Thanks for the comments!
Just as Akash and Manya stared at each other, a dim sound of music filled the air. It traveled over the hills, being carried by the wind.
M: Yeh music kahan se araha hai?
A: I don't know.
They listened closer and made out the song "Tumse Hi" from Jab We Met.
A: Want to dance?
Manya looked up at him.
A: Yeaah! I think its the perfect time.
Manya shrugged and smiled. She held out her hand and he held it, and they swayed to the song slowly.
Suddenly, the music grew dimmer and finally faded. Manya frowned. Akash looked at her and laughed.
A: Must've been a passing car?
A: Lakeeein, ab hum hamara dance adoora kaise chod sakte hain?
Akash hurried inside his car and turned up the same song, loud and clear. The music filled the air again, louder this time.
Akash looked at Manya and smiled.
A: Meri teacher ne ek daffa kaha tha ki jab tum usko paalo jo tumhe kabhi nahin mila, tho ussai dobara khaune na dhaina...
Manya stared at him nervously and a bit confused. He laughed.
A: I mean dance partner
Akash looked at her teasingly.
A: Tumne kya samja?
M: Dance karein?
He shrugged and slipped his hand over her waist, making her wince. He smiled.
A: You're perfect, Manya.
Manya looked up at him.
A: The perfect dancer...
Manya smiled, pursing her lips. He looked at her and smiled.
As the song ended, they both walked over the hill and sat down in the middle.
A: Okay. Ek game khelein?
A: Rapid fire, okay?
A: Okayy...Shahrukh yaan Salman?
A: Kareena yaan Deepika?
A: Jai Shree yaan AD?
Manya rolled her eyes.
M: JAI SHREE!
A: Love or hate?
A: Who do you love?
Manya stopped suddenly, realizing what she had said. Why did she just say that? Akash raised his eyebrows.
M: I meant-no one-
A: No one and you. You're right, kaafi rhyming hai dhonu mein, na?
Manya blushed furiously.
A: Oos din tumne mere liye wish ker dhi. Aur aaj ekraar bhi ker diya?
M: AKASH! It just slipped out.
A: Yeah. Kehte hain iss game mein sach hontoon per ajaata hai.
Manya rolled her eyes, knowing he was just teasing her.
M: Acha, tho chalo maan lo I do love you. Tum kya karoge?
Manya nodded. Akash grinned.
A: Main iss haseen pal ko jaane na dhaita.
Manya looked up at him, surprised.
M: Acha? Kya karte?
Akash inched closer to her. Her heart raced faster as he looked her in the eyes.
A: Main tumhare paas aata...
Manya breathed a bit heavier.
M: Aur kya kehte?
A: Main kehta ki ab har pal apni zindagi ka main tumhare naam kerna chahta hoon.
Manya's eyes drooped a bit as he moved closer.
A: And that-
M: That what?
A: I love you, too.
Manya raised her eyes, staring into his. He grinned and settled back in his seat.
A: Laaakein, yeh sab sach nahin hai.
Manya's heart was still racing. She swallowed and nodded.
M: Uh, yeah...
Akash smiled naughtily again.
A: Aur agar hota tho?
M: Thooo...we'd be the next Romeo and Juliet?
Akash thought about it.
A: But...they died.
Manya looked up, thinking. She snapped her finger.
M: We're the modern
Romeo and Juliet!
Akash raised his fist in the air.
A: WE LIVE!
They both looked at each other with a serious face, and then burst out laughing.
A: Acha, ek baat suno.
M: Hmm, sunao.
She put her hand under her chin and her elbow on her knee. Akash nodded his head.
A: I'm reading a poem tomorrow.
A: A poem!
Akash nodded, pretending as if it were a secret.
A: Asmaan mein.
M: Acha? Kaun se badal ke oopar?
A: Shut up! In AD, of course!
A: Thooo, I want you to come.
M: In AD?
M: Tumhara screw deela hai? They'd eat me alive.
A: No they won't.
M: Acha? And why won't they?
A: Kyunki tum Jai Shree ki student banker nahin aao gi.
M: Tho ka banker aaoongi?
A: Akash Rathod ki girlfriend.
Manya stared at him.
A: Girl, friend. You know. Friend that's a girl.
M: Oh, um, yeah-uh...
Akash shrugged his eyebrows.
A: Aaogi na?
M: Main aaoon yaan na aoon. Tumhe kya?
Akash stared at her with a smile on his face.
A: Ab tho hum aapki raah dekhne lage hain, sweetheart.
Manya stared back at him as the music of PKEK began to play again. They both suddenly began to laugh again, for no apparent reason.
Woh bhi hasne lagi thi,
Yeh bhi hasne laga tha,
Dhono Samje Nahin Thay...
Woh Jo Hone Laga Tha...
Manya entered AD nervously. Eyes averted towards her direction. She heard a few people whisper angrily. She blushed and entered the auditorium where students were presenting poems as an English class assignment. She had arrived just in time. Akash was climbing the steps to the stage.
She stood by the door. She saw him look around and smiled. She raised her hand, and he looked at her with a grin. She smiled back and waved.
A: Okay, today's poem is a special dedication.
The teacher wrote it down quickly.
T: To whom?
A: Jiske liye hai, woh samaj jayeinge.
Manya looked at him quizzically as he began to read.
A: The title is Pyar Ki Ek Kahani, or a Little Love Story...
Manya smiled and sat down in the back, looking at him intently. He stared directly at her.
A: She loved him, and he loved her. He became her Prince Charming and she became his Cinderella. They became the right kind of wrong, they were the last note to the perfect song. They promised that together they'd stay, and that's exactly what they did...Because they've become known as who You and Me are today...
Manya raised her head in surprise. His class clapped and he grinned at them, but he glanced back at Manya. As his teacher talked to him, he winked.
T: Tumhe dedication ke liye tow extra points milte hain, Akash.
Akash smiled widely.
A: Yeh dedication points ke liye nahin tha. It was just to get a message through.
He looked in Manya's direction as he said this. Manya blinked and smiled as the music of PKEK played in the background again. Her heart fluttered like it had never done before.
Manya smiled and Akash did too. It was the beginning of something beautiful, something new.
I was writing that poem and once I completed it I thought it would fit as a cute scene between our couple and added it in!
Next part will be up by tomorrow probably!
