It was almost midnight, I was all alone at my place as I use to live in an apartment far away from my home town for the purpose of job in this metro city.
Although, I was fond of this loneliness but that night was feeling quite alone and restless. It was difficult for me to sleep so, I jumped up from the bed and moved towards the kitchen to prepare a cup of coffee. My flat was on the top floor of the building which provides me the benefits to sit at the terrace, watch the stars and enjoy fresh breeze at night.
Therefore, I moved towards the terrace with a cup of coffee in my hand. On reaching there, I found a little holabaloo all around as it was summer’s time. I sat quietly at chair and started to enjoy my coffee.
Generally, when you live alone far away from your home and family, sometimes it creates a deep sense of loneliness. Despite of engaging myself in reading, writing and watching my favorite show, it use to feel alone sometimes. So most of the time , I use to sit on the the terrace, enjoy coffee and take deep breaths which helps me much to recollect peace of my mind.
But that night, something different happened. While taking coffee sips and leaning on the railing, I saw a guy playing guitar at the terrace of the next apartment. It looked like an another victim of loneliness is trying to find his peace of mind in silence of the night. The guy was softly playing guitar’s chord and was lost in his own world like completely unaware of his surroundings. I continuously gazed at him as if I found something common in between us. I was so lost in his music, totally unaware of the fact that the guy has also noticed me watching at him continuously. And then, what I see he keeps his guitar a side and coming closer towards the railing of his apartment facing towards me. He stops there and look at me very keenly.
This time our eyes met for the first time. There was something in his eyes which was so attractive that it was pulling me towards him. But only after a minute or two, I turned back and had my eyes off him pretending like I don’t know about his existence. But deep inside my heart I was willing to look at him again and again. His presence was attractive to an extent that I couldn’t resist myself to look at him once more.
So, I turns back towards him and what I see, the guy has gone from there! Once again, I was left alone at that restless night.
But wait! what was happening to me? I was feeling butterflies in my stomach after seeing this stranger. May be I have fallen for him or may be I’ve fallen in love!
I never believed in love at first sight but now I do, yes! I do it with whole of my heart…..
