“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
It was a gloomy day. The weather was as uncertain as to my mood but then there she was there, the chaos in my heart, and she smiled bright enough to light up the cloudy weather.
She was standing outside the boy stuffed the small shop of our college smiling and talking to one of her classmates who happened to pass by. How could someone be that beautiful? Taking the coffee I rushed to accompany her only to drop my tripping over someone’s leg.
