It was quite humid there in the evening….
And he was tired with the extended travel. But he could only get some rest if he would reach the desired destination.
He was quite tall by appearance with some good looks to get a stare.. Even in the noon with some stubble around his cheeks , wearing a white shirt, black goggle and a tight blue colored denim, with a travel bag on his shoulder
He was waiting for some public Transport but what he could see is the limited availability of it over there.
Ah.. He don’t know anyone there and he can’t call anyone from the destination to pick up.
But he was waiting with a hope and faith on Almighty for more than an hour. And it actually proved worthy .
He saw an auto , with a beautiful lady in red saree in it, with some beautiful eyes ,sparkling like stars.. And decorated with some heavy gold ornaments near her neck ..
He sat next to her with a mere distance for decency. But they had their eye contacts which involved some spicy chemistry …
And then they went towards their respective destination in the common route,
In the next stoppage he has to arrange the sitting with 4 more ladies but no one was actually as beautiful as the first one.
And he was happily placed in between the group of ladies and a girl.
The road was quite bad in condition, as everyone was falling one over another and the guy was not happy with it as few were falling over him and he in result fell over the lady in red saree as she was in the corner. And she was looking with some angry eyes to feel bad.
But she also fell over him, which made her understand the scenario, it was very dark in the road with no lights at all ,and the auto was going at good speed with some jerks and brakes ,
Then he asked the driver about the time of reach to the destination and got reply of two more hour. He was like “Two more hours! ”
Then the lady in red saree whispered are you from outside?
He said yes , and I don’t know about the place , it is very dark and I don’t have a charged phone I have been traveling from yesterday and still not reached there.
She said I will guide you and then she spoke about her self and asked about him precisely,
and he was liking it, and she was also enjoying his company, she shared her travel reason, kids,husband’s job etc and by then he could understand that she is quite a nice woman.
Another brake came in between and he fell over her with touch over her forehand and she smiled and said the road is nice are you not liking it?
He said yes the best route of my life so far!
And again she whispered something fishy and he couldn’t listen and he asked her what I can’t hear you by inching next to her mouth !! as it was quite noisy there,
she smiled and said nothing in a whispered manner.
She asked him about the purpose of visit and he replied that ” for an interview “
she said you can’t work here as you are from outside you may not like the discomfort of here, he said I can if they pay good she smiled again,
She said you can come to my village as you said you don’t know the location and it is very dark and the area is more than dangerous for unknown person,
he said is it scary? And How I could come over there and where I would stay?
She said don’t worry , don’t think much you may join us I will share the problem to my husband he would not say no to your staying. I will manage it.
He was like thank you so much.
By then it was evident to everyone in the auto that something is nice in the conversation as they were listening about what they talk. And enjoying such tuning of unknowns.
Now, she thought to talk with the old lady next to him as she was quite known to her she asked about where she went and her purpose of travel.
And in between this she pressed his little finger of right leg in the darkness..with her left leg’s palm..
and he did the same in return , for some minutes.
she took her leg away.
And he put his head down to check whether he pressed the same leg.
She smiled on her own and purposely rubbed her shoulder with him , he liked her instincts and he didn’t removed his shoulder and touched her hand,
she also liked it and touched his hand and holded it tightly.
Her eyes were bigger now, and filled with notions ,she was happily enjoying his style of love scoops.. and She may have kissed him but she could not as there were many in the auto.
They both looked other side of each other with holding hands, for while.
And after sometime they started looking at each other with some extended eye contacts, and smiles over the faces, with some awkward touchdowns.
They spoke about their families and he came to know that her husband is very older than her and she is not living a happy life and so was seeking happiness in him.
And in between this his stoppage came and he has to go now with a lot of pain…
he smiled with helplessness…
she smiled with the folded lips and they said nothing to each other
Auto driver asked him some change she gave it on his behalf.. he said how could I Return it ? she said no need of doing it.
It was around 8.
Then the auto started and she moved forward and he winked his eyes with plenty of smile and sadness…
he turned again and again but he could not see anything as it was very dark there in the night…
So he walked towards the destination in that dark night.
***Not The End***
