Manya entered through the gates of the field, ready to cheer on for another Jai Shree and AD match. She entered and right away caught Akash's eyes. He was sitting on the his basketball, his chin in his hand, looking at the door expectantly. The moment she entered, he grinned excitedly and stood up.
The whole AD team turned and stared at him, surprised. As Akash walked over to Manya, Manya smiled and began to walk towards him.
Suddenly, a hand caught her arm and pulled her back. Manya turned and saw Roopa.
R: What are you doing?
M: Saying hi to Akash-
R: WHY? He's an enemy, Manya! You know hamari rivalry kaise hai!
Manya turned and looked at Akash who was being helplessly held by Om and Rehan. They both frowned as the buzzer for the game rang.
In between the break, Manya was sitting on the bleacher alone, deep in thought. Would this rivalry even let them be?
A sudden pull interrupted her thoughts. She looked up, shocked. She saw Akash grin at her, his finger on his lips.
M: Akash? Tum yahan?
He held her arm and they both snuck out to his car. Akash closed the door and grinned.
M: Aise hans kyun rahe ho?
A: Becaussee this will be our FIRST date.
M: Acha? Aur yeh game?
A: Chodo na!
Manya stared at him.
M: Lakein AD ki win tho tum per-
Akash leaned close to her, staring in her eyes.
A: Koi game tumse important nahin hai, Manya.
Manya smiled shyly. They drove upto the hills again, both getting out of the car and sitting on the edge of a hill.
M: Acha, tho bolo, hum yoon chup chup ker milen ge kya?
A: Hrm...I guess so. Batha dhaite hain, phir?
M: No way! College mein life miserable ho jaye gi.
A: Oof, yeh mohabbat ke dushman!
Manya laughed. She looked at the ground, thinking, when Akash suddenly leaned close, almost breathing on her neck. He pushed her hair softly back and whispered,
A: I love you, Manya.
Manya looked up, surprised. She stared into his eyes.
M: I-I love you, too, Akash.
They both smiled warmly, staring into each other's eyes.
M: Aise kya dekh rahe ho?
A: Tumhari aankhoon mein mujhe woh sab nazar aata hai...jiske bina zindagi adoori ho jaye...
M: Pehle bhi tho jeete thay na. Mere bina?
A: Aur ab aisa lagta hai ki mujhe zindagi sirf abhi jaker mili hai...
M: Poori zindagi hoon main?
A: Zindagi tho phir bhi saath chod dhaiti hai....
He laughed and pressed his forehead against hers.
A: Tumhe tho main jaane nahin dhoon ga...
M: Kitna pyar karte ho mujhse?
A: Tumse thooooda sa zyada!
Manya sat straight and frowned.
M: What is that, two percent?
Akash opened his mouth in shock.
A: WHAT? TUM MUJHSE 0 PERCENT PYAR KERTI HO?
He grabbed her waist and tickled her, both laughing.
A: SAY YOU LOVE ME!
Manya stopped laughing. She looked at him.
M: I love you, Akash.
Akash smiled. She was on his lap now, her arms around his neck.
M: Jab ek ladki kisi ko dil dhaiti hai na, Akash, woh apna sab kuch oos ke naam ker baithi hai...tum kabhi yeh barosa thodo ge tho nahin na?
A: Agar kabhi thod bhi diya, tho yeh meri dua hai ki mujhe maut bhi naseeb na ho...
Manya stared at him, and hugged him tightly.
M: Humein yeh log milne tho nahin dheinge na?
A: No. Lakein chup chup ker milne ka bhi apna hi maza hai, haina?
Hum Lakh Chupayein Pyar Magar...
Dunya ko Patha Chal JAye Ga...
Akash grinned. Manya stood up and ran across the hill. Akash grabbed her arm and pulled her close.
Lakein chup chup ke milne se...milne ka maza tho ayegaa!
They laughed as he held her from the waist. He kissed her forehead softly and hugged her tightly.
A: Kabhi kabhi ajnabee bhi kitne kareeb ho jaate hain na?
M: Pyar mein kho jaate hain...
They both hugged each other, smiling.
Aa rahi hai hassi mujhko is baat par
kis tarha pyaar mein dono khone lage
dono khone lage...hmmmm...ahaha...
