Rishi and Vedhika are childhood friends as well as neighbors. Vedhika is a chatter box, whereas Rishi is a silent listener. They are extreme opposite with each other, yet they are always together. They both share the same class in college, so their journey to and forth will be always together. It was one of the usual days of their college when it all happened.
After their class Rishi and Vedhika were on their way back to their home. In their journey, Rishi was little worried for Vedhika, because unusually our chatter box was full on silent mood today. Actually she was in her deep thought, but about what?? That was unknown. Rishi was so eager know the reason behind her silent mood, so he initiated the conversation.
Rishi : Vedhika.. hey .. Vedhika..(shaking her from her deep thoughts)
Vedhika : hmm.. ( in her deeps thoughts)
She was not yet ready to come back from her deep thoughts, so she just ‘hmm’ as a response to his query which made him startle at first.
Rishi : Vedhika.. (in her concern) What happened to you? Why are you so like this??
She came back from to the reality when those questions hit her ears.
Vedhika : ah..hmm .. (coming back from her thoughts) Nothing Rishi..wo.. and what do you mean by like this? I am always like this..
Rishi : oh really! You are unusually silent and you are saying, you are always like this? When was those moments? (funny tone) actually I can’t remember any such occasions..
Vedhika just pass him a look with raising her left eyebrow and turn her face to the window side of their car. Rolling his eyes at her gestures, he again tried to pull up the conversation further.
Rishi : okay.. just tell me ..What is the problem Yaar?
Vedhika : problem ! (facing him) what problem?? There is no problem. And what made you think so?
Rishi : hmm.. it’s just because unlike every other day, today I am feel so noisy and disturbance here .(teased her with a smiling face)
Vedhika : really.. Very funny..(making a face)
Rishi : ok.. jokes apart.. now tell me what’s the matter?
Vedhika : what matter?
Rishi : oho.. now please tell me the matter yaar.. why are you been so silent today? what happened?
Vedhika : actually.. I was thinking ..
Rishi : about what?
Vedhika : hmm about..(eyeing him) hey lets go to our favorite place..( all of a sudden) I want to ask u something..
Rishi : ok then.. Let’s go… but what you want to ask??
Vedhika : that I will ask you only when we reach there (gives a sweet smile) ok.. now make it fast..
Rishi began to drive to the sea shore, which is their most favorite place and Vedhika was all back with her chit-chat chatter box mode which made him content. He was glad that she was back to her normal, but was little curious about what she will be going to ask..
At last they reached beach, their destination. Vedhika was so much into the ambiance and surrounding of the sea. She literally dragged Rishi to everywhere from the shore to ice cream stall. Finally they occupied on some rocks. Rishi helped her to sit on them with her ice cream, and then joined himself with her..
Rishi : so as now we reached here and you have already got your ice cream..
But before he could ask her or even complete his sentence, she just moaned with her chatter.
Vedhika : mm.. (moaning) Yeah.. It’s so yummy yaar..(enjoying her ice cream)
Rishi : ahaa.. by the way.. Do u remember the reason why we are here for?(pointing out the fact)
Vedhika : o.. yeah.. I totally forget about that..

Passing him a ‘not-so-cool’ look she began.
Vedhika : hmm… ok.. now I want your answers ..
Rishi : ok. Shot!
Vedhika : I want sincere answers..!
Rishi : okay..
Vedhika : and true answers..!
