Shadowed by answers

Worry lines etched his face. She was curious  to know why he look so disturbed. He'd glance her way occasionally, but gone was the cheeky smile she had come to love. He paced the length of the corridor waiting for his family. She sneaked glances his way, making sure he didn't catch her again. His family joined him and he reluctantly trailed behind them, disappearing into the corner.

She straightened her back and peered where the dust from their departure was just beginning to settle. He suddenly appeared again nervous, worried, unsettled over something. The smile that had formed on seeing him again, froze as their eyes met. Her's one of a million questions, his shadowed by answers that reeked unease. One last glance and he turned the corner again.

Seconds past and she waited for the familiar smile, minutes past and then it dawned on her.

Oh they'd left. Alas how she wished he'd caught her and exchanged more than just glances. The rogue nor the  damsel knew if the ancient dance of eyes will ever resume.

Ps : continuation of rogue

As she gets ready to depart, she notices a cute little boy walking with intent in his eyes. He smiled as he approached. She smiled, wondering if she had seen him before. As her mind raced, the boy stopped in front of her. He handed her a piece of paper. "That uncle gave", he said before running of to join a few other boys in one of their numerous games. She opened the piece of paper slowly. Her heart beat faster and faster as the each leave of the paper was lifted. It read, "Meet me at the fountaine". The paper laid on the grown abandoned. the dust from her feet still lingering just above the ground even after she had gone. Away to the fountain.

I have too much time on my hand. Sorryla if the story lari ready :P

Yeah she running so early didn't fit well. It's just that I was reminded of a ManiRatnam movie then, so being caught in the moment all :P

visithra said...

BawangMerah said...

Sure, why not. Anything's achieavable if you set your mind to it. Who knows, he might even like the pictures you take and set up some shots that way :P
