This is a 19 year guy, telling my own story.
Love, it was freaking everywhere when I was in my high school. Someone to hold hands with. Sigh, some of them had more people, than hands.
But I was the forever alone guy, the nice guy. Girls have always been difficult for a nice guy, so I kinda gave up on it and concentrated all my sexual energy on studies and movies.
When you are done chasing it, shit happens. It happened in my relative’s wedding.I just went to say hii to my cousin, Himani di, she was standing with this beautiful girl.I was taken a back when I saw her. In my awkward avatar I started spitting stupid things. My cousin calmed me down and left us with a wink. I guess that’s what a wingman does. Her name was Akriti, she was recovering from the awkward turmoil.
Akriti- So Abhay, which class?
Me- 12th and you?
Me- That’s a nice pair of shoes you got there (killing myself for saying it,I freaked out)
Akriti- Yeah,I like your hood too(It was hideous hood,knee length,who wears that)
We had a chat which went from exams to Pasta. In the end, she asked me for my number. Guess what!, I don’t have a cell phone. I did remember my di’s cell number, gave her that. I was so ecstatic that I got to talk to a beautifully combined X-chromosome, brag to my friends about it.
Late night, my sis comes up to me and said “50 rupees de, ek baat batungi, warna pachtaega” (Give me fifty rupees. I will tell you something. You will regret later if you don’t give me now). She finally agreed on 20 (so much for family love).. “Tera txt aaya h,Akriti ke naam se” (You got a message from Akriti). I was on 7th heaven, Could it really happen? She took my number and actually texted me. Pinch me, rather slap me on the face.
For another 50 bucks, I got the cellphone for the night. We chatted for 2 hours, connected in some deeper ways. The most beautiful two hours ever. Got a new sim and 1100 model phone.
After few weeks all my dreams came crashing, she told me she had a boyfriend in Dehli. I just knew one thing, I can’t let this special girl/friend go.
One day, I texted her
She- “Will not be able to text today..;’(”
Me- “Why, you flunked again? :p”
She- “No, it’s personal”
Me- “What personal, I am Abhay, remember? We are chatting every night for 2 months”
She- “My boyfriend dumped me, I am not feeling well”
Something blew inside my mind, I took my phone and called her, for the first time ( I am kinda shy). She was crying, I didn’t know what to say. I tried making silly jokes, “Chal kam se kam,night vouchre ke toh paise bache“. Didn’t payoff, my own balance was over within 10 minutes. I sent her a goodnight message, to add to my silly jokes.
Next night,I called her again. At least she was not crying, but she was pissed. I continued cracking my stupid jokes on love and life. Finally one made her smile, aahhh, what a relief.
After a month of my huge phone bill,
Akriti- Milte h? (Let’s meet!)
Me- kya milte h? (What??)
Akriti- Dumbo,hum milte h,place? (I meant, let’s meet!)
Me- Hmmmmm..U got any ideas? (Oh! got any ideas?)
Akriti- Zoo chlte h,mere sare dost vahi jaate h. (Let’s go to the zoo. that’s where all my friends go)
Me- K..Zoo it is,tomorrow 11 a.m
Akriti- Yupp deal.
We met, she brought chocolates for me, I went empty handed, that was lame.S he took my hand in hers and we were on our way.
P.S – Never told any of my friends about my relationship, I never thought it will turn out serious, but it did. Till now, very few of friends know her name. Overprotective?. That’s the most fun part. That’s what makes us special!
