We are on April 15th and I am here with my 13th post! It's on an emotion called mysterious. I know its not an exact emotion but is definitely worthy of being in this list as i wanted to write on it...
so here you go... a short one this time on M for mysterious.
Who was she?
bright morning last fall, he saw her.
carried huge grocery bags… probably was back from the super market, he thought.
entered the corner building.
had never seen her before there, she must have moved in recently, he told
himself… other than that there was no way he would not noticed her earlier. Rob
knew every girl - hot or not – in his
locality. He generally avoided the nots and looked for the hots… and she was
made a mental note that he will be looking out for this new girl from now on.
went by but Rob didn’t see her. He never saw her leaving the building or
entering it, she was not there at the park or at the super market. He thought
she must be working in night shifts so he kept an eye at the building in the
nights. But then again he never saw her.
morning when Rob was out on his bike his heart skipped a beat when he saw her
finally. He thought he will not waste any more time and just go and talk to
her. He zoomed in by her side and greeted her with his effervescent smile. He
knew he looked macho this way and girls went crazy in high school on his moves.
he got the shocker when the girl gave him a blank look and kept walking as if
she didn’t notice anything… at all. He called out to her and asked her name but
there was no response.
was hot beautiful but Rob didn’t understand why she didn’t react… at all… good
was beautiful, yet the look on face was blank, she was tall petite and well
dressed, but her eyes looked to be missing something or was it some one? He was
perplexed as to who this mysterious girl was? Why did he see her so little? Why
she didn’t come out of her house in the last 2 weeks? What did she do? Why she
always looked lost? Rob told himself next time he met her he will not leave
without the answers.
