Acquainted Love - Part 1

Hi Everyone :) After long long time am back with story telling. Hope you like it :D


Himanshu was waiting in the station for the train. He was already running late. He looked around and saw the crowd everywhere. He swore to himself why it has to be so full today only compared to the other days. Finally the train came and he got into the already crowded train.

As he got into the train, he saw a girl standing at the middle of the coach. First look at her and he thought, she looked very pretty. Next moment, it dawned to him that she looked very familiar but he simply couldn't remember when and where he had met her.

Through the jostle and pushes, he found himself in the middle of the coach. He heard a pat behind his back and turned back. It was the same girl he saw when he had entered the train.

The moment she saw him, she smiled widely and said,"Himanshu! Hi, how are you. Heard that you were working in Mumbai. "

Himanshu simply couldn't remember who she was. Not wanting to be embarrassed, he simply smiled at her and nodded his head.

The Girl continued speaking, not minding his silence. "You are still with same company? It's so long since we met na"

Himanshu tried to keep a straight face and remember at least the girl's name.

The girl suddenly turned and saw out of the window and then told,"My stop has come. Good to see you even if it's this crowded place.See you sometime. bye." and struggled her way out of the coach as the train stopped in the station.

He meekly said bye, which only he could have heard. He was still wondering who the girl was. He felt relieved that the girl's station came soon and he avoided being embarrassed in front of the girl.

She got down the station. As she started walking, she wondered, if he had recognized her. She wasn't sure remembering the look in his face when she said hi; despite the confused look he looked cute and handsome. She laughed at herself and decided, she will find out if they meet and picked up her phone as she went out of the station.

He reached the office just in time for the meeting. Throughout the meeting he was constantly distracted by who the girl was. As soon as the meeting got over, he went to his place to write a blog about the incident in the hope that he might find out.

She logged into facebook once she was in her desk and wondered if he would be there. She searched his name and found his profile. His profile had his photo and minimal information. She wondered if she should add him as friend. She checked the mutual friend's list and saw only one name - Raj. Raj was the common friend for both. She had met Himanshu on Raj's birthday treat.

Still not remembering where they had met, he clicked on the publish button hoping he should find out before he met her next time, if that time comes. He checked his Facebook and saw a few friends' request. Without giving much attention to the names, he accepted the friend's request and logged off.

She was surprised that he has immediately accepted the request. He must have remembered her then. She smiled to herself. She started going through his profile when she saw his blog link. She opened the link and started reading his latest post.

He went to bed wondering if she would find out and read the blog post.

To Be Continued...


This story is a work of fiction inspired by one of the friend's blog post! :)

What The!!!!

Sound - You have totally taken me by surprise!! :-O

You surely have created enough of curiosity among the readers. So obviously, I would be interested in knowing where the story goes (Author sheepishly wishes that Sound writes that I get the girl and get married and have babies and live happily ever after :-P )

//Himanshu simply couldn't remember who she was. // -- Infrastructural issue. Cannot help it! :-/ I wonder if my memory loss is worthy of a post though :-?

Bring it on Comrade!!
