Life seems to be unjust sometimes. These days it has brought upon me such a dilemma , the anxiety of which has led me to spend the past fortnight with sleeplessness. That’s the reason why I called upon Sooraiya my best friend. Well if you are thinking that she’s some sort of mind counsellor and stuff, then… you are totally wrong. She’s a dietician, but the only person in my life who will hear me out without any judgement.
I think I can hear the doorbell ring she’s here then.
” Ah Soo come in “, as always she has a perfect smile tucked on her lips. With a figure and face so model perfect she could make very well pose as cover girl for fashion magazines.
” So what have been upto “, she asked me placing her purse on the table , sprawling on my sofa. ” Don’t tell me It’s unlady-like “, she warned me, is my grumpiness that obviously I twirked my brow.
“Seat as you wish and before I begin with my dilemma, let me get us some tea “, I went over to the kitchen while she flipped through the pages of OUTLOOK.
” Now tell me what’s been bothering you for so long? ” she asked in between her sips.
I don’t know how to answer this, its the one million dollar question I’ve been asking myself “ Well.. Umm..it’s my neighbor “, I answered staring blankly at her.
” What about him “? She asked while munching on a Pakora .
” It’s only a month that I shifted here and within these few days I feel so close to him, no don’t interrupt “, I warned her before she could start her interrogation regarding the guy.
” I know it’s not infatuation nor lust, I just feel strongly for him “, I sighed.
” Are you having second thoughts on Rishabh “? she asked me, a look of anxiety washed over her face.
“Yes “. She didn’t look surprised with my answer ” For how long “?
” From the day we first met “.
She started to chuckle “I knew it, that guy wasn’t much good for you anyways “.
I couldn’t contradict her, she was right. ” So tell me more about the man in question “, I knew who she was referring to.
” He’s a good company, I wish I could stop my ever traitorous heart which keeps on beating rapidly whenever he’s near. I can’t keep myself composed anymore “.
“But “? Soo always asked the right question.
“He isn’t interested in me “, I scowled ” doesn’t even count me as a friend, Soo “.
She gave me a quick hug ” Look this guy wants you or not I don’t know, What I know is you want him and already hinted him on that. So..the ball is on his court now. If he wants to act on it, he will. Otherwise my sweet friend we got a lot more options, we aren’t 80 yet. Being twenty something we still have lot more chances “.
This made me giggle she really knows how to make me feel better.
