Kripa wipes her tears but has mascara on cheeks. She couldn't
control her anger when she saw that picture it brought too many old
memories that she had buried deep within her heart and hoping she could
forget the past.
She took tissue paper and wiped the smeared mascara off her
cheeks and eyes and realized she had to go to the washroom. She enters
a stall and hears two other people walk in.
An: You're so lucky that you have Angad for a boyfriend… all I got is Manek.
M: Anitaah you also could have gotten Angad if you had a little bit
of patience. He would have noticed you in a few years and if you had
told me sooner, I probably would have broken up with him by now the
same way I did with Manek and Prithvi.
An: I guess it's just not my luck to get a cute and decent guy the first time.
Mishty and Anitaah laugh a little at the "joke".
An: Hey Mishty did you see the new girl in school today?
M: Anitaah you know that I don't tease girl freshmen I leave that
to Angad and his friends. I don't have to do anything all the guys go
crazy for me including the new boys. They're cute after a little while
but get to be boring.
Kripa comes out and goes to the sink, washes her hands quickly and
reapplies her eyeliner and mascara. Anitaah just stared at Kripa with
K:(thinking) Does everybody have a staring problem in this school. It's like they've never seen a new student before.
Kripa finishes quickly and starts opening the washroom door but
trips on the door stopper and was about to fall on her face when
someone caught her. She looked up to see who it was that stopped her
from falling. She stared into beautiful chocolate brown eyes of the guy
she saw this morning.
A: Are you all right?
K: (came out of her trance) Yes, I'm fine. Thank you for catching me.
A: No problem (staring)
K: Ummm…., can you please let me go now?
Angad's friends started yelling for him to come with them.
A: Oh! Yeah sure.
Angad let Kripa go and she started to walk away but she could feel
Angad staring at her from behind she started walking faster. She bumped
into Prithvi on the way and said sorry in a hurry.
P: Hey Manek! Was that girl on the list by any chance?
Ma: Some girl by the name of Kripa Sharma. So?
P: So…? Are you that dumb? That was the girl we couldn't get over
the summer because she wasn't in the area remember. So do you think we
should tell Angad, Shabbir, or Josh about it?
Ma: No. Not this time. They always get to have fun with girls for once we're going to have fun with this girl.
A: So guys what's up?
Prithvi and Manek turn around scared.
P: Nothing, nothing.
A: So why did you guys call me?
Ma: Oh Shabbir and Josh wanted to meet you at the front of the school they wanted to talk to you about something.
A: And they didn't want to talk to you two?
Ma: No just you.
P: Okay Angad we have to go now Manek let's go.
Prithvi and Manek walk away Angad just watches them go and turns around.
Kripa walks around the entire school and can't find a single corner
where there isn't a student. Every hallway is filled with excitement
and cheer for some odd reason. Kripa started to feel suffocated in
those hallways she walked into a hallway where on both sides there are
windows. On one side there was the light court where people can go and
sit there at lunchtime and on the other side there was a beautiful
garden. A garden filled with roses, tulips, carnations, shrubs, trees,
and a maze. Kripa was amazed by this garden and it calmed her heart and
put a smile on her face. She heard footsteps coming towards her and
turned to see two guys walking through the hallway. She turned back and
looked at the garden when someone pulled her away from the window.
Ma: So where have you been all summer sweetheart we've been waiting for you.
P: Hey why don't you give us a kiss because freshman has to do
something for the seniors when they come to the school so why not just
give us a small kiss?
Ma: Don't worry we won't bother you after this just come a little closer….
Kripa started to struggle and get free from their grasp but it was
no use! Finally Kripa managed to free one hand and slapped Manek across
Ma: Why you little bi***!
Manek pins Kripa to the wall and forcefully tries to kiss her!
*** What will happen now? Will she be able to get free?
Hope you guys enjoy this part!
