The board examinations went off well, and the entrances were
nearing. The day came, IIT JEE, and with all the efforts he had put in for, he
had to answer. The day was good, and he returned back home with a hope to make
it to the dream gates. He was doing this for his parents, for the love seemed
to have ended.
Rohit appeared for more entrances, and what happened next at
another entrance was something he had never thought of. It was VIT’s entrance
examination when Rohit reached his centre that Sunday. The walk down to the
gates seemed normal when he saw something he could not believe. The list on
which the sitting arrangement was displayed, had a girl wrapped in blue top
checking it. Struck in disbelief, Rohit could not believe the thumping of his
heart that he felt at that particular moment.
“It’s M-E-H-E-R”, his heart cried out and the beat
seemed to take his breath away.
Almost as happens in maximum flicks, the whole thing seemed
to stand still, when Rohit’s eyes struck on his fantastico Meher and the peppy music started its rhythm in the background. He was standing dumb. She greeted him with a broad
smile and as the hero walked in towards his love, the villain had already set
in, none other than her father. The gates opened for their purpose, and Rohit
almost mapped Meher’s building in which she had been allotted. This exam seemed
tough, Rohit rubbed his brains into the paper and submitted it. The impact of not doing well was the distractions because of sudden appearance of his girl, Meher. With little
disappointment of not doing so well in the exam, Rohit went outside and stood
under the shade of a huge Gulmohar tree.
The bell rung, and Rohit was searching a girl wrapped in
blue. He kept looking at all the blues in search of his life and the moment
came when life walked in. She came in small footsteps, and the smile that had
kept Rohit spirited for her memories engraved in his heart.
“How are you?” the same question the stupid asked.
“Good, and you?” said Meher, her words seemed like
spreading a fragrance around.
Rohit was lost, lost in her grin, he was dumbstruck because
it was thousands of those dreams he had seen her in and now it stood in reality.
“I….am….fine”, he said and both laughed to
perfect timing.
Every step he walked with her towards the gate, seemed an
era in itself. He did not know what to say, both seemed the same.
“Dad’s here, I’ve to go”, said the girl in blue.
“I do not know what goes on ahead in life. For the
smallest of gifts that I can give to you, is a wish that you remain happy all
your life”, said a lyrical Rohit bidding bye to his peppy dreams.
She walked past the gate, and turned around just before she
left. Her eyes had a strange calmness, it seemed as if she had gone through a
lot.
With emotions bursting out in Rohit’s heart, he cried out to
say.

“We’ll meet again”, an elated Rohit said.

The next part follows!!
