Did you ever ride all by yourself at 2 am, like a wanderlust, not knowing what to expect from that night. I will tell you my story. That night I was in some mood. I stepped out at 2 am. Roomie asks "Where to?" and I didn't reply and took off. The busiest city in the country now was silent. Yes there were a few cars and some street lights. But I was in a completely different place. I was riding my old bike, but she felt brand new, she ran like I never knew. Singing to the tunes of Kishor kumar, I felt I was in love. And that was when some words i started spitting. They didn't really make sense to me then, but when I had finished, I realized i had just made my first poem. Yes it was all drama like. But then I was also probably living in a dream. And there was more drama in the night left, I kinda had a feel. I raced away on the road, like a nomad under the shining stars, I indeed felt like one. I crossed a local crosswords, that stays awake all night long. And the thought of finding somebody crazy like me, excited me. I went in, I saw two store persons at the counter. I went to take a look at the books they had. something that I can stay up to on this amazing night. And that was when I saw her. The girl with the most beautiful eyes, lost in some work of Audrey Niffenegger. And I did something that I would never do on any other usual night. I walked upto her. Pulled out a chair right opposite to her. "I wouldn't have been surprised to see you at a club at this hour on a weekend. But here, it surprises me" I said. "But I am still going to ask you the question, that I might have asked you at the club." I didn't know from where the next words came. "Can I buy you a book?" I mean really Can I buy you a book?? And to all to all those surprises of that night. The biggest one came when she smiled and said "Accidentally hers" Completely bowled by her answer, I just stared at her. an she repeated "Accidently hers by Jamie Beck " "Ofcours , Jamie Beck" was all I said and walked up to the counter. The store person helped me with the book. I took a pen from the counter and penned down the poem that i had just made on the first page of book. I guess that is reason they usually keep the first page blank :P And wrote my number at the bottom. Went up to my best surprise of the night. And kept the book on the table.And walked of because I had had enough for the night. So what did you get on your lonely ride at a night. Do share. Ps: If you were wondering, that girl is my wife now. :P

That is a lovely story. At 2 am I am asleep. I don't do the whole driving along thing unless it is from my college to home for breaks. I also hate driving so anytime I am home my boyfriend drives and at school my friend Morgan drives.

@CrazyKP Haha no. I am too impatient to drive at all. The drive from home to college makes me angry. I have extremely bad road rage and it makes my blood pressure rise.
