petrichor moment


I was hurrying to quickly reach my class as the prayer was going to start soon, and just when I reached the class, someone pulled my hair from behind. With a scowl, I looked behind and there he was, smiling and winking at me. I shook my head at this guy who just can't stop messing with me, but whatever. When our teacher was teaching something, my eyes went unknowingly to him. He was looking ahead, writing down all the notes, and then suddenly looked at my side. For 2 seconds we held eye contact, and then I just looked away. I didn't know he smiled at that eye contact. I didn't know he was teasing me just to get my reaction. I didn't know he looked at me like that so many times, even before me. I was eating lunch with my friends on his birthday, and he came to give chocolates to every person. When he turned towards me, he put 2 chocolates on my desk. Everyone noticed that. What an idiot! When the school bell rang, everyone took their bags to leave the class hurriedly. I was also hurrying to walk when suddenly I felt a touch on my hand and a slight hold on my fingers. My breath hitched at that moment, and my heartbeat was going n times faster than usual. I knew it was him, but I didn't turn. I left! Shit! Big mistake, girl... On the farewell day, I was hellishly nervous about wearing a saree for the first time. It was a black saree, and I was trying to put up with the plates and all. Everyone was there, but he didn't come yet. And when he came with his group of friends, also wearing a black shirt, at that moment he looked at me after so many days but glanced away. We all came together for the group photo of our batch. Coincidentally, he was standing beside me, and we were standing on the last row. Taking one last breath and pulling up my courage, I touched his hand with mine, and instantly, at that moment, I noticed his body become stiff. But I didn't leave his hand. I finally held his, looking ahead, too nervous to look at him. I could hear his short breathing in nervousness, and then I felt his gaze. Putting my hair strands behind my ear, I turned to look at him. The moment my eyes met his, all the questions were asked in silence. I didn't know what to say, so I just smiled at him. He looked at me for a few seconds and then tightened his hold around my hand, giving me the most beautiful smile. I could see his ears turn red, and as we both were smiling and blushing, we looked away. That photograph captures that moment. When everyone was busy clicking pictures and talking with our teachers, he came behind me, lowering his head to match my level of the head, and whispered, "Looking beautiful." I looked down in shyness, with a blushing red face and a smile on my face. I turned to him, but his face was just a little far from mine, and then I whispered back with a hum, "Hmm, I know." As we were looking at each other, I winked at him, and he just chuckled and shook his head in amusement. I also chuckled looking at him, and then he came beside me and just held my hand The end
