Maan walked away towards the parking lot, smirking evilly.
Geet walked to her car and started driving back. Soon as she reached the main entrance of XIBM a bike just blocked her way. Soon 6-8 bikes encircled her car hovering round and round. All were wearing helmets and most probably were boys!
She pushed the brakes and blew the horn for them them to move. But they didn’t. after sometime, the bikes stood still…encircling her while another bike came into view. All the other bikers swiftly moved aside to give him space.
Maan parked his bike exactly in front of her car and walked towards her throwing his helmet to one of his mates. When geet saw his face, she just realized what was in his mind. She switched off the ignition, placed her sunglasses over her head and walked out. There was a moment when both stood face to face…looking at each other…a cold war going between them.
Maan (with attitude): so we meet again, Miss Geet whatever you are!
Maan: not so soon Ms. Attitude. You still have to learn the rules of this college…MY rules!
The word “get out” actually made Maan’s flesh crawl under his skin. How dare she say something like that to him? Nobody ever did, then who the hell was she?
Maan: Rule 1…you have to be here by sharp 9 o’clock.
Maan: rule 2—do what the seniors tell you….
Too much attitude…Maan thought! He turned and walked towards her….till his face was closer to hers and smirked!
Maan: not so soon baby…
Maan: of course…if you don’t remember, then let me do the honours—you arrived late…1st rule broken. You parked your car at a forbidden place…MY PLACE to be precise…2nd rule broken and your attitude…I hate it…so its payback time!
Maan: its MY place and everyone knows that!
Geet (with a mean look): guess what Mr. Showoff, if I’d ever have to commit suicide, then I’ll definitely jump from your ego level to your IQ level!
Kawaii *salutes* what a classic insult!!! Great going geet!
Another hit….and his temper reached the danger level….a mere newbie insulting him? He clenched his fists toght….guess she didn’t know his IQ level then! He closed his eyes…if she wasn’t a mere girl, she’d have been in hospital by now!
No one has ever insulted him like this…nevertheless she is just a showoff..he thought…will probably go back to her timid self pretty soon! Trying to impress boys with that damn attitude of hers…damn it!
Maan (angrily): fine Ms. Attitude…I’ll definitely give you a chance of committing suicide..only after you get to know my IQ level. But till then…get off that filthy car of yours from my place!
Maan: You get Off…
Kawaii *confused*: what happed to these two??? Just a moment ago, it felt like they were fighting the battle of their lives…and now…..like two kids from std 2!!!! Guess we can’t help it if it’s the case of Maan and geet! Sigh…..
Their silly “YOU” fight continued! Dan and Rahul stood watching the drama far away.
Both looked at each other and shrugged sadly.
Dan: hey…hey stop it you two. Enough already!
Rahul (screaming): STOP IT!!!!!!
Rahul: enough of your stupid fight..god..you both just met each other today and look at the way you two are fighting!!! Feels like you two have known each other since long!!!
Geet (self thought): know this JERK….not in this life!!
Dan saw the fire rising between them.
Rahul: if you two want to settle your scores, why not do it fair & square rather than quarrelling like kids?
Now Kawaii *wonders* isn’t it fuelling the already dangerously burning fire???
Now something struck Maan. His tensed muscles immediately eased down and the frown on his face was replaced by an evil smile. He turned to look at geet who just twitched her brows seeing that evil smile of his….she knew he was thinking something or the other…and she just can’t trust his intentions!
Maan (calmly): you are right Dan…we should play fair and square. Then he turned towards a suspicious geet and chuckled.
Maan: so I challenge you for a basketball match Ms. Attitude.
Basketball……geet’s mind just got stuck on that. her confused face just turned into an agonized one. She hadn’t touched the ball since she had been preparing to leave for London…about a week that was..and again.some old memories relived within her mind…
“Guess what Sweetu..I just learned a blind pass today“…her MK’s words just echoed in her mind.
Tears burned her eyes..why..why does she has to be reminded of all the things that she wants to forget again and again? Why does her past keeping haunting her even now when she has changed herself completely? Why? Why? Why?
There was no answer to those questions. She closed her eyes just to stop her tears from falling out and her head just bent low. She clutched her fingers into a fist tightly.
Maan stood there grinning….waiting for her answer…but then she saw her…she suddenly looked so down! All her energy has just been drained out it felt! But Maan is Maan..and you cannot change the fact.
Before he could say anything, she fought back her tears and just cut in!
Maan stood there quiet…she suddenly sounded so low…that was strange!
Maan: leave her. Am sure she is scared and that’s why backed out. She probably doesn’t know how to play basketball so walked off fearing her defeat. Don’t worry that’s her real self. She is just a showoff…so forget it.
And he walked off. Dan and Rahul followed him but the three of them somewhere had a feeling that her backing out wasn’t of fear! Something was amiss. Nevertheless, most probably, Maan got back his parking lot..that was one good thing for now
