And When We Met – A short story!

on October 17, 2013

Just when he is sitting in a library thinking how boring his life has become, a girl with big hazel eyes and long hair walks in the library. He looks at her and then looks at her again. She was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen in his life and he felt the love-at-first-sight feeling for the first time. She sits next to him and he somehow finds the courage to start the conversation.

“Um, Hi. I am Adam.” He says with a broad smile on his face.

“Okay.” She replies.

“Hmm. So she is playing hard to get.” He thinks.

“So, what’s your name?” he tries again.

“Not interested.” She replies curtly.

“Oh. It must be a very boring name then.” Saying so, he turns away.

“Excuse me. Who do you think you are?”

“Who do you think I am?”

“A moron nerd who’s sitting in the library in this rainy weather”

“Oh really? I wonder how this makes you any different from me.”

And then there’s silence. Both of them are thinking if they have offended the other.

And she speaks,” I’m sorry. It’s just been a rough day today. And I know I shouldn’t take it out on you. Sorry.”

“Here, have some dairy milk.” He says, passing the chocolate to her.

She laughs and says,” Badly needed it. Thanks. And you know what; the librarian is staring at us right now. Before she throws any of us out, I think I should leave.”

And she gets up and starts walking away. He is still sitting there, wanting her to turn back and she does.

“By the way, I am Summer.”

And she leaves the library wondering if he would come out too. And there he is wondering if he should go out and enjoy the weather with the girl he has fallen for, Summer…
