~ Our Destiny - 1

It was already 7 in the morning. My Phone started ringing again for the 4th time, I guess. I was too tired to go and pick it. Finally, it stopped.
It started ringing again.
Me, "Oh, not again."
I cursed the caller as I went and picked the call. I regretted it as soon as I saw the name of the caller. It was from my friend Preethi.

Me, "Hey, Good morning."

Preethi, "Happy New year sadz. Are you still sleeping ? Get ready. We have plans."

I was drifting back to my past. Memories of him started flowing in and I lost track of what was happening.

"Hey, are you still there? Are you getting ready? Or you want us to come there? " ,she yelled at me.

Me, "Uh, no. I will be there in your home by 9. See you there. Happy new year. And thanks for the wake up call. Take care."

Preethi, "Yea ok dear. See you soon. Take care."

She was my Bestie from my school days. She was the one who was always there for me. And now she is doing all that she can to keep me busy. To keep me from thinking about him. 

I got ready as soon as I could and went to Preethi's home. The girls were already there ~ Preethi, Shwetha, Rithi and Deepika. We, five of us always hang out together. And, this would be the last new year we celebrate as students. This is our final year in college.

"Happy New year", they shouted in chorus. All I could do was laugh and I wished them back.

We had our breakfast at her home and started for the plaza. We had booked tickets for the Narnia. 

After the movie and lunch we went to the beach, gossiping about all the stuff in the town. 

And then to the final destination for the day ~ Cafe Coffee Day. 

We were having fun out there by planning our days for the coming months.

Preethi was having her Cappuccino. And suddenly it happened again. 

Me, "Careful Preethi. You are going to break that glass." 

And yes, she did just seconds later. A little boy aged 5 from the next table was playing with a ball which hit Preethi's hand. And she dropped the glass.

And then, the boy's parents were endlessly apologizing to Preethi. And people from CCD were cleaning the mess. But I was somewhere else. In a distant world. His thoughts were again flowing in. And Preethi was staring at me.

P.S.: This is purely a fiction :P .
