Ek choti si love story - Part I
As sameer waited, he saw Janice coming towards the cafe. His heart beats started getting faster, as she came closeby. She hugged him and sat down. His hands were cold, words were broken, eyes wandering. He somehow silenced his anxiety and gathered the courage to say, " I want to tell u something important, really important" . She asked, " What is it" . Sameer looked lost for words. He bravely muttered " I love u" . Janice dint hear it properly, So she asked " what did u say?" . He said it again with all the guts in his body " I said I love u. and im pretty serious about u. I know this might come as a surprise to u but im really crazy about u. Ever since i saw u the first time, the world around me has come to a standstill. Nothing seems real to me except u. Logics have lost their meaning. Its just ur name on my mind all the time". Janice was taken aback and was angry, but at the same time, was impressed by all the good things sameer said " OMG, this is hard to believe, i dont know what to say". Sameer said "theres no hurry take ur time to decide" . " Thers nothing to decide, we can't go out. U r like 6 years younger to me, its weird. I always considered u as a good friend" Janice said.
Sameer said "Whos to decide how much age difference should be there to date? I'l keep u very happy, more happy than a princess, I'l always be there when u need someone to talk to. If i can't wipe ur tears, I'l cry with u. If i can't make u laugh, I'l do things to make u laugh, I'l do whatever u want. Please don't say" . Sameer dint want to hear a "NO".
Janice said, " Its not about who says, im not comfortable with a guy who is so younger to me. And im sure u will make a good partner. Only of u were a few years older, maybe i would have considered it". " Please sameer, lets not spoil this gud friendship we have". Sameer was so dejected, almost a tear came down his full eyes. He smiled sportingly and said "ok" . They had a chat for a while and both of them left to their respective homes.
Sameer was devastated. His whole world had fallen in front of his eyes. He was so madly in love with her. He dint know what to do. He lied down in his bed thinking, how can i ever get over this. Over the next few weeks, he spent his time convincing janice about his love for her. But she always complained about the age. difference. The whole scenario had taken a real toll on sameer. He coudn't eat, sleep, lost his sense of living. He was miserable. Janice stopped talking to him. He felt more and more weak mentally, physically.
One day, he took a very drastic step, he decided to end his life after jumping from a cliff.. He went to a nearby hills and climbed to the top. As he was climbing, He noticed some watch buried in between stones. There was something peculiar about it. As it was dawn, the watch had a bluish glow in dark. It was the last thing he wanted at this moment of time. Still something made him pick up the watch. He wore it. It had some weird dials. It dint have the normal hours and minutes hands. It had some kind of 6 figure digital display. He tried to figure it out what is it. He then opened the back panel of the watch. There were some small engravings in the panel. He coudn't read what was written as the letters were very small. The curiosity took him home to find out what was written. He took a magnifying glass and tried reading it, It was some ancient indian language.
After days of searching internet and ancient history books, he came to know that, it was some dravidian language called 'brahui' spoken in then balochistan. It read 'when rays of light passes through the device into someone's body, there is a series of reactions in the body, which ages or rejuvenates our body cells effectively making us young or old'. Sameer's excitement was flowing out of his face. His first thought was i'l become elder and then janice would accept me. Well was a crazy thought, but not for sameer, he was dead serious.
There were 2 buttons in the device up and down. He went outside, stood straight down the ray of sunlight. and he reluctantly pressed the down button and bang !! Something weird started happening, sameer felt this anguishing pain of stretching of all parts of the body. Within few minutes, he felt unconscious. A passerby, seeing him unconscious, took him to a nearest shop, sprinkled some water on his face. He was slowly regaining consciousness, locals tarted asking him, "kya hua bhai, tum tik to ho" ( what happened?, r u ok?) . To avoid too much of commotion he just said, " kuch nai fisal gaya" (nothing, i just slipped). " fisal gaye aise kaise fisal gaye? itne bade aadmi ho dikhta nai kya?" (how can u slip, u're such a grown up man, can't u see and walk) a passerby said angrily. Then sameer asked astonishingly, "mein bada aadmi" ( me a grown up man?). People looked at him as he was mad. He asked for a mirror in the house. He couldn't believe his eyes. he was a handsome 28 year old now. He confirmed what year it is ? So time time space continuum was intact, only he had grown older,handsome and confident. He thanked god for giving him such a boon. He couldn't wait to go and tell janice. This time he was going to propose as a grown up man, not that naive 18 year old. He got all dressed up looking fit and fine, picked up some flowers, called janice and sat in the same coffee house. As he was waiting for janice, he thought to himself , how fortunate he was that god showed him the path.
WILL SAMEER BE ABLE TO PROPOSE TO JANICE AGAIN? WILL SHE SAY YES? FOR MORE WAIT FOR THE 3RD AND FINALE EPISODE :)
