Two people from two different worlds fall in love. They have never seen each other, until today... right now. The story captures that final moment when they come across each other.


He looked outside his apartment window. The long journey from Pakistan
to JFK Airport, New York... then to his apartment in Bronxville... and 
now back to Manhattan... he hadn't slept for the past thirty six 
hours...and yet not a bit of fatigue. She was the reason... he smiled 
to himself. 

He stepped outside his apartment building. Seven years... it had been
seven years since he had known her. And today was the grand finale. He 
was finally going to meet her. Finally he was going to bear witness to 
her physical presence in his life. At last he was going to look at this 
girl in flesh and blood. He rushed to the bus stop... His heart was 
racing. He could feel his blood racing through his veins. Every passing 
moment, every passing second he could feel the love inside him 
growing... surging... burning him. It was nice and cloudy, slight 
gentle drizzle now and then... 

Walking on the wet pavement at the bus stop, her words were still fresh
in his ears. She giggled and asked, “So when did you first realize you 
love me?”... He smiled, and carried on, “well it was I guess somehow 
always there... I mean... whenever I was down with the blues, you were 
the only one who came to my mind to whom I could pour my heart out”... 
she laughed, “Yeah Yeah... and what about all the hotties...” He cut 
her off, “ ... no way... Angel don't you say that... it's 
you.... It has always been you...” He slowed down, “just was a fool to 
say it so late”... she smiled. He could feel her breath fall on the 
mouth piece. Each and every second he had loved her was fresh in his 
mind as if it was happening then and there. For a long time he hadn't 
even heard her voice... he'd sit at the computer waiting for her name 
to turn green... they'd chat on the computer for hours. He was 
surprised that they could talk for hours... he wasn't much of a talker 
at all. The bus stopped with a jolt near him. He looked outside as he 
eased back in his seat on the bus. The rain drops streaked the glass on 
his window, taking their sweet time... slowly carving their way down 
the glass... just like his memories. 

The bus stopped finally at the fifth avenue. He scampered out... ah New
York City... the city had a strange magic about it that separated it 
from all other cities in the world... the towering structures, the busy 
streets, music in the streets... ah he had missed the city... Soon he 
started walking towards Madison. The city was alive... it felt the city 
had embodied her... at that moment, he was in love with the city, the 
wet air, the grey clouds, and the little cold breeze... everything was 
perfect. He looked at his watch... He waved at a cab. “To Madison 
please”. He eased back in the seat and looked outside. His heart was 
beating against his chest like a power pound on the bass of the drum. 
He couldn't help smiling. He kept looking at the watch now and then. 
1:00pm, still 30 minutes before he could see his angel. 

“Angel, can I ask you something?”, he asked coyly.  “Sure”, she wrote
back on the messenger window, he waited a few moments during which she 
quickly wrote back, “what???... say it... no holding back”. He smiled 
and finally mustered up the courage to say it. “I want to hear you 
voice... can you call me... please”. She smiled back and said, “Goofy 
of course, wait up”. A few moments later his phone rang. He picked it 
up and found himself intoxicated with the sweetest music ever. Her 
voice was sonorous, like... like... like the music of heaven. He 
savored it all, drank it to his fill... quenching his thirst for her. 
She could feel that... She could feel the ache he was going through. 
She loved him so much. She wanted to reach out to him... she wanted him 
to hold her then and there in his arms... he wanted to pull her close 
to him, feel her heart beat against his... he wanted to love her at 
that moment... feel every single inch of her body... and wanted that 
moment to last forever. 

The taxi pulled up outside Madison. He paid the fare, didn't bother
about the change, and hurried towards its entrance. He sat outside on a 
bench. Looking nervously at his watch... scanning people coming his 
way, he kept looking for her. Somehow he knew that even tough he had 
never seen her. He would know who she is when she would come. The watch 
read 1:30pm on the dial. He nervously bit his lips. Slowly the time 
moved on to 1:31pm... 1:32pm... she is not here yet... he stood up and 
started pacing the pavement... his heart began to beat... he could feel 
the anxiety grab hold of him. He tried talking to himself, “Maybe she
