Few experiences of a lifetime
That was just an ordinary day like most of the other days. Actually, it'd be better if I say night, because by that time, the day had passed. As usual, I was sitting alone on the terrace of my house, unable to enjoy the cool, silent breeze, still looking at the sky, expressionless, making right-angled-triangles with the stars, while listening to some of Iron Maiden's masterpieces. I was so bored at that time, because in the previous few days, nothing had gone well, and add to that I had been doing nearly nothing.My mind was completely blank, I had nothing to think about & even then I didn't want to escape from the present reality. In fact, there was a reason behind this nothingness and I wanted to face it all - the things I had lost, the uncountable result less efforts that I had made, the past that always kept on chasing me, its sharp edges cutting my thoughts every time I looked behind to see if I'm at a safe distance or not.And although I knew that whatever I had gone through, wasn't a big deal, but to me, it meant everything.Just then I saw a shooting star. I immediately closed my eyes and murmured all the wishes that people like me who are born without the luck line on their palm, have ready all the time in case they get a chance like this.Although by this time, I had lost all faith in the almighty, and I'm ready to apologise if I'm wrong. But I think I'm not. Because the two dials on the twelve-pointed circle are the biggest factors that can do anything..anything! Now, I'm waiting to see whether shooting stars really fulfill our wishes or not. Because I haven't yet got the video game that i demanded about twelve years ago to a similar shooting star!
