Coincidence. Does a such a thing truly exist? To believe
that certain things happen accidentally and at random would
also mean that destiny and fate is a mere illusion. Is that what
this life really is? Are we just simply bumping in and out of each
other lives by mere chance? I saw you a day ago. In that single
moment, the biological functions of my body ceased to do its job.
My heart stopped pounding away. Completely breathless. This
feeling, I’ve never felt it before. I knew exactly where I wanted to
be in ten years. It’s all a blur now, you’ve altered me in ways I
didn’t know was possible. That moment in time will forever haunt
me. I was waiting for the train to come, and it finally did. My mind
was jumbled up, one thousand thoughts per second. I was looking
out to the world, but I wasn’t really looking. It was more like staring
out and seeing pixelated light. The train doors opened, and there you
were, reading your phone. Those brown curls stole my attention,
those eyes kept it forever. I had my whole life figured out, and now?
Coincidence, there’s no such thing. This is a fact I’ve accepted with
ease because just one hour ago something crazy happened.
That girl from the train? She’s my new boss.
