First of all, Sorry to all the readers of this ff and also Ishq F(o)re(ver) one’s. I don’t like to delay, but I was also not able to write?.. As now we have holidays, the good news is, I can write. And I’ll try to post one or two parts this ff and also of Ishq F(o)re(ver). Stay tuned for my uploads ?
Living a Lie : Part-3
Oh my gosh!…. what I’ve got myself into? Why did I even agree? Now I’m dead. Literally “D-E-A-D!”
Alyssa and I are standing in our school parking, waiting for our very own ‘MUSKETEERS’. I know that I made a big mistake playing S-T-D. Aly used my dare as a weapon and now I’m in a big trouble and I’ve also got a song fitting my current situation. Its Taylor Swift’s – ‘Trouble’………. Just kidding, Nah!
Putting my thoughts aside, I saw them (guess who? ? ) entering the parking area and a mischief smile replaced my tensed one. I saw Aly and found her tensed. You know why? If not, then here’s the replay-
As she said that, I, without wasting any second, take that chance and put the dare in front of her.
“Ok Aly, you have to propose Sid for a coffee date”
“Yes Aly, you picked the dare”
“Sona, please….Pretty please?”
“No pretty no ugly please Aly, you are doing it”
“But he isn’t here”
“You’ll do that after the school gets over and I’m the chief witness for it.”
Got it??? Yeah! So, now she will propose Sid for a coffee date and I’ll get a privilege to watch her doing that. I know they like each other and now they have to accept it. By hook or by crook. ?
“No Sona, I can’t”
“It’s not fair. Are you going or I call them here?”
“NO! I’m going, (mumbling to herself) God, please help me. “Om bhur bhuvah svaha…….”
I chuckled and said “Gayatri mantra will not help you Aly. This isn’t an exam. So, stop overthinking it. Just go and ask him.”
She begins to make her way towards them. She took two steps forward, but then again came back. It’s been 10 minutes and she still hadn’t reached half of her destination. Seeing her actions, I got an idea that she can’t do it herself, means she need someone to show her the right path ? .And I’m there na?, I’ll do that for her.
Without even waiting for a second, I hold her hand and directly dragged her towards the boys, leaving her standing exactly in front of Sid.
The boys were confused, obviously because they don’t know what has happened today. They don’t even have a slightest idea of what I and Aly have done. I would have to tell him about this.
“Sid, Aly have to tell you something.”
“Alyssa? What?” Sid asked, sounding pretty much like Sid ?
“Umm…..Sid, Will you….wiill yyoouu….ummmmm”
“Just say it Aly.” I forced her.
Typical Alyssa style. Let me tell you one thing, she have this weird thing. Like when she is nervous or when she knows that what she was going to say is not valid, she will do this, she will say it FAST means without……WITHOUT any blanks or stops. She always does this and now I’m comfortable with that.
“Huh, What?” All of us said at the same time.
“Jinx! Yes, I got you all. Now do not say a word and just listen to what she is saying” I said to all three of them, bounding them in the curse of jinx so that they can’t speak.
FOR INFORMATION ONLY: MEANING OF JINX.
A jinx can be initiated when at least two people say any same word or phrase at the same time. One of them then calls “jinx” on the other.
The game ends when someone speaks the jinxee’s first name, or the jinxee speaks. In the latter case, the jinxee loses the game, and often a penalty is exacted, typically a punch on the arm.
“Aly, last time I’m telling you. Say it.”
“Okay. Sid, Will you go on a coffee date with me?”
[Sid shocks?, Alyssa rocks?? ]“Sid, you can speak now. You’re free from the jinx.” I informed him, even when I know it isn’t the reason why he is mute.
“Alyssa,… yes.” Siddy boy answered.
“YES!” I said, feeling excited.
“Okay, so, tomorrow?” She asked him, behaving as if he is our principal and she is there asking for his permission.
“Tomorrow, 7:00 pm”
“Okay, so,…. bye”
As we turned to leave the place, Aly dragged me to one corner and then with an evil smile on her face said, “ Now your turn Ms. Sonakshi Bose, go and start pretending as you are in love with Dev Dixit. I’ve done my part, now you!”
“Aly, but how can I suddenly go and do something like that. It’ll be weird.”
“No more excuses, start something. Today is just a trailer Sona, your romance movie will start from tomorrow and will last for 5 days. I’m soooo much excited to see that.”
“You are not that Aly which I know. You can’t be my BFF. I hate you”
“blah…blah….blah….You should have thought about that before letting me ask Sid for a coffee date. Who was the one behind all this? YOU! Now suffer.”
“I hate you”
“I love you too.”
“I don’t love you”
“I know, because now you love Dev na?”
“Yes, you love Dev and make him also fall in love with you.”
“You are just unbelievable!”
“Thanks! I take that as a compliment. Now, you go. Show me what you got baby.”
I proceed towards Dev for, god knows why? I don’t even know what I’ll do after reaching there. How can someone pretend to be in love with someone and with the addition of half of our school knowing, watching that..?
I was in my thoughts, and don’t know what happened. Someone collide with me and my leg twisted. I was just going to fall when Dev came to my rescue. He held my waist, preventing me from falling and when I saw in him, I got lost in his eyes ?. The world around me stopped and I can see only him.
Looks like it isn’t that hard to pretend to be in love with someone this handsome. Isn’t it???
