When Wishes Come True.
This goes back to where I had left my previous star studded story on a whimsical note saying that one day I’d meet my celebrity crush for real. Boy, who ever gave a serious thought that wishes could come true if you wished for it real hard?
I’d seen him from afar during an event, but it was then I felt that I didn’t really want to meet him in that manner and just be one among those dozens of crazy fans screaming for attention. If I ever got to meet him I wanted it to be a special, or at least the type of meeting where I’d bump into him at some place. Not one of those types of meetings where you had to wait for hours among the herd of fans just to get a glimpse of your favourite actor, with every other security person treating you like a ‘no one’. So I decided that if I wanted to meet him, I’m not ever going to another event to chance upon him.
Month’s went by and then there came that day where I stumbled upon a contest that promised to give goodies and a chance to meet my favorite star. That seemed like a real great opportunity to meet him! But things kept coming in between and I was in two minds of whether I should take part in it. It was only on the last day of the contest that I decided to give it a try and went about fulfilling the formalities. There was a part of me that felt I could be one of those winners, but I didn’t have the slightest hint that I was indeed going to be one of them!
It was just another lazy Sunday afternoon when suddenly I saw an Instagram notification pop up on my phone. It said that the organisers of the contest had mentioned me in their story. To my surprise I saw something that part of me wished to happen. I jumped with joy! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Now I was a few steps closer to getting my wish of meeting him fulfilled. Things went crazy that day, with his fan clubs mentioning about my win and a dozen people following my account. I was getting all sorts of weird requests from unknown people, that I as the winner, could fulfill on meeting him. Of course things didn’t materialize so quickly, there was quite a wait.
I got some vouchers sent to me and so in the meantime I did some shopping at their outlet. But all the while the three of us who won just kept thinking about the day we would meet him. We kept asking the organizers about the event and each time we got the same response, that we would get to meet him when he was free. That day finally came after four months. The delay was worth the wait though. It was a delight to go to a place you’ve never been before and talk to people you’ve never met. Then see your favourite actor do a shoot in front of your eyes, shake hands with him, click pictures and chat with him like he was your friend! He seemed to be such a down to earth and sweet person. He made us feel so comfortable and we did not feel a bit like he was superior to us. He was just like one of us, who followed his passion and now is living his dreams.
