First Love?

Maybe this is the best 55 I’ve written, maybe it is the most pathetic. What it is, I’ve no clue.
Disclaimer: Rahul is a purely fictitious character with no resemblance to any person I know.

Rahul could think of nothing, but those eyes.

He didn’t know what love was, but felt maybe this is it. But how could those eyes have this effect? Neither beautiful actresses, nor shapely models had moved him; how could those eyes make him swoon?

Try as he might, he couldn’t forget his face, his eyes.

    KJo has corrupted a lot of Indians I see.

    ‘HIS face’, ‘HIS eyes’ … Nice twist 🙂

    the surprise element was spoiled for me by the tweets !!

    After the first two paragraphs, I was expecting either a total klpd ending – his dog for eg, or a total senti ending – death of a GF or his wife. this was certainly unexpected 😉

    nice twist! to the tale

    hmm…Is it just me or is the klpd ending has become mundane by now?

    P.S: I was half-expecting dog’s eyes or a baby’s eyes

    Rakesh, it seems so 😛

    Sangfroid, thanks dude 🙂

    Rama, damn you Rakesh 😡

    Badrinath, glad I was able to surprise 🙂

    Kulbir, hard to imagine with such a common name, but I do not know any Rahul 🙂 just picked the first common name that came to mind…

    obelix, any specific reason? 😦

    Gopal, 🙂

    Arun, thanks!

    Chittaranjan, yeah I think those endings have become mundane now.. but a twist seems to me, as of now, the only way to end a 55. will get around to proper endings maybe later on… anyway at least with this story I was able to surprise many, for most the expectations of the end were very different 🙂

    thrs a possibility of him looking into a mirror … 😀

  12. 14 Kunal March 21, 2009 at 4:57 pm

    @nks, never thought of that!! Now that would have been an extreme definition of a narcissist 🙂 .. and would have made for an extraordinarily different ending 😛

    hmmmm, is it another guy or a mirror? *the first thing that he saw after his “aankhon ka oprashun” kind? to explain the love* 🙂

  14. 16 Kunal March 30, 2009 at 1:32 pm

    @manu, it is another guy 🙂 and the “aankhon ka oprasun” kind of story could have added credence to the narcissist story 😛
