She was there looking etheral in moonlight. Her tresses which were once tied in a pony were left loose enough to create havoc in his mind. He went towards her with slow steps making sure not to leave a single chance to glance at her. “Who in this earth would be out of their house in this hour of night and that too munching on a ice cream” he asked her being shocked.
Anika was happily gulping her favorite ice cream when suddenly she heard a familiar voice. She turned back to face the same person who was extra careful about her, a few hours back. She mentally thanked god for sending someone or rather him there. She spoke “actually I was having a late shift so when I was returning home my champa stopped leaving me to wander. I saw a ice cream stand so began eating as my phone’s battery is also dead. But you know what this double sundae ice cream is super delicious, wanna have some..?” She told the last line being excited. He wondered what champa is ans asked her for which he received a big essay on her abilities. It was her scooty. She was a crazy girl. “No actually I don’t want I just came here to buy ice cream for…” He was interrupted in between by anika again. “Its okay whoever you want to buy ice cream at this night. But you also have to eat Mr Oberoi. Its super duper tasty” she said once again being in her own word. He asked “why you are calling me mr oberoi ? You are not at work. Call me shivaay.” He wanted to listen his name frim her sweet voice to check how his name sounds by a beautiful girl. She said “no i know you will come to ccd more often as i am good at making espresso. Sometimes i even try and you came that day only. You are lucky. I have to make a practice of of saying mr oberoi so a big no.” He nodded being sad.
He saw some ice cream in her nose, so with the tip of his thumb he wiped off this little puddle without thinking twice. She smiled. He said “come I will drop you.” “No, first let me finish this, its yummm.” He saw her childish behavior which was cute, no very cute and smiled.
Anika sat at the passenger seat on receiving a scolding from him that he is not a chauffeur. She was talking and talking countinously with him, narrating her day’s event. He kept on driving listening to her melodious voice which was now going little softer and softer. Suddenly he felt something on his shoulder. Her, she was sleeping on his shoulder being tired of the day’s event. He thanked god that he asked her address or else he would have to wake her up. She was looking like a baby while sleeping.
He reached her house but anika was still having a nice sleep with the bestest pillow ever. He called slowly “anika”… She was still asleep. He took his forefinger and started poking her lightly asking her to wake up. “Anika… Hi !! See your house has come..see na.” He tried everything. Shouted, shakes and what not but she being a kumbhkaran was fast asleep. He had only one thing left to do. He didn’t wanted to but didn’t had any option. He was always attracted to her but still only 2 days before they had met. He decided, breathed, muttered an apology to god and took his fingers to her neck and waist and….
Started tickling her. Gradually then vastly. She was laughing like a maniac. She in between her laughts said “stop it pls okay I m awake. No don’t.” He stopped thereafter being amused as well as happy on his mind for coming with a wonderful idea. He said “so what shall I do, you were sleeping, I tried everything but it was not possible to wake a kumbhkaram Like you.” He was annoyed. She said “oh I am sorry one minute what did you call kunbhkaran, don’t say I am not at work so you are also a baggad billa that too with kanji ankhein.” He was amused at the choice of her words and angry too as who could call the shivaay singh oberoi that and then decided to leave fighting at it was already late. She thanked him still muttering her new words from her dictionary.
Shivaay went home and then to Tia’s room but she asleep now. He covered her with a duvet and silently left from the room. He thought that “wow I went this late and Tia is sleeping.” His heart told “your efforts were not wasted you met her and soon the meetings will be more.”
