He looked at the invite and was not sure whether he would go or not. He wondered if she would be there too. It was five years since graduation and still Janak remembered her.
Seems like yesterday when he saw her in the third year of college in one of the classes he attended. She was seated one bench ahead and asking her neighbor who was roll no. 21 and it did came as a surprise to him when he heard her saying his roll no. He never got to ask why as he would often catch a glimpse of her like once in a blue moon day.
He never realized when he had fallen for her. He would often attend classes for her but she was never around. He did found out her name but never got the opportunity to talk to her. Time passed and the day of graduation was getting near.
Then one day as Janak collected his hall ticket from the administrative office and turned around, he saw her. She was standing at the door, with the rays of sun falling on her making her look just perfect. His heart beat got faster and hands went cold. Not knowing what to do, he gave her a big smile and she too smiled back. He just stood there as the distance between them narrowed down.
That was the last time he had seen her. As he came out of the memory lane, he had made up his mind. He decided to go for the college reunion in the hope of meeting her again and this time taking a step forward.
