What do you do when you have this intense need to connect to someone, any one.. just for a few hours? I usually tend to go and sit in an open air cafe with and stare at random people. Usually that works but today I wanted something more. What exactly I wanted I couldn’t understand, only this insistent need — Company.
So, I open Whats app on my mobile and ping, ” hey how are you? ”
” Not so good. I am roaming around ** alone. ”
” Roaming is good. You can spend time observing people”
” Thats what am doing. Whats up with you”
” Alone in a cafe and in want of company. I am observing people too”
” So, describe to me. Who are you looking at ?”
” There is this girl. Very impatient. very pretty. Looks like shes waiting for someone who has not come yet”
” May be someone stood her up. A careless boy friend or a selfish ‘best friend’? ”
” May be.”
” You should go talk to her.”
” Yeah ? What should I say ? ”
” Tell her , ‘ Looks like you need company. I need it too. Why don’t we wallow in self pity together? ”
” You should write a story about it”
” May be I will”
And so I did.
