30 minutes gone
waited in anxiety
60 minutes gone
started to worry
90 minutes gone
waited and waited
120 minutes gone
total stranger appeared
'he wants to talk', my sister said
tongue completely tied
a long silence.......
eyes shied away
thank you mirror mirror on the wall
saw the strangers reflection
gathered the courage
gained the confidence
uttered a few words
voice trembled
I mumbled
'caught in the traffic', he said
I smiled
I started to laugh
he too
'wait a minute', he said
'I am staying for lunch', he said
I was confused
I didn't know
what was in his mind
'I like her', he said to his mum
no invitation
no sign
no insistence
no dream
it just strike
'love at first sight', he said
first experience, new experience
'I felt the same', i said
13 years ago.......
arranged marriage
that's how it started
sweet memories forever.
