I thought it would be the best way to escape. I logged out from my account but was willing to log in into her heart.
Throughout the night this thing kept moving in mind that how can I be so idiotic or shameless to a girl with whom I was talking for the first time. May be it was her beauty that mesmerized my mind or it may be her simplicity that affected my words. Whatever be the reason, but it was the first time when I understood the meaning of the words “Love is in air.”<3<3. This may look too early for being like love, but I know this is what a boy feels when he first time feels that kind of attraction with a girl. Same was the case with me. Anyways…. With a thought of having her in my dreams this time too, I went to sleep that night, but she kept me awake for long.
The next morning in the college I tried to escape from her eyes somehow, but when I found that her eyes are looking for me, I gathered some courage and approached her with a foolish smile.
“Thanks for the timetable yaar. Because of you only I came here in time today.”
“Oh. Never mind. You are always welcomed. And one more thing, Thanks and Sorry looks cheap between friends. Better drop it when you are with me.”
Me blushing and felling relaxed after her words “Ahh… You mean… Mera matlab hai ki…. Are we friends? ”
“I think we are or we can. But if you want then you can take time to think over it again.”
“No no. It’s my pleasure to have you as my friend. The only thing that I was worried about is my image that I have made in front of you with my yesterday’s words. I thought you won’t talk to me after that.”
“Hmm….That was too surprising for me too. But I know you are not of that kind. So leave it there and move on.”
“Ya. Actually it’s my first ever attract… sorry interaction with a girl……………… So was a bit confused.”
As soon as I somehow completed my sentence I zipped my lips hard enough to prevent anymore slip of words. But I noticed a hidden smile on her face with that.
“Ok then. Go get your lunch. See you in the lab. Byeeeeeeeeeeee”.
“Bye. See you there. ”
While in my way to mess I remembered few tips of Rahul regarding How to know a girl likes you or not. Since he is a bit experienced in these matters, I keep asking him about these stuffs. So yesterday when I had enquired him about “How to know a girl likes you or not”, his very first words were: “You can never come to know that until the girl herself want you to know.” But still when I insisted to tell at least something or some signs of liking, he told me some of these tips:
-Girls will never let you know that they like you. You have to sense it from their activities and words.
When I enquired what type of activities, he told
-If a girl smiles more than she speaks when she is with you.
-If she uses Hiiiiiiiii/Byeeeeeeeeeeeee/BByeeeee or some other awkward forms other than simple Hi/Bye.
I don’t know about other tips, but my mind got stuck at the last one. Then I went in flashback to confirm what she said to me when she departed. And then just like in TV serials, when someone slaps the other its noise can be heard 10 times, her words were pounding my head “Byeeeeeeeeeee” “Byeeeeeeeeeee” “Byeeeeeeeeeee” “Byeeeeeeeeeee” “Byeeeeeeeeeee”…………………..
Now should I take it as a signal as Rahul suggested, or consider it as a simple Bye clipping ending “eeeeeeeee’s” coz Rahul also suggested me not to hurry with these signals in judging a girl as they are too complicated to be understood. So I thought of giving her a signal from my side instead of waiting for her.
So as I reached to attend Lab, I sat at my place beside her and said “Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii…………..” until I squeezed my whole breathe. She looked at me surprisingly and reacted in a strange way that wasn’t expected. Apart from her, many others who were around started staring at me as if I have snatched their lab equipments for doing experiments. Well I took it as an insult to my self-respect and
didn’t say a word after that and moved to my experiment in hurry. Puja realized that she had reacted in a wrong way and I got hurt with that. So she tried to pull my attention to other things. But I was not in a mood to stay there anymore. So I quickly completed my practical and left the lab.
At hostel that night Rahul came to me and said:
“What were you trying to do in the Lab with your long lasting Hiiii..?”
“Yaar I thought that if her signals are confusing me, I should give her signals from my side that I like her. She must have tried to understand that instead of reacting in a way that made fun of me in front of the whole class.
Rahul laughed at me for some time and then said:
“You are a naive for these things. Damn it. Girls use these signals not boys. If you address a girl with Hiiiiii/Byeeeee or with a foolish smile on your idiotic face all the time, then they will treat you in some other way but not in the way you wanted.”
“Then you tell me Rahul what should I do? Should I tell her about my feelings rite now or should I wait until her next signal.”
“Look. Boys must not pretend to be sweet and cute if they want to impress a girl. Rather they should be like macho man and must not give that girl much importance otherwise she might take you as a despo guy running to make a girlfriend after being in a college. Ignore her for some time and then see, she herself will approach you.”
