"RV... Hello... Hello... Oye... Hello!" KD was screaming into the phone. He was on the brink of pulling his hair out. Only if it wasn't for fact that he loved his soft luscious locks too much to even think of subjecting them to such cruelty. He looked at his watch again for the fifth time in the last two minutes as he stood back leaning on his bike. Looking at the entry gate of the club he was standing outside, he sighed, he could just imagine the cruelty Ranveer was going to subject him to after hearing the news. It was right then that the devil zoomed into the parking lot next to him in his hot wheels.
"Yo Superman!" RV bellowed jumping out of the convertible as KD rolled his eyes at the bright flashing vampire smile of his best friend. To him it seemed like Ranveer was on a lifelong 'happy pill' treatment.
"What the hell's wrong with your phone?" KD said as he picked his jacket from the back seat of RV's car and wore it.
"Shitty network dude. And I was driving anyway..." He has as he straightened KD's collar looking at his jacket in extreme concentration.
"Stop it Fido!" KD slapped his hand away. "There's a problem." He said jerking his head towards the club entry.
"This is so NOT HAPPENING!!" RV shouted and KD wondered how he had ended up in this mess... oh well, he exactly knew how.
"This is it!! This is it Superman! I got my chance!!" RV jumped on the back of a very unaware KD who sat in the corner of the college grounds busy giving his assignment a last glance. "Oops!!" RV bit his tongue when he realized that with the shove KD's pen had skidded through the length of the whole page slashing his meticulously written essay.
"SHERU!" KD launched up from his place and turned around to glare at RV who was already five steps away from him, all ready to sprint. It took just a mere twitch from KD before RV bounded from there holding onto his dear life. From the time these two had begun as jungle-gym playmates they had hit it off better than Humpty Dumpty. They were thick as thieves before KD could even accomplish saying RV's name without getting stuck. But for a toddler he was smart, and that was how RV's name faced such an evolution - from Ranveer Shergill to Sheru a short version of his surname - a nickname that went on to Fido, Tommy and Bozo with the change in situations. RV's nickname for KD came much later, when KD's metaphorically flying speed was discovered by their coach in junior school. And that was just the reason that they both were now rolling on the grass with KD on the top.
"Sorry sorry sorry!" RV had his face scrunched up and eyes closed with his hands shielding his face. KD's chuckled at his expression and rolled off him. It took RV a few seconds to realize that the well deserved punch was not coming and he opened his eyes.
"What?" KD raised his brow at him as they sat up. "What chance were you talking about?" He asked brushing off the grass from RV's shirt. It didn't even take a second for RV's eyes to light up.
"The Conti Party!!" RV's excitement was met with an utterly confused look. "I can finally tell her that I like her!!" RV said with matter-of-fact expression.
"Oh god!! Bozo wake up... She doesn't even know you!"
"Dude she knows me alright... We were lab partners in JC!" RV shook his head. "Anyway... We're going to the party. That's it. And there I'm going charm my way straight to her heart." RV pulled up his collar.
"Great plan Barbie!" KD patted RV on the back and walked away towards the place where he had left his stuff.
"You...!" RV jumped on his back once again and this time KD caught him.
"Stag entry not allowed." KD put a hand RV's shoulder who had already chewed all of his nails away by now.
"I have to get in... I have no idea how... and I don't care. I just have to!!" RV started pacing around the parking lot as KD leaned back on his bike, his eyes following his best friend's every step. Suddenly he came and stopped right next to him, and before even KD's eyes could ask him 'what' let alone his voice, he whispered something to him making his eyes bulge out.
"NO!! Not even in hell! Bozo you've gone crazy!!" KD pushed him away, but then there he was, aptly for his name, with the puppy dog eyes and miserable expression that KD let out a sigh and pinched the bridge of his nose. It was enough for RV to start beaming as he dragged KD along with him.
For some time they stood there, making sure there was no one in the line that knew them before KD took a deep breath and looked at RV who mouthed - 'now or never.' They approached the bouncers that were stamping everyone with the ugly looking club logo.
"Stag entry not allowed." The bouncer threw up his big burly arms to stop them from going in. RV gulped and looked from the arm to the face of the giant.
"We're not..." His voice came out as a squeak. He cleared his throat and tried again. "We're not going in as stags. We're together." He wove his arm through KD's. "As a couple."
The two bouncers stared at each other and then at the two guys in front of them. KD tried to give an expression which was his feeble attempt at an assurance smile.
"Couples strictly means a girl and a boy." The other bouncer grinned, too proud at his quick thinking.
"Excuse me!" RV raised his voice as he tried his best to impersonate his mother and kept his hands on his hips. "Are you trying to say we don't have a right to be a couple, are you?!" He almost would've jabbed them in the chest with his forefinger had they not been so scary looking.
"Ah... We... Umm..." The 'quick-thinker' bouncer was out of ideas.
"My boyfriend here is a lawyer, and he can drag both of you and this club to the court for defamation and violation of our rights." KD genuinely beamed at RV that he had atleast bothered to read the index of KD's course books. RV's confidence and his acting gave KD a wild sense that this crazy idea could work.
"Forget that, before the whole case happens, you both are going to lose your jobs. I'm a pretty influential lawyer." KD said as he whipped out his cell phone from his pocket. RV grinned at his best friend's two cents of drama added in. The two sinewy guys in front of them looked at each other. Surely the manager would scream at them for letting this go out of hands. This was a modern world, maybe such things would be expected. One of them nodded to the other and he stamped the two loony best friends with the entry pass.
As they entered the large wooden doors and felt the blast of music pound their ears, they grinned crazily at each other - part one of the plan successful. However, unknown to them,a little behind them in the line had stood Kiya Gujral, Panchi Rastogi's best friend. And who was Panchi Rastogi, you may ask? The girl this whole thing was being done for, the love of RV's life.
... To Be Continued.
I'm asking you to pardon me for two things:
1) Especially the boys, I'm sure you would not find RV-KD's equation like it is between most male pals... I'm not really good at write boys-to-boys conversations in lighthearted comic scenes.
2) The legal outlook is completely absurd. Honestly! No club bouncers will let this happen!!
Do not worry... I'm about to finish it off and I won't be leaving it hanging like my other multi part OS.
