Time 3.10am, Thrissur railway station. It was raining lightly. I took my bag and searched for a bench. All were occupied by one or another. Last I found one, far from the crowd, near the end of the station. I'll get bus to home only after 5am. So I bought a tea and headed towards my lonely bench. I love the taste of the tea before brushing! Rainy railroads and huge machines[I mean train ;)]. I was enjoying the moment still killing the time.

I was thinking about Vikas, my roommate. Will he buy the Guitar today? It was then she came. A girl who seemed of my same age. She asked me whether I know in which platform Trichi-Ekm train arrives. Well I didn't know. I said NO. There was enough space in my bench to sit one or two more. But she didn't. She was typing something in her mob. I looked her bags. One, Two, Three, Well It looked like she took the whole home in those bags. She was in blue jeans and black shirt. Hair clipped at neck's height. A beautiful black wrist watch. Well she is ok!.

5minuts later. She came and sat besides me. Showed least interest for a talk. Tea over. I bought a newspaper. CPM, Cricket, Sania well that too finished. I turned to her. She was looking at me. As if caught red-handed. I asked her, "when is your train".

Then it started. Her name is Ardra. She is doing Ph.D in Medical Micro Biology in Coimbatore. She came from Bangalore [By the same one I came]. Because that was a super fast and don't have stop in her station, she has to pick a local one from Trissur. She went Bangalore regarding her project. She talked about days in Blore, PG rent, friends, shopping, Job scarcity, lack of fund for her project[ She need 4lakhs for project!] etc. Her sound was bit rough. She had big eyes and small pimples. Talk went on and thus time.

She didn't ask much about me. Whenever she did, cargo trains interrupted our talk!. I was very happy because usually I used to sit there alone 2hours. Her train announced. I checked the time. Its 4:30am. Good timing. I can go to Bus stand now. She was struggling with her bags, so I took one and offered my help! Huhh.. Come on guys, don't mistake me. She was planning to get in ladies compartment. Wont it be nice going there? But the train disappointed me :( . No good chicks. I gave her bags and she whispered a thank you as nice as she can say. Well. Who likes good-byes. I walked back. Hopping I can get another one next time. Pray for me :)
