I am humming a song as I ride my green colour bicycle – the weather is perfect! And there he comes, riding on a horse, my knight in shining armour. Tall, dark, handsome, kind, funny- he has it all.
I stop, he stops. We look at each other and sparks fly. He waves at me, he seems to be trying to say something but before I can comprehend, I wake up.
Not again, I don’t know when will I meet him and figure out what was he trying to say. This dream has been haunting me for the past 5 years now and I have started seeing it in the day too.
Except that, I can really see him now. Its not a dream anymore. Just that he’s not on a horse but in a cab and he’s asking me for a lift.
My heart swells with joy, he is the guy I saw in my dreams but before I do a happy dance, out come a little girl and a boy.
“Daddy we would love a ride on the bicycle” they yell in delight, as I look on, crestfallen now.
After dropping them off to the shopping mall, I head back, sad and wonder why do I see that dream after all.
“A good chap you have there lassie, the most eligible single Dad in town” says a passerby as I can now slowly put the pieces of the puzzle together.
