This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 35; the thirty-fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "...and the world was silent again"
The face glowed like a shimmering ray of hope. Her expressions were so pure. It was as if the the earth had come to a stop.
Then their eyes met and the tale began . Looks exchanged, expressions changed and the correspondence started. She pointed in a strict manner towards the rings he formed, Jeh's heart melted and he put away the cigar. She smiled and immediately began to search her pocket . Jeh was completely confused as to what she was searching. Out came a dairy milk. The lady next to her persuaded but she was not the one who would give up . Finally she won. Opening up with immense care she cherished every bit of it. Then teasingly she ate it. The whole site was so exuberant that Jeh was left amazed. She continued to tease Jeh till the last bit. He sipped his wine with an unusual smile on his face.
With a sense of comfort drawing in, even Jeh began to respond. With great effort and little success he tried to converse in some sort of sign lingo. Forming ducks and dogs, birds and bears , God knows what not. But this did not amuse her and like a typical girl she nodded and gave everything a pass. Alas! he scratched his head in despair and this was sufficient to make her laugh.
Just when a bond had almost been formed, the door opened and she rushed back to the rear seat of the car. Suddenly everything came to life and there was a buzz around. It was time to move apart. The cute, young and charming girl, moved her head back and with her small hand made a sign , a goodbye kiss for Jeh. For the mesmerized onlooker a moment of bliss had passed and the world was silent again.
Just the music played on
