SHORT STORY – EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL

EVERY THING IS BEAUTIFULGet off, you lazy, its 7.30 am’ yells my alarm at sharp 7.30.It is second most hated sound after Andrew’s warning. God, I hate Mondays, it is the worst day in my life. After 48 tension free hours you are going to get blames on you .After a quick ‘GHUST BATH’. I was readying myself to get slaughtered. A quick sandwich from George marked my journey to slaughterhouse. I had to rush through the station in order to get myself in the train. Now it will be the most boring 40 mins in my life.

This is said to be one of the most beautiful in the world. They say its beautiful because it have beautiful country side, bridges, farms and beautiful nature all on the way. But all I saw, all these three years are some crappy buildings, people who work hard everyday from dusk to dawn and earn nothing and many group of plants that have no one to take care off. Seriously every time anyone talks about this beauty, I always wondered what are they talking about.

It is not a crowded compartment. There only few people. There is an ugly fat guy who is lost in the middle of new paper. Then a child making loud noises. A gypsy girl who is lost in deep thoughts. All I can here is pointless talking of people, which is my hate list no.3.Then there is blonde hair moving in the wind like rhythm of music, those black eyes, and smile which was simply heavenly. Who is that? I have never seen anyone like this. The orange hood she wore, the random smile, the hands that rubbing the window glass and the gentle caressing her hair. I felt like I was melting in it. I never had that feeling before. For a moment I felt like I was in heaven. It feels like everything has washed away. Is this is that one of the fantasy stories where Angels come down from sky.
And then our eyes locked and it was different. I felt like I was middle of everything I wanted, I felt like I this was what I was looking all this time, the missing part of my life, that was sitting right after two seats. I never felt like this before. I have seen beautiful girls before but this was different. This was magical. I had to look away before she find that I was staring at her.
But wait, some things have changed, Am I on the wrong train. Oh, no Andrew going to kill me.
Train was moving through middle of a beautiful farm. I saw many farmers here and there in the field smiling at their year long hard work. It was beautiful, no words to describe it. There was pride, happiness, joy, hard work all where there in those smiles. The train is now heading to the most beautiful scenery of nature you could ever imagine. The trees with ripped leaves ready to shed them. I have never seen it before. Who take care of these trees? I asked myself. Why can’t people on the other side take care of these trees? It was heavenly when the train had to take that beautiful curve. The train reaches country side now. This village is different. These buildings are beautifully built and are arranged in a special pattern. ‘The government is definitely spending a lot in this side of the country and neglecting the other side. I told myself. I had to look inside once more. The girl is gone. There is child sitting there, where the girl was sitting. The child seems happy. Not only the child, everyone in train was happy and was smiling. I could feel the warm. I could see them smiling. The world is totally different in this side. I said myself. Train is now heading into a station. ‘Harold’. I read myself before coming back to sense, ‘WHAT?’I’m in the city where I work? If I was in the right train then how did the scenes outside changed this fast? After a short walk to office. I was informed that Andrew is looking for me. ‘Oh! God my day all these good things are ruined? I said when I leaned in to his office. ‘Good morning’ Andrew wished me. I wasn’t sure if he was wishing me. ‘Good morning, sir ‘I wished him back. ‘Your work was brilliant; keep it up ‘What? Andrew appreciating me? Am I dreaming? I have never seen anything other than his angry face. I wasn’t sure about what was happening .Everything seemed to have taken a complete turn. ‘I’ enjoying it’ I said myself as I sit on my desk. As a great man said the world is beautiful, you can see it only if you open your eyes.
