He walked into the office and it was unlike the other days. The corridor and the cubicles were decorated in bright colors and it created a happy environment distant from the days where they have no time to simply look at the fellow-mate. He never knew that there was a celebration going on and he slowly walked to the area where the celebration was taking place. Colors and ambiance were simply stunning but what caught his eye was a girl dressed in ethnic wear in a world where westernization has taken its turn. She was a sight to behold he looked at her in between the crowd and the way she slid her hair behind the ear made his heart skip a beat. Seeing him in-between the crowd his friends called him.

Hearing his name among the music and sound he turned towards his friends signaling to them that he will come there after some time he turned back his attention towards girl but to his dismay, she goes missing. He turned in every possible direction and searching with his eyes straining but she was nowhere to be found. Though he was not a person who believed in love, at first sight, it happened and made his heart race to see her just one more time. Ignoring his friends he swims and sweeps through the crowd to find her, to see if luck favored him. After all the pushing and pulling he reached the spot, she first stood, where he first saw but she wasn’t there. An instant of sadness questioned himself “what am I doing? ” he just stood against the pillar listening to the music thundering and the crowds screaming in response while he was lost in thought of a simple girl. Feeling lost he walked back to his floor to his place and sat before his laptop trying to find what that feeling was.

He leaned on his chair resting his head on his arms and closed his eyes lost in thoughts. The sound of the metal bangles disrupted his thoughts and he turned just in time to find that very same girl crossing his bay. He stood seeing his eyes transfixed on the girl who he saw among the crowd now walking with the group of girls chatting and giggling. His legs stuck to the ground, forgetting to breathe he stood there seeing her laugh he smiled. After a brief moment, he finally remembered to breathe again.

The next day he walked into the building and stood with the crowd waiting for the lift. The lift door opened and he entered with a bag on one shoulder. There she was standing with her friend and an instant glow appeared on his face. He stood there facing her. As the lift became less crowded he tried looking at her id card to read her name. Seeing him stare at her waist she mistakes and adjusts her dress. Their eyes meet for a brief moment and she stared at him while he turned away cursing himself. After a minute the door opened and she walked out with her friend though she stared he finally got to know her name. He calls out her “name” out loud for the first time in the empty lift.
His friends called him to have coffee and along with him, they went to the pantry together with making fun of each other. After waiting for his turn he filled his cup with hot coffee he sat next to his friend only to find she was there drinking coffee with her friends. An instant joy lighted his face and watching her sip his coffee delighted him. His coffee time had never been this interesting.
He wanted to talk to her by building up a little courage he went in search of her and as usual, he couldn’t find her. she was some kind of a mystery to him and that excited him. He stood there searching, seeing her friends standing a few yards in front of him his courage faded with every turn of his head to find her. There was a pat on his shoulders following with an “excuse me” he turned, his frustration transforming into a complete amazement. He moved so she could go. she crossed him and their eyes met again for an instance yet so powerful. His eyes followed suit as she went away with her friends. He stood there watching has his courage drained once again.
It was post lunch he came and sat in his place restless after watching her enter. Time ticked away and he made up his mind to talk to her today. Building courage he thought of relaxing a little he opened his Facebook account and a notification arrived. He clicked on the friend request tab and found her name. He stood up in his place trying to see her place but she was not there he turned to find someone leaning in the entrance of his bay. He was astonished to find her standing there and smiling at him for the first time he said
