When he saw her


He could easily see her amidst the throng present at the concert even though he was standing at a distance. He had only met her once, at a party of a mutual friend but he remembered her quite distinctly. There was nothing special yet there was something extraordinary about her. Instead of going to her and greeting her straight away, he chose to look at her for a moment standing at a safe distance. She seemed to be enjoying the concert as her smile ran widely across her plump cheeks. She was dressed casually but elegantly in black jeans, boots and a black leather jacket. She stood tall with an air of calm self-confidence. She was very fair with a tinge of makeup. Her short dark hair was tied into a high bun. She had a rather funny nose. She was beautiful.

Over the years of their marriage, looking at her from a distance would still remain his favorite part.

    There is so much happening here. It’s a very vivid description in such few words. Great read.
    And that drawing adds so much to it. Love the drawing too. Multi-talented!
