Nivi was feeling down. She'd totally messed up her interview and knew there was no point in even waiting for a phone call back from them. She felt like she'd answered all their questions through a haze and she didn't know if it was because she was still shook up from almost getting run over or if it was something else. She was still thinking about it to herself as she went out to water the plants out front.
She'd spoken to Divya as soon as she gotten home and Divya had listened to her until she'd let it all out before saying slowly, 'Maybe it's actually a good thing you were distracted Nivi. You know how you only went for that job because it was the only response you'd gotten so far right? I know you would have hated working there; bank jobs are so boring and it wasn't right for you at all...' Nivi knew Divya was right but still she felt bad until Divya hugged her and said something much better would come along soon because she had a good feeling about it. Nivi sighed and was just thinking that maybe it was for the best when she looked up and suddenly realized someone was standing in front of her and she had no idea who he was or how long he'd been there!
Viren watched as the girl watered the plants with more concentration than he'd ever seen anyone put into doing something so normal. She'd stopped muttering to herself and was so focused it was actually cute. He wanted to say something but she was still looking down and seemed to be unaware of his presence so he watched her curiously, again trying to figure out who she was; after a few minutes she looked up suddenly and Viren could only stare, her eyes had widened when she realized he was standing there and seeing them, all other thoughts flew out of Viren's head.
'Tum! What are you doing here?!!' Viren couldn't stop himself as he saw the girl had the same eyes as the one he'd almost hit this morning. She looked at him in confusion and said, 'I live here, who are you?!' and Viren realized she wouldn't know him because he'd been wearing his helmet. He was still stunned and she was still looking at him with the biggest eyes he'd ever seen. In the back of his mind he was still thinking that he couldn't believe he'd almost run Divya or Nivi over...Dadi would have killed him!!
Nivi watched the guy and wondered if there was something wrong with him as she waited for him to reply to her question; he looked normal enough...better than normal even, she thought unwillingly. He was wearing dark blue jeans with a red tee and a black jacket. His sleeves were pushed up and he had his hands in his pockets as he watched her. There was what looked like a flute sticking out of his pocket and it was so random that Nivi wondered if she was seeing things. He looked shocked to see her, almost as if he knew her and she started to think back, she can't have known him...she was sure she would have remembered meeting this guy. But still, there was something about him that was so familiar somehow...He blinked a couple of times and Nivi found herself wondering if guys were supposed to have such thick eyelashes and then shook her head at the crazy thought and asked 'Aap ko kuch chahiye tha?' He seemed to shake himself too before he smiled all of a sudden and said 'So are you Nivedita or Divya?' without answering her question at all.
His whole face lit up when he smiled and Nivi found herself wanting to smile back but she reminded herself he could be anyone, just because he seemed to know her name didn't mean he actually knew her. She frowned instead of smiling and asked 'Do you always answer a question with a question?!' Viren watched her thinking she was really very pretty and she seemed to be getting slightly annoyed...he remembered something from childhood and suddenly had an idea of who she was. He smiled even wider and said 'You can't be Nivi cos Nivi was always such a moti... so you must be Divya right?!' Viren watched as her face went red and it looked like she might explode and he was fairly sure it was Nivi; she'd always hated it when he called her Moti even though she never had been.
Nivi was suddenly as angry as she'd been this morning at Yash and she wanted to throw something at this guy who was being so rude to her without even knowing her. When he said the word 'moti' she felt her brain trying to tell her something but she ignored it and said as calmly as she could manage, 'Look I don't know who you are or what you're doing here, but please leave quietly...before I find someone to throw you out!' Viren tried not to laugh at her fake calm tone and thought quickly before saying 'Actually, I'm looking for Nivedita Sharma...I nearly ran her over today and I wanted to apologise...as well as tell her to be more careful and watch her step in the future!'
He saw her eyes widen again in recognition and he knew then that this was Nivi. She only looked shocked for a few seconds and he thought he must have really annoyed her because suddenly she was saying all her sentences too fast for him to understand, 'Tum! You're telling ME to be careful? How can you say that, how fast were you going?! You're supposed to brake when you come round a corner! Because of you I messed up my interview...and now you're still SMILING instead of apologising?!' Viren couldn't help it, he started laughing and then suddenly felt water drench him as she emptied the last of the water from the can onto his face!
