Have you ever met someone unexpectedly and felt for that person after a brief conversation or a short meet up? Or have you just looked at someone and felt like just having the person by your side for the rest of your life?
I just had this kind of experience which started around 8 months back and continue to this day. I happen to meet this crazy mad woman one day, by accident, when I poked a finger in her stomach by mistake and ran away saying sorry to save myself from her wrath.
Later we saw each other at a Movie Theatre. We both were there with our friends and sat separately. I received a text from her on Messenger after a while. We started speaking to each other about the movie which we both found extremely boring.
That was the start and we continue speaking to each other over texts. Meanwhile, I kept hearing a lot of negative about this girl as people said that she was a promiscuous kind of a girl. But they were the same people whom she used to hang out with. So, if they can speak something like that about someone who calls them a friend then I believe they were the ones who could not be trusted.
We decided to meet up one evening again on a movie date. We ended up watching two movies back to back together. We literally did not know what exactly was happening in those movies because we were so engrossed in our stupid talks. I did not find anything promiscuous about her but rather I found this mad woman to be totally insane. Someone with whom I would love to be with. Apart from that, she smelled really good.
It was around 2am when the movie ended, and we kept walking aimlessly on the streets talking to each other. We worked at the same place, so we were told a lot of things about each other. I explained her why I had such a wrong reputation on the floor and how people took advantage of that and spread stories about me. She told me about the tragedy of her life. How she lost her boyfriend in an accident a couple of years ago. She made sure not to give any reactions while speaking about the whole situation, but I could feel those silent tears of pain and loneliness in her eyes. I don’t think anyone in this world deserves to go through something like this.
Anyways, we then took a cab and searched for a restaurant to have some food. Finally, we found one and ate some extremely spicy Chinese food. We made fun of a couple sitting right in front of us and laughed all the while for no reason. Later we came back to another location and spent the rest of the night sitting on a bench and talking.
Even played a fun game where I tried to take a chance and kiss her, but she kept dodging me. I did not want to spoil the mood by getting intimate with her but whenever she dodged me, she shouted “Main Bach Gayi.” (Translation: I got saved). That was the cutest voice and the cutest expression I have seen in a long time. So, I continued our game just to hear that and for her expression. We didn’t realize when time passed, and it was morning. Before sitting in the cab to head to her home, we shared a warm hug and a peck (Yeah! On the Lips. In a public place. In India!) and she left.
It’s been eight months since that night and I still remember every moment I spent with her. We still talk and keep cherishing each and everything we did. I told my friends that “I really like this lady and want to know her and spend my life with her.”
“You fall in love with every other girl asshole!” was the obvious reply I got. That’s something even she might be thinking about me when I say I like her. But to be sure about how I feel for her, I took this long to let her know that I like her. I did not want to rush into things and then break up and victimize her with another heartbreak.
We meet people sometimes with whom we build a long-term connection and want them to be by our side for the rest of our lives. It is possible that they do not have the same mindset as we have about them. I never said I want her to forget her late boyfriend and accept me instantly. I just wanted to let her know that I want to fill the emptiness in her life. Now it’s all up to her, if she includes me in her future, great! If not, I just want her to be happy. What I can promise her is to be there whenever she needs me, keep that smile on her face and make sure she does not have to go through any sort of pain because of me.
