A SMILING STRANGER (#AtoZchallenge)


[My theme is 'My College Diary', where I'll be posting fictions inspired from my life. This will be a serial story. So here my story starts...]

I wore my uniform and moved to my bus stop. I was experiencing mixed feelings; anxiety, inquisitive and agitate. That was my first day in college, in my engineering life. I stood at the stoppage along with others. I glance at my side to see a smiling face looking at me. That girl was a little healthy yet beautiful. I smiled back.

“Hi, I’m Muskan and you?” She asked in a friendly voice. “I’m Apekshya. You are from which branch?”  I inquired. “I’m from ECE and you?” I gave her a broad smile and said, “Me too.” After a few seconds we both shouted at same time ‘E section'. “It’s a coincidence. And wait! My roll no is 056.” I lifted my brows and wait for her answer. “Apekshya, you won’t believe mine is 256.” We both laughed and by that time bus had also arrived.

We talked about our schooling, common interests and why did we join engineering. We reached at college by the time of 10:20 am. We headed towards our class silently as we both aware of ragging.
Life has many surprises for you. It was coincidence or destiny that we met, but I consider the second one. I never know that a smiling stranger would become an important part of my life.
