Soumya turned around to face Rudra. She had a composed expression on and had hidden her smile pretty well. He had messed with her in the morning and now it was her turn.
“Yeah, the washroom is just around the corner. Second door on the left. There is no sign board outside since the renovation is going on.”
She said oh-so- innocently. Rudra looked at her and nodded.
“Thanks.” Rudra said and turned around to go in the said direction.
Soumya smiled as she saw him leave. She waited for about 2 mins and then followed the direction he had gone. The room she had directed to him was actually a girl’s washroom. The sign board was missing as the college was getting rennovated. She had used the advantage of this opportunity to fool him.
“You take that long hair guy, I’ll take the Mr. Akddu !!” Anika muttered to Ishana, who responded back saying, “I’ll go right, you go left.”
Anika and Ishana nodded to each other, and splitted the brothers apart so that their prank remains safe.
Ishana and Om started with the Electronics department located in the right side of the building, she needed to just put the To-Stick note on his back. But how ?!! Just then an idea popped up in her brain.
“That is the main computer room,” she said pointing to the room on the right diverting him from her actions.
She carefully peeled the sticky note from the back of her phone case, and pretended to trip, taking support from his shoulder. His eyes locked hers, while his hand on her arm tightened, stiffening her body from placing the note. She kept his eyes locked in hers, as she made her mind up to stick the note to his hoodie.
The note read, I’M SINGLE, LOOKING FOR A DATE.
She gently averted her eyes of his, making him realize their position and moved away. To Ishana’s amusement he didn’t have any clue about the note, both of them kept on walking.
“Turn right, from here starts the mechanical department.” she said as they took a turn, walking into a hallway full of people who are bound to notice the note on his back.
The effect was rather quick, as a girl, medium in height, called Om from behind. Om turned around swiftly, followed by Ishana, while the girl made her way to them.
“Hey, I’m single too,” she said shyly, while Om looked on confused.
“Sorry ?!!” he replied back puzzled.
She looked at him and giggled to herself, “Here, take my number.” The girl grabbed Om’s hand and wrote her number all over his right arm with a bold large black marker. Om looked on extremely shocked as the girl mouthed call me and left the hall.
Ishana’s face filled with laughter, which she was trying to hide with great efforts.
Just as Ishana managed to control her laughter, another girl came up from the behind and said, “Do you like rock music or soft music ?!!”
“Soft music.” Om responded with a complete blank expression on his face. While Ishana had a grin plastered on her face.
“Long drive or candle light dinner ?!!” the girl asked further.
“Long drive.” Om answered firmly, Ishana was surprised to hear his answer. Long drive ?!! He seemed more of a candle light dinner person to her.
“Okay, we match, here is my number, call me when you can.”The girl said enthusiastically, as she hastily snatched the phone from his hand and dialed her number in.
“But !!” Om tried to stop her, but all his efforts flew in vain, a shrill went across his spine as he heard,the girl say, “Bye lover boy !!”
“What was that ?!!” Om asked suspiciously to Ishana, who shrugged unknowingly before she burst into laughter, as Om glared at her in extreme anger.
Even with Ishana sensing Om’s fierce anger, right on his nose, she didn’t stop laughing, as she took a moment to think how this is going with Anika.
Anika’s smile was growing mischievous by the each passing minute.
Fortunately, Shivaay was absolutely clueless about the note, which read,”YOU ARE INVITED TO MY PARTY, AT 7, SEE YOU THERE !!” on his back.
They walked past the chemistry hallway which was crowded with freshers. This was going to be extremely fun for Anika, who sagged back her shoulders relieved.
She stood a bit backward than Shivaay, to see whether everyone were looking at the Note or not. And everyone was, they were chattering with their friends about the note too.
“Where is your house located ?!!” A girl arrived near them.
“What ?!!” Shivaay asked confused, with a huge amount of shock in his voice.
“Your house address dude,” the girl asked him more loudly.
“It is the first villa on the outskirts of the main city, The Oberoi villa, near the famous wineyard.” he replied firmly,looking at Anika who was standing behind the girl, the girl nodded at him gently and said.
“Great !! See you at 7 then,”
“Okay,” Shivaay mouthed out as he scanned deeply through Anika’s eyes.
Anika didn’t bother to take her gaze off, even though she understood he was scanning her eyes like a machine, taking all the info he could get out of her.
Her boldness started to amaze him, nobody had ever looked directly in his eyes. But then his eyes turned cold as he realized what he said to the girl.
“Wait, what ?!!” Shivaay shouted and turned around to ask the girl but she had disappeared in the crowd.
Anika rolled her eyes by seeing his anger and ruthlessness, somebody had to teach him manners, especially how to talk to girls. His eyes kept looking at her suspiciously, while she carried on her innocent face.
Her body started to heat up as his stare fell on her, this was the first time someone had the guts to look at her so intently, without any hesitation. She finally lifted her eyes of his, moving her eyes to something else, cooling her body down, when another boy came from across the hall came towards them.
“See you at your party !!” he briskly said and backslapped Shivaay on his back.
“Party ?!!” Shivaay blurted out totally confused.
“Which playlist do you want me to play, old or new ?!!” a guy wearing headphones called out.
“What ?!!” Shivaay asked him.
“New it is,” the guy replied for him and left.
Shivaay attempted to explain that he was not going to have a party, but it was way too late. The news spread like wildfire, with everyone in the campus coming to his ‘so called party.’
He glanced back at Anika who was trying very hard to control her laughter.
Soumya had followed Rudra, and now she stood at the corner of the corridoor as he entered the girls washroom. The moment he stepped inside and put his one foot forward, loud shouts, screams and curses could be heard.
He immediately turned around and started running. His face depicted complete horror. After about 5 secs, she saw some girls running after him. The girls finally caught up with him and started beating him with their handbags.
After a lot of apologies from him and giving him cold stares, the girls let go off him. Soumya had been standing in the same place and witnesing all of this. When it went out of her control, she started laughing out loud. Hearing the laughter, Rudra turned towards its source and found her standing there.
He narrowed his eyes and looked at her in complete anger !!
