I have absolutely no idea why I am sad today … I will not say that I am sad actually but a little low on smiles and happiness. I am trying to figure out why I am feeling like this. Gosh, I so don’t like such days. I am writing this just to vent out I guess. I am not even going to share it on any social network. They say venting out works for your system. Well, I guess I am doing that but I am unable to find a reason behind such a crappy mood .
I should totally go back to my happy place.. Oh yes, I should go back and read my blog post about my most happiest moment . Wow, that immediately worked. I have yet to read it and I am already smiling .
So my Lovelies, moral of this tiny blog post, when feeling low go back to your most happiest place, moment, day ever and I can guarantee you will end up with a smile.
Alright, I am out of here.
Flowers are nature’s best gift to humans. When we fail to express our emotions all we need is a flower. A single stem Rose can uplift a sad face in just a second, to show your loyalty and innocence Daisy is your best option. I was always fascinated by the beauty of the flowers, their vibrant colors are simple mesmerizing, their fragrances are so intoxicating and they are the best gift anyone can give you. I remember when I was a kid, I wanted to have my own flower boutique. In fact if given a chance today, I will still love to own a flower shop, probably at the corner of a busy but family friendly street. Oh! While writing this, there is a very beautiful and colorful flower shop image in my mind (I wish somehow I could let you all see that).

Another sketch in my “Favorite sketch series” . Do check out its Digital painting on Adobe colors.
It was drizzling since morning but by the time she was done with her lunch it started to rain heavily. She went outside to feel the air and light breeze. The moment she stepped out on the rain-soaked patio, she knew she will have a tough day. Monsoon always had that effect on her. There was a time when she simply used to get mesmerized by the pleasant weather, pitter patter of rain drops and the sweet heart breaking fragrance of the damp soil. Now she feels sad, she misses the love of her life and regrets that why dint she tell him about her feelings and why dint she ask his name?
This was the same hotel, same city where she met him 2 years back. They met at the Hotel disc. She was trying to order a Dirty Martini but bartender was way too busy to even give her a glance and the blaring music made it more arduous. Out of nowhere from crowd, he jumped in and literally ordered for her and gave the bar tender 20 bucks for a 10 dollar drink. She thanked him and they started chatting, she actually liked him. Somehow she was not feeling any inhibitions from him and the result was she was sharing almost every tiny little detail of her life, her thoughts, her family and friends .
It was 3 in night when they had to leave the place. Both of them were in no mood to go their respective rooms. They were drunk, after the Martini sessions and tequila shots. Booze was doing all the thinking & talking for them. Before they knew they were sneaking out on the stairway and in no time they were at the rooftop of the hotel. Rooftop had a garden and a beautifully lit gazebo which was reserved for special occasions. It was raining and it began to gain momentum and smacked them with all its might, piercing them through and through, from head to toe (they preferred rain over brightly lit gazebo)…………
He saw her by the bar trying to place an order. That beautiful gorgeous girl, 2 years ago, who caught her attention not because of the beauty she endured but the charisma that engulfed her. Dressed in plain black cowl neck dress with her hairs tied up in a neat ponytail and the only jewelry she was wearing was a red ruby ring in her right hand. Confidently standing in her high red and bronze heels and clutching her tiny bag in one hand she was trying to get a drink. She was oblivious to his gaze, but he was very much aware of her presence and the fragrance of her perfume was simply intoxicating.
Before he knew he was buying her the drink. She turned towards him and thanked him. He knew he was drawn to her. She was intelligent and smart. He was getting more and more attracted to her. A feeling of inexplicable longing came over him as a thrill ran down his spine. Talking to her was so easy, he was conveying whatever was in his heart that too without any hesitations. They had their drinks and then couple of shots. He dint even realize the time till he heard the DJ announcing that the bar is closed and everyone needs to leave. He dint want the night to end. He was drunk, she was drunk but he was intoxicated by her beauty.
They ended up at the rooftop garden of the Hotel. He dint know how the door to the garden got unlocked, may be his luck was on his side. It was a rainy night. Though the stars were concealed by the pitch darkness, but he could easily see the twinkle in her eyes. Both of them were suddenly soundless, only thing they could hear was: whatever their hearts were saying. Both of them knew the night will be one of the most unforgettable nights of their lives and the moments will be cherished throughout their existence.
Since that morning 2 years back when they parted their ways he regretted not conveying his feelings to her. He was never able to forget her as she became a part of his heart, the girl with whom he shared the most beautiful moments of his life, the girl about whom he knew everything except for her name and contact. He tried to forget her but more he was trying to forget, more she was hovering over his thoughts and heart.
Finally he gave in to his feelings and decided to visit the same hotel on the same date when they met for the first and last time. It was his last night and tomorrow he will be leaving. He was unable to bear her absence from his life. To drown his sorrows he went down to the bar and ordered a drink. Just when he was about to pay a hand came from behind and offered 20 dollars for that 10 dollar drink.
There was no need to turn back and look who was buying him a drink, this was the fragrance he can never forget and the ruby ring which caught his attention.
He knew this is the beginning of a very beautiful life.
