Shonali n Sid were two great friends...She was a Delhi girl n Sid was a student at IIT Kanpur..They were in touch and used to talk frequently even though they were not in the same city.Finally they were about to see each other after a long time..Shonali was waiting for Sid at the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station,excited to meet him..
She just saw him coming out of the Yellow Line...
Hey! Hi Sho!!
fed up of that crowd at the platform, they sat on a bench n started talking..
God! You wont ever stop calling me Sho,you know I hate that name...
Alright,Shonali Ji.. by the way, you have lost weight...lookin good
Naah,no way,I think I've gained quite a lot of weight...I'm like..such a fatso..
So do you expect me to say,"Sho,you look awesome,incredibly slim" and repeat that sentence n number of times...Whats wrong with you girls..Why dont you just accept that you have lost weight...Why do you have to argue unnecessarily..
Ok,Ok...Ya,you have seen me after so many months...so..maybe. ermm..black colour suits you alot..You used to look like a complete nerd,you look much better now..
Both of them were actually wondering how its so very easy to talk for hours n hours through gtalk,sms n phone calls and why does it become difficult to keep a conversation alive when you are talking face to face..
Shona, m starving yaar..lets go to CCD!
Ya..You know what, Shona sounds much better than Sho..
Hmmm, I know that Sho!
Sid!!! you are... you are just...like.....aarrgghh
This time,Sid just smiled...They were there at Cafe Coffee Day now...'
Sho, I jus forgot,you hate coffee, dont you?
Ya, i hate coffee.. I'll have something else..When are your friends coming..You guys are going to watch a movie, right?
Yup.. Raajneeti at PVR Plaza... What bout your friends..Lemme guess..You must be going to Janpath or Kamla Nagar or some kinda mall..I cant understand why girls love shopping..
Shut up Sid, shopping is fun..n ya, m waiting to watch Raajneeti too.. As always,Ranbir Kapoor is looking awesome..he looks cute in every other movie,this time he is looking really smart too.. n for a change, even Katrina is looking fine...
What do you mean... she always looks beautiful... everytime..
For about 15 minutes, they kept on talking about Raajneeti, Katrina Kaif, latest music,latest movies n endless stuff...then all of a sudden, Shonali said..
Sid,whats up with that girl in your college..Did you talk to her again?
Shonali, what the hell made you think of her...You keep saying that I go out of the topic while talking,that all guys go out of the topic.. tell me, when we were talking about movies n all, why the hell did you start talking about her all of a...
Look, I'm really really really sorry Sid, I just asked coz.. I mean..
Its ok Sho, I can understand..you were concerned about me..I told you, I can see things cant be the way I want them to be n m really disturbed about it..She takes me for granted, as if I dont exist..
Sid, its better if you move on.. really..I mean, remember I had gone through a similar phase once..about 10 months ago..You had told me to accept n move on ..thanks for the way you had supported me then n sorry for asking this stupid question now..
No need to thank me Sho..I always tell you bout everything because no one else understands me the way you do..I can share every damn thing related to my life with you..You are a true friend,Shona..Its great to talk to you..I have never seen a girl like you..
Siddharth Sharma..Listen.. To hell with her now.. really, you are a perfect guy..She was unlucky she lost a great guy like you...n m not saying so coz you are a close friend, m saying so because I know this..
Finally, there exists a girl who thinks I am perfect.. thank you Sho..
Shut up Sid...(This time, she blushed n smiled as if she didn't actually mean what she said..as if she wanted Sid to speak even more n tease her even more...)
N then,Sid started talking bout something else...
How is your younger brother doing.. Is he still making those sketches n playing cards of those Japanese cartoons..Naruto n all...
He is as irritating as ever..Keeps disturbing me all the time...n he has finally sold those cards to his friend for a thousand bucks..
Stop talking bout that idiot now..
Yaar, I just received a message from a friend, I guess we'll have to leave now..
Ya, even my friends must be waiting for me...We should leave now...
While they were coming out of the Cafe Coffee Day..Shonali started talking again..
Sid,it was nice to see you after a long time...
Yeah, it was good to see you Shona!
I just noticed something bout you..You call me Shona whenever you are emotional..
Ermm.. really..You think I am an emotional guy?
Of course..n dont you dare challenge my observation..
So they were standing near the F-Block of the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station.. Shonali just said "Goodbye, Sid".. ...... n then, Sid just hugged her, n noticed the way most of the people at the Dwarka platform of the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station were staring at them, God knows why..
So Shonali enjoyed every bit of the day, meeting Sid, hanging out with her friends..Before going to sleep, she recalled everything..She started thinking about that conversation.. She could recall it word-to-word.. She enjoyed thinking about the way Sid had said, "I have never seen a girl like you.." n then, she herself did not realize when she started imagining about something else .."Why were all those people staring at us at the Metro Station.. All friends hug each other, whats the big deal.. Anyways, is Sid really a perfect guy, well, he is a perfect friend for sure.. but then, he is such an idiot, he's absolutely hopeless, pathetically stupid..Why am I thinking about it.. Is it like, I have a crush on him or something..Naah, no way, for God's sake.. Me n Sid together.. as a couple.. Not possible..... Oh crap, what the hell am I thinking..Well, Sid and I, best buddies, everything is just so beautiful..He understands me well and then, I am what I am when I am with him..Had he been my boyfriend,I guess, probably things would not have been as beautiful as they are..So, I am lucky enough to have a friend like Sid..We'll always be friends..no..good friends..in fact..best friends..always and forever..God knows why I had started thinking like a silly bimbo..
Shonali, almost laughing at herself now, was still not able to sleep, laughing at all her friends who used to think that Sid and Shonali are Made For Each Other types..thinking that its just so great to have a friend who will always be there for you..thinking bout so many things.. and realizing that friendship is the loveliest relationship you can think of..and feeling that life is just so sexy n she could not stop smiling.....
