After coming back from college, I was getting ready for work in cafe with a smile on my face thinking about specific pair of brown-eyed handsome hunk. I don’t know why I’m feeling so happy. I’m feeling like instead of my lips, my heart is smiling brightly and My eyes are shining thinking about the library encounter with my ‘Mr brown eyes.’
Did I just say ‘MY’?
Mr brown-eyed is definitely rubbing off on me!
But why my heart is beating so fast? The way he winked mischievously today, I just can’t help but blushed at his cute antics.
Will he come today to the cafe?
Do I want him to come?
Shit!!! Relax Nandini!
Chuckling my thoughts, I went to my work but today my whole concentration was occupied by the gorgeous pair of brown eyes. I was, again and again, staring at the door waiting for him to arrive. On one side I was feeling so shy to face him and on other hand I just want him to appear in from of me.
Gawd!!!! What is happening to me?
But he didn’t come!
I would be lying if I will say that I didn’t felt bad but still, chuckling my thoughts I went back to my home.
Should I text him?
After giving much thought I decided to text Manik.
I pressed send and kept my mobile aside as I didn’t get the reply immediately, so I decided to carry on with my college work.
“Heya bro, I have some good news as well as bad news,” Anny entered the house and sat on the couch with a huge grin on her face.
“What?” I raised my brows.
“Abhay asked me to move in with him.” She grinned and I screamed in joy.
“Aww,” I hugged her so tightly. I was genuinely happy for her.
“Bro, are you sure you are gonna be okay being alone? If you say, I’ll not move in with him.” She asked breaking the hug and cupping my face in her palm.
She was concerned about me as usual!
“I’m a big girl, momma.” I said sarcastically and she laughed.
“I know, baby.” She played along hugging me tightly and continued, “but we can post ads for roommates?”
“Anny, don’t think too much about me. Right now you should be happy for yourself, Darling. It’s a new journey for both of you and I’m so happy for you and trust me I’ll play the whole rent, it’s not a big deal. I can take care of myself, so stop worrying,” I assured her.
“No way, you are paying me only half of it even if we don’t find a roommate,” She said firmly and I decided to convince her later.
“I’m gonna miss you so much,” My eyes glistened with tears and I was about to cry.
“Aww, me too. Stop making me cry,” she hugged me once again.
“But I’m gonna come here most of the time, so no worries. Now tell me what happened after the date with Mr Brown Eyes. Did I missed something?”
“Umm… Where do I start?” I chuckled and told her the entire story.
“O..M..G! He is totally smitten and he is also famous, how cool is that? I did tell you if he looks at you, he won’t be able to take his eyes off you, didn’t I?” She said with a ‘told you so’ face.
“What do I do, Anny?” I whined like a puppy making her chuckled.
“What does your heart say?” She asked softly making me close my eyes.
“Mr brown eyes.” I whispered and the gorgeous pair of brown eyes came in front of me making my heart smile.
“When I listen to my heart, it whispers his name.” I said softly opening my eyes and continued, “my heart just want to talk to him, get to know him. Kiss him and you get the idea right? My heart is a slutty bitch.” She laughed at my response.
“Listen to your heart, it’s not like I’m telling you to fall in love with him. I know what you have been through babe, just let yourself loose for once. Just go with the flow,” she rubbed my hands in a comforting manner.
“What if he finds it?” I looked up to meet her gaze and she noticed the fear in my eyes.
“He is not in your life anymore. Just forget about him, he has no control over you anymore,” she reassured me and I nodded.
“Let’s go out and eat, come on.” She dragged me out of the couch.
“Alright, I’m coming.” I laughed and got up.
I forget my phone and once we came back home, I checked my phone and saw a text from Manik. I ran to my room and jumped on my bed, smiling giddily as I opened the text.
Manik: Couldn’t resist my charm for long, could you?
I could imagine him smirking while sending this. I was struggling not knowing what to text back.
Me: You’re so self-obsessed.
I too smirked and texted back and got a reply immediately.
Was he waiting for my message?
Aww… he’s so cute!
Manik: Yes, I’m, baby girl. Because you know I’m so handsome.
He replied with a wink emoji and unknowingly a small smile flashed on my face after reading his message. His baby girl always hitched my breath.
Me: Why do you call me, baby girl?
I texted back, smiling sheepishly.
Manik: Don’t you like it?
He texted and my smile grew bigger.
Me: I asked first. So, don’t you think, I deserve an answer first.
I smirked and played along.
Manik: Because you’re cute and innocent like a baby.
Manik: Now I want my answer.
I blushed as I read his reply. I wasn’t expecting him to be so upfront. I could imagine him smirking while sending this and I was literally struggling not knowing what to answer back.
Manik: I’m waiting.
His reply came, making me more nervous.
Me: I’ll answer when we will meet.
I texted back not knowing how to answer him. I mean I do love whenever he called me by that name. It really creates the volume of butterflies inside my stomach but how can I say this to him?
But shit! I don’t know what got into me, that I send this. Gawd! He must be thinking that I’m so desperate to meet him!
Manik: Smart, girl.
As his reply came, I took a sigh of relief.
Me: I’m still not understanding why you like me.
I texted back.
Manik: I already told you that why I like you, baby girl.
Manik: Don’t you like me?
He sent winked emoji.
Me: Manik, I’m feeling sleepy. Good night.
I wanted to talk to him but to avoid his question, I said good night.
“Now why he’s calling me?” I attended the call with shaky hands.
“Hey, you.” Oh wow, he sounded so fucking hot.
“Hey, what happened, Manik,” I asked shyly.
Oh god, what’s happening to me!
“Nothing, I just want to hear your sugary and sweet voice before sleeping.” A bright smile flashed on my face after listening to his words.
“Just to hear my voice, you called me?” I asked in disbelief, biting my lips.
“Because I like your voice, Baby girl.” He whispered huskily making my heart skipped a beat.
I’m still not understanding how can a person like him likes me. That too in just a few days. We don’t know each other.
He likes me, he likes my voice.
I was lost in my thoughts when he said, “I called you to hear your voice, but you’re so silent. Am I making you uncomfortable?” I chuckled.
He’s just so cute!
“No, actually, I don’t talk much to anybody.” I whispered nervously.
“But the first time when we met, you were talking nonstop.” I narrowed my brows after listening to this.
“What do you mean?” I asked suspiciously.
“We will talk about this when we meet.” he said.
I’m so confused now. It means we met before. I was right. But when? Why I didn’t remember our meet?
“So could we meet tomorrow outside the library, after your class?”
“My classes get over at two in the noon, then I have work after that,” I replied to make sure he was okay with the timings.
“I’ll talk to the owner of your coffee shop, you can take the late shift.” He suggested.
“Um… Okay,” I dragged my voice unsure of what to say next, earning a chuckle from him.
Aghh! When will I learn to talk, it’s so embarrassing.
“I’m gonna sleep, see you tomorrow?” It came out as a question.
“Am I that boring? I’m hurt.” He faked that hurt tone, sounding super cute.
I honestly need to calm my poor heart before I could die of a heart attack.
Okay, that was a bit extreme. Hehe.
“No, I don’t wanna seem boring.” I laughed nervously, playing with the ends of my sleeves.
“You aren’t boring to me, baby girl.” He said in a serious tone, making me blushed harder.
“You are blushing, aren’t you?” As he asked, I widened my eyes in shock.
How the hell did he know?
“No,” I lied suppressing my smile.
“Liar,” He exclaimed and I giggled.
“You look cute when you blush,” His voice sounded husky and I felt a wave of pleasure shooting through my body.
Is it possible to be turned on by just a voice?
“Umm… I don’t think, I’m cute.” I was biting my lips, enjoying this feeling.
“That’s the thing, you don’t realise how beautiful and cute you are which make you even more beautiful and attractive.” Damn, smooth.
“Alright, I get it. You’re expert in flirting.” I teased him at his response and realized how easy it is to talk to him.
“This is the first time, I’m flirting. You’re the first girl.”Now his words shocked me. Am I the first girl whom he likes? I just couldn’t believe it. He’s so cool, smart, charming, rich, popular. How can he be still single?
“Again you become silent.” He said in a totally dramatic tone.
“You’re making me speechless. What can I do?” I chuckled after saying this and continued “I just can’t believe that you’re single.”
“Same to you, baby girl. I also can’t believe that why a girl like you is single. But I’m lucky that you’re single.” He said making me blush even more.
“I’m also lucky.” I smiled widely after thinking this but couldn’t get the courage to tell him.
“I’m really sleeping, Manik now, good night.” I said playfully but a yawn left my mouth at the end of the conversation making him chuckled.
“Alright, I’ll let you go to sleep now. I’ll see you tomorrow?” He said and I was disappointed as we were about to end the conversation.
First I was saying him good night, and now when he asked me to sleep, I didn’t want him to disconnect the call.
What is wrong with me?
“Good night.” I said disappointedly. Like this is the last time I’m talking to him.
“Sleep well, baby girl.” And he disconnected the call and my heart craved to talk to him more.
I’ll be lying if I say I wasn’t looking forward to tomorrow. I was scared of how happy I was feeling. But I wanted to let myself be happy even if it was only for a while before something happens. I fell asleep thinking about a certain someone with chocolate brown eyes.
