Short Story.... Part - II


The picture has nothing whatsoever to do with the story... :)

It was just one early morning at Kabini, where I chanced upon a Teacher's premium Whisky bottle left over from last night & the river slowly flooding in towards the land was just so captivating that I HAD to just capture it on film..
& Voila! Arvind's first few attempts at photography...

I LOVE this picture personally, because it's something I've always dreamt of...
Drinking by the riverside, wetting your feet in the cool river water and feel the chilly breeze brush against your face and a vast expanse of horizon to look upon... And contemplate... Life...


Now, on with the second part of the story... I PROMISE to finish it in the next part.. :P

************************************************************************************

"You think he would've done it?"

"Virgin? Not a chance! With his 'hand's on' approach, I'm sure he'll repel women for miles around."


Virgin had some reputation as a groper. He couldn't keep his hands off his date. Partly due to the fact that he was horny 24x7 and no amount of porn made him even a little bit submissive.


"Good he's coming though... It's been such a long time since I tripped on anyone".

"You remember the last time he got sloshed? He tried making out with 'J'. Haha! She kicked him in the nuts..."


A brief silence... And BB, very slowly turned towards me & said "I'm sorry dude... I forgot."

Even though I'd told them a gazillion times I was over it, they refused to believe me...
Maybe it was because I'd condemned myself to a life of celibacy...
Maybe it was because I'd cut my hand just to see how much I bled...
Maybe it was because I'd moved on from weed to hardcore drugs like X & Acid...
Maybe it was because I'd suddenly started smoking & the fag count rose steadily day by day...

Maybe...
I should've given up a long time back...


But there really was nothing I could do. She chose to move on & left me in the lurch to fend for my pitiful self...
And although I told them I had moved on, I really hadn't... And every time her name came up, I felt my stomach knot up. A feeling of good memories burnt to a crisp and it never did stop burning.


I gave a shrug & walked out of the hospital to light up. I could hear their whispers even as I took just 4 steps towards the exit. I cursed myself for the umpteenth time as I'd forgotten to refill my lighter. Luckily, a tea shop doing brisk early morning business was in the vicinity & I trudged slowly in that direction...


'J' and I had been together ever since I can remember life worth remembering. How we'd met, was a story that fascinated everybody.

We were both stranded in the same dingy elevator in the same crummy apartment building I used to live in and until that moment, we loathed each other... But having nothing to do for atleast 4 more hours, (because our very alert security guard was asleep through the night) we got to talking and the fact that we were both in an inebriated state after partying all night helped us get along... And before we knew it, one thing led to another. The only thing I remember from that night was the look on the watchman's face as he opened the elevator doors the next morning.


AUTHOR'S NOTE: This being a short story, I shall not delve into the ordeal that the narrator & J went through all night. In case your dirty mind requires erotica to 'understand' the story better, contact me personally and I shall dish out the 'details'...
Now, as we were...


There was no looking back ever since. We did everything as a couple. And I mean everything! I was in seventh heaven, whereas 'J'...


'J' had quite a reputation.
A lot of people I knew advised me to stay away from her because she was, to put it very abruptly, a slut. And just the fact that so many of them told me this disturbing piece of news raised my doubts. I lost a great deal of friends while I fought viciously to defend my girl. The one I loved...
Yes... I was in 'love'. Or so I thought...

For that one night she blew it all up would cause me hundreds of sleepless nights wondering where I could've possibly gone wrong... Or just plain, keep me awake thinking about all the things we did and how different it could... Should have been...


She was all over him that night. And he to say, was reciprocating...
& the worst bit of it all, neither were complaining.
She called me later that night and demanded to know why I'd walked off & simply, just like that, I told her to F**k off and that it was over between the two of us...

She, obviously expecting this said something that I'd never forget.
"I know... Guess what... I just screwed him and he's still here... Right next to me... Asleep."
Ever so coolly, like someone just casually blew a smoke ring right in my face.

I slammed the phone down... Cursed... Broke down...
And repeated the process several times...

I've never been myself ever since...

************************************************************************************

I was here alone... Again... Early in the f**kin morning... Again...

We had picked lots & I was the unfortunate loser...

& Virgin's plane wasn't on time either!

I hummed as I finally heard the announcements on the P.A System. I went and stood by the arrival lounge and waited for him...
And I caught a glimpse of him...
And I didn't believe me eyes!


Who was the incredibly HOT babe walking alongside him??
The jokes we were cracking yesterday about him slowly came back to me as if to say 'Yeah! You're funny!'

I guess my face still held that incredulous look as he looked puzzled when we met.
"Hey dude! How've you been? And what's with the stupid look on your face?"

And what happened to him? He was talking... well... Well!!

"I'm good man... Who's this?"...
I smacked myself later for being so forthcoming and rude...

"Oh yeah... This is Tanya... Tanya, meet S", He said ushering her forward as we shook hands.


The rest of the trip in the car was pretty boring, as I was trying unsuccessfully to not fall asleep at the wheel while Virgin chattered animatedly about India and the likes...
I dropped them both off at his place and he said,

"I heard about BB... How is he now? I'll give you a call later today. We should all meet up man."


"Sure... Although, first, I'm gonna catch on some sleep... C ya!"

************************************************************************************

AUTHOR'S NOTE: I know there are a lot of dirty minds at work & questions relating to the level of fiction would obviously be raised. And also as to the existence of any real life characters that might've given me an inspiration. The answer is NO. Which is why I need to include a disclaimer...

The characters in this story are completely fictitious and any resemblance to any person living or dead or somewhere inbetween is purely co-incidental & MAYBE intentional...

& just for the people who know me, the narrator is NOT me... & the name 'J' has nothing to do with my past...


Cheers!!! Until later...

And please do leave your comments about the photograph and how you'd kill to be in a place like that.. :D

"Sex in the elevator"... :P how better can it get. heavy partying., denied bed., stuck in a elevator., with nothing else to do.. might as well... :P

@ Joe - I understand 'sex in the elevator' is soo cliched! & every fiction author uses it to his benefit as have I.. Sex sells!! :P

& YOU ought to pretty much put a shotgun to ur head for missing out on something like that...
Its the closest you could get to surreal bliss in India!! Just do me a favour & visit the place ONCE before you turn 30.. Coz it'll be a completely different experience then..
& ur extended description of the picture.. is just perfect too.. Very perfect.. :)


@ Sups - You're just jealous your large thumb keeps getting in the way of ur taking pictures.. Hah!
& I don't follow birthday rituals for insignificant things.. For example, I don't christen every single new strand of hair that grows atop my head..
& sure.. Diss the author.. I'm just giving my readers a chance to use their own imagination..
For instance, you should brainstorm various names starting with J & S respectively & put those grey cells to the task.. :P
& sorry.. You'll find a bare minimum of tamil as we progress..
As you can see, Virgin has arrived with a lovely lady in tow (who doesn't understand tamil).. So sorry.. Ask someone else for free classes.. :D

@arvind: sex sells man., I swear. Seen hollowman-2? there is is this nudity part in the start of the movie., totally for no reason. bah..

And., kabini is in the plans... :D But not sure when.

You know what., even beer and beach is a good combo. But wont beat the whiskey and dark-river-side combo though :)
