From Balloons to Crackle: Journey of a sweet friendship

Posted by SHRUTHI K MOHAN on Friday, July 23, 2010

Well this post is about a complete stranger who ended up being my best friend forever!!..We werent tat gud friends when we were in11th..Just class mates..
And the story behind the friendship...I blush even now when he brings up the topic..It was the most embarrassing moment for me...I dont believe am posting abt it...

It was the Christmas celebration of 12th!!! Everyone was busy showing off the presents given by their respective Christmas pals!!I still dont remember how it all started..who was the one who brought water balloons to our class..still searching 4 that idiot!!!! I was having fun clicking pics with my Digi cam brand new one..First attack if my memory is ryt was on sudheepta..the topper of bio group..she was attacked with the first water balloon if the reports are to be believed.. then there were several attacks...was laughing at the way people were running through the corridors to take revenge on one another...never knew I was going to be a victim shortly.

It all started when Aryan my bes-tie found a water balloon and started aiming at me....
Exactly at tat time I saw this guy in my class who was packing his bag and was getting ready to leave class..as if he was an alien in our planet..as if it didnt matter wat was going around him..he was in his corner of forest....(I know you are going to kill me for portraying u as an alien!!Friendhsip mein sab kuch chalta hein )So I just pointed at him and asked Aryan to aim at him instead of me..That was all I said..And the series of events what happened after that s history!!!I saw Aryan moving out of the class with his balloon..And I was about to leave the class..when something hit badly on me...I turned around and found I was attacked by a water balloon..but that wasn't what shocked me....when I saw the face behind the attack..I was literally shocked!!!!
The alien in our planet aka the so simple introvert,shy,guy..with a grin on his face..I swear I saw all of his 32 teeth...the guy did have an awesome smile..!!! But that wasn't what mattered..I was wet.and the thought that it was the alien who had attacked me made me mad...yep I was real mad!!!!When I saw that he was leaving...I filed my bottle full of water and tilted it..HE tried to block with AIEEE brochure..hell with the brochure..alien am going to evacuate you from our planet forever...I never knew that bottle can tilt on anyone it likes!!!He managed to tilt it and once again I was completely wet!!!!!!!!! The worst thing happened shortly..I slipped on the water spilled by me and fell on my back in front of the whole class!!!!!!!!!!!For a second I wanted to vanish into thin air..I wanted someone to kill me..I wanted to make a tunnel just there itself..I had mixed emotions..sad,angry,embarassed to the core,helpless,....The first face I saw showed an emotion of pathetic..I didnt have the nerve to face all..felt like the whole world was watching me..as if ..as if he was not the ALIEN it was ME!!!!I vowed not to bring tears and that too due to the mishap caused by that alien never!!FIGHT for yourself!!!I managed to get up somehow(yeah i was such a brave girl u see :P please dont feel bad while reading )..The alien who attacked me had become a native now and I was the alien...When I saw him I felt like I was seeing yam raj for the first time..except tat he didnt have a buffalo...but I could see his two big horns..big mustache..and his laugh llike thunder to my ears..I knew there was nothing to lose..I lost my mind..both my brain and concentration ran off together.and the next moment I was chasing him like a foooooooool!!!!..I raced him up and down the stairs and lost track of him....(learned later from him that he was relaxing in some class and was watching me running throughout the school!!! I know I was a pakka IDIOT)..Even chased him on my friends kinetic..and soon the news that my Digi cam was missing brought me back into the real world...Now I felt sad..I forgot all about the alien and soon everyone including the alien were engaged in searching for my cam...

I never got my cam back..it was lost :(..But those water balloon fights and the series of events that followed gave me a best friend...a friend forever..Though we dont study together now..we have parted our ways..different college..different life..but we haven't changed..though we meet rarely now...those unusual meetings are made sweeter with the crackle(diary milk not the fire crackers he isnt that bad!!:P) he brings with him... All I can say is that its been a sweet journey from balloons to crackles...
But my dear alien...I haven't forgotten the fact that I haven't taken my revenge....Its just that am still not good at aiming... :(
