He saw her at last on the rainy day of Friday morning. It was special. He hadn't believed his eyes until the frail girl was walking past him. He was numb for few seconds. He didn't feel anything other than the rain droplets falling on him.
As soon as he saw her frail figure walk inside the college, he ran towards her. She was carrying an umbrella. She tried to manage to walk as the wind blew her umbrella. He got inside the shade of umbrella and held the umbrella for her. She was startled and bit annoyed.
They got inside the college indoors. She wiped the wet drops on her hands. She didn't say anything to him and headed towards her next class. " What! You won't thank me?",he said casually. His voice echoed and she turned to see him. She glared at him.
"Hi! I am Sameer. It was pleasure meeting you.", he said while offering his hand for shake. She didn't care to introduce herself. She walked away after whispering her thanks to him. She jogged towards her class as she was late for class.
He was disheartened. He expected her to be warm. Unlike other girls, she didn't get charmed. Maybe the way he greeted himself was not right. Maybe it didn't ignite the spark between them. Maybe he wished too much. Maybe she was not that type of girl he hanged around.
He should give up. But something about her attracted him. He wanted to know her. He wanted to get closer with her. He didn't want to lose her.
