The Scent of Jasmine

jasmine flowers

Myra pinned the jasmine garland to her voluminous bun before getting onto the stage for her performance. An amazing fragrance of the flower filled the hall as she walked through the aisle. Sam, who was sitting on a seat next to the aisle, couldn’t help but turn his eyes towards Myra because he was really curious to know who emitted the amazing scent of jasmine. His eyes sparkled like never before after seeing Myra. 

Through the entire performance, Sam could barely take his eyes off Myra as he was mesmerised by her beauty. After the show ended, a thundering round of applause was given to appreciate the performers. Unable to resist himself, Sam visited the backstage to greet and compliment Myra for her scintillating performance. Sam was a bit diffident so he couldn’t really ask Myra out for a date. However, Myra, who was an extreme extrovert, invited Sam over to her place after the show as she was extremely impressed with his style of communicating.

Later that evening Myra’s house was warmed with the presence of her friends and of course Sam. It was a happy evening and both of them realised that they liked each other. Sam, who had a meticulous eye, got a clue that Myra loved jasmine. Every corner of her house was filled with jasmine flowers. He visited Myra a couple of days later with a unique jasmine bouquet. She was overjoyed and overwhelmed. Soon both were together and happy. He wrote beautiful poems for her and pampered her with her favourite flowers. Myra on the other hand always left Sam speechless with her beautiful and graceful dance moves. Both of them were grateful to each other and the scent of jasmine that had attracted Sam towards Myra.
