Invisible – 365 Flash Fiction #2

“It will find you” He said….. “It is always beside you without you knowing, always watching what you are doing… it will find you”
“What.?” She turned back and asked surprised… the voice came from behind…. She was on the bus returning home from work…

she turned back and saw him sitting in the seat behind her and smiling at her.. He continued his conversation after that starter “But the interesting thing is it is invisible to you… sometimes people close to you might know its existence… they might even tell you…. but you might not heed to their words”

She did not know what it was all about but she was curious…. she decided to leave that element of unknown aside and jumped into her question “How come others see and I don’t see it…?”

He looked at her and smiled “I said sometimes people close to you see it…. not always… it is complex”
“But won’t these people tell you that it exists…?” She continued the conversation
“They do… but not always consciously…. the problem is you don’t always understand when people tell you” He said

“I don’t understand” She said “what is it…?”
“That is exactly what I was telling… I am not close to you.. we don’t even know each other and I don’t see it… but I am trying to explain to you its existence and see you are not understanding what I am saying…”

“Don’t play games with me… what the heck do you mean by all this….?… stranger…” She was annoyed
“I am not playing with you” he said… “As I told you I am merely telling you about the existence of something that you are not aware of…” He smiled again

“ok…. I don’t know… So why bother…?” She was getting restless… “I don’t know…. I don’t care… so be it…” She stopped looking at him and turned away…. She could feel him lean forward…

“Have you heard about destiny…?” He asked in a whisper

“Destiny….? Yes…. I know about destiny…. what about destiny…?”
“You don’t have to worry… it will find you even if you don’t see it…. but it reflects in the people around you…. if you look closely….you can see”

She turned back and looked at him… He did not say anything and his smile slowly faded
She looked at him to see if she can find something…. if she can see her destiny… nothing… his face was blank… it was expressionless….

Did he really talk to her… Is he real…? She thought to herself…. may be not….She has had a long day… a very bad…. very long day… but his words kept ringing in her ears
“it reflects in the people around you……. it reflects in the people around you…” she looked at people around her…. for the first time in so many years traveling in the same bus in the same route at the same time…

she must have been traveling with the same faces around her…. She felt as if she has been traveling in that bus for eternity… she closed her eyes and let the cool breeze from outside send her a message that she can understand… She did not care if the man was still sitting behind her….
