Lost in Silence

She looked at herself in the mirror for the last time before leaving home. She hoped that taking efforts in dressing up would yield result at least today. It had been a week since she last saw him. She missed standing next to him in the elevator. She missed the smell of his cologne. She missed his voice. She remembered how he had stopped the elevator once just so she could get in. She smiled. Maybe it was love.

He tightened the knot of his tie & smiled at the mirror. It was a week since he saw her pretty face. He missed her. Maybe it was love. He wondered if she missed him too. He would get to know today. He would see if her face lits up on seeing him.

She was waiting for the elevator to reach the lobby. The elevator door reflected the image of the one standing behind. A huge grin spread across her face, her heart beats grew a little faster. Confused at her own reaction, she hung her neck & tried to wipe the grin off her face.

They boarded the elevator. He was disappointed. She didn’t even notice him. Heart broken, he alighted on his floor, resolving to never think about her again.

  1. It feels great that the seed that I planted hasn’t gone barren. I can’t thank you enough for the same. Its kind of a sublime happiness that fills my heart. Thank you R.

    Its a heart warming story. It is cute but at the end of it one feels bad for the boy. Oh the woeful mind and the stubborn heart. I feel like telling the boy “Please do not try and contemplate the actions of the girl. She’s complicated not just for you but for herself too.”


    Poor lovelorn soul.

      Can’t thank you enough. You have removed the hurdle I had in my mind about writing fiction.

      I was just thinking what if two people are attracted to each other but nothing happens between them because neither has the courage to confess? We misinterpret silence a lot. That inspired me to write this story. Hope people will take a lesson from this. Valentine’s Day is near anyway 😉

    This was Nice, Pure fiction thats filled with more than a few emotions and well penned.

    But the cherry on top was the comment from you saying, “Valentines day is near anyway” 😛

    I hope people take the cue and act accordingly now 😉

Your thoughts please? :)
