“Hi
Ishi.You are looking awesome” his remarks made me blush, I could feel my
cheeks hot
and turning to crimson & an unknown happiness gripped me. I felt quite at
ease with
Ishmeet; though I took time to mingle, but this time it was just the opposite
may be I
was destined to meet him in such manner.



“You
are looking dashing too, Ishmeet!” I exclaimed.

“I
am always dashing!” he remarked sarcastically.

“Hmm…”
I could comment but thought better not to leaving him to enjoy the triumph.

A
lot was exchanged about our background, family & of our life till we met,
over a cup of
coffee. One fact that emerged was remarkable age difference between us. I was
near to
five years elder to him, a remarkable difference…in our society acceptable
choice of relationship
is boy been elder to girl. It was a matter of flutter for me though Ishmeet was
cool. The guys are indifferent from us, God knows what they think but they
don’t go wary
like us, it was my presumption.

This
was our first meeting, a planned one, so I didn’t had any desire to spoil the
sport so keeping
this worry aside, we shared lot of tit-bits & enjoying the company…it
sent butterflies in my stomach. It was a moment to be cherished.

At
7pm, we parted our ways, it was a nice long meeting & the heart wanted more
and more…”Dil
Mange More…”

The
meet was a refreshing one and in my life, one chapter of fondness & crush
had been added
instantly & unknowingly, I could feel the changes within. Life seemed to be
more colorful
than before & onlookers could well take note of it.

 At
night, we hung up on the Google Talk…it was a start off of an unknown
relationship certain that something
was brewing between us, found his association comforting, longed for his calls
or Sms…

“Hi
Ishi…what’s up” Ishmeet message flashed in hangout.

“Nothing
as such, reached safely…” I wrote

“Are
u sure Nothing…………. 😉 ”

“Yup…Y..
🙂

“Aren’t
u thinking of me..;) “ message popped up from Ishmeet.

I
took time to respond this time just to see his reaction.

“Just
Kidding..” popped up again

“Me
too..”  I typed

After
leg pulling & kidding, I told him that I was keen to join his institute for
learning Salsa.

“Hey,
I am keen to learn Salsa, are you going to teach me?” I typed

“Why
not…certainly, you are most welcome but directly you can’t learn Salsa, you
have to learn the basics too.” He wrote.

“I
don’t know what I have to learn but you are only going to teach me and nobody
else.” I typed bluntly; unlike my nature who thinks twice before asking for
something but with Ishmeet, I was informal, no inhibitions.

“Yes
Madame, I’m at your service. Let me know when you are intending to join.” Message
flashed .

I
called on his no.& discussed in detail. Finally, it was concluded that he
would be giving special classes after my office hours & I would be paying
his fees as per his institute regulations. We were so engrossed in ourselves
that we didn’t realize the time. Suddenly, I checked the time, it was 11 pm. We
bid goodbye & hung up the line.

There
were several missed calls of my Mom. I contacted Mom and told her about my new
venture to join Salsa classes.

After
changing into informal, chasing sweet thoughts of my new found friend whom I
found close to my heart, I glided into the world of sweet dreams.
