Daily Post Prompt :Elegant

In response to daily post’s prompt : Elegant

Today was a cold day, not a day to go out, but it couldn’t be helped. On my way, I met three women who interacted with me.One of them was a teller in the bank, her mannerism leaves  a lot to be desired.

Second one was a passenger on the bus I was travelling in, she seemed like a person whom nature had produced with a smile, she spoke and looked around had a broad smile. I thought to myself, “I’d like to meet her kind of people, she is a breath of fresh air.”

The third one was a young girl also waiting for the bus like me. as soon as I came close to her, she said,”Hello,” she  had an innocent smile, she didn’t know me, but knew to be courteous is good for us all. I asked her if she was a student.

She nodded yes. Having nothing common to discuss, I asked, “Are you in the business faculty?”

She answered, ‘no I’m studying Math. ”

She asked me, ‘Do I look like a business student?’

At that point, I wondered how does one look like a student of a particular faculty. I smiled and replied, “these days whoever I ask what they’re studying most of them say, Business.”

One thing I forgot to ask was what’s her name. She was a clever girl, had fine manners, gave me the impression she’s certainly well-bred.

    • Thank you, sometimes these one-word prompt from WordPress is challenging.
      I thought of my trip to the bank and what I experienced along the way,
      realized I’d use it to write the prompt. The cute student
      was exactly who I was looking for. 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    I enjoyed reading your descriptions of the people you met. You are gifted in writing, in how you can paint a picture with words.

    All good wishes,


  2. It was very delightful to read and I agree with both the comments posted above 🙂 I also felt I was reading a parable, and, I think that the title of the post also matches the style in which it is written.

    • Thank you so much,at this time it was not easy to write anything thoughtful,
      I had to depend on my experience as a bystander watching these three ladies who
      certainly were unique in their own way. 🙂
