Love has its own language. The language which connects two souls together just the way it connected him with her.
Things were new for him amidst a new workplace. He was trying to find his feet and moreover a companion in the midst of a monotonous desk job. His eyes always kept looking for someone, someone who would talk to him. But between the excel reports and the uninteresting board meetings, he was a lonely soul. From the frozen food dinners to the jokes at the boardroom, he was living a life contrary to what his parents had expected.
He was lost in the crowd and even though he was swarmed by innumerable people at work or travel, he didn’t have one soul who he could pour his heart out to. Seeing couples make love, enjoying together created a sense of need in him – The need of a companion whom he could talk to.
Perhaps he found that companion that day. Taking opportunities to glance at her through his window, he was trying to shy away when they made eye contact but he couldn’t help but look at her. Struggling and fumbling, Stacey and Jason finally knew each other. Using placards to talk across the window; Jason had a spring in his step and finally felt alive. Little notes of their everyday placard conversations found a place on Jason’s fridge and reiterating them at the end of the day made him smile. His desk job and board meetings were not the same anymore, and Jason was lost again but this time in Stacey.
Jason became himself and Stacey were the sole reason for all this. But there was a fire in even Stacey’s heart as she edged out her secret of watching Jason before he did. Jason, lost for words, was recollecting his guts to ask Stacey out. Just as he thought he would, she was not there in his sight anymore. Perhaps that’s how life is; it makes us realize that we should not stop ourselves from telling others how much we love them. After all, it’s all in a moment.
Jason was back to his old self; he sulked after Stacey was not in her desk anymore, and he regretted not asking her out. But life gave him a new window. As playful as Stacey was, she caught Jason’s attention in her peculiar way from the window above and they celebrated her promotion as Jason finally asked her out only to realize that she had been waiting for Jason too long.
‘Signs’ makes us realize that love has its own language and it’s not necessarily spoken but felt.
