But, sometimes… just sometimes some expected moment comes in for a really short while and leave you well enough and striking memories which last for a lifetime. That one person you met just for once.
It’s quite simple how our lives work, isn’t it?
You meet someone, get yourself engage in conversation, feel attracted toward that person, make earth-shattering love and get married. Then, it’s kids, family life, work pressure, growing old together and bingo… you die! You know the same old drill. Life is quite strange and relationships are quite ordinary.
But, sometimes… just sometimes some expected moment comes in for a really short while and leave you well enough and striking memories which last for a lifetime. That one person you met just for once. The one who lingers in your memories, who hover your thoughts even after many, many years. We are talking about him. The stranger you spoke at a bar, an empty street, on a bus ride or maybe anywhere. We seek the truth, ladies. Don’t you all have that one person you met just once but can’t seem to forget anyhow?
The sudden jolt you felt when he touched you. That instant attraction, the unbelievable chemistry. Back on your mind, you can have his selected memories with you. His smile, his smell. The way he looked at you. Seductive yet stimulating. No words, just silently glancing (isn’t that scintillating?) Don’t deny the fact that you think about him quite often… The one who will stay as a stranger forever. This is a very outlandish feeling- you meet someone for a short while and have a deeper connection. Coffee, conversation or whatever happened at that moment will remain simply amazing. Well, what if that encounter wasn’t just for a few minutes/ hours? Would it still be as good? Or even better? What if…
On a sultry afternoon or on a windy morning something reminds you of that person and you stupidly smile. The rush, the excitement. That smile, that sensation. Maybe some other time, in some other life.
