Day 400

It's November already and so the air is a bit chilly. I have to go college early today because I have my practicals today. The train ride, as usual, crowded.

What more do you want in your life when the person you like is standing next to you? You become a timid person. Just like that. I dare to look at him once. It's real. He's this close to me.
