Blogging Challenge: Day 2

Nine Things About Me

1. I love watching sitcoms. Especially Friends. If you understand what I mean when I say “It’s a moo point”, I like you.

2. I have a very short temper. When I’m angry, turn around, and run away in the opposite direction as fast as you can. If I control my anger with you, you are special for me.

3. I hate the color mustard. Can’t stand it. Not now. Not ever.

4. I love talking to myself. Even if somebody is talking to me, I’m usually holding a conversation in my head with myself. This is because I’m the only one who can understand my craziness.

5. Food is the one thing always on my mind . When I’m hungry, I think about food. After I’ve eaten, I start thinking about the next meal I’m going to have. From 5 star hotels to road side eateries with questionable hygiene standards, I can eat from anywhere as long as it interests my taste buds.

6. Photography is as important for me as breathing.

7. For somebody who can talk all day, I have trouble expressing my feeling. It takes immense effort from my side to tell somebody how I feel. Making a joke and changing the subject is my one talent which comes in handy in such situations.

8. My only aim in life is to be happy. I don’t care what profession I follow or what job I have. I just want to be happy. And for me happiness is not money, fame or riches.  For me it’s being at peace with myself.

9.  For a major part of my life I wanted to become a truck driver. Don’t ask me why. I guess it could be because I love to travel. And at that age I was fascinated with driving a truck around the country.

 

:P

10 Things you want to say to 10 different people right now

1. I’m sorry if I hurt you. Someday you will understand why I had to do what I did.

2. Even if we don’t talk everyday or don’t meet for months, I would still be there for you when you need       me.

3. I know you care about me. But I need to think and decide about what to do about my life without                anybody’s interference.

4. The choices I made for my life were my decisions. I stand by them even if they were not exactly right          for me.

5. Life is too short to be worried about what happened in the past and what is going to happen in the             future. Let go of everything and enjoy this moment.

6. My criticism is for your benefit. Try and look beyond my harsh words.

7.  If your mind and your heart are in conflict then listen to your heart. You will never regret it.

8. Just tell me the secret to that glowing skin! I so envy you. (Just Kidding :P )

9. I’m so proud of you! Your patience and persistence has finally paid off.

10. I love you. So much. Forever and always.

Blogging Challenge

Lately I’ve been going through a major writer’s block. It’s like I have all these stories and ideas in my mind but nothing works when I try to pen them down. I tried taking a break and doing other random stuff to get inspiration but I just got a dead end.

So I’ve decided to do something different so as to get the creative juices flowing in my mind again. I stumbled upon this blogging challenge on Google and I thought of giving it a try. So starting Monday, I’ll be following this challenge for the next 10 days.

Let’s see how far I go before getting bored of this because frankly, I have the attention span of a fruit fly.   *Fingers Crossed*

Cheers!

For years he had been running away from emotions. From anything that could remotely make him fall in love. Love was not what he wanted. He had far too much darkness inside him. And nobody had ever dared to reach out for that. A darkness that was lost in simplicity, and yet was too complicated to be brought out in the open.

He had controlled every thought and every emotion in him.

But all this week, for the first time in years, he felt like he was losing control. And looking at her, standing in front of him, he understood why….

There was mischief in those eyes. And a flash of recognition. She didn’t look like all the other girls in this club who yearned attention. No. She was far too different from them. She had that look about her that was hard to explain. She appeared to be nonchalant but her drumming fingernails showed her restlessness.

“I’m sorry, but have we met before?”, she asked.

He had been mesmerized with her eyes and with this question he saw the fire in them. Fire, that pulled him like a moth towards it. Fiery and blazing.

“No”, He replied smiling. “But it seems like you recognize me.”

Have We Met Before?

She had made peace with her demons long ago. There was a time when she fought ferociously with them. But now, they were kept hidden somewhere deep inside her heart. For some utterly illogical reason, she believed that her demons were the only ones who knew who she really was and understood her.

They were the friends she could never find in real life. But this time, even her demons had given up on her.

She could not understand why that face did not leave her mind. She had done everything she could to divert her mind. And yet somehow that face always came back. How was it possible that a glance could leave such a lasting impression on her?

She dived into her work to get away from thinking about him. All week she kept herself busy, and today, she deserved some time for herself. She dressed up and headed to her favorite club in the city with her gal pals. She always found solace in that place. The loud music dimmed every thought that came in her mind. Quite places were nice, but sometimes she needed a crowd to set things straight in her mind.

They had ordered drinks at the bar when she turned around to see what her heart had been longing for the entire week.

He was here, right next to her.

Her eyes met that piercing gaze which had haunted her for days. He looked at her as if she was unreal. She could see a spark of recognition in those eyes. Was it possible that he remembered her? Could he remember somebody he saw for a couple of seconds? Or was he somebody who she could not place?

Maybe they had met before. No….she would have remembered those eyes. How could she forget that magnetic gaze?

But he looked like he recognized her….

Before she could stop herself, she asked, “I’m sorry, but have we met before?”

Have We Met before?

The Gaze

The Gaze…(Part 2)

He wasn’t particularly fond of clubbing, but once in a while he went out with his old friends.They would meet and catch up over a couple of drinks.

His three best friends were the only people who understood him. They had come a long way together. From college where they chipped in money for tea, to this day when they were sitting in the classiest club of the city.

He really needed this break today. All week his mind had been playing tricks with him. He really needed to get those eye’s out of this mind. It was almost like he was losing control over his feelings. He couldn’t lose control. No. Not again. He had to divert himself from thinking about her.

He didn’t even know who she was. He had seen her just for a couple of minutes. And yet she had been in his thoughts all week. He was determined to let go of this infatuation.

But fate had other plans for him.

They had been sitting at the bar when he heard somebody come up next to him and place an order for drinks. A smooth voice. Deep, with a certain authority in it.  He wouldn’t have turned around if he hadn’t heard that drumming of nails. There was impatience in that drumming. He seemed to recognize this impatience.

He turned around and saw what he had been trying to run away from…

She was standing right next to him. Dark ebony hair framed her face that glowed from within. In this crowd she stood out. She was not like the many girls in this club. There was something mysteriously enchanting about her. She was like the ocean. Pretty enough on the surface, but you had to dive down to it’s depth’s to see what treasures it held.

He would have kept silently staring at her if she hadn’t turned her head his way.

Her eye’s met his and for a moment he saw a spark of recognition in them. Eye’s that he could stare into for infinity. He could see a smile playing on her lips, and before he could say anything, he heard her ask, “I’m sorry, but have we met before?”
