This one's a short story I wrote for the Ascension" Short Fiction Contest in Clarity of Night"
I could not participate in the contest sadly as the date of submitting the story expired.But hey I still wrote something :P. The idea of the contest was to see a pic and write a short story having the pic in mind. I came up with this :)
This was the pic
I was in the escalator when I saw her. I was going down and she was coming up. She looked really Familiar. Our Eyes finally met. She gave a smile. So I did know her after all. But who was she? School, College….Damn! I had a pretty bad memory. She kept on looking at me till I reached the ground floor. Gosh! Whoever she was, she was damn pretty.
As I was about to turn and go back home, almost cursing my bad memory, I suddenly saw her rush to take the escalator, the one which I had taken seconds ago. She definitely knows me I thought. A few paces and she would be near me and damn I don’t even have a good deo on :P As she came a meter close……. ....
Somebody shouted from behind in an extremely girly way…………..
Hiiiiiiiiii Purva….Such a looong time naaa!!!!
What the …….?
I had made a complete fool of myself.
