Its almost quarter passed 9 in the morning when i reached station. I searched for my friend but i didn't see him there, we planned to meet in the station by 9am. I buzzed him to his mobile but no response, he might be driving.
Huff... i felt happy... i reached before him!
I didn't find any seating in the lobby though its one of the major station in the city. I moved towards the less crowded corner of the lobby, stuffing back the book i was reading,in to the bag. I reached the water bottle in my bag and sipping the water, i glanced the lobby to find some interesting scene to entertain myself till my friend reach.
Bad luck, all i saw was the crowd rushing to take tickets, broken windows, dusted cream colored wall with notice papers all around, spitted corners...
i checked my mobile and i see no sms...
boring boring... I felt i can pass time talking to Yogi, i buzzed her, no response and then i remember, she never get up before 10am on holidays and its only 9.20am.
When i was cursing myself coming early before my friend and i could have finished my breakfast before i leave my home.
I relaxed myself with the support of wall.
I felt a bright light passing on my left, something urged me to see the side...
my head turned to the left without my command rushing i should not miss the scene.
OMG, it is not a light or something else that i sensed but a beautiful girl. I saw a small gang surrounding her, may be her family or friends but i said to myself,
Why should i mind?...
I last in her... she is beautiful.
how will one explain a beautiful girl?
okay... i can tell she looks like a Barbie or an Angel( though i haven't seen any Angel before). no no! she is beautiful like Joshna, my niece and a well known example for a beauty.
oops! i thought Joshna is the one and only beauty until now. But there is another girl on earth.
she looks active though not naughty.
She didn't notice me, but i did saw her continuously and i don't remember if i closed my eye lids... now, I believed in Love at first sight...
I prayed! Oh God, prove me your presence once again. Make her to talk to me.
How silly i am, I can talk to her myself if am really interested in her. Y should i blame God. Let Him take care of someone else life by the time.
And something attracted me towards her. she was in my favorite color, her hair was dark, long unlike other girls of her age and Christ her smile is cho cute.
i cleaned my spex to clear my vision to confirm if she get dimples when smiling...
I totally lost in her! She looked cute, beautiful, innocent, divine, pure and what else will i tell to explain her.
I prayed again. God, make her to talk to me ... please... I believe U r here somewhere in the crowd.
I heard Leo coffee Ads music... oops! my mobile tone... call from my friend.
He reached me finally after confirming the place am waiting.
He started explaing the problems he faced until he reached here. But who cared... i lost myself in her...
I don't know if he sensed what am doing, he raised his voice and am back to him.
he said, Lets go, we are late already!
What? we? it was he who came late!!! but i don't feel like telling this... of course, i lost in her already...
and then to my surprise, i felt i was landed in dreamland...
my friend took me to the girl and the gang :)
Did God heard me?!
well, he started introducing me to everyone...
again!!! who care... introduce the girl first u dumbo,
Shakthi... Her name is Shakthi... to my surprise, thats my fav name for long time. Now i looked into her eyes when he introduced her.
I gave a naughty smile, but she never minded. When everyone getting along with my friend, i tried my luck with Shakthi. I smiled at her again, she never minded but i didn't give up.
i showed some funny expressions, she might have felt irritating and she turned her face to the other side. I felt bad of myself and i felt stupid too. I cursed myself and i turned to my friend.
Again, he said "we are late!" but this time to the gang...
We excused from them and moved towards the exit of the station.
I turned back to see Shakthi, if she wanted to say bye!
"Stupid! remember she didn't even smiled at you and how can you except her to say bye", someone inside me sounded hard...
But to my surprise, she signaled me bye!
I pinched myself to confirm that am not dreaming...and i showed my hand in return with a smile :)
and now i cursed my friend for reaching early! or i might have got more time to see her...
Days rolled on as usual...
and when i crossed that station daily, i prayed God to show her again forgetting that i saw her on a holiday. I bought a small teddy bear and couple of chocos for her, hoping she will accept them when i meet her again.
And it happened, after 4 plus weeks...
I saw her again at the same station, this time alone with her mom.
This time on an another holiday and i was alone... so i rushed myself to them...
i greeted them, her mom greeted me back and Shakthi, the cute girl gave me a cute smile :)
she was more beautiful than before. She looked more naughty.
When i gave her a funny smile she moved behind her mom. I really don't have any idea to talk to them, but i felt i want to talk to the girl.
The conversation between me and her mom started in general... But my eyes starred at the girl, who gave her cute smile at times. I hope she too liked me. Thank to God again, He proved He is near me. When she smiled at me this time, i noticed something...
oops! her mom diverted me with her question and i really don't remember the question.
Finally i asked her mom to know how often they come here to the station., thinking i could catch Shakthi back when they come here again,
But ... She said they are here in the city for a summer vacation and they will be leaving to their town in a week time, since Shakthi's 2nd standard class is starting in couple of weeks.
I felt sad, very sad... I told myself that i will miss her... i greeted Shakthi to study well.
I gave her the Teddy bear and chocos, this time she came to me with bright smile and i noticed it again...
oops! again, her mom diverted asking her to thank me.
She thanked me with a kiss. I said "i love u" with a kiss on her forehead (she really have a dark long hair like my niece)...
Am late already. I greeted her mom and Shakthi.
This time when i turned towards them after 4 steps, she said bye with joy and love, She sounds loud...
Broken voice inside me said bye... hoping to meet her again, soon, somehow!
P.S. I started with something and ended up here. I never planned for this but i planned to finish it in 15 lines, i really couldn't. Don't take it as story, since it is not formatted as story. It is just a bla bla bla... i didn't even check the proof, i just want this to be a first feel outcome, i don't want second thoughts.
I will update a small concept behind this post soon in this space.
