Person of 2014
“So, who is the most interesting person you have met this year?” asked the woman named Kady. She was speaking with someone on the subway named Aklan, a person of religion from India. Aklan had said, “It is nice meeting you – I am thinking to look up your writings, someday. You are the most interesting person that I have met on this day.”
“Oh, I already know a great many interesting people,” said Aklan, “I sell gold with my husband. We import metal and jewels from India, and we cater to some interesting people, indeed.” “Are these people really wealthy?” asked Kady. “I should hope so; we do stay in business, somehow,” answered Aklan, “I am trying to decide on the most interesting one.”
Kady looked at her watch; the ride would not be over for another twenty minutes or so. “I think the most interesting person was a young woman,” said Aklan, “She came in and bought a rare sapphire bracelet with the saying ‘Forever Love’ engraved on the outside. ‘Nice choice’ I said. She said it was for her girlfriend.” “Oh,” said Kady. “I am not really like that,” said Aklan, “However I found it ‘interesting’ enough.” The two finished their ride mostly in silence.
