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.

  1. Every line looks like a word of great romantic novel .

    How they meet each other first time and then second is Beautiful.

    Keeping the pendent and expressing love is mind blowing.

    1. Really ? Isn’t love enough to end a story. You have specially requested so, i’ll try it someday maybe in my next to next post. Romance is like 60 seconds infatuation which ends once we know other person hardly cares but will try and write 🙂

      3. That’s a big word you’re mentioning – Nothingness, it’s difficult to be in that state. Great, lately, i managed to understand why once you said to me that am all away from awards and such things when i tagged you in an award something. Thanks.

  2. Yeah you got it right. Agreed being nothingness state is really difficult one in true sense…

    But in materialstic world a very few understand those things.

    You are luckiest one with full.of wisdom. Yes I can see the spiritual growth within you.

    1. Nothingness, you won’t believe i tried this today while i was going somewhere and am always tensed of driving of other people and today i was absolutely calm and composed, watching what’s happening or will happen and at least for few hours i enjoyed it really.
      Am not full of wisdom, have to learn and practice more in that direction. Thank you.
      Now, we can talk more in depth about it or you can help me by giving good reference books in that 🙂

      1. Hahaha You are on right path Shalini. I can understand the bliss you are sipping now a days and turning your life towards fearlessness. You can refer any book on Lao tzu or Tao philosophy or Gautama Buddha.

        You are on path where there is no turn back.

        Great going.

      2. Thank you for recommendations, i’ll make sure to read them. For Gautama Buddha, he was great and i guess his life turned right ways when he experienced sense of loss, illness and old age.
        I sensed it already there’s no going back now as said,’ Mind once stretched cannot get to its original shape’ is true in every sense. Thank You but i fear i’ll be the odd one out from my surroundings with this :I

      3. Wise ? And i think am actually insane to be thinking about things am not supposed to think because these things can convince me why being sanyasi is a bliss and why practicing sanyas while being in grasth life is double bliss.
        Thank You, you’re generous to say that. Am just finding it difficult to let people around me to understand my point. That’s the biggest hurdle.

      4. I know. People will not understand you . You might have noticed earlier my every comment and post were pointing spirituality.

        Yes agreed being Grastha have its own taste of bliss.

        If you got time read swami vivekananda work. That will also help you understanding life in greater way…

        No issues , you have powerful medium to express yourself . Share what you have worth sharing.
