“Hello passengers, the departure of flight no.1453 going to Paris is delayed by 5 hours due to weather condition.”
“Oh no 5 more hours. “said Diya annoyingly.
She is all alone on her own for the first-time flight, that too international. She always wanted to go abroad.
1 month ago –
“Ma, Papa, I got selected for the job in ABC Ltd., Paris.” she jumped and shouted in happiness. After checking the email on her laptop.
“Yoohoo, wow. Congratulations, Diya. “said her father.
“how will you manage all alone there” Mom says worriedly
“Maaa… it’s an opportunity. people don’t get this easily. I have to do this.”
“But Diya, you had never lived alone, away from the house.
“I will manage mamma, don’t worry. This is how I will learn.
She gets up from the waiting area and starts to walk. It really is a very big airport.
“Now how will I kill these 5 hours.” She says to herself
She enters a bookstore. Since she is not that much a book lover just took one round and came out. Besides is an antique store. She skipped it. Then she walks across the aisle just glancing over all the shops.
“Aah, at last” She entered Starbucks.
“One cappuccino please “she definitely is a coffee lover
“It’s just an hour passed. What will I do another 4 hours” While coming out, she bumped into someone.
Oh, sorry sorry. I am so sorry. Was in a hurry” She said to that person.
What you saying Diya, Hurry..of what. You have 4 long hours. ?? “She murmured to herself
“It is ok. Don’t worry. I am Dev. My flight is also delayed. Would you mind joining me? “ He says.
“Alright. She hesitantly said.
They both walked together across the length and breadth of the full airport. Dev keeps on telling her about all the stores there and their histories and story behind the business ideas.
“Hungry, want to have pizza or something?” he asked pointing towards Pizzahut.
“Yes, I love pizzas”
They both had pizza. Dev started telling her about the inception of the company PizzaHut and how after initial failures it became such a big brand. Diya is not that much interested in such business talks but somehow she started liking it. They came out and headed towards the waiting area.
“Wait wait… Is that you??“ She picked a business magazine from the newsstand.
“whaat !!! you are THE Dev Dalmiya. The most successful businessman. The man behind the biggest Dalmiya Empire. And still The most eligible bachelor of the country.” She read all in one breath.
“hmm” He smiled and nodded his head.
“what hmm.. you are..”
“Attention, please. All the passengers on the flight no. 1453 are requested to head to gate no. 2 for boarding. Thank you.”
“That’s my flight. Time flew with you. I still can’t believe you are Dev Dalmiya. Nice meeting you. I got to go. Bye.” She started walking towards gate no. 2
He is still staring at her. Smiling. Just before that last turn, she turned behind.
“At least tell me your name,” He asked.
“Diya Sharma” She replied, waved her hand and goes.
See you soon, Diya Sharma, flight no. 1453, Bombay terminal” He smiled
Will their destinies ever cross the path again??
