It was the day of the dance and Kripa was waiting for Gaurav. She heard the door bell and went down to open it. It was Gaurav.
G- Hey Kripa
G- You look really pretty
K- Thanks, you look...umm..nice too
G- I know, thats what my mom told me
Kripa gave him a small smile and they headed out. Gaurav's dad was in the car waiting for them.
K- Hello, you must be Gaurav's dad
GD- Yes, and your Kripa
As they were driving to the dance Gaurav's dad was talking to Kripa.
GD- You never came to meet Gaurav's mom.
K- I thought Gaurav was joking
Gaurav- I wasn't, but I persuaded my mom you were a good girl
GD- Well I just want to go over some guidelines with you. Number one- Take care of Gaurav. Number 2- Make sure Gaurav uses the bathroom when he gets there. Number 3- Don't let him drink anything bad Number 4-
Kripa stopped listening after number 3. She felt like his baby sitter more than his date.
GD- And I'll come pick you guys up at 10
K- Umm okay
They finally reached the dance and Kripa felt relieved. As they went inside she spotted her friends. She also spotted Josh, Angad, and Rahul with their dates. Kripa went to a table nearby and took a seat as Gaurav followed.
Angad saw Kripa and couldn't believe how beautiful she looked. He wished they came to the dance together.
K- Umm Gaurav do you have to go to the bathrooom?
G- Yeah, thanks for reminding me, I'll be right back
Gaurav left and Maya came to Kripa's table.
M- Hey Kripa, having fun?
K- Of coarse
M- I'm sorry you had to come with Gaurav
K- No, don't be, he's a nice guy
M- Nice but he's so......whatever. Anyways, see you around
Gaurav came back and Kripa smiled to him. Kripa noticed Gaurav's gaze costantly fell on someone. She followed his gaze to a girl. She was a geekly looking girl with big glasses and she was also with a guy.
K- Who r u looking at?
G- Oh, no one
K- Come on tell me, who is she?
G- Ok, but dont get mad
K- I wont, now tell me
G- That's Jeeya, I like her, but she didn't ask me to the dance, I only said yes to you because I wanted to make her jealous.......sorry
K- It's okay. hey I got a plan.
Kripa whispered something in Gaurav's ear and Gaurav smiled.
Then you see Kripa and Gaurav dancing. They acted as if they were having fun.
Angad was shocked seeing Kripa so "happy".
A-thinking- Fine, if she can have fun, then so can I!
Angad and Mishty then started dancing.
Kripa saw Angad but tried ignorning him.
G- Is it working?
K- Hey shes looking over here!
Jeeya approached Gaurav and said
G- Hi Jeeya
J- Umm...I didnt know you were coming to the dance
G- Yeah I was. So how are you and your boyfriend doing?
J- Oh Kunal, he's not my boyfriend, hes just a friend.
G- Hey, umm do you want to dance?
J- I thought you had a date
G- Oh Kripa, no we're just friends too
Gaurav and Jeeya went and started dancing. Gaurav lipped a thanks to Kripa. Kripa nodded.
Angad noticed Gaurav dancing with someone else. He tried finding Kripa but didnt see her. He finally noticed her leaving through the doors.
A- Hey Mishty, I gotta go
M- What! You cant leave yet!
Angad left a angry Mishty and followed Kripa out the doors. He saw her walking home on the sidewalk.
A- Hey wait up!
Kripa turned around and saw Angad. She was shocked.
K- What r u doing here?
A- I have to talk to you
K- About what? We have nothing to talk about
A- Why'd you leave the party?
K- I was bored
A- What about Gaurav?
K- He's with a girl he likes, so its all good, but wait....why did you leave?
A- I wasnt having much fun either
K- Really, I thought with Mishty you would be having a ball
A- What's your problem?
K- Your my problem?
K- Yeah, I can never understand you! I mean first we kiss and you never even once bothered to talk to me about the kiss-like it didnt even mean anything to you, then when I think you like me, I hear you saying you'll go to the dance with the first girl who'll ask you, meaning you dont care if that girl is me or if its any other girl!
A- Okay, first of all I thought you didnt want to talk about the kiss thats why I didnt, secondly, I said all that stuff about the first girl that asks me I'll go with her, because I wanted you to be that first girl, I wanted to go to the dance with you, but then you go with Gaurav!
K- That's because I thought you would say yes to Mishty
A- I only said yes to her because I was mad at you for asking Gaurav to go
A- And for the record, I do like you!
K- Fine! I like you too!
Angad and Kripa both smiled at each other and started cracking up. They both leaned in and it happened, they kissed. This time both of then were in full sense of what was happening. To both of them everything felt so right, maybe because it was.
I hope you liked it!
