The girl who loved bulls !!!

We were so busily engrossed between those cute looking fishes. The aquarium shop was filled with all kinds of fishes, all colors. I simply loved watching them. And so immersed was I, for a moment i forgot that i had come with her. For her actually.

"You love fishes a lot na?" I asked her.
"Umm...I love bulls ", She said with a twinkle in her eye.

It so happened that
she visited my native place after one whole long year and as my luck would hav it they din stay with us. But She was an alien this time which naturally meant I was the guide !!! But But !! She doesnt seem to have plans of looking around the city. Grr... So, Finally i had to do something. So when i paid her a visit ....
I got a good welcome....Goodies were served by her mom which were sort of okay !!! I ate a few of them..... And as soon as I found out that she needed to submit a report on different kinds of fishes I had to do something...I offered to take her to an aquarian !!!
Now came another problem. How to take only her and leave her brother home. He liked roaming more than watching TV. One good excuse was that we go on a 2 wheeler !!! But would they send her with me on a 2 wheeler?? After convincing all sections of people that it was perfectly safe (including her brother by bribing him a chocolate) I could finally take her out.
The aquarian was a 10 km journey from the house which meant that i had enough time in travelling. We talked a lot of things while going. And luckily we dint talk about fishes...which I was fearing would be the main topic.
In half an hour we reached the 'fish corner'. That was a beautiful spot. I loved the place. That was my first visit there too !!! Finally after she completed her work writing names and scientific names and their egg sizes and their eating habits and blah blah blah she said she would buy me a gift. She bought me two gold fish. Yeah....And god i was so happy....After all 'A first gift' is always special. I wanted to give her a big hug. And you know i couldnt.
"You love fishes a lot na?" I asked her.
"Umm...I love bulls ", She said with a wild twinkle in her eye.
She chuckled. I chuckled. She giggled. I giggled. And then we laughed for quite some time. I dint understand why bulls but somehow she said it in a way that was down right funny. I dint think of it much. We laughed all the way back. I left her home. The day after she was going back to her home town.
Like every time I dint convert even this chance into Gold either !!! I loved her so much !!! But not a word to her !!! I still have those two gold fish. And this new template is in her memory !!! And it so reminds me of her.
The next afternoon, while i was lazing around with the newspaper half asleep, reading the editorial which contained letters to the editor in one corner and daily horoscope in the other, my eyes fell on the picture of a Gold fish against the Zodiac 'Aquarius'. Hehe I laughed to myself. I scrolled my eyes above to see my Taurean horoscope.
What do i find?? A bull against it. Gosh And she loved bulls. And she said that indeed !!! I am a bull. Bull is a taurean symbol. She loved taureans. Dunno Does this in any language mean she loves me. I was left wondering untill the long gap before i can meet her again.

Cinderella. said...

You know, you remind me of my puppy love days !

The impish attempts of hinting your mind.Yet not trying to be too obvious.Analysing every little moment that you share...

And then with the passage of time, you grow up. Love matures. It aint puppy love anymore.

Ah...the nostalgia !







P.s : Got kinda disappointed to read that this was a fictious thing.But then, somehow my heart tells me,this isnt.Hope its not.
Coz I wanna be happy knowing this happy thing happening to you.
:)
