For anyone reading this first,please read "the Aquafina Guy" the one next to this post,so you can figure out :)
He walked into the cafeteria with his team member,discussing about the concall with the British client. As the other guy thre numbers at him,He glanced a quick look around the cafeteria floor. She was there.
Sitting on the right hand side corner most table she was in an orange shirt,sleeveless,with her wavy hair flickering over her face. He could not see anything beyond the table so he dint know what was she wearing today..while his colleague continued with the year to date data,his eyes locked on hers. And from the corner of his eyes he saw her bag and he tried his best to contain his smile..it was bright red with huge hearts and some very colourful prints.he had never seen so many colours on one person at a time.but he could not look away from those eyes.
damn,she had beautiful eyes
It was 4 in the morning and as always by 4,her kajal was always smudged and he could always make out the freshly applied lipgloss. She probably knew this and ensured he got a full glare before he walked up the podium to take his coffee from the machine. As he bent down to take the coffee cup he felt her gaze on him..he enjoyed it.
But he also enjoyed when she would walk across the cafeteria floor to get her coffee. She would walk right in front of him,look at him for a few seconds and then get her coffee. Her smile was as infectious and intoxicating as her eyes..she was like a mystery to him,constantly challenging him with those looks and the timid confrontations. He looked as her fingers played with the coffee cup,frequently running her fingers on her collar bone. She had amazing guts and always shocked him,when she would come and stand next to him,while he got his bottle of Aquafina. She would sometimes brush against his jacket as she took her food across the counter. He especially remembered an instance where he could smell the Davidoff on her..at that instant he had such a strong urge to look into her face and grab her...he had paid for the bottle of water and walked back.
it had been going on for a couple of months now,the looks,the gestures,the coincided timings for dinner and coffee breaks. Off late he had been getting some blank calls on his extension and in his mind knew(wanted) it was her. It would take someone lots of guts to call at his extention,but this girl dint lack any. Infact the first time he realsied he was being oogled at ,he was surprised it was a new comer.The girl was from the US Mortgage team ,just joined after her MBA. She was in Chetan's team.He had sourced out this information from the HR head,whom he had coaxed into having coffee,when she was around at the cafeteria. She had a strange name,he had not heard it before..anushua chatterjee..and she was a bong..her eyes were a give away anyway.
Th next day he searched her up on facebook and found two results to "anushua chatterjee" .the display picture,with the lavender shirt and big silver dial watch was hers..23 Female Mumbai Single..the last detail especially made him raise an eyebrow. He wondered at her status ,at the same time was smiling..interesting, this could proceed.
Over the past two weeks he had found out his extention number, email id but the company internet did not have her cellphone number listed yet.there was only one way to get that.
That morning at 6 as he walked down the stairs he saw her sitting on the bench,with her friends. She looked tired,her kajal was smudged but her smile...it had an innocense in it,he had'nt seen in a while. As he walked down,he saw her in her black courdroys and the orange shirt..hmmm orange..juicy..he smiled as he heard his thought in his mind . but his motives were different..
She walked across to the parking lot and went to speak to Shantanu,the HR guy, who was more than happy to speak to her. She finished speaking to him and turned to walk back,and at that instant looked at him again.
Getting that look,he knew he wanted to speak to her more than ever,so he walked over to Shantanu ,knowing this was the only way and planned on going to the nearby restraunt for early morning breakfast.Shantanu gladly agreed and they drove down to the restaurant.
While Shantanu drove,he kept wondering how to get anushua's number? and then suddenly he knew the way. He looked at Shantanu's cellphone on the dashboard of the car..picked it up and turned around to see the make of it..Nokia.."hey nice phone Shantanu"
As Shantanu turned and parked inside the hotel,he browsed through the phonebook..there was only one Anushua stored in it. he memorised it and while walking into the hotel he punched it on his cell phone.
While Shanatnu spoke about the new team in the Mortgage department, he pulled out his cellphone and gave a missed call to her number..Nelly Furtado sang "promiscuous girl" as he cut the call on the second ring..
And he waited..
