One in a million would be an understatement for describing her. She left for her office assignment last week and she was supposed to come today but she had to extend her timeline. She will come after 3 days. I had a skype call with her half an hour ago, yet I really am missing her. I know it’s really silly, but it is what it is.
If you were here, I would be able to touch your skin, caress your hair, let it fall on my face. I love the smell of you. I love the cozy you and I love every aspect of you. You are that person with whom I fight so much but can’t stay without talking to.
If you were here, I would take you to watch a movie, not a love story though, you don’t like love stories. You are the only girl I know is the fan of The Avengers.
When she came for the Avengers: Age of Ultron with her friends, she almost didn’t notice me, she was busy talking about the trailer even at the ticket counter. I was amazed by the knowledge she had about the comic book storyline and I was scolded by the people behind me multiple times to keep moving in the queue.
It was our first touch when she tried to do Scarlet Witch impression the way Elizabeth Olsen did in the trailer with both hands on the sides and she did it and she slapped my left cheek with her right hand and I got the touch of the smoothest palms. The people around us found it really funny and everyone started laughing. She was so embarrassed when She saw me and the blow had thrown away my cap and she curved her lips that said “Oh God!” and she took the cap from the ground and gave me back. Then she got busy with her friends again talking about the funny slow-motion scenes we will get to see of Quicksilver just like the movie released almost a year before: Xmen- Days of Future Past.
She didn’t look back at me until we didn’t have the tickets and I couldn’t stop looking at her all the time. She looked roughly at me as she was going in the theater and I still remember her expressions when she did. I knew it might felt a little creepy to her, but how could I control the sapiosexual me who was feeling so attracted to her with all the words coming out of her mouth about the comics and superhero movies. YES, READER, JUDGE ME ALL YOU WANT.
What were the odds of mine and her seats of being side by side? The falling-for-her-me was so sure but the reality is cruel all the time and she wasn’t seen again even after 15 minutes of finishing the movie. At first, I was getting mad and then I was sad and then I felt a tap on my shoulder and all of my friends suddenly vanished. I looked back and she was there. she was wearing the big black glasses and she was saying something.
“…sorry about what happened at the counter.” It was all I could hear.
“It’s okay. You were just being the more beautiful version of Scarlet Witch.”
“… So how was the movie?” She asked.
“Umm… it was nice.”
“Well, I didn’t like it that much.” She said as she was adjusting her dupatta. I came to my senses and realize that if I won’t ask a proper question, she would leave. so I asked:
“Why? What was wrong?”
“Well, Ultron was shown so strong in the trailer and in the movie, it was so weak.” She removed her glasses and adjusted her hair and I saw the eyes that I will fall in love with all over again later. “There was nothing remarkable about the climax as well. Why does every Avengers movie have to end with these SUPERheroes fist fighting alien robots?”
“Yes.” Those mesmerizing eyes were making me agree with her and also, she had a point.
She said that it was nice to meet me and she started to leave and I called her out.
She doesn’t accept it to this day but I’m so sure she smiled before she looked back at me.
“If I were ever a superhero, guess what my name would be?” I wore glasses when she turned away from me so that she wouldn’t be able to see the embarrassment and awkwardness in my eyes, and also, to look kind of cool.
“umm…” she smiled before saying that she thought it would be Ironman or Batman.
“I would be Yourman,” I said making a serious face. All these reading was serving me perfectly today.
“Oh. That’s so bad, man.” She said with a serious expression.
Holy shit! I ruined it. She looked so disappointed in me. I was cursing all the romance novels I used to read under my breath and she started laughing.
I smiled and apologized to all the books and even with glasses, I thought we made an eye contact for a moment.
“So that worked?” I asked her.
“Wasn’t it supposed to be?” she asked me, she was laughing.
I ‘yay’ed in my mind and she said that her name was Rishita.
We shook hands and exchanged numbers. We decided to meet the next evening for dinner. She started to leave and looked back and smiled and shook her head and disappeared with her friends. My friends emerge suddenly maybe from thin air and we all went to home.
I had a “Hi” message in my phone when I checked it again.
