"Nupur, what happened? why is your face growing pale... Is everything fine sweetheart?" sneha asked as we reached the party entrance... what am i doing here? For heaven's sake its 'HER' alumini meet.... not mine!!! "di, anything wrong? Just today i reached your place and now i am in this party... where i don't even know anyone!! Obviously i am nervous... even my 'chudidaar' is looking odd one in this glamour filled mumbai party!" I spoke my heart out to her and then i realised we have already reached the party hall. "hahahaha... Oh my sweet, little, adorabale darling.... Is this bothering you? Then just take my words.... You are looking like an angel in this white chudidaar... And remember i am with you... Always" she said with her sweetest smile. I just smiled and we walked further. I noticed her eyes were searching for someone and then they stopped. I followed the direction of her eyes and saw 2 guys standing at a distance. They started walking towards us with a huge smile on their faces. I became alert, it has never been easy for me to stay calm when i had to face opposite sex. Sneha replied them with a smile. The two guys were... No doubt.. good looking. One of them wearing black shirt with black trousers and... Really Cute dimples!.. Other one wearing t-shirt of some light shade of blue with denim pants. "hellooo nupur!!! Come back from your dreamland.." sneha said waving her hand in front of my eyes. "what?... Umm.. Nothing di.. I was just..." her voice brought me back to senses and i saw the same two guys standing in front of me.. Yeah! Wearing the same smiles.. Did i just messed up? Oh no! "Hi! I am mayank" the guy in black said with his hand stretched towards me. "umm.. Hi, i am nupur" i took his hand hesitatingly. "yeah! I know you.. Sneha told me that you're coming here" he answered with a smirk. I grew cautious. "Hey nupur! I am ankit.. Sneha's old classmate.. Right Sneha?" the guy in blue said with his eyes on sneha. "yupp!" sneha answered. Was it polite? I wondered as i saw her smile fading away. "Lets go and sit!" the guy in black.. Mayank suggested. We walked to a sitting area and settled down on a round table... I was terrified more than the day i had my final examination. "Hey! Its so boring like this.. Lets play 'truth or dare' it'll be fun... What say?" ankit cracked the prevailing silence. Did he noticed me playing with hem of my dupatta? Or wat? "umm... I need to meet my old friends.. I'll be back soon.." sneha started to get up. She looked bit scared or that was what i felt. Ankit held her arm and i could see the surprise in her eyes. "we are meeting after 7 years.. Plz don't spoil the mood.. You can meet them later too" ankit said with pleading eyes. "But... Ok.. Start the game" sneha said getting back to seat. "mayank! You spin the bottle" ankit said. Mayank spin the bottle and it stopped on sneha. "truth or dare?" ankit asked her with a grin. "I believe in actions... So dare" "ok... Go bring me a glass of water" "WHAT!!!!" we all were shocked as ankit said that "yeah! You heard right... Bring-me-a-glass-of-water... C'mon do it fast.. I am thirsty" "ok!!!! His-royal-highness... Sneha at your service" Di brought a glass of water and banged it on table in front of ankit. I was trying hard to stop my laughter. "These waitresses are becoming so arrogant!!!" ankit teased her again. Sneha spin the bottle again... This time 'sheep-to-slaughter' was ankit. "ok! So mr. Ankit.. Truth or dare?" mayank asked "sach... Sirf sach" "ok! So... Its like rapid fire.. As soon as i say a word you'll say the first thing that comes to your mind.. There will be 5 questions.. Ready?" "yupp!" "umm.. Friend?" "you" "boring?" "college" "school?" "masti!!!" "priya?" "Cute" "love?" "sneha" Everyone on the table was like 'what!'. Di's eyes were like glued on ankit and her eyes wide open.
I could see the blush and awkwardness on ankit's face. How couldn't i ever see he loved sneha? We lived together but always avoided talking about her. Even sneha's face had lost its colour. Her eyes told the story of her confusion and surprise. "NO!!... I mean yes... Sneha, we need to talk" ankit said almost lost. "yeah.... Sure!..." Sneha's situation was much visible now. They both left from there and walked towards garden. I am so happy that this happened.
Di and ankit left from table leaving me behind with this 'man in black'. What should i do? Shall i make an excuse and hide in washroom? "Nupur, shall i bring something for you to eat?" he finally broke the silence... "Ahh.. No, i don't want to" "They look so good together... What do you think?" "oh!... Maybe..." "So.. You came just today.. Right?.." "yeah.." "what are your plans in mumbai?" "I have graduation in journalism.. Will try to join any newspaper or periodicals" "Oh! Great... What are you interested in? Writing about crime, sports, page3 people..?" "Nothing specific.. I am comfortable with everything" Everything but not in talking to a stranger.. Who is not actually stranger. "umm.. Friends?" he asked with his hand held out to me. Did i took too much time to reply?? "My friends say i am a good friend" he smirked "umm.. Yeah sure.. Friends!!" "so my new friend.. Lets go and eat something till they return.. I am really hungry" "ok..." We headed towards food counter. **************************************************************************************************
