Guys, the intro is up before I wrote this, check that first! Thanks!
Second year of undergraduate college. First day. College: St.John's University
At Kripa's House
All is dark outside the two-story flat the Sharmas live in. The moon has yet to give way to the morning sun. The wind threatens to blow everything away. But inside the Sharma flat, all is warm and bright. Kripa's mom is getting ready for work and as usual is running late.
Kripa's Mom: are, mujhe phirse late nay hona. Ok ok, lets see, my bag is here, now where is my coat?
She frantically searches the living room closet
Suddenly someone taps her shoulder.
Kripa: mom, kya aap isko dundre thi?
We see a beautiful girl dressed in simple jeans and pale pink kurta with black shoulder length hair and intense green eyes holding out a dark brown coat.
Kripa's Mom: oh! tho tumare paas tha! Thanks betha, I was going to be late again. I dont know what I'd do without you!
She gives Kripa a warm smile.
Kripa: I know mom
Kripa's mom: ok i should go, I dont want to be late and have you find my coat for nothing! and oh! dont forget to wake up your dad and your sister and hmm, yeah thats it. Ill be late today, so dont wait up betha. Ok let me go now...bye Kripa
She turns to leave, but she suddenly stops and turns around and sees Kripa grinning at her.
Kripa's mom: why do I feel like Im forgetting something...
Kripa comes towards her mother and bows down and takes her blessings.
Kripa: aaj pehle din ka college hai mom
Kripa's mom: omg, phirse bulgayi! Come here mera acha bacha!
And with that she hugs Kripa tightly and whispers "my blessings are always with you"
Kripa: thats all I need meri pyaari si mom. Ok now go, varna, youll really be late.
Kripa's mom: oh! right! bye betha!
She quicky leaves.
Kripa: bye mom
kripa: hmm, lets go wake the sleepyheads...
Meanwhile, at Angad's House
The smell of hot parathas fill the Khanna house. Angad's dad and sister are at the breakfast table awaiting the parathas Angad's mother is cooking.
Angad's father: How much longer ji? Mein tho bukh ke mara paagal hogaya
Angad's father winks at Aditi and Aditi laughs.
Suddenly Angad rushes into the dining room, with one shoe on, his shirt half tucked in, and messy uncombed hair.
Aditi: hey bhai! kya look hai. Aaj tho aap ki pithaye zaroor hogi.
Angad: aaj nai Aditi, mein phirse late honewala hoon. I thought new school year new me...lekin...
Angad's dad: no problem betha, you can sleep all day, I mean what is college really good for?
Aditi and Angad's dad start laughing hard.
Angad's mother walks in with a steaming plate of parathas.
Angad's mother: Angad, what happened to you?
Angad: kuch nay, mein baas...*he puts on his shoe*...dont want to be late...got to go...
He quickly tucks in his shirt, rushes to his mom, grabs a paratha, kisses her, goes to his sis and pulls her braid and with a final "bye dad" rushes out.
