A Gloomy Day

I woke up in the morning after a tired night’s sleep. The clock showed that it was 6 am. I felt so sleepy that I couldn’t get up. I was lying on the bed looking at the roof, thinking that it was another day of doing the same work. I really get bored doing the same thing daily except eating, sleeping and doing some other things. Mmm….I had to be ready to start my work as usual. But I hadn't thought it would be an unusual day.

Though it had to be a sunny morning, it was still dark. It seemed as it was early morning. I looked out through the window. It was so cloudy. The blue sky had changed as dark. The clouds seemed that they had gathered to tell me 'good morning'. But the usual visitor, the sun hadn’t come to wish me. The clouds had taken the place instead. The street lights were already switched off. It was so dark everywhere. To describe it preciously, I named it as ‘A Gloomy Day’.

The clouds were yet to pour. It seemed that they were gathering for a war against the world. As it was very cool, I took hot bath. Taking hot bath, when the atmosphere is so cold, is very warming not just your body and also your mind. I had to be ready to go office within one hour. I took umbrella as extra protection though I had worn the rain coat. It was 8 o'clock by the time I left home.

People are on the way to their destinations. Some of them were heading their office like me. I had to go by bus. The bus stop was just five minutes walk from my home. After locking the house I started walking, the clouds joined with me. They were moving a little faster than me. When I stopped at the bus stop, they started crying. May be, they wanted me to walk with them. It didn't rain heavily, there was no thunder also. But I could imagine that it would be a disaster. When the rain pours slowly it means it would flood the city as the heavy rain sometimes stops within a few hours.

I was thinking that did I really want to go office. I had found no bus for long time. After sometime a bus was coming and I was ready to catch the bus. I couldn’t have spared that bus. It was so crowd. It didn’t stop. The time was almost 10 o’clock. I had no hope to go office and the cloudy atmosphere was threatening for a heavy rain. And there could be a chance that I would get wet and my returning home would be a terrible one. There would be no use of going office as I was already late by one hour. I had no option to excuse my boss. I hoped this cloud wouldn’t spare him as well.

I had a choice. I finally decided. The clouds accompanied with me on my way to home. By the time I reached home I couldn’t see any cloud. “Where the hell they have gone?” I lamented. They must have moved a little faster than me. They won this time as well. It was slowly brightening and the sun finally arrived. There was no sign of rain I could see again. The day went off so sunny. They must have planned it before. I lost one day’s loss of pay.
