Work, Life and a Break - Part3

For Previous Parts
      His shrill didn't go unheard. Mystery Girl turned to check who this Mystery Girl was.  As she turned sun rays fell on the diamond stud on her nose and lit her whole face. She was as beautiful as she was the last time. Her eyes caught Pranay and she was completely baffled. 

Pranay walked towards her briskly. Blocking the entry to the Café, both of them stood there looking at each other uttering no words at all. Suddenly, MG raised her eyebrows and flashed her hand in front of Pranay’s face, bringing him back to the present time. 

Pranay came out of his contemplation and he blasted.

"Now, dare you say that you do not know me! I know you know me and you can’t deny that! You are the same girl. You look exactly like her. So you are definately her!"

"If you are talking about the girl whom you offered lift a few months back. Then yes I am the same girl and I am not denying it either” replied MG with a grin on her face.

"So…..? "

"So what?"

"I mean how come you are here, in Delhi?"

"I live here."

"Ahh!  precisely. I was mad looking for you in the whole of Mumbai and you say you live here."

"You were looking for me??"  

"Yes. I will tell all of that. But before that can we move out of the café. Everyone is staring at me as if I have commited some heinous crime."

"Sure." She replied giggling.

Pranay wasn’t able to control his excitement. When he had almost lost all hopes of finding her, out of nowhere she appeared again. Ebullient he asked her name.


"Myrah, never heard of such a name! What does it mean?"

"Myrah is a greek name. It means Princess"

"Your name compliments you in the best possible way.  "

"Her cheeks turned red with his flattering comment."

"By the way I do not need to share my name. You already know my name. That day you had called me by my name. How come you know my name?"

"Did I? Not possible"

"Ohh common. That’s a blatant lie. I clearly remember you biding me good bye and addressing me by my name. "

"Actually there is a little secret behind me knowing you and I prefer sharing it a little later."

"Ohh.  Is it? "


And then a moment of silence crawled.

Covering the awkwardness, Pranay asked, ” Sooo can I ask you out for a coffee”

“Coffee? I just had one and I guess even you , Toh?”

“ Yaar if not a coffee, an ice cream, a shake, a burger anything will do. The whole point is I want to know you more.”

She smiled.

He took it as a yes.

He was not that familiar with Delhi so he let Myrah decide where to go.

She took him to a MC Donald's close by.

As they munched the fries and relished the burgers, they started sharing everything about their lives with  each other. To an outsider it wouldn’t have looked they were strangers.
Pranay was surprised to know she was almost 5 years younger to him. Her maturity and serenity had touched his heart. 

It didn't quite bother Pranay to ask her how she knew him. He knew it would be some silly thing else he would have surely remembered her. So he didn’t push her in letting the secret out.  

They chatted for hours and it was almost the time for the shop to close down. Pranay dropped Myrah home but not before exchanging numbers. He had an early morning flight back to Mumbai the very next day. He left Delhi with a hope to see her again.

When he reached office the next day, he was in a different world. His manager congratulated him and asked him to handle the project single handedly. He was going to lead a team of 15 resources.

He couldn’t control his excitement and happiness. What more could he ask for?

But he had underestimated his luck-O-meter.  He was going to manage a team of 15 resources but from Delhi. The client was in Delhi and the project would be operated from Delhi. To set up the project, it would be best to shift base to Delhi.

Delhi? Close to Myrah. Kya baat hai! 

He messaged her instantly. Coming to Delhi and this time not just for a day; this time for a long long stay.

Myrah just couldn't stop blushing.
