It is said that never love a person so much that you don't know when you start hating that person that much and never hate a person so much that you don't know when you start loving that person that much. Exactly that's what I actually believe in.
We usually talk to people on WhatsApp but if there's a sudden message from an unknown number that moment of curiosity everyone has that who it might be? Does the person know me? Should I reply? What if I don't know that person? And many more questions but talking to that person is a very nice feeling because we don't know that person.
Same happened with Alia one day. She was lying on her bed as usual but suddenly she heard her mobile beep and she thought that it might be her friend Sana's message. So she picked her phone without burning a second. But what she saw in her phone kept her bug-eyed for a while because it wasn't Sana's message it was an unknown message! It was an unsaved number that popped up.
She opened the message and there was a ''Hey!'' messaged to her. She was as keen as mustard to reply to that person as ''Hi!'' And she stopped for the person to reply to her and what she saw on her screen was Typing...Typing..........Typing.......................... but no reply was given. She was getting more curious now. Suddenly there was a message in her inbox she opened it and saw written ''Rahul here!'' Now Alia was all ears and she replied ''Sorry I don't know you!''
So the person goes offline. She is now online for more than 15 mins and she has not received any message from the person. But after a few seconds, there was a typing....... on her phone at the top and what was written! ''But I know you! You are Alia right?'' Oh my god now what Alia is thinking is if I don't know him how does he know my name? She is getting cold now because the person is still online. But now she the gains courage to write up and texts ''But how do you know me? Have we ever met?''
Now it was being 2 hours that they have started chatting. The reply comes ''No we haven't met but I know you, You live in Mumbai, right?'' Alia is totally in a chicken and egg situation but then she thinks to tell her friend Sana about this. Sana knows the ropes so she was the only left hope to help her out. So Alia messages her all about the situation. Sana tells her to block him because she doesn't know him but Alia isn't ready at all because this was happening to her the first time in her life, so she didn't listen to her. She messaged the person ''Bye good night.'' So the person also replied ''Bye good night take care.''
Now she was going to sleep on it and thought that she couldn't concentrate on her studies so she called it a day. Alia woke up early in the morning to see whether the person had given any message to her? and what she saw was written ''Hi good morning Alia. Did you sleep well yesterday?'' Alia was thinking of typing but then stopped for a moment. Her hands were shivering as she thought what if her parents come to know about this!
She switches off her phone. She was called by her mother for breakfast so she goes. But she looked puzzled so her mom asked her what has happened to her? But she smiles and doesn't spill a word. Alia is eating but her eye is on her phone constantly. What if the person calls her! Should she pick the phone? 'No' she mutters to herself.
But now it's her time to go to her college so she picks her cellphone and bag, tieing her shoelace she gets out of her house. She takes a rickshaw and takes a seat. She switches on her phone and her inbox had 3 messages from that unsaved number. She opens her WhatsApp. The person had written ''Hey Alia, what happened, are you there? why ain't you replying me? Alia again feeling a bit confused she types ''Hey sorry Rahul actually I was having breakfast so couldn't answer you. He's online now and type's ''Ok, no worries. Alia is now in love with Rahul and here begins her love story with an unknown person and with an unknown number.
