The night before the 'fall', I was going home after work around 7pm, and was in an elevator going down, feeling extremely tired, and bored to RIP status. As I got into that elevator, there were 2 other people in it...the office cleaner girl who I'm quite friendly with and also another tall guy in a suit. I didn't take much notice of him cos I was busy saying Hello to the cleaner girl and asking when she's going home etc. But I did notice the guy looking at me a couple of times, as if he knew me from before, with smiles and nods etc. I didn't know him at all, but boy o boy he was quite good-looking! Dark brown cropt hair, very tall, strong, lean, rough and tough...*ok stop it Biyatch, enough, cos looks like this is becoming the lyrics of the song It's Raining Men!*. Anyways, since an elevator trip isn't gonna last as long as a trip to Canberra would, we reached the Ground level, doors opened and we all stepped out one after the other. He, like a true gentleman held the door for us girls, and then got out. Out the office building and we were on our own. I didn't even look where he was going *trust me I see so many good-looking men every single day and if I go to trace each guy's tracks, I'd be dead by now, heavily crossed eyed and all!*. Little did I know, this elevator bloke was infront of me now and suddenly slowed down to say Hello to me...he casually and smilingly asked me 'so what's planned for tonite?'. Now since he looked like a decent guy, and came out of our office building too, I didn't hesitate to respond. He looked and sounded very familiar, yet I was pretty sure I've never seen/met him before. I just told him that I was going home and that I had no big plans, and flashed a smile too. He told me that he's going out to a pub to meet his other work-mates for Office drinks. And since he was walking in the same direction as where my Train station was, he said it'd nice to chat and walk together. I agreed and so we walked together yakking like good ol' mates. He's originally from Netherlands and is a Dutch dude *no wonder the burning hotness ouch!*. And he asked me about my origins, work etc etc. We walked chatting happily, sharing info about each other and laughing uncontrollably at some points. Anyways, since a random walk between 2 strangers isn't gonna last as long as a walk between 2 lovers would, we both reached our destinations, shook hands and we parted our ways.
It felt good. Real good. It felt like I had known this guy all my life...like a good ol' mate. And no he was not a sleazebag, neither did he ask for my number. We were like long lost mates. And that doesn't happen with every person you meet. It's so rare..atleast in my life it is rare - the 'we just clicked' kinda feeling I mean. The fact that we both didn't hesitate to talk to each other straight away and the fact that we continued talking quite comfortably, enjoying each others' company was indeed a sweet and warm experience. I know he works in the same building and I may or may not bump into him again. But I'm not gonna lose sleep over it hehe. Nothing lasts forever, but we shared a moment that will last an eternity...a warm, sweet and familiar couple of minutes, that isn't common and that got etched in my memory for good. Some strangers leave you with that 'wholesome' feeling that even loved-ones cannot bring about. Anyways, since precious moments don't last as long as memories do, I just gave life to that beautiful moment in this post so it'll remain here forever...
Tell me, what brings an instant familiar feeling between 2 total strangers, that leaves you with that 'complete again' feeling?
