She fascinated him throughly. His heart stopped beating at every smile of hers.

He had seen many girls in his life but never been this spellbound by anyone of them before. He couldn't seem to concentrate where he was going and kept circling to have a lasting look at this beauty. He would have given anything for a simple fleeting glance from the girl in his direction.

No, that wouldn't suffice. He must pecker up his courage and talk to her. But when her smallest of smiles can stop his heart-beat, would he be able to talk to her sanely, and that too in front of four or five other girls surrounding her. At this thought his head lowered, slightly away from the gal, for the first time after he had seen her.

But soon his eyes were peeled again in direction of the charming lady. He heard someone calling but he couldn't care less, there were all sort of noise all around him. Without thinking his mind had settled that he must look at this gal forever and nothing that others do matter. But suddenly he felt someone place his hand on his shoulder and say "fine choice you have my friend", he turned around and looked at this stranger abusing him in his heart as if he literally had snatched something very precious from him. He couldn't think of anything to say and turned back to watching the girl again. But the stranger didn't take the hint and continued talking, "She is a beauty, unlike any other on this planet, isn't she." He still maintained his silence.

A minute passed or was it entirety, he seemed to lose track of time. His shoulder itched and upon looking up he found that the stranger was still with him and his hand was still on his shoulder. "What do you want?" he asked coldly. The stranger smiled. He said, "I want you to go and chat with that lady u have been watching for past few minutes. She is in her best mood and I think the time is right for you to make a move and tell her what u think about her, before it is too late." He considered this for a minute while he watched her again. This is exactly what he wanted but what would he say. The stranger as if reading his mind said,"Just take this hint before you go, she likes to drink whatever she is holding when she ponders positively but look down at her glass otherwise. Go now, time and tide wait for no-one my friend."

He stood still pondering on this. His head began to work as if something had finally connected to the gears in his brain and he took a tentative step forward. Stopped and looked back but the stranger was gone, was this a joke that stranger had played on him? how did he know so much about that girl? question burst into his forehead like fireworks. Should he go on or stop right here, he wondered.

Rest in next post... ;)
