The trek was fun. Even tough five out of nine turned up, the whole trip got more enjoyable with the smaller group. It was already 8 pm. I phoned home as I boarded the train to Mumbai. The most I hate is travelling alone. Since it was dark outside, even watching the passing scenery outside was out of option. So my eyes wandered in the train, trying to pick up anything interesting. Trains & passengers can be very entertaining, my experience says.
I didn’t had to go far. The conversation next to me caught my interest. Two guys were talking in low voice.
“You know, yesterday I met her. She came to return my books. I wanted to say it to her right away, but I was nervous”
“You are dumbass, see, if you don’t tell her this week, don’t ever talk to me about this. I am sick of your hypothesis. Are you going to do it ?” he made a face as he said it.
“Hey, understand ya. You know how she is. Sometimes I feel that I say it, when I’ll tell her that I like her, she might punch me in my face”
“You are afraid of her. Ha!”
“I think I have only one chance. If I miss it she’s never going to turn her face to me” The train came to a stop, they peeped out of the window and hurried to get down. As they moved, a folded paper fell from the guy’s book. I picked it. Being an express train, most of the people were asleep, I unfolded it.
We don’t know each other much. But the truth is that I like you. I don’t know if you feel the same. If so then meet me tomorrow at the Rastek cliff. If you don’t turn up, I’ll get my answer.
I looked up, almost jumped. But they were gone. He’s not going to meet Sheetal. But what will happen next. Will she talk to him about the letter ever ? Will they come together ? I’ll never know…
P.S : The story is piece of fiction based on the prompt pic.
