A boy was sitting in his room engrossed in playing guitar when another boy enters and sits in front of him.
Boy 1: why do u always come on wrong timing?
He says putting his guitar at a side.
Boy 2: I m ur brother… do I need permission to come and talk to u Manik?
Manik: no Abeer, u don’t, u say
Abeer: why r u so angry?
Manik: because dad again broke my heart today by saying I can’t do anything and m useless…if my family left me on my time of need what’s my fault in it? I wish I shouldn’t have come here.
Abeer: relax bro, everything will be fine, I wonder how will any girl get impressed by u, u r an angry hulk.
Manik: u know how to make me smile na
Abeer: any doubts?
Manik: no..but what u wanted to say to me ?
Abeer: don’t u want to go college?
Manik: no m not going.
Abeer: bro no girl will attend college today because the handsome hunk Manik won’t be there na…what will happen of me?
He says faking sadness.
Manik laughs: OK fine m going…u also make a band of yours like I have made
Abeer: yeah OK.. get ready.
He leaves. Abeer’s dad Aalok Malhotra is a stern man for who the word kindness is rare in front of strangers and Manik was a stranger too as his family didn’t wanted him and so Abeer’s mom Madhvi found him roaming on the roads and took him asking him what’s the matter, she is a kind woman, she cared and loved Manik just like Abeer. But Aalok always differentiated between the brothers and Manik missed his real father. Poor Manik had to bear too much.
Manik gets ready in a white shirt and black jeans with black blazer and looks stunning. He combs his hair and wears his shoes and goes downstairs. Madhvi smiles at him.He too smiles at her and sits beside Abeer. Aalok comes and sits beside Madhvi.
Aalok: good morning
Madhvi: good morning.
Abeer while eating: good morning by me and Manik.
Aalok : Abeer, Manik can speak right?
Manik: good morning dad.
He eats a little then leaves asking Abeer to come soon.
Aalok: why is Manik reacting this way?
Abeer: nothing he is excited for college that’s why, bye dad I am also going. Take care.
He leaves with Manik in their jeep.
Outside space academy, a black jeep stops and Manik and Abeer comes out of it. Every girl’s eyes were on them, Manik shows attitude and doesn’t even looks at them but Abeer smiles at them and goes inside.
Abeer whispers: bro don’t show so much attitude
Manik rolls his eyes and goes different way to the two boys and the girls standing there talking and talking.
Manik: hi guys
Boy: hi buddy
Manik: hi Dhruv
Boy 2: bring Abeer too.
Manik: no Cabir no pranks on him plz
Cabir: OK fine, not on him but on u
Before Manik could say anything, Cabir spills ink on his shirt, Manik’s jaw drops open.
Manik: Cabirrr what did u do
Cabir: what did I do?
He asks blankly as if he did nothing.
Manik: you spilled ink on my shirt.
He says pointing to his shirt but to his shock, the ink wasn’t there anymore. Cabir and the girls giggle.
Manik: the ink was here only.
Cabir: so where did it go?
Manik stays quiet and the others burst into laughter.
Girl: arey it was a prank, this ink disappears within two minutes, it was just to show u how we will trick freshers.
Manik: oh..nice prank Mukti…Bhagwan tumhe jald hi is tension se mukhti de (May God give u peace from this tension )
Manik: Alya won’t u say anything? U r so quiet.
Alya: no nothing, bhai first time didn’t come to college, m scared he’s up to something.
Cabir: no he won’t do anything relax…no group hug today?
They have a group hug.
