I never did say "Hi"

Over the course of your lifetime you meet a whole lotta people, some of them stick with you through thick and thin and while with others you just walk a few blocks on the street called Life and then they take a different turn and you never get to see them again, there is another category of people who you have never quite walked with but they keep bumping into you on every other turn and you just wonder why haven't you said a "Hi" to this person all this while.

Once upon a time there was a girl I knew, who shared my school bus stop with me. Brown hair, brown eyes. I never quite said "Hi" to her, I wish I had but we never got to that level where I could just pop around on the bus stop and say "Hi".(Yea I know I was pretty bad). Anyho time rolled along and I decided that I had a crush on her and this made the aforementioned "Hi" even more difficult to say( I know I was one of those tragedy kings meets Dram Queen kinda person, still am a lil bit).

She was my " keeping bumping into at most inane of places". I would see her in a restaurant half way across the city. I mean what are the odds of someone choosing the same restaurant out hundreds of restaurants on the same day that you decided to go there. Then I met her at a party which I decided to attend at the last minute and viola there she is enjoying the '"Golgappas" that you too like, keep in mind I was just tagging along with someone who had been invited to this party and didn't want to show up all alone.

Change is never easy. You fight to hold on. You fight to let go. I moved away to college and never did see her again for a few years. I have since then moved back to the city and a few days back I saw her at the same Bus Stop that we once shared, life had come full circle and I realized I still haven't said "Hi" to her, this was a different time but the same me so I just moved on , may be next time we bump into each other I would give her the link to this place.

PS: If you have been reading the blog regularly I might have referred to her as Bus Stop Girl or the elusive one before.

Try saying hi the next time. Who knows, she might remember you too. Of course, it will be the end of a long, quaint story.

God's a funny creature.

Or the beginning of an equally long quaint story, I am just saying.
