Chapter 8: Golden hours


Aria had a great love for nature and its beauty. She always yearned for an opportunity to explore and soak in the magnificent views of sunset and nightfall. Over the years, she had discovered many breathtaking locations and was eager to share them with someone. With this in mind, she invited Jay to join her on a nature trip. Jay was thrilled at the chance to go on an adventure with Aria, as he had only been on a solo trip in ages. He checked his motorbike, which had been sitting idle in the garage, and made sure that it was in good condition. Although Jay had always wanted to explore the outdoors, he had never had the chance to do so. Luckily, Aria had planned the entire trip and ensured that they would have an unforgettable experience.

The day of the trip arrived, and Aria and Jay set out on their journey. They drove for hours, listening to music and enjoying each other's company. Finally, they arrived at their first destination, a stunning waterfall that Aria had discovered on one of her previous trips. The waterfall was surrounded by lush greenery, and the sound of the water falling was so calming.

Aria and Jay hiked up to the top of the waterfall, and when they reached the top, they were greeted with a stunning view of slow sunset. After spending some time at the waterfall, Aria and Jay drove to their next destination, a serene lake nestled in the middle of a dense forest. The lake was surrounded by towering trees, and the water was crystal clear. Aria had brought a picnic basket, and they sat by the lake, enjoying the beautiful scenery and had snacks.

After spending some time at the lake, they decided to watch the city's night view from a distance. While walking back to their bikes, Jay received a message that seemed to have him lost in thought. Aria noticed this and asked him what was wrong. Jay smiled and replied, "Nothing." She held his wrist and reassured him, saying, "If you're not okay, please tell me. I might not know your struggles, but I will be here for you as your friend and listen to your words."

Her warm touch and comforting words stirred up emotions in Jay, as he had been craving for this kind of moral support for a decade. He had shared his struggles before, but his mother would lecture him on how a man should be, and his friends would make fun of him.

Jay rested his head on Aria's shoulder and said, "Just for five minutes, let me stay like this." Aria responded by gently tapping his back. For the first time in Jay's life, his mind and heart felt relaxed.

Jay got back to normal and said "Thanks for your words of encouragement and support, I will tell you everything but not today. I want to be out of my daily life for a while so let's drop this topic here and continue our journey".

Aria understood his situation and they continued their travel towards one of the tall buildings.

Aria and Jay stood at the top of the skyscraper, gazing out at the city below. The city's night sky was illuminated with countless lights that twinkled like stars. They both took a deep breath, taking in the fresh air and admiring the view. The sound of cars honking and people chatting echoed in the background, adding to the energy of the city. They felt like they were on top of the world, the perfect vantage point to appreciate the bustling metropolis. As they continued to soak in the stunning scenery, Jay couldn't help but feel grateful to be there together, and he kept glancing at Aria.
