Friends are a blessing ,and its almost impossible to get a best friend in your life but whatever this following story predits is real enough and i got a good friend at my first day to a Public Library.

Well it was a beautiful summer morning ,the sun was shining as usual and i had a little sweat at my forehead before i was just gonna park my motor bike at the parking area opposite to the British council Library-ganga raam hospital ,Lahore.
I had to have some security checks before entering the Main door of the library.Though it was my first day but i cud understand the expressions on the faces of security guys over there.Soon i was at the main door.I entered and straight away went to the information counter to get the registration and stuff.I filled up the forms,paid the cashier got my card and entered the main room to have a look at the books stored.
Well it was my fist day at a public library,i was feeling good watching those numerous books in order.I seen some blonde girls over there roaming around like humming birds which was a bit unusual for me.I took just five minutes after reading an article on calf love from a magazine and went up in the ELT resource center.There i seen people equipped with microphones on their heads talking to the walls.It was really strange.Before any boredom thought cud hit my mind i got an idea to get a book and a fine place to sit and read.
I seen many couples occupying the tables and i was quite sure that their was gonna be no place for me to stretch my legs.It seemed my plan went up in smokes as it appeared to be a dating rendezvous rather than a library.
Then i observed a table where a person had his head down lost in some magazine or something,luckily the chair opposite to him was empty.But as soon as i was about to sit in,a shivering voice smacked my ears"Excuse me ,it is reserved" i just looked at the face of the gentleman,he was a thin and feeble guy and i saw continuous water running from his eyes.I thought he's weeping but he was not.I looked into his eyes and said"there's just no place empty for me and this is ma first day ,sorry to interrupt you".It seemed like he had some feelings of pity or something at that particular moment so he just honoured me to sit in there for a while until his date arrives.I thanked him and started reading the book.He uttered a few words asking me something that relates to a brief introduction of a person.First of all he was surprised to listen my name and shook his hand in pleasure of telling me he was of the same cast.Oh Yeah! i was also happy that his name starts from"rana".Well it did not take more than five minutes that an unshaped,dull,wheatish colour lady arrived and whispered something in his ears.He was quite happy seeing her face like a hungry cat mows after getting its dinner.I knew wot i had to do,i stood up and said"it was nice meeting you Rana Raza,see ya bye"he replied"i m regular here you can see me tomorrow".Well that was enough for the first day i just decided to go back home and relax so i left the library after 2 minutes.
