he: hey hi

Kabir walked into dimly lit room,.with a bright orange and yellow cloth lampshade, a bed with the worlds most colorful bedsheet he had ever seen (its so feminine) thats what he said, as he decided to sit either on the bed or the pink bean bag..he chose the later. He looked around the room,neatly kept with a small stack of books on a bamboo shelf,pink and blue net curtains,a footrug at the bedfront saying "wake up sunshine: in yellow and red. Not far away was Waio,which was playing some kind of piano music(so unlike her) he thought. a tiny TV on a wooden trunk sat in one corner,switched off and covered with white lace. Adjoining the drawing room was the kitchen,which he could make out from the beaded purple curtains also housed her cupboard,painted in white and with lots of graphiti on it. He glued his eyes to the Red Bull fridge in the kitchen with the glass door and blue neon lights inside,which glowed as she bent and opened it to take out soemthing..a can of coke. Adjoining the kitchen was the door to the loo perhaps which eh heard slam open and close as she ran in to change.
Anushua was having trouble inside,her heart was beating too loud and her smile was giving away all the excitement which she dint want to flaunt to Kabir the first time itself. She picked up the mid rib jeans(no low waist with this guy at least) and a decent black top,with a decent neckline.she looked at herself in the mirror and said "decent" dabbed a little lip gloss(umm the mango one would smell nice) a little kajal and brushed her hair. Sprayed some davidoff on her top and also the hair.
She took a can of coke and walked out of the kitchen to where he was sitting(mentally made a note to pull his leg on the pink bean bag) and took the house keys
he:ready? so fast
she: i took 13 minutes exactly, and you say thats fast..must say your patience level impresses me
he:reaally?i thought i am the one who has little patience considering i called you..
she:*smiles* chalo lets go
As they walked down the stairs to the parking,she kept saying to herself *this is too good to be true this is too good to be true*
He thought *hmmm where do i drive her now? i have to stop at teh ATM,was there an HDFC ATM on the way here*?
she: so where are we going?
he:ummm..actually to an ATM..*fuck absolutely the wrng thing to say to a girl*
she:ohhkkk ..there is no HDFC ATM here
he:There is one next to my building (smiles)
she: we are going to Vashi (smiles)
As she sat in the car she smiled*i am in the aquafina guys car..omg this is crazy*
As the dawn set in,the car drove down the empty roads of new mumbai,and the Dure Straits sang "Romeo and Juliet"
she: uhh which song is this
he: you got to be kidding em??you dont know this one
she:nayeee so what..do you know The Corrs or Shania Twain or..
He: yeah i have heard of some, by the way if you have not heard the Dire Straits then great is hall educate you on music.
She:hmmm..i will educate you on...on..we'll see
As he parked his car in front of the ATM she looked at herself in the mirror,her kajal had not smudged yet,she took out the gloss and dabbed it quickly before he saw her doin it.
He came out of the ATM and she peeped at him,between the strands of her hair*ohh shit his smile is soo cute*
He: hey you wanna go out for coffee?? there is this tapri( a road side tea shop in Mumbai is called Tapri) which opens at 7 ,another 2 hours ..till then we can..umm...you can come home if you are ok
Now this was a super tricky question sayinga yes would mean "easily available" saying a no would eman waiting another weak for this opportunity on next weekend
she:sure..chalo *smiles and crosses her fingers*
As she got inside the lift with Kabir next to her,the closeness struck her with such an enormity that she wanted to run out and go home to her cup of maggi. But here was a bigger force pulling her, she was scared,she knew where this was heading,it looked familiar. The last time she was in love,she was too busy hearing the sound o her heart breaking to know which month of the year it was. She dint want it to happen this time and anywyas Kabir was too good to eb true..there had to be a star amrk somewhere with tiny footnote saying"engaged,gay,just friends"
he: my house aint as clean as yours okie..so dont kind*damn what a lame thing to tell a girl*
As she walked in the house teh first thing she saw was
A hugeeee TV on a three legged table(oiginaly meant to have 4 legs)
a huge shoe stand
a bamboo stool
a photo frame
As kabir ran around the house, he switched on the AC in the other room*her alarm bells rang once* her eyes darted towards the bedroom,which had one floor bed,with a clean bedsheet and two pillows...they were maroon*hehehe maroon bedsheets in the AVP's bed*
As she sat on the bed on the floor,with her back resting on the wall,he sat opposite on the bamboo stool with his legs stretched out*clean feet* she thought
He: so dont you miss your parents
As she went on telling him about her house,her parents,her wish of having a black Labrador,her friends and how she was a president level guide and knew how to knot in 12 different styles, he was mazed by her. He could not fathom which was the girl he liked this scatter brain who kept talking and ensured his smile stayed on his face,or the girl who kept her eyes on him and eyes him as though she would devour him(he liked the sound of the latter though)
And she stopped talking, as he bent down and held her face in his palm and kissed her gently. She closed her eyes and without letting her mind stop her she felt his lips on hers. As his hand gripped hers tightly she felt his fingers running through her hair. He was taken aback by the subtle and wild outburst of emotions he had but all that he felt was her bitting on his lips..she stumbled and lied on the bed as he felt her shaking body under him.
