RJ stood on the dais in the classroom lost into thoughts. He recollected how Prats, Ste and Mr. RiverSoul literally pushed him onto the dais to write a computer program. He looked at Ste, who was laughing like a mad dog. He turned to Prats and saw a sense of pride on her face. Then he managed a glance towards Mr. RiverSoul who had a ‘gold-teeth’ exhibition inside his mouth and was staring like a pissed-off cop. RJ dint know an iota about computer programming.
“Come on. Hurry up. Everyone are waiting.” Mr.RiverSoul warned. RJ thought about running away from the classroom, but that would only make him a joker, so refrained. Time was running out. If he was a girl he would have cried out loud, but somewhere he was sure for himself that he was a guy.
“I said- Start.” Mr. RiverSoul shouted above his voice.
RJ fainted and fell on to the ground at once. Ste, after laughing his life out, was almost under the bench when he noticed his friend RJ collapse. He stood on the bench with his hands on his head. Mr. RiverSoul couldn’t understand what had happened and was watching it with shock with his mouth open wider this time making the gold-exhibition open for public. Prats’ face was wet with sweat and tears as she thought it was due to her that this happened.
Anyway, Mr.RiverSoul closed the exhibition and hurried to RJ and sprinkled water on him. There was no response from RJ. Mr. RiverSoul got tensed and ran outside to bring someone for assistance. Meanwhile, Ste came running to RJ and looked at him like how people would peep into a binoculars. RJ all of a sudden opened his eyes, winked and said to Ste- “Come on yaar, lets run out of the class.”
“What? What the hell? Was all this acting? You asshole… Mr. RiverSoul will screw you.” Ste said trying to come to terms with the fact.
“What will he do man? What will a man whose soul is in the river do uh? Come on, lets get out.” RJ stood up. They both, within a flash ran out of the classroom. Kajal had become a fan of these two. Prats rubbed her eyes and pinched herself after what she had just witnessed. Chirag stood up and clapped hands.
Outside, Ste and RJ wandered aimlessly. They spotted Priyanka who had bunked the class (famous for it) sitting under a tree practicing yoga with her laptop. They met each other and shook hands. Ste suggested that they should go have something to eat and all the three left to a nearby restaurant.
As they reached the restaurant, RJ noticed that it was closed.
“Why the hell is this closed?” RJ asked Ste and Pri.
A voice from behind said- “ The hotel’s staff have gone for lunch. So closed.”
Initially he said “Okay” but then realized what a stupid logic it was. What sense does it make if the hotel is closed for lunch. He turned around to have a look at the dumb man who had said that, but to his shock it was none other than Mr.RiverSoul. Priyanka had escaped from sight. Mr. RiverSoul held both their collars and dragged them back to the college.
There he said- “ Go meet the Principal and get a written permission. Until that you will not be allowed into the class.”
Both RJ and Ste, for the third time in the day entered the principal room. Princi Mr.Sandeep Balan was again standing in the same fashion, looking out of the window with his hands on his hips. RJ and Ste noticed the Principal’s ‘letter-head’ on his table and thought about stealing it so that they could write anything they wished to. RJ carefully picked it up and just as they thought they had achieved it, Ste planted his foot on a pen, tripped and fell directly on Mr.Sandeep Balan and hence both had a filmi fall. RJ dint know whether to laugh, cry or run after watching the scene. Ste slept horizontally over Mr. Sandeep Balan.
