepish smile that transpired in my tousled face. Wet was that day, as the rain had been pouring heavily last night. The chill atmosphere in conjunction with the dramatic dark surroundings made me fall in the hands of slumber once again. It was all so sudden that it was as though it all happened in a blink of an eye and so there I lay, slept again.
Sleep, a mystery to all, powerful and mighty. Sleep took a toll on me because it had wasted 5 more hours of my morning to nothing but stillness stuffed body without knowing as time slowly tick-tocked away. Chill had bitten my body as a cool and soothing sensation filled with the nice and cosy touch of my blanket. The combination of cold and warm was enough to make my sleep a more ravishing one. However heavy eyes too had their time, and somehow I slowly opened my eyes. 12.25 PM.
“Oh, damn, I’ve slept too much.”
Well, sort of, I used to sleep over twelve hours every day, which isn’t enough for a lazy guy like me and although I may sleep for an entire day, that day I jumped up in remembrance that I planned to start out something old, freshened up to new from that day onwards.
But vacation had taken a penalty on me as boredom was striking hard. I started finding hard to pass out a day, now that I had stopped getting online in Social Medias too much. It now looked like the sole factor that I do most is getting online because now that I’m free to do anything that I would like, there isn’t any single thing that comes to my mind to be done. It was as though Social Medias made my day pass away.
“What to do?” – I puzzled
There were a million possibilities within the real world. However, nothing seemed to come in reality that precise moment. I sat there on the side of the sofa thinking. (Yeah, I sleep on a sofa because it’s more fluffy and soft.) I glanced outside through the front door. The wet climate still encircled the atmosphere. Chillness filled me with a cool sensation in my body. I got up and went to the door and looked outside.
“Yeah, no hope”
Dark big clouds had already surrounded our region warning all those beneath it that it will pour as it wishes. A cool breeze was making all the leaves flutter showing their happiness for the breeze. But, I too had a little gratitude to this weather for one simple reason. After a long period of scorching hot, this simple cold weather was what I and everyone else had been waiting for all this time. That was a simple day, with no more hot, no more cold, just medium – a perfect and subtle weather indeed. Perfect for cosying inside and sleep. But I had planned to explore the outside world as much as I can from that day onwards. I think that must wait for now. As it’s said – It’s better to be late than never. So I’ll go when the weather’s all suitable for a good day trip. But for now, what will I do? Wondering thoughts mumbled inside.
So today too, it’s home day. Got to find something that won’t turn today into a total disaster.
“Yeah, why not draw some pictures”
A simple idea of mine, but it was enough to fast forward that day’s time.
Believe it or not! I was (not) a brilliant artist back in the old days and my primary drawing was none other than Pokémon. Yep, I was a huge fan of anime from long back. Even now too, I am a huge fan of anime and forever will be. Pokémon was my favourite from childhood onwards and I think I have seen almost all episodes of it, even the new ones and continue to do so. (I may be growing old in body, but still a child in the heart.) I even try to draw during watching episodes and it ends becoming the funniest version that it could possibly be, but still, I was proud to have drawn that much at least. The other sketches that I had were nature based, that I draw looking at painting books, photographs and all. As I said, I’m (not) a brilliant artist. I attempt and feel satisfaction with the result that I get eventually. It would not be the best one there is, but for me, that attempt encompasses a great impact on my happiness.
And so, I took my artistic tool (a pencil, scale and an eraser) and a few A4-sized papers. I searched the web for a few better looking, however simple drawings that I can draw for the instant. I, at last, found out one and decided to draw my first and foremost drawing that I had. It was a drawing of a flower with a sort of graffiti around it. It looked delightfully astonishing for me that time and so I took the sheet of paper and put my pencil forth and drew the curve of the petal.
The curve was done incorrectly. It was just a little misconception in my drawing, nothing much. Maybe it’s because I was so rusted in my artistic skills for now since I had not drawn for a long time. Eraser came to the rescue, rubbing it all away. Now once again, I drew it lightly and closely examined it. It was somewhat ok and so I continued. I continued to draw and erase as that’s what a (not so) professional artist like me would do. And I continued on it until I had completed the outline sketch full. Now it’s time to shade it and finish it. Success! There was still time to pass and so I looked for the next one. I came across a doodle art and was fascinated by it and so I took another sheet and attempted to draw it next. The tiny animals and all the cupcakes were so cute that it absolutely was irresistible to stop drawing. And eventually, the next success had occurred with the completion of that doodle art. There was still time, thus back to my old business – Pokémon. I looked for something to draw and eventually rested my search in my favourite Pokémon – Pikachu. I downloaded the image and drew looking it. It was going alright in the beginning, however, seemed to be a little disaster in the end, not so much, however still a good drawing for me. Pika Pika Pikachu…!
After that, in the evening I was getting sleepy once more that I went to bed and fell asleep. I was somewhat tired and now on, I can sleep as much as I want. I woke up at about 9 PM and went to take a bath. On coming back, I got online for a short time and messaged my friends. I was in the process of writing a chapter of a story at the time. I even made Isha stupid with the story I gave. I had edited a little part and added her part as a cameo in it for fun. I think she was angry at the time. I was laughing so hard that my stomach hurt. Every time I think about it, smiles come on my face. Now it’s time to part again and to sleep for both of us. So it’s Good Night for today.
