Missed opportunity

Shreya was getting tensed. She got up late , her alarm magically forgot to ring. She was still cursing it under her breath. She didn’t iron her dress, trusting her alarm . She ironed in hurry , but spoiled her dress. She took out another dress and calmed her down a bit and started again. She was already late for the meeting . Few of her clients were coming with major project, she ought to be on time .

Either way her cab driver went, after long waiting for her . She called her office and said she will reach there soon , after lot of apologies she disconnected the call.

She had ate her quick breakfast, sometimes corn flakes comes handy. She packed her things and got in car and drove .

As she was driving , she was mentally rehearsing the meeting points . She was so confident, they will get that deal.

She found the huge crowd in the road , as suspected a accident . She closed her eyes and prayed a minute before getting out. She checked at his time , it’s already late . But her humanity took over her work ,There she found a man , struggling to breathe , holding his heart. She hurried towards him and did first aid and called the ambulance .

She went near him, he was half conscious , he hold her hand for support. She couldn’t leave him at this helpless situation . She went along and waited till he crossed Danger zone . Later he wanted to talk to her, she went in and silently thanked her and pointed towards his suitcase.

She gave that to him, he produced a visiting card to her. She took it and checked time. His boss will surely kill him. She checked her phone 20 missed call and loads of message from her office. She tosses the visiting card in her hand bag and hurried . After she reached office , she came to know , client is not there yet. She breathed peacefully. Thanking the God , she went to work on her presentation. She consciously checked all and corrected few things. Later her boss came and said the meeting is cancelled as the client was in some emergency. Meeting was rescheduled to evening , client came in, she was surprised, he was the same person, she saved today . She took the card and checked the name , it’s same person she was preparing presentation for months. She smiled radiately and gave her presentation, he told about the incident to her boss And thanked her again . Her presentation was success plus her humanity impressed him a lot. Sometimes missed alarm, missed cab, missed meeting brings new opportunities And circumstances. Believe in fate, don’t be so hard about that .
