Empty Wooden Bench And A Mysterious Face

He was wondering what wrong he did that god is punishing him with all the loneliness. He was a loner and the empty wooden bench was his best companion. Every day he used to come here and the empty wooden bench would be waiting for him. As he was about to sit, a mystery face in a photo lying next to him on the bench caught his eye. He picked it up to see that mystery face hiding behind the scarf. It immediately brought a smile on his face. It was too intriguing to miss. He was very sure there was a beautiful face hidden behind that scarf but sadly he couldn’t do anything. He titled the photo from right to left and left to right just to look at once that face, but to no avail. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t do anything. After all, it was just a photo. For years he felt lonely and today was a special day. An unknown photo of girl made him feel really happy.



He kept the photo at the same place on the bench from where he picked it up and silently hoped that the photo would remain there when he comes again tomorrow. As much as he would have loved to carry that photo with him, yet he resisted from taking it with him. Instead of carrying it with him always, he was content with that small moment of bliss he experienced when he saw the photo. It was the moment he was waiting for.



Before leaving, he picked up the photo again one last time and thought to himself, “Some things in the world remain best if you leave them untouched wherever they are” and walked off with a smile on his face after many years of loneliness, leaving the photo where it was. But some thoughts were still lingering in his mind…

Is it the Innocent Look?
Is it the Dark Eyebrow?
Is it the slightly visible Black hair?
Is it the Face that is hiding behind the Scarf?
Is it the Scarf that hides the Mysterious face?
Is it the Diamond Ring that is shining brightly? Or
Is it the eyes that are silently trying to convey something?
