Kavya quickly goes through her phonebook, calls up Nisha and waits until she hears the other line pick up.
“Nisha, I don’t know what to do, I really don’t. I love him so much and I don’t think he thinks of me that way. I mean, whenever I see him or think of him, I can’t help it; this smile comes across my face. Sometimes when he notices me smiling, he smiles back. That’s when my knees turn to jello and I get butterflies in my stomach. Nishant is so caring and considerate. Well, actually, I don’t deserve him. He’s too nice for me, I mean, look at all the girls that fall for him. I could never be one of those. They are all so pretty and bubbly and, and … But you know, whenever I think of him or see him, I can’t help it, I smile. He called me the other day about some homework. I made a complete fool of myself. I’m so embarrassed. I stuttered the whole time, but he was so sweet and just kept talking and making me feel better. He’s so perfect Nisha, I don’t deserve him, so why do I keep wishing and praying that he will notice me, why?............Nisha? Nisha are you there… HELLO?”
“This isn’t Nisha.”
Petrified, Kavya asks, “Who is this?”
“This is the guy whose smile turns your knees to jello and everything you just said, is what I’ve been wanting to say since the day I met you ... I am as crazy about you too Kavya; and I am Nishant not your friend Nisha.” :)
For some love is easy and quick – but for Nishant and Kavya this is the beginning of a lifelong relationship, or just the beginning of a flash fire that burnt itself out rather quickly, it was really beautiful with all the colors of love !!
