Brushing routine and Meenalochani
She called Vandu Akka as she drove home, ranted and complained "Innikki tiruppi insult panninaan" she compl;ained (he was practically nasty to me)
"Have u spoken with anyone at work about this Vandu asked worried
"No I havent" she stalled
"Ennachu di onakku?" (What happened to u?) Akka enquired, startled... you never took things lying down before... you are either exaggerating or wigging out
Ishita looked out of the window, Akka hit the nail on the head...
"Actually I am not... doing either. Its almost like he hates me for something I never did"
"U didnt give him the stuff he wanted you to work on" Akka pointed out
"No not THAT Akka, I suspect he is ticked for some weird reason in general... and when he sees me he just loses it"
"Di u go to college with him or something?" Akka asked being a Math teacher all logical..
"NOO.. Inda rakshasana I WOULD RECOGNIZE IN COMA (I would recognize this devil in coma)" Ishita yelled
"Is he SO TERRIBLE to look at?" Vandu asked... shocked
"Not at all" "Au contraire" "AYYOYOO" "ILLAVE ILLE" "NOt at all" "Bilkul nahi" "Ekdum nahi" " THATS THE WRONGEST CONCLUSION" "I DID NOT MEAN THAT" "I MEANT HIS ATTITUDE, NO NO NO NOT HIS LOOKS"
"He is 6.3 and has a head full of uncombed hair, and a stubble and wears designer duds that are frayed or tattered or faded, wears flip flops, wears some fancy sporty watch, WHO WEARS A WATCH WHO WEARS A WATCH THESE DAYS?
"Always rotates his phone... must brush his teeth 7 times a day... showers once in 7 days" "his eye lashes are longer than mine and his eye brows arch better than that parlorwaali makes MINE ARCH"
"Irukeya toiongitteya di? (Are u asleep or awake?) Vandu asked..
"ernnachu?" (what happened)Ishita asked shocked
"I asked you if the guy looked like a daddi (idiot)" Vandu said
"Mmm... not quite... I mean..I" Ishita stopped
she sulked... braking her mind... and the car... it screeched
"Avana pathi nenaichindu kapala moksham poyidaade, go home and call me (Dont think of him and die a premature death)" Vandu ordereds
"I hate him Akka" pleading
"I KNOW KANNA" Vandu worried as she hung up
He responded to voicemail as he doubled up on the stairs at home... reaching the balcony..
The help brought him his evening drink, Sam Adams... in a frosted mug... it was a warmer winter day... so beer it was... going to be
He checked updates, pictures and memes on FB... IG and every place else he had a presence
Turned and faced the huge French doors leading inside the house
sipped... and looked inside... and sipped...
He made plans for dinner with Mihir... Mihir asked if he could invite Ranjan... he knocked the idea off the cliff the very next second
Sam called... "It might be any day R&B"
R&B smiled... the first time in months... a full smile
"Gender identification is illegal in India, u know that"
"I hope it is, Tanmay Batra deserves a girl... pretty as you and wild as him" he smirked
"I WISH HALF A DOZEN GIRLS ON YOU, I wish each other is exponentially worse than you, I wish they all have their beeps tattooed at 12 u jerk"
He laughed OUT LOUD
"What about rings? I love rings there too"
"R&B kuch to sharam karo DI DI HOON TUMHARI" she ordered
"U started it" he said smugly
"Thanks" she said softly
"Kyon?" he asked
"Tu gaya na daftar" she said
"Well I didnt go last week, I went to Blore and Kerala"
"Wahan kyon? Did u get cozy with a Mallu chick?"
"WHAT IS IT ABOUT Karnataka and Kerala THAT MAKES U AND MIHIR THINK I AM GETTING HORNY?"
"Shut up u oaf" she shouted
"I am furiously picking Tamil Nadu (not Andhra Pradesh if u notice )for my next rendezvous" he said carelessly
"oh!Meenalochani?" Sam teased... he didnt hear it as he cut her off to answer Mihir's call
