*Lazy gal’s Dusty blog *
Here comes my maiden short story. Call it cheesy or whatever, Kindly bear with me till the end of the post because I’m making my debut in this so called Short Stories Series.
And now Its STORYYYY Time :
I was getting ready for my second date. After a week’s konjals and kenjals, Nidhu finally said YES for a movie. By the way I’m Shridar and Nidharsana is my one and only girl friend literally and that too from CS, thanks to my mechanical department.
A li’l flashback :
*Rewind Rewind Rewind back to July 2011*
Nidhu and I were just friends initially, met through a common friend. After exchanging phone numbers we became best friends with all those talking for hours and this phenomenon continued for long. And one fine day after 9 months of her ‘BEST FRIENDS’ship and my ONE SIDE LOVE suffering, I couldn’t contain myself and blurted out “Nidhu, I’m in love with you”.
She didn’t turn pink or blush as I had expected. Instead she said “Yo’ll get a really nyce gal shri, definitely not me”. I was disappointed but I’m not the kind to give up. Even after my serial-proposals for more than 4 months, She kept singing the same old raga “Yo deserv a beta gal shri”.
I knew that she loved me and she is a timid girl and without doubts, she was hesitant to accept my proposal because of her family. For us, No Verbal Language was needed to communicate with, or understand each other’s feelings.
Obviously I had the charms and eventually our MECH-CS chemistry worked out. Our official commitment happened after one year and now here we are, gearing up for our second movie date.
Back to the D-Day :
With a little bit of Fair n Handsome and an extra dose of AXE effect, my MALE MAKEUP SESSION was over and I was ready for action. I had booked tickets for a morning show, as it was apt for her GOING-TO-VARSHA’S-HOME-TO-COPY-NOTES excuse to her strict mom.
I reached the destination earlier and was waiting for her. After 20 minutes of mobile-flipping, 3 packs of popcorn-munching, sight-seeing, seconds-counting she came.
<<Here, Kindly don’t imagine a slow motion scene with an Amala Paul like figure coming>>
She’s just an ordinary girl who is MY Amala Paul. She always has an aura of HURRY-BURRY-AT-THE LAST-MINUTE, so no time for those heroine entry scenes.
“SORRY Shri, soooooory da, It was this bus, No actually it was me and blah blah blah....”. I couldn’t hear anything after that because I was deeply engrossed in sighting her and I could sense the feeling of kissing her cropping up in my romantic head. I couldn’t help it, after all she was my girlfriend na?? not just any friend . But it was a damn movie theatre and it was a damn clear daytime.
“Shridar CONTROL CONTROL, Its just your second date not honeymoon” I was telling this to myself and with no further delay we entered the movie hall.
The movie started and after 3 hours BOOOOOOOOOM !! the movie just ended. Except exchanging coke and popcorn nothing really happened. Ya L I actually WATCHED the damn movie with my unconditionally loving yet unromantic GF L With each second dying, I’s suppressing my feelings throughout the movie.
<<Usually do lovers come to movie theatres to watch the movie?!?! I seriously doubt it >>
During the intermission I asked her “Do you like the movie?”. She nodded rapidly for more than 5 seconds that her earrings made dis DING DING DING noise. It was cute. I wanted to kiss her then.
She removed her hair band and stretched it with her lips to tie her hair again. I wanted to kiss her then.
She was humming my favourite song loud enough for me to hear during the walking around in the mall. I wanted to kiss her then.
“Nidhu, what if someone spots you here with me??” I asked naughtily. She smiled with a little scariness and shrugged at the same time. I wanted to kiss her then.
She was waiting in the busstop with me and was cracking her knuckles crazily. I wanted to kiss her then.
Finally the bus arrived and the very thing I had most wished for happened. THE BUS WAS EMPTY :P She was really nervous to sit beside me. Whenever accidentally our skins came into contact she became more nervous. She tried hard to maintain a gap between us and I was cursing the NH like roads in my mind. So Far No Good. <<sigh>>
Also I was not sure if Nidhu was ready for a kiss or not. What if I returned with a slapped cheek and more to worsen what if she was not really that comfortable with me, It was just our second date, miles to go.
Still I couldn’t wrap up her cuteness and my feelings. Just a peck on the cheek was my intention. I kept glancing at her from the side and she was actually auditing our movie expenses at the back of the bus ticket. <<Typical wife material>>
“OK Shridar, this is your last chance, just a quick little peck on the cheek” and then there she was, “Shri duffer, You paid an extra 50 at the cash counter” and BAAAAAANG !!, a peck on the cheek turned to a kiss on the lips and I didn’t let go of her for more than 5 seconds. She came to her senses and pushed me back. I could see that she was more than a li’l startled.
The last 15 minutes travel seemed like dead slow hell .She avoided looking at me and left without a bye to add to my embarrassment L. I was back at home and I banged my head on the wall and pillow with million thoughts colliding in my mind.
“I shouldn’t have even thought of kissing her in the first place” L
“What should I do now?” L
“How about establishing any alternative defense mechanism like it was just an accident Nidhu?”
“Should I go for any sentimental sequence or turn that into a comedy?”
“Let me call a spade a spade, Yes I wanted to kiss you, after all you’re my GF and in fact soon-to-be-wife”
“No, Let me make it up to her by any other means”
I was typing a message and was deleting the same, again typed a message and sent it to the drafts and the process continued. Was she really uncomfortable?? What if she decides to call it a day?? What if she stops talking with me??
She’s the only girl who matters in my life and I love her so much. Its difficult to put together what we shared in words. It was really stupid of me. How could I behave cheaply like that. She’s been my FANTASTIC HER always. My sweet NIDHU L
*BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP*
It was a message from nidhu. “Hey I fagot to ask yo, Hw waz ma new strawberry lipbalm?? :P :P :P”
