Salaam everyone… How are you all?? This is the first instalment of “That One Thing”… As I said this is a story based on college life, the conversations and writing style can go little informal compared to my other shots, so you people have to bear me through this… Please ignore any typos or grammatical mistakes… Happy reading… 😀
A girl of 18 years is teaching in a class. Then an office boy along with a guy tries to enter the room. The girl who saw this stopped the office boy and yelled at him.
How dare you enter my classroom without my permission? And who is he?’
Madam!! He is a new student, joined only today, so Principal Sir asked me to drop him to the class. I didn’t know you will be so annoyed with this.’
Oh!! Okay. He may be a new student but he is late to my class, so he will have to wait till the class session is over.’
But Madam!! Principal Sir….’
Principal Sir ko mai bataa doongi. Now your work is over and you can go (pointing her index finger to the new student) and YOU stand outside the classroom itself.’
Office boy made his way to Principal’s office and the new student obeyed the girl’s word, stood outside the class and thought “How can she be a lecturer? Kya pataa, these days’ people are finishing off their studies at a small age, maybe she belongs to the same category. But she is damn gorgeous; if she is not a lecturer then I would have definitely made my way with her.”
The girl resumed the class and asked the students….
So where are we?’
In class.’ Came a voice.
She knew the owner of that voice and so she answered…
Oh really!! I thought you were on moon and I need to bring you back here and continue my lesson.’
The whole class knew how sarcastic she can become if they didn’t leave the topic there, so kept mum.
After the class the girl allowed the new student into the classroom and class was dispersed for the break. She came to the boy who made the comment earlier and spoke…
So brother!!How was it?’
This conversation was disturbed by a voice from behind.
Ms. Radhika Mishra!!!’
The girl jumped from her place and turned to see Principal Sir fuming in anger.
Ms. Radhika Mishra. What do you think you are doing?’
Sir!! I’m just talking.’
(Flabbergasted) What??(Coming to sense the meaning of her words) I’m talking about the scene you have created to allow the new student in to class.’
Sir!! He is late to class, so I told him to wait outside the classroom.’
Look who’s talking. The person who comes to class in half sleep and sleeps all the while in the first session of the class. Do you know who he is?’
Radhika with a pout on her face murmured “Human.” It was audible only to the boy beside her. He listened to the word and laughed.
Principal who is out of patience now shout on the boy.
Neil!!What’s so funny in it?’
Sir!! Nothing… She is responsible for this.’ Said Neil pointing his finger towards Radhika like a KG student who was caught by his teacher for a mischief with his partner.
Radhika now gulped hard and glared Neil. Then a weird and naughty idea struck her mind.
OMG!! Carrot!! Jaadooo…’ exclaimed Radhika and winked at Neil.
No one understood those code words except Neil and Radhika. Neil took the cue and at once both Neil and Radhika jumped in their places, reached the new student and started searching him. As Radhika was unable to reach his height, she stood on the nearby chair and started searching his hair. In the meanwhile she shouted at Samaira, her best friend and roommate to open the curtains and windows. Sam did the same. Now Principal Sir is totally out of patience and shouted at the trio.
What are you people trying to do?’
Sir, you asked us right “Do we know him?” we don’t know him and moreover our doubt is he may be an alien. You gave us his intro in such a way that he is Rajni Kanth. To clear our doubts we are searching him. And Jaadoo needs sunlight to survive Sir.’ Said Radhika earning a chuckle from the new student whose hairstyle was ruined completely by Radhika. [Note: Radhika is still standing on the chair 😉 ]
Impossible. You guys’ are really impossible. Tum kabhi nahin sudharogi… Anyways he is new student Arjun, he got the transfer from other state due to some personal reasons. Hope you guys’ will receive him properly. (Hitting his forehead with his right hand) What am I even saying!!Right now I saw how you guys’ received him. (To Arjun) Arjun!!! This naughty funky girl is Radhika, this boy (pointing to Neil) is Neil, her brother and best friend. The girl who opened the windows (pointing to Samaira) she is Samaira, partner in crime for these two idiots. Over all they are named as 3 idiots by all of us and they all are your classmates. Some lecturer assigned Radhika to give a seminar and have gone for some other college work. And she spoiled all of that.’
Arjun who got a relief from Principal’s words by listening Radhika to be a student thanked God million times in his heart.
There is no need to worry Sir. I absolutely loved Radhika’s punishment. In fact I liked her seminar too.’
RaNeSam who didn’t expect this turned to Arjun with a shocked expression on their faces and mouths opened wide in a way an elephant can fit in that.
Don’t worry guys’… I’ll not eat you and you can close your mouths or else bacteria may enter your mouths and Jaadoo should have to help you clean that.’ Said Arjun and winked at Radhika.
Okay then!! If you have no problem with it, then I’m tension free. But I’m warning you please be careful with these three idiots.’ Said Principal pointing RaNeSam.
Okay Sir… Don’t worry I’ll take care and they are my friends now, how can I stay away from them?’
This is another big blow to the three idiots, but there is some pain in Arjun’s eyes and Neil noticed that, so he thought to make Arjun his friend and also to clear that pain.
Sir!! Please be at peace. As Arjun said we are his friends now. So we’ll handle this matter.’ Said Neil to the Principal.
Principal Sir knew Neil is a sensible guy, and now he assured him of Arjun’s safety, so he can be free of worries.
Okay Neil… Now I’m leaving. Take care of him and save him from these two devils.’ Said Principal Sir pointing toward RaSam.
Sure Sir.’ Said Neil grinning by listening to the word “devils.”
Radhika is on the verge of breaking something by listening to the same word but controlled herself.
Principal Sir left the classroom, after that all the four (Arjun, Neil, Radhika and Samaira) formed a group and chit chatted till the next class started.
There started their beautiful bond of friendship which is going to last forever and stay strong even after a big storm that’s gonna hit them after some years.
Okay this is the first instalment of this SS, I know it’s short but kya kare I’ve to stop it here as next one is somewhat crucial and has to be in the same chapter. In the next chapter you will see how RaNeSam bond has got its foundation; Arjun’s new avatar and also why Rads named him “Devil” [Many of you guessed it correct… I’m really really proud of you girls… 😀 😉 ]. Radhika calls Neil as “Carrot”, why?? (Any guesses) Why did Arjun have his transfer from another state??
For those who didn’t understand what “Jaadoo” is—Jaadoo is a fictional character in movie “Koi Mil Gaya”. He is an alien and was accidently left behind on Earth by its spaceship members. He survives on sunlight and also an intelligent being. So Radhika being naughty girl thought to escape the scolding from Principal Sir by diverting him in this way. 😉
About the course these people are studying is the integration course of B.Tech and MBA of 5 years and they all are in second year. This is a teenage love story but their love runs deeper than one can imagine. [I had to say this because I got black and blue from my little sis for making it a teenage love story…Poor me… 🙁 ]
I’m going to start writing my next shot of THWH series after posting this chapter… So sorry for making you all wait for a long time. 🙁 For the upcoming shot I’ll post only the story and the facts will be posted in the comments section some other day as my life is going to be hectic for a while…
I want a suggestion— Do you want me to write translations for Hindi sentences I use in braces? I write only few sentences in Hindi to maintain the essence but if you want me to write the translations, I’ll write from next shot for sure… I thought of asking this from a very long time but forgot every single time… 😛
Below is the link to prologue and blurb of this SS:
How did you like naughty RaNeSam[Of course Arjun is no less and how can I leave him alone, you guys already know my fascination towards this character… 😀 ]? What are your opinions about Arjun’s thoughts?
And I’m really sorry if it is not up to your expectations…
