Oblivious to the chatter in the train, I’m lost in solving mystery along with Detective Fletcher.

Suddenly, I hear this voice. It’s one of those bassy baritones that’s heard on radio.

His voice mesmerizes me.

I try to picture how he’d look.

And there he is, all modelesque but in a timeless manner.

My eyes are restrained by the head, forcing them not to ogle at him.

Is he avoiding me too, I wondered?

We said ‘Bless you’ in unison when a co-passenger sneezed.

Our eyes met.

And we needed no words.
