Not more than 2 hours ago, I had exposed my disgust for Valentine's Day quite obnoxiously. But my friends, what happened in the last hour couldn't have made my hatred for this day more profound than ever.
I had this little crush back there, about 3 years ago. Let's call her AM. Now, AM and I have been real good friends, not keeping up lately but certainly have light conversations at weekends occasionally. Now she pings me up on this valentine day! And at a time when I know things are not going all fine between her and her boyfriend.
AM : Hey! Are you there?
(And I go like, oh boy! She is onto me man! Why else would she text me on valentine's day?
I text AJ.
Me: Man, you're not gonna believe it! AM just messaged me today! Maybe she's going to propose to me!
AJ: Get out of here man! No way! She won't leave her bheem ! (we call her BF bheem :D)
Me: Dude, she's having a hard time keeping up with Bheem these days! And you know, I had always been there for her!
AJ : Hats off dude! You're one lucky bastard ! Girls fall right out of the sky for you!
Me: It's nothing like that.. But I would say this, my charm does work sooner or later ! *Boasting*
Well, I gotta text her back. I don't want to make her desperate!
AJ : You're the man!
(I revert back to texting AM)
Me: Heyy! Sure always am! What's up?
AM : Nothing new, just the same old stuff.
Me: Having fun with Bheem?? Come on, bring it on! Make me jealous. Where did you go?
AM: Umm.. we kinda are not seeing each other for the time being.
Me: Oh! I am so sorry to hear that !
AM: Yeah, me too. But I am past that.
(Me to myself: Here it comes! I've been waiting for this! ooh! I can't believe this! If she was not into Bheem, I am pretty sure, she would have been onto me!)
AM: So, Do you have AJ's number?
Me: Umm... yeah. Hang on a minute. (AJ's number? strange!)
There you go. But What's the deal here?
AM : Oh you know yarr.. I has a crush on him from the beginning, so just...
Me to myself : AJ ! You bloody Son-of-a-#$%@
