My Lucky Charm


I rushed towards the elevator as I was already late for the meeting. Everything was screwed after missing her glance in the morning. It was my routine since childhood when on a result day I scored ninety percent in a paper I hardly wrote anything sensible after seeing her face in the morning. She lived in adjacent society so getting a glance of her without her knowledge was not a difficult task. Today also I waited for her about half an hour but she didn't come, she had left before me or would come late. Then I saw punctured car,metro was facing some problem and auto rickshaw charge double, nothing happened as planned.

As I closed the elevator door someone hurriedly opened it and came inside. I was shocked to see her in that lift. I always wanted to meet her. Although I looked at her secretly I never got the opportunity to have her so near to me.Neither I tried to say some words of admiration to her. At that moment when I gathered some courage to speak lift stopped. She was looking down in nervousness I could see worry on her face. Documents in her hand suggested that she was here for an interview. I didn't understand what to do at that time. I started blowing air with papers in my hand because fan in elevator was also not working. She looked upwards set her curls and smiled at that gesture of mine. I also smiled and for few minutes we just stared each other in that pin drop silence. My hand automatically moved towards her face when lift jerk shook us. I took back my hand.

After initial movement lift stopped again, she hugged me in anxiety, my heart started beating fast. I too hugged her tightly, lift started moving again when I hold her face in my hand. The door opened. "I have to get off here", she whispered in my ears. I looked around as if waked up from a sweet dream and released her suddenly from my hold. She smiled again and walked out. I saw her walking into an office without even looking back towards the lift where I was standing. My meeting after that was a successful one being able to touch my lucky charm this time. I still looked her silently when I needed some luck and she still walked passed me without any eye contact. That silent relationship is working very well. I always thinks that lucky is not the one who have any lucky charm but the one who is getting its luck constantly.

Indeed, few people really are all the luck you need and without them it's a disaster. Liked it.
