He had fallen in love when he was 20. He was travelling by a metro while she slept right across him with her face hidden under jacket. But what had caught his eye were her lovely legs which rested on the seat.
At one of the stations, she woke up with a start. And before he could catch a glimpse of her face, she ran out of the train leaving behind her stilettos. The crowd enveloped her. He lifted the footwear and kept it.
Life did not move on for him, though. Professionally, he became the proud owner of a chain of hotels. But he stayed single, in search of the gorgeous owner of those stilettos.
Occasionally, he would request a guest to try it on. They would do it willingly, but he never found the right legs.
This time, the stilletos fitted perfectly! He looked at her finger… no ring! Elatedly, he asked her to join him for dinner.
