"That was fun," Khushi said, completely breathless.
"No... joke," Madhu said in between breaths. "But... why did we... do that?"
"I... dunno. ... just for... the... heck of it?"
Madhu shook her head and they changed out of their clothes and headed down to lunch.
The rest of the day was boring and on Sunday, Khushi went home. Sunday was boring as well and the girls got their homework done. On Monday, when they all got back to school, their boring lives resumed... or so they thought.
At school, everyone was buzzing about the two new boys who moved into the mansion. All topics were replaced by the two new boys and Khushi and Madhu didn't say a thing.
At lunch, the puff-puff's were talking about Arnav and RK, while Karan and Arjun were being jealous. It was nice for a change to see those two jealous since everyone else in town was all over Karan and Arjun.
"Miss Gupta and Miss Malik!"
The whole school body turned and looked at Principal Mehra.
"Busted," everyone whispered.
With the Principal was the creepy guy from the other day when Khushi and Madhu had snuck to the mansion. The girls gulped their confidence as the Principal and Creepy Guy came their way.
"Miss Gupta and Miss Malik, Bittoji here would like to talk to you," Principal Mehra said, gesturing at Creepy Guy.
Oh yeah, both said in their head. That's his name.
Bittoji went over to the two. "May I talk to you two for a moment?"
They walked over to the side and Khushi and Madhu were terrified.
"I have invitations for you two," Bittoji said.
"Invitations," both girls asked at the same time.
"Yes. Master Arnav has invited you," Bittoji said, giving an invitation to Khushi, "and Master Rishabh has invited you," Bittoji said, giving the other invitation to Madhu, "over for dinner on Saturday night."
The girls just stared blankly at the invitations and then at each other, and then at Bittoji.
"I hope both of you ladies come," Bittoji said. "My master's would be very happy," he smiled.
When he smiled, he didn't seem so creepy and the girls faintly smiled and then Bittoji and the Principal left. The entire student body tried to see what they were holding but the girls put it away in their bag and tried to head out the lunch room when Karan and Arjun came in their way.
"So what the dude want," Arjun asked, moving in close to Madhu.
Khushi went in between them. "None of your business."
"Oh, not so friendly are we," Karan asked, going in between them.
"Oh please," Madhu said, going between them. "Back off!"
"Why should we," Arjun asked.
"I suggest you do," Khushi said.
"Or what," Karan asked.
"You'll see at Cristina's party tonight," Madhu said.
"Since when did you two get invited," Arjun asked.
"We weren't," Khushi said. "You know we always crash."
"Right," Karan said. "Fine, see you then," he winked and Khushi rolled her eyes.
Trishna got jealous and strutted away, Lavanya following behind.
"What are you planning," Khushi asked.
"I don't know. I just said it to get out of the situation."
"Great! Just great!"
Khushi paced back and forth in her room and Madhu thought to herself, sitting on Khushi's bed.
"I got it," Khushi exclaimed after thinking a while.
"What," Madhu asked, standing up.
Khushi just lifted her eyebrows like she was the grinch. "Just wait till tonight," and she winked.
