Chapter One - Welcome To The Neighborhood
The day was over and the weekend had begun. The girls went to their lockers and put some stuff away and then headed out. It was a beautiful spring day and the sun was shining brightly. The girls had just stepped out and were walking towards Khushi's car, when they heard Trishna.
"Seriously," Trishna squeaked.
"Yes," Lavanya exclaimed.
"Are you two still talking about the mansion people," Karan asked, tilting his glasses down and looking at them.
"Yeah," Trishna said with some attitude.
"They're just newbies," Arjun said.
"Whatever," Lavanya said, rolling her eyes. "Anyways, James went out during lunch and said a moving truck was at the mansion!"
"No way," Trishna gasped.
The two kept going back and forth with their "yes!" and "no!". Khushi and Madhu rolled their eyes and went into Khushi's car and put their bags down.
"You thinking what I'm thinking," Khushi asked.
"Let's go," Madhu smiled.
Khushi drove up to Maxton Hill, where the mansion lied (it was the only building there and all of Maxton Hill was property of the mansion). The puff-puff's (that's what they called Lavanya and Trishna) were right. There were two moving trucks and furniture was being brought out of both. The girls were standing at the gate and Khushi looked at Madhu.
"Let's sneak in," Khushi said.
Madhu looked at the workers for a minute and then at Khushi. "Let's go," and she quickly ran behind a bush.
"Madhu! Wait for me," Khushi whispered and went behind Madhu.
The two looked over the bush, their eyes only peering out. The workers had gone inside to get an antique wardrobe inside.
"Damn," Madhu said. "That looks really old."
"You mean really, really old."
All the workers disappeared inside and the girls looked around.
"Khushi, let's look around."
"Pagal hogaya kya?"
"Come on! We made it this far! Let's go."
"I don't know Madhu-"
Someone came out from the house. It was a worker and he went into the truck. He stood there and looked around and then got a chair, that looked pretty antique, and headed inside.
"What if we get caught," Khushi asked.
"Simple, we say "welcome to the neighborhood"."
Khushi looked at Madhu and Madhu looked side to side.
"What," Madhu asked innocently.
"Nothing. Let's just go," and she got up.
Both crept behind bushes and headed towards the back. No one noticed, since everyone was inside. The windows, that went from floor to ceiling on each floor were covered with huge curtains that were a velvet red.
Weird, both thought.
The girls ended up heading towards the backyard. They were still going until they heard someone.
"Yes! Too bad Arnav!"
The girls froze. The voices were of two guys. The girls looked at each other.
"I think so," Madhu said.
"Let's go see," and Madhu nodded in agreement.
They crept over and saw two guys, that looked their age, playing basketball. One of the guys made a shot and the other turned away.
"Yes," the guy shouted, that made the basket. "See Arnav, today's just not your day."
"Shut up RK!"
The other guy just laughed and the second guy stole the ball from him and shot it up in the air and made it in.
"Yo Arnav! That's not fair!"
"I said that a while ago and what did you say? "Oh well." So same goes to you too."
"Whatever, let's just play."
The boys continued to play and the girls just gazed. There was just something about them and the girls were captivated. For some reason, it smelled like chocolates and roses to them.
The boys stopped and turned and the girls snapped out of it and looked. A man came out and he looked pretty creepy.
"What now Bittoji," RK asked.
"Your classes are back in session."
Arnav dribbled the ball. "Great!" He tossed the ball to RK. "I'll get you later."
"Sure. Even though I'm beating you by 7 points."
"So what? I'll get you."
RK threw the ball and the ball bounced around. The ball hit the fence and then went bouncing around and went straight to where Khushi and Madhu were. The girls weren't even paying attention, still captivated by the smell, that they snapped back to reality when the ball bounced right next to Madhu and the girls screamed.
Arnav, RK, and Bittoji looked at their way and saw them. The girls were standing up and their eyes were wide as Arnav and RK looked at them. Khushi and Madhu looked at each other and then ran for it.
Khushi and Madhu ran out and went down the driveway, not even caring who else saw them now, since people already knew they were there. Rishabh and Arnav ran out to the driveway and saw the girls run. The girls just ran for it and ran down the long driveway and got to the gate. They caught their breath and then looked back at the boys.
They were handsome, no doubt, and just looking at them made their hearts beat really fast.
Weird, both thought.
The boys just looked at them and so did the girls.
"Arnav! Rishabh," Bittoji called out.
The four snapped out if and turned to where Bittoji's voice was coming from. Then the boys looked back at the girls and a few moments later, the girls looked at the boys.
"What do we do," Khushi said through her teeth.
"Remember," Madhu asked through her teeth.
Khushi looked at Madhu and she looked back. The two smirked and then looked at the boys.
"WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD," both yelled out, and then ran for it.
