He was continuously looking here and there as in search of a particular face. The coffee shop was in a secluded place giving a serene view of the city. Not many knew of this coffee shop. It had rained just yesterday and hence, the dust had settled down giving a more clear view of everything around. Everything was feeling fresh.
And suddenly, he saw the face that he was looking for.
She was dressed in an Indian attire with minimal makeup. Hairs tied up in a ponytail while eyes laced up with kohl. Her flawless skin needed no makeup. His eyes lighted up brightly. He stood up to wish her as she came in front of him but he fumbled while introducing himself and she smiled shyly. He knew he was a such a loser as he ought not to fumble up their first meet. Moreover, her beauty just shook his confidence. He already knew about her liking for coffee and so, had already ordered two.
The coffee came and they shifted their gaze to the steam coming our from their cups of coffee. For some minutes, nobody uttered a word. He kept looking at her through the corner of his eyes while she kept her gaze down. She was blushing. Both didn’t knew what to talk about but the ice had to be broken.
Just then, he unknowingly put his finger into the coffee and the hotness of the coffee made him give an instant reaction.
“Ouch” he exclaimed and stuffed his finger into his mouth
She looked up at him in astonishment.
“What happened? Where was your concentration?” she asked with a delicate smile
“On you.” he replied and this made her blush.
The ice had been broken and it gave way for the start of a blissful journey…
