Click here before reading the story. Once I reached the Kuala Lumpur International Airport parking bay I jumped out of my car and rushed to the airplane ticket counter to get my seat numbered. A young lady in her elegant airline dress took my boarding pass that I have printed earlier, smiled and asked:

AIRLINE COUNTER GIRL:  Do you have any specific seat preference, sir?

ME:  A seat beside a charming girl, would you mind?

AIRLINE COUNTER GIRL:  Sure, you can, take a chair and sit near me.

ME:  Not now, next time maybe. Give me your number then.

AIRLINE COUNTER GIRL:  That’s confidential sir.

ME:   Nothing is private lately.  Don't waste time unless shyness is holding you back. 

AIRLINE COUNTER GIRL:  Here’s your ticket, sir. If it’s meant to be, we’ll meet. Till then have a nice journey.

ME:  Thank you.

Later in the flight while I was reading a magazine, an eye-catching lady sitting next to me said:

THE LADY:  I am sorry to make you feel uncomfortable sir. I have to apply this ointment around my neck. I know it doesn't smell good to others. I have a slight cough, hopefully it helps.

ME: No worries.  Where are you going?

THE LADY:  I am meeting my friends in Kuching at a wedding.

From there our conversation started. I've been around with a lot of people so having conversations with others no longer scares me as much as it used to, but those all usually have a set path that we talk, discussing basics like work, nature, kindness and family.

I love meeting people. I also used to get nervous but once I get comfortable, I chill out a ton.

This lady seemed willing to talk and I was just comfortable discussing about things with her. I was  thinking if I can try my best to relax and maybe continue a conversation with her later. 

THE LADY:  Are you Malaysian?

ME:  I'm not but I am Malay from Semenanjong.

THE LADY:  (laughed)

Me:  May i have your mobile number.

THE LADY:  Let me have yours. I will do the first call. (smiled).

I wrote my number at the bottom of my printed boarding pass, tore the portion that i wrote and gave it to her.

When the aircraft landed I left the plane leaving her with a smile. As i was walking to the exit route something dropped from my upper pocket. I picked it up and it was my boarding pass and at the back of it i saw a girl's name and a half written mobile number. That number was probably from the airline girl at KLIA check-in terminal and I must have torn that ticket and given the portion to the lady I met in the plane.

I re-winded my conversation that i had with the girl earlier at the counter and cursed myself for not paying attention. Since then every time when I travel through KLIA, I glanced that airways counter and she wasn't there always.
