Calling From Behind

“Wouldn't it be nice if we...” The all time popular song from beach boys was playing while I got off the train on the same boring Monday. Actually, this song could be my favourite one because I really like its melody. Unfortunately, its lyrics are kind of making me sick. After I broke up with my girlfriend, I don't really feel like loving anyone again. Being an honest man doesn't always turn out well. The world is always grey and my life is always blue… I got out from the train station and crossed the road at the same crowded junction to get to my office which is located at the opposite side of the road. While I was busy crossing the road, I heard an incredibly sweet voice calling me from the back. "Honny!" I wasn't sure that someone was really calling me at first. I did not turn my face back because I was in the middle of a dangerous street. However, I looked back in the direction of the original voice when I got to the opposite side. I thought I saw an angel at that moment. The beautiful girl who called me was sitting in a car. The scene was like in a music video and my surroundings blurred as I only had eyes for her then. She was a very beautiful girl. We didn't have a chance to talk because the traffic light turned green and her car had to move. I didn't recognize the girl was but it seems that she knows me very well. I decided to forget about it. There was no use thinking about it because I thought I will not see her again in my life time anyway. My short romantic incident became a funny topic among my colleagues while we were waiting for the elevators to go down for lunch. It was very crowded as usual. I was talking to my colleagues about football while the elevator doors opened. Being a gentleman, I held on to the ‘door open’ button and let the females go first. The elevator was full of people and it was likely that I have to wait for another one. The door was closing as I released the button. Strangely, I felt one pair of eyes staring hard at me from inside the elevator. I turned to the eyes and all of sudden, I saw the lady in the morning staring at me. Oh god. We meet again. It was too late to rush into the elevator unless I push an old lady out of the lift and replace her. The lady used her lips to ask me silently whether I worked here or not. I was able to read her lips and nodded. The elevator doors closed. I smiled… It was almost a laugh as I couldn’t contain my joy. It seemed that a new chapter of my love story had just begun. I was thinking intensively about her in the afternoon. I still didn't recognize who she was but again, she seemed to know me very well. I knew that she's working in the same building as me but it didn't help that the building was gigantic.. I decided to leave everything to cupid and start clearing up the pile of work in front of me. I checked my email. Everything seemed to be normal until I saw one email. The subject looked like another spam email. “Subject: Hi Hon, so glad to see you again.” I was about to delete it but luckily, I glanced at the sender’s name. It was a strange but very familiar name, Farry Jaan recognized the name only after a few seconds. I tried to put together the jigsaw pieces. "Oh My god!" I was crying out loud. The mystery was solved. There were not many people in the world having such a strange name. Farrys my really close high school friend. We walked back home together after school almost everyday. We had such a good old time together before graduation and never met up again for almost ten years! I didn’t want to call it my first love because we were very young at that time but I remembered that we had the best time together. It was one of the happiest periods in my life. The period I always wanted to retrieve back. “Alright, let's prove it.” I thought as I opened the email. There was nothing except one link. It seemed that I had no choice but to follow the link. The link led me to some kind of quiz or questionnaire. The three questions quiz was a bit silly but it really made me laugh. 1. Do you know who I am? (If the answer is B, please continue to the second question.) A. Yes, the annoying girl who called you in the morning. B. Very familiar... C. Do I have to? 2. Think and answer. Who I am? (If the answer is B, please continue to the third question.) A. Your soul mate in the last life. B. Your old time pal in school. C. The second cousin of your mother-in-law who is the sister of your aunt's nephew. 3. So what are you going do, handsome? A. Call Miss Farry Back right now. B. Go home and take half a day off. C. Contact your supervisor for sexual harassment. Now the mystery is solved. This is one of the biggest coincidences in my life. My very close old friend got a job in the same company as mine. I answered those questions, checked her contact number from the employee repository list and started dialling… to begin the new chapter of my love.....
