Oh… Great

Friday, 19:24

Here, I am standing next to my friend and in front of a girl who this guy likes a lot.

Today, near this fast food corner he has met her after a long time, with a question.. “How are you? and what you doing here? 🙂 “. She replies with a smile on her face, “I’m awesome & just waiting for a friend. How about you?”. With a happiness in his body language, he said “I’m fine, as always! Just here with my friend to get something to eat. 🙂 How about your friend, is the person from your college or school? “. With a shy smile she says, “Actually, He is my school friend & I am meeting him after a long time.” For a second or two he hasn’t said anything, looks down and then again looking at her, says, “School friends are always specially, he must be your good friend.” With an extremely thoughtful smile as if she remembered someone, she speaks, “Yes, he is my best friend & I like him a lot. ❤ ” Suddenly her phone rang and after 5 seconds of conversation on phone she said, “time for me to go, will see you next time. Bye!! ” In a low voice he was only able to say, “Oh… Great, take care, Bye! 😐 ” She turned and started walking away.

As we started the long walk back, he slows down and turns back to see her getting lost in the crowd. In a very less of a time she was out of the picture of our eyes. I put my right hand on his shoulder and without a word being said he turned and started walking.

Throughout their talks, I was a person who was only listening to both of them. I knew about her as this guy has talked a lot about her in past few years. As we were walking back, we did not exchanged a word with each other. He was just moving slowly with some deep breaths and looking into the sky for a while. I know he was not okay.

One thing that I acknowledge was the last words he said that evening, “Oh..Great!”
This “Oh” sounded as if his heart has ripped into millions of pieces. He was not able to speak after that. It appeared as if his throat has choked and only thing he was able to do is, breathe. 😐

    1. Yes, it really does. 🙂
      Thank you for pausing.
      Will be great if I can have your blog link, unable to stream the one shown here. 🙂


      1. Thank you 🙂
        I really loved the post “The drink of the gods”. Just got a picture how in mess all mates used to carry their glass of coffee with minimal sugar and mix it for quarter of hour to get that exact color of the mix. 😀 😉
        You have a nice blog. 🙂 Will be reading more.

    1. Oho! Can feel it. But don’t regret, maybe that was bound to happen. It is always sad, when you were not able to offer the last goodbye! Still, a new Hello can do a magic.
      Keep smiling and be happy. Thanks.

    1. It was way sad when it happened. I still remember how the light was getting dim and the walk that we had after he bid adieu.
      Sad to make a teary feeling in your heart. Nonetheless, express yourself to your special one’s before someone else does. With smile, have a happy time. 😊
