naik: so many special people change!
me: so many lives are living strange
naik: where were you when while we were getting high?
me: wake up the dawn and ask her why
naik: dream a dream she never dies, wipe tha tear away now from her eye
me: why why why why
naik: i lou oasis!!!
me: dyu know why this song is so special to me?
naik: am i supposed to know?
naik: champagne supernova on repeat :P
me: same here
i'll tell story
me: i'm in mood to tell story
am in good mood to listen
so once upon a time
there was a girl, a very naive superficial girl
me: ah and so the girl-she has a very BAD COMPUTER BTW-the girl-not princess-girl
naik: there is a princess girl?
me: yeah...she had crushes on all these cute guys in school and used to attempt flirting..unsuccessfully...
NO THEN!! this is a fairytale madam
naik: oh wait.. sounds like someone i know..
me: with a real world twist of course;)
me: ah so...the princess girl girl...she had lotsa friends and all
me: but thats not important
see the thing is
me: she studied in this really small class
only 3 girls no boys
me: arts u know..sigh
me: but then she used to go for comp science with all the science guys
and she was the only girl there
i know arts with comp sci wierd no
me: anyway so she loved comp sci
she could escape
she would sit in front of the comp and dream off
me: and the teacher was a sweetheart
no not yet
i'm getting there
naik: was he hot?
me: I haven't got to the guy yet!!
and no he wasn't hot
oh the teacher lol..no!!
naik: ok..i was talking about teacher
me: he he
me: so the guy (since i spilled the beans already)
he wasn't hot
he still isnt
he is thin and pimply and well weird looking with glasses
the normal wayside geek
but of course, the sweetest sweetheat that no one understands
and the princess met him at comp class
and he was brilliant
and used to make her laugh
naik: aww.. btw i lou geeky guys!
me: i know!! me too!
well the princess girl dint
i mean she was still a superficial nonbitch at that time
but then she grew out of it
actually he grew her out of it!
me: i know
it's a love story for the books
but it was all too late
the loving i mean
it was after grad
and he was gone
to a faraway land called engineering
naik: oh man!
me: I know!
but the summer was good
the in between summer
they used to chat a lot
me: it was around this time two years ago
me: and one day..near book mark
the princess decided to be bold
she was beautiful as it is ;)
so she told him
in not so many words
but she told him
me: but not so yay
me: positive response came....love he called it..connection...so many things in common
...but he dint really really get it
being one of those true intellectual retards
who simply does not get a female heart
he was in love with someone else
the princess dint know
but she found out..later
but for a little while
just a little while
he made her believe there was something there
and she used to live in this fantasy world
she loved it there
and she wished..she still wishes sometimes..she could live there
naik: we all do :)
naik: (its happy sad)
me: so she let go..she had to...
naik: then what happened?
me: he said it reminded him of her
and she was awed
naik: what reminded him of her?
me: the song...this song
me: :) that had to mean lou
it just had to!
there was no question about it!!
me: every Monday she wanted to ask him out and every Friday she wanted to stop loving him
me: it was hard
but she did it
by december 2007 she was over him
or so she wanted to believe
me: she got involved in something else
me: she stopped dreaming
me: she stopped hoping
about him of course
naik: what did she get involved with?
me: and in any case they were just friends
oh..thats a completely different fairy tale
saved for another day
me: so the next year...2008 started
and she was full of resolutions...her 19th year
me: the year of the boyfriend
then one night
night before media studies paper in fact
she was msging him
not only him..other ppl from school too...just to keep her mind off the studying
me: and they msged for a long long time
he cheered her up
like he always did
and she took a psycho test on him
one of those where u ask all sortsa q's and then u interpret answers
he he..towards the end
he asked a very simple question
me: he asked "what if there was someone who knew everything about u and u knew everything abotu that person and the two of u had feelings for each other....what if...
me: i cant get the right words but basically..it sounded like he was trying to say smt
naik: i get it
me: smt...smt i've wanted to hear for a long time
so i was like are u testing me?
me: like u know when a guy wants to ask someone out and he asks a another girl for testing purposes
but then he dint get it
naik: oh yes!
me: and he got confused
and i said yes
me: as in i said i would say yes to him
naik: i get that
me: and then he got some kinda hint
and then he dint msg
and then he called!!!!
me: and then....
me: slowly....arkwardly......the truth came out
it was so arkward
naik: fingers crossed
me: so completely wierding out
naik: 4 the best
me: questions were asked
naik: did he?
me: "Did u have a crush on me?"
naik: did he nt?
me: "Did u know?"
did he ask you out ?
me: "Do you still have feelings for me?"
naik: oh god.. why do i have a bad feeling about this
me: :( see..there was this other girl
me: and if my inbox was not so full i would have got the msgs telling me about her
dont get down for me...there's still a fairytale factor left
( btw i hate happy endings)
me: u see...the boy..the man...he was no ordinary man....
me: he he..this one's bitter sweet
naik: aha.. prince charming
me: he was a prince..
a gentleman of a high stature
naik: get on with what happened
me: so he asked to meet her
to sort things out
she freaked of course
naik: the princess or the other girl?
ok i got it
why she freaked ?
me: but we're talking about a love story here
the princess of course!
she was freaked cos he knew!
naik: aha.. sorry swolpa slow
me: she was freaked cos her dreams were coming true
naik: now continue
me: she was freaked cos once in her life ...for a change..IT WAS REAL!!!
me: so she dint sleep of course
and the exam was like...BALLS!!
he he...and they met
me: and it was outside corner house..teh place she had thought of asking him out to
me: cos he liked mint chocolate chip icecream too :)
naik11: me too..
thats my fav
me: and anyway there was no place ther!!
naik: they could've sat on the ing vysya steos
i always do
me: she was hungry
and she wanted a date
naik: wait.. the airport rd corner house?
me: that wasn't a date BUT STILL!
me: she wasn't wearing her best
she was lock and key earrings and the key got lost that morning
naik: story ra
me: but fortunately she always carried replacements
and he liked it simple
yeah so...princess gets over earrings
gets to this muslim eating place
me: and the tables are far way like from the seats
so she asks him to come sit on her side
and they drag the table closer
and they order
and they eat
and its still arkward
me: ok so he asks the questions
the dreaded ones
she gives the answers the honest ones
he paid btw
we walked a lot
he told me bout this girl
apparently after our phonecall he got the balls to tell her how he felt
at 2 in the morning!!
anyway not my business.....i took him home
yes..we took an auto all the way to whitefield
i was embarrassed at the amount of money he was spending
but let him spend it anyway
Guess she isn’t but I have to complete this….i took him to whitefield
I took him to church
To the hill
The hill from where u can see the whole of my village
The hill with the crucifix
The sacred place
He liked it
He loved it
And we sat there and we talked and he was happy
And I was happy
He slowly opened up to me
We were watching little kids playing
And he compared himself to a lonely one
And from there we went there
We were sitting at the back of a strong pillar…a station of the cross in fact
And I was playing with the sand
Staring at the top branch of the closest tree
And then he asked
“What do you feel for me right now?”
And only one thing was running thru my mind
I said it over in my head..I said it again..I looked at him and said it again…and one of those times..it actually became audible to him
And I pulled back from the stone..the stone..the dream..a flash…
I hunched and my eyes closed
He put his hand on my shoulder and pulled me back…the stone…my head…on his shoulder…small tears..
Not a word was spoken
Slowly the sun set..
Slowly I began to sing
And it was my song
And it was his song
And it was our song
I could smell him
I could kiss him
I was scared
I was happy
I wasn’t even there
Few seconds later he’s saying it back to me
And he means it
Every single syllable of it
Today as she talks to another man..another prince charming..and the music plays and he is close enough
She thinks of that moment and the way she never wanted it to end…the way she never wanted anything to top it…and nothing ever has…
But it had to end..they got up slowly..the princess descended first singing praises to God
“Dyu know what hallelujah means?”
“It means praise the Lord”
“I should have known that….
She’s still in the clouds..he has to pull her off the road…his slightest touch makes her want everything she knows she can never have…
“I’m going to write poems about this”, she says
And she does..her spaces are filled with them
“Please don’t put your life in my hands…I’m a rock and roll band…I’d throw it all away”
He threw it all away…all of it..every single tear of it…
“The dream ended badly”, I told him so
Well, it’s not an end till…
Well, today he has a girlfriend..finally…I’m happy for him…he has a cute phone too ;) I’m happy for him
I miss him sometimes..or I just miss the me that was….
Either way, it’s washed away…
So this is my fairytale and it is bittersweet and it is real and it is still alive…
I still have my barman theory and you never know…
Hope Survives :)
