Valentine’s day

February 13, 2010

This is the first time I am trying a fiction in Romance. Let me know how is this one.


6 months before…

I was really excited as I am on the verge of entering totally new, fun and fancy world of college. I was waiting outside the auditorium to be called up and there came a voice from behind,

“Is this the line for the freshers?” which rung through my ears. I turned back to answer and little I know I am going to loss myself at that moment. ‘Yes’, I said and I couldn’t take eyes off of my angel whom I am seeing for the first time. She was dressed up in orange colour chudithar. I wanted to ask her name. While my brain was resuming its function after the sweet shock to order my mouth to ask her name, somebody yelled, ‘Venkat’. Damn!!! I hate my name now.  What an inappropriate time to call out!!!

I went in. After a guy entered and took the seat next to me, she too came in and sat behind me. It seemed like her name too something which starts with ‘V’. The induction programme was done within an hour, I got to know about it as all stood up and clapped else I would have been thinking about how to introduce myself to her for some more time.

As I turned back to start a conversation, she already turned her back to me. Hmmm… Another disappointment. I followed the professor whom I was asked to and my eyes lit up when I have seen her. She is walking front of all. We entered into the classroom and I took a seat in a hurry. As I scanned through the class she sat adjacent to me. We are asked to introduce ourselves. Suddenly one of the boring customs of the first day of school/college sounded really interesting to me. And there she told her name..


I suddenly skimmed through my brain to know its meaning. It meant ‘Surprise’ or different. Yes, she was indeed a surprise and different too.  I wanted to share my excitement with somebody but couldn’t do so as I barely know anyone here in this class.

The next few days went with I am just seeing her and her sweet acts without any conversation as each of my act turned to be futile. The moment presented itself as we both were in the same batch in Physics lab as we are divided according to our role numbers. Suddenly I felt like loving my name more than ever.

After we settled down there, she herself initiated the conversation,

“Hi..” She said sweetly.

For that single Hi I wanted to speak endlessly with her… but all I could muster was single Hi in a pathetic tone.

Surely we found 100 or 1000 words short in front of our loving girl. The conversation went on and my mind stopped thinking about the experiment ‘The vernier Caliper’ to be done. But she seemed to be really good in doing it. At times taught me too what she is doing. All I managed to do is copy those results from her at the end of the lab.

After finishing that, I mustered to come out of the dream and felt like words won’t fool me at that time.

But how to start, I pondered over. After a lot of thought I started it in an appreciative tone.

“You seem to be good in doing this experiment”

“I have already done this last year”, she said politely and am I forgot to mention that answer is also sweet.

Even though I know it’s a 12th standard experiment, I asked, “Oh!!! Are you doing the 1st year of Engg. for the second year???”

It’s a lame joke but I started to laugh saying that and she joined me. I stopped laughing and started to admire her beautiful laugh.

All through that I was thinking whether I can ask her phone number.

The conversation went on but I don’t remember much but she is very much concerned about her studies and I am about her. Did she sensed what’s in my mind? She gave her phone number. She is too cautious about that and told me not to give it to anybody. Surely I am not going to give to anybody. I gave my number too.

The lab period ended and it’s like ending of an epic for me as I managed to talk a little with the girl I am in love.

I wanted to send a SMS to her and have a chat. But as I don’t know how she will react I waited for a message from her. But there is none on that day and I started to worry on what she would have thought about me.

After 2 days I received a forwarded SMS from her with a good night message. I am in heaven now. I typed down ‘Good night and sweet dreams’ and pressed the send button. That’s the start. I was then wishing her for all the changes in time, “Good morning’, ‘Good afternoon’, ‘Good evening’ and ‘Good night’ and I cursed why there is only 4.

Suddenly the songs which are sounded crap to me some months before started to look like they are written for me. Among one is,

‘Vizhi moodi yosithal angeyum vandhai munne munne’ (When I closed my eyes to think, you came there too).[Link to song is at the end].

Our conversation continued in our labs and also occasionally in classroom. As I talked more and more to her, I wanted to tell my love to her. But something or other made me to postpone it. And I decided to see her and tell her on the Valentine’s Day.

Yesterday night, our usual chatting was on and when the clock is about to hit 11 I wanted to tell her that I like to see her on Sunday.

‘So when are you going to sleep?’ I asked

‘Maybe in 10 minutes’ she replied.

Next one came from her…

‘I want to see you on Sunday’ it said. My heart started to beat more than it beats if I ran as fast as I can. Why she want to see me on that day.

I wanted to tell that I too wanted to see her on that day, but I didn’t.

‘Oh fine. Where?’ I replied without showing any signs of excitement.

‘In CCD in Anna nagar… ok I am feeling sleepy now… Good night. Chill dreams’

‘Good night’, I replied but I am fully awake now and I am thinking of 2 things. ‘How I am going to propose to her and

Why she wanted to see me?’

And I slept.

On the number of brick bats I am going to get for this one, I will decide on whether to go on with the second part or not 🙂 🙂
