It was a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Friends playing on tv with bowl of chips on the table and me half asleep on the couch.
Suddenly door bell rang,
Mom open the door.
She came in the room well dressed and informed me that her friends family was going to come today.
But I didn’t pay much attention as I was half asleep and busy watching friends
So she left the room, angrily
2-3 hours passed.
I heard a knock on the door.
Door is open, I shouted
Door opened and I saw a handsome boy walking towards me.
I kept looking at him shockingly and I could feel him getting uncomfortable with my stare so I pulled my eyes away from him.
After a pause of few minutes I said, Hall is downstairs
I know but your mother sent me here as all the grown-ups were discussing about business, he said
‘Okay‘ I said.
Can I sit here? He asked
Yeah sure, I said
I went back to watching friends and offered him some chips. He took the bowl in his hands and started watching friends with same excitement as I did.
I couldn’t resist myself but ask “Are you a FRIEND’s fan too?”
Rather than answering he came up with another question “Who is not?”
After a awkward silence. I asked him annoyingly “Ohh yeah, then tell me who’s your favorite character?”
Joey & Rachel, he said
Cliché I said
How? He asked
Because they are all over Instagram and you are saying it to sound ‘cool’. I said
Fine, its Phoebe! He said
I laughed and said mine too!
We both laughed and kept talking whole evening. Till we heard someone screaming “PRANAY”
I got to go it’s my mom. By the way I am Pranay. He said
Ashika. I said
We said bye to each other and as he was leaving. I wanted to ask his number but I didn’t and went to close the door instead.
As he reached near the door, he turned back and asked “Can I have your number?”
I felt butterflies in my stomach and couldn’t stop blushing but somehow I managed to say YES.
We shared our contact numbers with each other.
From that day till now, we have happily completed 5 years.
And we still watch friends cuddling and half asleep on the couch.
