The semester just started with yet another tedious lecture in class and I was already bored. While I was trying to pay attention amidst the notifications on my phone, there she comes with big gleamy eyes and a breezy smile on her face, like a breath of fresh air. I couldn’t take my eyes off her as she walked into the classroom adorned in a beautiful yellow dress. My heart skipped a beat and started pounding ever since. I kept staring at her throughout the lecture and wished it never ended. For the very first time, I was glad to be seated in a class and my day just got better.
The next few days were the most memorable of my life. Each day passed with a never ending hope for a glimpse of her smile. I dared not to approach her, but I secretly wished I had the courage. Then she comes one day seeking my help and my joy knew no bounds. I suddenly felt like the happiest soul in the universe. Whenever she approached me, my heart never failed to skip a beat. I knew what it felt to have butterflies in the stomach. I instantly felt dreamy, excited and anxious. My palms turned sweaty and cheeks all red. I wanted to say all the nice things in the world, but I could only stutter. All these strange, beautiful feelings that I never experienced, only made me happier. I never wanted to miss this feeling of delight when she was around.
During the days I couldn’t see her, I felt void, lost and helpless. I was restless, nervous and felt as though I was breathless. I wanted to do anything, just to get a glance of her. I waited in despair for the eternal day to end. There was pain and pleasure in longing. The moment of her sight after a day of missing her felt priceless. A sudden rush of enthusiasm, satisfaction and bliss infused me. Moments like these made my life and made me crave for more. People called me crazy as I insanely yearned for her presence. I couldn’t mind, as she indeed was my sunshine.
