I was cursing myself that why I decided to join this really boring conference. Sitting at the last row of the conference, I was listening to all the speakers that were talking about some weird topics and everything was going over my head.
Intermittently I was looking around to find something interesting, but failed in my mission.
Suddenly my eyes fell on a girl, sitting a row ahead of mine.
“Holy Shit!!! Is it her?? I asked myself.
“No, that girl has some different hair color”
“But seems to be her”
“And she was a bit fatty kind of”
“May be she lost some weight”
I bent a bit ahead and tried to listen to her.
“I’m confused, voice is also the same”
I was in the same dilemma, suddenly she looked behind. It was her. I was stunned for a second. She recognized me and said hello with a cute smile. My heart skipped a beat. I too replied her with a smile.
For the three years of my graduation, I didn’t have courage to talk to her. I wanted to propose her. She was the most beautiful and intelligent girl of our class, and me, a mediocre student. May be that’s why I didn’t have guts to express my feelings.
For the next half an hour nostalgia grabbed my thoughts. I thought of every second I had seen her. Her giggling, her smile, her accent and even her tapping her tongue below her tooth when caught doing something crazy, I noticed everything at college. I think I was in love! But how had I said so? That courage never pulped in me. I would die on her single glare, forget about talking to her.
The moment the conference got over, she signaled me to meet her outside.
“So… how are you? Long time haan?” She asked me.
“Yea… I’m fine? And you?”
“Me too… so… what's up these days?” She said.
“Post graduation… here in this university”.
Often when lonely, I used to think about her. I used to wish that if she meets me in near future, I’ll say this, I’ll say that, I’ll tell her my true feelings, I'll hug her! but today when she was in front of me, I got speechless.
“So… came alone?” she asked with a wink.
“Yea… I've yet to get someone like you” I answered.
Actually I didn’t want to say this but don’t know how my feelings got out. But she… she just deferred the topic. I think she didn’t know that I actually meant it.
We just talked for two minutes, her friend called her. “I’m just coming.” She answered her friend.
She was going. I wanted to stop her, to behold her more. I wanted to take her address, her number to keep in touch. But once again, my courage betrayed me. And she had gone. I kept looking at her till she got out of my sight.
To express my feelings for her, I had to meet her again in future. I wished that it happens. And once again I kept on waiting for her for indefinite time. I think I knew that was the end to this untold love story.
