Setting: St. John's hallways.
The neat handwritting on the 8 by 11 sheets of paper was incredible. The neatly spaced, greatly organized chemsitry notes were unmistakably detailed and seemed to promise passing any chemistry test with flying colors.
Angad: mera lucky din hai, aside from meri grand entry. Not bad Angad, not bad at all.
He smiled as he put away Kripa's notes in his schoolbag, when somone shoved him from behind.
Josh: hey brother! I was looking for you dude, kaha the?!
Josh and Angad high-fived each other.
Angad: Josh! Brother, kaha phas gaya! My chemistry teachers apparantly hates me, stupid traffic yaar...you know NY traffic its-
Josh- Angad, if I remember correctly, tum school ke pehle din ke liye kabhi jaldi nay aye, right?
Angad: well, I mean, I could have changed right!
Josh: did you?
Angad sheepishly says: n..o...
Josh laughes hard and playfully pats Angad on the back.
Josh: maybe next year...
Josh: yeah right!!!
Josh starts running from Angad and Angad runs after him. Their shoes hit the cement floor hard as laughter echoes throughout the empty hallway and resounds of their deep freindship.
On the school grounds:
The sun was now out. It was bright and sunny and no longer as cold as it had been. Kripa sat on the bench, taking in the sunlight. She only wished she didnt have to wait two hours for her next class. Aliya was not even here with her; Aliya had literature right now.
Kripa (thinking to herself): kya kare? kya kare? Hmm, maybe I should go to the library? Heyy! maybe they have the new Jhumpa Lahiri novel. Yes, mein yehi karti hoon!
Kripa got up with a new surge of energy. Jhumpa Lahirii was among her favorite authors and she had her every book. She couldnt wait to see if the library had her new novel. She could hardly contain her excitement as she ran up the stairs to the 2nd floor library.
Josh: ok ok mere baap, Im sorry!
Angad, holding onto his ear, says: yeh hui na baath!
Angad lets go and Josh grins at him.
Josh: tum bhi naa! Vaise, dont you have class now?
Angad: class? no, not for another hour and half. Look at my luck brother, subha subha ek class, and after that two hours before the next! Kaise musibat hai yeh...
Josh laughs: Angad, chill man. Anyway, I need to go, I volunteered to help out Mr. Sankara with the physics lab.
Angad: why yaar?
Josh: if I want to pass physics, yeh saab karna parta hai
Angad: mein sirf late hoon, lekin tum ek number ka kaam-chore ho!
Angad and Josh laugh hard and finally with a final playful punch on the arm, Josh takes Angad's leave.
Angad watches Josh run down the stairs and wonders what great deed he must have done in his previous life to deserves such a rocking friend like Josh. As far as Angad can remember, Josh was always there by his side, despite the fact that Angad was a year younger than him.
Angad says to no one: Josh, kuch bhi kaho, tum tho mera saabse acha dost ho.
With that he smiles and turns to leave the opposite way.
