He reached his college gate. It was quite a long walk from there to his class room. The same thought was running in his mind. That he could see his friend atleast today. She was from a different department and he had hardly seen her for the past one month. With these thoughts running in his mind he started walking towards his class. The road to his class was filled with trees on both sides. A gentle breeze was blowing inspite of the scorching sun. His eyes were doing a linear search in an attempt to find her in some part of the road. If he sees her then it will be a great feeling for him for the rest of the day. Else it is just another day at the college. Nothing to lose though.
As the search was going on, at about 20 meters in front of him he saw a girl with a pony tail. A question popped in his mind ‘why can’t it be her??’. A smile evoked in his face. He started to walk fast to reach her. He was approaching the girl all the time walking at a brisk pace (with a gentle jog sometimes). At about 10 meters from her he recognized the blue salwar she was wearing. It was the dress which she was wearing the 1st day he got introduced to her. More joy for him . It was a great chance for him to see her and have a chat with her. With these happy thoughts running through his mind he started walking with more vigor towards his destination(the girl :P). He immediately took his mobile and messaged her “hi..turn back!!”.
He even started planning what to speak to her. ‘hey hi, how are u?? ‘, ‘what a surprise to see you!!.’.. and many such starters. Finally he decided to go with his instincts rather than pre-planned dialogues.
Now he was just a yard from the girl. His lips were ready to say a ‘hi’. His mind was set to speak to her. Now he was in line with her. He turned to see her face and tell a ‘hi’. But she just stared at him with a strange look and continued to walk. It was not her. With a heavy heart he had to accept the fact ‘Just another day at the college’. He was tired of walking very fast. He stopped there to drink some water from his bottle. While he was having water, he was consoling himself thinking ‘It’s ok..atleast I saw a new girl today ’
