UNDER THE SKY LANTERNS - PART 6
An original story by Archana Vinod
THE OFFICE - MORNING
The super hot coffee soaks and scalds Siddhant's lap!
SIDDHANT: (springs onto his feet in agony) Awwooofff! Shiiit!
He grabs whatever he can - Handkerchief! Tissue! Paper! He is blind with pain as he dabs furiously all over his lap!
Roli shrugs hisses and bites her tongue.
ROLI: (quietly) Sorry, it was an accident!
Siddhant is mad with pain and rage. He mops up his pants as he struggles to stand still.
Remo and Vimla notice this.
VIMLA: (cringes) Ooofff!
REMO: Are you alright buddy?
Siddhant can't even talk! His eyes and face are red in anguish!
ROLI: (a bit scared) Are you okay?
SIDDHANT: (through clenched teeth) No! I'm not okay!
ROLI: (in a low voice) I'm sorry, it was an accident. Honest!
SIDDHANT: Accident? ACCIDENT??!!
Roli is stunned and infuriated at his angry outburst. Siddhant trembles in extreme pain and distress.
SIDDHANT: You call this an accident? Tell me one thing seriously, are you on drugs?
ROLI: (offended) What? What do you mean?
SIDDHANT: How else can you be so senseless?
ROLI: (waves her finger at his face) Hello! Enough! Don't cross the line. Told you that it was an accident! And it was! Are you telling me that I spilled this over your precious seed on purpose?
SIDDHANT: (infuriated) Don't point at my face!
ROLI: (doesn't give a damn) Seriously stop barking and get on with your life.
In the blink of an eye, she flicks Siddhant's stapler and pins up the print outs.
SIDDHANT: Hey! (hopping mad)
She doesn't bother to respond.
SIDDHANT: Hey, keep it back here! That's my stapler! If you need a stapler, go and find one!
But Roli is in no mood for crap. She simply pins the paper and replaces the stapler.
ROLI: Save your breath. I'm not running away with it. I'm giving it back!
SLAM! She slams the stapler on to his desk, just to make her message loud and clear.
ROLI: Here it is! Your stapler! Now you can go on and shove it up your-
But before Roli can complete, Vikrant comes out of his cabin.
VIKRANT: What's happening? (looks around and smiles) Any problem? (to Roli) What's going on Roli?
ROLI: (smiles and nods) Nothing, Vikrantji.
VIKRANT: You wanted to shove something up somewhere. (chuckles) Hope it's not me.
Roli quickly settles down with her presentation, embarrassed that Vikrant overheard their conversation.
Vikrant walks over to his new team and notices the wet patch on Siddhant's lap.
VIKRANT: (grins) What man, haven't you learnt to control yourself even after all these years?
SIDDHANT: (embarrassed) No. I mean yes - it's coffee actually. Got spilled over."
VIKRANT: Ooof! Damn! Hope you didn't bake yourself!
SIDDHANT: (tries to smile) No. I'm okay.
Vikrant lands a couple of encouraging pats on Siddhant's back and continues to move along the aisles.
BHANUPRIYA: (turns to Vikrant) Good news! First business meeting of the FMCG team, courtesy of Roli.
BHANUPRIYA: Yup. Om Enterprises.
VIKRANT: (very happy) Om Enterprises? Kya baat hai Roli! First day itself started huh? Good! Good! Very good! Excellent!
ROLI: (smiles shyly) Thank you.
BHANUPRIYA: So I was planning to leave with Roli in some time.
VIKRANT: No. Not you. I need you for some urgent work today Bhanu. Let her pair up with Siddhant.
BOING! Siddhant and Roli look up in utter shock!
VIKRANT: When's the meeting?
ROLI: In around an hour and a half.
VIKRANT: Great then. You guys can move now itself.
Siddhant is very disturbed. After all this, I have to go out for a presentation with her too? Grrr...
VIKRANT: (glances over at Siddhant) It'll also give you a chance to change. I believe you live quite close by.
SIDDHANT: (drearily) Yeah.
BHANUPRIYA: Best part is that he has a car which makes things easier.
Siddhant sports a "oh really?" look on his face. He really regrets having a car!
VIKRANT: (bounces on his toes) Excellent! All the best! Get going then!
Roli and Siddhant prepare to leave for their first business presentation.
Siddhant is pissed off, big time! I don't believe this; he thinks irritably, why can't they send her with Remo or Vimla? Why me??! Hey Uparwaale!
Roli is as irritated. Hey Matarani, she thinks, I can't stand him already! Now I have to go on a presentation with him too? Uff!
Roli checks her file before leaving. Presentation, contract, credentials etc. All good.
Siddhant glances over at her with a let's get going' look on his face. He doesn't wait for her to respond. He just walks out!
She too follows suit.

ROSID SS: INKAAR!
