This is the story of me and the mystery girl.
So I was boarding my train from Surat to Dehradun.
It was an AC coach .The coach wasn’t crowded .
I had the lower berth.
Suddenly a girl enters in the coach . Turns out she has the seat right in front of me.
She wore a Black Tshirt and a white pant.
She was looking surreal. Like she had been crafted by god. So beautiful. So cute .
8 min. were left in the departure of the train.
I observed that the girl started watching something on her phone. She plugged in her earphones, but the audio was still audible to the other person. I heard some familiar voices and peeped at her phone. Turns out she was watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I asked her ,a bit hesitantly”Watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S,Huh?”
“Yes”, she replied,She had a soft tone.
Suddenly a lady in her mid 40s enters ,She was trying to push her luggage and i helped her.
As a formality that lady tried to initiate a conversation . “Thank you beta ,What do you do ? ”
” I am a transponster aunty, my job is IT procurements manager with the specialization Statistical analysis and data reconfiguration “(A F.R.I.E.N.D.S reference) I replied and wink to that girl while saying that with a quirky smile.
The lady obviously was confused but didn’t bother to ask anything and said in a very Indian tone ” Good Good” and then went to sleep ,She had the side upper berth.
” So a Chandler fan ,I assume?” she asked.
“Who Isn’t?”,I replied.
Then we did a bit of chit chat ,Where she was from,What was she doing etc etc.
The coach was relatively empty and it was 11:30 in the Night ,The lights were turned off by that lady as soon as the train started.
Suddenly that girl calls me next to her and offers me one of the earbuds of her earphone. Now we are watching Friends with a single piece of earphone. We laughed together , Hi-Fi’d each other at some scenes and also felt emotional for each Ross-Rachel scene. The episodes we were watching had the “We were on a break” thing going on.
It was a 25 hr journey . Time flew by 3 hours we saw it without any interruption. Suddenly a bright white light hits my face. It was 6 in the morning. I turn my face to the right side and found the girl sleeping on my shoulder. She woke up because of my movement,
- Akward silence *
A minute later she says
“Good Morning, Transponster” .
We still had a few hours left in our journey,We got freshen up ,We ate,Did a bit of talking ,We slept again in our respective berths .
The last 15 mins of our journey.
She says “It was such a great journey,You are a really good companion”
“Hope my future wife thinks the same “,I replied
“I think you would make a good boyfriend” She said.
I was a bit confused,”Is she hitting on me ? , Is she giving her honest opinion?”
We stood near the door as we were close to the station.
The train is coming to a halt.
” Hey,Add me on Facebook or Instagram !”
“Ofcourse,I would love to talk to you”I said.
Suddenly i had a realization and asked her “Hey ,Oh Shit,I Didn’t ask you your name and neither did you ask me mine ”
Both of us were in awe and laughing stupidly because we spent 25hrs together and didn’t know each other’s name.
While laughing she says,
“Anyways I’m -”
Suddenly i felt a huge thunder like shock,Like someone had slapped me.
I see my mother next to me , Looking at me with an angry face ,I wonder how did she come here?
Suddenly i see my room ,I wonder,How did my room come to the Train!!!!!?
And i hear some announcements at the station like
“You Lazy ass ,Its 12 :00 PM wake up you fool!”
It was straight out of a romantic book experience.
