“Do you know Pins I liked you a lot that day when you first hugged me,” I looked up puzzled from whatever I was reading, she had my full attention then. Though we have been around each other and had common friends, we were never acquainted! But once we started to talk much later there were so many things to discuss and argue out!🤗 That said, I didn’t have the faintest idea what she was talking about at this flash eureka moment! I left it at that because she didn’t continue, but after a while .. “Don’t you remember that day I had returned from the government hospital next to Arthur Jail after admitting my roommate for chicken pox! It was a hectic day!” This conversation was getting weirder by the moment, I thought she was turning delusional because of over work and stress! She gave one of her brilliant smiles at my almost puzzled look, “I know you wouldn’t but I do.” I had started doodling by now, all the interest in the document I was trying to make sense of was long gone, waiting (patiently) for her to reveal what is.. “I bumped into you and P in the corridor, I had directly come to the department from the hospital, all flushed… I was running late for my duty, P was really irritated at my explanation, remember. She even stepped back when I mentioned chicken pox.” Was she making this up, I wondered.. “But, you, woman, you didn’t know me from anywhere before that…. you came forth, held me and said, go to your room, get some sleep. I’ll stand in for you today. It was not even your course!”
“I did what😮😮😮.. Really😄😄😄? I don’t even remember ya..” “yes, you did, one of my fondest memories of you..😍”
One of those moments I went wow at myself, the fact that I didn’t remember it made it extra special. But this made me quite wary because of the impact an unconscious/small gesture could leave on someone, good and bad! All of us will have some such or a fond memory…. Share if you are comfortable ..
