…..I don’t know where we were heading but it was very musing for me but it was my gut feeling saying “It’s gonna be whimsical”. Now I have nowhere to escape so I was ready to face what’s coming up next.
Me- At least give me a hint where we’re heading…
She- I know you, okay…you are very good at spoiling surprises but with time I also know how to tackle your gimmick.
Me- So it’s better for me to go with the flow and keep my mouth shut.
She- No no no.. … keep talking to me except where we are heading…your silence kills the surroundings don’t you know that…
(I know she was the queen of sarcasm all she meant was I talk a lot…like talkative Donald Duck or Goofy.)
Me(being sarcastic)- hahaaahaahaa… thanks a bunch lady you just made my day.
We don’t belong to this planet that was sure because we never talk straightforward to each other our conversation revolves around metaphors, sarcasm, the figure of speech etc. That’s was one of the ridiculous things about our friendship which made us unique.
We parked the car and started heading to a quite creative restaurant from outside and bit fancy.
She- So let’s go then….this gonna be an epic shit of your life.
Me- Wait…. what?…..
Before I could ask anything further there we were an appropriately insane interior, wall reflecting proficiency of virtuoso, innovative and creative sketches and art pieces all around was priceless, bands and musicians logos, frames, etc. It was much more than admiration and standing ovation.
Me-Wow!! Splendid… now that would I call top notch…exhilarated.
She- OMG…Thank you…thank you so much…at least once in this life time, you admired my talent on my face…candid.
Me- No way… I don’t believe that…these are not yours..(paused for a second ) Seriously…
She- Yeah….go ahead..go on.. I’m waiting for your costly words as I know your feelings are cheap. No offense.
Me- Wwweeeelllllllll…okay..honestly it’s like levitating someone’s spirit and vivifying every synapse of the brain to perplex the heart to be dumbfounded till the death.
She- Finally you proved that why you’re still single..
Me- Hey..that’s true… I’m not flattering you..It’s me being honest…
She- It’s me being kidding.
We both can fill our heart and brain with these ridiculous conversations but not our stomach at all. So we finished our meals and enjoying our desserts(no paradox) with cranberry juice(her favorite)
Me- How you come to know that I’m single.
She- Oh come on… I know you…you can’t be serious for more than 10 days even if by mistake you fall for someone or someone fall for you…
Me- And you think you know the reason for that…
She- Of course…You love to write, draw and sail beyond imagination when it comes to thoughts… you already have a perfect companion with you. So we can say that you’re committed with your life and you don’t need a body of flesh and bones…Isn’t it amazing?
Me- I don’t know how to say… but I agree with you…one day or the other we will get bored with each other…no matter what love yourself…You see lady this is all we need…a couple of desserts, a jar of cranberry juice and a little bit of conversation.
She(giggling)- Yeah.. right.
Right from school days we never squabble over petty things, never criticizes each other’s foibles; no blame games, no promises, no expectations and the most important one never judged each other. We know each other flaws and essence but never poke or admire each other for those respectively.
That makes it ridiculous. She left the school leaving no trace or sign. She just vanished and there was no hope whether anyone could meet her or not. She was clear in her mind that she is not the one who fall of someone. She has changed 5 schools already before she joined my school at that time. She is like keeps on moving, shifting and never settle kind of soul on this planet.
She- Okay now the surprise…are you ready music-maniac?
Me- Hell yes…
She- Today is Karaoke night. It’s a karaoke but with a twist…I will sing a song by your favorite singer and you have to sing a song of my favorite singer…easy.
Me- No it’s not that much easy…
She- Till you are breathing there will be difficulties and struggles.
She went to the stage without wasting much time she asked to set the song to the DJ as she was the owns the restaurant with her arts.
She(before started singing)- This song named is “Army- by Ellie Goulding”.
OMG, she was absolutely right about my favorite singer and the song depicts the rest story. It was silvery and honeyed when she was singing. After the song was over applauds and admirations were coming from everywhere even I was spellbound.
Now it’s my turn to guess it right. When a girl is already leading with perfect 10 you don’t want anything less than 10 at any cost. I replay my memory and all flashbacks to recall her favorite musician. The bulb glows and I ask DJ for my song, the thumbs up and played it.
Me- The song is “Yellow by Coldplay”…
I remembered she used to say that band has something more powerful than solo singer couldn’t have. It was her gimmicks to trap me and started thinking about the musician rather than the band or something. I’m not good at high note but I was able to get awarded with few claps in place of tomato soup or flying forks.
We paid the bill and started walking out of the restaurant but suddenly manager called us for some query.
She- Listen can you talk to manager whatever his query is and I will drive out the car from parking and will wait for you outside.
So I went to the manager and asked about the problem he said that by mistake bill was charged to us it was a farewell gift from the restaurant to her as it was her last night here in India and soon she will be leaving for California to pursue Arts and Music.
I walked out of that place and waiting for her outside and later on a boy come up to me with a page. World’s smallest but you can sum up the whole life on that page. “Life goes on, you know” Miss Rebellious.
I have no regrets and not yearning to go back in time and change everything. Our friendship or conversation never started with Hii or Hello….and it’s not meant to end with goodbye though. She was always a mystery to me which I don’t want to get revealed. We never exchanged our contact no. and never became a friend on any social sites(so no following request, likes, tagging, comments). About us, all the things were ridiculous as we are not normal at all but my mate was hilarious that I was sure.
