Ashik said to his classmate Akhil, “It’s beautiful. The day, the climate, the feeling, I am sure something special is going to happen today!”
Akhil said, “Indeed, it is a wonderful day.” He smiled and then he continued, “Come let’s go”.
Ashik started on his cycle, with Akhil sitting in front, to their Tuition Centre. By the time they reached, all they could see is locked doors. They sat there admiring the beauty of nature. In no time, the smiling beauty, the Queen of Ashik’s heart, “Hassini” came walking like a pigeon. Ashik, without his knowledge, started admiring her from top to bottom. She was wearing a rose-colored short top and grey skirt. She looked damn cute! He said to himself, “Oh my God, what a girl she is!”
Hassini said a big “Hi” looking strangely at the doors. She asked, “Why the door is still locked?” Akhil, laughing, said that they do not have the key, for which Hassini smirked and looked into Ashik’s eyes.
Ashik, mesmerized by her, said in a husky voice, “It seems that our Sir forgot to bring the keys today, so he has declared a Holiday.” Hassini lips curved, and Ashik continued, “But we have to come tomorrow at sharp 10 in the morning.”
“That’s very bad. I need a summer break.” She snarled. Akhil, understanding the situation, left to home, after signalling Ashik “Good luck” and waving a bye to both of them saying, “I’m bored. I’m leaving. You guys please inform others.”
Ashik, smiling, waved a bye and thanked him in silence. He thought, “What an opportunity to spend time with my girl and that too, on a pleasant romantic evening!”
His brain rang like a wall clock, blood rushed in his veins like a train, his heart pounded and he could hear his favourite song in his mind. Minutes later, Hassini asked, “Hello dreamer…where are you?”
He came back to his senses, lips curved, and he covered it up saying, “Look back. Our friends are coming.” He informed about tomorrow’s grief and today’s happiness. And they left to home. It took around thirty minutes to inform all his tuition-mates, after which, Ashik and Hassini started walking slowly towards her house much like a perfect couple.
In seconds, Ashik sneezed for which Hassini said, “Sorry, I was thinking of you”. “Hmmm…why?” asked Ashik, for which Hassini replied, “Just like that”
“Hmmm… don’t lie…” He insisted and she said, “I am not saying any.”
“You are unbeatable when it comes to situation like this. You must be an idiot.”
“My dear lovable idiot, why can’t you understand me” She said, blushing like never before.
Ashik, flying somewhere on cloud nine asked, “What did you say?”
“I am in love with you…” she paused for a minute for Ashik’s response and then she added, “And I know that you are in love with me!”
Ashik could not react; he blushed, “Nodding head”, as he was the happiest man in the world!
Hassini, blushing, waved a bye and took the road towards her right, which would take her home. Ashik, speechless, nodded his head and said, “Bye my love” and his thoughts were on “The Sweetest Proposal” that he had got a few minutes back, which could be the happiest moment in his life.
