My Night in Office

You can see hardly anyone in my office after 7.00 PM, it was one of those days when my team had to wait, I was feeling bad about it, but work is work :)

My team was almost done by 8:30 PM and we were about to leave when I got a call from my Boss who said the client wants to have a con-call and that too at 10.00 PM (Ah…! This is what happens when you are handling International Clients), I asked my team to leave and decided to stay back  for the call. My team left, there was no one in the office except the office boy at the reception who was half asleep, I was busy Tweeting, when I heard the coffee machine, I thought it was the office boy but I was wrong, he was fast asleep when I reached the reception to chat with him, it was almost 9.30PM, I did not wake him up, I decided to check myself, I went near the coffee vending machine, I could feel someone had been there… but who?

Our office is at the 7th Floor, the entire floor was quite, I was brave, I walked up to all the cabins to check if someone is in, and as I passed by, in one of the cabin’s there was a faint light, One gentleman was working on the Laptop, there was the hot coffee mug next to him, he was wearing a long Jacket, he looked at me and smiled, I’m Jack, I do night shift here…he got up to shake hands, when my spider rang, I had to rush to attend the call, I excused myself and said I will be back after the call and chat….

My call went up till 11.15 PM, but the call ended with a happy client saying good night.
I was dead tired, wanted to go home and sleep, was winding up, when I remembered the gentleman in the room, I had never seen him in office, I picked up my bag and knocked the cabin to see him, no one answered, I pushed the door , there was no light in the room, I switched on the light, there was no one…I assumed Jack had left, suddenly it stroked to me that he had mentioned he is doing night shift, then where is he???

I rushed to the reception, woke up the office guy, asked him about Jack he was clueless; he said there was no one doing night shift in office, I did not know how to react…but I’m sure, I will never forget my night in office!

Will you have coffee with me?

Alen was a 19 years old, staying with his mother, loved his Bicycle, his dog, his paint brush and his beautiful room, he wanted to live every moment of his life as he had very less of it, yes …you are guessing it right he had leukemia (cancer) and was not curable, but despite of his sickness he was never sad he did not fear death, full of life and cheerful, that was just amazing about this guy.

Right in front of Alen’s house there was a Book & Music CD shop, he used to sit by his window and watch passer bys, children going to school and sketch them…One day when he was sketching near his window suddenly a beautiful face caught his attention, his eyes were engaged with the innocence and cuteness of this beauty, he wanted to go and meet her know who she is, talk to her, paint her, it was almost evening , he saw her take a bus and leave.

That night he couldn’t sleep at all, his dreams were crowded with beautiful thoughts of the lady, and he wanted to be lost in it forever.  Next day he visited the shop and saw she was a sales assistant in the shop. Her name was Stacy.  He said he had come to buy some good music CD and books on love stories. She suggested a few, whatever she said sounded like a beautiful music, Alen was madly in love, he went there every day to buy a Book /CD … He told his mother about it, his mother said “why don’t you ask her out one day?”

He decided he will do that- gathered all his courage and asked “Beautiful lady, Will you have Coffee with me?  Stacy just smiled and packed the book he asked for. Every day from then Alen would ask her out for a coffee, but she just smiled and said nothing…few weeks later Alen passed away, his mother cried inconsolably, all she had was her son and she lost him forever …

Days passed Stacy wondered why Alen doesn’t come to meet her in the shop, one day she decided to check.  She went to his house, Alen’s mother was not sure of who she was, when she introduced herself, Alen’s mother had tears in her eyes, she said …”So you are stacy , Alen loved you so much, he just asked you out for a coffee every day, but you denied , how can you be so heartless, he passed away with this wish in his heart”  Stacy left the house with tears in her eyes.

Half a month after Alen’s death, his mother decided to shift to a new place , she was cleaning Alen’s cupboard , She saw books which were unopened, the CD’s were sealed she opened one of them a small chit fell on the floor, she picked it up..It read “Hi’ ‘m stacy, Will you have coffee with me…?"
Alen’s mother was shocked to read it, she opened all the books and CD to find that each had a chit which read “Alen..I will”, “Alen…I Love you” …. Alen’s mother went to the book shop immediately and there she was informed that Stacy could not survive an accident and she was no more…

The Coffee is still waiting, but the people who wanted to have it are no more…
Love makes no sound!
