How I started so Far!!!

"What the f***, Its so damn hot here!!!" I was really pissed but yeah not obviously because of the heat out there but because of the real badly written exam for which I traveled complete 5 hours to reach the center on time. It was hot as well so my temper reached its highest levels. 

Well, normally I am really a very calm person but this whole thing really made me go out of my control.  The bus was stopped at the depot and was about to leave. I eagerly looked out of my window as I was waiting for my uncle who had gone to buy something to drink for us. 

"Is any one coming here, I mean on the next seat from yours??" I looked up at the face and turned back. "People always find the way to trouble you when you already in a bad mood". I thought. 

"Excuse me, I am asking you." It was him again. I had to look at him.

A really fair tall boy, mush have been 6 ft. or so, was standing there hanging a tiny shoulder bag, drenched all in sweat. I pitied him and cursed myself for being so arrogant. He must also be feeling what I was.

"Yes!! My Maternal uncle is coming on this seat." and I turned again at the window.

"Where the hell Uncle has gone leaving me in trouble. God know!!" I was annoyed.

"But ma'am this seat the three seater, I mean three people can sit here. Is anyone else is also coming??" and he lost my all pity.

"No, No one else" I had given up.

He smiled and sat there, adjusting his bag in as much of the place he could. I looked at him once then turned back again to the window.

"Why you seem so angry? See you got few lines on your forehead." He smiled again.

"None of your business" and I hated him. Yes!! He was elder than me but so what? It doesn't give him any rights to talk to me. Weirdo.

It was the summers after my high school and was all set to get in my college. Today was my 1st entrance exam and I did horribly bad plus the heat and now this nonsense guy had to come to worsen that.

"Dude! Shift a bit" it was my Uncle. I turned my gaze from window to him and stared. He was like only 8 years older than me and really friendly so I could stare.

"Oh!! Finally.. What took you so long Mamu?" I bet he could sense the anger in my calm words with smile.

"I am really very sorry but It was all mess. Couldn't find a store only." He meant it.

"Hii" It was Mr. tall and fair.

"Oh!! Here!! Hi.. " and what the heck. My uncle actually smiled at him. F***. I wished they don't get friendly to turn my journey a disaster.

"Where you Guys going??" I really wondered why the hell he is so curios about knowing that where we people are heading to. Why I even thinking about this guy!! God! Rescue me.

And hell!! It turned out as we all were going to the same place. Oh Crap!!

My Uncle asked me about my exam and about the questions in the paper and as like always no one on the earth would want to talk about their exam if it was horrible. 

I told him few questions I dint know the answers of. Someone had to speak so that Guy commented answering those questions "Easy the paper was, Man!! How it went??"

And my hate crossed all limits. Now who the hell is he to comment something about my paper. Okay!! He knows more than me so what!! He would try to prove me dumb now.

I remained quite as it was the best option I thought that time and turned back to window. Now the air was really blowing cool and soothing..

Anyway I tried hard sleeping as those guys turned into chatter boxes. Well, better to say complete chatter boxes!!

I slept for good two hours and woke up to find My uncle sleeping and that guy looking at me plus one another Man staring at us both.

I looked at him. Raised my eyebrows which meant "whats going on??" and he smiled and nodded as "Nothing".. 

I turned my face again back towards window and smiled. Why? I don't know.  I just did. After that many times I turned back to find him looking at me. I felt like I have grown up now as I really had a strange feeling inside. Still I decided to ignore that. Mean while my Uncle woke up.

"You awake? When did you woke up?" He asked.

"Its been a while Mamu." I replied slowly.

Okay!! So we were about to reach our destination. It was dark out. He offered me his no. but din't ask for mine when mu Uncle got down on one station to get something to eat.

"Hell, why would I? I barely know him." I thought and  I denied but politely. 

I looked around. Almost everyone was sleeping in the bus.

As soon as my uncle came the bus started moving. "Just few minutes more and we'll be home" he said. He sounded tired. 

We both looked at each other at the same time. It was awkward. We were about to reach like in 5 minutes. He was getting down on the next stop of ours.

We moved towards gate. I was behind my Uncle but suddenly I felt a pat on my shoulder. I looked back and it was him.

"You forgot something" and handed over me my small wallet which may have slipped out of my pocket while sleeping. 

"Thank You" and I was really thankful. 

We got down while he was standing at door waving at us.

Later I came to know his name was Deven and was doing engineering from Chennai. Plus I found out his no. in my wallet.

How does it really matter?? I not gonna call him ever. Huh!!!
