She was on her way reading the Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein when she collided with him, all there on streets exactly during the sunset and that bright Sun in background about to leave for some rest after a restless day but it actually, made the two more calm. Books on both sides fell and both jumped for the same when their bookmarks got hooked to one another and that string got tightened up leaving them to untangle it aside.
‘Am so sorry, Wow.. Dan Brown fan. I’ve read his Da vinci code. Quite thought provoking and that exciting quest for the Holy Grail’, said SHE.
‘ Oh ! yeah much big fan of his writings. Wow.. Mary Shelley, i loved it and such an interesting narrative. Sorry too’. By the time they discussed few good reads which they fall for, the thread of the bookmarks get tangled by him. Both went their ways smiling, it’s awesome to discuss books with fellow bibliophiles but it was the first time both discussed it with a stranger thereby giving them a new experience.
SHE moved to her destination and HE too, just taking everything casually when they met once again and that too in CITY LIBRARY.
‘ HELLO’ both greeted as soon as they reached there at the same time.
‘So, you were heading towards this ?’ asked SHE.
‘I can ask you the same question. Oh ! Yes’
‘Great. Happy Reading then’. They both took their seats and got busy with their readings when she realized she lost her heart pendant which she might have lost during the collision. She stood up and walked straight to him before she could ask he put that heart pendant in front of her saying,’You can keep your heart if you wish to but its likely to be more safe with me’. She was baffled at this statement but realized she got her better half, oh no, the best one. She just let him keep her heart and they kissed inside the library making way for a better fantasy with no magic or exaggeration, just 2 hearts who felt a sort of clarity in their LOVE.
