about a girl who lives in a small town but wishes to achieve great heights,fulfills all the wishes of her family & this journey takes her to an unknown path...how she copes with different situations & comes out of them...

                                      a smiling guy in the bus

Ziya wakes up in the morning listening to her mother's prayers and chantings.she doesn't like the noise of these prayers which disturb her sleep but it doesn't mean she is an anaetheist.she is a true follower of god but she doesn't thinks that one has to pray everyday to show that they believe in the almighty.but its high time now, has to get up and get ready for the college.so without any more delay she finishes her daily morning chores and goes to catch the bus for college.

To get inside the bus is not an easy job after struggling with many other contenders of the bus ,she goes in only to find that there is no seat left for her, so today as always has to go standing, the whole hour trip.

but wait ...today someone has reserved her a seat besides him ;who is he??looks like a decent boy. ziya doesn't know her,and then all the thougths come in her mind like....he is not from her college,then why so helpful ...is something fishy...anyways she'll get to sit and so she accepts the offer of sitting there without even saying a thanks ....that guy didn't speak a word the whole way , just kept staring out of the window and smiling faintly..

ziya reaches her college.still thinking of that guy.but forgets about him as soon as she meets her friends and they spend the whole day talking, attending lectures and bunking classes..in short enjoying the day...

she reaches home and then after spending  time with brother and mom finishes her homework and dinner then goes in her dream world.....

her dreams are usually the only place where she is free to go anywhere , have fun and she is the princess....

Again  she gets up hearing to her mom's prayers...same story everyday and then reaches bus stop...wondering will she be getting a seat today and then the smiling face of that unknown guy comes to her mind , which compels her to think of him...

and here comes the bus....unknowingly she starts searching for a seat and finds a seat but its again besides that guy; he smiles at her ...finding no other place to sit she goes and sits there....the boy didnt  say anything but today his smile was different...ziya wanted to ask why he doesnt let anyone else to sit there but her....but she couldnt..and her destination came....

today she was thinking of him the whole day ...her friend sheela noticed it  and asked whats the matter ...she described about that guy ....she told her ;he must be some fool just forget ...

the same thing happens to her for quite a few days and then one day he wasn't there on the bus...her eyes were searching for him....she kept seeing everyone who enters the bus but in vain....

the next day when she entered the bus he was sitting ....she went there and asked him why he didn't come yesterday to which he just smiled without saying a word.she asked who he is ,does he knows her,why does he lets only her to sit by his side, and so on.....but that guy didn't reply he was just smiling...she started shouting at him...what do you think of yourself...why are you smiling?? i know you guys very well ...and so on....

listening to her shoutings a guy sitting behind them told ziya that he is deaf and dumb...he cant answer you...

Ziya got numb ...she couldn't say anything and kept staring at him...she thought he could't listen and speak but i acted as one and couldn't said him thanks for the seat he used to save for her and instead of showing gratitude i doubted his intentions and shouted at him....she was engulfed in her notions and her destination arrived....

she left the bus ...thinking about how rude she was and will definitely speak to him and apologize for her bad behaviour....

The following day as soon as she entered the bus;her eyes started wandering to find him but he wasn't there....she waited everyday for him in the bus but could not see him again......

and thus she couldn't apologize for her doings and his smiling face always remained in her mind......

The End
