Setting: St.John's Library
The librarian looks up from her Time Magazine as laughter is heard from the left side of the library. She looks over but cannot make out the guilty party. She stands up and walks around her desk and starts following the loud laughter. She stops right in front of a boy whose face is contorted into a comical expression and directly across from him, a girl who is laughing uncontrollably and as a result is clutching her stomach.
Kripa looks towards the voice and suddenly stops laughing.
Kripa:Ms. Smith, I uh...actually...
Angad's comical expression is replaced with one of guilt.
Librarian: Kripa, why are you making so much noise? This is a library, if you have forgotten!
Kripa: Actually, ma'am I didnt mean to...I uh...
Angad: Actually, its not Kripa's fault at all Ms. Smith, I was annoying her actually. She told me to stop it, but I couldnt resist and my jokes got to her. Please ma'am, it isnt Kripa's fault.
Kripa looks at Angad, with a shocked, yet grateful expression.
Librarian: That is not an excuse Mister...
Angad: Angad Khanna
Libarian: ...Khanna! But Kripa, since it is your first warning, I will not punish you two. But do mind it that I never have to speak to both of you again about making too much noise in the library again!
Angad and Kripa: of course, Ms.Smith.
The elderly librarian hesitates but soon turns on her heels and heads for her desk again.
Angad: sorry Kripa, I got you into trouble.
Kripa: Angad, please! We were both equally guilty of being too loud in the library, but you took the whole blame on yourself, I have no words to thank you with Angad.
Angad sheepishly says: kam se kam, itna tho karsakta hoon. After all, youre notes are so good that Im sure I will ace that Professor Ganguli's class. Can you imagine her face when she sees that I am doing well, despite my contrary implications? Voh din tho bohot acha rahega!
Kripa: Meri dua hai ke tum chemistry aur tumhare sab clases ko pass karo, with flying colors! You are a good person Angad, and good things happen to good people. Thank you for taking the blame on yourself Angad even though...
Angad interrupts her: mujhe emberass math karo Kripa! If you can lend me your notes on the first day of classes, I can do this for you at the very least. Vaise bhi, Ganguli's ki chehre par jho shocked expression hoga na, voh sirf tumhare notes hi laenge. Changa kagi?
Kripa laughs and says: bilkul!
Angad grins from ear to ear and Kripa smiles warmly, her eyes twinkling.
Beep. The next class has started.
Angad and Kripa look up at the intercome, get up and both say at the same time: I need to go class now.
They both look at each other and laugh.
Angad: Bye Kripa, Ill see you tomorrow!
Kripa: Bye Angad
