if you are visiting my blog for the first time ,please read aquafina guy first,bong chic second,and then this part to enjoy"
Anushua was sitting in front of the tv at home,watching something about Paris Hiltons latest video on CNN..she wondered how could such stuff be even publicised when its so clearly a manipulated video of some look alike porn star(no she dint mean that paris is a porn star)
"come my lady come come my lady,you're my butterfly sugah baby" her phone rang and she looked whos calling at 9 in the morning..the name flashed "aquafina guy" she looked at the mobile for half a second if it was true..aquafina guy was calling on her number..she had got his cell number from the intranet but how did he..hers was not listed yet..and suddenly it stopped ringing..missed call?
she went to her call register and checked if it was,what it was..and yes it was his number in her log of calls..aquafina guy.9820391787!!!!
how??and why only a missed call??
she pinched herself,to see if it was real..how the fuck did he get her number??which means he was equally interested now:) :)
she waited for the phone to ring again..it did ,but it was her mom checking if she had got back home and if she was sleeping..her first job being a mortgage officer in the US market,meant night shifts,which she hated,till the day she saw him..and since then office was the best part and the canteen was even more important.
as she thought of all this she dozed off with the TV on and when she woke it was 3 in the noon.she checked her phone for the nth time to check if kabir had called..he hadnt..somehow,refering to him as kabir sounded funny..he was laways refered to as the aquafina guy ,but now since he had made a move,he should be known by his name.Somehow she found all these north indian names very cliched,rahul,kabir,sanjay neha,puja should be banned, and parents should be sued for lack of creativity if they name their children by the above.
It was 6 in the evening and by now she was getting impatient,should she call,maybe he would think she is rude by not calling back,no but she should not,he had just given a missed call,it would look too desperate,ohh damn what if he was married so could not call back cuz his wife was around(anushua had considered this option too,because of which she had not made any move)
Damn it..all the nice men on this earth are taken,married or gay.
She finished her weekly grocery,making sure every 5 minutes her battery was on and had complete network..but no..no call or msg
as she put the eggs in the fridge,she stopped,took her phone and stood near the window.
she looked into the phone.."dialing aquafina guy"
it rang around 5 times before it was answered, "hello" and her heart skipped a beat.that precise moment she regreted making the call,for fear of loosing her speech.
she: hi..uummm i got a missed call in the morning from this number
he:heyii hi..anushua,its me kabir
she:kabir..??(damn i am sure he could hear her ckeeks stretch even as she pretended to play innocent)
he: kabir from office.
she:ohh kabeerrr..the aquafina guy
he:"aquafina guy" nice point of reference
she:yeah..actually i was not so sure of your name..there are two kabir's listed in the intranet,one was kapoor and one was agnihotri, so i wasnt sure which one was you.
he:oh so you had my name,you looked it up in the intranet?
she :(fucckkk) ummm yeah
he:i see..ummm can we talk or you busy
she:(tricky question,needs to be handled with finesse) ohh nahe nahee i just finished cookung ,i can talk
he:you stay alone?
she:yeah..i stay in Vashi ,my parents stay in jamshedpur..where do you stay?
and they spoke for a long time on the phone..long long time,while she ate her maggi,he drove to the ATM withdrew cash packed dinner,she did her dishes while he was on the handsfree,he drove back home and she spoke to him as he opened the lock to his house.She made her bed got inside the blanket,put the phone on charge ,while he kept telling her how sad the noodles was he was eating..and suddenly
he: hey its 3 in the morning..you must be sleepy?i am sorry i kept you up so late
she:its okie,i am glad we finally spoke,beyond the looks we have exchanged, m not sleepy either.
he:i think i will go for a drive to pick up a smoke..i am out of them
and they spoke as he drove along the empty mumbai streets at 3 in the morning,and she kept telling him how she missed pune..and this weekend she was sulking in mumbai cuz her roomies in pune had exams,so no partying.he was surprised to know she partied,dint look the types,while she exclaimed at knowing he likes listening to rock..he dint seem likes the types to head bang :)
he:heyii which floor do you stay on?
he:nothing ya..how many roomies do you have?
she:i stay alone..i am pretty tough to put up with..explains why i am the only child..
suddenly she heard the bell ring..
she:aree itni rata kaun aya?
he:were you expecting someone..be careful when you open the door.
and she stopped talking as she opened the door,kabir stood outside in his black addidas tracks,a grey t-shirt and the cutest grin on the face,with his tiny canine showing on the left side.
