A Lot Can Happen Over Coffee

click below, to read the previous days incidents
Day 1..... Day 2.... Day 3

Day 4

Why am i in love with Chennai??? Yes love! Its the same Chennai that i used to crib about in my earlier posts....the same Chennai that i woke up to and cursed....the same Chennai heat that made my life miserable!

And now, suddenly, it wasn't all so bad. Love is too strong a word to express about Chennai so soon. But hell, its not hate too. More like shades of grey hovering between black and white. The weather seems contend to flirt with me for the time being. Good...i was loving it.

I rang her up in the evening. Poor gal was totally worn out. Had meetings and group discussions...One day i will have to get one of these...job thingys...*sigh*
It wasn't a surprise when she said she could meet. I was kinda hoping she would. :P

Went to t.nagar to pick her up. She was already there...patiently waiting...all signs of weariness gone.
'Kahe chale aaj?', i asked
'Anywhere....i have time til 9'
'Cafe Coffee Day?'
'umm...Isphani Center!'

We got hold of an auto and i let her do the girlie stuff. Males have a tendency to fall prey to girls when they bat their eyelashes at them....auto-wallas included. And soon enough...we were on our way!

It was a nice place. Atleast better than the rest of the CCD's i have been to in Chennai. She was damn hungry and i was damn happy...just to be there.
'I wanna eat everything...OMG...brownie.........', she gushed.

She ordered a chocolate fantasy with ice-cream while i just ordered what i nearly always drank there....Mochachilo!

'You better be prepared. You will be quite embarassed watching me eat chocolate', she warned beforehand.
I just stared at her naive, innocent face....wanting to pluck her cheeks.
When the fantasy arrived, she cut it into a tiny piece, closed her eyes and devoured it with such feeling and longing i never knew existed before.....Mmmmmm....the sweet sound of self-satisfaction escaped from her lips.
She looked at me and grinned.'Warned ye!'
She cut her second piece...and there she went again...She was completely oblivious to the fact that nearly all eyes and ears were pinned on her while she made those sexy noises. Watching her melt the cake in her mouth, felt like watching someone who was wrapped in their own personal ectasy.
Hell! If this was supposed to be embarassing than sweet God...i would rather be embarassed every single day.

Goosebumps threatened to erupt in me and i had to force my eyes away from her and concentrate on my own drink. Damn you hormones!

We chatted a lot.....correction....she chatted. I was quite happy to listen to her for a change. We talked about lotsa stuff...about everything.....our deepest secrets...to our favourites...blah blah blah.....
She stopped suddenly, the moment she realised i was completely lost in her eyes. She blushed a shade of red, paused for a second to collect her breath and then started again. I kept doing it intentionally a few times...jsut to see her blush and to make sure that i could still make her heart beat faster.
She grabbed and pulled me towards her....cupped my face in her hands and whispered...'FL..you are killing me!'
I pondered at her words.....If it was true, then i have been dead for quite some time now!

Dropped her home by 9.30. Didn't have to make promises, coz we knew we would be meeting again soon enough! Reached home and thought about her...hell! where was this gal all these years!???

She slept off early...i welcomed the dreams.
Somewhere in this mad city...a lot is happening over coffee....i am sure of that.

Love ye loads,
