The GEEK The Ghost -11

This story is based on some true events, however it has been fictionalized and all persons appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

"So you are saying this is not a proposal or something like that?" asked OD2
They were all sitting in the Cafe Galactica -OD1,OD2, & HEX1 , the Human Expert who is certified professional in studying human behavior.It is rumored that he was actually trained in earth by living among the earthly mortals.
OD2: but i have seen in the archives ,this is the same words they say when they make or enter a commitment
HEX1:true,but u are taking it in face value.Just because they said doesn't been they are committed to each other plus same words mean different things in different contexts
OD2 : but the context here hold good right? i mean he is a boy she is a girl, both are single ,talk daily.
HEX1: It is not that simple.There are many more variables involved in it.I cannot explain sitting in a coffee shop .You have to study million cases before generalizing.Also i have seen the earlier transcripts and they both have said the same lines to other people too,close entities,biological relations like parents,brothers etc
OD1 stopped sipping his Grande Latte and broke his silence.
OD1: what's your point?
HEX1: they are just Good Friends, Nothing more Nothing less

"We are just good friends,nothing more nothing less"
DJ said it out loud as if it was a press meet and took a sip of Iced Green Tea. He was surrounded by his friends in Infinitea
"ooo really??" "yeah right " "i believe you man" " "If you say so" " "are you sure?"
His friends responded with many varied answers,but none of them seem to accept what he said.
DJ: i am sure

6.20 am
The streets were filled with morning mist..Lazy Bangalore was still rolling under the sheets.
DJ was walking as fast as he could..he felt the his heart was pounding "Last time" he thought "let it be the first & last time....no more dating....no more chatting.... just hi ,hello thats it...have enough trouble already"
As he neared the bus stop..he froze.....
DG was sitting inside the bus stop..She was shivering due to the cold air.
Something melted away from his mind...
"hi"
"hi"
"when did u come?"
"15mins before "
"ooh..but u said 6.30 how come u reached soon"
"no traffic na so reached early"
DJ was feeling bad for keeping her wait in this cold.
DG : one bus went sumtime back
DJ: u could have gone na
DG: i was waiting for u
*****
They got in the bus
******
"How is ur aunt? "
" we were talking all night.... didn't sleep at all"
"Sleep now.. it will be atleast an hour before we reach college"
"hmm"
DJ looked at her sleeping peacefully.He kept looking....His mind was calm , there was no rush..it was good feeling .....he remembered how he when he saw his Dear Dolphin ...this was nothing like that... He was sure ... now all his doubts flew away....
DG opened he eyes and saw him looking her.
"what?"
"nothing go to sleep"
"k"
His mind was clear - She trusts me... I trust her...I don't care what they say, what others think..we understand each other..and nothing else matters....
DJ said to himself "We are friends and Come what may we will be best friends forever... nothing more, nothing less"
To be Continued..........................................
