Cinderella in the Metro!

 Mr Charming tried hard to fit the footwear into her feet. Was she the girl in the metro?

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.

  1. The image fits really well with the Cinderella story โ€“ so well that I’m surprised I didn’t think of it before. That’s the way with the best ideas: they seem super-obvious after you’ve seen them, but you couldn’t think of them before. Great story!

  2. LOL… I guess I’m the only one that thought his attraction to a pair of legs without even seeing a face was a bit.. odd? The fetish is strong in this one. Still, if he found happiness, who am I to think otherwise? ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope things worked out for them. Nice story, Shivangi!

    1. Actually, I was inspired by an old Indian movie called Paakezah ( purity) in which the hero looks at the feet of sleeping heroine and falls in love with her. What he does not know is that she is a nautch girl! It is a lovely film. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. A very sweet, romantic story. Fortunate for him that he never threw away the shoe and kept looking for her, and fortunate for her that she was not married and ended up with a guy that really, really, fell for her and never gave up.
