Love Beyond Desert's Heat....

by rekhanshiraghava
"Marvin! Get up!" Aalia said, remaining close to her companion in the desert heat.
"We should be close."
There was nothing in sight except for exposed mountains, sand, reptiles, rocks, desert plants, tumbleweeds, and their own quickly vanishing impressions. For the most part it was sun and the fierce glare of sun. Some place, in some course, there was a street. Some place there was a desert garden. In any case, to the untrained eye, the breadth appeared to be interminable nothingness with not a hint of puzzle.

"C'mon, get up," Aalia rehashed. "You can do it! We need to continue moving. You and I are going to make it!"

Marvin did not move. He was alive, yet he detected no life in him. His eyeballs were dry. His lips were part and dried. In spite of the fact that he had a wide cap covering his shaved head, he trusted that he was cooking something on it. He needed water, rest and genuine nourishment.
Aalia drew out an index.
"Here! Take a gander at her! Is it accurate to say that she isn't lovely?"
Aalia was demonstrating to him a photograph from a match making index that included photographs of potential male and female mates, their estimations, identities and interests.
Picking any mate from the index was one of the motivations in a survival challenge Aalia and Marvin had entered. The other motivating force was one million dollars. They paid fifty thousand dollars each to bear the cruel states of the desert and finish the labyrinth in a specific number of days. They required just completing the diversion together and each of them could choose a mate from the index and take the cash. On the off chance that they didn't care for the mates, regardless they had the million.

The thought originated from a match-production organization, Together Ltd., who needed to join their administration with the possibility of a prevalent survival TV program by making it exciting and all the more interesting.

The tests were labyrinths and fortune chases through troublesome situations in fourteen days. The tenets said that they couldn't go around evening time, making the desert labyrinth much more strenuous. Every labyrinth had three departure courses and survival things, for example, water, sustenance and other valuable things, were covered up along the courses.

"I couldn't care less about the ladies. I don't think I ever did," Marvin said, beginning to slur his words following ten days of the exhausting trek through the desert. He had just four days left to finish the undertaking, however these four days, they knew, would be the most exceedingly awful.

"Sand! That is whatever I can consider. I have sand on every last bit of my body, in each opening. The majority of the gaps of my body! When I walk, and my skin meets other skin, it resembles sandpaper rubbing sand paper. My rear end is a sandpit. But then you, you have the water."

"So you conveyed me to the desert to execute me?" Aalia inquired.

"That is correct!" Marvin hopped on Amy and started to stifle her.

It was an amusement they played. One would say, 'So you conveyed me here to execute me,' and the other would attempt to stifle the other.

Marvin moved off Aalia and Aalia snickered.

Aalia had opposed obliging Marvin's developing pessimism, yet she submitted now and drew out a water bottle. She sought it would last after a couple of more hours, since she would never know when or where there were other concealed stashes of water containers on course.

Marvin tore it from Aalia's hand and started to eat up it. He would have completed the container, yet Amy took it back and place it in her sack.

"Shouldn't something be said about the cash?" Aalia said. "One million in the event that we simply traverse this. Shouldn't something be said about your fantasy venture?"

"I couldn't care less! I could drink a container of water despite everything i'd be consuming. I need to be home with a decent book, listening to music, and anticipating the up and coming painting work appearing at the craftsmanship exhibition. You can have the cash."

"We both need to complete," Aalia reminded him. "No prizes for only one."

Marvin stood up and afterward caved in face down to the sand. He was depleted and also hot. The sun consumed each particle of water noticeable all around, making it hard to relax.

"You ought to have picked another person for this," Marvin said when he sat up. "I'm not in on a par with shape as you. In any case, then I'm not a survivalist. Why me?"

Aalia frequently needed to stop as well, however they were excessively near the end to stop. They just needed to discover some way and they would have achievement.

"I didn't pick you. You asked me!" Aalia said.

"Alright, fine. You're correct. I asked you. You being here bodes well. You're fit as a fiddle and you're a superior buddy for the desert. Indeed, that, and you have this flawless body."

"I do?" Aalia said bashfully, posturing herself and strolling around like a model, with a deliberately huge grin with teeth. "You think I have an immaculate body?"

Her grin woke him up. His sand secured face took a gander at her sand secured face—and now wide grin—and offered his own grin behind the covering.

Marvin raised his eyebrows and found her and down, and gestured a few times.

"Goodness better believe it!" Marvin said. "Furthermore, I ought to know!"

"Stop it, you dolt," she said, giggling and punching him in the arm.

Her conditioned structure was no mischance. Aalia not just utilized regularly an enrollment at a rec center, however she would always agree to testing open air enterprises. She could never call her body "flawless," however the activity joined with healthy skin, great sustenance, and Kung Fu surely may make some individuals think so. From Marvin, regardless, it was a compliment. Not at all like most men, Marvin had seen many bodies all through the world , he had been in number of connections.

This demeanor about practicing was infuriating to Aalia. She strove for quite a long time to constrain him into trekking, biking, outdoors, tennis, climbing, etc, and he would here and there oblige, he said, "in light of the fact that I adore you." His actual solaces were books, traditional music, and craftsmanship. The main reason he would every so often go with her on her undertakings was on the grounds that she would go on his exercises, to his shows, musical dramas and displays. He required her organization, he asserted, on the grounds that he had nobody else. When he discovered somebody alluring, she dislike his leisure activities. Truly he never endeavored to discover dates and depended on Aalia.

Envision her astonishment when he requesting that her go along with him in this great challenge. She knew he was baffled with his absence of accomplishment finding the right lady, so she could perceive how the list of provocative ladies may energize him. The requirement for cash was likewise an inspiration. Marvin was an instructor with a little compensation. His fantasy was to fire up an association "to change the world," so the million dollars was exceptionally enticing. The huge riddle to Aalia was Marvin supposing he could win the lady and the cash through difficult physical movement and perseverance. When he thought of the thought, Aalia at first said no on the grounds that the list viewpoint troubled her. She couldn't see her own future with some obscure person out of an index, despite the fact that the men were frequently very alluring. The test of the desert intrigued her however it was not all that unique in relation to ventures she had effectively managed without Marvin. She doesn't have anything to demonstrate. The cash was not as imperative to her as it was to Marvin, however she would not like to lose her fifty thousand. The central variable for her was the considered Marvin with some lady who may not keep an eye out for him in the desert. Aalia on a few capers had seen numerous much fitter individuals than Marvin have mischances or breakdowns. Her closest companion Marvin was not going to be one of them.

She at last concurred the length of Marvin would prepare with her. They entered their names and held up to check whether they would be the couple picked. Following a while of preparing, they both passed the physicals and sat tight for the day. Marvin's body had significantly transformed from the preparation, yet Marvin was Marvin, and, with nothing unexpected to Aalia, on day ten in the desert the old Marvin showed up in full shading. She additionally realized that his new body would vanish once Marvin was home and came back to his old propensities. This body was just a front with no future.

The conditions were in reality compelling in each situation, however the desert labyrinth, with its most astounding prize of a million dollars, was the most tiring. No couple had yet finished it. The primary snag was not absence of nourishment, water, or assurance, but rather the desert's impact on the brain. Each of the couples before them had no less than one part who got to be ridiculous or began to see hallucinations and illusions. One had assaulted the other amid a fancy. However nobody was truly harmed in light of the fact that nobody was ever in threat of losing anything other than cash and pride. Help was accessible at all times. Somebody continually, even while they were resting, was observing their vitals starting from the earliest stage. A satellite was shooting every stride and them two had mouthpieces on them. In this sense, the circumstance was never life-debilitating. On the off chance that Marvin's wellbeing was bargained, the medicinal group would have evacuated him.

By the tenth day Marvin had achieved the stage rationally of the earlier leave hopefuls. He no more thought about the prizes. He didn't have Aalia's mental experience and physical stamina earned from various backcountry undertakings. He needed to persuade Aalia to stop and go home. His body and soul were so drained and his brain as a general rule now saw this entire thought as doltish, an expensive however capable lesson. He should surrender his fantasy, he believed, be reasonable, and acknowledge his single status. All things considered, he had Aalia.

On account of her experience and certainty, Aalia could be more down to earth. She had considered approaches to keep Marvin focussed on the objective and in the meantime occupy him from the inconvenience he was encountering and the thoughtless region they confronted every day. Presently she had achieved an impasse. No thoughts went to her with the exception of the old ones—make him furious or make him upbeat—however she had little confidence in both of these alternatives. Her endeavors to make clashes at last fizzled. They had contentions, however they never kept going. In the event that she was mean and destructive, she may lose her closest companion. Making him furious, she immediately finished up, would not work.

Make him glad? Up to now just two things about setting off to the desert appeared to energize him: getting cash for his fantasy venture and discovering somebody who adored him. She had reminded him frequently about the cash and the lady he would win in the event that he finished the challenge. That strategy had worked up till today. Presently neither of them appeared to be driving him. Despite what might be expected, he chuckled about getting a lady out of this drudgery.

"I thought you needed somebody to love you," Aalia said while she was utilizing the binoculars the backers offered them to discover indications of fortune or 'labyrinth dividers.'
They had never had sexual intercourse and they had just kissed once on the lips, when they were twelve. The kiss was not important. They had additionally utilized each different as dates or oversaw each other to moves and different capacities. Being with each other was never uncomfortable and on a couple events individuals asked why they were not together, to which they both said the same thing, 'there's no secret.'

'No puzzle. Would I be able to end up secretive?' Amy pondered. 'I question it. Four days is a lot of time to go from outsider to sweetheart, yet from companion to sweetheart is a more troublesome jump. The more we know somebody, the more improbable the individual will fall into the traps of enchantment.'

For Aalia's situation, the assignment appeared to be impossible. There was no secret, just reality of their numerous years of companionship. Regardless, the difficulty motivated a thought. This circumstance appeared the perfect time to pose a question that had bothered her last couple of years. Perhaps the inquiry itself may keep Marvin alarm.

Marvin was resting now in the cool shade under the umbrella. He appeared to have quieted down a bit. Aalia went along with him.

"Try not to leave just yet," Aalia said.

"Why? See, I'm sad. Of course, physically I may, may make it, yet I don't have your mental determination. I see everything differently. The desert is a condemnation. Once in a while I need to attack the entire thing by cutting myself. What's happening in my mind is disgraceful. I'm having those dreams the organization cautioned us about. I know you'll lose your cash, however I'll pay you back. Four more days! Is it true that you are joking? That is fierce."

"I need to converse with you."

"What is it?"

"You and I are thirty years of age," Aalia began.

"Alright. Yes. Where's this going? We're the same age. Old society."

"I was considering… " Aalia began to say.

"… why we're here in the desert under an umbrella..?" he completed her idea.

"No. All things considered, yes. We're both still unmarried," Aalia said obtusely. "Don't you ponder… ?

"My god, Aalia, don't you stress, you'll see somebody, you're excellent, you're keen, you're benevolent, you have an immaculate body.'

'Stop it with the body!" she said.

"In any case, you simply have elevated requirements," Marvin said.

Aalia took a beverage of water, offered it to Marvin who shockingly did not take it.

"Possibly we ought to be in that list," Aalia said. "Possibly we're on the wrong end.'

Marvin turned upward under his hood and gazed at her.

"Truly?" He inquired.

She gestured.

"I'm apprehensive, Marvin," Aalia said, "truly anxious. Aren't you anxious?"

"Apprehensive of what?" He asked, moving in the direction of her.

"I'm never going to locate the opportune individual. Never. I've dated a wide range of folks, yet nothing works out. The majority of my companions appeared to be with the wrong individuals. They're continually griping. I don't need that, however I would prefer not to kick the bucket alone. Do you ever feel that way?"
Like a major white cloud drifting in the blazing sun, a generous respite hung there for quite a while, unwilling to move, yet prepared to give shade, permitting time for reflection.

She knew Marvin was in the same circumstance. He had dated a great deal less and had far less individuals keen on him.

Marvin had considered being separated from everyone else except on each event the substance of Aalia filled his psyche. For whatever length of time that Aalia was around some place, he'd be fine, he thought.

"What's more, I think, I believe, you're the reason only i'm," Aalia at last admitted.

Another delay mediated, a sufficiently long interruption for Marvin to consider his own particular life.

"Well that is bad," Marvin said. "Since you're the explanation behind me as well. Indeed, even in this circumstance, I thought, 'who thinks about the fifty thousand, I have Aalia.'"

"It's bad," Aalia said. "Not great by any stretch of the imagination."

"Indeed, it's terrible," Marvin concurred.

A slight however enduring wind cleared over the area, raising the sand. Marvin held the umbrella toward the wind. Both clustered near each different as the sand zoomed by them.

Abruptly they both stood up and gazed at each other. Together they yelled:

"So! You conveyed me to the desert to slaughter me."

"Yes!" They both replied.
Aalia pushed Marvin to the ground and hopped on him. They started to gag each other in the meantime.

This time, when Aalia quit stifling her old companion of twenty-four years and as yet straddling him, they gazed at each other for some time, their appearances a couple inches from each other, however their countenances were totally secured by sand and a sun defender, and grinned. Their eyes investigated each other and saw a great many minutes together and both pondered who they would be without the other. It was a minute of disclosure and acknowledgment for them two.

The cloud moved over them and the wind ceased for a minute.

Aalia, who had examined the desert for a while before this test, turned her eyes quickly to the scene around them. Presently she saw this unforgiving environment as enchantment.

She took her eyes back to Marvin and by one means or another he and she, loaded down with sand, were one. To somebody out yonder, they would converge with the desert. The inclination moved her nearer than any time in recent memory to him. She needed to say something that communicated how she felt, yet there were no words, only a sentiment holding.

Aalia began to move off him, when Marvin said,

"Where you going?"

Aalia turned back and pretty much as her face met his once more, he held her head tenderly and gave a long sandy kiss. It was their second kiss, yet this one was considerably more essential.

They completed the challenge, yet did not pick mates from the inventory. In that decision the puzzle had become known.

We may ask, in the event that we put stock in such things, whether the desert had really attracted them there to join its abnormal cluster of animals who have figured out how to get by in the burning warmth of the sun of connections.

Labyrinth dividers were sand hued posts that characterized the course of the labyrinth, however were hard to see until you drew close to them. The main piece of information was that they made a slight shadow, which in the binoculars was a dull line.

"Take a gander at these ladies!" Aalia said, hauling out the magazine once more. "They're ravishing. This lady could be the one,"

"Are you genuine?" Marvin sneered. "You truly believe I'm going to discover genuine romance in an inventory? That doesn't seem like you. How edgy do you think I am? I don't have confidence in intimate romance. I just thought, I thought, you know, I don't recognize what I thought, to be completely forthright. I've had a go at everything else, and these ladies were so hot, I mean, who knows, it's worked for others. Disregard it! It's imbecilic. The cash was well-spent to show me a lesson. So we should leave. I'll figure out how to pay your offer. I can't take an additional four days of this. I believe I'm becoming ill. The desert reminds me how desolate my heart is."

"That is lovely, yet we're not done," Aalia said. "Your heart isn't fruitless. Furthermore, you're not wiped out. Not so much wiped out. On the off chance that you were, they'd be hurrying in here.

"Alright, perhaps I'm not passing on, but rather I feel a torment here in my mid-section and I need to hurl, and I'm beginning to see things, particularly about myself, and I don't care for it."

"Proceed, hurl," Aalia said. "You have an entire desert. Simply don't whimper. You and I can make it."

Aalia hustled off ahead. She saw something. It resembled a fortune.

"Alright, you're not being decent," Marvin shouted after her. "At this moment, I require a sweetheart, not a closest companion."

That was it, Aalia thought as she ran. He needs a sweetheart.

The fortune was an extensive umbrella to shade them from the sun. They had found a littler umbrella in a past fortune; however this one was so much better. It was sufficiently huge to shade them both. With each fortune, there was additionally a major jug of water and some vitality bars.

In any case, how can she as of right now persuade her closest companion to consider her to be a sweetheart? They knew each other so well. They could discuss each other's humiliating propensities. They would share close points of interest of their dreams, and describe stories of their dates. Aalia talked first with Marvin when she thought about whether she had an irregularity on her bosom. Nothing was covered. Marvin knew each and every disposition and identity characteristic of Aalia. He knew every last bit of her assessments and characteristics. The most unremarkable matters, for example, her slightest most loved nourishments and when she got a kick out of the chance to poo were as well known to him as his own particular propensities. When she got to be wiped out with a serious influenza while her folks were on vacation in Europe, she requested him, no of her lady friends. For a week Marvin bolstered her, washed her, transformed her bedding and garments, dozed close to her, and listened to her wooziness. Not once did he whine or anticipate that she will pick any other person.
They had never had sex and they had just kissed once on the lips, when they were twelve. The kiss was not important. They had additionally utilized each different as dates or oversaw each other to moves and different capacities. Being with each other was never uncomfortable and on a couple events individuals asked why they were not together, to which they both said the same thing, 'there's no secret.'

'No secret. Would I be able to wind up puzzling?' Amy pondered. 'I question it. Four days is a lot of time to go from outsider to sweetheart, however from companion to sweetheart is a more troublesome jump. The more we know somebody, the more outlandish the individual will fall into the traps of temptation.'

For Aalia's situation, the undertaking appeared to be unfavorable. There was no riddle, just reality of their numerous years of companionship. Regardless, the quandary enlivened a thought. This circumstance appeared the perfect time to pose a question that had bothered her last couple of years. Possibly the inquiry itself may keep Marvin caution.

Marvin was resting now in the cool shade under the umbrella. He appeared to have quieted down a bit. Aalia went along with him.

"Try not to leave just yet," Aalia said.

"Why? See, I'm sad. Of course, physically I may, may make it, however I don't have your mental grit. I see everything in an unexpected way. The desert is a condemnation. Some of the time I need to disrupt the entire thing by cutting myself. What's happening in my mind is despicable. I'm having those fancies the organization cautioned us about. I know you'll lose your cash, however I'll pay you back. Four more days! Is it accurate to say that you are joking? That is ruthless."

"I need to chat with you."

"What is it?"

"You and I are thirty years of age," Aalia began.

"Alright. Yes. Where's this going? We're the same age. Old people."

"I was considering… " Aalia began to say.

"… why we're here in the desert under an umbrella..?" he completed her idea.

"No. All things considered, yes. We're both still unmarried," Aalia said obtusely. "Don't you ponder… ?

"My god, Aalia, don't you stress, you'll see somebody, you're delightful, you're savvy, you're benevolent, you have an immaculate body.'

'Stop it with the body!" she said.

"Be that as it may, you simply have exclusive requirements," Marvin said.

Aalia took a beverage of water, offered it to Marvin who shockingly did not take it.

"Possibly we ought to be in that index," Aalia said. "Possibly we're on the wrong end.'

Marvin turned upward under his hood and gazed at her.

"Truly?" He inquired.

She gestured.

"I'm apprehensive, Marvin," Aalia said, "truly perplexed. Aren't you anxious?"

"Apprehensive of what?" He asked, moving in the direction of her.

"I'm never going to locate the opportune individual. Never. I've dated a wide range of folks, yet nothing works out. A large portion of my companions appeared to be with the wrong individuals. They're continually griping. I don't need that, however I would prefer not to bite the dust alone. Do you ever feel that way?"

Like a major white cloud skimming in the blazing sun, a compassionate delay hung there for quite a while, unwilling to move, however prepared to give shade, permitting time for reflection.

She knew Marvin was in the same circumstance. He had dated a great deal less and had far less individuals intrigued by him.

Marvin had contemplated being separated from everyone else except on each event the substance of Aalia filled his brain. For whatever length of time that Aalia was around some place, he'd be fine, he thought.

"What's more, I think, I believe, you're the reason only i'm," Aalia at last admitted.

Another interruption mediated, a sufficiently long respite for Marvin to consider his own particular life.

"Well that is bad," Marvin said. "Since you're the explanation behind me as well. Indeed, even in this circumstance, I thought, 'who thinks about the fifty thousand, I have Aalia.'"

"It's bad," Aalia said. "Not great by any stretch of the imagination."

"Truth be told, it's terrible," Marvin concurred.

A slight however enduring wind cleared over the area, raising the sand. Marvin held the umbrella toward the wind. Both clustered near each different as the sand zoomed by them.

All of a sudden they both stood up and gazed at each other. Together they yelled:

"So! You conveyed me to the desert to execute me."

"Correct!" They both replied.

Aalia pushed Marvin to the ground and hopped on him. They started to gag each other in the meantime.

This time, when Aalia quit gagging her old companion of twenty-four years and as yet straddling him, they gazed at each other for some time, their appearances a couple inches from each other, however their countenances were totally secured by sand and a sun defender, and grinned. Their eyes investigated each other and saw a large number of minutes together and both pondered who they would be without the other. It was a minute of disclosure and acknowledgment for them two.

The cloud moved over them and the wind ceased for a minute.

Aalia, who had considered the desert for a while before this test, turned her eyes quickly to the scene around them. Presently she saw this brutal environment as enchantment.

She took her eyes back to Marvin and some way or another he and she, loaded down with sand, were one. To somebody out yonder, they would converge with the desert. The inclination moved her nearer than at any other time to him. She needed to say something that communicated how she felt, however there were no words, only a sentiment holding.

Aalia began to move off him, when Marvin said,

"Where you going?"

Aalia turned back and generally as her face met his once more, he held her head tenderly and gave a long sandy kiss. It was their second kiss, yet this one was a great deal more paramount.

They completed the challenge, however did not pick mates from the list. In that decision the riddle had become visible.

We may ask, on the off chance that we had faith in such things, whether the desert had really baited them there to join its bizarre cluster of animals who have figured out how to get by in the singing warmth of the sun of connections.
