Prema swallowed hard and turned abruptly only to bump into the lecturer. Her ears turned heated, she could feel the blush that crept through her cheeks. She heard the sniggers of the male population of the class and the hissing of the girls.
"I—I…I'm soo sorry Sir. I never knew…" she swallowed again and moved away blindly, tripping with the front bench. The book she was holding flew from her hand and landed on Snigdha's head. This time, the whole class roared with laughter.
Prema cursed her luck inwardly and gathered herself back again. Throwing an angry glare at Snigdha she took back her book and took a seat. Once seated, she settled her whole attention on the handsome man standing in front of the board, who happens to be a lecturer. She sighed and tried to concentrate on the lesson.
Probal Chowdhury, the latest addition in the Department of CSE in BUET was an extremely handsome man with sheer brilliance that made him being one of youngest lecturers. As a student he was very popular and known among all as a very confident person. But standing in the teacher's dais, his confidence somehow got lost. Teaching students who were merely 2/3 years younger than him wasn't easy. And the fact that all the girls of the class would stare shamelessly at him wouldn't help much.
"Well, class…as you know, this is your first class for course 6402, Graph Theory. Do you have any ideas about what we're going to learn?"
"Yes, off course we do." Snigdha replied smugly. "We're going to learn graphs, each graph has two axix, X axis, Y axis." She looked triumphantly at Prema.
Probal however rolled his eyes in shock and Prema giggled from her seat. Immediately, Probal's attention was turned to her.
Prema said in a confident voice, "We are not going to study class 8's Graph I think. It's graph theory, we had to deal with edges and nods."
Probal gave her an impressive nod and Prema blushed.
A wolf whistle was heard from the back.
Saikat yawned loudly from the back seat and put his head down in the bench, "Rahat, wake me up when the class is over or if one of the girls are killed by the other."
Rahat and few other boys sniggered.
"Hey Prema, we're here." Called a voice. She turned and smiled at the group sitting on the low wall in front of the cafeteria.
"Hi guys, what's up?" she sat down beside Himel.
"Alright." Ruma replied. "What's up with you?"
"I'm ok…actually no. I want to kill someone." She said matter-of-factly.
Tanim, who was the most aggressive one of the group leaned forward expectantly, "Whom? Can I help you?"
Ruma pushed him aside. "Don't be an idiot."
"Why blame poor soul. He can't help being an idiot." Himel grinned, earning a punch from Tanim. "Ouch!"
"Seriously, tell us what happened?" Ruma said.
"Don't ask. You guys are all happy being together, and I'm stuck alone with that Snigdha and Gong." Prema replied wearily.
"It's not our fault." Himel shrugged, "what can we do if you're more brilliant than us and get yourself admitted in section A, we the bad bad students have to study in section B, nah?"
Prema glared at Himel, "Funny hearing from a BUET, CSE student that he's bad bad student."
"Arey Buet, eita ekta jinish hoilo…Dilli ka laddu….khaileo postaba, na khaileo postaba."
"Yup, there's only one privilege of being a Buet student." Ruma giggled, "Bangladesher vitor, BUET er baire – Onek Shunam!"
Here is the Episode two....let me know if it's good, bad, maha bad or something without class.......any kind of suggestion is welcome as I've said before....Next update will be on Monday!
